Myron Kinnard Takes One Lug Raceway with his TC6.2March 21, 2014
Event Name: 2014 Carpet Showdown
Event Location: One Lug Raceway, Albertville, AL
Event Date(s): March 15, 2014 to March 15, 2014
On March 15, One Lug RC Raceway hosted The 2014 Carpet Showdown in Albertville, Alabama. The Carpet Showdown brought racers from most of the southeast including Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi and Alabama.
Team Associated's Myron Kinnard was on hand helping out racers and demonstrating Associated and Reedy products to newcomers and seasoned racers, such as the TC6.2 Touring Car, Reedy Sonic Mach 2 25.5T motor, and Reedy 7000 5mm LiPo battery.
The short track layout generated intense racing and made no room for errors. Close spec racing and the fun factor of the muscle-car bodies added realism to the track, with some back-to-back racing. Tight 180-degree turns and fast, short straights required serious setup and driving control.
Team Associated's Myron Kinnard took his Reedy-powered TC6.2 to the TQ spot in qualifying. In the Main he took full advantage of that TQ position and from the tone took off and left the rest in his wake. Will Sheffield in his Team Associated debut also made the A Main and finished a respectable fifth place. Both Myron and Will used The Team Associated TC6.2 with Reedy power. This was Will's first race as a sponsored Team Associated racer.
The TC6.2 is a great platform for any onroad racing from VTA to Open Mod. This car is easy to drive fast and easy to maintain. The chassis showed no signs of fail at any time during the event.
Thank you, One Lug RC Raceway, for putting on a fun and challenging race to attend. Regional onroad events like this truly help grow the sport of RC racing and onroad too. Team Associated will be back again next year.
