Once again I would make the 5 hour drive south for the annual North vs South race held at CVR 2.0 in Madera, California.  Starting with my base setups, my cars were as close to perfect as you can get on Friday practice.  Without making any setup changes, I had a lot of confidence going in racing on Saturday.

 My Tekno cars were phenomenal with the help from my Pro-Line M3 Hole Shots and Tekin electronics!   Read the rest of this entry »

Had a great time at this year’s Fall Brawl at Amain’s Silver Dollar Raceway. The new 1:8 and turf 1:10 layouts were pretty simple as I was able to get adjusted pretty fast. Going into Saturday I felt pretty confident.

My Tekno cars were perfect all day along with my Pro-Line Tires! Thanks again to all who helped throughout the day! Read the rest of this entry »

Would make the four-hour drive down to Reno Nevada for their first annual Whip-It RC Stateline Nationals. I’d be mainly running the new Tekno EB410 Buggy, I would also be running my 2WD Mod Buggy for a second class. The track would be unlike most 1:10 tracks I’m used to, it would be bumpy with traction fluctuating. I spent most of Friday getting the buggies good and where I wanted them to be.

For qualifying I would have a good first-round grabbing the TQ in 4WD and snagging a 2nd in 2WD, for the last two rounds I would have some issues in both cars. I would end up tying for the TQ in 4WD, unfortunately I would lose the tie-breaker and start second for the main. As for 2WD I would have to settle for starting 3rd in the Main. We would run a single six-minute main in 4WD and an 8-minute Main for 2WD.

Pro-Line MC Positrons and Electrons were Amazing as always! Read the rest of this entry »

This last week I attended the ROAR 1:8 Electric Off-Road Nationals held at Amain’s Silver Dollar Raceway. I would run both Truggy and Buggy. Wednesday practice would go smooth making only a few small suspension changes to my cars. Since the track changed only 30% from the old layout, I would feel pretty comfortable right away. Thursday would be two rounds of seeding practice. I would get two decent runs in each class putting me in the B-Main re-sort in both classes.

My Tekno cars were outfitted with Pro-Line X3 Hole Shots and Trifecta Wing Read the rest of this entry »

This Last weekend I attended the annual Memorial Day Shootout held at CVR Raceway in Madera California.  I arrived at the track late Friday evening for some practice before we would get into qualifying/racing on Saturday.  I was only running pro nitro buggy so that meant I could focus more on setup rather than track time.  I ended up only making a couple changes to my car before I felt super comfortable with it going into Saturday morning.

Even with the dry track conditions, my M3 Hole Shots were dialed… Read the rest of this entry »

I made the long 9-hour drive south by myself to the annual gas champs held at the Pro-Line Test Track.  I would run all 3 pro classes as usual.  Practice went good only making some shock adjustments for the track.  Qualifying would go great for me, qualifying directly into the Pro Nitro Buggy Main as well as the E-Buggy Main. I was also able to get a 2nd for the round in E-Buggy behind Ryan Lutz and ahead of Ryan Maifield!  Unfortunately in Truggy I would have engine issues in qualifying which forced me to be in the B-Main.  I would have a clean run, lapping the field to get the bump to the Main.

Overall it was a great weekend of racing! All my Tekno cars were amazing with the help from Pro-Line X3 Hole Shots and my Tekin electronics.   Read the rest of this entry »

Classes Raced: Mod 2WD & 4WD Buggy

massonaprilfool17-2

I decided to make the long 10-hour drive east to Salt Lake City Utah for the 29th annual April Fools Classic.  I got to the track Wednesday and practice all day. With the dirt being similar to what I was used too, my cars were stuck to the track right away.  On Thursday we would a controlled practice for most of the day followed by one round of seeded practice for our qualifiers on Friday.

Both of my cars were amazing on my Pro-Line MC Positrons along with my Tekin RSX speed controls and gen3 motors!

Finally home and rested from the 2017 Dirt Nitro Challenge. Had a pretty up and down week of racing with a lot of bad luck. I would have really good E-Buggy qualifying on the rough track which would position me in the B-Main of Pro E-Buggy. And in pro nitro buggy, it seemed like I couldn’t catch a break. I would have transponder issues in Q1 and break on the final lap in Q3 which would put me in a pretty low Main come Sunday.

“In the race warm-up the car felt AMAZING on my Pro-Line M3 ElectroShots, I felt super confident on bumping.” Read the rest of this entry »

Top Gun Shootout, SDRC- San Diego

Finally home and rested from the 2016 Top Gun Shootout at SDRC in San Diego. With 2 days of practice I would have plenty of time getting my cars dialed in for Saturday. I would run mod 2WD and 4WD Buggy along with 4×4 SCT thanks to the guys at Tekno!

My MC Pro-Line Electron and Positron Tires were glued to the track Read the rest of this entry »

Another year of the NCSOS series (Northern California Southern Oregon Series) has come and gone. The last round would be held at Silver Dollar Raceway in Chico, California. I would run pro nitro buggy along with E-Buggy. With everything working great in qualifying, I would TQ every round in both classes.
