As a racer, sometimes you need to take some time away from the racing scene and catch some fresh air. That is exactly what I have done for the last month or two. This past weekend I attended the ROAR 1/8 Regional Championships in my division, marking my first race back since taking my ‘vacation’ from R/C. While I knew I would be a bit rusty, I had no idea how quickly rust builds, and how hard it is to shake off. I know I am not the only one who takes vacation’s away from R/C racing from time to time, and to save you a bit of trouble when you return to racing, I have put together my top 10 list of things to remember BEFORE heading to the track (all of which I learned this past weekend).
Race Report by: AKA
Coming off of an impressive 4-win sweep at ROAR Nationals, Ryan Cavalieri is keeping his winning streak alive at the Surf City Classic hosted by his home track, OCRC Raceway. Cavalieri contested three classes with his AKA equipped 2wd and 4wd buggies, and 2wd short course truck. He made quick work of the SC field by TQ’ing all four rounds of qualifying and walking away in the 10-minute main on SC Typo front and Chain Link rear tires in clay compound, supported by Black Closed-Cell Wide SC inserts. Stock SC was dominated by AKA driver and OCRC local, Jason Dias. Dias took the TQ after qualifying and walked away from the field in a tone to tone win. Jason was on Clay SC Typo tires, Red inserts, and Cyclone SC wheels.
Cavalieri would start 2nd on the grid in the lengthy 4wd modified buggy main with rival, Ryan Maifield, on the pole. After a typical epic battle of the Ryan’s, Cavalieri would come out on top on Clay EVO Typo front and Chain Link rear tires with Red EVO inserts all around. 2wd modified buggy was another Ryan-Ryan battle but after a few costly mistakes, Cav would have to settle for a respectable 2nd place finish. His 2wd buggy was hooked up on Clay EVO Pinstripe front and Chain Link rear tires with Red Closed-Cell Inserts. Congrats to the entire AKA team on a great performance at the Surf City Classic!

New from Revolution Design Racing Products comes the B5M Wing Mount Set that is designed to replace the kit’s plastic wing mount with more durable and better performing parts. The mount is of a -7mm design that places the wing 7mm lower than the stock wing mount does, which leads to a lower centre of gravity and improved jumping both on small, medium and large jumps. On top of that the high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium part grants a better support for the wing which leads to better aerodynamics and also improved durability in the event of a crash. The wing mount set is available in blue or black anodising to match the remainder of RDRP’s AE B5 series option parts.
