RawFew BBQ and Game Day

November 16, 2019
Leading up to this weekend has been hectic for Joe and myself, as we are doing some serious remodeling here at Super-G. We are in the process of adding a lot more retail space for our store, and at the same time increasing our permanent pit space. The Team RawFew had approached us with a plan to host a BBQ and have a few tests of skill. The idea was to have a fun session with some fun games. Nothing serious going on.

The menu for the day was burgers, dogs, and hot links! Manny took on the grilling tasks. I don’t think I saw him leave the grill the entire time. He really killed it as the grill master.

Gettin it on! Busted out the Recking Kru Team Bodies.
Mark Santa Cruz and myself getting some Team Tandem slides on.

The session was really good and the vibe was very relaxed. Just some good food and friends sliding together. There seemed to be a lot of team tandem practicing going on, which was really good to see. I think 2020 should be the year we start to see some serious team tandem comps going on.

After everyone was done eating, Nick jumped on the mic and got the games going. Nobody was quite sure what they had in store, but you know how it is, everyone was down to give it a shot. The first round was a drift gate type of contest. They had set up a movable cone and gave everyone about 1.25 car length space to drift through. As long as you were drifting it and didn’t knock down the cone you were good. How fun was it? I wanted to go a few more rounds! Everyone lined up and took a shot at it. If you made it you got back in line to try the smaller gap. We finally got down to 3 people going through an opening less than a car length. While holding a high speed shallow drift, Alan Benites showed us all what it’s about and took the win!

Drift Park – Aydin won with less room than this!

Next up was the Drift Park. The objective was to drift into the parking spot between 2 cars while not going past them. After every round the cars were moved closer and closer. It finally came down to 2 people, Sam and Aydin Angulo! It was a father and son battle. Aydin squeezed in perfectly with less than half an inch at the front and back of the car!!! Sam almost had it as well, but tapped at the last moment. Aydin Angulo took the win!

The Winners of the Games – Alan Benites (Drift Gate), Aydin Angulo (Drift Park)
Scale Reflex Light Kits to the winners!

After the games, it was mentioned to me by more than a few that they wanted more of this type of event. I have to agree. We knew going into it that it would be fun, but I don’t think anyone really expected the level of fun that it really was. Not a single complaint, nobody getting bent, just good fun with the family.

I’m sure The RawFew will be going another soon. Trust me, when they do, you definitely do not want to miss it!

Thanks to the RawFew Members – Nick Lepisto, Mark Santa Cruz, Jason Fordyce, and Manny Campalans for making this happen. It was a great success and more importantly, a ton of fun! Looking forward to the next one!

Super-G 5 Year Event Weekend!

October 18-19, 2019:
This past weekend was the Super-G 5 Year Anniversary Event. We hold this annual event every year on the same weekend as Formula Drift has their Final Bout at Irwindale Speedway. (Just in case you want to plan for next year) We are overwhelmed by the tremendous support the community has shown us here at Super-G! So much so, I found myself speechless yesterday. I needed to take a day to gather my thoughts before doing my recap.

50+ Competitors, 90+ Drivers made this weekend one for the books!

The format for the weekend:
Friday was a huge open session, then in the evening we held our SuperTwin Team Tandem Battle. Teams of 2 paired up and ran their best lap against competing teams.

Saturday was another open session, then in the evening we held a huge Tsuiso Battle. This was not only our annual competition, but also the finals for our year long series, The SuperShowdowns.

The Event:
This weekend was all about bringing the R/C Drift Community together to celebrate our 5th year. When we started doing R/C Drift in the parking lot in front of Project-G (Our Miata Business) it was just something we were doing on the weekends for fun. We had no idea it would become what it has over the past 5 years. It has been slowly growing, and the more the community grows, the more we are seeing the bigger manufacturers taking notice.

Team Bushido Represent

Huge Shout Out to the Event Sponsors:
Overdose, Futaba, Pandora R/C, Acuvance, Tamiya, Topline, Tetsujin, ScaleReflex, APlastics, D-Like, Vertex R/C, Yokomo,
and last but definitely not least, DS Racing for providing the Super-G Spec Tire – RWD FFFF Zero Mark II. We have found this tire to provide the perfect balance of forward and side bite, while keeping the speeds down.

Remember these names when you are choosing your gear.
These are the companies who are taking notice of the R/C Drift Community and are giving you new and exciting products. They have all generously donated to our event knowing ultimately their prizes would end up in your hands. The future is your’s to decide. If you want R/C Drift to continue to grow, you need to make sure to support the companies who support the growth of the scene. It really is as simple as that.

We had a Mega Raffle that spanned the course of 2 days and consisted in over $4000.00 in prizes!!! These were all generously donated by the event sponsors to show support for the R/C Drift Community.

The West Coast Family:
This year seems to be a milestone for Super-G, and the West Coast Drift Community. Here at Super-G we have been working toward bringing the community together for awhile now. This year many of the West Coast teams had an actual hand in putting on this event. The RawFew had been heavily involved in planning this event. They also had helped a lot with the behind the scenes prep and put in a lot of work to make this happen. Limited Traction single handedly handled the food for both days. Ryan Smoov from SwiftSuns jumped on the decks to provide some live DJ music on Saturday. Last but not least, Shaine Collins from Team D-Style has been one of 3 judges (along with myself and Colin Chambers – RawFew) to refine our judging rules and guidelines for the past 2 years now, not to mention judging the actual competition. Team Bushido and Team WallRide, part of our NorCal family also came down to support and were available for anything and everything we needed help with. Much love going out to you guys for pulling together to make our best event so far happen!

Food Food Food!!!
When we all get together, somehow it seems like Drift and Food go hand in hand! This time was no exception. Dennis and Al from Limited Traction were manning the grill and stuffed us all with some wicked Tri Tip, Hot Links, and Dogs on Friday. I don’t know if the food or the drifting was better, but since it was a weekend for drifting, I’m going to have to say the food was almost as good as the drifting. Saturday was all about burgers, hot links, and dogs! Feeding that many people is a huge job. I have to say other than a couple minutes a few times during the event, I didn’t see Dennis or Al. I have to assume that was an all day task. Thank you guys for handling that!

That wasn’t all! Chito, Lexter, and Ethan (RawFew) had also picked up a TON of pizza and cookies for everyone as the event started! Everyone must have been hungry cause within minutes there were just a bunch of empty pizza boxes stacked in the corner! Thank you so much Chito, Lexter, and Ethan!!!

The SuperTwin Team Tandem Battles:
We have been working closely with Limited Traction in getting some sort of Team Tandem Competition going. We started with a Triple Team, but we found it difficult for some to gather a team of 3. So we have gone with the Twin since teams of 2 have been easier to round up. However, it may be time to go with 3 man teams again. Stay tuned for more details.

Twenty Teams / Forty Drivers – SuperTwin Madness!!!
The SuperTwin Battles were as they always are. A little lighter mood than a full on comp, definitely less serious, and really a whole lot of fun! In Japan, the Tsuiso Battles are serious business, so the Team Tandem comps are really all about fun. It depends what you are in the hobby for, which will appeal to you more. Most of us love both.

We had teams from California, Nevada, Arizona, and Texas! Everyone really put on a good performance. What was very impressive was the fact that many had never run on polished concrete, so this was a all new experience for them. Yet, when it came to competition time, EVERYONE was running as if they were a Super-G Local. This just demonstrates the type of skill we are talking about here.

Congratulations to the winning team, Kevin Motter and Ryno Degala – Limited Few!
This was a collab team of Kevin from RawFew and Ryno from Limited Traction. Both top notch drivers and they formed a winning team. They really deserved the victory with some truly amazing runs! I personally teamed up with Dennis Caroza from Limited Traction to form the team Super Balls. (Don’t ask, cause I don’t know) Ha ha! Although we had a pretty good run, we started celebrating a little early. When I say early, I mean about 5 feet before the finish line!!! Needless to say, we got eliminated. We still had a blast!

The Tsuiso Battles:
With 50+ competitors coming together to compete, this was an exciting weekend for the Super-G locals, as well as anyone who enjoys Competition. The best of the best had all come together to throw down and see who really has what it takes take home the goods. This was also the final round for our 2019 Series – SuperShowdowns! Not only were First, Second, and Third for the comp taking home trophies, but First, Second, and Third for the Rookie Class, and we were also Crowning the SoCal Drift King (First), Second, and Third place for our SuperShowdown Series! It almost felt like trophies for everyone!

Everything aside, this weekend was really all about coming together for good company, good eats, good times, and good slides. We had drivers from Orange County, San Diego, Palmdale, Fresno, San Jose, Santa Clara, Salinas, Las Vegas, Arizona, and Texas. Everyone converged here in Los Angeles at Super-G R/C Drift Arena to share this hobby we all love, R/C Drift!

Joe and I, along with the RawFew and Limited Traction would like to say thank you for a great five years!
Super-G is committed to pushing the R/C Drift Scene here in the U.S. to the next level for 2020.

Thus far, Super-G has established a solid judging guide and rule set we have been refining over the course of 80-100 comps.

We have developed our Super-G Replay System which has revolutionized our judging accuracy, and ensuring there is no bias and minimal margin for error. This system has allowed us to correctly make calls that would otherwise have gone the other way, and undoubtedly would have been bad calls.

Super-G Cyber SG1 Drift Chassis

Presently we are in the middle of launching the Super-G Chassis, the Super-G Cyber SG1, which has some unique features we wanted to bring to the scene.

In addition to the chassis, we already have more new and innovative products in the works.

Last, but definitely not least, Super-G will be hosting a R/C Drift Series which will NOT limited to Super-G in SoCal in 2020. Stay tuned for more information to be released shortly!

Shout Outs to:
RawFew, Limited Traction, Team Bushido, Team Wallride, Team D-Style, Tech1Drift, Team Tekno, Swift Suns, Coyote Racing, Proximity Pals, Dirty Dancers, and Team Slidelines for your ongoing support!

SuperShowdowns The Final Throwdown – Super-G 5 Year Event

October 19, 2019:
The year long series, SuperShowdowns here at Super-G have come to an end at the Super-G 5 Year Annual Event! This season has been exciting to say the least, but more than that, we have seen HUGE improvement all around. The driver’s skill has increased tremendously over the past year. In addition to the drivers themselves, our judging, rules, and efficiency have grown beyond our expectations. Finally, our Super-G Replay System has come to the point where we feel very comfortable with how everything is working together. All this combined has made for a Competition Series we can all be proud to be a part of. 2020 promises to far exceed 2019.

SuperShowdowns are a monthly competition, each separate from the rest with trophies awarded for the podium finishers. We have also been running a points series in the background. The points would only come into play at the final competition of the series, where we would add the points and crown the SoCal Drift King. To keep things sane, we decided to drop each competitors 2 lowest rounds, allowing for missed rounds without blowing the series. If you missed more than 2, you were on your own.

Judging
For the entire series, myself, along with Colin Chambers and Shaine Collins were the Official Judges. I need to give a special thank you to both Colin and Shaine for not only being the most reliable judges, but for showing a true passion for judging fairly. For myself, I consider each and every person who comes through the doors of Super-G to be “one of my guys”. So I would love to see everyone win. However, for Shaine and Colin, they are both very good friends with a couple of guys who were always battling for the top positions. I can say without reservation, I never once witnessed even the slightest hint of favoritism or bias. Our desire to make the correct call far surpassed any type of loyalty or friendship. Having the entire crowd watching any of the replays we were reviewing ensured there was no funny business going on. So on behalf of Super-G and the SoCal Drift Community, I would like to give a huge than you to Colin Chambers and Shaine Collins. Two of the finest judges in the game today.

The Vegas Fam In The House!

The Points
Coming into the Finals, Kevin Motter had secured 1st Place at the conclusion of Round 10, but the real battle was for 2nd Place! Mikko Yang and Jason Fordyce were tied in points for 2nd, but the reality was everyone in the Top 13 could possibly land 2nd or 3rd place. Needless to say, coming into the finals was exciting!

Qualifying
Since the Finals were held at the Super-G 5 Year Event, the entries were more than usual! 50+ competitors over the weekend was no joke. We decided to create 2 classes. We originally called them Rookie and Expert Class, but we will revise that for any upcoming events. Everyone ran their 2 qualifying laps, and the judges decided who belonged in Rookie or Expert based on their performance. There were many key factors, and in the end it seemed to be the right call. There are people who are ready to compete at the expert level after a month, and there are people who should be competing in Rookie in their second year. Let’s keep it fun!

RawFew’s very own Ethan. The only people who don’t sweat this guy are the people who just don’t know. He’s a little terror in a box.

I normally try to keep my personal feelings out of the recaps, but I need to get personal on this round. It was obvious to me that everyone came to put down their very best for the Finals. Mikko seemed to bring out the big guns this round and pulled off what I feel is his best qualifier ever! I was pretty confident he was taking TQ with 2 back to back blistering runs. I always try to keep an open mind as a judge, but I just couldn’t help but feel that was the best we were going to see for this round. A few runs later, it was Kevin Motter’s turn. Knowing how focused Kevin can get, I knew there was a slight chance he could pull it off, but replaying Mikko’s run back in my mind, I new it wasn’t going to be easy, if not impossible. Wouldn’t you know it, Kevin pulls off an amazing first run! Equal to Mikko’s. I couldn’t say better, but I could easily say it was equal. Kevin’s second run is another amazing run! Better than Mikko’s? We all felt they were just about all the same runs. ALL 4 RUNS WERE BASICALLY THE SAME!

Who’s Going First? Mikko GOT ‘EM!!!

It was down to one more qualifying run for each of them. Mikko won the Rock, Paper, Scissors match, so he chose to go first. Amazingly, he was able to put together another insane run! Then it was Kevin’s turn and in typical Kevin fashion, turned it up a notch and cut his margin of safety in half. There was no denying he was going to the limit in each clip, earning him the Top Qualifier Position!

My Man Shaine Clowning! But only after qualifying 3rd!!!

For myself, a very notable happening this round was my fellow judge Shaine Collins and his qualifying. For the entire season, he has been finding himself on the lower end of the qualifying, but he pulled it together this round and pulled off a 3rd Place qualifying run! I could not be more proud of him. Great job Shaine!

Picture Time!

The Tsuiso Battles
There was a lot going on with these battles and we ended up with more battles than we anticipated. In the end, these battles are what this day was about, and we had a lot of trophies that needed to find new homes!

Quite honestly, by the time we got to the Semi Finals, my brain was fried. I cannot for the life of me recall any of the runs. I’m sorry for keeping this short, but it took everything I had to stay focused on the individual battles. In the end, it was Bret Trevio (Team Slidelines) vs. Mikko Yang (Team Yokomo USA) for 3rd and 4th. Mikko came out victorious landing him on the 3rd spot on the podium, while Bret took a very respectable 4th Place!

First Place Battle – Kevin Motter (RawFew) vs. Tim Mulhmeyer (Team Rhino)

Then it was time for the Finals, Kevin Motter (RawFew) vs. Tim Mulhmeyer (Team Rhino). Kevin ultimately came out on top, landing him at the Top Spot on the podium for First Place! Tim took a hard earned and very deserved 2nd!

SuperTwin 5 Year Competition

DAY ONE: SuperTwin Team Tandem Competition

October 18, 2019:
This year at the Super-G 5 Year Event, day 1 consisted of a day long Open Session and a SuperTwin Competition in the evening. For those who are not familiar with the SuperTwin, it is a Team Tandem Competition where teams of 2 compete against each other to see who can put down the best lap. This competition is structured differently than normal Tsuiso Comps in the way it’s approached and judged. The idea is to allow the teams the freedom to perform what they feel will be the best the course. The judging is based on how “cool” it looks. Proximity, Transitions, Style, and Line are just some of the factors taken into account. Basically, make it look better than the team you are up against and advance to the next round.

This time around we had many visitors from outside of the area. Teams from Orange County, San Diego, Palmdale, Fresno, San Jose, Santa Clara, Salinas, Las Vegas, Arizona, and Texas had all shown up to take part in the SuperTwin!

Personally what I really liked was seeing new teams being formed on the fly. People who wanted to compete, but didn’t have a partner to do so were making friends and partnering up to join in the battle. What an awesome way to meet new people!

The Finals – Limited Few vs. RawRide

Twenty Teams of Two!
Team Mark and James – Mark / James
Team RawRide – Jason / Allen

SuperTwin Team Tandem Brackets

The Competition
We had 3 awesome judges step up to handle the task. Keep in mind we don’t have any real solid rules, so a lot of this is what the judges themselves decide are the better runs. They did a fantastic job and I have to say that I would have made the very same calls they did. So a huge thanks going out to Mark Santa Cruz (RawFew), Corey Carlstrom (Team D-Style), and Rick Mahaney (Limited Traction)! for a difficult job well done!

For the sake of time, we decided to go with a random bracket order, single elimination. The mood was definitely light and the vibe was all about fun! A lot of joking and some trash talking was going on, all in good fun! I was told by a few that they preferred the Team Tandem Competition over the regular competitions. Others said it was fun, but doesn’t really replace the head to head battles they are use to. Whatever your take, it was a good time!

In the end, It came down to Team RawRide (Jason Fordyce (RawFew) / Allen Gu (Team Wallride)) vs. Limited Few (Kevin Motter (RawFew) / Ryno Degala (Limited Traction)). Both teams put down some insane runs leaving the crowd wondering what the judges would come up with. In the end, Limited Few had run a better line (deeper and more difficult) and that was enough to sway the judges!!!

SuperTwin Winners: Limited Few – Kevin Motter (RawFew) and Ryno Degala (Limited Traction)

Congratulations to Limited Few – Kevin Motter and Ryno Degala for a hard fought and well deserved win!!!

After the competition, we went straight to the Super-G Raffle (Part 1)! A lot of people walked away with some great prizes, including a Overdose Galm Kit!

Official Rules Here

Qualifying:
This will be a single run format. Each competitor will have 2 qualifying runs. Each lap will start at the starting line, and will be signaled in by the judges. Each lap will be scored by the judges and the best of the 2 will be your final qualifying score. Classes (Rookie and Expert) will be decided by the judges during qualifying.

We will be using the Super-G Bracketing System, whether we have Top 16 or Top 32, depending on the turnout, the last spot will be up for grabs for the lower qualifying competitors. Example: If we have 19 entries, the Top 15 will be seeded, the remaining 16-19 qualifying spots will battle in a lower bracket for the 16th spot. This means everyone will still have a chance to work their way up, even with a bad qualifier.

The Tsuiso Battles:
We will be running the competition as we always do for our SuperShowdown Comps. So for those of you who have taken part in any of them throughout the year, it will be very familiar.

Official Rules Here

Qualifying:
This will be a single run format. Each competitor will have 2 qualifying runs. Each lap will start at the starting line, and will be signaled in by the judges. Each lap will be scored by the judges and the best of the 2 will be your final qualifying score. Classes (Rookie and Expert) will be decided by the judges during qualifying.

We will be using the Super-G Bracketing System, whether we have Top 16 or Top 32, depending on the turnout, the last spot will be up for grabs for the lower qualifying competitors. Example: If we have 19 entries, the Top 15 will be seeded, the remaining 16-19 qualifying spots will battle in a lower bracket for the 16th spot. This means everyone will still have a chance to work their way up, even with a bad qualifier.

Tech:
Spec Tire – DS Racing RWD FFFF Zero Mark II All Around
 (2 Rear Included In Entry Fee) More can be purchased if needed.
1100g Max Weight at the rear wheels

Super-G – Vegas Invasion 2019

September 21, 2019
What a great weekend! Joe, myself, along with RawFew member Nick Lepisto and a few of the Super-G Fam – Victor, Jose, and Ruben made our way out to Slidelines R/C in Las Vegas!

Finally here! Slidelines R/C in Las Vegas, Nevada

I had found myself headed to Vegas this weekend for a convention for with the wife. Since we have been wanting to visit Slidelines since they opened, it was the perfect opportunity. I would be busy till Saturday night, and that seemed to be the perfect night to get some slides on. Joe flew up Saturday, Nick drove, and Victor, Jose, and Ruben drove up the day before. We all met up at Slidelines Saturday night.

Packed House! Comfortable driving space.

When we arrived, the session was already in full swing! The place was packed with some serious drifting going on. A lot of familiar faces and a ton of new as well. They even had a Taco Man serving up some serious tacos! Going into this, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I have to say I didn’t expect anything of this level! Talk about hospitality! Dillon and Bret really went all out.

Great food, people, and slides! 
Thank you Slidelines R/C for the hospitality!

Since this was our first visit to Slidelines R/C, I was very curious as to how their setup would be. The first thing I noticed was the great use of space. The feel is very open, not tight at all. Something we all struggle with and something I know we need to work on here at Super-G. In talking with Dillon and Mike C, I learned it was very deliberate and they had gone though many layouts before finding one that worked for the size and shape of their shop. I was comfortable everywhere around the track, never feeling cramped. In my opinion, Slidelines R/C has found the perfect balance of Track space and Driver space. Great job guys!!!

Tacos first, cause nobody should be drifting on an empty stomach!

The track itself is awesome! Lane width and track flow are on point! Nothing forced or awkward, just good flow. The surface is P-Tile and is very smooth. I learned they did the install themselves, but is really as flat and as perfect as any professional install would or could be. They also have a good selection of Yokomo parts on hand.

Super-G Factory Team Driver – Nick Lepisto representing RawFew

Since we have been testing the new Super-G Cyber SG1 chassis, it was only fitting to bring it out for our Vegas fam to put it through it’s paces. Initially I had intended to put down a few laps and do some tuning since it is on a different surface, but since the session was going and the energy was high, I threw the Cyber SG1 to Mike C to give it a try. It seemed to be right at home with what was going on, so we just ran with it. Quite a few of the Vegas locals got to lay down some laps and the feedback was very favorable. I wish I had time to tune for their surface, but I’m sure it was more than understandable given the circumstances and the time constraints.

The Super-G Chassis – Cyber SG1
Slidelines R/C Las Vegas Tested!

We all had an amazing time at Slidelines R/C! The vibe was definitely good, just as it was the last time we visited Vegas for the session at the park and StanceNation Event. It was great talking to so many of the Vegas guys, many that are Super-G regulars and long time friends. Dillon and Bret have done a fantastic job giving the Vegas drift scene a permanent facility. Something the community really needs.

Huge thanks going out to Dillon and Bret for such a warm welcome and the great hospitality. Also to Mike C, Grant, and Scott for always taking care of us. We will visiting again real soon. We felt right at home with so many of the Vegas Fam being long time Super-G regulars. Till next time guys!
