Wild West Raceway hosted the opening round of the 2019 GRRS this past weekend. The event had 215 entries. Adam Drake was the top qualifier in nitro buggy, nitro truck, and electric buggy. Drake went on to sweep all three A-mains!
“Last weekend we traveled to Hazard Kentucky for the Kentucky Stat Race at Dixon’s RC Raceway where I ran in both the Pro-Ebuggy and E-truggy classes. They ran 3 qualifying rounds and one main. After the first round of qualifying I was TQ in both classes, but I was beat in the 2nd and 3rd rounds and ended up qualifying 2nd overall in both. In the E-buggy A-main I had a really good battle with the guy who got TQ and he left an opening on about the 5th lap and I took it. I was able to keep the lead for the rest of the race and finished 1st. In the E-truggy A-main I was able to stay close to 1st place but was never able to get past him and ended up 2nd overall.
It was our first time at Dixon’s and we had a really good time It’s a really fun track and we met a lot of good people there.” Joey Bourdon
This past weekend at the Region 9 Regional Championships for 1/10th scale dirt off-road I was able to take 2 wins with Tekin products. I raced mod buggy and after qualifying 2nd I was able to take the win with my B6.1 equipped with a Tekin RSX and Gen3 7.5. I also ran 13.5 wheeler as there was not a mod wheeler class. I was able to take the TQ and win with my EB410 powered by the Tekin RS Pro BE and SpecR 13.5.
“Last race of the season was held at Club Cartt (www.clubcartt.com) with more than 90 drivers, the weather was really cold to welcome this event.
Our Tekin Rx8 Gen 3 T8 2050 powered Sworkz offered a great performance all the event to be TQ’d and also winning all main finals to achieve the Victory! ” Alberto Garcia
The JBRL Nitro Series just completed its 15th season. With an average of nearly 175 entries per event, it is easy to understand why the JBRL Nitro Series is the most popular racing series in the nation. The JBRL series visited 7 tracks this year throughout California to test the skills of its competitors over a wide range of track conditions. This exciting series is fun for the novice and expert racer alike.
Adam Drake was the big winner taking home three championships in Expert Electric Buggy, Expert Nitro Buggy, and Expert Nitro Truck.

“Traveled to Shreveport Louisiana this past weekend to take part in the 2018 Cajun Classic. Turnout was pretty light but the racing was solid. Four rounds of qualifying as well as triple a-main events. I was feeling pretty confident going into qualifying so my lofty goal was to win every race I was in all weekend. My Tekin ESC’s and Spec R powered rides helped me do that! I ran my 13.5 Tekno wheeler from nationals in Mod 4wd as well as my B6.1D in Mod 2wd. I was able to take 8 qualifying round wins and win the first 4 mains to take the overall in both classes. I was also able to take the win in the $500 4wd Mod dash for cash. Big thank you to you guys for everything.” Tyler Hooks
“The competition was on 27-28.10. The track was technical with popular ETS black carpet. It was located in Poznań on the big hall with a lot of audience during Hobby Trade. I started in Stock 17.5T and 6.5T 1/12. Both powered by Tekin motor. In Stock was fully equipped with Tekin Motor, Tekin RS Gen2 and Tekin servo. In 1/12 it was my first competition with a new motor 6.5T Tekin Gen3 Spec R. I won with TQ in both these classes all the qualifiers, all the finals. In 1/12 made with a few laps advantage to others. Both models were very well prepared on the practices with setup and setup electronic.” Arkadiusz Smyk
We manufacture electronics, that is true. We are also RC fanatics that enjoy building vehicles of all types. Last year we acquired a 3D printer and shortly after decided to put our skills to the test and build a 3D printed 1:10 6×6 military cargo truck. A few months and a couple spools of filament later, we had created something completely from scratch and spare Axial parts.
The 2018 Southern Nationals was held this past weekend in West Monroe, Louisiana. Many Tekin factory and regional drivers were in attendance dominating the competition.
In Pro Ebuggy, Ryan Lutz would take the TQ spot.
