Jared Tebo race report


 


Q3 Silver State 2014



Qualifying is all over here at the Silver State. The final round had highs and lows.

Q3 truggy I needed a second for the round to get overall TQ. My truck felt great and I was doing just what I needed. I was driving smart and consistent. I ran second for the whole heat, but on the last lap a truck crashed right in front of me before the step up. I had to steer to the right to miss it and I hit a bump and swapped off the track and had to get back on, and I lost 2 seconds and ended up 5th. I felt like I got robbed a little on that one, so that was frustrating. I’ll start 3rd now in the main.

Ebuggy again was really rough. Not really sure what the issue is, I just don’t feel comfortable out there. I have the same exact setup as my nitro car, but they don’t feel the same. I feel like the bumps are twice as big with my electric buggy. Maybe the weight difference in the cars. I crashed my brains out and got maybe 9th or so for the round. I’ll start 8th in the main.

Nitro buggy was last and the TQ was still up for grabs. I felt like I’ve been driving good all weekend and making good setup decisions, but I just haven’t really got that good of runs in. My engine tune has been a struggle and in bumpy conditions, that’s really tough. All I wanted was a clean run. My car felt good in warm up, but my engine was running on really bad. Brought it in, and was gonna lower the idle, but then it would drop down, and then idle back up. We just left it and I was just gonna drive through it. Had a little bobble early, but it wasn’t bad. I had a game plan on my lines, I was wanting to drive safer and run the tight lines and go a little slower speed around the track. Some insides were still smooth. It’s awkward to run outside lines because it doesn’t feel normal and the way the ruts are, if you not quite outside enough, you’ll hit some big bumps going pretty fast. You have to drive a faster speed on the outsides to make up the time. I was trying all my inside lines I spotted while watching the heats before me, but they weren’t working. The traction just felt low on the insides and I couldn’t really flow. About 3 or 4 laps in, I said to myself, “screw it, I’m blasting the outside everywhere.” And I did, I was DEEP outside line around the whole track. I got the flow and it felt way more hooked up and way smoother. I lead most the heat and took the TQ by 3 or 4 seconds. With a 3rd and a TQ, I got overall TQ as well, so I was really happy.

I’m looking forward to the mains. I’m just gonna go out and drive the best I can and try to really focus on good line choice and getting that flow. Got my nitro rides all ready to the practice in the morning and even got in some celebratory dessert!!!! YUMM

Q2 silver State 2014

Well…..Q2 wasn’t the greatest of rounds oh qualifying.

Started off with truggy. I’m really struggling with getting my engines to feel good. The tune just changes a lot, so I’m having a hard time really being in tune with the track. Again my engine seemed to get rich the first couple laps, and then get better at the end. My truck felt really good, but I had a costly crash after the whoops. There’s a big rut in the corner and it’s catching in every race it seems. Ended up 5th.

Ebuggy was similar in result. I was just pushing way to hard at the beginning and not flowing with the track. I had 3 crashes early, but then drove the second half pretty good. Ended up 7th. I need a really good run in Q3.

Nitro buggy I was really excited to run. I lightened up my diff oils and was wanting a clean run. In warm up my engine tune was changing each lap. One lap rich, one lap lean, so I didn’t know what to expect. Again on my third lap or so, I hit that rut after the whoops too fast and rolled my car while leading the heat. Then I hit a crashing car on the straight and crashed again. My car felt really good though, so I was able to come back up towards the front, but I still got a 5th for the round.

For Q3 I’m gonna try to check everything on my engines and seal everything again. I feel I’m fighting air leaks somewhere. The track is getting crazy tough, so I need a more consistent feel with my throttle. Hopefully I can sort something out. Luckily all my cars are feeling good. Ebuggy I just need to drive it better and back it down a little. Thanks for checking in and God Bless

Q1 Silver State



Started off the day with a good truggy run. I tuned my engine before the qualifier, but it warm up it was really rich feeling. Joe leaned it out, but it still felt pretty rich when the race started. I was thinking the qualifier was gonna be rough, but I just drove and a few laps in I was in the hunt for the TQ. The engine slowly got better and by the end I was going pretty good and took the TQ. I was going for it on the step up and just blasting over it all the way on the outside. Felt good to start out like that.

Ebuggy was mostly good. My car felt pretty good and I let almost the whole entire heat. I lost the lead by .3 on the second to last lap, but then I hit a rut going too fast in the front sweeper and crashed. Dropped from second to fifth on the last lap. That was kinda a bummer.

Nitro buggy I was ready for a clean run. My car felt really good, but I was struggling with my engine tune. It started out good, but a few laps in it started to feel lean and it seemed to get faster and faster as the race went on. Not really sure what’s up with the tune changing in the run so much , but I’ll keep plugging away. I lead early, but then I crashed after the whoops and then crashed a couple more time. I was fast though, and came back up to third at the end.

Pretty happy with a TQ, a 5th, and a 3rd in Q1. Gonna go out there and try to just flow around the bumps and be smoother in Q2. Thanks for checking in and God Bless.

Come Drive With Us - The Reedy Race



The Reedy Race is not just any race. It is a "bucket list" race; a race that most R/C enthusiasts dream of attending! There are two classes run at this race; the Invitation Class which is a mix of the top drivers in the World rankings as well as a few R/C Legends. The other Class is the Open Class. This race is so prestigious that a lottery drawing is conducted for participation in the open class. Only 200 racers are given the honor of competing in the event. CoryD was in attendance to document what it's like for a top-level pro, as well as the average racer to attend this storied race.

For this episode of "Come Drive With Us", we featured Ty Tessmann, one of the Worlds top Off-Road drivers. Get a behind the scenes look at Ty's experience, as well as a host of other popular drivers, at the 20th running of the Reedy Race. See what the "who's who" of R/C have to say about Mike Reedy and the awesome race he created.

Narrated by Howie Miller, one of Canada's TOP stand up comics, this episode of "Come Drive With Us" will not disappoint!

Special thanks to LiveRC for some archival footage as well as the Tessmann family for their cooperation as well as some home video of a very young Ty enjoying R/C.
