Kyle Rhodes takes 2wd at Connecticut State Champs

Kyle Rhodes takes 2wd at Connecticut State Champs

This past Sunday the Connecticut State Championships were held at Wolcott Hobby and Raceway in Waterbury, Connecticut and Kyle Rhodes wrote this report. ‘The race had 120 entries with drivers from multiple states being present. I competed in 2wd Modified buggy and 4wd Modified Buggy. Fellow Kyosho driver Jimmy James Rivera was also in attendance competing in 2wd Modified Buggy and 1/8th Electric Buggy. Jimmy and myself practiced Thursday before the event and were able to get a good base setup for our Kyosho RB6 rear motor cars for the race.

The format for the event was two six minute qualifiers and a six minute main for each class. In 2wd mod buggy I was able to put together two good runs with my first being faster giving me the TQ over Team Associated driver Alex¬† Kosciuszek. Jimmy James put his car fifth on the grid for the A main as well. When the tone went off I got a good jump but was quickly pressured by Alex for the lead. Alex and I broke away from the rest of the field and were bumper to bumper until the four minute mark when we both made a mistake as we went through lap traffic. I got through it cleaner and had a four second lead over Alex. At the four and a half minute mark Alex made a mistake and end up breaking a rear arm. For the remainder of the race I stretched out my lead and when the tone went of off I took the win followed by Chuckie Presinzano driving and Associated B4.2 and Jimmy James took third rounding out the podium with his Kyosho RB6.’
