Latest from Tekin:
The 2013 Motorama event wrapped up this past weekend. Held out in Harrisburg, PA drivers from all over the US converged to the event to battle it out for victory. One of the biggest races of the year in the east with well over 700+ entries! 2 tracks, huge epic battles, tons of fun.
"I had a perfect weekend out at my first ever Motorama event where I was able to TQ and win 4x4 SC and qualify second and finish second in pro2 sc. In Pro4 my Tekin/MIP Pro4mance SCTE was unbelievably fast and pulled the fastest lap times all weekend long as well as one of two trucks that had the shear power to make the biggest jump on the track child's play, while others struggled. I was using Tekin's RX8 and Pro 4 4600KV 4 pole motor to push around my 4x4 on the grueling 1/8 scale track and the whole time the motor ran at a cool 175 degrees all weekend long geared at 39 (spur) , 15 Pinion. I'd take 2nd place in Pro 2 Mod SC for the weekend. Thank you Tekin for all the support and great products!" Matt Olson
In Pro 2 Mod SC division Tekin teammates Matt "MIP" Olson and Toddie Anderson would take the majority of the podium spots finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively! Both drivers used a Tekin RS Pro and Redline Gen 2 motor. Matt had this to say "In the Pro2 Class my truck ran great and on Motorama's small loose 1/10 scale track, less power was more! I opted to go with the 9.5 Gen 2 motor and Tekin RS Pro which was comfortable to hand and easily able to keep up with the 7.5 bottom end rip that other trucks were using."
In the 1/8 E Buggy division Tekin team drivers were once again gunning for the podium. Barry Pettit would take 2nd place overall only a few seconds back after the 10 minute battle. Tekin powered John Michael McGinty would battle hard with Anthony Mazzara and would have to settle for 4th place. Both drivers racing Tekin Rx8 and T8 equipped Mugen Mbx6 Eco's. John Michael McGinty would also take a 4th place in E Truggy after only having one race prior on the truck. Fellow Tekin teammate Mark Unrath would also take a spot in the A main along with Barry Pettit as well. Great work guys!
