P-L Driver Daniel Grobe Podiums at Southern Summer Payout Series on Pro-Line Pin Points

Sep 18 2017

This past Saturday was Round 4, final round of the Southern Summer Payout Series, which has traveled across 3 states in our division. Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas. Thornhill Racing Circuit has a new turf track, after weather destroyed the previous covered clay track. All new turf for everyone, the challenge would be how to handle the extreme rise in grip from the previous events.

It was the hottest day of the year this past Saturday, with temperatures reaching 106 degrees.

I used  Pro-Line Pin Point Z3 Rear, and Pro-Line Wedge Fronts.

Qualifying
In 2WD, I was having temperature issues on the motor, trying to find the sweet spot, in gearing, and speed, as well as temperature of the motor. i finally got the motor temps down during practice, but noticed right off in the first qual, my speed was way down compared to everyone else. i finished 9th overall for the first round. Car motor faded dramatically the last minute of the race. I was approached by a guy who offered to run a motor he had and said it was much faster than any Tekin motor out there. i decided to use it, and in the 2nd qualifier, i went and put a a 3rd overall. on TQ pace but late mistakes on my part, kept me a 3rd. in Q3, i was able to be first overall for the round, but no one seemed on pace for Tq. I used Pro-Line Pin Point Z3 rear, and Pro-Line Wedge fronts. Tire wear at 0, i used these tires the rest of the day.

In 4WD, i was set for Race 12. i was watching the Live RC program on my phone, and saw race 11 was on the track. turns out, race 11 was actually race 12, due to allowing races on the bigger 1/8th track. i didnt get to race the first round. In q2, i just wanted to get a solid run, car was good, and felt weird on the jumps, seemed bottoming up the face, and landing long was not good for it. i actually broke a post on the ESC. for q3, i put in an older TEkin RS pro speed control, also raised the shock oil just a little bit, and stiffer springs, suggested by Lance and went and put a good run in, fastest lap, as well as TQ. Pro-Line Pin Point Rear Z3, and Wedge 4WD Fronts.

Mains
2WD A1, got off to a good start, made a mistake on the first table top, and dropped pretty far back, battled back to 4th, where i was for most of the Main, late mishaps with 2nd and 3rd, allowed me to pass for 2nd. where i stayed until the last lap, where I got caught up with a marshal in the middle of the track, then casing a jump, dropping to finish 4th.
2WD A2, again, good start, better start actually because the TQ made the mistake on the start, i was able to get a pass on both, to take the lead, Austin Jeffries, chased me down, and made another mistake late on a table top, where i was able to open a gap of 6.5 seconds. taking the win by 3.5-seconds in the end. Overall, I finished 2nd for the event, and 2nd in points in the series, behind Austin.

4WD A1, starting in front, I was able to get a clean start, some early pressure from 2nd, would put on some close racing for the first few laps, then he crashed, and left me to an easy win.

4WD A2, again, another good start, and out front for the whole race, came up on lap traffic, where i had to check up on a jump, ended up casing a big triple, where the B wire on my motor broke from the ESC. I was able to limp the car around for the final 2-minutes, finished 4th. That would cost me the win, I finished 2nd overall for the event, and 2nd in points for the series. The points were tied going into this event.

Thanks to Pro-Line, RCAmerica, Xray for the support this year.

P-L Driver Mike Eglberger TQ and Win at PA State Champs on Pro-Line Positrons

Sep 17 2017

eglberger-PAChamps17_2

This past weekend I was able to attend the PA State Champs hosted by WOCRC Raceway. I chose to run E-Buggy and 4WD SCT.

Pro-Line Products used: M4 Electrons, M4 Positrons, V2 Velocity Wheels, F-11 Zero-offset wheels, Trifecta Lexan Wing

eglberger-PAChamps17_1

Qualifying went very well for both classes throughout the weekend. I was able to TQ round one of E-Buggy, but during round two I was edged out of the TQ spot by 2 seconds with both of us improving on the previous TQ time placing me 2nd on the starting grid for Sundays Mains.
Qualifying for SCT I was able to set the round one TQ, and also improve the TQ during round three placing myself starting 1st during Sundays Mains.

Going into the Mains I had confidence in my cars and was really hoping for the best.

The SCT Main went very well with being able to stay out front uncontested tone to tone and take home the win. E-Buggy would be a little different of a story due to a mistake on my part early on that would drop me away from the lead pack. Unfortunately some more bad luck that I had during qualifying carried over into the Main as I had a cell drop in my battery causing me to drop out early and be unable to finish the race.

Overall I had a great time this year and last year at this race and wanted to say Thank You again to Jeremy McGuigan for organizing this race and the entire WOCRC crew for never missing a beat and for having such a great hidden gem of a track. I would also really like to thank my sponsors for all of the help, support, awesome products, and to my friends keeping racing as fun and enjoyable as it is.
