Sean Miles reports about his win at OCRC with his X3E Sabre
Reported by DJ - Today was the second time that I took out my New "OFNA X3 Sabre-E" 1/8 buggy. I was a good day. On Sundays at OCRC they run 3 qualifiers and a Main. I'm proud to say for not racing for 3 months I'm on my way. I finished first in all three qualifiers. Today I was able to try a setup that was made last Wednesday but was not ran until today. Race one I finished first with 13 laps in 5:04:169. My fastest lap was 21.639, my top five laps averaged 21.841, and my top ten laps average 22.455 seconds. After my first qualifier, DJ my Team Manager from "OFNA" saw somethings that could help the car run smoother. So we move the positions of the shocks on the rear arms as well as change the shock springs. The second race I was able to adjust the ride height of the buggy right where I need it. So I ran a extra lap. I did 14 laps in 5:23:403 , My fastest lap was 21.672, and the top five average laps where 22.081. I was more consistent with the new set up. The car landed better and was more planted to the track. In the A-Main I had a very good start. I got caught up in some lap traffic and there brothers racing and of course one was faster than the other and I was getting beat up pretty bad while trying to lap the slower brother, but once I got clear I playing catch-up and kept racing. The faster brother put about 7 seconds on me with time winding down but my laps times were better and I was closing but I thought with only two laps to go I would be holding on to second but the leader made that slight mistake for me to get him on the last lap for the win.
Congrats Sean on your win with your new ride hope to see more of those wins and a fresh new body to go with it.
