Team Durango Czech Republic racing star Kaja Novotny has added to his impressive recent off-road from by returning from the third round of the Lestr Cup with a triple podium finish! Kaja competed in the 2WD Buggy class with his DEX210, and battled some fast local drivers to take an overall first position and TQ ahead of Marcel Dostal and Paul Braun who finished second and third respectively.
He then went on to add a blisteringly fast Short Course performance with his DESC410Rv2 with a first overall and yet another TQ finish with Jakub Vondracek and Jaroslav Ruzicka completing the podium. In the 4WD Buggy class, Kaja piloted his DEX410v4 Buggy to second overall behind first place Ales Bayer but ahead of Lukáš Zeman who completed the podium.

Chris Wheeler reports after winning at the 28th Annual Arizona State Championships… This past weekend was a double header for events here in Arizona, Friday we had the Warehouse 3 Holiday Rush in Phoenix. I ran 2wd modified buggy and after some rough luck in qualifying I was able to secure a 3rd overall. On Saturday I then went on to compete in the 28th Annual Arizona State Championships held as Hobbytown/SRS in Scottsdale. This would be the last major event held at this location as the facility is moving to an indoor location in the next few months. I once again competed in the 2wd Modified buggy class as well as 2wd Modified SC.

Reedy’s 7000mAh 65C LiPo battery features heavy-duty 5mm socket for high current applications such as Short Course 4WD and 1/8th eBuggy. Racers will certainly appreciate the improvement in power output achieved by utilizing a lower resistance connector. If the specs sound familiar, they are! This battery is constructed with the same low resistance, high-capacity cells used in Reedy’s popular #309 battery housed in a durable hard case.
