Dominykas Eicinas wins the 2019 Lithuanian Off-road Championship!

On 27th of April I participated in the first round of the 2019 Lithuanian off-road championship. The event took place in Kaunas. Dominykas recaps:

“Q1: During practice I thought I had a good setup, just needed to get the car to be smoother through the rough sections. Pace was good, but a couple of mistakes gave me 4th place. Almost all the guys were really quick (or maybe I wasn’t fully out of the winter break 🙂 ).
Q2: Change of tires and lower ride height gave me the stability I needed. 1st place, but only 0,85 from 2nd place. Top 4 were 4 seconds apart.
Q3: Steady pace with no mistakes gave me 1st place and a 10 second gap to 2nd place.

R1: Took TQ in qualifying. In 2nd place was TLR’s driver Domantas Cesiulis who was really quick but had a tendency to make mistakes. Had a great start, tried not to make mistakes. Domantas saw a gap and overtook me. But after a while he had a contact with a backmarker. After that 3 drivers battled for 2nd place which allowed me to pull away. But once a said to myself ,,just don’t make mistakes’ my pace dropped a bit. Took 1st place with 4 seconds to 2nd place.

R2: On the practice lap before the race my car switched off unexpectedly. Somehow my dad and my friend got the car going again. This final was a bit easier, but in the beginning I needed to defend from Domantas a lot. But in happened again that he pushed his car too much and made mistakes which allowed me to take 1st place!!!

After the A2 final I had secured a 1st place finish, which allowed me to skip the A3 final, as it wasn’t necessary. Overall, I’m really happy with a great start to my 2019 season. A  TQ and Win is a great result!”

Dominykas chose the award winning Tekin Rx8 Gen3 ESC, T8 Gen3 motor to power him to this win.

Having solid qualifying sitting qualified 2nd in 17.5 Expert Stock Buggy
8th in 2wd Modified Buggy Joe would have stellar race results in hos own words:

“Race results. A1 and A2 win to secure 17.5 overall win (none too soon Ezra TQ was insane fast in A3) A1 8th A2 6th A3 2nd to secure 4th overall in 2wd Mod and I think I squeaked out hot lap of the weekend for 2wd mod in A3 finally felt like my car was good in the last main, but 8th is a long way back to have done any better from there I don’t think.

Joey Bourdon Wins The Kentucky State Race!

“Last weekend we traveled to Hazard Kentucky for the Kentucky Stat Race at Dixon’s RC Raceway where I ran in both the Pro-Ebuggy and E-truggy classes.  They ran 3 qualifying rounds and one main.  After the first round of qualifying I was TQ in both classes, but I was beat in the 2nd and 3rd rounds and ended up qualifying 2nd overall in both.  In the E-buggy A-main I had a really good battle with the guy who got TQ and he left an opening on about the 5th lap and I took it.  I was able to keep the lead for the rest of the race and finished 1st.  In the E-truggy A-main I was able to stay close to 1st place but was never able to get past him and ended up 2nd overall.
It was our first time at Dixon’s and we had a really good time  It’s a really fun track and we met a lot of good people there.” Joey Bourdon

Ebuggy:  Tekin RX8 Gen3 with Tekin Gen 2 T8 1900kV Etruggy:  Tekin RX8 Gen3 with Tekin Gen 2 T8 2000kv
