I had a good time this weekend at the SoCal Shootout at the Pro-Line headquarters, probably one of the best layouts I’ve driven on in a while.
My XB8 nitro buggy was very good the whole weekend heading into the main event behind Kyosho drivers Mason Eppley and Cj Jelin. Having good qualifying and starting 3rd on the grid, I ended up having mechanical problems throughout the main and was back of the pack despite my car feeling great and being one of the fastest on the track. For the E-buggy class, I also had good qualifying taking the TQ and having a good car going into the main. My car wasn’t set correctly for the main event and I ran tires that should have been a different compound. After having a good battle with Cj Jelin throughout the main, I ended up making a couple mistakes giving me second place overall in E-buggy. Thank you to all my sponsors for making this hobby possible for me.
