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.

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.

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 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.
