Carson reports on round three of the Jimmy Babcock Racing League series – held at Rainman’s Hobbies in this past weekend 5th & 6th May – where he took the TQ and Win in 4WD open buggy.
2WD – DEX210
I had a good weekend with the DEX210 except for some bad luck in the main event. The track was blue groove and high bite, so I did end up running the DEX210 in the 4-gear Mid-Motor configuration. In qualifying I had some bad luck in the first round followed by some good luck in the 2nd round qualifying me 5th overall. In the main I got off to a good start and was running in second about a straight away ahead of the rest of the field and a straight away behind the TQ Frank Root. Something must have clicked at the 3 minute mark because the turbo came on and I started reeling in Frank fast. I was able to make a move and pass him for the lead, then we went back and fourth quite a bit until the last lap where I started pushing too hard and flew off the track! After I finally got back on the track I was in the 5th position where I would finish.
4WD – DEX410v3
From start to finish my 4wd was awesome! In qualifying I was able to TQ over home-town hero Zack Rogers by 10 seconds! I started first on the grid in the main event and never looked back. When the dust settled I was able to run a perfectly clean 6 minutes and win by a lap over the whole field! This win helped me extend my points lead in the series, so now I have a comfortable cushion between 2nd place.
Setups will be online soon!
