2004 Missouri Offroad State Champs...

Hey just wanted to let all you guys know that Surge/EA/UGX was represented well this week in Missouri...

I entered 3 classes (Stock/Mod Truck, Stock Buggy) and made all 3 A's.

Stock Truck - TQ, 1st Place Overall A-Main
Mod Truck - Q'd 3rd, 4th Overall A-Main
Stock Buggy - Q'd 7th, 8th Overall A-Main

My buggy body also got 3rd in Concourse if that counts for anything...

So to make a long story short, ///SURGE Worldwide was brought home a State Title this weekend...

L8, TK

Seems Surge website isn't working, so I'll post the results here.

Went to the Half Fast Gas Blast at The Barn in Chester NY yesterday. I did a few setups in practice & my truck felt awesome. Very different track from what they normally have, including having a giant crossover, a tall elevation change, & a rhythm section on the back straightaway. Pretty hard to find a setup in those conditions.

First round, I got hacked around by some guys which cost me about 7 seconds. Nonetheless, I still won w\ a 10\5:30. I was also TQ for that round. In the second round, I improved, but I was a little slower than the previous round. 10\5:26 was my time.

Unfortunately, luck was not on my side for the 20 minute A-main. At the start, 2nd place took me out on the giant crossover, instantly dropping me from 1st to 8th. I had to make up time, which I did. 3 laps later I moved up to 3rd & was only 3 seconds behind the lead. I passed 2nd, then got bumped in the pipe by 2nd. Then I passed him again, & pulled away. Crashed again on the straightaway rhythms, didn't get passed but the leader pulled out to a 10 second lead. I figured this was a good time to pit, so I did. From then until the 2nd pitstop, I was truly racing, didn't crash once in that time. I was pulling off some really good laps, 30.9s, 31.0s, 31.1s, & was catching the lead easily. Then I crashed a few times after the 2nd pitstop about 16 or 17 minutes into the main, & fell back again. In the end, Anthony Mazzara(Losi\Trinity)won. I was 2nd, only a few seconds infront of him from being lapped. I later figured my engine was too rich from the cool temperatures, which also slowed me down which made most of my crashes. Sorry Surge, my bad .

Thanks guys, in both of my touring mains, i was the fastest car, but i had some problems, i was able to make up time on the leaders but it was not enough.

In 12th scale it was an awesome race, but a clip of the board was to much time for me to make up again to catch Mark.

Congrats Mike and Tyler


Good news guys, I read today the new layout for the Regionals at DC is down and ready for this weekend with a chance there might be a wed practice this wed night. That should be great for the guys that havent been there to get some serious track time.
