A great story from a young racer. We can’t say it any better so read his letter to us in his own words! Great job Mitchell!
My name is Mitchell Schaeffer and I have a great underdog story for you from my last race in the Jconcepts Super cup round 4 RC race at FZRC in Sarasota, FL. I ran 2wd Independent stock buggy and in my first qualifier I struggled with finding traction. For my second qualifier I struggled with my gear mesh which ended up striping my spur gear, also making me unable to run my second qualifier. Here come the mains. As I prepared, factory Tekin Dad Lance MacDonald helped me get my Tekin Gen 2 17.5 tuned. For the C main, I started second and ended up taking the win to bump me to the B main. In the B main I started ninth place and worked my way to the top for the win and bumped me up to the A main. Wow right! I couldn’t believe my luck after such a rough start to my day. The A main starts, I started in ninth place, I ran clean, watched out for the leaders, and waited for them to make a mistake. Suddenly there was my chance, they got tangled up and I used the punch Lance gave my buggy in the corners to put me past them, and took the win with my Tekin powered buggy. Wow what a day! Thanks to my dad and Lance Macdonald for the support!
Thanks for your time,
Congrats Mitchell from all of us at Tekin!
