European Touring Series

Posted on Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010 | in News | No Comments

Another quick update for you from Europe:

LRP team drivers Ronald Völker and Eric Dankel had a perfect start in the European Touring Series 2010/11. After winning in Kastellaun, nobody among the Modified and Stock starters was able to keep up with the duo at Hrotovice/Tschechien.

These LRP team drivers remain on track in the European Touring Car series, with Ronald Völker once more succeeding against the top of the European touring car elite in the Modified class. Erik Dankel also won in Hrotovice.

Don’t get it wrong, these weren’t the only guys that left lasting impressions. The whole LRP team put on a great show. 5 out of 10 drivers made the A-Main in Modified and were able to secure 4 out of the first 5 ranks in the end (1. Ronald Völker, 3. Alexander Hagberg, 4. Juho Levanen, 5. Freddy Südhoff, 9. Dominik Fleischmann).

And they didn’t stop there: In stock racing class, 1st place went to Erik Dankel, 3rd place to Alexander Stocker and a strong 7th and 8th place for Tony Streit and Daniel Wohlgemuth. Yowsas!

Ronald Völker again dominated in the modified class. This guy is pretty unstoppable! These are just a few snippets from the LRP website. They were very successful in this round of the European Touring Series.

New Product! HPI Challenge Spec Racing tires

Posted on Tuesday, December 21st, 2010 | in News | No Comments

HPI is releasing an all-new tire design. All you on-road RC racers know  it’s  hard to find spec racing tires for on-road racers. But HPI has come up with a way to solve that problem. Well, go HPI!

These tires were developed with the help of the HB racing team. HPI has now developed a durable tire with excellent traction and high speed stability – key factors on designing a successful racing tire. The testing for these new tires took place from the UK to Thailand, and the results have been very impressive.

They are called the  HPI Challenge 30 tire/wheel set and they feature a low profile, fabric belt reinforcing and a unique blend of rubber to deliver good traction and excellent durability. The wheel is an HPI design molded in a stiff plastic for improved high-speed stability. The inserts used in the wheel are precisely molded to ensure consistency for predictable performance from set to set.

That’s pretty cool. Stay up to date on the hottest new releases and RC news like this here at RCNightmare.com.
