Opps no races todays just Club day for bashen the track.
WheelNut - Thanks for joining in
, I have been on several other threads and posted introductions & questions, I found every one very freindly and willing to help also got some real good advice(thanks crew).
Well back to the club day -
Firstly I arived at 8:45am to find out that their was no races today only an all in club day for practise(small crew 10 - 12 people all nitro, 5 Truggies 1 Buggie) so after Intro's I got straight on the track. Wow this proved very embarrassing
every time I powered up the Evader did a 180 after 15mins I asked for some advice they were very helpful.
Played around with the slipper clutch (loosened) and shockys (lowered back end & raised the front trying to get more traction at the back and less at the nose). Ajusted and drove several times finaly this made an improvement how ever I still drove like a crab.
One of the blokes who races both on road and offroad recognized
me from last weekend and had a drive to see if it was me or the car. PHEW! he was as bad as I was with it, we all decided it was the tyres.
Now that was sorted & I wasn't so embarrassed I just drove slower how ever the Truggies thought I would be a good speed hump and one by one they had a go, much to my amazment one by one they broke things (one broke a dog bone
when he hit me at full speed). I was happy to be the last one standing with all nitro cars broken this supprised them as well. After they left my mate and I were just driving the track and what I can only guess is the servo stuffed up (lost steering) so that was the end of the day of to the shop Monday
lessons learn't - Yes Tyres make a huge differance can't wait to get my new back race tyres to see how I go
. Electric Evaders make good Nitro Truggie speed humps
. Every one was right in the other threads need better servo for the electric Evader. Good bunch off crew at the club.
