Billy Fischer takes double win @ Arizona State Champs

Filed under: News — Stuart @ 3:43 pm


This past weekend was the Arizona State Championships in Scottsdale, AZ at SRS.  Although the grip level is usually high when the track drys out and the surface is swept. This year it was fairly cold and the moisture never got completely out of the track.  The surface became polished and the grip level was fairly low.  Team Durango’s Billy Fischer brought his DEX210, DEX410 and DESC410R to compete.

4wd Modified: TQ & WIN – DEX410
Billy started with the setup he ran at the Nationals and SIGP, just going down in shock oils between rounds 2 & 3, due to the cold weather. Billy TQ’d all four rounds of qualify which he backed up in the 8-minute long single leg A-Main – cruising to victory.

4wd SC:  TQ & WIN – DESC410R
A heavy crash in round 4 of qualifying was the only mark on a near-perfect day for the DESC410R, as Billy took the opening three rounds of qualifying for the TQ spot.  Billy was running his normal setup with no changes – only running a 550 sized motor for the first time to test.  The 8 minute main was another great test for the DESC410R and Billy brought it home ahead of former World Champion Brian Kinwald for the win.

Billy took 2nd in qualifying and 3rd overall in 2WD with the DEX210

Billy's DEX210 In practice Billy tried lots of things with the new car including different sized packs & placement, rear toe, springs and shock oil.  Once he found a setup he liked he just concentrated on learning the new car – only changing tyres during qualifying. After the four rounds had run Billy lay 2nd on the grid with the DEX210 behind TQ man Ryan Maifield.

In the triple-leg A-Main Billy changed to a larger battery pack which helped in some areas but hurt in others. in A1 Billy finished 2nd, around 4 seconds off the leader Maifield.  After taking 3rd in A2 Billy was looking for a win in A3 – 5:15 on the clock and 45 seconds left to play and Billy had lead from the start but a bad landing cost him time and two positions as he came in for another 3rd to give him 3rd overall.

An awesome weekend for Team Durango!
