Limited Traction takes one-two in Hyper Drift night comp

Jul 31, 2011 2 Comments by

A short while ago I got a chance to check out one of Hyper Drift’s awesome events – specifically, the McCarthy Ranch night competition I posted a couple weeks ago.  The entire HD crew was in attendance and they put together an absolutely incredible, fully-lit layout complete with grass infields and a scale garage row.

Competition in both the Novice and Expert classes was heated, and there were loads of entries.  Chrysander and James, both from Limited Traction, dominated in Expert and took home first and second place respectively, followed by Harris from Team Dori in third.  Novice was led by AJ in first place, followed by Mike from FullyLocked in second, and rounded out with Josh in third.  All six podium finishers received trophies, prizes, and of course all-important bragging rights.  Congrats guys!

About the author

I got my first RC car way back in 1985 - a Tamiya Wild One - and have been involved in the hobby ever since. I've made every mistake in the book and loved every minute of it... Well, except for that one nitro engine I could never get to run properly. I've bought and sold more vehicles than I care to count, from cars and trucks to planes, helicopters, boats, and more. I'm a dedicated basher, certified bench racer, and collector of random tools. My very favorite part of the hobby is fixing things I've broken.

    Tom, that’s really cool. I know not everyone has seen a lot of this kind of setup, but it’s really cool on the scale modeling end of things. Great pictures too. I like the Garage and store front window view with the rim stand.

    Good stuff Tom, I enjoyed reading this one and shared it with some of the drifting friends that I have up here in Canada.

      Thanks Christopher, glad you like the drift coverage. There’s plenty more where that came from!

      All of the HD guys are a blast to work with and are really into their sport. They also provided the killer daytime shots from the setup and practice session, but I filled in the nighttime shots. That garage row was nothing short of amazing to see with all those great scale cars parked out front.
