IFMAR Worlds Day 5 – Official Practice



Pit RowWe headed out the door early today so we could make the first heat at 9am. Ty, Maifield and others were locked and loaded for great opening official practice. A little back and forth put Ty up front with his 3 best placing him well and Maifield just behind. The first 5 races have the fastest drivers from open practice so right out the gate you can see all the heros. Ronnefalk, Batlle, Lee Martin and others all ran very well too with Robert Batlle taking the first round with a great 3-lap time.

The 2nd round saw David Ronnefalk come out of the gate with his first 3 laps killing it. He busted out quick time of practice and took proverbial “TQ of practice.” It was amazing to watch and was nice to see the competitive response to Ty’s driving the day before. Between the 2, it’s a toss up on who can bring more thunder run to run. Lee Martin once again ran strong with his best time of practice and Elliott Boots finally put 3 laps together at his pace. I think Lee will put in great runs in qualifying for 10 minutes. The guy is legit in my opinion.

Robert Batlle slammed through another run and I’m impressed. I thought he might be pushing a touch extra but in the end he’s a proven World Champ driver and who am I to doubt the push? Dakotah got his last 3 laps to count during round 1 today and Drew Moller busted out of a mini slump and got his runs together to get into the elite.

Jared Tebo, remember him? The Neobuggy race killer, current 2wd World Champion and the media king of the 2010 Thailand worlds… He ran well today and bumped ahead of a few including Maifield. There are so many guys with 1 minute 52 seconds in 3 laps. The elite is 1 lap 50 and 1 lap 51.

Where is the 2008 champ Hara? I don’t know. He says he’s still sleeping until the Semi… Don’t sleep to long good friend. :)

Where is the 2010 champ Cody King? His cars look awesome but he just hasn’t gotten those magical 3 to go down. In 2012 Cody struggled and then bumped into the final to be amazingly quick. He’ll be there in the end and I think they will call on that tomorrow.

After about race 6 it’s a little tough to watch but hey, that’s where I would be too. I’m one of those guys that people don’t want to watch anymore at this kind of level…..great. It’s lonely in the back half of the tournament. Your pit guys don’t even watch you and might even be reading RedRC on their phone while you are racing.

It’s amazing how the fast guys have difficulty believing the slower drivers on setup, tire selection or really anything. At races like this everyone thinks the fast guys are geniuses and the slow guys are squirrels on and off the track. It’s hard to get that respect from the upper echelon unless you can put it down on the race track. You can know everything in the world about aerodynamics, suspension dynamics and engineering but if you can’t hit a lick on the track the fast guys won’t believe you. When you are fast you can tell people you feel 2gms of weight on the track and they believe you. When you are slow nobody believes you can feel anything.

Speed is everything. When you can drive, you are funnier, better looking, down to earth, everyone’s buddy, setup god, aerodynamic genius and part time engineer and life of the party. When you speak people listen, when you are having a party everyone attends and when you go to eat everyone wants to be at your table. “You are the man” You roll with a deep entourage and plenty of people trying to snag a piece of your success. This is what you see at the worlds and everyone rides these guys coat tails until they no longer have the magic. Enjoy the short ride.

It’s ok to be slow. It’s ok to be ugly, not funny or eating alone at the restrauant. As long as you are having a good time, that’s what it’s all about. You don’t need to search out the support of the heros. Do your own thing, learn things for yourself, find a good group to hang with and get better. When the heros decide you know what you are talking about, you are improving. Congrats! Enjoy this as the longer ride.

R/C is strange, we really have very little technical track data at an event like this and all we can go on is driver feel, lap times and what they say. We have multiple sets of eyes on the vehicles and sometimes guys like me trying to get a grasp on the situation. It’s been my experience that drivers gravitate toward the product / setups they have their best runs with not necessarily what functioned better. They believe in luck, confidence and what keeps their heads from falling off or what prevents them from the ill fated…blow out run.

I’m here to tell you that the fast guys don’t know everything. They have practical experience, a massive load of driving talent and at some point or another conquered the mental game. Once you have those things, you are a fast guy and what you says matters. The next level is building a support structure around you that you can trust or rely on. Parents, spouse, mechanics, minions, sugar daddy’s and cheerleaders. Once you sell them on your ability and confidence, you have your support team.

More than anything, this is a sport that challenges you mentally. The mentally strong get the job done on a continued basis. To be the best or even decent you need to conquer the mental game first. Before the car settings, before the tires and before the engine you need to be able to log consistency from yourself. Mental power….

But does 3 laps make you the best? Does 10 minutes make you the best? Does 30 minutes make you the best? Does 60 minutes make you the best? I saw some guys today trying their hardest to fit in with the 3 lap heros. I saw pit guys so energized over hanging on for 3 laps that it was actually fun to watch. I saw guys at the bottom of scoring shoot to the top because they pulled off the 3 laps on their last 3 laps. Zero to hero! It was exciting to watch from the pits as crew and drivers hit high-fives afterwards to celebrate. But, there is really no pressure here right?

Are they the real deal or are they impostors? What will separate the men from the boys? More time required.

Jared Tebo race report


 

Italy WC practice report



Practice is all over here in Sicily. It was quite a bit of running, but honestly, I am happy we had so much. The track is really fun, but it is so different than what I’m used to. Super high grip, super fast, and many sweeping turns.

First day of practice was rough. We had a delayed start as the track and IFMAR had some disagreements. We had a 5 minute and a 12 minute, then they decided to run the first 5 minute practice that was canceled after it got dark. The lights were not good, and the practice was a disaster. I needed to test a new engine, and I hit a crashing car on my second lap and it broke my shock. I drove 3 minutes with 3 shocks just to check the engine. After the first day I was not very comfortable at all.

Day two was not too much better, as far as my speed goes. My new engine was very good, but my driving was struggling. The track was so high grip and so fast. I was getting better each run, but was still not too fast.

Before the final practice of the day, my pit man, Joe, got to the track. He had some passport issues and was delayed a couple days. I made some shock changes for the final practice, and went worse. I was pretty frustrated that I was crashing a lot and having slow lap times.

Day 3 of practice was here, and I was still working on changing my setup. I’m trying follow the changes that David Ronnefalk is doing, but I was still not comfortable. I decided to try car #2 and I was testing another engine, and they both felt good. I was very happy to already have two engines that were running good, and this car seemed better, and was not destroyed like my first car. First run was pretty good, my fastest consecutive 3 laps so far. I was in the top 5 in P1. P2 I made some more changes, and went about the same speed as the first, but most guys went faster. I was still about .7 seconds off in my best lap time. Final practice I tested my 4th engine and again it was good, but I liked the other style, as this was too smooth on the bottom. My top 3 laps dropped down a little, but I was gaining a little more consistency.

Between practice rounds, we drove up into the cliffs and it was amazing. The scenery was beautiful and driving was pretty fun, roads were really tight, really sharp turns, and steep. We checked out some areas and then got some great pizza on the beach.

So far at the end of each day I’ve been around 10th or so, not at all where I want. The top 5 have been much faster than me.

That night the Maxima Fuel guys took Joe and I out to dinner. It was a really great night. We had a ton of fun playing around 100 races of Draw Race…..amazing game by the way. Food was great too.

For the final practice day, the controlled practice day, I needed to pick up my speed and settle on a comfortable setup, I was running out of time. I put in what I felt was my best engine and made a shock change for today. P1 was good and I was 7th fastest. My best lap got a little better, but still not fast enough. I wanted to be in the low 37’s, but I was in the high 37’s with a best if 37.6.

For the final practice I went back to some smaller sway bars and did some major diff oil changes. First lap of practice my car felt sooooooooooo much better and I knew I finally found my setup. I felt really comfortable, fast, and confident finally. I got my fast lap down to 37.1 and did my best 3 lap time. I wasn’t able to use all my best laps in the 3, they only used the second five minutes of the practice to time. I ended up 5th overall for the final practice. I feel my speed is there now and I’m ready for qualifying to start.
After practice we had opening ceremonies.

All that was fun and catching up with all my international friends. Now I’m tired and ready for bed. Been great to Skype with my family everyday, and it’s all good news at the home front. The baby boy is still cooking in the oven and Rosalynn is taking good care of Mommy. Miss you guys like crazy! Thanks to all my great sponsors, and all my amazing fans…..I’m excited to have practice finished, and now the event is really up and running. God Bless you all and I’ll update after qualifying. Check into my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for daily updates on my trip. Ciao

Ty Releases his Signature D8T to the World!



The Ultimate Truggy
Developed by the Ultimate Racer

Ty Tessmann has been hard at work racing and improving the D8T over the past couple of years, and we're proud to announce the D8T Tessmann Edition! With the help of 'Team Tessmann' (dad Gord and mother Leann), Ty has steadily updated and refined the D8T to make it almost a whole new truck.

With a huge number of racing tweaks to make it win at the highest level, Ty has made the D8T his own, and along the way has claimed major wins and A-main results with his D8T Tessmann Edition, including The Dirt Nitro Challenge and the Pro-Line Dual! The D8T Tessmann Edition is fully refined to be faster than anything else available, more durable than ever and with better grip all around - it'll help you tame any track you take it to!



This is the only truggy to bear Ty's name, so you are guaranteed a kit with not just a winning pedigree, but with Ty's own personal touches: his choices of upgrades and improvements, his selection of tuning adjustments and his own stamp of approval.

The same truck that Ty uses to dominate race tracks around the world can now be yours! Ty (and the rest of Team Tessmann) not included.
