Serpent reports – “Last weekend the first round of the RCCM Cup took place on the track in Hildesheim. Arriving on Thursday, there was no opportunity for practice due to rain for the 31 starters, sothat the first practice heats went on Saturday morning. After the last qualification heat Merlin had to start from pole position in the final with his MAX powered Serpent 733. Right from the start of the final he pulled away and ran easily for 30 minutes with a smooth working car, finishing 7 laps in front of second Thomas Einbeck. It was the first race with the Serpent 733 for Merlin, who had never before started in a 1/10 scale class. Also thanks to Mechanic Björn Möhring and Siegfried Lakeit for pitting, who replaced pit man Hansi Heise for this weekend.”

“As standard composite parts Serpent offers the wishbones for the Serpent 733 now in a softer but extremely durable composite nylon, called M for medium. The parts have more less flex than the H = hard parts. In most cases the standard nylon parts M, with more flex, will perform best.”

We start with the story of the Modified championships at the DHI cup with fantastically close racing in all 3 finals. Then we are back to Florida for World GT action from the Snowbirds, where you will have to decide if the “winner” really won!” RC Racing Read more…
Team Shepherd reports – “Last weekend the first round of the Danish Nationals took place at the Odense RC MiniRace track. I was also there to compete the first time with the Velox V10. Unfortunately the weather was not so nice which limited the possibilities to practise. Nevertheless I had a good feeling and was confident for the first round of qualifying. With a new track record I clocked the fastest time. Right after the first round was done rain arrived again and the rest of the qualifying was cancelled. The finals were scheduled for Sunday and finally the track was dry. I did some setup changes and was really satsified with the car after the final practise. Right from the start of the final I pulled away and never looked back. My Velox V10 powered by IDM engines ran flawless and after 30 minutes I crossed the finishing line in first position. Read more…
