King Kung's take 1 & 2 at WCRC - 2/27/11 by davegm
Reported by Randy Kung - West Coast R/C Raceway: Today had two heats of 4WD Short Course so Jason Kung decided to run his short course with Randy Kung. In the first heat of qualifying, Randy broke his record by 5 seconds which allowed him to earn a 14 lap run finishing in a 14/5:19! In Jason’s first qualifier, he started from the back and took too long to get to the front. However, in the second qualifier, Jason started from the front and beat Randy’s old record with a 13/5:02 even with two minor mistakes.  After finishing in that time, Randy knew the main was going to be a battle for the win. As the main events came, Randy started from the pole with Jason in second. It was a continuous battle between Randy and Jason swapping for first and second. Like magnets, they drove battling for the whole race until the last straightaway. The interval from first to second was 0.3 seconds!

FEBRUARY... A MONTH OF CLUB RACING by davegm
Reported by Robin Nelson - February was a month of club racing at my local track, The Hobby Connection in Easley, SC. I ran both 4x4 Short Course Truck and 1/8th scale buggy.  The weather has alternated from temperatures in the 30's to the high 70's this month so I had a wide range of conditions to race in and prepare for the upcoming Psycho Nitro Blast in March.  This area has had a surge of new drivers in the 1/8th scale class, but the Short Course racers are still the majority of the 60 to 75 drivers each week.  I've won both Short Course and1/8th scale classes this month to keep OFNA Hypers at the top of the podium.  I've enjoyed this month at home since the bigger races out of this area area bout to begin.  Happy Birthday to Levi! He celebrated his 10th birthday at the race track.  I really enjoyed the cake and Levi loved the new truck body painted by his dad.  Thanks for letting me eat half of your cake, Levi!
Kortz takes TQ at Nitro Challenge - 2/27/11 by davegm
Kortz-4x4Reported by Not Kortz - The Dirt Nitro Challenge is always one of the biggest events of the year and 2011 was no exception. In the Elect Short Course 4x4 class, Jeremy Kortz ended up TQ after Thursday's qualifiers. Saturday was main event day for truck racing and Jeremy Kortz was positioned out front TQ'ing the popular Short Course 4x4 class. When the main event sounded, Jeremy shot out in the lead and led for the first 2 laps. Casey Peck took advantage of a small mistake by Kortz and took the lead. Casey was on fire during the mains and took the win followed by a hard charging Jeremy Kortz in 2nd and Kevin Gahan in 3rd.


Hot Rod Hobbies on Satuday night with Hypers - 2/9/11 by DJ
Reported by DJ - It was the dynamic duo again (James and myself) heading back out to Hot Rod Hobbies to have some good racing with the Hyper cars. I brought my Hyper TT and Hyper 9-2.0 and James testing out his new Tim Bump edition chassis. My Hyper 2.0 would be hard to get a hold of as I was having glitching problems through the race program and the main and would have to call it quits early in the main because the glitching only got worse. My Hyper TT however was good from practice to racing the only hiccup in my TT was my fan breaking and not have a spare on hand so I would run minus a fan on my Novak Havoc Pro SC. The TT took it's paces as it would TQ in Sc Unlimited and go on to finish it off with a win in the class without failing or over heating. I would run hard in the race to pull away from teammate Will Eikenberry to get a lap on him during the race, I pushed hard over the ski-jump to make fast laps over and over. The TT took the beating as it continued to land on the flat over the S-section of the track to make those good laps, Hyper TT got a lot of looks from the little truggy as it continues to impress. James was able to grab the TQ in his class in the second round and put down a clean run in the quals but in the main it was a different story as he was taking out by a truggy and causing his servo to overextend locking up the servo and ending his night, don't worry James your car looks good the win is just around the corner. Oh and I also forgot to mention as we were heading over to Hot Rod's my Mitsubishi ESC (Alternator) in my Mazda truck took a dumped while we were cursing up the 5fwy at Dodger's stadium. I would like to thank Mr.Pat Grossaint (James dad) for helping us out and getting us back on the road and making it to HR.

Jason wins the WCRC 1/8th Main - 2/11/11 by davegm
Reported by Randy Jason - Saturday Night Off Road Racing At West Coast R/C Raceway: Randy Kung didn't come race because of school work so Jason Kung would try to cover both classes.  Since there wasn't too many 1/8 scale drivers Jason signed up for the 4wd Short Course class, and 1/8 buggies would run with the short courses.  In round 1 of qualifying Jason ran his Hyper 10 SC and TQ'd over the 1/8 scale buggies finishing in a 13/ 5:08.  In round 2 of qualifying Jason ran equally fast and held on his TQ'd over the 1/8 buggies. When the mains came Jason brought out his 1/8 HoBao Hyper Star to run the 7 minute A-Main event.  Jason lead the whole race from start to finish.

Dj wins with Hyper TT and Hyper 9e at Hot Rod Hobbies by DJ

Reported by Dj - Last Saturday James & I headed out to Hot Rod Hobbies to try out the cross over track, with a fast high speed sweeper corner, triples & quad jumps the track looked like a lot of fun. With a quick stop over the famous Serrento's Deli in Culver City for some killer Pastrami's we food coma-ed over to the track ready for some action. As soon as we got to the track James was locked & loaded with a battery in his Hyper 9e & practicing laps. I was ready to whoop out the Hyper TT on stock tires & see how it felt with outdoor conditions. My TT was stuck to the track & every turn you could hear the tires screeching which made a fun time.James also was having fun on the track with his 9e & we were set to race for the afternoon. Qualifying was a little harsh in electric buggy as my buggy was loose on my tire choice and not looking over my buggy when needed but in my Hyper TT it went to TQ in Unlimited SC. James got the better qualifying time in buggy so he started 2nd, I started 5th but the race was a little hectic as I was barreled into last into the first corner from cars behind me. It took some time to get clear of drivers to get into second & try to catch James who was leading by 11 sec. But with some bobbles from James(I think he heard his name too much and he started to glitch) I got closer to him. He caught up to back markers fast and they were racing for positions as James was lapping but they did not want to give up their spots and ended up tagging James to put him upside down and for me to take over top spot and grab the win. For James the back marker hit took him out of the race for the DNF and finish toward the back "DARN!!"

   My Hyper TT was ready to take it all for Unlimited SC as my TT was even faster as the evening set & the track was at it's best. I made one turnover in the race but the rest of the race was destroyed by the TT as I continued to lap drivers over and over in the 7 min race.

CRCRC MIDWEST NITRO CHAMPS 2011 by DJ

Reported by Brian Bourland - The race weekend started off with a snow storm Thursday that brought 4-5 inches to the area.  Traveling through the icy conditions was tough at times but I arrived at the track later that evening.  It was just in time to setup and checkout the last few minutes of open practice. Friday consisted of 2 rounds of controlled practice.  That was followed by one round of 5 min. heats to seed the qualifiers for Saturday using your best 3 consecutive laps.   Saturday qualifying started off a little slow for me.  After the dust had settled by the end of the day, I was sitting 12 overall in the electric 1/8 buggy class.  In the B main I was able to come out with a Win and take the 1 bump spot to the A final.  The A main started off like a freight train and I got a good start.  A little bobble in the infield section a few laps later after feeling some pressure, quickly dropped me back thru the field.  With time left on the clock I put my head down and tried to make up as many positions as possible.  With the super stiff competition in this one, I knew it would be tough.  By the end of the main I was in the 8 position, and that is where I would finish. Through it all my OFNA Hyper 9e was flawless and so fun to drive. Thanks to OFNA for making such awesome products!


Kortz takes more wins at Hot Rod Hobbies Tues night Nats. - 1/19/11 by DJ
Reported by DJ - More wins for "The Man", "The Myth", and maybe a "Legend" Jeremy Kortz as he took more wins with his Hyper rides last night at Hot Rod Hobbies-Tuesday Night National series. His Hyper 9-2.0 and Hyper 10sc put down great runs to take TQ in both classes, but in the mains it was no competition as he would put 2 laps on the field in the nitro buggy class and 1 lap on the field in Short Course Open. Hot Rod still tipping the scales at more than 100 entries on a Tuesday and 12 heats made for a lot of racing "This almost sounds like a bowling night" I sure wish I could get out the and race on a Tuesday night with Kortz but it's up to the Big Boss to let me get out there. How about it Boss????

DJ wins with Hyper 10sc Airtronic Champ at Revelation Raceway - 1/16/11 by davegm
Reported by DJ Sandate - Revelation had it's Airtronics Winternationals Race, it was a beautiful Saturday with 79 degree wheather and almost 200 entries for the first big off road in So.Cal. there were plenty of classes including Short Course Open. I ran my Hyper 10SC and got the TQ and the win, my radio went bad so I only made 1 qual with a help of a friend Danny Palmarin he let me use his Spektrum radio to finish the 1 qual and run the main. The track had line drive jumps and a big 35 footer, with the Hyper 10sc I attacked every jump like a buggy. With power from my Novak Havoc Pro Sc and 4.5 Ballistic motor I had no problems taking those jumps and putting down fast laps for the win. I had not run my SC in a while and it sure was fun to run on a big track like Rev.

OFNA Dirt Oval takes 1,2,3 - 1/8/11 by davegm
Reported by Robin Nelson - January 8, 2011, better known as the weekend snow was dumped on the South, The Nitro Barn in Cherryville, NC sponsored The 3rd Annual Ice Breaker race. I showed up as one of 70 racers ready to race at the heated indoor dirt oval track. I was prepared to race in Open Late Model, but no one else showed up for this class. I borrowed an engine from Randy Delapp so that I could enter the Limited Late Model class. After tuning the engine, I TQ’d the class and started out running great in the main. Unfortunately, in the middle of the A Main, I hit lapped traffic and got in a tangle. My car didn’t make out so well and my day ended early. The racing was great any way after the Christmas and New Year hiatus. The top three in Limited Late Model is as follows:
