2018 DNC U4RC Winter Nationals are finally in the books.
It was a long day, to a long year, with many stumbling blocks but the UCFAB PRT HD FIS has finally gotten the recognition it deserves.
Earlier in the day, the Losi Rock Rey was struggling a bit with adjusting to the fresh, dry track. Making top position in the B main, Chris Pickering, Perry Maified and I bumped up to the 2.2 Indy A main. I ended up doing internal damage of the "clicking" variety, limiting my speed and making the car very hard to drive. Not looking forward to that rebuild!
The Tekno based "Red Demon" made a great showing in an all Tekno A main of 2.2 Unlimited against the very advantageous DB48 style setup but I won't say much more than, WOW, that extra 2" of wheelbase is fast in the rocks!!!
(as I predicted)
2.2 Trophy Indy was the the other great show to watch and boy, did Michael Pham and I put on a show! It had nothing to do with Tekno/Axial, or RCFAB/UCFAB, or Cali/AZ... it was two guys, who were straight putting on a clinic with some great back and forth, wheel to wheel, just plain awesome racing.
With so many people to thank for the ability to do this... some outstanding, above and beyond names;
-Gentry McWherter -Kerri Groth -Scott Byrne
-@hobbywing -@tekinracing -@axialracing -@rcamazza -@losi.rc and @teamlosiracing -@futabarc
So many others are worthy of note along the way, big or small, thank you, thank you all!
