Tekin powered Matt Olson Cleans up at the Jconcepts Clash!

Last weekend the 6th Annual JConcepts Clash  race was held at the Flowood Indoor RC Park. Racers from all over the country converged to the event for some great racing. Tekin powered Matt Olsom would put his MIP Pro 4 SC into the Tq position and would knock out the wins in quick fashion taking both A1 and A2 in convincing fashion.

"I had a great weekend at the Jconcepts Clash with my Tekin Rx8 Pro 4 / MIP Pro4mance packed Losi SCTE and AE SC10 Pro 2. Both of my cars were powered by Tekin and worked flawlessly all weekend. I had plenty of all around power and a frightening amount of bottom end that really gave me the edge shooting from corner to corner. Thanks again for the continued support and great products. " Matt Olson

Jubal Dike takes a win at the CCEOF Series...

The 3rd round of the Circle City Electric Off-Road Series took place Sunday, September 23 at E Squared Raceway in Avon, IN. This race marked the halfway point in the 6 round, 3 track series. There were 60+ entries in several different classes.

The Pro2 class was one of the largest classes, going back to a C main. Jubal Dike was able to sweep qualifying with his Tekin powered FT SC10 and hold the overall TQ by several seconds. At the start of the main Jubal was able to put in clean laps, which was very difficult with the track conditions. He was able to slowly pull away in the 8 min main, only being marshaled once, and that was on the last lap when he had the race well in hand. Jubal was able to lap all the way up to second place, and only being 5 seconds from him at the end of the race. The truck was absolutely on rails with plenty of power with a Tekin RS and Gen 2 8.5.

Tekin powered Mark Unrath wins Rd5 of the Region 2 Points Series

This past weekend was the final round (5) of the ROAR Region 2 Mid-Atlantic Off-road Point Series.  The race was located at LCRC Raceway in PA home of the ROAR 8th Scale Nationals.  We had 105+ entries for this race.  ROAR put on a great event and hosted lunch for everyone.  This was my first time racing at LCRC and the facility was awesome.

Mark managed to qualify well after 3 rounds putting his Tekin powered Mugen Eco buggy 3rd and his Tekin powered Mugen E truggy 2nd overall. 

Mains were underway and Mark would battle it out with Alex Miller swapping positions during A1. Mark would take P2 in A1. A2 Mark would get a great start and would be on the heels of Alex right away. Alex would suffer from a mechanical allowing Mark to walk away with A2 giving him the overall win! This would give Mark the 2nd Overall for the points series! Mark used a Tekin Rx8 and T8 2050 to power his Mugen buggy.

E truggy would Mark would battle with Kash for the majority of the A1. The two would battle the entire racing with Mark taking down P2 for A1. In A2 Mark would bobble in the whoops and have to push hard to catch back up to the leader. Lapped traffic would slow the leader a bit helping Marks cause and with 2 laps left Mark would get by for the win! Mark chose the Tekin Rx8 and T8 2000kv for his Mugen E Truggy. This would give Mark 2nd overall at the event.
