Hello All

   A small review from Copa Mitad del Mundo.

  A very fun nitro race, for 1/10 electric not so fun, my 419X didn't make it back in one peace.

    There was complaints about my motor being to fast, in a open mod class? I didn't understand. So they told me to slow it down. Then the taking out began. Also I managed to TQ two of the three qualifiers and started the main in the 8th position. In the first main I slowed down for a car in front of me to prevent contact, unfortunately the driver behind me didn't, my car didn't survive the impact. At that point I didn't participate for the rest of the race to much frustration.

   My experience wasn't all bad, my 419X was amazing on foam tires. I use the same setup as the Reedy Race. Car worked well, it was fast and easy to drive. 

Check out the picture of the damage in the gallery.

I wanted to let everyone know of the upcoming 2017 Arizona State On-Road Championships hosted by ASR in Mesa, AZ the weekend of November 4th-November 6th 2016.  Check out the flyer below, looking forward to seeing you there!

 Hello All

    Copa Mitad del Mundo is a nitro race that is held each year, in Quito the capital of Ecuador. The Mitad del Mundo stands for the  Middle of the World Cup. This will be my second time racing. Being a nitro race and running a non Tamiya car, I had nothing to share, fortunately this year there is an electric class, were I will be running the TRF419X in a 8.5 turn motor limit, which is slower the what we run in mod at home. The down side is we have to run foam tire, which I have never done on TC Mod. This will be a challenge and I hope fun to learn something new. I'll keep you posted.
