Serpent race report

 

1/8 Electric European Championships



The first ever Efra 1/8 Electric Buggy European Championships where held last weekend in Fehring, Austria. On Friday it was 5 Rounds of practice. The track got really rough and had high grip on some sections, which made a tricky to find a good setup with my Serpent Cobra B-e 2.1

It got better and better during the day and laptimes improved. Tire selection was between Pro-Line Lockdown or Suburbs both in X2 compound. My Team Orion R8.1 and 1900Kv motor had more than enough power to handle the extreme conditions. Qualifying started on Saturday with 4 Rounds, best 2 counted. I was able to qualify 5th overall and Hupo 8th.

The used a mix from Nitro and Electric for the finals. First a semi final (a,b,c), where the best 4 drivers bumped up into the triple A-Main finals. We had both good runs and qualified 2nd and 11th for the main. A1 was going good and I finished a solid 2nd place. A2 was another good race in 2nd/3rd place until 2 laps before the end, when another driver tried a move, but crashed into me. Which left me only finish 4th, as he didn’t waited. A3 David, Robert and me still had the chance to take the overall championship. My start was pretty good, stayed in 2nd, but some mistakes from us costs us all chances and Robert could take the win.

Overall I finished 3rd and another podium this year. Hupo came home in 8th overall.

JConcepts Striker RC8B3 Body

 

JConcepts New Release – Striker RC8B3 Body

To deliver a quick attack, look no further than the Striker body for the RC8B3. The hottest new 1/8th buggy has captured the market with performance and reliability deserves an equally striking body. The Striker body samples elements from its famous relatives the Finnisher and Silencer bodies but packs a slightly refined image. Used by select Team Associated drivers during the ROAR Fuel Off-Road Nationals, the initial impression was the silky smooth and balanced aero characteristics.

It all starts with a drop-fit design which wraps the B3’s chassis layout like a glove. The offset of the race proven shell provides a compact fit for fuel tank, linkage and air filter assembly which drivers fully appreciate after a complete trim and paint. The heavy channeling on the front windshield and upper cab keeps the Striker aligned at high-speed while the side-pods have multiple hard-edge angles that spill off neatly into 90 degree side-panels. Just behind the engine head, a sleek up-rising flows from the body like running water.

The clear body set includes window templates, decal sheet and backed by JConcepts customer support and racing team lineage. Inflict a direct hit to the competition; go with the Striker body by JConcepts – World Proven Innovation and Design.

Features:
· Original – JConcepts Striker design
