The RC Pro Series had their Wisconsin state finals this past weekend, and I wanted to end the season on a high note. I TQ’d 2 of the 3 rounds of qualifing in 1/8th Buggy using a combination of Rulux and Max Up wheels shod with Blue Hit Men. Over the course of the 30 minute A final I maintained 1st place and pulled out over a 1 lap lead on second place. This track is known for being very abrasive to tires, but the tire wear to the Hit Men was minimal. The Max Up rims also really helped in the main, as the track had gotten bumpier as the day went on. Gas Truck was a similar story, as I was able to capture the win using Goose Bump tires (green) and the Illuzion body for the AD2.
These wins enabled me to take the overall series championship for both Gas Truck and 1/8th Buggy.
Products Used/Notable Happenings: Hit Men tires (blue compound), JConcepts rims (Rulux and Max Ups), Illuzion body, JConcepts High Downforce wing. This was my first race with the new Mugen MBX6 buggy, but the Hit Men tires worked really great with the box setup.
