they're a hopup, KO doesn't do standard spec cars
They are the same part for the R2 and R3.
Had some great racing tonight, the red and white springs are working a treat
There was more competition tonight than there's been in a long time, with a guy who used to be the fastest in the club making a return after two years, this was his second week and he certainly doesn't seem too rusty
I managed to drive very well myself though and pipped him for 3rd place on the grid not far behind the two usual leaders.
The final was very close too, I got off to a decent start and spent the first half of the race battling with the two behind me, actualy got behind one for a while, tried a pass and got spun, rejoined behind the other with the first guy behind me, tried another pass after following for a couple laps and again I ended up facing the wrong way, rejoined behind both and then within a lap they collided and I was away
The guy who was just returning was then trying to chase me down for the rest of the race but I was busy trying to catch the guy in second. I caught him for the last four or five laps and almost made a pass a couple of times but had to back out. Then he collided with a car he was lapping and was facing the wrong way in the middle of a corner, I thought I'd been lucky and could get past but I actualy ran into them and we ended up getting going in pretty much the same position and without loosing too much time. So close, I just didn't quite have the time to get another pass attempt in and finished right on his rear bumper for 3rd place. Was good to have a consistant car and such close racing, one crash that required marshaling would have meant dropping several places.
It was thanks to my Fukuyama cells staying so strong throughout the race that I managed to real in 2nd place.
Should have a pretty good starting point for Sunday's Scottish GP, going to be tough with 120 drivers
heats don't seem to be based on ability too much though
maybe it's because my entry only just made it in. Those lapped cars better move fast
