Someone collided with you isn't it? That why your belt stripped, at least that was what i was told.

If i recall correctly, it was you who told me that i should change belts before every big race, but the master himself didn't follow his own beliefs. hahaha...

Anyway, you are a by far the fastest nitro driver in sg, congrats on your 1/10 win! 1/8 was also yours for the taking, just bad luck again.

Great FIRST showing of the MTX5 with just one day of practice with the new car before the race.

Snowy and gang did really well, but also had problems in the finals, i thought it was the one way?! Was fun having the Aussies guys come all the way to support the race.

Yes, was a Very good event, Love the Singapore Layout.

Came in at 57 Fonts and 61 Rears. Couldn't of gone any longer was anticipating a 2nd tire change through out the race.
have to hand it to the Standard contact Rims ( the ease of taking them on and of compared to lightweight >.<) Couldn't of done it without X4 cheers Champ.

This was on 35 front 37 rear O.o? anyone else get this type of wear? or is it my driving?

Cheers Blake Young

Hey Blake! I think you got me confused with Daniel, i dun remember changing ur tyres. Hahaha... no worries though mate.

Normally in our club races, most of us would be on a totally new set of 35 front and rears and would change for another totally new set of 35s again around the midway mark (est 20-25 mins) for a 45 min main. The tyres would normally be around 63mm on the fronts and 69mm on the rears after that.

hope to see you guys again next year!

Oops.. haha..

Hey Blake, I believe you trued your tires? I think your starting size were good for qualifyings..

Because our track is alittle abrasive, we normally run new sets as X4 says.

I like those carbon wings and stiffeners.. But Duno where to get them

I think the guns you mentioned are the same.. Just change the o- rings in them and it be fine.

Last time the RB guns are good but expensive.. I got a good deal off a mate on a nova gun but really it's the same as the KMs and the xceeds.. :/
