Tobias Hepp confirmed at Serpent

Tobias Hepp confirmed at Serpent

Following a deal with Shepherd to supply him with their own brand tires, MLC fuel and Novarossi engines, Tobias Hepp has also been confirmed with Serpent for 2010. The Serpent 966 is very much to Tobias’ liking and he expects to do very well in the Germans Nationals and this year’s European Championship in Italy. The co-operation with Michael Salven is working really well at races and together with the help of his dad/mechanic Rudiger Hepp it has enabled Tobais to continue to get faster. Tobias will also race a number of 1/10th races with the Serpent 733 in 2010.

RC4WD Boyer truggy crawler

RC4WD Boyer truggy crawler

The Boyer Truggy from RC4WD is extremely versatile so you can set it up any way you like. Different bodies, different size/length shocks, adjustable wheelbase, adjustable frame mounted servo, adjustable rock sliders and adjustable front brush guard. Plus it has pre-drilled holes for mounting the winch on the bumper. The rock sliders are threaded so they can slide in and out to adjust to the width of the body. They are also offset so when you switch them side to side then that allows you to run the regular cab bodies like the Hilux. When you switch them side to side the rock sliders will sit further back on the chassis.

Dreschers wins BRCA National warm-up event

The annual BRCA National Warm Up event took place at Frankley over the weekend and saw Craig Drescher stake his intentions for the up up coming season. The weather turned out to be dry which looked pretty unlikely in the week up to the race, but dry it was. In qualifying the Associated RC8B’s of Craig Drescher and Neil Cragg were on fire, taking all the round wins between them and putting Neil Cragg on pole position. Neil & Craig were using the new ST version of the Reedy engine and Reedy 2039 pipe set which are both due to be released soon. Neil was also the only driver able to get through for the sacred 9 lap run, which on this largely unchanged track layout, only Neil and Darren Bloomfield have ever achieved.

Losi Racing Winter series Rd1 double for Drake

Losi Racing Winter series Rd1 double for Drake

Last weekend the first round of the Team Losi Racing Winter Series took place at Revelation Raceway. Adam Drake put in great runs in both rounds of qualifying and started on pole in buggy and truck. The buggy final was all Drake. Cody King moved into second at the start of the buggy final, but wasn’t able to match the pace of The Drake and eventually had a flameout. This opened the door for Matt Schreffler who finished in the runner up spot, 1 lap behind race winner Adam. The truck final was a great race with Adam and Matt battling most of the final with Adam able to take home the victory followed by Matt.
