Race Report by Tag Georges
This last Saturday was the second race of the Ice Breaker Points Series at SCRC. Again, I ran my XB8 SE and XB8E and they were both very good. In qualifying, I would make a few mistakes in both classes which would not allow me to qualify where I would have liked. I would end up 2nd in Electric Buggy and 4th in Nitro Buggy.

I made a few changes to the buggies before the mains, which ended up improving the handling of both and helped me finish my day where I did. In the Electric main, I would capitalize on an early mistake by Chuck Hicks and inherit the lead. I would keep this position for the rest of the race and walk away by 12 seconds to 2nd place. The buggy felt amazing through the bumps, rotated like it should and overall was a dream to drive. I believe this will be my starting setup for the XB8E.

In the Nitro Buggy, I would get a terrible start, falling all the way back to 8th. From there, I would put my head down and click of some fast, consistent laps. After the first round of pit stops, I would find myself in a battle for 4th. This was a very tight race with some fast guys. After pulling away from them a bit and the 2nd pit stop, I found myself battling for 2nd place with Casey Peck and Wyatt Bieter. I would capitalize on them racing each other and I would finish behind Chuck Hicks by 12 seconds. This was very good considering I was lapped by him before the first pit stop. The buggies are really starting to break in and feel very comfortable. I love them more and more each time I run them.
