Amezcua wins Pro Electric at Silver State

Amezcua wins Pro Electric at Silver State

Tekno RC are reporting that their chassis conversions scored another win in the Pro Electric 1/8th class. This time it was at the Silver State Challenge, where Travis Amezcua put in another great run with his Tekno equipped Mugen MBX6 buggy. Starting 3rd on the grid, he followed TQ Josh Wheeler closely all race. One mistake by Josh in the treacherous whoops section gave Travis a pass opportunity, once passed he held on and brought home the win in the 10 minute main event to become the Silver State Challenge Pro Electric 1/8th Champ. Also, in the Open Buggy class, Pres Ilog brought home the win in his Hot Bodies D8 buggy. Pres was rocking the Tekno RC LCG chassis and front and rear Tekno RC CNC shock towers.  He almost completed the buggy/truggy sweep, but got caught for 2nd in Open Truggy.
