Angry

well i beat my best bud by just simply over taken him on the outside on the 3rd consecutive turn

i must admit though he is good in entries, but i still beated him

right after i won it was my bros turn to play the game

he was up againt the tl-01...he also beat him (which mean i gotta go againt my bro)

he was over taken in the inside on the first hairpin but the tl-01 hit the inside wall..after the 5 turn my bro past him up from the outside (just like me ) and he swooped into the tl-01's LINE with a higher angle!!!

i was pretty shocked that my bro can do that!

well it was against me and my bro now

i was nervous like crazy... and to even think...MY BROTHER!!!

it was hard

i was leading first and ran a good lap so far but on the last turn i got smashed by my brother causing my right spindle to snap!!!

i was FUROUS

i was so scared i lost..but it was my turn to chase...

i had no parts so i had to use super glue...i was aloowed to have a quick practice run right before the last heat

my tc3 was having trouble on smooth left turn drifts and would slightly slip outward...all i have left is a luck and skill

i was chasing and i got him on the 3rd corner but the consecutive left turn
i was past again in the inside as soon as i sliped outward

there was only 2 more turns and this striaght that i was on right before the 5th turn (right haipin) i went for it on the outside line in the entry because i knew it was a long one that i can handle with all my power so i turned left...i understeered with the stress on my right spindle!!! i let off the power and my bother (again) hit me while he was doing the inertia drift and taped my left rearend causing me to be able to drift on the left turn (i dont think the crowd knew about me understeering) i pressed in the throttle using all the momentom i have from that tap from my bro, i did the DRIFT!!!

my bro from the tap caused him to lose his line and hit the inside wall and spin out

i WON THE DRIFT SHOW OFF!!! !!! !!! !!!

i was clearified as WINNER and my bro as second and the 3rd was my bud

the only negitive side of this is that i broke my right spindle and wasted about 30 cells of nicad 2400s!!! i have no more cells accept my last 2400 nicad pack ...if only i had nimahs




notice my cracked front right fender




all my cells ...GONE

ahh yes sorry bout that



mine looks a bit dirty now from drifting

one of them i just super glued but i just used tape after coz i didnt want to waste my glue

i also just blew up my 17*2 yestuday during a practice heat thing with my friends

i got my old 21*2 and stuck it into a old white speedgems can and speedgems extreme end bell

its like nothing happened...but the life of the communtator seems to be short
