    Baudino Wins Argentinian Nationals

    August 31, 2010 - 10:43 by Kevin 0 Comments

    “Already two weeks ago this years Argentian Championship race was held at the captial Buenos Aires. It was Argentinian Team Shepherd member Eduardo Giardino how claimed the 2010 national titel with his Velox V8. The practise started already on Friday, but the weather conditions were cold and damp in the morning. In the afternoon the traction came up and Giardino clocked some good lap times. On Saturday the qualifying started. In the first round Giardino was very fast, but his transponder didn’t count correctly. The problem was solved for the secound round and he had a good run which secured him the second position. Afterwards nobody could improve so Giardino lined up second in the grid behind pole-setter Augustin Cutini. The 45 minute final was scheduled for sunday afternoon. At the start Giardino defended his second position and tried to follow the leader. His strategy was not to change tyres and it worked out quite good. Although the strategy not to change tyres didn’t worked out that good, Giardino could hold his second position. When Cutini had an accident, Giardino took over the first position and cruised to the end, winning with two laps over Adrian Frigerio and Francesco Rinaldi in third position.”



    BRCA Victory for TC6

    August 31, 2010 - 10:40 by Kevin 0 Comments

    “Olly Jeffries gave the new Team Associated TC6 its maiden win at Round 4 of the 2010 BRCA Nationals. The UK National Series is a highly competitive five-race series featuring some of Europe’s best drivers on challenging tracks that test both drivers and equipment. In such a competitive series, the cream always rises to the top. Olly took TQ with the TC6 in its debut at Aldershot in July but lost out in the finals. At the fast Halifax track, Olly drove his Reedy/LRP powered TC6 with speed and consistency in Saturday’s rounds and set the fastest time on Sunday morning in round four to secure TQ and pole position for the A-final. Sunday’s A-final saw Olly dominate with victories in the first two legs to claim the overall victory for Team Associated, Reedy, and LRP. Olly was delighted with the performance that the TC6 delivered on one of the UK’s toughest and fastest tracks and looks forward to the next round of the championship. Congratulations to Olly for taking the TC6 to the top of the podium!”



    Real Men from X Factory

    August 31, 2010 - 10:36 by Kevin 0 Comments

    “X Factory announces a new line of upgrade parts to fit the full range of X-Cars and, in some cases, many other brands of off-road 1/10 vehicles as well. Called “Real Men Wear Black,” most items in the new line of parts will be black. All are designed by X Factory’s chief engineer, Paul Sinclair and he uses them on his cars. The “Real Men Wear Black” line kicks off now with four great items and will be expanded soon as Paul designs new parts. With their distinct black and white packaging, “Real Men Wear Black” will be easy to spot at your local hobby store. In some cases these are new hop-up parts for areas of the car where no other company makes cool parts; those which are similar to others’ are priced less than other brands. Paul said, “I got tired of so much blue all over my car. It was just too much. When we prototype a new part, even dialed D.D.P. and E-Speed parts, I get to use the first prototypes without anodizing, and I began to like the black with silver look. A while ago, as we started production on those great items, I made a special request to have my personal parts anodized black. Perfect!” Read more…
