Martin takes opening qualifier at EOS Austria

Martin takes opening qualifier at EOS Austria

Having topped 2WD practice yesterday at the Euro Offroad Series Lee Martin picked up where he left off as he took the first of the the four rounds of qualifying in Austria.  Just missing out on a 16-lap run, the Yokomo driver was almost 3-seconds clear of the field with Xray’s Martin Bayer posting the second fastest time.  Posting the fastest lap of the opening qualifier, Schumacher’s Michal Orlowski completed the Top 3 despite two incidents. Also suffering errors, it wasn’t a good start to the day for Berlin podium finisher David Ronnefalk as ‘too many stupid mistakes’ left the HB driver 17th fastest.

MIP 5ive-T Real Brakes Kit

MIP 5ive-T Real Brakes Kit

Introducing a system that looks and works much like disk brakes on motorcycles, bikes, and large cars, MIP’s all new Real Brakes are here for the Losi 5ive-T. Consisting of proper and replaceable brake pads for stopping power and a disk rotor that is sure to last the life of the car, this system is sure to stop Losi’s large scale truck on a dime. With the updated brakes adjusting the pitch of the car in the air is a synch and as the car reacts in the air the brake rotor will not get cocked forward or backward due to special brake guide. This system has been tested for months by MIP’s product development team and is attributed with the 2014 West Coast Nationals Win and 2015 Nitro Challenge wins.
