Kyle McBride takes NSW State Title with DNX408

Filed under: News — Stuart @ 10:18 am

The 2011 New South Wales State titles for 1/8th buggy took place this past weekend at Maitland Off-Road Radio Car Club, and Kyle McBridge brought home the victory for Team Durango.

Kyle’s Durango DNX408 hit the track for the first practice run on Thursday. Running a slightly different setup from the Neo Buggy race he’d attended a few weeks prior, we made a few more tweaks to get Kyle’s Durango dialled.

After the first qualifier Kyle placed his DNX 408 into 2nd place qualifier. A lot of Kyle’s competitors were running Truggy as well, giving them more track time and as this was a brand new lay out it was crucial to get that extra track time.  Despite the slight disadvantage in track time, Kyle was getting quicker and quicker with every run and his Durango was looking sweet for the semi final.

In Kyle’s Semi-final he was simply unstoppable, lapping the field right up to 2nd place and put in the only 39-lap run out of the two 20 minute Semi’s and taking TQ for the A-main.

Kyle had a fantastic start to lead for the first few laps until  an error into some hay bales drooped him to 6th place.  Within just 2 laps Kyle was back into 3rd place chasing down the leaders. Kyle moved up to 2nd place around the 15-20 minute mark and kept his cool, slowly catching the leader and by the 30 minute mark was 6 seconds down.  Kyle’s tyres were shot and he was wrestling the car round the track but with his consistent lapping and the dialled DNX408 he managed to take the lead with 7 minutes remaining before pulling a 20 second lead over his closest rival.
