Rebellion-RC WTC Mount for X1

More from RC-Carbonstore’s Rebellion-RC brand for the Xray X1 formula chassis is this WTC Mount. This new upgrade allows the user to mount the rear wing in front of the holder, giving the possibility to set the wing much further forward which in turn leads to more front traction while retaining rear stability. The mount also gives you the option to fix the rear wing directly to the chassis, which leads to much more rear grip and better handling due to the reduction in vibrations from the wing transferred to the rear pod.

Coelho wins 4WD at EOS Slovakia

Bruno Coelho has won 4WD at the fourth round of the Euro Offroad Series in Slovakia.  Having concluded the first half of the season last month in Daun with the first win of his campaign, the Xray driver today opened the second half of the season with victory when he wrapped things up in A2.  Similar to A1, Coelho’s only challenger would be Michal Orlowski but this time the Schumacher driver came undone on his own when he got it wrong at the table top on lap 3.  Dropping down the order, he would eventually pull off as team-mate Joern Neumann took advantage of other’s mistakes to finish second, 6-seconds down on Coelho.  With the prospect of a repeat of the double win he took at the Hudy Arena last year gone, Michal would manage to win A3 which would with his P4 from A1 at least see the reigning champion make the podium in 3rd place.  Having to defend greatly finishing A3 in second just ahead of Joona Haatanen and Jörn Neumann, it would be Martin Bayer who would claim the second step on the podium for an Xray 1-2.  Neumann ended the event in 4th position ahead of Haatanen and with Lee Martin completing the Top 6.

Coelho wins A1 easily after early touch with Orlowski

Bruno Coelho took an easy and comfortable win in the opening A-Main of 4WD at EOS Slovakia, the Xray driver leading his team-mate Martin Bayer, Lee Martin and Michal Orlowski.  Starting from the TQ, the first lap saw a bobble from Coelho who went wide as he got up on two wheels allowing Orlowski to the front but it was short lived. Under pressure from Coelho, the Schumacher driver make a number errors leading to him touching the piping, and trying to get back on to the racing line there was contact with the Pole fairing off worst as his car flipped and needed to be marshalled.  From there, already with gap over the chasing pack, Coelho opened up the lead lap after lap ahead of Daniel Kobbevik until the Norwegian made a mistake with just 3-laps to go.  This allowed Bayer back up to second but he had Martin and a recovering Orlowski right behind.  Orlowski got by Martin but handed it back again with a mistake on the final jump as he attempted a final pass to get by Bayer.
