This weekend I traveled to Star City Hobbies in El Paso, TX to compete in the first ever Ice Breaker Nitro series. Racers came from New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona to join in on the loamy fun. With right at 80 entries everyone agreed that the event was great success. 3 full heats of Nitro Buggy made the competition quite fierce, and the rough track keep us all on our toes.
Pro-Line M3 Hole Shots and SwitchBlades were my choice for qualifying with Hole Shots being the fastest on the wet track.
For the A-Main I choose X3 Switchblades which were not the right tire but I was still able to take the win in the 20-min Main. After the Main I tried some more tires and the M4 Hole Shot was really good. It would have a much better choice given the chilly air and moisture in the track.
