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.
