April Fools Classic at IRCR Raceway March 29 – April 2 365 Entries
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.

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.

I made the 3-hour drive up to Medford, Oregon, for the 2nd round of the yearly NCSOS series. The 2nd round of the series would be held at Crown Raceway, just outside of Medford, Oregon located on Chad Paris’ property. This meant for some real off-road racing! I would end up practicing all day Friday and was able to start with a good base setup for all of my cars. Tires would play the biggest role in setup, once I found the right tires my cars were dialed for racing on Saturday. With 60 entries and around 20 E-Buggies, I knew it would be for some good competition.

Feeling confident going into qualifying, I would go ahead and TQ all three rounds of qualifying in the E-Buggy class for the overall going into the triple A-Main events. It would be almost the same way for Pro Nitro Buggy, I would be on a TQ run but unfortunately my tires would come unglued and end my race.  Luckily I would have good runs in my last two qualifiers putting me as the overall TQ.

All of my Tekno cars were amazing with the help from my Pro-Line M3 LockDowns!

After a long hiatus from 1:10 racing to focus more on 1:8 due to the upcoming worlds, I decided it was time to get some 1:10 wheel time in.  After the long 4.5 hour drive south to San Jose, we finally arrived at the track. (NorCal Hobbies)  I would run 2 classes, 4WD Buggy and Mod 2WD Buggy.  On practice day, I was struggling with setup, the track provided very unique conditions from what I was used to.  It would be SUPER high bite clay paired with massive jumps and tight 180’s.  Going into qualifying I still wasn’t happy as I could’ve been with my cars.  Luckily they would run 4 rounds of rocket round qualifying, which meant they would only take your one fastest qualifier and that would seed you into your main.  With this style of qualifying, I didn’t have to worry as much about every round of quals and focus on one good run once I got my cars dialed in.

Had a great time at the Memorial Day Shootout at CVR Raceway!

I decided to run my Tekno NB48.3 Nitro Buggy and EB48.3 Electric Buggy.  I would arrive at the track Friday afternoon for some practice, with how similar the track conditions were to my home track, I ended up not having to change a single thing for the setups.  I would have some good luck in qualifying taking the TQ in E-Buggy and starting 2nd in the Pro Nitro Buggy Main. I would finish 2nd right behind Phillip Atondo.

I made a good decision on Tires and would have a good start and almost had a flawless race, I would take the win.

Mason used Pro-Line SwitchBlade Tires and Trifecta Wing.

Had a great time at the first round of the NCSOS series held at Silver Dollar Raceway. I would end up TQ’ing 2 of the 3 rounds in Pro Nitro Buggy which would put me as overall TQ. E-Buggy qualifying didn’t go quite as I would of hoped, I ended up 3rd going into the Main. I made a few more changes before the A1 Main and was way better! I ended up taking the win by 10-seconds over 2nd place. Read the rest of this entry »

Silver State Race at RC Tracks of Las Vegas
Classes Raced: Open Nitro Buggy and Open Electric Buggy

Finally I am home from the 2016 Silver State race!  I would arrive in Vegas late Wednesday afternoon to setup camp and prepare for Thursdays open practice.  After a good nights rest I was ready for Practice day!  It came to my surprise that the track crew had put on a glue like substance on the track to hold the dirt together as well as increase traction.  After watching a few guys ahead of me run, I instantly realized that the track had a insane amount of traction!  We ended up completely changing my setup on both of my cars before I even went on the track to accommodate the traction.  As practice day went on I become pretty comfortable with the layout, I still had to get used to the traction but I felt confident going into qualifying on Friday.

Once again it was Friday night which meant it was club racing at Outback Raceway in Chico, CA. I decided to run my Mod 2WD B5M and my mod 4WD XB4. This would also be the first race on the new layout, which was very technical track.
