This past week I had the opportunity to travel down to Heritage R/C Park in Chula Vista to take part in their Winter Shootout Series. The weather was awesome as always down in Chula Vista, and set the perfect stage for an awesome day of racing.
There were a total of 12 heats of racing which meant it would be important to keep up on the different track changes throughout the long day. Due to the fact that this was my first time out, running Expert Truggy with my brand new TLR 3.0 Truggy, I must admit I was a bit nervous, but up for the challenge. After 2 rounds of qualifying, I ended up starting 6th on the grid for the Mains. In preparation for the 25-min Mains I toyed back and forth rather to run Pro-Line Blockades to assure I’d have Tires left at the end of the main, but made the final decision to run the same set of Pro-Line M3 Hole Shots that I ran for both qualifiers.
The race got underway and after some aggressive driving at the start of the race, the field settled down and I was able to start making my move towards the front.
Thanks to my M3 Hole Shots I had the advantage to break later in the corners, hold a tighter line and accelerate faster to move all the way up to finishing 3rd on the podium.
