Press release from LRP:
CHRIS HAHLEN EXTENDS WITH LRP!
OR8 Racer Chris Hahlen has chosen to remain with Blue is Better. But now he adds even more on top. Besides the complete LRP equipment, he will now also use the products of Team Associated, Sanwa and AKA at his races.
Chris is known in the scene as a driver with much passion for detail. He doesn’t leave anything to chance. Every single part up to the last screw has to fit precisely. And Chris shares his tips and tricks with the other drivers – directly at the track and also online. If there’s a passionate racer addicted to Offroad competition, then it is Christian Hahlen.
At his OR8 races, the ZZ.21C Ceramic Square Stroke (#32123), Screamer-93 Pipe (#36255), WorksTeam glow plugs and additional Nitro accessories will be packed into Chris’ AE RC8B3 car.
Once the AE RC8B3e will be in operation, it will only happen with the Blue components such as iX8 V2 speed control, the Dynamic8 motor and the brand new LRP GRAPHENE Competition Car Line LiPo batteries inside. When the batteries have to be charged, Pulsar Touch Competition and Power Supply Competition will already be waiting in the pits.
On top of this impressive package, the AKA high-tech 1/8 Offroad competition tires will provide the necessary grip. The racing package will be rounded off by the Sanwa transmitting technology.
STEFAN SCHEUENPFLUG EXTENDS WITH LRP!
Offroad racing has been working best for Stefan with Blue is better for a long time. This is why he will also equip his Team Associated models in all OR8 & OR8e races with LRP equipment in 2017. Sanwa transmitter technology and AKA tires complete the racing package.
Never change a winning team. True to this motto, nothing will change for Stefan and LRP in 2017. Furthermore, he will continue to use the latest products from LRP, Sanwa and AKA in his Team Associated RC8B3 and RC8B3e when he hits the RC tracks.
In 2016 he already gave the following reasons for his decision to stay with LRP: "The combination of high-quality and reliable products as well as world class race support were the deciding factors and reasons why I continue to trust in LRP!” One year later and nothing has changed in Stefan’s reasoning.
Right at the top of Stefan’s LRP package is the LRP 1/8 BL drive combo, consisting of the iX8 V2 speed control and the Dynamic8 motor as well as the most current LRP GRAPHENE Competition Car Line LiPo batteries. At Nitro races, the high performance power unit LRP ZZ.21C Ceramic Square Stroke will be used. The engine will be perfectly supplemented by the package of the LRP Energy Power Fuel, receiver battery power, charging technology and suitable Nitro accessories from Blue is better.
The race package is rounded off by the Sanwa transmitter technology and AKA racing tires. The Sanwa technology guarantees lightning fast and precise control in every race situation. And as you would expect from a top driver, Stefan uses the high-end transmitter Sanwa M12S. The US American AKA 1/8 competition tires mustn’t be forgotten. They will provide the necessary grip in on every track and in every weather condition this season.
We wish you continued success in the LRP Racing Team, Stefan!
MAIK WIESWEG REMAINS LRP TEAM DRIVER!
He was already racing on the 1/8 tracks with “Blue is better” the fast tires from our distribution brand AKA in the past. This will also be that way in the future.
After the already successful cooperation in the past, it wasn’t such a big surprise that Maik will continue to trust in the "Blue“ electronic components.
Maik has been active in the RC model sports since 2008. Due to various titles and victories such as NRW State Champion 2008, German Champion Junior 2011 and numerous Cup victories, his success curve has been trending upwards ever after. Therefore, the blue premium components and the 1/8 high-tech competition tires from AKA are perfectly fitting his bill.
The blue products already had a very high standing with Maik in the past:
"Truly speaking, II can’t really explain why, but until now I was the most satisfied with them.” His car will be equipped with the LRP 1/8 BL drive combo, consisting of iX8 V2 speed control and Dynamic8 2200kV motor, as well as the LRP GRAPHENE Competition Car Line LiPo batteries. This package hasn’t only proven its value with Maik, but also with a great number of other OR8E drivers. Just like the “great support at the race track”.
The race package will be supplemented with equipment form the "Blue is better“ shelves, such as Pulsar Touch Competition and Power Supply Competition. They ensure that the LRP GRAPHENE Competition Car Line LiPo batteries have the right power at any time.
All the best for the season 2017, Maik!
