Round 4 of The Force Series:
The track started out super slick Saturday morning. Then went to high bite big time. Did we qualify well? In Ebuggy, yes I would say. Started 2nd behind Billy Easton. Before the mains, according to the LiveRc list we would run starting at 5pm. So we changed sway bars, springs, hubs ect. We were traction rolling all afternoon. Then they did a couple of mains updates. Turned out we would start late in the night. Well as the temp dropped quick, so did the traction of the track. But using the new AKA P1 tire in soft compound the Ebuggy was decent and good enough the take...
Serpent introduces the new Serpent F110 SF4 Formula 1 car. The next evolution of the Serpent F110 platform takes F1 1/10 racing to new levels of performance. The F110 SF4 is based on the racing experience gained over the last 2 years of racing IDFM, ETS, TiTC, CETC and races all over the world.
Last weekend was held the Elite Race 2018 at Veture RC Indoor track, an astroturf bumpy and really narrow track. Great Indoor facility with a really nice environment and level with 60 pilots in 4x2 and 20 Short Course.
The event held by the MORBC club in Perth, would go down as one of the better worlds I have been to. Of course there have been many good ones, but I have to say, these guys did a really great job. They had a really great group of guys running the broadcast, scoring, concession stand, and the track crew also did a fantastic job.
We had basically 6-10 practices on the track before actually started qualifying, so that was nice, considering I have never been to this track previously. I started with my standard setup, and began trying to tweak it to see if we could improve for this large, high speed,...
On the Pro Truggy class Kyle Phillipps dominated the class with a solid TQ run by his Cobra 811T-TE on all the qualifying rounds and went to win the race from tone to tone finishing multiple laps ahead of the field

Perfect race weekend in China was able to TQ qualifying with 1st in all 3rounds, then won the first two finals to take the win!
We arrived at the track on Thursday before the two international practise days to prepare the cars from the flight to Miami. We get also the handout tires for practise and the maxima controlled fuel.
So from the beginning it was very difficult for me to find the perfect setup, because the handout tires were are lot harder in the rear. I tested everything and also with great team work we could collect some workable things on our new 750.
1ST 2 DAYS
We arrived at the Homestead track to find that everything was well sorted and laid out ready for all the racers to hit the track for practice the club had done a good job to prepare the track and pitting area . For 10th this track is probably to big but the little engines all seemed up to the job of making a LOT of rpm its always amazing how good these little engines are. I picked up my control tyres and with our new serpent s750 having never turned a wheel before the worlds we got straight down to testing , As with any new car we knew it would be hard to find a good set up as you have...
