It’s this time of the year, the time to rebuild everything, or even upgrade to the newest model. For me, in Northern New-Brunswick (Canada), where we don’t have an indoor offroad RC track, it’s time to start planning for next offroad season, and wait for all this snow to melt away.
Let me just say one thing: Boca Bearing is very reliable. I haven’t had bearing problems at all during this racing season. And as I’m checking everything, they all look in perfect shape and still turns like new. Of course I used some Lightning Lube and I have kept my RC cleaned after each race day. Its the easiest way to detect any broken parts, or things that could let go during the next race. And the Boca Screwdriver Set was a really good set of tools to have at the track. Didn’t had to look around for that little allen key, everything is stored in a nice case, as long as you don’t forget to put the driver in its place once you’re done with it.
Last year (2014) was a lot of fun. Its not just about winning all the time. It’s also to be able to go at the track, have fun with people that share the same passion about RC Cars, and help others to better understand the bits and pieces of RC Cars and Racing.
Can’t wait for 2015 racing season, to meet new people at the track, and share what I’ve learned so far, and learn new things from more experienced racers than me. And of course, a few wins here and there won’t hurt !
Proud to be part of Team Boca Bearing
In Quarter 4 I attended a couple of three-day races including the Byrons Fuel Challenge in Omaha, Nebraska.
In open buggy and truggy qualifying ended with me sitting TQ in both classes. Electric 1/8th buggy I had new car blues and qualified mid c-main.
When Sunday came around for the mains, E-buggy was first class up I bumped from the c-main and came from the back to finish 3rd in the b-main. Nitro buggy and truggy started on point for the 45 minute mains and the end of the long races I finished with a pair of second place finishes.
The next weekend race was the first race of the winter series once again in Omaha, Nebraska.
Only ran the two nitro classes for this race. Qualified 3rd in buggy and 10th in truggy with some electrical gremlins. Finished the weekend with a fourth-place finish in nitro buggy and bumped from the B-main with a win in truggy. Started the a-main in truggy after the bump only got about 2 minutes in and broke out for a dnf and a 10th place finish.
Also attended Bluegroove Hobbies grand opening in Des Moines, Iowa. At the time of the grand opening all I had to run indoor was the 1/8th scale buggy. Qualified third and ended up getting the win in the 10 minute a-main.
I would like to thank Boca Bearings for their support during the 2014 season and look forward to hopefully continue representing their product in 2015.
XRAY NT1 almost ready to go for the Euro Nitro Series in Fiorona, Italy. See the Ceramic Orange seal Abec 7 bearings.
I used these for a year now and the car is still very free.
I ensure that I use the lightning products (Clean Touch and High Speed Oil) to keep them in good condition.
They are cleaned after every meeting and before Finals.
I just missed the A Final and finished 14th overall at this meeting.
Many thanks to Boca Bearings for your support so far.
In my latest report, I set up a USA ROSSA RC High Speed Championship on December 7th at 10:00 am at the Oceans Springs Airport in Mississippi.
Racers from Atlanta, GA, Miami, FL, and Mississippi will be participating. This event will be the first official event that I put together and the last event in 2014 for me in the USA before I head out to Italy in January.
Boca Bearing is always welcome to come and check out this event.
Thank you for your support as always!!
The Hooter Chassis Outlaw Tour held it’s annual New Years Day race at BullDog R/C in Erie, PA.
