It was a complete family adventure as my wife handled a significant portion of the pit crew aspects while also watching and caring for our 2-yr old daughter. We are hoping this weekend was a glimpse of what is to come and hope for many more family weekends at the track.
In the E-Buggy division, I grabbed TQ and the win with my XRAY XB8e. I made a few tweaks to the suspension prior to the race to account for the
90+ degree weather. The buggy responded really well and felt great the
entire day, as I was able to win all three heats as well as the main.
Due to the heat and blistering sun, the track dried out and the surface became very dusty. I enjoyed the loose conditions and drifting around the corners. It was a welcomed change from the high-bite, sugared tracks. I selected M3 Pro-Line Switchblades and even with the extreme heat, they held up great and provided excellent traction all day.
I would like to thank XRAY / RC America, Maclan, Pro-Line, Venom, Xpert, Boca Bearings, BOOMrc, Sticky Kicks, and World of RC Parts in Wilson, NC for their continued support and allowing me to be a member of their team!
