    This past weekend hosted the first Capricorn Cup at Barceloneta R/C Speedway in Puerto Rico. The weather was very hot which made it hard work for all the drivers.  The track layout was superb, but very technical.   The event gathered some of the best racers from all over the Island, and visiting racers from the state of Florida such as Rino Lino, Gianni Giorgio, two time National Champion Dj Apolaro, and Junior Castellanos.  All of them from the Team Capamerica.  DJ Apolaro would go on to win the 1/10 Nitro Sedan class while fellow teammate Guillermo Camacho took home the gold in the 1/8 Nitro class!

    Big Bend defeats mother nature AGAIN

    The Second Annual Big Bend Off-Road Shootout wins again! Mother Nature: 0 – Big Bend: 2. It was a well fought battle from both sides. A risky fluctuating forecast leading into this event didn’t shake the determination of the 170 entry field, even when rain decided to say hello twice during practice on Friday. Practice was delayed while the track crew went to work. The crowd stayed optimistic and the downtime was filled with comradery and games. The weather on the following day of qualifying was closer to ideal. The track was dry and the groove was coming alive by the 9th heat. Weather slowed the action down into the evening. After the track crew had their way with the standing water, an Iron-Man Mud Run boosted the track to runnable conditions. David Morgan out of Perry, FL won the mud run and a Psychotic Production Event Pass good into PNB, Wicked Weekend, or SIC. The last heat of qualifying completed at 1:15am. The mains were set and the weather was finally coming around. Read more…

    The 2014 Austria Cup took place this past weekend in Jaidhof, Austria on a small and technical track. In the highly competitive Nitro Buggy class, XRAY’s Martin Wollanka started out front, but would make a major mistake on lap 3. Rene Kargl inherited the lead, and looked to have an easy drive ahead of him. Wollanka pushed hard, reaching lap times 1 second faster than anyone on the track. He worked his way up to 2nd, and as luck would have it Kargl flamed out! Wollanka would inherit the lead back, and go on to win by two laps over the field.  Read more…

    Known as military nobility in Japan’s rich history, samurai were renown for their fighting skills and their eponymous battle swords that are now displayed over the mantle of every aging hipster in America. ProTek RC, a division of A-Main Hobbies, sent word to the industry just last week that they had a Samurai of their own in the form of a .21 nitro engine. Set for release in mid-August, this engine’s release has already caused quite a stir on social media. RCNews/NeoBuggy’s very own Stephen Bess received a test sample and decided to crack it open to check out what makes this Samurai tick! Read More…
