We manufacture electronics, that is true. We are also RC fanatics that enjoy building vehicles of all types. Last year we acquired a 3D printer and shortly after decided to put our skills to the test and build a 3D printed 1:10 6×6 military cargo truck. A few months and a couple spools of filament later, we had created something completely from scratch and spare Axial parts.
Jim had this to say; “I’m super excited to be apart of the Tekin team. I’ve been using their products the entire time and I look forward to helping make them better any way I can.”
Tekin would like to welcome England’s on-road ace Jimmy Maddison to the team. Jimmy brings years of experience and top results to the team.
Jimmy had this to say; ” I picked up a few of the latest Gen3 Redline motors for a race and was blown away by their performance right out of the box. I got great support from team manager Randy Pike even not being on the team. With his help I had great success right away and knew Tekin would be a great fit for me. I look forward to working alongside Randy and helping others around me go fast with Tekin.”
Jimmy will be attending the 2016 IIC in Las Vegas as well as local events around his region. Look for some of his setup sheets to appear here: http://www.teamtekin.com/hotwire/escsetups/rsx-setup-sheets.html
Tekin is happy to announce the signing and partnership with European driving ace Hupo Hönigl. Hupo and Tekin have already experienced success in the 1/8 Electric market winning the Austrian National Championships!
Hupo had this to say “I´m really happy to join Team Tekin after already using the Rx8 and T8 for a full season in my 1/8th electric car with amazing
feeling and absolutely flawless. Also it is a bit like a revival for me, because in the beginning of my career (22 years ago) I used Tekin speedos and they were great and I have good memories only.
I´m really looking forward to a successful year with my new power unit.“
What are we up to? Stay tuned to find out!
Ben Skewes was the winner chosen out of hundreds of #TekinIIC contest applicants. The Tekin Hashtag contest held alongside the 2014 International Indoor Champs put up a Tekin RSX system of the winners choice. To enter all you had to do was photobomb Tekin and post to your social media account using the #TekinIIC to enter. Chosen at random Ben was contacted via Instagram and had this to say “Thanks Tekin, I’m truly grateful!” he continued to say “I have recently installed the system in my SC truck and am really happy with it.”
Ben we’re glad you’re happy with your new gear! We’d like to congratulate Ben and Amy Skewes. Ben just let us know: “On a side note last club day was the hottest on record @ 43 Celsius. The Tekin electronics in my 2wd Sc performed flawlessly. I TQD and won the day outright. Will be sticking with Tekin for a long time to come!”
Tekin would like to welcome Chris Wheeler to the team! Chris is a very accomplished TLR factory driver out of Arizona. Chris’s recent accomplishments include taking 3rd in the 2wd Mod SCT division at the 2014 Cactus Classic.
The winter months are over and that means the end of the indoor offroad season for many midwest racers, as they prepare to go outdoors. Finishing off the indoor offroad season is the annual “Spring Classic” event hosted by 80/35 Raceway in Grimes, Iowa.
This year’s event attracted 160+ entries consisting of racers from all across the midwest including Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Missouri, and more!
Team Tekin driver Mike Garrison made the trip for the “2014 Spring Classic” to race in the 4wd Modified SCT class. The technical track layout made for some very close racing in all classes. Garrison would capture the overall TQ spot in Saturday’s qualifying, leading up to Sunday’s triple A-Mains.
As the tone sounded for A1 on Sunday morning, the field stayed close several minutes into the race. Eventually the Tekin Rx8 Pro4 powered TLR SCTE 2.0 of Garrison began to stretch out on the field, crossing the line for the win. A2 would be a mirror image of A1, as once again the field was tight. Garrison would once again take the win start to finish, crowning him the 2014 Spring Classic 4wd SCT Champion!
