This past weekend at the JBRL at Controlled Chaos Raceway, Tekin team drivers Ryan Dunford and Doug "Casper" Nielsen had a great time and great racing at this fantastic facility.  The track was a hard packed surface with tons of traction so the Tekin powered TLR vehicles went mid motor.

In the Pro 2 Class, Ryan had some competition from a couple other fast guys and took the TQ and win running his Tekin RS Pro and Redline Gen 2 6.5T powered 22 SCT in mid motor configuration. Tekin teammate Doug "Casper" Nielsen would join Dunford taking 2nd for the round. Doug was also using a Tekin RS Gen2 and Redline Gen2 8.5 motor in his TLR 22SCT.

David Jenson would take the win using a Tekin Rx8 esc. Tekin team driver Casper would take a 2nd for RD4 in the Pro4 class running a Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and Pro4 HD joined by Ryan in 3rd with his Tekin RX8 Gen 2 esc and Tekin Pro4 4600 powered TLR SCTE 2.0

Under the Hood with Tekin's Tj Bradley

When it comes to On-road racing there are very few veteran racers still at the top of their game. Tj is one of the easiest guys to talk to in the pits, he's consistently fast, has well setup cars, and he's always in the hunt for the win. Whether it's carpet or pavement Tj has put his car on the box frequently. Let's take a look "Under the Hood" of his ROAR National Championship winning ride.

Inside Tj's Corally HMX is a Tekin RS Gen2 esc paired with a Tekin Gen2 Redline motor. Power is supplied by a RC King battery. Steering and radio equipment is by Futaba.

If you look at the layout Tj chooses for his electronics you can see he's focused on efficiency. His transponder is right up front in the car ahead of the shock tower but behind the bumper enough to protect it. In a drag race to the line, these few inches can be the difference between 1st and 2nd. Directly behind the RS Gen2 is a motor fan tucked nicely between the two components for maximum effectiveness.

So if you're attending one of the larger events in Tj's home state of Florida, Nationals or the IIC race in Vegas and you see the fastest guy in the paddock with a beard, make sure you say "hi" to Tekin powered Tj Bradley!

Hosted at Coyote Hobbies the 3rd Annual Mid-Summer Shootout wrapped up over the weekend. The house was full and the racing was close.

Tekin powered Chris Blais would take the overall Tq over his brother Nick. Going into the A the tension was pretty thick while the drivers waiting for the "go" tone. Chris would run out front until a minor mistake would let Nick take the lead. Chris would make a diving pass to the inside on the 2nd to last turn, the two would make contact with Nick getting the best out of it taking the win. Both drivers chose the Tekin Rx8 and T8 motor to power them to the podium.

The 4wd SC would be up last but would have some of the tightest racing of the weekend! Chris Blais would put his Tekin powered Tekno SC in the Tq spot over his brother Nick and local fast guy Rudy Rico. The 3 would battle it out for the entire main. Nick would attempt a bold move near the end but would bobble giving up 2nd place Rico. The 3 would finish up with Chris 1st, Rico 2nd, and Nick 3rd. Chris and Nick both chose the Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and Pro 4 HD motor.
