Manufacturers Cup

This past weekend was one of the best races that i have attended in awhile for our industry. The Manufacturers Cup in Cuoer de Lane Idaho brought a grandstands full of people to watch RC racing. Team Losi had another good weekend. We had Tom Waggoner bring home the win with his 8ight-T in the sportsman truggy class and earned himself a well deserved sponsorship with Team Losi. Welcome to the team. As for myself, I had another great weekend with my GRP/Nitrotane powered 8ight and 8ight-T. In the truggy class i had a rough time in qualifying with technical difficulties in both the second and third round putting me into the C main after qualifying was over. I managed to bump all the way into the final and finished second. In the buggy class Adam was on fire in qualifying putting in solid runs that tied him for the overall TQ. In the final after a rough start for adam i found myself running in second. I ended up winning the 60 lap final by 5 seconds and brought home the grand prize of the Honda CRF 450r. Now it is time to get ready for the Electric Off Road Nationals at Hot Rod Hobbies.
