We started our National campaign last weekend with glorious weather and a hard packed track with lots of grip for the first round of the BRCA Electric 1:8 National Championship held at the Herts track. Elliott was using his Kyosho MP9 TKI3 E with a very similar setup that he uses on his Nitro car which is always very good. We were really excited about this event as it kicks off our campaign for 2014.
Elliott had one change for 2014 for his E Buggy and that was the super fast Tekin equipment. Elliot was using the new RX8 Gen 2 Electronic Speed Controller and a 1900 KV Tekin Motor which ran all weekend with super power and nice power delivery and was able to compete in a 12 minute final very easily with plenty of power in reserve.
In qualifying Elliott was extremely fast. Unfortunately due to a couple of bobbles here and there on a very demanding track and a couple of back marker problems, secured second place for the final. Elliott had been running the Pro-Line Diamond Back X2 Tyre which was extremely fast and lots of traction and was his tyre choice for the main final.
Elliott was on second row of the grid for the main 12 minute A Final in which he made a fantastic start and was able to take the lead very quickly from Lee Martin. Elliott then put in some outstanding laps and was able to give himself a nice gap from second place and the rest of the pack. He was able to back off his pace a little to save using all his power up as it was a large track and we wanted to make sure we finished the race, which he was able to do comfortably and take his first BRCA Championship win of the year.
E8 BUGGY A FINAL:
- Elliot Boots – Kyosho
- Lee Martin – Mugen
- Jack Embling – Mugen
We would like to thank all the sponsors for all their help and support and hope this continues on through 2014.
Next round is in Coventry in April.
