A Nexx 8 win at Full Throttle Raceway, 6/12/2011 by DJ
Reported by John Hunter - Round two of the series took place at Full Throttle Raceway an awesome outdoor facility located in the middle of the state of Minnesota, we had perfect weather, and about 84 entries for the day. In electric 1/8th buggy I was on par the first two heats to take TQ but had battery problems that ended both runs short. I found in one of the packs the ribbon between the cells had failed, I found a loaner battery for the third heat and took it easy so I could get a clean run in and hope to be at the front of the pack at the start of the main. I started in fourth and quickly made my way past 3rd and 2nd to stay there far a good of the race while battling for the 1st position with AE driver Aaron Bahner, we swapped spots a couple of times and with about 8 laps to go Aaron made a costly mistake on a pipe. I led the rest of the race and got across the line just in time to get an extra lap to lap the field. I took over first place in the points chase with that win, wish me luck!
Good job John, glad the weather is clearing up so you can get those race wins with your Nexx 8.

Kortz and Hyper wins at Hot Rod Hobbies - 5/24/11 by DJ
Reported by Jeremy Kortz - I had some time to head on out to Hot Rod Hobbies on a Tuesday night for some SC and Buggy racing, getting some wheel time before the Nats at Thunder Alley. In Short Course Unlimited, I managed the TQ in the 1st round no spectacular fastest lap as the track has a lot of runs on it and turned into bumpy track. The race was a lead from the start to a win at the end, lapping the field at the 5 minute mark over a Durango and a Losi for the podium spots. In Buggy I also TQ'ed and won over Steven Best in a Losi ride in a 10 minute race, my Werks engines and JConcepts Products work well with my Hyper rides. Now it's time to get ready for the Nationals glad it's here back in So Cal and Thunder Alley has a great facility and I love the designs of the tracks as they always make outstanding track builds, never a dull moment as you keep full concentration to your buggy and the track, "Wish me Luck!!" and watch on RCLive.com for up to the moment racing.

randy_kungReported by Randy Kung - For the second round of the West Coast Championship Points Series, Randy Kung would race his HoBao Hyper 10SC in the Expert 4WD SC Class. In the first round of qualifying, Randy was unable to get the TQ since he had electronic issues by the 4 minute mark. In the second round of qualifying, after switching systems, Randy was behind the TQ pace by 1.5 seconds when his car began losing power.  He was still able to finish the race starting in the second position.  In the main event, he started out front, due to the TQ leaving early. Three drivers were battling for the top position. Two of the drivers had issues and had to pull it off leaving Randy with a big lead and the win.

Bourland takes Nexx 10sc for some racing action at Indy Rc Raceway - 5/20/11 by DJ
Reported by Brian Bourland - Was back out at Indy Rc Raceway, Friday night under the lights for a test and tune race session.  In the first qualifier I was able to lay down a new track record of 15 laps 5:17.8 sec run.  With a new fast lap of 20.02. This truck keeps getting better. I've been making small changes and the truck really seems to respond. 
    In the main I had a bad start and didn't react quick enough to the tone. The double file nascar style start meant I was under attack quick. I was 2nd into the first corner and log jam behind my truck and collected me around. I was near the back of the pack  coming around for the first lap. I knew chasing down the OFNA  Hyper10sc would be a tough task. With a few minutes to go I was closing in on the lead and an incident with a lapper erased any time gained. In the end I settled for 2nd place, with Tom Houston & his Hyper 10sc taking the win. All in all a good result for OFNA with a 1-2 podium & the Nexx10sc taking fast lap at 20.4 sec!

Saturday Racing. . 
Saturday was back to the track for daytime racing with mains transitioning into darkness. We had 12 heats total over the different classes offered. Saturday saw the largest 4x4 turnout yet, with 18 there was sure to be a b main. After tasting defeat for the 1st time with the Nexx10sc, I was determined to make up for my mistake from the previous nite. It wasn't until the 3rd qualifier I was able to set TQ and hold off a late Losi charge.

  In the main a better start saw the Nexx10sc get out front. After the first lap and some carnage behind me, it was smooth sailing for most of the race. I was able to really concentrate on my lines and work the traffic in the right spots. After the 7 minute main I crossed the line on my own lap & a triple for the day. The Nexx10sc took TQ, fast lap in the main & brought home the win!

Bourland takes a 3peat with the Nexx 10sc - 5/11/11 by DJ
Reported by Brian Bourland - Headed out to Indy RC Raceway this past Wednesday for a little bit of 4x4sc action with the Nexx10sc. This was my 2nd trip to the newly remodeled Indy RC. Just a few minor adjustments to the truck, provided me with the feel I was looking for.   Even though I narrowly missed TQ the truck was awesome.  The Q2 result was more down to a mental mistake and the truck being slightly underpowered down the straightaway with the 5.5 installed. By main time I knew if I could just limit my errors a win would be in the cards.  After following the Losi into the first few corners, I put my nose inside on a bobble by the leader and never looked back.  First 3 times out with this truck and 3 wins in a row!  This truck is so easy to drive, it's a blast!

Thanks OFNA for having such awesome products!!

A Nexx-8 win at WCRC 5/10/11 by DJ

Reported by James Grossaint - Close to 70 entries Friday at WCRC in preparation for Saturday which was the Championship series so many racers were getting their cars dialed. I had my brand new Nexx 8 with no track time ready to go. After a rough first qualifier I was able to learn the car and make a few changes which lead to my TQ run in the second qualifier. For the main I was able to get a clean start, stretch my lead and hold it from Charlie (Team Novak). I was impressed with the Nexx 8, the car is well balanced and smooth.It's a great way to start off with a new car and get a win the first time out. Thanks to OFNA Racing for a superb racing machine, looking forward to bringing more wins to the Nexx-8.   

Malott wins at Local Joe Series-Round 1 at SRI Raceway - 4/30/11 by DJ
Reported by Michael Malott - This weekend I traveled to SRI Raceway in Louisville, KY for the first round of the Local Joe Series. The Local Joe is a 6 race series covering 3 tracks in Southern Indiana & Northern Kentucky. My main focus in the 1st round was to put in a smooth & consistent run & then go from there. I started off running really consistent & not making any mistakes & not pushing the limits. I made a few small mistakes which cost me a few seconds but I ended up setting the mark to beat in the 1st round. I was a little unhappy with the way the car felt in the first round so in between rounds I changed tires & a rear spring & went out for a couple laps of practice & the changes made a huge difference on the loose track. The 2nd round came up and I was very happy with the way the car was handling so I starting pushing to see if I could better my TQ run from the 1st round only to have problems about 3 min. into the run. I was happy with the car just disappointed I had problems. In between the 2nd & 3rd rounds I went out again, ran a few laps & decided I would make another change to start the 3rd round. The 3rd round started & I was setting in P1 so I had clear track for the first couple of minutes so I pushed the pace & started turning fast laps & halfway in I was about 10 seconds ahead of my TQ run in the 1st round. With about 30 seconds to go I made a huge mistake & dropped back a couple seconds. In the last 2 laps my OFNA teammate Brian Bourland & I swapped the lead back & forth a few times only for him to make a mistake at the end & allow me to pull away again & take the top spot in the quals. In the 3rd round I was really happy with my car so I decided to leave it alone & run the same setup in the main.

The main started off really well, my OFNA teammate & I were able to get away from the field early & were starting to pull away. I made a mistake under the bridge section & it took the marshal a few seconds to get to me & that dropped me back to about 5th spot. I knew I had a lot of time left so I put that behind me & started hitting my marks & making a charge. When I got to 3rd I could see the top 2 were starting to battle it out and if I could get to them I would be able to make my moves while they were racing each other. I caught them with about 4 min. to go & stayed right there with them until about 3 min. to go. I made a move on the leaders & went to the inside of both of them coming onto the straight & was able to out power them down the straight to take the lead. Once I got to the lead they were still battling it out & then they tangled under the bridge section. That allowed me to get away from the rest of the field & cruise for the last 2 min. to take the win. I was pumped with the win & to start the series off right. My OFNA/BCE Hyper 9e was awesome & really reacted to all the changes I made throughout the day. My Tekin Electronics, AKA tires, PT RC Racing oils & BCE Products were awsome, they gave me the power, traction & consistancy throughout the day to take TQ & the A-main win.

OFNA wins some MMA Wrestling, Oh wins with Hypers at Hot Rods - 4/29/11 by DJ
Reported by Dj Sandate - So Jeremy called out for James and I to come out to Hot Rods on a Friday to do some club racing, it sounded like a plan "SO-ROAD-TRIP!!!!" As our trip always comes with a place for some good eating one of kind places in the heart of the L.A. area. This time it was over to Culver City to Johnny's Pastrami, Ohh man so-so good. Back to the road and getting to the track for  some racing and other things, Kortz so us the way on how to TQ and win in both his Hyper 9 nitro buggy and Hyper 10sc. Kortz txtd me to  come over to get whooped by your daddy and that's what happened in buggy class as I got owned, but I got my payback before the daddy whoopin. Kortz flexing his muscles throughout the night and talking about MMA fighting for the weekend had him pumped up to come a pick with me, that was a no-no as I turned him inside out, gave him the pit table rub and the famous "I'll put you in the dirt on the side of this hill if you don't stop". It finally ended by grabbing his money maker driving hand for a submission. Then it was to racing, for Kortz it was a cake walk in SC as battled for the first two laps and poured it on after that to lap the field, it almost looked like he was in slow motion on taking that win with the Hyper 10sc. In buggy he was blistering us early with his Hyper 9 and I was in 3rd in my Nexx-N making the pass on 2nd when MMA some how got on the track and I was checked into the board by my buddy Kortz - too funny we had a blast after that with us two tire locking, wing tying and brake checking each other till the end like I said it too much fun. But Kortz I'm working on some more stamina to go 5 rounds but like I said I'll end you quick in 45 seconds.

Hyper 10sc wins as a Rent-A-Ride at Revelations Raceway- 4/23/11 4/23/11 by DJ
Reported by James Grossaint - Revelations on Saturday turned out 7 entries in short course and with Silver State SC around the corner I was saving my truck and left it home. My partner in crime Dj and his daughter Cindy had both brought Hyper 10Sc to play with during practice. I decided to run the Dj RAR (Rent-A-Ride) which was dialed and I held off local fast guy Alan for the TQ until our 3rd qualifier the ESC could take no more and fried because the motor bearing locked up. The night was over, Dj was calling the drivers up to race the main and I was stuck watching, until the Cindy Rent A Ride pulled up and I set the RAR Hyper 10 down and fought till the 7 min main was over narrowly winning. A big Thanks to the Sandate family for their cars!

The day started out as a nice spring day and ended with the remains of a mid-western storm hitting the area.  With over a hundred drivers, we managed to complete all rounds of qualifying and all of the mains except for the last two before the rain hit.  I ran both HyperStar 1/8th scale buggy and 4x4 open Short Course truck.  I qualified 13th in buggy and TQ'd with my Hyper 10sc.  I went on to win the SC truck main before the day ended. Even with the unpredictable weather, the Badlands track crew did an exceptional job getting the race done.

Another Hyper9e "Winning" at WCRC 4-17-11 by DJ
Reported by James Grossaint - I raced at WCRC on Sunday, It was a busy night with 12 heats and I raced both 4x4 Short Course and 1/8 buggy. I was able to TQ both classes with my Nexx 10sc and my Hyper 9e Bump edition.  Comfortably with a lap on the field in Short Course and 3 sec lead in 1/8. Both Nexx 10sc and Hyper 9 E loved the high bite clay.  In my Short Course heat a couple small fumbles with traffic would cost me the race but the Nexx 10 turned the fastest laps all night.  On the start of my 1/8 main a small pile up gave me a 4 second advantage and I would lead the whole race and not look back stretching my lead to 8 sec at one point, the Hyper 9E was smooth, consistent and easy to drive.
