What happened, I couldnt hang around and watch the A Main.

It was a bit frustrating for me with engine tune. The Tempe tune is way different to Moorebank and it was running a wee bit too hot. It sat at around 100 to 110 during qualifying but it got a little higher in the B main and i eventually did a plug. Might start from scratch with the engine tuning.

Craig had the opposite problem and could not last 3 minutes. Very quick, but very thirsty.

lol, yeah run time was atrocious with the CRF carb and the tune was classic CRF inconsistent, plus I could go flat through the sweeper which meant I wasn't going real fast down the straight. Cant wait to take the RRR back to the 'bank, it handled so nicely out of the box, with a couple of changes and a proper engine it'll be amain for sure. The mugen and I have some unfinished business to take car of first though, I'm coming for ya BK!

Special race night on Tuesday, September 30th.

Due to the demand for more racing now its getting warmer, SMA will hold a meeting on Tuesday Sept 30 with a bit of a difference. It will be a development night when the novices are "given" a mentor to help with car setup, general knowledge and also tutoring on the driverís stand, during the racing.

The Novices will have their own track layout the rest will run a new layout for that night.

More details on www.smaracing.org
Novice night isnt untill next Tuesday
