Doug “Casper” Nielsen recently attended the Exeter Hobbies 2013 Summer Nationals which was a race put on by the Cutler-Orosi Youth Program sending proceeds to a good cause. Racers attended from all over the central California valley to support the event, a good turnout with 10 heats of racing made for a relaxed fun day of racing. Casper showed up to the event with his Panther Tire shod Tekin/Venom powered TLR 22-SCT and TLR Ten-SCTE 2.0 ready for action.
Casper was able to dominate qualifying taking top starting spots in both the Modifed 2wd SC and Expert 4wd SC classes showing his Panther Tires traction was going to be the combination to beat. As the mains were setup Casper took his TQ starting spot for the 7 min “A” mains and as the tone went off Casper got out to clean start and pulled away with the win running consistent laps in both classes and having the only 4wd SC truck to break into the 12 second lap times.

I was able to win all qualifying rounds and the main comfortably.” His SC truck had a combo of Wishbone 2′s rear and Enduro 2′s up front, both in Soft compound as well.

Introducing the Hazard 12mm hex wheel for the front of the SC10B by JConcepts. A powerful new look that combines the winning combination of a 10 spoke design, bead-lock appearance and center lug nut detail with a hint of inspiration from yesteryear. The Hazard will make an immediate impact on the performance of the SC10B by widening the stance by 6mm in overall width. The increased width will maximize the SC10B and bring it up to the SCT ROAR maximum legal limits in dimensional width.

Some of our eagle-eyed readers from European IPs may have noticed our somewhat…
edgy sexist unsubtle ad space promotion on the lefthand column (visitors from non-European IPs – sorry for alienating you slightly!!) - why are we highlighting this in the news ? Well, in the quite unique world of RC advertising, this particular ad space is split on a continental basis – in this case you lucky N.Americans get to see ads from Hobbico brands whilst ‘us Euros’ will have to suffer through the occasional sight of Random Natural Perfection of the female kind…
If you’re interested in having your brands and products seen by thousands of European visitors do get in contact.

AVID makes your life better (and your ride cooler) once again with their fresh approach on a traditional aluminium ball stud washer by introducing a staggered outer diameter so you can easily tell what thickness of a washer you are running. As the washers grow in thickness, the outside diameter grows in steps of 0.5mm. Replace the plastic washers that come in your kit with these precision machined aluminium washers which won’t crush and change thickness when clamped. Fits Associated, Team Losi Racing, Kyosho, Durango, and other popular brand 10th scale cars/trucks.
