Ty Tessmann's Race Report: This past weekend we attended the ROAR 1/8 Fuel Offroad Nationals held at the beautiful Silver Dollar Rc Raceway in Chico, California. Kevin Jelich and his crew did a great job on the track, it held up really well the whole weekend and stayed very consistent. Since I had been to this track for the warmup race a few weeks earlier, I had a base setup to start with and had some idea of what I would be running on. During...Continue Reading

Ronnefalk and the D413 2nd at Swedish Electric Nationals

News Article Image 2015062303

It was time for the Swedish Nationals in 1/10 last weekend. It was held at a 1/8 scale track where we had our first round of the Swedish Cup a few weeks ago. The track is a little too big for 1/10 scale but it was okay anyway, just a little hard to see your car at a few places. Having had my graduation from school on Friday, I missed the open practice. However I am quite familiar to the track so I thought that it should be fine after a few laps...Continue Reading

News Article Image 2015062301

David's Race Report:  Time for the Euro Warm-up in 1/10 Buggy at the beautiful Robin Hood Raceway in England. Weather forecast looked a bit unstable before the weekend, but it wouldn’t affect the race too much in the end. On Friday we had practice for both classes, 6 rounds each class so we had a lot of track time to find a good setup for the pretty tricky conditions on the track.  It could go from being fairly good grip to very...Continue Reading

Ronnefalk and the D815 Dominate First Round of Swedish Nationals

News Article Image 2015061801

It was time for the first outdoor race in Sweden and it was the first round of the Swedish Cup. The track is not that far away from my home so I went there to practice last weekend. It was very cold then but my car was on rails! I never felt this comfortable with the car ever, and it was super fast. It is a nice track with a mix of materials, bricks, astroturf, dirt, wood etc. The layout of the track is fun and pretty tricky at some spots. We...Continue Reading
