Brand wins RD2 of the SOS Series!

This past weekend was Round 2 of the Southern Offroad Series, held at Dalton RC which had close to 150 entries for the race. Shay Brand was able to get the TQ in all 3 rounds of qualifying, making minor adjustments to the car each round as the groove came in and a slight dust developed over the track. Brand was able to take advantage of his TQ position and hold the 1st position for the entire main event, and come away with the win with a lap on the field.

Sanford takes Rd2 of Proline Champs Series

Heritage RC Park in Chula Vista, CA hosted Round 2 of the Pro-Line Championship Series. Like Round 1, Round 2 had 70+ entries, and we would run 7 minute qualifiers. The track was watered every other heat.

The competition for this round would include J.D. Mora of LRP, TLR’s Don Vinkemulder, Mugen drivers Robert Wickham, Jaime Boquiren and Felipe Martinez, Darin Rogers of Tekno RC and some very fast local racers.

1/8 Scale E Buggy

Luca Sanford recaps: “For both qualifiers of E Buggy, I opted for a fresh set of Soft AKA GridIron IIs, and it was a good choice. The car was very planted, and easy to drive. In Q1, I had a perfect run, and would get the first round TQ. In Q2, Mora pressed me hard for the first 5 minutes of the 7 minute qualifier, but I ran mistake free. I just missed my first round TQ, but would start first in the 10 minute A Main.

I got a great start in the Main, and pulled out to an early lead over the field. My Kyosho MP9e TKI, with the Tekin RX8 Gen2 and Redline T8 Gen2 1900 motor was fantastic. The AKA GridIron II tires on DE Racing SpeedLine Plus wheels were amazing. I ran the entire 10 minute Main mistake free, and finished on top of the podium.”

Simon Moss reports from the Podium on the BRCA Nats Rd2

110 drivers made the trip to Kidderminster for the second round of the 2015 2wd BRCA Off Road National Series. Drivers were greeted with a slightly damp track.

Simon Moss reports: “Throughout changing conditions, my Tekin RSX and Redline Gen2 system worked flawlessly, delivering smooth power in the slippery conditions and great torque later on a drying track. After qualifying 5th, I finished with a 2nd and 3rd in legs 2 & 3 which gave me 3rd place overall behind Neil Cragg and Lee Martin.”

Tekin reports from PNB 2015

The Psycho Nitro Blast one of the premier races out in the Southeast region of the US was once again, an event not to be missed. Racers from all over the country converged to Unadilla, Georgia, about 2 hours south of Atlanta to race some of the fastest drivers in the world. As always the 24 hour practice schedule, unique atmosphere and every changing track conditions provided for a “have to make this race” event for all who attended.

Early on Ryan Lutz and Joe Bornhorst were learning the track with their Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and T8 Gen2 powered Tekno ET48 E truggies and apparently having a great time doing so. Synchronized back flips were caught on film for all to enjoy:

 

Both drivers “feeling” the track and ready to take it to the mains and fight it out for the win. Lutz would take A1 from his Tq position and just clicked off the laps taking the win. Joe would take P2 followed by the rest of the field. A2 would prove dicier as Lutz would bobble falling back into the field giving JB the lead. Minutes into A2 Lutz would battle back to the front in time for JB to make his own mistake relinquishing the lead to Lutz who would go onto take the win and overall title. Tekin would dominate the power demanding E Truggy class sweeping the entire 5 position podium. All 5 drivers would use the Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and T8 Gen2 line of motors.

Factory Driver Martin Harrison would take the overall Tq in the 4wd SC division. In both A-mains Harrison would check out and never look back taking the overall win. Martin chose the Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and Pro4 4300HD motor in his TLR SCTE 2.0 truck.

1/8 Pro E Buggy was filled with the top pro names you’d expect; Lutz, Drake, McGinty, Flurer, Bornhorst, and more.  Bornhorst and Lutz were in the hunt for the overall but would make a few small mistakes Tebo just didn’t make. Tekin would take 3 of the top 5 positions with Bornhorst in 2nd overall, Lutz in 3rd, and Max Flurer in 4th. All 3 drivers chose the Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and T8 Gen2 line of motors to power them to a podium position.
