Event: Short Course Nationals Warmup
Location: R/C Madness Enfield, CT
Date: July 22
Classes Entered: Modified 2wd Short Course, Modified 4wd Short Course
On July 22nd I, along with Pro-Line team mate Mike Aliberti, attended the Short Course Nationals Warmup race at R/C Madness in Enfield, CT. Upon arriving at the track we were greeted with one of the coolest layouts I’ve been to in a while. The R/C Madness crew put together a very fun and challenging layout on their huge outdoor track. At first the layout looked a little intimidating with several triples, a large double, a rhythm section and monster berm, but after a few practice laps I was comfortable and really began to have fun. The layout flows very nice and can be very fast. The track surface is pretty typical of the New England tracks with a hard packed base with some fluff on top. Traction varies from low to medium depending how much water is on the track.
After 3 rounds of qualifying I was 3rd in 4wd and 2nd in 2wd with Mike taking the TQ in 2wd. At the start of the 2wd main a driving error put me all the way back to 9th place. I was able to fight my way back up to finish 3rd while Mike walked away with the win. The 4wd main was very close with the top 5 guys within seconds of each other for the majority of the race. I was able to advance to 2nd place but unfortunately on the last lap fell back to 3rd where I finished.
Mike and I both used M4 HoleShots mounted on +3mm F11 wheels on the front and rear of our 2wd trucks and in 4wd I used M4 Blockades on F11 wheels. Both vehicles were topped with #3355-00 Flo-Tek bodies, Chris Cristo.
