He is a class act and should hold his head up cause the way he raced all weekend was amazing. Happy birthday Heinrich
I saw the punt. But Heinrich came back and he had a chances to win.. but the one mistake cost him at the end...btw his TC is dialed

Great job by Henrik and Jovan to put cars in the A Main. Henrik really showed them how well the R10 handles - even coming back like it did.

Hopefully more people see how competitive this car can be on asphalt and carpet.

Hope everybody knows you can also get kits and parts from TQ as well - check out their website.

2014 Reedy Race of Champions was a blast. I was unable to attend the Thursday practice due to work. I knew I had work coming for me on Friday knowing the fact that record times at Tamiya America were being broken in the 13.5 division. Friday morning was controlled practice and the traction was like no other i've felt. Traction was so high, I was amazed the amount of cars traction rolling with just a quick flick of the wheel. During practice I knew I had to set up the car for consistency. I was able to watch Henrik Heitsch ripping through the track setting blistering fast lap times. I had honor of meeting him after and asking him if he could give me a few set up tips. In fact, he was so nice that he would come up to me in the pits once in a while and taking peeks at my car to make sure everything was ok. After doing the last few controlled practices, It was finally time to our first qualifier. Henrik managed to take TQ and I was able to get 6th overall out of some 80 drivers. After making a huge mistake on our last qualifying round, I luckily was able to secure the 10th spot in the A-main while Henrik easily took TQ. I tried my best to make the best of my mains but only was able remain 10th overall. I am very happy with the R10 and as you can see the car is very capable to compete with the other popular brands. I would like to thank Nick and Viper R/C solutions for their support and the rest of the ARC team for their help. Lets do it again next year! Aloha.

Just goes to show that the ARC car can do great in the hands of mediocre driver like me to a pro like Henrik. Last reedy Arc placed third in 17.5 class. Looking forward to another great year with driving an ARC. It keeps getting better and better. Also looking forward to those cool looking Blitz bodies to try.

Here you go John, http://www.shopviperrc.com/Default.asp

Don't hold it against the rest of us ARC drivers just because Josh drives one... LOL.

It is a great car and I've had mine working well at Speedworld and ripon. Wish I could of made the Reedy but a nitro race got in the way...


Ohhh, and good to see your back racing..

Thanks Scotty! It looks really good. That Henriik guy is a wheel.

I like giving Josh a hard time. It's my 4th or 5th hobby.

I had to chance to meet Henrik last Feb at TITC. He is very focused yet able to share setup tips. He is a fine example of a pro driver....

John, they got the link posted - anything we can do to help grow the brand. Hope everyone is pointing out to their local hobby shops how well the car did.

Unlike some other smaller brands - parts are always in stock, ready to ship, at great prices.

BTW - anyone notice the MAP price has dropped? Check our site and friends like TQ R/C Racing.....
