The 2013 ROAR 1/8 Electric Off-road Nats was hosted at LCRC Raceway located in Oakland Mills, PA. Factory drivers from all the major chassis teams were in attendance. Lutz, Phend, Blair, Hartson, Potter, and many more were all looking to put their cars into the top positions. Tekin’s very own Jeremy “PG” Potter would be in attendance to support the team and anyone using Tekin products. 1/8 E Truggy was a tight class all week.
Ryan Lutz would put his Tekin Rx8 Gen2 T8 Gen2 powered Dex408T into the Tq position after some tight qualifying. In A1 Lutz would get some early pressure from his Tekin teammate Austin Blair. Lutz would gain a small gap when Blair would come under fire from Phend early on. Lutz would go onto take A1 followed by Blair and Phend. A2 would be a battle from tone to tone. Lutz would have Phend as a shadow for most of the race. Staying cool and keeping out of trouble Lutz would go onto take A2 securing the overall National Championship! Phend would take 2nd and Blair 3r. A3 would have Lutz participating only as a spectator. Phend would take A3 with Blair 2nd. This would put Lutz 1st, Phend 2nd and Blair 3rd overall. Lutz and Blair both chose the Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and T8 Gen 2 2000kv motors. Again Tekin would power over half of the field with team drivers Lutz, Blair, JM McGinty, Bornhorst, and Pettit all taking a position in the Amain field. Great work guys!
