The VS4-10 is a driver! Ty finishes up the paint work, body and interior assembly, puts the wheels and tires together and installs the simple LED kit. Now that the truck is ready to hit the trails, it’s time to take it out and put some miles on it!
Having solid qualifying sitting qualified 2nd in 17.5 Expert Stock Buggy
8th in 2wd Modified Buggy Joe would have stellar race results in hos own words:
“Race results. A1 and A2 win to secure 17.5 overall win (none too soon Ezra TQ was insane fast in A3) A1 8th A2 6th A3 2nd to secure 4th overall in 2wd Mod and I think I squeaked out hot lap of the weekend for 2wd mod in A3 finally felt like my car was good in the last main, but 8th is a long way back to have done any better from there I don’t think.
Thanks to my fantastic sponsors: Focus RC, Xray, RC America, Tekin, and Focus Lidz.”
Part Three of the Vanquish VS4-10 Origin build covers installing and soldering the RX4 Speed Control as well as a few Quickstart tips like setting the proper Voltage Cutoff, setting the Motor Type and Calibrating the ESC to the radio. Ty also goes over centering the T-360 servo and setting the endpoints.
Joe Bornhorst had a hard fought battle during the entire weekend. His
Tekin Rx8 Gen3 ESC and T8 1900kv Gen3 powered Tekno EB48 buggy would put him into the lead early in the A-main but the track would reach out and touch nearly every driver on at some point. Joe was able to bring it home for a solid 2nd place overall.
Arguably the best ESC for stock or spec class racing had a dominating performance at the 2019 Snowbird Nationals in not only team driver’s cars but drivers who chose the ESC knowing it’s an advantage.

Wild West Raceway hosted the opening round of the 2019 GRRS this past weekend. The event had 215 entries. Adam Drake was the top qualifier in nitro buggy, nitro truck, and electric buggy. Drake went on to sweep all three A-mains!
“Last weekend we traveled to Hazard Kentucky for the Kentucky Stat Race at Dixon’s RC Raceway where I ran in both the Pro-Ebuggy and E-truggy classes. They ran 3 qualifying rounds and one main. After the first round of qualifying I was TQ in both classes, but I was beat in the 2nd and 3rd rounds and ended up qualifying 2nd overall in both. In the E-buggy A-main I had a really good battle with the guy who got TQ and he left an opening on about the 5th lap and I took it. I was able to keep the lead for the rest of the race and finished 1st. In the E-truggy A-main I was able to stay close to 1st place but was never able to get past him and ended up 2nd overall.
It was our first time at Dixon’s and we had a really good time It’s a really fun track and we met a lot of good people there.” Joey Bourdon
This past weekend at the Region 9 Regional Championships for 1/10th scale dirt off-road I was able to take 2 wins with Tekin products. I raced mod buggy and after qualifying 2nd I was able to take the win with my B6.1 equipped with a Tekin RSX and Gen3 7.5. I also ran 13.5 wheeler as there was not a mod wheeler class. I was able to take the TQ and win with my EB410 powered by the Tekin RS Pro BE and SpecR 13.5.
