i went to the track today, hoping to have a go at doing a bit of racing.
took my car, borrowed some batteries (all the shops were closed >.<) and got heaped in with the 'caravan racing' (i was originally entering for electric outlaw too, but they jsut said race there with whatever you want). just a one off, since it was the christmas fun meet. i was a bit pissed because the motor came out of alignment on lap 3 (demolition darby driving!) and i had to retire for the race. i got on for a few practice laps after while the nitro's were firing up. i realised that my stock tyres were... lets face it. rubbish on the soaked track. so i went over to the table with all the wheels and tyres... and they had been put back. so i went out for 3 more heats, with my 'caravan' (rally car tied to the back
) in the pits because the towbar went. i was drifting all over, and wiped out a few cars, but always seemed to come out best
(the plastic tub chassis strikes again
) and even flew through the air a few times off the rumble strips. i managed 3rd in one race, (out of 5 :P) and was 3rd fastest car on track (surprising, but the other 2 were minis). i never got to see my results, since they weren't posted.
but now, i'm hooked
sorry if i just wasted 5 mins of your life, i just had so much fun! i realised how slow my car was, but how little i needed to make it faster.
