Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.
This one's starting to get interesting again.
Classic example of different driving styles. My son and myself.
Granted there's an age difference of 36 years so one has to take certain factors - eye sight, reflexes, into consideration too.
Josh (19) races a TC3. I (56) race a Yoke Special. I built both cars, with the same set up ideas - plenty of travel and softly sprung since our track is a bit on the bumpy side.
I set them both up myself since Josh works till late most evenings then shoots off to rugby training.
Come race day all he does is quickens all the transmitter parameters. He complains that I always set everything to be too slow and lazy for his liking. When I drive it after he has adjusted the transmitter to his liking, I find everything impossibly fast and responsive. Thing is of course that he can still lap over a second quicker than I can.
Same thing when he drives my Yoke. Same complaint about it being mushy.
Funny thing is that when I drive his car on his settings I am even slower than I am with the same car on my settings.
UNIVERSITY DAVE. I see you're from UK. Check out BRCA web site for Malta race report and pic of yours truly and Josh.
We are planning on doing the KO GP at West London and the following weekend's national at Snetterton, later in the year.
Joe from sunny Malta.
