    October 22, 2010 - 16:02 by Kevin 0 Comments

    Yeah Racing reports – “We are glad to annuonce the Yeah Racing TRANSFORMULA F-1 Conversion Kit has already been launched. Currently most of the F-1 RC models in the market are obtaining the T-bar system and it is general believe that T-bar is the most suitable system for F-1 model with its simple operation. However Mr. Hideo Kitazawa, the organizer of Japan F1RCGP and an active F1 racer believes the linkage system if more effective in high speed impacts and control better in bumpy conditions. Racers should adopt a different system base on the track condition and this is why TRANSFORMULA is born – with a single kit you can convert to either T-bar/linkage system which best fit with the track. The TRANSFORMULA features all-new-designed chassis, battery plate, servo mount and motor mount so users can convert the car to either T-bar/linkage system.

    “Endurance….. the ability or strength to continue or last, despite fatigue, stress, or other adverse conditions. So, that’s the meaning of the word. But what were the “fatigue, stress, and adverse conditions” in relation to this event? Well how does six hours none stop driving sound. Breaking in a brand new engine on the morning of the race, and making it last the whole six hours. Rationing the two gallon of provided fuel, to last the haul. Making sure a team member was at their marshal point, for every half hour stint. Staying fed and watered! Staying awake!!…. Ok, it wasn’t exactly 24hour endurance but still a massive test of man and machine. The event started as an idea for Kev Davies at the start of the year. Read more…

    New Extra Hard Velox V10 Chassis Plate

    October 19, 2010 - 18:58 by Kevin 0 Comments

    Team Shepherd – “We are pleased to announce the release of the extra hard chassis plate for the Velox V10 (#503101). This chassis plate is CNC-machined from finest German 7075 T6 alloy and meets the highest quality standards. The material is super-strong and extra stiff which results in a more reactive car. The hard chassis plate features some additional mounting holes for the brass battery plate mounts (#512302). So it’s possible to use up to 5 brass mounts to reach the necessary minimum weight.”

    Hébert Wins 2010 Timezone Grand Prix

    October 19, 2010 - 18:51 by Kevin 0 Comments

    “The 2nd Annual Timezone Grand Prix was held October 10-12 at the beautiful Timezone raceway in La Center, WA. With Scotty Ernest and the hard-working Timezone crew putting on the show, the race was bound to be first class. Early on in practice, I felt that both my TC6 and 12R5.1 were on pace with the local fast guys and well-known drivers Donny Lia and Paul Lemieux. With practice scheduled all day Friday, great importance was placed on the three rounds of qualifying scheduled for Saturday. Saturday started perfectly for me as I set the TQ run in the first round of Open TC by .2 seconds over Paul Lemieux. Unfortunately my time would later be beaten by Lemieux in the third round by only .2 seconds again. The battle between Paul and me was very close! Local Northwest driver Kody Knutson qualified third for Sunday’s main event. The first round of 1/12 Modified did not go well but I was able to recover in the second round with the only 50-lap run in qualifying. This run would eventually hold up for TQ. In the third round the track became faster but a few crashes by both me and Donny Lia would prevent any improvement, which meant I would start from the pole position. Read more…
