Daytona Beach East Coast R/C Club hosted to the first round of the RCsignup / JConcepts Super Cup 2009 Fall Session and with 103 entries racing proved to be fierce!
This was my first time returning to Daytona since last year’s Super Cup event and what a difference a year makes! Last years track was relatively flat and super high-bite with no rain in sight and this year we arrive to a rain soaked nitro inspired track (elevation changes, big jumps, and whoops). The track crew busted their tails Friday night and Saturday morning getting the track ready for the morning practice session and as expected the track quickly fluffed up and Goosebumps became the easy choice for most racers. The track layout was very cool and fun to drive, but the extreme size of some of the obstacles made things very difficult and cause some serious breakage.
Round 1 prove to be a little tricky as we found ourselves running in mixed conditions between fluff and hard packed. Most racers stuck with Goosebumps and just tried to put in some clean runs knowing the track would most likely yield faster times in round 2.
By round 2 the track dried out significantly and was more consistent. It was time to bolt on the Double Dees and let it rip! Unfortunately traction never came up in the 2nd round and the track was really slick.
