I attended the second round of the Michigan State Championship Series at Dirt Burner Racing in Livonia, MI on May 2. M.S.C.S is a 7 race series that offers both nitro & electric classes traveling across Michigan and Indiana.
Unable to attend Friday practice, I arrived early Saturday morning to get setup so I could get on the track as soon as it opened. Being familiar with Dirt Burner’s surface, I started out on 2.2″ MC Electrons Front & Rear with V2 Closed Cell foam on my B5M. My car was hooked up and turning competitive times from the first lap.
As qualifying started, I stuck with the Tires I broke in during practice. I would TQ the first round by 9-seconds with a run of 15 laps in 5:04. Round two went the same as I upped the pace to 16 laps in 5:17. For round three, the track had dried out more than expected and my car was loose. So during open track between round 3 and the Mains I tested a new set of 2.2″ MC Electrons with Open Cell Foam in the Rear. The grip was perfect.
On the first lap of the Main, I would make a mistake and fall to 5th. After gathering it up, I would put in a solid lap to get back on my pace and charge back to the front. After 7-minutes I would go on to take the win with an 8-second lead.
Thanks to Pro-Line for all the support!
