Tekin goes 1-2 at the Winter Nitro Point Series @ The Fear Farm!

New Tekin team addition Casey Peck would Tq and win Rd1 with Tekin teammate Ryan Lutz taking the 3 final rounds with Tq and wins with Peck taking 2nd in the remaining 3 rounds.

Peck recaps:

"Ryan Lutz ended up taking the overall for the series with me in second. It was a Tekin 1-2 for the overall series finish. The even better news is that the class grew bigger and bigger each round and for the most the most part (probably 80%) Tekin was the system of choice. Ryan took the time to set up a bunch of new racers systems (mine included) to get them dialed in."

Both drivers chose the Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and T8 Gen2 line of motors tuned with the Tekin Hotwire!

Tekin and Henn take RD 1 of the RC Pro Series!

Round 1 kicked off at Ultimate RC in Alvin, Texas. Mother Nature would make an appearance with an Ice storm blowing in cancelling Friday practice. 4 hours of practice would be held on Saturday.

Saturday practice was "wet" causing cars to pick up weight, nearly 3 lbs at times!  However come qualifying time the track would dry up enough to race on.  Due to the practice the program was cut short to 2 qualifiers which allowed Tekin powered Brian "Smiley" Henn to Tq 4wd SC and take 2nd in Pro 1/8 E Buggy.

Back on schedule had mains running on Sunday. The track was nice and dry but a little rough due to the weather. First up was 1/8 Pro E buggy where Henn would take A1 battling it out with Jake Dillinger. A2 was much of the same the two battling for the lead however Dillinger would take A2. Due to the reduced schedule only two A's were ran with the tie breaker coming down to average times, giving Henn the win! Brian chose the Tekin Rx8 Gen2 and Gen2 T8 1900kv to power his HotBodies D8-12e buggy.
In Pro 4 SC it was the "Smiley Henn" show with Brian taking both A1 and A2 in dominating fashion.
Brian chose the Tekin Rx8 Gen2 and Pro4 HD motor for his TLR SCTe 2.0.

Tekin cleans up at the Power Stroke Winter Shootout!

The Power Stroke Winter Shootout was held at Maximus RC Raceway. The layout for the event was technical and with the recent improvements to the track the grip was higher than normal which would make for tight racing all around. Over 140+ entries was a great turn out even in the cool conditions.

John Cravotta would would battle it out in the Pro2 SC class with his Tekin RSX Gen2 8.5 powered X-Factory truck being the only driver clearing the large double double on the track every lap to take the overall win!

Tekin powered Scott Furtado would Tq and take the overall win in the 1/8 E-buggy class running the Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and T8 Gen2 1900 motor. Scott would also finish 2nd in 4wd Mod Buggy with his Tekin RSX Gen2 6.5 powered TLR 22-4 having only the weekend to get the car dialed in!
