Jeppe Svendsen wins at DRCMU Rd4

The fourth round of the Danish DRCMU series was hosted by the Ti-Mo club in Tinglev with 73 drivers from Denmark and Germany in attendance. The 17.5T blinky class attracted a good turnout of drivers and young Jeppe Svendsen took the TQ after the qualifiers but come the finals he started to become nervous and so the first two mains did not went perfect for the Xray driver. In the final and decisive A-main though he got everything together to take the win and with it the overall victory in front of his team mates Bjarke Nyskov and Jens Otto Frederiksen.

WRC 1/8th on-road quick release wheel mounts

WRC 1/8th on-road quick release wheel mounts

Italian company WRC introduce new quick release wheel mounts for 1/8th on-road cars. The design minimises possible imbalance as associated with conventional lever-type mounts as the WRC system uses a simple aluminium button that sits in-line with the wheel axle when to remove or mount the wheel and once the rim is in place the red alloy disc is pushed to the outside to lock the wheel in place. The system works with all rims brands and is used on WRC’s recently introduced GTX 1/8th on-road car.

Mike Garrison wins at 2015 On The Rug race

Mike Garrison wins at 2015 On The Rug race

The 2015 Race On The Rug event hosted by the RC Complex in Bolivar, Missouri. The facility recently decided to remove their dirt offroad track, and replace it with a European style carpet offroad track. Winter weather and icy roads unfortunately struck the area leading up to the race. The Mod 4WD Buggy class was a bit light in attendance, but still offered some close racing and blistering fast speeds for the spectators to enjoy. Mike Garrison managed to capture TQ in qualifying with the only 18-lap run in the class. As the A-Final got underway, it was a back and forth battle in the early laps between Garrison and Dave Ferrell. After a slight mistake by Ferrell following close in 2nd, Garrison was able to stretch out his lead and cruise to victory.
