Last weekend Pin Stop Hobbies presented the Race For A Cure at the Goshen Connecticut Fairgrounds, and X Factory Team driver Chris Cristo TQed and won 1/10 Stadium Truck with his X – 60. Cristo took three of the four qualifiers and won the first two A Mains to sew up the title.
The race was held in the center of the fairgrounds during the Goshen Stampede, which is a large fair with a rodeo, demolition derby, truck pulling, carnival rides and concerts; more than 10,000 people attended during the three days. The R/C track was built in a grassy area in the middle of everything, with dirt jumps and grass on the level parts of the track, so the fair attendees were constantly watching R/C action. They even set up bleachers for the spectators, which always had at least some people watching!
Through the three day event the grass parts of the track deteriorated as racing progressed, such that very little grass was left when the mains started Sunday. The extremely slippery conditions suited Cristo and his X – 60 truck well, and he won both mains comfortably with smooth consistent drives. After A-2 Chris said...
When the grass went away the loose top soil became very slippery, but my mid-motor X – 60 doesn’t seem to care if it’s high traction or an ice rink. I’ve never driven anything so stable no matter what the conditions are.
