VP-PRO Team Driver T-Mizzle TQ

461

VP-PRO reports – “Ok guys, raced the GO 7 port/0801 powered B8rs and for the first time this weekend at Rd1 of the HARC series with a few of the fastest guys in TX, including the RC Pro National champion for 08. Only ran 3 tanks of practice and the car felt great. I did manage to crack my wing but the temps were very cold in the morning. RD1 qualifying. I was in the last expert heat and TQ 9 was laps 5:07, I took to the track on VP STRIKER tires and was on a 10 5:17 pace until a couple bobbles but still finished with a 10 5:31, the only 10 lap run on the first RD. New TQ In qual2 team O’Donnell driver set new TQ with a 10 5:29 after a no mistake run. I get on the track to once again try to take it back but I broke a CVD pin (just the little pin that goes through the barrel) so I didn’t make that round. Last qual: no new TQ this round as the track got slower but not for the B8rs as I went on to take TQ back on VP CUTOFFS with a 10 5:25 to TQ for the day overall. The car TQed every time it hot the track. In the A main I got the hole shot followed by Team Xray driver Jake and we battled for the entire main until something strange happened and every time I came in to pit and got fresh fuel the engine would stall as soon as the fuel gun trigger was pressed. So 4 in pit flameouts put first out of reach but I still ended up 2nd. TQ and 2nd place was my final result.” George “T-mizZ” Drake [Our thanks go to VP PRO for this news]
