Belgian SCT Cup Rd7 – Report

Tacoma R/C Raceway hosted the annual Gold Cup event to kick off the fall/winter racing season and this year’s special guest was none other than former National Champion and previous Reedy Race Champion, Dustin Evans. When the JConcepts tour came into town last spring, it wasn’t sure if the track ever see any other big names come back. For those who don’t know, racing at TRCR isn’’t easy as the local fast guys are extremely fast. Countless hours of practice results in critical knowledge of the dirt, car setup, and layout of this awesome racing facility.

Traxxas Slash Pro 2 OBA 2WD SC truck

Traxxas Slash Pro 2 OBA 2WD SC truck

Traxxas amps up the realism of their popular Slash 2WD short course truck by introducing the OBA on-board audio system. Using Traxxas’ award-winning Slash 2WD with composite tub chassis, long-travel suspension and brushless-ready drivetrain the OBA version includes a sound unit that uses sound that has been sampled from Traxxas’ team trucks, including the Traxxas Pro 4 short course truck driven by Mike Jenkins. Featuring an on/off button and volume controls, the system offers adjustable settings. Runtime is not compromised since the system uses a minimal amount of power from the battery. The sounds are intuitive and respond to the throttle input from the transmitter. If the truck is stopped for more than 10 seconds the engine will shut off – to rev it up again just tab the throttle. The rocker switch on the included 3-channel transmitter is used to shift to “neutral”. The truck is available as Mike Jenkins Edition #47 & #25, Traxxas Blue Racing Edition, or Traxxas White Racing Edition.
