Robin Nelson wins with the 4x4 Hyper10sc - 4/15/11 by davegm
Reported by Robin Nelson - The Spring Sting at The Badlands RC Supercross track in Myrtle Beach, SC was held April 15th and 16th. 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.

Hyper 9e win at Reo Raceway 4/16/11 by DJ

Reported by Michael Malott - This weekend I traveled to Reo Raceway in Rockport, IN to get some testing done with the new chassis & front end for my OFNA Hyper 9e & new PT racing oils. I got there early for plenty of practice to see what was going to work best for outdoor so I can be prepared for when we have the first big outdoor race in a couple of weeks. 
 The 1st heat came around and I was feeling really confident in my car & in my tire choice for the round. The heat started off really good & I was turning some really fast laps & was on a TQ run. About halfway through I started to make some stupid mistakes & had a couple problems with lapped cars & I ended up turning a 19 5:03 which would be TQ for the 1st round. The 2nd heat I made a tire change & went from a SS Gridiron to a SS Impact. When the heat got started I was turning super fast lap times & was on a 20 lap pace & a new TQ at the halfway point. I over jumped the car jump & ended up pulling the driveshaft out of the center diff so I was done for the round. The 3rd round I made a couple changes to my setup to try & get it a little better. The 3rd round was really good & I was happy with the car but I made a lot of mistakes & ended up only turning 18 laps but I still won the heat. My TQ from the first round was good enough to TQ the class and put me on the point for the main. 
 The 12 minute main got started & I got out to a really good jump & was clicking off fast laps and trying to get away from the field. About 2 minutes in I got into lap traffic & it was getting pretty rough on the track. I started making mistakes & trying new lines to try and get through the traffic. Once I got into traffic that allowed 2nd place to catch up. We both got through traffic about the same time & we were running a very fast pace. We were both pushing each other & making mistakes & trading the lead back & forth. At the 5 minute mark the traffic had cleared really good & it made it a lot easier to race each other. At about the 6 minute mark the 2nd place guy broke & was forced to retire from the race. I got into my groove & started laying down fast laps & was pulling away from the field. At the 8 minute mark I had a lap on the field and & still pulling away. At the end of the 12 minute main I took the win & ended up putting 2 laps on the field. I was really happy with the way my car was running & I am looking forward to outdoors in a couple of weeks. My OFNA/BCE Hyper 9e was dialed all night. My Tekin Power & AKA rubber I was able to have all the power & traction I needed all night. The PT RC Oils provided me with a smooth & consistent ride as well.


Nexx 10sc taking another win at OCRC - 4/13/11 by DJ

Reported by Gaige Herrera - In the Pro 4 short course class, on the brand new track layout Gaige was able to get the T/Q in the second round. There was a round 10 trucks in the class and a total of 60 racers on Wednesday night club racing. By the end of the first lap it seemed like it was going to be a easy win for the Nexx10sc. However with 2:00 minutes to go, got tangled up with lapped traffic, and allowed second place to catch up. It was a close battle with a lap to go till second place bobbled and gave Gaige the win.

Nexx10 sc wins at WCRC-4-13-11 by DJ
Reported by James Grossaint - Wednesday nigh club racing at WCRC was stacked in 4wd Sc with 11 entries. I was late to the track and had one shot to get my Nexx 10sc in the A Main, This was the first race for my new short course and after a battle with lap traffic and fast locals I was able to pull off TQ by 3 seconds. With an 11 car main this would put the Nexx to the test but I was confident because this car was dialed. At the tone I quickly made work on the field and in a break away run 1st and 2nd could get some distance on the pack and I would hold  the lead until the 4 minute mark we I bobbled with a lap car and was left to loose (thanks to marshals having an important conversation) but with the Nexx laying down 1/8 lap times and having no trouble cutting under any car I made my move in the S turn going in hot causing the leader to push out allowing me to thread the needle right by and with clear track I would start to rebuild my lead finishing 3 seconds ahead of 2nd , 3rd and lower were lapped. The Nexx is a serious race car and with a box stock setup can keep up and pass anything on the market.

HyperStar wins at Revelation - 4/9/11 by DJ

Reported by Marc Maglinte - My first race with the 1/8th off-road HyperStar Buggy!  This past weekend I race with the HyperStar at Revelation Raceway in Ontario Ca.  I got there in time to make at least one qualifier in Novice/Amateur class that landed me in second place for the start of the main.  Which put me behind James Grossaint driving his Hyper 9e.  At the start James and I would lead the pack.  In a few laps we were exchanging places between second and third.  By the third the leader had broke, and that put us in first and second.  James had to retire a few laps later so I came into first place and never look back taken the win.  I have been working on set up for the last 3 weeks and it paid off.  All the little changes and tips I got from DJ help out, Thank you DJ!  The HyperStar had a lot of steering and great corner speed, hopefully I can continue to improve on the HyperStar setup to make it even better.

Gaige wins at OCRC driving the Nexx10sc - 4/9/11 by DJ
Reported by Gaige Herrera - Saturday night club racing at OCRC. There was a total of 10 heats and I ran the Pro 4 SC class driving my New Nexx10sc. First qualifier I ended up getting a decent run and went a 14/5:01. Second qualifier I had a really good run and got a 15/5:13 to set a new T/Q. During the main it was a close battle between Gaige and Chris Jaroz driving the new Associated Sc 4x4 until he got caught in traffic and I pulled away to get the win.

ULTRA LX2 RTR is Shipping! by davegm
The ULTRA LX2 RTR  continues the legacy of the ultra series, bringing new innovative features to this hi-performance 1/8th scale off-road buggy. Our research and development team found that this kit was very easy to drive with smooth and consistent handling, thanks to new features such as the 16mm big bore shocks, triad racing tires and dual fiber disc brakes. The chassis has been redesigned for better balance by shifting weight to the center, and the overall weight of the kit has been notably reduced. New improved stone guards, integrated fuel clips and the new cab forward style body top off the new additions to this revamped racing machine.
Nexx 10sc win at Hot Rod Raceway with Chad Bradley 3/29/11 by DJ
Reported by Chad Bradley - In the Pro 4 Short Course class Chad Bradley, driving the Nexx10SC, TQed both rounds of qualifying.  There were around 18-20 drivers listed in the Pro 4 class and 101 total at the Hot Rod Tuesday Night Nationals. In the Pro 4 SC main Chad lead off early in the beginning and pulled from the rest of field by the end of the first lap. It looked to be an easy win for Chad driving the new Nexx10SC however toward the end of the second lap a loose sensor wire caused the truck to loose power for about 10 seconds before starting up again. Bradley had to come back from last and worked his way back to the top 3 and the sensor wire came loose again putting him back down to the middle of pack. With some wire issues taking place in the first half of the main Mike Duncan was way out in the lead and looked to win convincingly, but Chad clicked off some fast laps and made short work of the rest of field and regained the lead with a couple minutes left in the 7 minute main. Chad took the win with the Nexx10SC, Mike Duncan 2nd with the Losi, Tanner Stump 3rd with the Losi.

Kortz takes the win in 4x4 Short Course at Psycho Nitro Blast 2011 - 3/10/11 by DJ
Reported by Robin Nelson - The 4th Annual Psycho Nitro Blast was held March 10th through the 13th in the Southeastern Arena in Unadilla, GA.  The track was designed for this race and over 500 drivers came out for this insane "Jab the Vein" classic.  Practice began on Thursday and qualifying began on Friday afternoon at 5:30pm.  Jeremy Kortz and I both raced in the 1/8 Pro Nitro Buggy and 4x4 Electric Open Short Course classes.  OFNA and Werks Racing (a sponsor of the race) had a great weekend on the podium.  Kortz qualified 3rd in Pro Buggy and finished 4th in the hour long A main.  He also TQ'd and won the 4x4 Short Course A-main.  We ran two A-mains for this class and the times were averaged together to indicate the winner.  I finished in the C main in Pro Buggy and finished 4th in the A-main in Short Course.  This is an unusual race since racing is held 24 hours a day for 4 days.  The huge facility was awesome and the event was well executed. Thanks to Ollie, Dave and Bob for hosting such a great weekend of racing!

Reported by The Bumps - West Coast R/C Raceway: Sunday races at West Coast RC found Tim Bump coming out of retirement to start getting ready for the 2011 season. At the start of the 8 buggy A-main, Hector Sanchez took an early lead followed by Scott Howard driving his Hyper 9e and James Grossaint driving his Hyper 9e. Tim Bump found himself and his Hyper 9e in the back of the pack and about a half a lap down after a first lap incident. Scott took the lead at about the two minute mark followed by James in second place. With two minutes to go in the 6 minute race, the crowd was going crazy with a 3 car battle developing for the win. Scott was still leading the race, James in second and Tim Bump in third. During a close battle for the second spot, James bobbled and Tim got around to take the second position but ran out of time to put any pressure on Scott who went on the win after leading most of the race.

Reported by Chad Bradley - Hot Rod Hobbies: The first Friday night club race at Hot Rod Raceway was a huge success bringing in over 100 entries to their  new club night. In the Pro 4wd SC class Chad Bradley took the win in both rounds of qualifying driving the SCRT-10 setting the TQ going into seven minute main event.

Will wins at new track in Palmdale Ca. - 3/8/11 by DJ

Reported by Will Eikenberry - I went to the new track in Palmdale called Controlled Chaos Raceway, it's a little small, maybe the size of hot rod but square. The track is SC all the way with small jumps and very small line, you have to right on to go fast. They have been running it dry so you have lots of grip but there are so many little bumps and ruts you have to be careful about getting it sliding.I got a little practice in before the heats and finished the first heat second and the same in round two to another guy. I had run a few 23.7s but mostly 24s. I was worried about the first lap, the straight goes into a 180 and I was sure there was going to pile. There was but somehow I got through it with the lead. I held the lead for three min with second and third catching me and bobbling over and over. I turned it over and and gave the lead away, I was matching speed with the leader but wasn't making any time and he was driving clean. At five min mark I got it together and ran five low 22s to catch the leader. I was faster in a couple of sections but he would get away from me just before the straight in a series of diagonal bumps. I would be right on him again but couldn't make a clean pass. with half a lap to go the pressure paid off and he piped it giving me the lead to the end.

Randy & Jason takes 1 & 2 at WCRC - 3/6/11 by davegm
jason_kungReported by Jason Kung - West Coast R/C Raceway: We went to West Coast R/C Raceway early to test out different set-ups for the new HoBao Hyper Star.  After a couple of hours of testing, we already found a good set-up.  The new car is a easier and driver friendly car. As we were getting ready for the races, fellow teammate James Grossaint showed up.  Since he came, it was a perfect chance to test the times on the Hyper Star.  In the first round of qualifying, Jason Kung set the early TQ with Randy Kung in second and James Grossaint in third.  In the second qualifier, Jason improved his old TQ time by 3 seconds. Randy also improved his time by 3 seconds.  As the mains came, Jason, Randy, and James stayed together with first, second, and third position.  Racing until the last minute, Jason and Randy went for the quad line instead of the double- double.  However, a slight air collision gave the better end to Randy.  The race finished with Randy in first, Jason in second, and James in third.

Reported by Randy Jason - West Coast R/C Raceway: In the 1/8 electric buggy class, Jason would run the Hyper 9e with the new #29513 center universal drive shaft, new #29333 delrin spur gear, and new #29319 CNC rear toe-in plate.  In round 1 of qualifying, Jason started from the back, but because of IFMAR style qualifying, driving through traffic wasn't too bad.  Jason set the early TQ in round 1.  In round 2, Jason would still finish in 1st while holding on to the TQ spot for the day.  In the main event Jason started from the pole position and led the whole race even improving on his TQ time...WoW!
