Round #1 of the 3 Round Dirt Road Stampede took place 6/7/15 at Willow Farm R/C Raceway. Not only being the promoter for the Race Series I also ran in 3 Classes; 2WD Short Course, 1:10 4WD Buggy, and 1:8 Electric Buggy! There was a total of 92 Entries with the largest classes being: 2WD Short Course, 4WD Short Course and the Largest 1:8 Electric Buggy. Tire of the day in those classes were Hole Shots and Suppressors.
The most I had was in the 2WD Short Course Class with my Pro-Line PRO-2.
I messed up in the B-Main and almost didn’t Bump. Then I surged forward from last too second. Then I started at the tail of the A-Main where I finished up in 8th Place. I was on Pro-Line Stunner M3 prob should’ve been on Hole Shots.
I sure do love the the Pro-Line Secure Lock Body Mounts. I seen a few bodies flapping!
Was able to finish on the Podium in the 1:10 4WD Buggy Class with my Hot Bodies D413.
Had a mechanical issue with it and prob could’ve finished higher.
1:8 Electric Buggy started out slow. Took me a little to find my driving line! Started 7th in the B-Main with the 2 Bumps and 8th right behind me. Finished in 4th place 5-seconds off 3rd place Jim Lonzo. I was hunting him down. The field was stacked with the 1:8 E-Buggy cash race being the day before. Great Job to Pro-Line Teammate Jeremy McGuigan on a huge win in that class.
