The Spada had its first race today, I was the only nitro 12th, so was in with the 1:10th nitro tourers.
It was another cold day, just 6 dgrees C and a strong wind too, so i had to watch for gusts blowing me off line...
I'am was using 16% Tornado fuel, and with the engine setup, a full tank was lasting me just over the 5 minutes qualifying time luckily, i set my best time in round 2 (see attached) I qualified 3rd in the "A" final in the end.
In the 15 minute final I got a good start through to second place, then I took the lead after a mistake from the pole man...then weaving through slower traffic I got tagged out (accidently) and the drive belt jumped off the front pulley...dnf
There was a lot of interest from people at the club, and some have said they will get one now.
I lent my camera to a club member to film the final, its only some short clips, but you can see theres not much speed difference.
