A very busy weekend of RC racing occurred. Kicking it off, Spencer Rivkin leads ProTek RC with 4WD Mod Buggy win at JConcepts NCTS4 while Joe Bornhorst and Ryan Lutz post victories at LCRC’s North East Showdown.
Team Associated’s Spencer Rivkin led the ProTek RC Pro Race Team in this weekend’s racing action, winning the 4wd Mod Buggy title and finishing third in 2wd Mod Buggy at the JConcepts NCTS4 Northwest Carpet Nationals at Northwest Hobbies in Albany, Oregon. On the other end of the country, Joe Bornhost posted wins in Expert Electric Buggy and Electric Truggy and ProTek RC teammate Ryan Lutz took home the top spot in Expert Nitro Buggy in the North East Showdown at LCRC Raceway in Oakland Mils, PA.
Rivkin battled a talent-laden field to climb to the top of the box in this NCTS4 Round 2 weekend of the four-round 1:10 national off-road carpet series, outlasting the likes of Broc Champlin, Ryan Cavalieri, Dakota Phend, and ProTek RC teammates Ty Tessmann and Ryan Maifield, who finished second through sixth, respectively, in the triple A main format. Sparked by the ProTek RC 2S 130C 4800mAh Shorty Battery Pack, Rivkin won A2 and finished second in A1 and A3 to take the overall win with his Team Associated B74.1 on a JConcepts tire combination of Fuzz Bites in the front and Nessi Carpet 2.2s in the rear.
Bornhorst piloted his Sworkz vehicles on JConcepts tires to win in both featured electric classes behind ProTek RC battery power. He took the top spot in Expert eBuggy over Lutz, who was TQ and eventual second place finisher in the 10-minute A main. Bornhorst went with the ProTek RC 4S 130C 6400mAh Shorty Battery Pack to provide the power in the challenging conditions dealt (impending thunderstorms) in the Expert Electric Buggy victory, and he opted for the ProTek RC 4S 120C 6500mAh pack to take the win in the 10-minute Electric Truck A main.
