You're cutting it close aren't you? I'm looking forward to seeing the changes.

There's a chance of shower on friday night. That should help pack it down.

Being a part of the Nor Cal racing scene over the past 10 years, I've seen a lot of racers come and go. It's fun for me to witness some of the new racers work their way up through the ranks and mature into what many times can be a national caliber driver. Two racers who are making a lot of noise on the race scene right now with podium finishes on the club level and on the regional are David Castro and Ryan Sagisi. Castro, clearly over the past few years has earned the title as "the guy to beat" in Short Course. Sagisi, made a name for himself locally as being the top contender in the spec classes and even backed it up with impressive finishes at the ROAR Off Road Nationals and Nor Cal's own Off Road Kings. I was able to catch up with these 2 guys and get some background info on them to find out where they been and where they plan on going: 

 

Age?
26

Where are you from/hometown?

Born in San Jose, CA, raised in Hawaii and now currently living in San Jose

How did you get started in RC?
My dad is probably the one to blame. When I was 8 he got himself a Losi Jrx2 and a 12th scale pan car.  Never really got to drive them, but since then I loved RC cars.  I remember watching “the winning edge rc10” vhs tape a countless number of times growing up. 

How many years have you been racing?

I have been racing consistently for 4 years now. Mostly racing Kyosho mini-z but just started getting into 1/10 off road and on road.

Favorite RC vehicle to race?

2wd buggy open (Kyosho RB5 sp2)


What driver do you look up to, who inspires you the most?
Although I haven’t met the guy, I would say Atsushi Hara.  I enjoy watching his races/interviews.  Seems like a nice guy that loves this hobby. I wasn’t racing when Matt Francis was around but after hearing so much about him.  I definitely would like to meet him.

What is your all time favorite Nor Cal layout?

2011 Roar nationals would be my favorite.  It’s my favorite because I got to see the top drivers from across the US throw it down on the very same soil that I raced on.

What are your goals for 2012?

Have fun and get more people into our hobby.  I would also like to start racing at races across the nation.


What driver do you think is you're rival, closest competition?

David Castro, We raced mini-z together for a while then he got into off road while I stayed racing mini-z.  Now that I just started racing off road I got some catching up to do.

What is you're favorite tire, go to tire?
Being only 7 months into off road I don’t really have a go to tire.  Still learning what tire/insert to use on different track conditions.

What do you contribute you're success in off road with such little experience to?
Mini-z racing hands down! If you can drive a mini-z it makes everything else easier to drive.  Also everyone at Nor Cal is so helpful that it brings you up to speed pretty quick.


Recent podiums?
-1st Stock Short Course, 3rd stock 2wd buggy 2011 Northern California Off-Road Champs
-1st Stock Short Course 2011 Jconcepts Summer Nationals
-1st Stock Short Course, 2nd stock 2wd buggy 2011 Norcal Off-Road Kings
-3rd Open 2wd Truck 2011 Modesto “Race for a Cure”
-4th Stock Short Course, 8th Stock 2wd buggy 2011 Roar Off-Road Nationals

Special thanks/ shout outs?

Special thanks to Nor Cal Hobbies, Peter and the guys at Fast Pace Racing for their support and can’t forget my girl friend for allowing me to race and wrench on my cars. Big thanks to Jesse Stark for this interview and holding down the race program at Nor Cal Hobbies.

 

 

How many years have you been racing? This is my 3rd year

Where are you from? Redwood City

Age? 33

Favorite RC Vehicle? Kyosho SCR

Favorite Class?
4wd SC

What driver inspires the most, who do you look up to? Jared Tebo

Do you have any sponsors yet? No, no sponsors

What is you're all time favorite Nor Cal layout? Nats layout.

What are your goals for 2012?
Get sponsored, win some big races at A main hobbies

What driver do you think is your rival, closest competition? Jelich is the only one to battle with me when he cuts the track ha ha

What is you're favorite tire or go to tire?
AKA Enduro and Gridiron

What do you contribute all your success in SC to?
Practice/track time has helped me.

Special thanks/Shout out? Thanks to Nor Cal Hobbies

Great job Jesse and Kevin for holding down today's off road race! We finished right before the rain started coming down. Track was dialed! Looking forward to the new layout that Kevin claims will be the best layout he has raced on.

Now that Norcal has it's dedicated 1/8 track again, it's a shame to only run one 1/8 e-buggy class on it on race days. Let's get the truggy class going again. Electric or nitro, it doesn't matter. Let's run them together if we can.

I know many of you have 1/8 truggies and agree that it's one of the most fun classes, so bring 'em out! I'll have mine ready tomorrow as always.

Tomas,

Tim has some of the blue prolines. I'll look you up if that falls through.

Thanks,

Any of you have a ProLine short course foam new or in good shape? Or maybe a bald Proline tire I could cut the foam out of?

I stripped a wheel last weekend, baked the tire off, but the foam didn't survive. FWIW: Use 250F not 350F...
