Typical Tony, thorough in everything and sneaking an extra days practice. I hear its raining down there at the moment anyway. I expect to be there around eleven tomorrow. Hope that will give enough time to get the car sorted.

Ron, the link for coverage is
http://live.castlehillraceway.com/

I'm told it will only work if they can pick up the wireless signal at the track. Perhaps next year, there will be a live video link. I know it has been discussed.

I've had a 21t in my M03 before. It fit, but made a bit of noise. All one would have to do to fit a bigger pinion is modify the motor mounting holes. Not legal, but it will work.

Yes Tony and two of his crew will be there. I'm looking forward to meeting those guys and hopefully giving them some good competition on the track.

It's a shame there aren't more entries for the Mini class but the ones who are there seem to represent most of the best drivers in the class. It should be close racing.

Default Corsair

Thanks for the help. Photo Bucket did the trick.

I have finished the body but have not taken photos yet. This is just for show I am not going to race it.
It's got alloy shocks,carbon shafts,adjustable upper arms, Xray bearings and carbon end plates.
Still a few pretty bits to go like square lower plastic arms and carbon servo brace.
