Saturday March 4th was the first race in the ROAR Region 2 tenth scale points series in Winchester, VA at Adrenalin RC. The unusual weather in the northeast with high temperatures of thirty seven degrees would prove to be a challenge for the drivers. The event gathered 70 entries to battle it out to see who could get traction and maintain the feelings in their throttle fingers.
Ethan entered the event in the two and four wheel drive modified buggy classes.
Both of his buggies were equipped with Pro-Line Transistors in the front and Hole Shot tires in the rear in M4 compounds.
After 3 rounds of qualifying, Ethan would start in the top qualifying position for both classes and complete the sweep of A-Mains, finishing first in both features. Read the rest of this entry »

Weekend Recap: I drove up Wednesday morning and would get there for the 10am start time of open practice. Wednesday would be open practice, Thursday controlled (seeding) practice, Friday Q1 and Q2, Saturday Q3 and Q4, and Sunday all the Mains. The track looked good, pretty technical, but nothing too difficult, looked good for racing as well. I was starting with my car setup’s just like how I left the last day I was racing up there in July. I had my tires all mounted and my whole game plan for the week ready to roll. I hit the track and the first day didn’t seem to go as I had thought. I searched for traction ALL day, I just never felt in the track, and it was getting frustrating. I knew my setups were close, and the other top P-L drivers were going good, I didn’t know what was going on. This track is all about tires, so I figured that must be where my issue is. I had my game plan on my tires, break them in on the drill, only using a rag with sauce, and then a dry rag to get them hot. It just wasn’t working though. Read the rest of this entry »
On August 9th I ran the ROAR Region 8 race.
I ran Nitro Truggy and 4WD Short Course.
In Truggy I qualified 3rd in the A-Main behind 2 other Tekno team drivers.
I ran a very clean race and 18-minutes in of a 45-minute main I was in 3rd a lap ahead of 4th.
When I came in for a pit stop my pit guy accidentally spilled a bunch of fuel in my truck causing it to flame out. Once we got it started I was in 4th a lap down from 3rd. I did manage to get the lap back and ended up finishing 9 seconds off of 3rd place taking the 4th place spot.
I ran M3 Hole Shots the entire day.
In Pro 4 I qualified 2nd behind another fellow Tekno team driver after 3-Mains and a couple small mistakes I ended up taking 3rd overall.

This year’s 1/10th ROAR Nationals was a huge success for the Pro-Line Team and the X2 Compound. A quick walk through the pits and it was clear the X2 compound was the tire of choice for many.
In 4wd Modified, Ty Tessmann would TQ and take the overall win in A1 and A2, giving him the overall championship.
Modified Truck would see Dakotah Phend as Top Qualifier however, Jared Tebo would take the win on Pro-Line’s X2 tires.
In 2wd Modified, Dakotah Phend with his Rear Motor car would win A1 and A2 to claim the National Title.
Pro-Line would like to thank the staff at Silver Dollar Raceway for hosting a great event. All of our team drivers who made the trip to support Pro-Line and of course our customers for another great Nationals. Back to Chico in 6 weeks for the World Championships!
