LUTZ TAKES TWO AT FLOWOOD R/C Image 2

This past weekend headed down to Flowood Mississippi to the only city owned track in the country. It was a great indoor facility with the best ventilation of any indoor track I have ever been. There was 250 entires over a variety of classes. I raced my standard 4 (Nitro Buggy and Truggy as well as E-Buggy and 4WD SC.)

This indoor clay track is what the Durango 4wd SC is made for. The truck was dialed the entire time on this track and I easily took TQ and victory putting in a lap time in the main that was nearly on par with my other 1/8th cars!

In Truggy I struggled a little on finding that perfect set-up for this semi tight indoor track. By the 3rd qualifier we had it pretty much down and I was able to take the TQ of rd 3 which put me 2nd overall behind Drake. In the main I was having some sort of carb / engine issue where the thing just wouldn’t come down off idle. When I let off the gas it would just keep racing forward so for 45 minutes I drove basically with the brakes and it just didn’t allow me to be competitive to Drake. I still managed a 2nd but about 2.5 laps down. Overall the truck was great thought.

In Nitro Buggy I had some electronic issues in Q1. A few to many mistakes in Q2 putting me 3rd and I was able to TQ rd 3. Overall qualified 2nd behind Drake again. In the main my car was dialed. Drake and I pulled from the field and had them about 2 – 3 laps down at the 25 minute mark. For most of that time I had held Drake about 5 seconds back as we put in blistering lap after lap. However my power plug connection would come undone at that time and happen again putting me a few laps behind Drake but still in 2nd. However with 8 minutes to go the rear diff stripped out. The screws on the clam shell had come loose for some reason and it ended the run for me.

In E-buggy my DEX408 worked well. I was able to take TQ and victory with it. At the end of the mains I let a few other people drive the buggy and they were all very impressed with it and I know a couple of them are sold on the Durango now! #

Overall I was pleased with all the vehicles. I have a quick turnaround this week heading to Texas Thursday for a R/C Pro event running 4 classes again!
