Shay Brand and Tekin take RD1 of the Southern Off-road Series!

Tekin powered Shay Brand attended Round 1 of the Southern Off-road Series. A new series starting up this year with the first round being held at Dalton RC Raceway. With a total of 137 entries, it looks as if it is going to be a great series with a bunch of fast competition.

In Pro E-Buggy, Shay Brand was able to get the TQ overall after winning each round of qualifying. In the main it was a close battle at the start but Shay was able to separate himself from the pack and come away with the win with around a 25 second lead over second place. My Tekin Rx8 Gen2 T8 Gen2 powered MBX7-Eco was on rails all weekend long, it was super consistent and very comfortable and easy to drive for me.

Tekin Dominates the 2014 Psycho Nitro Blast!

Known for being one of the hardest races to win due to the crazy 24 practice schedule, ever changing track conditions, and MEGA jumps along with a live or die wall ride the PNB has become one of the premier races to attend. Tekin drivers from all over the country to make a statement, let’s see how they did.

Tekin factory driver Ryan Lutz was top of the class in qualifying, pulling off the “hat trick” tq’ing all 3 Pro electric classes this year at the PNB. Taking each round of 1/8 Pro E Buggy with Tekin teammates Joe Bornhorst, Phil Atondo, Max Flurer, Adam Drake, Dylan Gerard, and JM McGinty all in tow.  Lutz would continue to dominate qualifying taking the overall Tq position for the mains followed by Joe Bornhost(p4), Phil Atondo(p5), Max Flurer(p6), Adam Drake(p7), Dylan Gerard(p9), JM McGinty(P12), Shay Brand(P13), and Chris Viesins(p14) giving Tekin factory drivers well over half of the A-main starting positions! All drivers were using the Tekin Rx8 Gen2 and T8 Gen2 line of motors for this event proving their consistency, durability and speed was unmatched.

1-8 E buggy final qualifyingDouble A-mains would prove exciting racing on the ever changing track. Huge divots, craters, hidden ruts would all play their part. Watching the video(courtesy of Neobuggy) you can watch cars jump out of sorts for what appears to be no reason at all!  Ryan would get out to a lead but the track would gobble up his car forcing an error allowing Carson Wernimont to take A-1, followed by Lutz, and Drake.

A-2 Lutz would lead from his Tq position but a bobble would have Wernimont collect them both. Lutz would battle back to the lead and take the win followed by Tekin teammates Max Flurer in 2nd, and Joe Bornhorst in 3rd.  The overall results would be dominated by Tekin equipment.

Ryan Lutz would again take Tq position with his Tekin powered Team Durango ride over Tekin teammates Max Flurer(p2), Martin Harrison(p8). Ryan would go onto take A-1 and A-2 for the overall win followed by Tekin teammates Barry Pettit in 2nd, and Max Flurer in 3rd for a full Tekin podium sweep!  All 3 drivers chose the Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and T8 Gen2 line of motors to power their respective rides to a podium spot!

Boots takes RD 1 of the BRCA 1/8 E-Nats!

The National campaign last weekend with glorious weather and a hard packed track with lots of grip for the first round of the BRCA Electric 1:8 National Championship. Elliott Boots was using his Tekin powered Kyosho MP9 TKI3 E with a very similar setup that he uses on his Nitro car which is always very good.

In qualifying Elliott was extremely fast. Due to a couple of bobbles here and there on a very demanding track and a couple of back marker problems, secured second place for the final. Elliot was using the new super fast Tekin RX8 Gen 2 Electronic Speed Controller and a 1900 kv Tekin T8 Gen2 motor which ran all weekend with super power and nice power delivery and was able to compete in a 12 minute final very easily with plenty of power in reserve.

Elliott was on second row of the grid for the main 12 minute A Final in which he made a fantastic start and was able to take the lead very quickly from Lee Martin. Elliott then put in some outstanding laps and was able to give himself a nice gap from second place and the rest of the pack. He was able to back off his pace a little to save using all his power up as it was a large track and we wanted to make sure we finished the race, which he was able to do comfortably and take his first BRCA Championship win of the year.

Next round is in Coventry in April.
