What gets me, is that after the race when I complain that I need different rear tyres, People ( you know who you are) drive my car faultlessly for lap after lap commenting like "Man that's dialled in" or "best handling Losi I've ever driven". But these people could drive a fridge around the track and still get fastest laps
Don't get me wrong had a great day but I raced like shit

See you next time, and lets get a cheap notebook to program these speed controllers.


Can't wait to get mine back, Hobbywing is great value for money, but I want my Tekin back

Hi Guys, cheers for a great days racing. I have to admit my day didn't get off to the best start,1. Left my transmitter at home so had to make a dash back to Hornsby, 2. 2nd lap of 1st 2wd stock race and i snapped a rear shock tower, 3. Truck kept thermaling at the 4 min 30 sec mark in 1st 2 races (its never happened before!!)
Then my day improved until the last round of finals when Steve and I had an unfortunate racing incident which left me with the B4 with a broken arm ( no need to apologise Steve! and the Truck thermalled again in its last final.
Apart from that a good day, I do agree that the gap between races and the non organisation of drivers considering the length of time between runs was frustrating considering some of us ran 2 classes and were always on time and left waiting.
Big thanks to Steve for taking some pics of my Truck, i'll be posting a few pics and a link soon.

Thank you to all the interclub drivers who raced today, it was great to see new and familiar faces, and very helpful to hear a different perspective on our club,
Steve

Just wanted to say that I had a great day of racing today and even if I couldn't keep up with the superstars Shane and Roman, I had a ball and did two of my fastest races this year.

I learnt something today from running my Top Force with a slower motor and gearing and that is slow and steady can win the day. Next meet I WILL do 9 laps, I got bloody close today and if I can do it with a 17 year old car and 17.5 motor, I can bloody well do it with a B4 with a 13.5, I've just go to run my own race and forget about trying to race others.

Anybody selling a B44 for $50 (that's my budget at the moment) let me know! I'm hooked on 4wd.

Nick
