Friday Night Racing Series at OC/RC

Another night at the friday night points series held by OC/RC went great! There was a pretty good turnout with roughly 100 entries and 12 rounds of racing. All the modifications I made last week performed flawlessly with not one break in the car or popped ball cup. The tires I had made for my buggy performed very well.

Here is a shot of the buggy before round one of racing. Clean tires and the perfect ride height helped the buggy handle like a slot car.

Here is a shot of the racers before round one of racing started.
The track is no longer fresh and the racing line is very clear. The traction was very good, with many guys setting new track records! A lot of people still see, to have trouble with the whoop section. If you are one of these people, then try to triple double out. A quick boost of throttle for the triple and then the double.

The pit were full of people and the competition was certainly fierce. The Pro 4 class has some top competitors from throughout Southern California.

Another shot of the pits.

The night of racing was extremely fun and I ended up qualifying second in rookie and then I took 1st in the main event. For pro 2 I qualified 6th and took 6th in the main. when you get a podium finish, OC/RC likes to give back to the racers with some RACE BUCKS! Check them out!

Good luck at the races! Remember, you can always ask me for help, just look for the KLA cars at the track.
