I'll take that bet. You can see in the pic it's not a diff in the front. It's either a 1-way or a spool and knowing that track I would say spool.

You're in an advantage position because you can protect you're lead to some degree. I don't mean any disrespect I agree with your statements.

I also agree with the "get a more normal driver" I can't wait for that more normal driver to be me

Apparently spares wont be out for a few days after the release, but that isn't bad.
I was there and watched the final, Andy was clearly pulling away from Craig before he lost drive. Looks like his spur gear holder had come loose on the layshaft. YES it happens even to World Champions !

When you read a race report from a distributor you should always read between the lines, as they will always write things the way that suits them best. For example I am not too sure he "decided" to park up, to me it looked like a "retired" after a crash.

Still Craig's car was dialed, and I may say, it was dialed even on saturday practice. I'm not going to buy one though, it just doesn't do it for me.

Well when you look at the results they speak for themselves... Craig WON !

I am sure as time goes on Craig will be getting the car to go faster and he will be pulling away (Can I get an AMEN).

Just think Blue and the world is a better place

Thanks,

I was wondering how that happened????? but then again it was in the UK and I am not sure how their scoring system works.

Craig,

Great show over the weekend. We look forward to see what you can make the TC5 do now!



AE keep up the good work

Not sure how the scoring system works either as on all the reports it says that Chris Grainger won round 1 but then on the points table it lists the two races as round 1 and round 2. If that is the case then Craig did win the second round of the championship.

andy moore won the first leg and craig won the second but both of them didn't do well on the runs that they didn't win. Chris Grainger had a 3rd and a 2nd finish making him the over all winner for the weekend.

Stu
Bugger... and you know the stupid thing is that I didn't even bother to look at the photo ALL BETS ARE NOW CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am a man of my word though. Once that fact is verified I will happily send you 5 dollars via paypal. Please be aware though, that I am Australian. I see that you are from the Mother Country. $5 AUD translates to 2.08

Please someone verify this fact so that Stu can collect

Cheers,
Warwick.
