How many boats do you have Nick ?

I still have not used the one you gave me ages ago, and I have the perfect park for it just at the end of my street.

Just the three. Don't you hate the way blown esc smell hangs around for ages, I can't seem to wash it off my fingers and everytime I catch a whiff of it, it's like been slapped in the face with a $100 invoice!

I did get something good out of today though, it was the first time out for my Hobby King B Grade LiPo packs and for $16 for a 5000mAh 40C pack they are bloody good. They had massive punch, much better than the hard case Yung Tangs (or whatever they're called) that I usually use and they handled a small fire next to them extraordinarily well. Just would have been good to see how long they lasted.

Yes, I agree Peli .
If I wasn't working I would be running race control today, even if it is a non-points meeting.

Hopefully my job situation will change soon with help from Ashley A.
Then I will be back on a regular basis.
Didn't realise until now how much I miss Sundays at Ryde running race control.

It's a shame there are not enough people to run race control. It's a big commitment to do from start to finish on race day. I'll be happy to assist next Saturday.

Many hands make light work.

Was down at the track today doing some untimed laps with the B4.1
Give it a flogging,the virtually new M4 holeshots are slicks

Also,finally cracked the chassis all the way across the join.....Man,its taken some HUGE hits in the 5 months it's been alive...

The best,Hiroshi sitting at the end of the rythmn section,the 7.5 at full throttle,doing the supersonic top line...had so much speed,i had to back off in the last camel a little,then squirted full to jump the last triple...

I didnt make it,should have stayed full throttle...the B4.1 hit nose in,so hard im amazed it didnt break the jump..Hiroshi was sitting 1 metre from it watching,his eyes were bigger than his head.... i think he nearly fainted when it just drove off,nothing wrong.....

AE
Thanks to Habib and Nick for helping me fix my diff bearing

The best bit,2 guys were there practising with there 4wd buggys..friends of Ross's,they give me a DVD,with 207 pics of Ryde action from a few rounds back.....I remember the guy wth the big camera shooting pics all day...

Hence,the pic above....So,Chris and Gavin(i think i got yor names right guys),thanks for the pics...some really cool stuff in there
Much appreciated....if you come back,im sure you will find people more than willing to return the favour

There are some excellent shots above, the one of Jimmy is particularly flattering, he looks almost quiet.
