Mason Eppley Wins Big at O.S.S. on Pro-Line Blockades and Suburbs

Yesterday was the last round (RD4) of the O.S.S Series (Oregon State Series) at Poor Boy Raceway. It was a new track to me as I had never raced 1:8 there before.


I ran the Tekno EB48.2, NB48, and my new B44.3.  I got there early Saturday morning to get a little practice in and get the tune right on my engines. Starting with my setup from a previous sugared track, all my cars felt really good. After making only one setup change, I was ready for the racing to begin!

I had a great clean run in all of my classes taking the first round TQ in all three. After a lunch break and charging some batteries, round 2 began. During the E-Buggy practice laps, unfortunately a little rock got into my spur gear and ended the chances of taking the round 2 TQ. While for Nitro and 1:10, I had another good run. Luckily my E-Buggy TQ held up and I got the TQ for all three of my classes! Once again I went over everything and got it all ready for the main events! My 7-minute 1:10 Main was first. Immediately we all noticed some pretty large ruts had developed in the faces of the jumps and the sugar was almost gone. Needless to say it definitely affected the Buggies!

Taking it easy and focusing on not crashing, I took the win in 1:10 4WD Buggy.

The 30-Minute Nitro main was next. This particular track was indoors and during the nitro main nobody could hear anything! Trying to do math in my head of when to come in for fuel, I thankfully didn’t flame out! I had a great battle going for first but he flamed out and I had a clean run to the end taking the win in Nitro Buggy.

The last race of the day was the 1:8 E-Buggy class. It was a 10-minute race. I had a great battle for first once again and slightly pulled away and ended up taking the victory.

Overall it was a great day of racing and a big thanks to Mark Schroeder and Colby Purdy for the tuning help and to Terry Cook for the help all day and for pitting for me!!!

All of my Pro-Line X2 Blockades and Suburbs tires were dialed!!!

A huge thanks to my sponsors, I wouldn’t be where I am today without you guys! Tekno RC, Pro-Line Racing, Airtronics, DE Racing, Red’s Airbrush Design, All Around RC & Hobbies, and Team Powers.
