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.
Jimmy McKinley was the TQ for the Legend class and held off the field for the A Main win. Justin Safran dominated the field by holding the TQ in both 21.5 late Model and 17.5 Super Truck and also taking home the A Main win in both classes. Rick Lohr showed the way in Outlaw EDM to take home the main win. Jeremy Gullo came out on top in 13.5 Nationwide for the A main win. Justin Safran was also the lucky winner of the Boca Bearings gift certificate.
Our next stop will be at PT Raceway in Trafford, PA on Jan. 17.
Thank you for all of your support not only only to our series but throughout the hobby.

Dear Boca Bearings,
During the 4th quarter, I upgraded the bearings in both my 2wd and 4wd Short course trucks (SCT). I installed yellow sealed ceramic bearings in 2wd transmission and in the front, rear and center differentials in my 4wd. I was able to break the bearings in during my final race of the quarter and I am looking forward to running them again at me next race.
In Oct. , I raced at Strickland RC Park in Daytona Beach, FL. During practice, my 4wd SCT felt odd and I was a little perplexed because I just did a complete rebuild. During the 1st and only qualifier, I realized that I only had rear wheel drive; the set screw in my the front of center drive shaft backed out. I missed the qualifier and repaired it before the main. I ended up using a set screw from a spare Tekno pinion gear. I started sixth in the main after DNF’ing the 1st qualifier. I ended up finishing second. I won the 1st qualifier and the main with my 2wd SCT.
In November, I raced in the TNT battle at Low Country RC in Savannah, GA. I had a great time racing with my friends in south GA. I was the top qualifier after the 1st qualifying round in 2wd SCT. I made a few setup changes during the 2nd qualifier and fell to 3rd position in the Amain race. In the A-main I was in 1st place after the2nd lap. I had a great 7 minute battle with a local fast guy but I had a bad lap at around the 8 minute mark of the race. I finished in 2nd place. I was having issues with my ESC in my 4x4 sct and I was glad to complete the qualifiers and A-main. I also finished in 2nd.
In December, I raced in the Toys for Tots race at Strickland RC Park in Daytona Beach, FL. There was a great turn out and many toys were donated to county. There was also some good clean racing with several of my racing buddies that I hadn’t seen in awhile. Both on my SCTs handled well all day so I felt great after the race.
I received a couple new kits during the holidays. Teddy has been very helpful and created two new bearings kits for my RC cars. I hope to have green sealed kits before I start building my new RCs.
Thank you Boca Bearings for your continued support. I’m looking forward to racing in 2015!
The last stretch of the year was a good one for me.
Got in some good racing with family and friends. Indy RC world fall series, the 20th LoanStar Classic. And my first time out with a 2wd buggy at the operation Santa Clause race at TNT Speedway in Shreveport, LA.
I also had a great Christmas with my family.
And I got to book my plain ticket for The Dirt Nitro Challenge coming up in February. Saying I’m pumped is an understatement. LOL!
I have ran the green seal bearing all year. On all of my cars. Most of them all year on one set of bearing. Through all of the races including psycho nitro blast. I never had one bearing failure. Great bearing. Couldn’t be happier with them. I want to take the time to thank you guys for giving me the opportunity to represent a great company like BOCA BEARINGS.
My results for the races I attended in the 4th quarter are as follows — Indy RC world fall series Int. nitro buggy 3rd overall; open truggy 4th over all; 20th LoanStar Classic Int. Nitro buggy 4th; Int. nitro truggy 2nd; Operation Santa race 7th open 2wd buggy.
