Winter Indoor Series Rd2 – Report



Posted: 12 Nov 2018 12:17 PM PST


This past weekend saw the running of the Winter Indoor Series round 2 in Sundsvall, Sweden. The track was on the small side but made for good racing and fast lap times. The day started off with two reseeding practice runs and in 2WD it was Elias Johansson at the top with teammate Lukas Larsson in 2nd and Martin Johansson Nielsén in 3rd. In 4WD it was once again Elias Johansson who was the king of the hill with Martin Johansson Nielsén 2nd and Felix Angseryd 3rd.


In qualifying it was again Elias Johansson who dominated 2WD with the TQ in the first two rounds with local hero Viktor Östling in 2nd in both of the first two rounds. The third round saw Viktor at the top of the timing sheets with Martin Johansson Nielsén taking second. The standings after 2WD qualifying would be Elias 1st, Viktor 2nd and Martin 3rd.


4WD qualifying saw Elias being Elias and taking the two first qualifiers with Martin Johansson Nielsén 2nd in the first round and Felix Angseryd runner-up in the second one so it was all to play for 2nd place in the last round of qualifying. Felix Angseryd was the one standing strong by TQing the last round to line up 2nd for the triple A-main.


The 2WD A-main saw Elias (Team Associated) winning the two first mains with Viktor 2nd in both of them. So for the last A-main the two other podium spots could be filled with four different drivers. The last main saw Viktor Östling (Team Associated) dominate and securing 2nd place overall with Martin Johansson Nielsén (Xray) taking 3rd overall.


In 4WD the top 3 was going to be about three persons, Elias Johansson (Team Associated), Felix Angseryd (Xray) and Martin Johansson Nielsén (Xray). Elias repeated his 2WD masterclass in 4WD by winning the first two mains with Felix Angseryd taking 2nd in both. This meant that Elias skipped driving the last main so 2nd place was still open, regardless the pressure Felix Angseryd took a tone-to-tone win and securing the 2nd place overall with Martin Johansson Nielsén rounding of the podium in 3rd.

Shepherd Velox V10 Nineteen 200mm nitro on-road kit



Posted: 12 Nov 2018 06:10 AM PST


Following the “Nineteen” conversion kit for the Velox V10 1/10th 200mm nitro on-road kit, Shepherd now also announced the full Nineteen specification car kit. The car features a new rear axle geometry, making it more controllable when braking even under difficult track conditions or when hard braking is required. This was achieved by a wider rear lower wishbone distance and an updated upper wishbone mount with optimised upper camber link positions. The updated lower wishbone mounts are manufactured from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium while the upper wishbone mounts are milled from high-quality German carbon fibre material. The lower wishbones have been completely redesigned to match the updated geometry and are moulded from high quality plastics. The rear anti-roll bar linkage is located slightly more to the outside of the wishbone for improved responsiveness and softer steering. Furthermore, the 7075-T6 aluminium chassis of the 2019 car has been optimised. Thanks to improved production and milling techniques and a slightly different layout, the chassis bends significantly less, even under heavy loads, which significantly increases its durability. An improved exhaust pipe holder makes the use of different pipe/manifold combinations of all manufacturers significantly easier and more comfortable and high-quality ball bearings with full metal seals complete the changes to the new car. The kit has already proven its capabilities by taking the 3rd place overall at the recent IFMAR 200mm Worlds in Miami, Florida is the hands of Shepherd pilot Edu Escandón.

Louth RCCC Schumacher Winter Series Rd2 – Report



Posted: 12 Nov 2018 02:34 AM PST


The second round of the Schumacher Winter Series presented by the Louth Radio Control Car Club was held this past weekend. 60 entries across four classes made for a competitive field spread out over the 13.5 Blinky class, 17.5 Open, GT12 and Tamiya Truck. In 13.5 Blinky Chris Lovely was able to take the TQ spot with a commanding pace with his Xray as debutant Craig Mawson would line up 2nd with his Schumacher, Andrew Green 3rd, Championship leader Nathan Winyard 4th and Mikey Mansell and his Capricorn 5th. Chris was able to bridge a gap after the first few corner tussle which saw 2nd, 3rd and 4th swap on many occasions. Ultimately Nathan Winyard would power through to 2nd, and Andrew Green would secure the final spot on the podium.


In 17.5 Jason Lovely would continue on from his previous rounds performance and take a secure TQ. Though it was super tight for 2nd on the grid with Stewart McLeod 2nd, current champion Andrew Babb 3rd, James Beckett in 4th and Peter Covell 5th. A slow start for Jason would see the first few corners be a tight affair with cars swapping places, but he would get back his 1st spot and put distance into the field. The battle for 2nd raged on between three cars all race, with Stewart McLeod breaking free, and James Beckett holding onto third from Andrew Babb and Peter Covell.


In GT12 more entries and competition would see Luke Eyre secure TQ, seasoned pro Russell Woodhouse would secure 2nd, from Lee Stokes and Gary Williamson, with Paul Vincent and Lee Ward making up this a final. The fight for 1st was close all race never more then a few car lengths apart, but Luke would hold on and manage the gap to bring home the win. Russell would have a comfortable 2nd, Lee Stokes would hold onto his 3rd spot.


Tamiya Euro Trucks is always a fun class to watch with good fun on the track. Mitch Fiddling would secure the top spot for this time around, ahead of Jason Lovely. John Yarnell would secure 3rd, returning Richard Howells 4th and debutant in the class Tom Hardy and Chris Chapman. Mitch would keep it tight for the first few laps before breaking away to take the overall, Jason Lovely would have to settle for a comfortable 2nd, John Yarnell would work hard for 3rd spot but retain it. Tom Hardy would come home in 4th from Chris Chapman and Richard Howells.


The next round of the series is on December 9th.
