Tekin scares the competition at LCRC!

LCRC in Oakland Mills, Pennsylvania held their annual Halloween race. Racing was fast and enjoyed by all. The largest class of the weekend being Electric Buggy with 71 entries.

Tekin driver Joe Bornhorst would Tq both the 1/8 E Buggy class and 1/8 E Truggy class handily. Starting from his Tq position Joe would simply walk away from the competition leaving them in his wake. Joe’s Tekin powered Tekno cars were simply too much for the rest of the field.


Joe chose the Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and T8 Gen2 2000kv Motor.

Tekin wins Exeter Hobbies Fall Classic

Exeter Hobbies held their Exeter Hobbies Fall Classic which would bring over 90 entries.

Saturday Morning would bring an early start of 6am with controlled practice running till 8:30am. Tekin team drivers would be fighting each other for the overall Tq in 2wd Mod Buggy, 4wd Mod Buggy, and 2wd Mod SC Truck.  Ryan Dunford would take the overall Tq over teammate Derek Stephansen in the 4wd buggy class. Derek would return the favor taking the 2wd Mod Buggy overall Tq and 2wd Mod SC Tq as well.

The 4wd buggy A-main was up next.  At the start of the tone it would be a race through the option line with Dunford taking the outer lane and Stephansen through the ripples on the inside. Having gone through this line all day with no mistakes, Stephansen would bobble on the first lap sending him to tenth. This would remove all pressure from Duford who was on point with his Tekin powered TLR 22-4.  Running the RSX and Redline Gen2 5.5 motor, he pulled away from the field leading wire to wire for the 7 minutes never worrying about power.

2wd Mod SC was up with Tq Derek Stephansen taking a lap on the field at the final tone. Derek chose the Tekin RSX esc and Redline Gen2 in 7.5 Turn to dominate the field.  “My Tekin powered SCT had great power all main long!” Stephansen

Exeter Hobbies SCT podium

4wd SC had Ryan Dunford start from his Tq position in his Tekin RX8 Gen2 powered TLR SCTE 2.0 to victory from the TQ position using the Tekin pro4 4600 motor.  Tekin teammate Doug “Casper” Nielsen would join Dunford on the podium in the 2nd position running the same system.

Come mains time Stephansen would be start from the pole in 2wd Mod A-Main. Stephansen would get a great start and begin to stretch his lead over 2nd until a CVD would ultimately fail while leading. This would give Dunford the lead. On lap 2 coming onto the sweeper Dunfords car flipped over and he would fall to last. For the rest of the 7 minutes, he pushed hard and would pass for 2nd place on the last lap.

Timberlake takes win RD1 SMCC Winter Series

Team Tekin Driver Paul Timberlake using the Tekin RSX and Gen 2 6.5 Motor took the win in the A main – Round One of SMCC Winter Series.

A damp track greeted the driver’s early Sunday morning qualifying, knowing this most drivers opted for the softer Silver compound tyre. Round’s one, two and three would be shared between Kevin Lee and Paul Timberlake meaning the final rd, (using the rd by rd format) would be a straight fight between the two drivers, and the big question was, was it dry enough for dry tyres. Yes was the answer. A scrappy fourth rd, enable Kevin to take the overall Top spot on the grid. A close second was Paul Timberlake, and 3rd was Nigel Buck.

A Main Final: An early mistake by Kevin allowed Paul to take the top spot, and he didn’t look back from there. As hard as Kevin chased, he didn’t have the ultimate pace to catch Paul, although a couple of late bobbles allowed Kevin to close the gap, but Paul held his nerve and took the Win.



“As always my Tekin equipment worked faultlessly. The only change I made during the day, was to wind down the boost just until the track dried. Then once the track dried later in the day, I reverted back to my std settings.” Paul Timberlake

Bornhorst takes Rd1 of the WRL series!

Tekin factory driver Joe Bornhorst attended Rd1 of the Winter Racing League series held at CRCRC, Ohio RC Factory, and Sparks Park respectively.  Joe entered the Pro4 SC class and 1/8 E buggy divisions.

“On Friday afternoon, I arrived at the track and began to get ready for some practice runs. Both of my Tekin powered Tekno vehicles were on point from the first lap on the track, which made the night pretty easy on me. Since no changes were needed for my cars, I spent my time breaking in my AKA Clay Typos, and continued to learn the track. It was a pretty basic practice night.

On Saturday morning, I arrived at the track bright and early and prepared for the day. I ran each of my cars twice, which served as a nice warm up for the racing that soon followed. Throughout every round of rocket round qualifying, I was able to hold the TQ spot in both classes, with the 2nd round being the quickest runs for me in both classes. As the day went on, the track began to dry out but still no changes were needed for either of my cars.

20141011_235118-1 20141011_235049-1

Going into the mains, I felt quite confident that I could hold onto the top spot, but I knew that I would still have to have clean runs to bring home the wins. Luckily, I was able to do just that, and pulled away from the pack to take the wins in both main events!

I would like to thank all of my sponsors for the continued support, Tekin, Tekno RC, Magic Hobbies, AKA, MIP, Avid, SMC Batteries, PT RC Racing Oils, the Radio Impound Podcast, and Double Crossed Designs.

“I used my Tekin RSX esc in both vehicles to take the wins in the A mains. I ran gen 2 7.5 in the 2wd buggy and a 6.5 gen 2 in the 1/10 4wd. Let me say this in ending, without the smooth power that these great speed controls provide I couldn’t do these things without Tekin. Thank you guys once again for the great product.” Mark Moon

SOS Pro E-Buggy

In 1/8 E Buggy Tekins Shay Brand  was able to get the TQ in all 3 rounds of qualifying in Pro E-Buggy, which gave me the overall TQ with Tekin teammate Griffin Hanah not far behind. Brand had a great start to the 10 minute a-main, and was able to take advantage of his TQ position and never look back. Tekin teammate Griffin Hannah was able to get into the 2nd position, and stay there for the entire race solidifying the Tekin 1 and 2 finish for the finals. Shay Brand was also able to take the overall Series win in Pro E-Buggy!  “I was running the Tekin RX8 Gen2/T8 Gen2 1900kv combo in m Mugen MBX7-Eco buggy for the entire series. It was always consistent and offered smooth and controllable power. Huge thanks to all my family and all my sponsors for making this possible for me!”
