1/10 IFMAR Worlds

The 17th running of the 1/10 IFMAR World will be held near the city of Xiamen, which in the south east of the country, at the ARC International Raceway.  The impressive facility which is part of the 3-Circles battery factory, will build a new dirt track for the WC on the same location as it is current 1/8th scale offroad track.

With this being such an active off-season it will be interresting to see how these worlds treat drivers like Tessmann & Evans who have swiched chassis manufacturers.

This will be an epic finish to an exciting season of “Come Drive With Us”.

Stay tuned!

Upcoming 5150 Releases

We just wanted to give our fans a heads-up as to what we releases we have coming out in the next few months.

  • Legends of R/C: RC Cribs “The Drakes”
  • Come Drive With Us – SiK Cross
  • Un-named 2017 Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo Documentary featuring Raphael Sbarge, Garrett Wang, Jim Shooter, Mark Meer, Howie Miller, Trevor Goupil & More…
  • Come Drive With Us – Surf City Classic
  • Come Drive With Us – China Worlds
  • Legends of R/C: The Media Guys!

We are not going to attach dates to any of these releases; they will each be released precisely when they mean to be. That being said, this is the planned release order.

 

Surf City Classic

For the past 9 years the Pro-Line Surf City Classic has been one of the go-to races. With this being a 1/10 worlds year, we will be covering one of the most exciting races on the west coast for it’s historic 10th running.

This will also be the fist time we see several key players, including Dustin Evans & Ty Tessmann, in brand new chassis! Ty recently switched to XRAY whilst Dustin is now sporting Team Associated gear.

This race should make an excellent addition to the “Come Drive With Us” Series.

Note: The date identified for this race is tentative and has not yet been finalized.

Event Swap!

Due to the low pro-driver turnout we will not be shooting at “The Dual” this weekend. We will be swapping this event out for “SikCross” which has more of the top-level drivers confirmed as attending.

While we were all looking forward to capturing the uniqueness of “The Dual” all those involved in this project felt in the interest of storytelling that this event, while one of a kind, could not hold up to expectations.

We apologize for this “12th hour” cancellation and we look forward to seeing many of you @ SikCross in September! The rest of our schedule is locked in:

  • Pro-Line Surf City Classic (August 25-27)
  • SikCross (September 1-3)
  • Southern Nationals (September 17th)
  • IFMAR Wolds (November 6-12)

Come Drive With Us – PNB

Pro-Line Racing & 5150 Media Productions are proud to present to you the story of the 2017 Psycho Nitro Blast.

This season started out with so many changes; Maifield switching to Mugen; Tessmann to XRAY; so we decided to theme this season accordingly. Change is everywhere in this industry; even at the event level. In years past, DNC has been considered the largest Nitro Race in the world. That just might not be the case any longer.

This is the story of what could very well be considered the largest R/C race in the world, and unlike other large events…it is run in 3 days!

The talented Mike Garrison Narrates this episode of “Come Drive WIth Us” and we hope you enjoy it!

Special thanks to Mike Garrison, Adam Drake, Tanner Denney, Joe Bornhorst, Mark Santa Maria, Jerome Treignier, Eggroll, Rob Theissen & the Noise Therapy band, the Tessmann family, everyone at Pro-Line Racing and last but far from least, Dave Leikam.
