The recent RC Pro Finals of 2011 which took place at the Gulf Coast Race Way in Porter Texas was won by Jesse Robbers with his Hot Bodies CR8 however it was Jason Branham who took the championship. Jason Branham and Agama USA = National Champions… Congrats to Jason Branham on an impressive performance at the 2011 RC Pro Finals. Jason took the National Championship in both classes including the premier Pro 1/8th scale buggy class. Jason has been on a tear since Joining Agama USA / Hobby Pro USA. We take great pride in having a talented driver like Jason to show off the speed, durability and overall performance of the Agama A8 Buggy.

The RC Pro Series Finals was held November 2-5 at Mike’s Hobbies and Gulf Coast Raceway in Porter, TX, just outside of Houston. Gulf Coast Raceway recently held the 2010 IFMAR Sedan World Championships so they were very excited to hold their first major off-road championship and they didn’t disappoint. The Gulf Coast crew did an amazing job with the layout which made for some fast, high bite, and high flying action. Drivers came from all across the country including Puerto Rico so it was nice to see the participation and support for the series.

In qualifying my car was very solid with set-up; it was just finding the right tire choice for the constant change in temperature which affected the grip in the track. In five rounds of qualifying I was able to finish 2nd four times and 3rd once so I was on pace and able to mix it up with Jesse Robbers and Ryan Lutz who eventually took TQ honors for the main.

In the main I was confident that I had the right set-up and tire choice so I knew if I could get out and run clean then I would have a chance at a win. Ryan, Jesse and I quickly began to check out from the field but Jesse would catch a pipe while in the lead and while being marshaled the marshal stopped his flywheel and killed the engine. Ryan and I would swap back and forth for the lead until he too suffered some engine problems dropping him back into the field. This would give me a comfortable lead, for the moment, but
Jesse got back on the track quickly from his problem and was laying down some unbelievable lap times cutting into my lead seemingly every lap. I was able to hold Jesse off until about the 50 minute mark but I suffered from some bad lap traffic problems that allowed Jesse to get by me and take the eventual win. Finishing 2nd in the main it gave me enough points for the series to win the RC Pro Buggy National Title out right and making it my second year to do so.

My Agama A8 buggy was near perfect all weekend and I can’t say enough about this car and the confidence I’m building with it.
