Mod 1/12th was a little light for turnout but still was some incredible talent pools with national ranked drivers. Took a early lead in the mod 1/12th and never looked back . Great ending to another Championship season for myself and Tekin.” words by Andrew Mowery

“I attended the 2011 RC Pro US Series Round 2 at Indy RC this past weekend and after coming from my wins from the Icebreaker and 2011 RC Pro Texas State Series Round 1.
Qualifying in electric was what I was hoping for by setting TQ in rounds 2,3, and 4. I also set the fastest overall round even over nitro buggy with an 11 5:13. As for nitro it was nothing but troubles here and there and was going to start off in 6th.
TQ&1st - David Joor

“My 1900kv motor and Tekin System was super reliable at the Psycho Nitro Blast in Unadilla Georgia. The track was hard on equipment, rough, and with lap times in the 55 second range it was great to have good equipment! I was able to finish 3 overall in A1 and 4th in A2. for a event finish of 4th overall. Tekin is truly the best, easy to work with, and with great customer service I would recommend anyone to choose the Tekin product line!” Alan Burton

“The 2011 JBRL was off to a great start at Hotrod Hobbies in Valencia,Ca. With around 280 entries it was one heck of a long day for all the racers. After my last years performance in the SuperStock classes I decided to run Mod this year, hoping to gain experience with running with some of the pro guys such as Mike Truhe, Frank Root ,Hupo Hongio, Jurn Numann, along with many other rising talent. In my Mod 4wd I was sitting 3rd after both qualifiers only to line up behind both of Team Durangos factory guys sent here from different countries to start practicing for next weeks Cactus Classic. In 2wd I put in my best run in the first qually to which put me just under a second off TQ, sitting behind Frank Root and in front of Mike Truhe, both from the TLR camp. But after a quick pace in the second round from both of the Durango guys I was bumped back down to 5th on the starting grid.
After waiting all day to race around 8:30 my first main which was mod 4wd was up and I was more than ready to grap the wheel. Turn one was fairly clean and everyone got out only a spot or two from where they started. I came by the line on lap one in 2nd spot and was looking good for half the race and then piped it which moved me back to 4th. After a long fought battle with Hupo I ended up 3rd behind both of the Durango guys once again. A good hour or so later was the 2wd main event and I wanted a taste of the podium once again, but after getting caught in the first corner pile up my chances were not looking to good as I was running 7th or so. A few laps in I got in my rythem and moved into 4th where I would end up finishing! I would like to thank Tekin products for getting me the power I needed to finish strong with my RS Pros and 7.5/8.5 motors!” Zack Rogers
“I traveled up to REO Raceway in Indiana over the weekend for the Indiana Championships race. This would be the first outing for the Tekin Powered Losi 8E 2.0. With about 125 entries, I knew the buggy would have to be good, and from the first lap, it felt great. Power was very smooth and predictable running the RX8 and 1700 combo. I TQ’d Rd 1, but in the second and third round got bumped back to second place by about a second. At the horn of the A Main, I latched on the the bumper of the TQ Driver, on lap 5 I made my move tothe lead and continued to pull away from the field. At the Final tone, I had put a lap on the entire field and finished on a lap by myself taking the Indiana Championship with a commanding performance. Thanks to Team Tekin, Team Losi, J Concepts Tires, and SMC Batteries!” David Wall, Tekin Privateer
