Tekin powers big wins in the NCT Series!
This past weekend marked Round #5 of 6 in the Northwest Championship Tour held in Lewiston, Idaho. The track this year offered plenty with elevation changes, big jumps and rough conditions which tested both the driver and vehicle.
Team Driver Tim Hethcox would deliver big in the 1/10 portion of the event by taking TQ and winning the first two A-Mains of 4x4 SC with his Tekin RX8/Pro 4 equipped Losi SCTE. Tim wasn't done there as he was able to take the overall wins in 2wd SC and stadium truck. Tim also managed to pull off an impressive second overall in 2wd buggy despite some issues. Once the 1/10 mains were finished it was onto the 1/8 vehicles.
The E-Buggy class all year in the NCT series has been one of the most competitive classes the NW has ever seen and dominated by Tekin with round #5 being no different. Newly signed Team Driver Nick Buechler would start up front with his RX8/T8 2050 powered AE buggy but after the triple A-Mains were finished it was Tekin's very own Jeremy "PG" Potter with his HB Ve8 and RX8/T8 1900 taking the top spot and another Tekin podium sweep in the E-Buggy class.
