Vassmar makes the A-main with the New Schumacher Mi6 at ETS

This weekend the 3rd round of the ETS 2015/2016 series was held in Wels, Austria. The indoor track had high traction and the layout was mixed but overall quite fast and flowing. The new Mi6 worked really good right from the start for Magnus Vassmar and he was P7 after the first round of practice. After some setup changes in the wrong direction for the second practice,  he was P21 for the qualies.

With new changes again for Q1 he was again P7 in the round. The car was super easy to drive and had good pace over 5 minutes. For the remaining qualiers, he tested various setup changes as the base setup worked really well. He secured P10 for the A-main with P7/Q1 and P8/Q2 as counting rounds. Michal Orlowski had pace for the A-main as well but after some bad luck he found himself at P16 after the qualies. Elliot Harper had a difficult day of qualifying and was P21 at the end of the day.

For the A-Main, Magnus tested various setup changes and the car had good pace in all the finals to race with the mid field of the final. After some good starts from the back of the grid together with some tight battles he finished the race at P7.

Magnus set up can be found here.

dRC supporter and Capt'n Jack Racing pilot, Jeff Whaley podiums USGT with a huge smile on his face. This was Jeff's very first on road event and can normally be seen running oval cars near Indianapolis, IN.

dRC attends the USVTA Nats

dRC had a blast at the USVTA Nats held at Summit RC Raceway this weekend. Qualifying well early on, the team was simply unable to maintain pace as the traction levels inched ever higher - in the end, recording solid C main finishes in VTA and Stock TC with a B Main finish in USGT .. Solid effort boys; we'll get 'em next time!

dRC podiums at 2016 King of the Road Race

The annual King of the Road Race was held last weekend at Michiana RC Raceway and always brings out some good local talent. This year was no exception.

After three rounds of tight 17.5 Stock TC qualifying on the small 60'x 36' track, the grid was set for the A main:

  1. Mike Wise - Serpent USA - 46/6:02.091
  2. Brad Mergy - RC America - XRAY T4'16 - 46/6:05.548
  3. Zac Doanthen - - XRAY T4'16 - 46/6.05.708
  4. Phil Vertrees - - XRAY T4'16 - 45/6.01.464
  5. Adam Bucholtz - Serpent USA - 41/6.05.786

The Main started fast and rough as it took several laps to settle in; although not before claiming the spur gear of dRC's Zac Donathen on lap 23, fully taking him out of contention. In the end, RCA's Brad Mergy would claim victory on the day with his XRAY T4'16 at a pace of 46/6:07.345.

  1. Brad Mergy - RC America
  2. Mike Wise - Serpent USA
  3. Phil Vertrees -
  4. Adam Bucholtz - Serpent USA
  5. Zac Donathen - - DNF #serpentUSA #RCAmerica #XRAY #MRCR
