Exeter Hobbies held their Exeter Hobbies Fall Classic which would bring over 90 entries.
Saturday Morning would bring an early start of 6am with controlled practice running till 8:30am. Tekin team drivers would be fighting each other for the overall Tq in 2wd Mod Buggy, 4wd Mod Buggy, and 2wd Mod SC Truck. Ryan Dunford would take the overall Tq over teammate Derek Stephansen in the 4wd buggy class. Derek would return the favor taking the 2wd Mod Buggy overall Tq and 2wd Mod SC Tq as well.
The 4wd buggy A-main was up next. At the start of the tone it would be a race through the option line with Dunford taking the outer lane and Stephansen through the ripples on the inside. Having gone through this line all day with no mistakes, Stephansen would bobble on the first lap sending him to tenth. This would remove all pressure from Duford who was on point with his Tekin powered TLR 22-4. Running the RSX and Redline Gen2 5.5 motor, he pulled away from the field leading wire to wire for the 7 minutes never worrying about power.
2wd Mod SC was up with Tq Derek Stephansen taking a lap on the field at the final tone. Derek chose the Tekin RSX esc and Redline Gen2 in 7.5 Turn to dominate the field. “My Tekin powered SCT had great power all main long!” Stephansen
4wd SC had Ryan Dunford start from his Tq position in his Tekin RX8 Gen2 powered TLR SCTE 2.0 to victory from the TQ position using the Tekin pro4 4600 motor. Tekin teammate Doug “Casper” Nielsen would join Dunford on the podium in the 2nd position running the same system.
Come mains time Stephansen would be start from the pole in 2wd Mod A-Main. Stephansen would get a great start and begin to stretch his lead over 2nd until a CVD would ultimately fail while leading. This would give Dunford the lead. On lap 2 coming onto the sweeper Dunfords car flipped over and he would fall to last. For the rest of the 7 minutes, he pushed hard and would pass for 2nd place on the last lap.
