All change for EOS Round 2 in Berlin

All change for EOS Round 2 in Berlin

It is all change for this weekend’s (Jan 30 – Feb 1) second round of the Euro Offroad Series as the championship returns to Berlin for a second year. Following a successful first visit to the German capital city last year, the first change is the venue with the race moving to a larger, more modern, building to better cater for the 200 plus entries. Having partnered up with Schumacher as official tyre supplier for Season #4, which got underway in Poland last October, another change for Round 2 is the switch over to pre-glued handout tyres for everyone. The third change comes in the form of the track action after the 2015 brought about one of the biggest team driver line up changes in years.

Spektrum S6270 low profile HV race servo

Spektrum S6270 low profile HV race servo

Spektrum have introduced their new S6270 low profile HV race surface servo which has been designed for customers who are racing the 22 v2.0 or similar mid-motor mount 1/10 buggies and trucks that require a low profile servo. Because of the mid mount setup, not much space is available for the servo and a low profile servo works best. Being a HV (High Voltage) servo the S6270 can take input voltage from 6V to 8.4V with speed performance ranging from .07 sec. to a lightning fast .05 sec. Add its waterproof case, tight deadband, and coreless motor and robust metal gear train and this servo is hard to beat.

Markus Hellquist wins South Swedish Indoor Cup Rd4

Markus Hellquist wins South Swedish Indoor Cup Rd4

The 4th round of the South Swedish Indoor Cup for electric touring cars was held in Växjö on a small to medium sized, quite technical track with yet a good flow. In both practice rounds Magnus Vässmar ended up first, with Markus Hellquist just 0.333 seconds behind in the second round. In the first qualifier Markus Hellquist set the pace, beating Magnus Vässmar’s practice pace by 14/1000nd of a second. Magnus Vässmar was 2nd in the first round a few seconds behind and Daniel Carlsson rounded out the top 3. The track then became slightly slower for each of the following rounds, and no one was able to challenge the top times in round 2 and 3. This meant Markus would take the TQ in front of Magnus.
