The M-Chassis Enduro at the Tamiya Track went great and was some of most fun I’ve ever had RC racing. Our team of club racers was running a solid 6th out of 16 entries behind a bunch of TCS greats and the likes of Barry Baker! We were like the Bad News Bears. Our gearbox gave up at about hour 5 and the repair cost us a couple of positions taking nearly 45 minutes to repair.
The FX — it performed flawlessly for the entire time, and only occasionally showed 3 LEDs running on asphalt on a 100-degree day. We were one of the few teams that went the distance on just one motor and I’m know the FX was a big part of that allowing superior brushe/comm wear using the required Tamiya silver can motors.
Team Tekin driver Andy Castellini captures the Electric 8th Buggy “TQ “ & a Nitro Truggy “TQ”. He then backed up his TQ runs by winning both the Electric 8th Buggy and the Nitro Truggy “A” Mains. All the action was at Hobby Hut Raceway located in Audubon, Pa, as they hosted Round Five of the Roar Region 2 1/8th Pro-Series Races. The RC8e was powered by a TEKIN RX8 with a 2000KV Tekin Truggy motor. JConcepts Subcultures provided excellent traction on a track that was worn down from a half season on racing and some hard weather.
Great job Andy!
The Tekin RS was the speedo of choice at the ROAR Paved Nationals last weekend. Over 70% of the entire race group were using the Tekin RS line of esc’s.
Brian Shook would lock down the first ROAR title in Expert WGT using a Tekin RS. Brian had a flawless run in A3 to secure his ROAR title. Congratulations Brian!
Mark Burt travelled all the way from Florida to attend the ROAR Paved Nats. Mark was rewarded for his hard work with the highly competitive Expert TC 17.5 class Tq ing with his blazing fast laptimes. Mark would have stiff competition from Martin Crisp, Cory Harpke, James Arluck, and Ej Evans. Mark locked it down in A3 with a near faultless run securing the National Title! Congratulations
Both Brian’s and Mark’s ROAR Paved National winning setups will be posted on the Tekin website shortly.
Team drivers Nathan “The Machine” Lavery and team manager Randy Pike go 1-2 in the 8 minute A-main at the Jconcepts Summer Nationals held at Outback Raceway.
Both drivers dominated qualifying taking turns running some of the fastest laps in Mod Truck. Nathan was actually running a 13.5 Tekin Redline motor while taking the overall Tq! Randy was using a new 11.5T Redline motor.
Both drivers were using the RS esc in their trucks, programmed by a Tekin Hotwire running the latest 208 software.

Chris Sturdy dominated the Queensland Champs Tq’ing and winnng every 17.5 class! Great Job Chris!!!
Team Drivers Jeremy Potter and Randy Pike were in attendance to offer support, and race of course! Both Jeremy and Randy were running Electric 1/8 Buggy having solid qualifying and making the A-Main. Randy also entered in the hotly contested Electric Truggy taking the Tq and the overall win.
Jeremy Potter was armed with a Tekin Rx8 2050 in his Hotbodies Ve8. Randy was running an Rx8 1700 equipped Losi 2.0. In Truggy Randy was running the Rx8 and 2000kv T8 motor. Both were running Thunder Power 4s 40c packs.
Both were there to help with driver setups, gearing help and car setup. During all of the mains nearly 30+ Tekin Rx8 systems were running without a single hiccup or failure. The track was in great shape while the Alabama heat made for some great racing on the large indoor track. It was an overall success.
Special thanks to Alan Burton and the entire AMS crew for hosting a great event.
