VP-Pro driver Andrew Smolnik files the following race report:
The JBRL Rd 5 was held at Pegasus Hobbies this past weekend. Pegasus Hobbies is one of the nations highest rated hobby shops, and nestled between their well stocked hobby shop and the interstate 10 fwy lies a quaint off road track fit for any size competition. The JBRL rnd 5 gathered a very respectable 175+ entries considering the Ifmar 1/10th off road World Championships are taking place in Finland and this being the weekend after the highly attended Hot Rod Shootout. With that said, the competition was close and yielded great battles throughout the day.
The track was hard packed and kept watered. I ran VP PRO 1/10th Buggy Turbo Trax tires in both 2wd buggy and 4wd buggy throughout the day with great success! I took the Top Qualifying position and the win in both 2wd unlimited 17.5 buggy and 4wd modified.
The TQ Racing buggies powered by Protek batteries and Viper motors worked great all weekend and I’d like to thank all of my sponsors for their support:

- Viper RC
- VP PRO USA
