last week Gerd and Jörn attended the Sunpadow GP in Xiamen. Its the same venue which will host the 1/10 Electric World Championships later this year. The race was 1/8 Buggy Nitro and Electric. 2 days of free practice made for lots of track time. The track was very slippery and got bumpy at some sections. Overall the new SRX8E and SRX8 performed super good. We opted to run the block layout for the SRX8E as it had a better balance at this track then the saddle layout.
Qualifying went almost perfect with TQ ing 4 out of 5 Rounds in each class. It was really nice as the Nitro TQ made it directly in the 60min main.
I was able to win A1 and A3 in Electric class. The 60 minute Nitro main started out good, after 10 minutes I was almost a lap in front of 2nd place. We pitted at 8.45 which saved 1 stop from the other guys, thanks to my Maxima engine and fuel. After that I hold the same gap for the rest of the 50 minutes to take another win.
Perfect weekend with 2x TQ and 2x 1st.
Thanks to all my sponsors and pit crew who helped me all week.
Setup will be send shortly.
