TQ Racing TQ’s And Wins At CRCRC Midwest Championship

Jan 18, 2011 2 Comments by

James Raupp uses his TQ SX102w with Tekin power take the top spot in qualifying and winning two of the three A Mains in the 2wd Stock class at the CRCRC Midwest Champs.

James and 5 other TQ cars dominated the 2wd Stock field at the event, again showing that the SX10 series is the secret weapon needed to help give racers the advantage in Stock (or Spec) class racing. But it was more than the speed and consistency of the SX10 2w that help James, it was also the durability, as the final A Main saw both leaders take several tumbles on the way to the victory. Fast, Consistent, Durable and Economical – just what we are trying to produce for racers everywhere.

Johnny LoGiudice also showed the SX10 SC can run with the big boys in the Modified Short Course class, qualifying and finishing 6th in the A Main. Four different chassis manufactures were represented in the top six positions.

    They failed to mention the fact that there were at least 10 TQ cars that broke in half throughout the weekend – I carried at least 6 TQ buggies off the track over the course of the weekend with the front chassis and top deck snapped in half. The buggy can be really fast . . . . . . as long as you don’t hit anything.

    I find YoMan’s comment interesting in that he didn’t seem to mention that “other” manufacturer’s cars also broke in half, it seems the track was set up very technical with the placement and distance of the various jumps. Yes, LOTS of vehicles took a pounding and broke. James put in great runs for A1 and A3 – he deserves a LOT of credit for coming back after his A2 run, keeping his composure and taking the win! I was there for a day and a half, and only saw two cars break like that one did – one TQ and one other.

    AND yes, James with his TQ buggy ran very fast, all through qualifying and the mains.
