Tekin takes Round 2 win at the RC Pro Series Delta division!

Round 2 of the RC Pro Series Delta division was held in Shreveport, LA. at TNT Raceway.  Over 100 entries allowed the track to start out pretty smooth with a little dust.  A few computer issues forced event organizers to set up the mains based on qualifying after the re-sort.  This worked to Tekin powered Reggie Tongue’s favor in E-buggy where he would be TQ.

  The computer issues also caused the main times to be lowered. The electric triple A’s were now 5min double A’s.  Reggie had two hard fought battles with Ty Rogers as they swapped leads all the way down to the last lap in both A’s.  In the end Tongue ended up being a little more consistent and won both mains, giving him the overall win in E-Buggy using the Tekin Rx8 and T8 Redline motor programmed with a Hotwire USB.
