Just drop past my place on your way, if I'm not here I will leave wing out for you; you drive past anyway.

Now off to bed.

BTW, if anybody wants some used rims I'm in the process of recycling about 30 sets of 2wd, 4wd and truck wheels. Couldn't bring myself to bin them and I can't use them all so PM me and I'll put some aside for you.

Nick
What were you using to separate the rim and tyre?

The easiest way is to soak them in acetone for 2 days then they just peel off like there was no glue whatsoever..

Exactly, that is why it is going to take a few weeks to complete, I can only do about 5 or 6 at a time. But the results are quite good, I usually use the oven but this way tends to be little bit cleaner.

Thanks Roman for running race control, you were on form today!!!
Thanks to everyone who helped out with the track, looked like crap BUT drove very well, with good grip and low tyre wear
1st meet this year and was quite pleased with my effort
absolutely shagged but bought a bottle of Bourbon on the way home as wife and kids are out for the evening
good to see that contrary to what some people might have you believe, Ryde's is alive and kicking
see you all soon, maybe I'll do a Saturday next, so I can check out the (new) lights

Yeah thanks to the usual suspects for today, I had a great time even if I did drive like crap.

Jasper is still crapping on about being "the champion"; think I might have to get a 2WD ready for him for next time to bring him down a notch or two, he will go on like this for days!

i would also like to say thanks for a great day mixing it with the mod drivers, although i could not run the last 2 legs (mechanical failure caused by operator error)

Yeah, with the driving skills Jazzy's got, I'd be ordering a paternity test

I'll ignore that last comment! And Peli before you start....SHUT UP! I was going to say something else but don't want to upset the moderator.

Anyway the results are up on the website.

Thanks Steve.
Wish I could join you and partake the bourbon.

I really enjoyed myself today, thanks to everyone that helped run the meeting.

I am very impressed with 6 year old Jazzy's RC skills, must take after his mum.

Go mod open truggy !

That's competition Icing!

And you can start calling it the hand when it starts looking like one again, for now it should be "the claw".

Default +8mm Chassis for B4

For anybody that didn't know. There's an extended chassis out for the B4.

I heard there was a cool rear cab body that fits the longer chassis too
