Desert Racing’s Pro-4 and Pro-2 Series Driver Carl Renezeder

January 18th, 2011 No comments

What does it take to become Dirtsports’ Magazine Driver of the Year 2006 and Short Course Driver of the Year 2009? Well that’s what we wanted to know so we went right to the source, Carl Renezeder.

Renezeder has been taking home the checkered flag for over 18 years in various desert racing categories. His first major win came in 1994 in the Baja 1000-Class 1 and to date Carl has 92 short track wins under his belt including being able to boast that he is the only driver in history to capture a Pro-4 and Pro-2 championship in the same season. Pretty impressive, right? Carl also tells us that his competitive nature goes all the way back to childhood, playing water polo in high school and in college at UCLA, as well as, a motorcycle hobby he has had since he could drive. So, we wanted to know what got this competitive guy out of the pool and onto the short course desert tracks? “I raced in the desert in Class 1 buggies throughout the 1990′s, and then I saw short course racing on Speed in the late 1990′s and realized that was my kind of racing. It was a meld of motocross and desert racing; it had the side-by-side competition, and plenty of jumps. I competed in my first short course race in 1999 and the rest is history. I’ve been hooked ever since.” Of course Carl didn’t get to that first short course race all by himself. After he bought a Pro-2 in Southern California, he asked Curt LeDuc to prep it and bring it to his first race. Thanks to Curt’s help Carl was on his way and didn’t look back. Through the 2000′s Renezeder won not only dozens of races, but also championships just about every year in several sanctioning bodies like Championship Off Road Racing, World Series Off Road Racing, SCORE International Off Road Racing (including the Baja 1000 events) and the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series.

We all know the dirty, dusty, short course desert conditions can be tough on racing engines so we asked Carl about some of the products he uses. Coincidentally, one of the first products he told us about are his AEM filters. Carl says, “It’s a great partnership. We demand a lot from our trucks and our team; that means we demand the best from every product we use on our trucks. The AEM air filters have been fantastic. We know that if we don’t have to think twice about something that helps our trucks’ performance, then that’s one less worry as we head to staging for a race.”

Hypertech Max Energy Sport Programmer

April 13th, 2010 No comments

Finally, a programmer that delivers maximum power for sport compacts—and from a trusted name! The Hypertech Max Energy Sport is specifically developed for import vehicles and designed to extract every bit of energy from those high-revving, low-displacement engines.

Programmed for efficiency, the Max Energy Sport delivers maximum MPGs at part throttle and insane power gains when running wide-open. By optimizing every drop of fuel, the Sport delivers up to 10 extra ponies and 10 ft lbs of extra torque.

And, if you’re running a performance exhaust and/or intake, the Sport allows rev limiter adjustments (most models) to make the most of your mods. It’s just like a custom dyno tune—only this takes minutes to install and costs way less than dyno time. Plus, you can store and return to the factory tune in minutes.

With a garage full of features, from Top-Speed Limiter and Octane Tuning to Shift Points and Diagnostics, this is the only programmer for your sport compact. Plus, Hypertech backs your Max Energy Sport Tuner with a Lifetime Warranty.

Applications and pricing: Hypertech Max Energy Sport


Designed specifically for tuning sport compact vehicles
Delivers maximum power, quicker acceleration, smoother shifting and better driveability
Increases MPGs at light throttle—increases power at open throttle
Like getting a custom dyno tune—only this takes minutes and costs much less
Helps your motor develop all the power and torque it’s capable of
Perfect for vehicles already modified with performance intake and/or exhaust
Includes a collection of the following functions (features vary by vehicle):
Return to Stock: saves original factory tune—reinstalls in minutes
Internet Updateable: includes USB cable and software for quick internet updates
Power Tuning: optimizes tuning for regular and premium fuel
Rev Limiter: adjusts maximum RPM and shift points
Top Speed Limiter: adjusts top speed to match tire speed ratings
Electronic Throttle Restriction: delivers immediate and maximum throttle response
Read and Clear DTCs: reads and clears “check engine” and “service needed” messages
V-TEC Controller: adjusts VTEC camshaft profile to customize power band (Honda/Acura only)
Your Hypertech Max Energy Sport is backed by a Lifetime Warranty
Not legal for sale or use on pollution-controlled vehicles in the state of California

Max Energy Power Tuning extracts every bit of energy possible out of every molecule of fuel giving you more miles at part-throttle and more power at wide-open throttle. In order to increase engine efficiency, horsepower and torque, our engineers first make hundreds of dyno runs to optimize the spark and air-fuel curves point by point over the entire rpm band from just off idle to wide open throttle. Next we take the vehicle with the new tune to the track and the street to verify real world performance gains. The results…maximum power, quicker acceleration, smoother shifting and better driveability.

Baja 1000 is Good Test for Camburg Engineering KINETIK/General Tires Trophy Truck

December 6th, 2009 No comments


The Baja 1000 is arguably one of the most brutally demanding and unforgiving off-road races on the planet. It’s run each fall on Mexico’s, Baja California Peninsula. The first official race began in Tijuana, Baja California, on October 31, 1967, and was named the NORRA Mexican 1000 Rally. Every year since then, the event has grown more competitive, not only on the course, but first in the in the garage, where the difference between winning and even finishing, often depends on a single component choice.

With little time to spare, Jason Campbell and the Camburg Engineering crew were able to finish their new Trophy Truck and take it out on a maiden voyage only days before the race. They logged 50 miles at night to make sure all systems were operational and to get a quick feel for the truck. All things considered, the entire crew was very pleased with how that test run went.

Jason Campbell along with Jonathon Snelling, were the first team to drive. Unfortunately, Campbell experienced some unexpected physical difficulties and was only able to pilot the number 75 Trophy Truck to race mile 80, the team of Jerry Zaiden (driver) and John Duncan took over from there. The other alternate driver was Steve Myers from Myers Racing. Steve is very familiar with the San Felipe area and was the only Camburg team member to pre-run that section. This proved to be pivotal for the teams overall results.


The final team of Zaiden and Austin Farner completed the race. Jerry crossed the finish line 16th place in the Trophy Truck class, in 26 hours and 30 minutes. Factoring in an estimated seven or eight total hours of down time, and not having to put a single tool on the new truck the entire race, Team Camburg was extremely happy with their results.

“It’s an awesome feeling to finally drive a truck that you’ve envisioned years ago and put into action, let alone to finish a Baja 1000 out of the box,” said Campbell at the finish line.

“We more than met our goal. With only 50 miles of test time on our brand new truck, just finishing this race was our original goal. We had zero issues and never wrenched on the truck, our only down time was getting stuck for about 8 hours behind other people in bottlenecks,” explains Zaiden. Zaiden’s other duties include marketing, being race director and president of Camburg Racing.

“The AEM filters held up great. We only changed out one filter after the dry lake and silt beds. We did this only because we did not have any test time with this engine/filter combo in the silt. After inspection of the filter, there were zero issues and no signs of clogging, so we would have been fine continuing on for the rest of the race with the original filter.”

“We plan on keeping everything the same for next year. The filter we ran worked flawlessly and gave us the advantage we needed over the competition,” concludes Zaiden.
