I find that when things go wrong, generally they all go wrong at the same time.
My weekend wasn't to clever. I've only broken my Mugen MBX4RR twice in about 5 years. On one occasion, I hit a post and broke the front upper wishbone. On an another occassion, I 'tangled' with a wayward Hyper 7 and broke a shock shaft. Sure I've replaced worn out components, but rarely has anything actually broken during rough and tumble.
I couldn't keep the nose down on our triple, the take-off part of the first jump has rutted quite badly since the previous days racing and really needed maintenance. On one of my attempts, I actually landed on the rear wing really hard - this not only bent the rear shock tower forward, but broke all four screws that holds the wing mounts on
Despite this, I did manage to finish the tank and then brought it in. Also, the Medial Pro Turbo Rat tyres kept coming off the rims.
My Savage lost the grub-screw pins into BOTH front and rear drive cups
I thought I had spares, but actually only had the smaller size pins - so no good.
Having pretty much given up on my own racing, I made myself useful trying to start somebody else's brand new RS4 .15 engine, whilst doing so I broke off one of the pins on my rotostart shaft.
What's more, the bloody thing didn't start either!!
At least the sun was shining.......
How about you guys - have you ever had a weekend/s like this?
