The SWorkz Challenge was hosted at the Silver Dollar Speedway, previous home of the 2013 Ifmar worlds! Track guru Kevin Jelich put in yet another epic layout. This one was riddled with off camber sections putting a premium on in air car handling skills. Lucky for Tekin we had a qualified group of “whip artists” ready to clean out the 1/8 E Buggy class.
Ryan Lutz would lead the way with his Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc T8i powered Dex408v2 buggy. Ryan recently switched to the T8i after stripping his cars weight down to 3250g, near minimum weight. “The power band was awesome. SUPER smooth and nothing compromised on the top end.” Lutz Tekin teammates Phil Atondo was nipping on his heels in A1 taking P2 followed by Tekin/TLR teammate Jacob Haas in 3rd. They would run A2 with the same overall results. Tekin would monopolize the podium. Lutz in P1, Atondo in P2, Haas in P3. Lutz chose the Tekin T8i while Atondo and Haas chose the Tekin T8 Gen2 1900kv, all 3 chose the award winning Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc.
