This past weekend was round number 2 of the JConcepts Supercup at Bashers Rc Raceway in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Basically a state race bringing in all the top level drivers from around the state.
Being a small indoor track, the layout had good flow to it and was fun to drive. A few tricky sections of the track had you drive conservatively while other sections you had to attack. A track with 14 second laps, if you had a few wrecks you could easily be down a lap.
Tekin pilot Brett Kingsbury reports:
“After getting used to the track on Friday, I set my cars up to drive easy in order to make consistent laps. My Tekin powered B44 and C4.2 had great power all weekend running 7.5 and 8.5 gen 2 motors with the RS Pro and RS speed controllers, respectively.
During Qualifying in 4wd, it was arch rival Daimon and I gunning for the top spot. After qualifying was over he earned the TQ with myself sitting in 2nd. In 2wd I qualified 5th overall.
For the mains, I gained the lead after a couple laps into the race until a wreck put me back to 2nd. I ended up on the podium finishing 2nd. In 2wd, during a pass for the 3rd position I ended up in the pipe. After a tough drive trying to make up positions I finished a hard fought 6th.
I would like to thank Tekin for the great equipment they support me with. I have had no issues with my equipment and the ESC I run in my B44 I have used since 2009.”
