4wd:
I set tq in round 1 with a great run. I reset tq in round 2 with an even faster run
The speedzone 7.5 and saddle pack has been so consistant with power i really love this combo!!

Started from the 1 spot in the main and ended up snaping a shock mount screw with about 2mins left i finished 2nd. And im sitting 1st over all in points right now for the series.

St:
Had a great first round and set tq. In round 2 i was on pace to reset tq but ran into lap traffic and dropped off.

Amain. From the start i led the race from green to checkered. I also didnt know the car had a broken front shock tower but i was able to run it but i was affriad to push the car. Im sitting 2nd overall in points right now

Saturday race report 7/12/14.

I ran 4wd mod buggy and Stadium truck again.

4wd: after having very rough qualifiers. [Breaking 2 cvds] one in each round i started dead last in the main from the 7th spot.

After a great start i found myself in 3rd place after just a few corners.. with some rough luck and lap trafic and a tangle with another car i was able to get out to 2nd place and had to do work on the 14second ahead leader. I railed it down to 6seconds but ran out of time and a late mistake ment i finished 2nd.



Stadium truck: again having rough qualifieres. I was running the 4600 shorty in the truck it was feeling great but after a couole minuets race directer called a restart and combine that with my practice laps my truck hit lvc in round one with about a 1min left on the clock.. round 2 was off to a tq pace only to have a bullet fail and my car turn off.. so i started from last in the amain 6th place.

Amain. I put my head down and found myself in the lead just a few laps in. A simple mistake would cost me the lead just a lap later but i pressured the leader and he finally made the mistake i regained the lead and never looked back. Finished 1st from last place. The speedzone 8.5 and 6300mah pack where on point in te main and very consistant.

Here is a pic of my pit space and cars from saturday.

Race report: 7/26/14

Round 5.
I ran 4wd mod buggy, 2wd mod buggy, and stadium truck.

4wd buggy:
1st qual i blew apart another cvd. Haha im not sure why maybe the speedzone 7.5 boosted is just to much lol. 2nd qual wheel nut backed off and the drive pin fell out, so i was starting last in the main.

4wd amain:
Was a light turnout and only 3 cars in the main, i got a good start and on lap 2 1st and second place tangled and i had the lead. It was short lived as a few laps later i landed on a pipe and flipped my car. Lost the lead and finished 2nd again. Lol.

2wd mod:
1st qual was ok track was loose and dry and hard to get traction. 2nd qual was wet and hooked up and i had a good qual starting 5th in the amain.

2wd amain:
Got a good start amd a few laps in i was up to 2nd place, was short lived when i crashed and fell back to last. I worked my way back up to 4th and finished.

Stadium truck:
1st qual was good and 2nd qual was ok i would be starting 2nd in the main. For some reason i just cant get that tq. Lol.

St amain:
Got a great start and the leader crashed on the first lap and i checked out never looked back and won.
3 wins in a row with stadium truck.

My speedzone packs and motors are very consistent and have lots of power. Couldnt be happier.

Not an ESC. Sorry. Too many logistics for now. But might be one down the road.
