Had a good time this weekend at the Golden State Arena Cross at Delta RC. Ended up taking the overall TQ and wins in 4wd Mod Buggy, 1/8 E-Buggy and 4wd SCT! The event also had a Dash for Cash but I didn’t end up winning that, it was fun anyways though. Overall a fun time just hanging out with some old friends that I haven’t seen in a while.
Thank you to all my sponsors for the continued support!
1:10 4WD Truck is a class that looks to be gaining some momentum in a few areas and Matt Dortmund showed the field how it’s done the last weekend at Round 4 of the Northwest Championship Tour in Pasco, WA. The track at Tri-Cities RC Raceway is a tenth scale racer’s dream with its smooth surface, good traction and fast, flowing layouts. There is usually very little room for error in Pasco and every single lap on the clay-type surface demands precision driving and calm nerves. Tekin Driver Matt Dortmund took both the TQ and the win on mains day with his full Tekin-powered 1:10 Truggy.

Round 4 of the Northwest Championship Tour took place in Pasco, WA this last weekend at the Tri-Cities RC Raceway. Entries peaked at over 300 and the field was stacked with top drivers from all over the Northwest. Tekin Driver Tayler Wonders left it all out on the track with both of his Tekno 1:8 scale buggies and dominated the field in qualifying, securing TQ and ultimately took the win in both coveted classes!

This buggy has been a fantastic build start to finish! Tekno cars are built really well and everything fit together perfectly. This episode covers installing an RSX Pro 1/10 Brushless ESC, our new GEN4 6.5T Modified Brushless Motor and a T-190 Steering Servo.Continue reading

The 20th Episode of Tekin Builds brings us a Tekno RC EB410.2 build! Join in on building a buggy in 22 minutes (ha, if only) and have it ready for our RSX Pro, 6.5T GEN4 and T-190 installs. I’m pretty excited to drive a Tekno and the EB410.2 is a stout little buggy. Durability shouldn’t be an issue and I can tell this car is going to eat rough dirt tracks for breakfast judging by the thickness of the suspension arms, the 13mm big bore shocks and the 3 fluid filled diffs. It’s like a shrunk down 1:8 scale buggy platform! The build went extremely smooth and I can tell working on this car is going to be very straightforward with all the easy access to the diffs. Tuning options galore, we should be able to dial this buggy in for any surface.Continue reading
Winter sure does put a damper on the outdoor RC fun for us here in Idaho, but sometimes it just takes a trip to lower elevation to get out of the snow! Finally got to put some trail time on the UMG10 build and I gotta say, this is a great rig and has become my favorite Axial vehicle to date. I love the body, the tires are perfect style and size and all the upgrades brought it together.
