TQ'ed. Got off to a good start in the main until a turn marshall stepped in front of my car. Finished third. I blew alot of corners with the new Tekin software and had to make adjustments to the car throughout the day. I've got it figured out now and practice yesterday was outstanding.

And i am very happy to hear about the power in the tekin speedo, as i has jut ordered a rs pro with redline motor, with set-up do you use for the speedo?



Thanks
I'm still working with a good setup.
It's so fast that I have problems handling my car with a 10,5T.
It's great you will love it.

I have rebuild my car yesterday and I'm now working on the setup.
Changed the springs but I think that I found the problem.
It was not the car, it were the front tires.
I used to much glue on the side of the tire and I think that, that was my problem.
I totally changed my setup to get more steer. The next layout has a lot if very fast chicanes. This way I can go faster true the chicanes.
I play with the grip ad the rear with my diff. I put it a bit looser to make it more stable and tighter to give the car a more loose end.

Almost finished with the car after 1 1/5 day work.

The Novak starts thursday. There was a club race there today.

The Photons put in some great runs. We took three of the seven classes.

Sportsman = TQ + Win (Cliff Dodd)

Stock TC = TQ + Win (me)

VTA = Q2 + Win (me)
