Hyper 10SC and Malott win back JCP Raceway - 1/25/12 by DJ

Reported by Michael Malott - This weekend I went to a local club race to get some track time and put in some laps. I decided to just run my Pro 4 SC and try some things out on it to see how I liked the changes.
 
Pro 4 SC : I put in a lot of laps with the truck this weekend and tried a lot of different things. I liked the changes I made but I kept finding myself going back to my original setup and tire combination. We had a pretty good turnout for a club race and they cut it down to 2 qualifiers. I made changes in both of the qualifiers and I could not get a clean run in to save myself and I ended up qualifying 2nd for the night. I was happy with that knowing I was trying different things and trying to get the truck better. In between the last qual and the main I made some more changes and put the truck back to what I had been running and went back to the tires that have been working for me and my truck was on rails. In the main I got off to a great start and was able to get by the leader on the first lap. I was able to get away a little bit at the start and just kept charging and putting in solid fast laps. I went on to take the win and run the only 29 lap race of the class to set a new track record for the current layout. I had a really solid race day and was able to get in a lot of good practice and race laps. I am really happy with my truck and my setup. I look forward to running this class a lot the rest of the winter and over the summer. Pro 4 will be one of the classes I put a lot of focus into at the big races and locally. It is becoming one of the larger classes in our area and I hope to be able to stay up front.

Chad wins with his Nexx10sc 4x4 - 1/13/12 by davegm
Reported by Chad Bradley - The night was cold, little breezy and track conditions a little loose, however a new layout was put in place a few days prior. In the Pro4 SC class, Chad Bradley driving the OFNA Nexx10SC set the time in round 1 of qualifying, Mike Heiman and Mark Helms rounded out the top 3 for the 8 minute main event. A reverse grid order was set for the main meaning the fastest times were put towards the back of the field for the start. After a few laps Bradley settled in the lead and the win, Mike Heiman 2nd and Mark Helms 3rd.

James and Marc go 1-2 with X3's at Revelation Raceway 1/7/12 by DJ
Reported by Dj Sandate - Saturday club racing was at Revelation Raceway and James,Marc and myself wanted to get in some racing action on the fresh new layout. All three of us were running in different classes James in sportsman, Marc in Amatuer and myself (Dj) in expert. James managed to get the Tq in his class in the last round running 10 sec. ahead of the P2 spot, so the race would be all his if he got clear of the start which he did. The first corner was total mayhem as James was free and clear right from the startand managed a sizable lead within the first couple of laps, then it was on cruise control as he continued with his X3 lapping the other racers and taking the win. It was only his 2nd time out racing his new X3 Sabre and got a win, batting .500.

Marc also managed a great finish for the Amatuer class as he started 3rd for the main, same thing would happen at the start of the race mayhem into the first corner even the Tq got tangled up with the 2nd starter but opened the gates for Marc to drive through and come out with the lead after a couple of corners. His lead would continue for most of the race until some traffic got him really tied up and turned over, that allowed for 2nd to come on strong and close the gap on Marc. He pushed his X3 hard trying to put some distance from 2nd but yet again another back marker tossed him upside-down and that allowed 2nd to take the lead with just a few minutes left, Marc finished the race in 2nd well ahead of 3rd and making the strong finish once again. Two 2nd place finish in the past couple of weeks, soon the 1st position will be yours.


I myself had a couple of mishaps during the race first a flameout right at the start and I'm in last place, but charged hard back to 3rd 5 minutes into the race and was trying to push harder to see if I can make it back to 2nd but that cost me as I railed a pipe hard into a S-section snapping my rear hub, oh well somebody has to durable test the X3 and believe me it was one hard hit.

X3 Sabre's are giving James and Marc what they need to finish up front and win. 

Chad wins with his Nexx10sc 4x4 - 1/6/12 by davegm
Reported by Chad Bradley - Hot Rod Hobbies had their monthly Driver Appreciation Night and had over 100 entries for the night. This was one of the last races on the Reedy Truck Race layout, couldn't of come quick enough cause the track is getting rough. In the Pro 4 SC class Chad Bradley driving the OFNA Nexx10SC failed to finish the first round of qualifying after forgetting a screw that holds the outer rear hing pin in place. Chad had to start dead last in the main event, however after getting around the field quickly in the beginning of the main he quickly made his way to the top positions. Chad swapped leads during the first half of the run, but settled down and went on to take the win with the Nexx10SC, Radcliff Brill finished second and Mike Heiman third.

Malott brings home some CASH at JCP Raceway - 1/1/12 by DJ
Reported by Michael Malott: The new JCP Indoor track in Indianapolis, IN played host the the new years cash race. It was the biggest turnout of the year so far and the competition was stacked in all of the classes. I had been sick for the past week so I decided to only run a couple of classes and run my Hyper Sc and have the chance to bring home some money.  
 
Pro 4 4x4 SC - In the Pro 4 class the competition was once again really solid and fast. I had my Hyper 10sc ready to go. In practice I made a couple changes and glued up a new set of AKA rebars and the truck was on rails. In the 1st qual the traffic was horrible and everyone was trying to race like it was the main and all the money was on the line. I got a little frustrated and just decided to pull off and not take any chances or break anything. In the 2nd qual I got off to a good start and everyone had finally settled down. I was out front on a blistering pace having a really good run. I ended up bumping the TQ pace up a full lap and setting overall TQ for the first 2 rounds. In the 3rd round they did a re-sort and the a main qual was really good. I was once again out front setting a very fast pace and was able to bump my TQ time up a few more seconds and take the overall TQ for the day. I was ready to go for the main and I knew I had the speed to stay up front I just needed to be consistent. The main started and I jumped out to and early lead right from the start. The 2nd and 3rd guys were battling and it allowed me to pull away and build a comfortable lead. I was out front and starting to pull away when I cased the triple jump and the truck flew off the track. I dropped about 8 seconds in that 1 lap and allowed 2nd to close the gap. We had a good little battle going for a few laps and he made a mistake and allowed me to get away again. With about 2 minutes to go I had a real comfortable lead when I started hearing a gear noise. I slowed down and started rolling all the jumps because I wasn't sure what the noise was. I had a big enough lead I was able to just cruise in the last 2 minutes. After the tone had sounded I was out on my last lap I decided to jump the finish triple one last time and as I rolled across the line the truck lost all drive. Come to find out a motor screw had backed off and allowed the motor to back off and when I jumped the last triple it backed out all the way and pulled away from the spur.  I was lucky to hold on to the win and take home the cash.
DJ gets X3 Sabre win at Revelation Raceway - 12/28/11 by DJ

Reported by Dave Starks - Yesterday after work I decided to make it on out to Revelation Raceway to go race and hang out with the buddies. I just made it when the first race started to do my turn marshal duties, then it was on to getting the car ready to race. My X3 Sabre was ready and  strapped with Proline Revolver 2.0's and was being pushed by my freshly tuned JL .21 Pro engine. The first round was pretty good being that my engine was a little on the rich side for night racing but managed killer lap times as I TQ'd the first round. The second round was even more consistant as I leaned the JL engine just a tad to get more power and run time from my Sidewinder Strike Team Fuel and put down another TQ run for that round also, now it was time to get that win. A 15min. race in the cold was set and my knuckles were starting to feel it and my Teamate/Pitman Bill Mc Cuene was getting me ready to start the race, I got off the line clean into the turn and off the first jump while 2nd got away clean also but the rest got tied up so for the first 5 minutes it was me and Nick Hernandez battling it out, I stuck to my pace even though Nick and I swapped a couple of times for the lead but in the end I managed to get away while Nick suffered a problem and was out. But his brother Ryan was now in second trying to charge but was 10 seconds away, I just kept it between the lines till the end for the win. The Hong Nor X3 is definitely going to be a contender, with my JL engine, Sidewinder fuel and 2047 pipe it sure was fast.

Malott takes another win with the Hyper SC - 12/11/11 by DJ
Reported by Michael Malott - JCP Indoor Indianapolis, IN: I decided to once again run 2 classes over the weekend at out local indoor track. I stuck with the Mod Buggy class and the Pro 4 class. 
 
Pro 4 : I have been running my pro 4 alot lately and I was feeling very comfortable with the setup so I only ran a few packs in practice to make sure everything was good and ready to go. When the quals started I left off where I had been the past few weeks and set a blistering time to take the TQ for round 1. In the second round I made a tire change just to see if they would give me an better results. The tires were a little loose but the track still had good traction so I was able to take another TQ for the round. In the 3rd round I went back to my AKA SS Rebars and they were the tire to be on. I had a little bad luck in the 3rd round breaking a steering arm trying to jump through a rhythm section that I knew better to try. I still had the fast time of the day from round 1 so I was able to hold onto the TQ spot. In the main I got off to a great start and was able to start to pull away from the field. I ran a smooth clean race and never had to me marshaled once during the race and was able to take the win and put almost 3 laps on the field in the 10 minute main.

Michael Malott wins at JCP Raceway - 11/20/11 by DJ
Reported by Michael Malott - This weekend I went back to the new local track in Indianapolis. I spent most of the week getting a new 4wd SC ready to go. I got it all together late Saturday and was ready to hit the track on Sunday.
 
Pro 4wd SC : I spent most of the day working on my Pro 4 to try and get it tuned in for the track. I ran about 4 packs in practice and got the truck working really good. All of the quals went really well and my truck was on rails for all 3 of the qualifiers. I won all 3 quals to take the TQ spot and on the pole for the main. I was the only Pro 4 to turn 24 laps and was on a 25 run late in 2 of the quals but just couldn't keep it together to get that 25 lap run. The main went really good. I ran a few laps in practice and I knew the truck was still good but the track had changed a little and it wasn't as good as it had been through the quals. I got out to a good start and just ran a smart race and played it safe. I ran the first couple minutes hard to build a lead and once I got out to a comfortable lead I just turned it back and ran a safe and consistent race to take the win. My Hyper 10sc with AKA tires was really good all day. The changes I made the truck and my tires throughout the day made the truck better each race. My Tekin RX8 and new Pro 4 4000kv was smooth as butter and gave me all the power I needed to be out front all day.
Jubal rocks the Hyper 9 for the win at JCP Raceway - 11/12/11 by DJ
Reported by Jubal Dike - JCP/RC opened its doors for its first electric race of the season on Sunday! The new facility is top notch with a phenomenal track that caters to 1/10 and 1/8th scales. They race nitro and electric on Saturdays and electric only on Sundays. 44 entries came out on this opening day to see who could take the first wins at the new track!

1/8 Ebuggy - I qualified second overall for the day with my Tekin RX8/T8 powered Hyper 9e to Dave Taylor running a Tekin powered Mugen ECO. We were the only two to turn 25 lap runs for the day as well.  
At the tone for the main, Taylor got upside down on the technical track letting me get by clean for the lead and causing a yard sale allowing me to jump out to a big lead. At that point I just needed to run clean, safe laps and make the field push to catch me. I lead from start to finish in the 10 min main taking the first 1/8 scale electric buggy win for the season for electric day!!

Chad wins with his Nexx10sc 4x4 - 10/29/11 by davegm
Reported by Chad Bradley -The 2011 JBRL Electric Series Finals came to an end Saturday at Hot Rod Hobbies, the last round of the 8 race series. The 2011 overall series Champion for the Pro 4 class is Aaron lane driving the Losi. The 2010 Pro 4 overall  winner Chad Bradley driving the OFNA HongNor Nexx10SC was on hand for the final round at his home track. Chad didn't take part for most of the 2011 series, having only attended 2 previous rounds. Round one of qualifying saw a few of the series top runners fail to finish their first round and Chad set the time for round one a lap and 4 seconds ahead of the the next best time. Round two Losi's Aaron lane and AE's Chris Jarosz bettered their round one times putting them in the second and third starting positions for the main event. Chad also bettered his round one time by only a couple of tenths and took the top qualifying time by 10 seconds. Chad said he got the Nexx10 SC truck working very good on high traction tracks lately, he said the last few years the truck has been more than perfect on normal club race conditions where track surfaces are normally looser and wet. The 6 minute Pro 4 main event went pretty much how qualifying went, Chad was able to get out in front early on and put down a near flawless run. Chad took the win with the Nexx10SC, Ryan Dunford with the losi, Chris Jarosz third with the AE.

Nexx 10sc win at JCP Raceway - 10/15/11 by DJ

Reported by Jubal Dike - JCP held its final 2011 outdoor race of the season on Saturday, also known as "The Great Pumpkin Race". This has become an annual trophy race to close out the season and is always filled with great times with good friends and awesome racing and not to mention GREAT food!!!!

PRO 4: My first two qualifiers left little to be desired although I was in the "A" qual after the resort out of the 23 trucks entered. This was the largest class of the event. I however felt I had something to prove to myself and my competitors going into the 3rd and final round. The track was very loose and definitely slower than the first rounds but I managed to win my heat along with setting my fast run for the day. This left me starting 5th in the A. 

I decided I was going to make a hard push to the front early so the leaders didn't get away early. This played out well for me, after the second lap I had takin the lead and started stretching the gap. I would continue on uncontested and lapping the entire 12 truck field, except 2nd and 3rd which were 9 and 20 seconds back!

My Tekin RX8/Pro4 powered OFNA Nexx 10SC was a rocket ship and was on rails! As always I have to thank OFNA, Tekin, Avid, BCE and Fastlane Graphix for their awesome support and products! They help me go fast and look good every week!

Nexx 10 SC's take 1 & 2 at JCP Racway - 10/8/11 by DJ

Reported by Jubal Dike - Saturday was the warm up to the Great Pumpkin Race to be held 10/15/11. It was an absolutely fabulous day and evening to be at the race track!

The only class I entered was Pro4 SC. The first qualifier I set the TQ at 17 7:13. I knew I had left plenty on the track because of a few mistakes.

The second qualifier I went out and just flat out over drove the truck. It was on rails but I just pushed entirely too hard and made too many mistakes again. New TQ was set at 17 7:10 by Chuck Hayse driving a Losi.

As usual with JCP the third qualifier was when the track was at it's best and I was determined to put the run in I expected. Long story short, my Nexx 10sc was on point. At 6 mins in I was on what I believe to be a new track record pace of 18 7:20. To my knowledge there has never been 18 laps turned on that particular layout. With less than 30 secs to go a combination of lappers and myself spoiled my run with a broken truck. Epic Fail

Well after I got the truck fixed it was main time. I was confident in my Tekin Pro4 powered Nexx 10 as long as I drove smart. That's exactly what I done. Early into the 10 min main there were several lead changes between myself, and a few others. After a few laps we settled in and my Ofna teammate, Brian Bourland, had the lead. I worked my way up to his bumper and when he opened the door I slid by for the lead. This is the way it would stay. Two Ofna Nexx 10's with Tekin horsepower and AKA rubber going 1-2!

Reported by Chad Bradley - Tuesday Night Nationals at Hot Rod Hobbies in Santa Clarita Ca. A full house of racers were on hand as well as a full heat and half in the Pro 4 SC class. The track layout is nearing the end and it cant come soon enough as it is getting rough and beat, next week Hot Rod Raceway will host the Reedy Truck Race of Champions so a brand new layout will put in this coming Sunday.

Chad says the track has been working great, easy to drive and made driving a near flawless run in the Pro 4SC main easy. Chad took the win, Kevin Smith finished 2nd, Eric Beier 3rd.
