Round 3 of the RC Pro Series was held at 439 R/C Raceway in Belton, Texas. The track was very tight and the soil was known for breaking up and making an already difficult layout even more technical as the weekend went on. I spent qualifying getting used to the new Buggy and tuning it to my liking.
Once the dust settled, I was relegated to 4th in the Pro Buggy B-Main. I had been getting closer and closer with the new buggy and the last few adjustments I was able to make really hit the mark. I slapped on a set of X3 Blockades and went out for the 30-minute B-Main. Right from the tone, I knew everything was where it needed to be. The Blockades were perfect (as always) and the car was doing everything I asked. I was able to run away from the field and win by nearly a lap.
Since the car was on pace with the TQ runs that had been set a day earlier on a much smoother track, I knew all I needed was a few maintenance items and a set of X2 Blockades for the 45-minute Pro Buggy A-Main. Once the Main was underway, I was able to drive to the front and take part in a 45-minute long, three-way battle for first where I would eventually come in a strong second.
Now to get everything ready for The Southern Nationals in a few weeks!
