Ok Race report for an experience. Yesterday 6/7/2003 was the race day. The day before I manage to change my MTX3 engine- RB Rody Rome to my tank V1RR/M1RR. I decide to still run V1RR as MTX3 is brand new to me and I not have enough practice with that kid.
1st Heat !
- 5 minutes, my driving condition is novice. The track grip is average ( abit slide) Foam tyres. 10 laps consistent flowing and than
suddently my gear slip - the first gear slip... Intermitten on and off, Start to loose control hit the boarder, the body shell pins fall off! Body shell flow and my car look like sailing boat just manage to complete 16 laps!
Check the car tought that due to untighten screw of the spur shaft, so tighten it, change the body clip to bigger clip ( transponder clip ) and tight with cable tie- total secure! ( anybody know other alternative of this ?
2nd Heat !
, Secure body clip seem work pretty well, but the intermitten 1st gear slip is still there !
quit frusteted with that... Other no problem only manage to make 15 laps.!
Lucky manage to joint C Main
with that 16 laps! from the 1st heat. So before the final C main I checked again the gearing system, spot the 1st gear one way bearing is cause the problem... replace it.
C main Final - Body clip still function well, the gear slip is gone!
Driving novice... yeah 3rd place !
What a start for beginners! Sooooo happy.
