Nexx 10sc win at JCP Raceway - 10/15/11 by DJ

Reported by Jubal Dike - JCP held its final 2011 outdoor race of the season on Saturday, also known as "The Great Pumpkin Race". This has become an annual trophy race to close out the season and is always filled with great times with good friends and awesome racing and not to mention GREAT food!!!!

PRO 4: My first two qualifiers left little to be desired although I was in the "A" qual after the resort out of the 23 trucks entered. This was the largest class of the event. I however felt I had something to prove to myself and my competitors going into the 3rd and final round. The track was very loose and definitely slower than the first rounds but I managed to win my heat along with setting my fast run for the day. This left me starting 5th in the A. 

I decided I was going to make a hard push to the front early so the leaders didn't get away early. This played out well for me, after the second lap I had takin the lead and started stretching the gap. I would continue on uncontested and lapping the entire 12 truck field, except 2nd and 3rd which were 9 and 20 seconds back!

My Tekin RX8/Pro4 powered OFNA Nexx 10SC was a rocket ship and was on rails! As always I have to thank OFNA, Tekin, Avid, BCE and Fastlane Graphix for their awesome support and products! They help me go fast and look good every week!

Nexx 10 SC's take 1 & 2 at JCP Racway - 10/8/11 by DJ

Reported by Jubal Dike - Saturday was the warm up to the Great Pumpkin Race to be held 10/15/11. It was an absolutely fabulous day and evening to be at the race track!

The only class I entered was Pro4 SC. The first qualifier I set the TQ at 17 7:13. I knew I had left plenty on the track because of a few mistakes.

The second qualifier I went out and just flat out over drove the truck. It was on rails but I just pushed entirely too hard and made too many mistakes again. New TQ was set at 17 7:10 by Chuck Hayse driving a Losi.

As usual with JCP the third qualifier was when the track was at it's best and I was determined to put the run in I expected. Long story short, my Nexx 10sc was on point. At 6 mins in I was on what I believe to be a new track record pace of 18 7:20. To my knowledge there has never been 18 laps turned on that particular layout. With less than 30 secs to go a combination of lappers and myself spoiled my run with a broken truck. Epic Fail

Well after I got the truck fixed it was main time. I was confident in my Tekin Pro4 powered Nexx 10 as long as I drove smart. That's exactly what I done. Early into the 10 min main there were several lead changes between myself, and a few others. After a few laps we settled in and my Ofna teammate, Brian Bourland, had the lead. I worked my way up to his bumper and when he opened the door I slid by for the lead. This is the way it would stay. Two Ofna Nexx 10's with Tekin horsepower and AKA rubber going 1-2!

Chad wins with his Nexx10sc 4x4 - 9/27/11 by davegm
Reported by Chad Bradley - Tuesday Night Nationals at Hot Rod Hobbies in Santa Clarita Ca. A full house of racers were on hand as well as a full heat and half in the Pro 4 SC class. The track layout is nearing the end and it cant come soon enough as it is getting rough and beat, next week Hot Rod Raceway will host the Reedy Truck Race of Champions so a brand new layout will put in this coming Sunday. In the Pro 4 SC class it was Kevin Smith from West Coast R/C who set the TQ in round 1 of qualifying, in round 2 Chad Bradley driving the Nexx10SC set a time that was a few seconds better than Kevin's round 1 time. The Pro 4 SC main was set to 8 minutes. The start of the Pro 4 main Chad lead out with Kevin applying some pressure for the first few minutes of the race, it looked like the battle between Chad and Kevin would go all the way to the end, till Kevin got caught up with some traffic after the big triple in the middle of the track. Chad says the track has been working great, easy to drive and made driving a near flawless run in the Pro 4SC main easy. Chad took the win, Kevin Smith finished 2nd, Eric Beier 3rd.

Local Joe Series Final Round - 9/17/11 by DJ
Reported by Michael Mallot - This weekend I traveled to Reo Raceway in Rockport, IN for the final round of the Local Joe race series. This was a 6 race series that consisted of 2 different tracks, Reo Raceway in Rockport, IN and SRI Raceway in Louisville, KY. I came into the final round with a slight lead after the throw outs. I had missed the last couple of rounds while I was doing the other big car stuff this summer. It was now or never to take down the title. 
 
The 1/8 E-Buggy class had been a very highly attested class the whole series and I knew I had to have a solid finish this race to take the overall points title. The 1st round got started and I got off to a fast start and was in a good rhythm clicking of consistent laps. I ended up the first round sitting 4th so I was happy with that. I made a tire change for the 2nd round and that was the ticket. The 2nd qual I got off to a quick start once again and the car was really good. I had the right tires and enough traction. I had a good run going and made a few mistakes but I was fast enough to jump up to 2nd overall after the 2nd qual. 3rd round and the car was really good so I just stayed smooth and consistent all round and ended up qualifying 2nd for the A main. I knew I had to finish 6th or better to take the title going into the main. The A main I got off to a good start and was just running consistent laps and not trying to push to hard. I was content with staying in 2nd and just cruising. About the halfway mark I cased the triple really hard and the car shut off. I was now in panic mode. The marshal picked up the car and looked at it and couldn't see anything wrong. He finally looked at the switch and it had gotten jarred loose and had shut off. He flipped the switch back on and I was back going. After having the mishap and I had dropped all the way to the back and was now a lap down to the guy I was battling with in the points. Once I got going again I just put my head down and got back into a solid rhythm and was setting a blistering pace. I got back around the lead pack and got my lap back and was now picking off drivers and moving back up threw the pack. I was not sure where I was but with about a minute to go I had gotten back to 4th so I just kept the hammer down down and knew if I stayed there I had the title. When the final tone sounded I ended up 4th for the night but I had wrapped up the overall points title. I was stoked that I was able to come back and finish the way I did after having the freak thing happen with the switch shutting off. I took the title by a mere 4 points over second. I had a good series with the 4 out of 6 rounds I was able to run I took 3 TQ awards, 2 wins, 1 3rd, and 1 4th.
 
I couldn't have done this without all of my sponsors helping me out and giving me the opportunity to run the best products in the industry. My OFNA/BCE Hyper 9e was solid all year and I never had one breakage or failure in all 4 races. My Tekin equipment and AKA tires were also flawless the whole series and gave me the power and grip I needed throughout the summer to get the solid finishes I had this year. The PT RC oils were so smooth and consistent all summer in the heat and in the cool I knew I had no worries of the shocks or diffs fading under either conditions. 
 
 Thanks again to all my great sponsors. I couldn't do all the racing I am without your help.
Chad wins with his Nexx10sc 4x4 - 9/19/11 by davegm
Reported by Chad Bradley - Friday Night Pro 4 SC Racing at Hot Rod hobbies. The Pro 4 SC class had a pretty good turn out with 11 trucks total for the night. In qualifying it was Stephen Bess taking the TQ in round 2 of qualifying beating out Chad Bradley's time by a half second from round 1. Chad failed to finish the second round due to a wreck early on the qualifier. In the 8 minute main Bess lead out on the first lap with Chad following closely with the Nexx10 SC in second, Chad was able to pass Stephen on the back strait on the first lap. Chad pulled to close to half lap lead in the first half of the main, a couple costly mistakes by Bradley and Bess was back out in front. Later in the main Chad was able to get around Bess for the lead and the win driving the Nexx10 SC. Chad said it felt good getting the win despite all the mistakes and the truck was good itself as well, could of been better cause the nights are starting to get cold and said it would of handled a little better with a lighter suspension setup.

A Race Report by Dustin Mc Cutcheon - 9/15/11 by DJ
Reported by Dustin McCutcheon - This past weekend I traveled to a new track in Silver City North Carolina for the 5th round of the NCCS series.  I am currently running in 4th place of 62 cars in my class.  My family and I arrived at the track on Friday to get some practice in before the next day of qualifying and racing.  I soon realized that the setup that I had on my Hyperstar was going to work great with the track and it was going to be a tire game.  Unfortunately the tires that I had with me were small pin tires and this being a new track the dirt was still a little fluffy.  I then went to a few of the pros that were there and purchased a tire that suited the track.  So Saturday morning I had a lot of confidence in my car and my setup and was looking toward to showing everyone how great my Hyperstar is!!  With some bad luck I was qualified 9th overall but had turned lap times that were the fastest in my class!!!!  When the main started I went from 9th to 4th in the very first lap.  I continued in 4th for the first segment of the race but after a great pit stop I came out in 3rd place and never looked back.  Thanks a lot for a great car and looking forward to getting my car on the podium more often.

Nexx 8 and Nexx 10sc take wins at the Heartnut Festival Cash Race - 9/10/11 by DJ

Reported by Jubal Dike - JCP/RC was back at it again for the Heartnut Festival Cash Race in Saturday. With a sketchy forecast it scared some of the out of towner's away, but we still ended up with 68 entries.  As luck would have it the tracks were dialed all day/night long till the last main (ebug), then mother nature couldn't hold back any longer!

I entered both Pro4 and 1/8 electric buggy for the day. With basically zero practice time because of prior engagements, I was behind right from the start.

We ran qual points this race, which is not the norm for JCP. This would prove to cost me the TQ in Pro4 and 3rd in ebug qualifying. I ended up 3rd and 4th in the two classes regardless.

In the Pro4 main I received an unwelcome shove off the track by an overzealous driver which put me deep in the field. This proved to cost me any chance of winning because by the time I worked through everyone I was already almost a lap down. However with determination and some luck, as well as a dialed Nexx10 and new Tekin Pro4 Motor, I was able to finish second.

At the tone for the ebuggy main the sky lit up an the sprinkles and thunder started. I got off to a good start and was instantly working on the leaders. As the rain picked up I was swapping the lead with Ralph Krum (Nexx8) and we were only 5 secs in front of Brian Bourland (Hyper Star E). About halfway through I had a battery connection fail ending my night. This ended up being not such a bad thing. About the time I got my buggy from the track the rain cut loose! The race continued in the downpour with Ralph and Bourland finishing 1-2! Their cars were a MESS an they were soaked!

Chad wins with his Nexx10sc 4x4 - 9/2/11 by davegm
Reported by Chad Bradley - Hot Rod Raceway in Santa Clarita Ca. held their 2nd Driver Appreciation Race Friday night with discounted race entry fees as well as a free dinner. Hot Rod Hobbies holds their driver appreciation club race every first Friday of the month. The Pro 4 SC class had 16 drivers in attendance with a total of 80-90 entries Fri. night. Chad Bradley driving the Nexx10SC set the tq time in both rounds of qualifying with Stephen Bess from Car Action putting his 4wd SC in the second position after qualifying. A few heats before the Pro 4 SC main, both Bess and Bradley had a hard fought 1/8 nitro main, so the Pro 4 main looked to be another good battle. Bess challenged Chad for the first few minutes of the Pro 4 main till a mistake by Bess either over a jump or corner allowed Chad to pull to a comfortable lead and eventually the win in the 8 minute main event. Chad said this was one of best nights that his Nexx10SC felt, he said he was able to drive it extremely hard, throwing it into the corners, "It was just real fun to drive, very fast in and out of the corners" Chad said.

2nd Annual Labor Day Shootout at Indy RC 9/3/11 by DJ

Reported by Michael Malott -  I was ready to go for the e buggy class. I knew a few new guys had made the switch from Nitro to Electric and had gotten really fast the the 1/8 buggy class was going to be a fast and hard class to win. I ran a couple packs in practice to get ready for the quals. My car was good right from the get go so I just left it alone. The first qual started really well and I was flying and on a TQ pace when it all started to go south. I got into traffic and started making a lot of mistakes and that drooped me down off of TQ pace. I ended up 3rd for the round so I was pretty happy with that. The 2nd round of quals started and after the shuffle I was in the A qualifier. The qual started off bad and right from the start, I was making stupid mistakes again and was having some troubles. I got the car rolling mid way through the qual and was clicking off fast laps and making up a lot of time but it was to late for the qual. I ended up 4th for the round and that is where I would start on the grid for the final. The A main got off to a good start and everybody was able to get away clean. Fellow OFNA team driver Brian Bourland had jumped out to an early lead and I had settled into 2nd. Bourland was setting a fast pace and I was pushing really hard to catch up to him. I was making up a little time and he got into traffic and had a few issues and made a few mistakes to let me catch up. I finally got to him and ran right behind him for about 4 laps putting pressure on him hoping he would make a mistake. In one section of tha track I was a little faster then he was and I put a lot of pressure on him and he let me go. I got to the lead and he stayed right with me pacing me the whole way. We got to lap traffic once again and I was able to get through it clean but Bourland got hung up with a lapper and that gave me the advantage I needed to pull away and take the win. I was super pumped with the results after being off the pace in quals and coming back and winning the A main. 

Also Brian Bourland and Jubal Dike were also out in attendance, showing how fast the Hypers were as Bourland took 2nd and Jubal just missing the podium in 4th

Brian Bourland gets the double at JCP - 8/27/11 by DJ
Reported by Brian Bourland - I raced this past weekend at JCP the Midwest Monster, for a club race.  Short course and my Nexx 10sc was more of the same.  TQ/Win.  The losi's are coming on strong tho. (good thing they seem to overheat easily)!!

In 8th scale I drove my HyperStar-e Bump edition with good results.  They mixed us with nitro due to turnout, I qualified 2nd with a Mugen ECO in TQ by 2seconds.  In the 15 minute main us 2 e buggies pulled out front.  I ran at a comfortable pass, never really pulling past 1/2 throttle on straight and short jumped a section that uses a lot of juice (mah) to get over it.  The advantage with short jumping was 2 fold as I never wrecked there and I was saving battery life along with a steady pace on the straight. (I mean with ebuggy I could light the wheels down the whole straight or anywhere if i wanted, so I was really trying to control the motor for optimal battery life).  Half way through I drove to the lead on a bobble from the Mugen.  I led a few laps until I came in for a simulated pit stop and had a bad out lap.  I was never more than 10 seconds behind the leader after pitting.  Knowing the driving habits of the leader I knew if I just stayed close enough and at a good pace, I would finish and he would dump out.  With 30 seconds to go that is just what happened, his battery dumped and I sailed home to Victory!!!!
