Team Serpent America
Hello Jader Lopez !
Great to have you on the American Serpent Team !
Q: Where do you live, whats your age and profession ?
A: I live in Miami, FL. Im 32 years old and I own and shipping/courier company.
Q: What and where is your home track ?
A:I have 2 home tracks, one is Mills Pond in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. The other is Coral Springs RC in Coral Springs, FL
Q: How long are you racing rc cars and what was your 1st rc car ?
A:I have been racing for 5 years. My first car was a Factory Team T4. I raced it in my first race which was Regionals in 2009. It was a big event so I would sit for like 4 hours in between qualifiers because I only had one class. I ended up finishing 5th in my class and the next day I bought a few other cars to keep me busy the next race.
Q: What do you like most about rc car racing ?
A: What I enjoy most about RC except the obvious doing good at a race, we all love that. I love the fun times in the pits with good friends. To me its important to have a good time off the track because its so easy to have a bad race day sometimes. But if you a good time in the pits with some buddies then it wasnt too bad.
Q: Which classes will you run for Serpent ?
A: I will be running all of Serpents off road line, both 1/8th scale and 1/10 scale. I also plan on running a little bit of on road when I have time.
Q: Which is your favourite class ?
A: My favorite class is 2wd buggy. I think this class is what really teaches you how to drive and setup a car.
Q: Which power sources will you run in EP and GP ?
A; For EP Im using Team Powers speed controls and motors. For GP I will be running OS Engines.
Q: Which main events will you race in 2015 ?
A: For 2015 I have planned to race the Jconcepts Supercup State Series, AMS, Southern Nationals, Wicked Weekend, and Fall Brawl at Badlands. I want to try to make Nationals in California but it all depends on work.
Good luck in 2015 season then !!
