COME DRIVE WITH US – SILVER STATE II

It’s finally here! Pro-Line Racing & 5150 Media Productions are very happy to present Come Drive With Us – Silver State II.

It’s been a rough few years in this industry; Companies being sold, others going into financial restructuring or disappearing all together! Tracks closing all across the United States, including RC Tracks of Las Vegas. This one hit us hard because of all the time we spent there in 2016; it was a hard blow. No one will ever really know what happened, and it was hard to make heads or tales of the ‘he said / he said’ around it’s closure…but it was a blow for the industry. Then there was the social media fiasco caused by he who shall not be named…It was just blow after blow for the sport loved by so many.

With RCToLV closing, most of the industry just assumed the Silver State Race was dead too. So when the news hit that Joey Wolters Christensen was taking it over again, it started a buzz throughout the industry. We were really looking forward to this race and he knew it would be more like a really big high-school house party right out of the 80s (hence the sound-track I used). This race did not disappoint, and it was exactly what the industry needed.

Join Charlie Suangka as he tells the story of this amazing event.

Come Drive With Us – The Xiamen Worlds

Pro-Line Racing & 5150 Media Productions are proud to present the latest installment of the “Come Drive With Us” Series: The 2017 IFMAR Worlds! These 1/10 scale worlds were held in Xiamen, which is on the South Eastern Coast of China, and the event was absolutely amazing.

Unless you don’t really follow the sport of Profissional R/C Racing, you likely already know that Ryan Maifield won both the 2WD & the 4WD events at these worlds. But it was no easy path for him. In-fact, after the first practice day, many thought he just might rage-quit. This race had it all: man-made rain, Mad Max, the worst spec tires ever created by man, crazy conditions, and of course, a double world champ for only the 4th time in IFMAR history!

This was also a very special race, not only because we witnessed Ryan winning his first world Championship, but because we were able to see Dallas Mathiesen in his element for one last race. This would be his final off-road world championship. Dallas would pass away only a few short months after the worlds.

Rest in Peace Dallas. You will be missed!

This episode is once again Narrated by Mike Garrison and features appearances by Ty Tessmann, Kyle McBride, Bruno Coelho, Dustin Evans, Zeke Ballinger, Lee Martin, Ryan Maifield, Scotty Ernst, Jared Tebo, Ryan Cavalieri, David Ronnefalk and the winningest driver in R/C History…Masami Hirosaka.

We hope you enjoy this episode; it was an epic edit!
