Default Carpetwars 4 (UK) vids on Youtube (& an FTP site)

I have started putting the videos I have of the UK Carpetwars 4 event onto Youtube, it's an indoor TC Rubber event with around 120 drivers including current world champ Andy Moore, and err, me
All cars were using LRP VTEC 24R Tyres.

Search for carpetwars on youtube

There should be 9 or so vids by the time I've finished uploading, they are from 90Mb files so it's taking a while

Sorry, only one of the 19t finals

Hope you enjoy, I've wasted lots of time doing these

There's a couple of Mod qualifiers to go up, but I can't remember who won those.

I don't have anything at all from Rug Racers, I'll try to remember next time we go there for the final round.

I also have some vids of the KO GP 2006 but they need converting to go onto my computer.

Not entirely sure, the accident on the straight with an oncoming car did some damage to the body which was affecting the handling, not sure whether the crash later was the body or a fit of pique.
Adam hadn't had much luck in the earlier finals either.

I was sitting right in front of the spot where adam t-boned rich b - very big hit. his car seems to turn great left and badly right after that! i hope he had another issue to crash like esc, radio as he was still running 3rd or 4th.

Fair enough, you saw on the vids what I saw, loud bang and a set of cells tripling in length while ejecting themselves from the car

i thought that too & promptly put my foot in it & Mattw put me right

apparently the prototypes went back to schuy for the toy fair & to finalise bits for customer car (due out soon)

Adam does go so well with the mi2 though ,did feel he was on andy`s & chris case in 3 rd leg till back markers & bad luck intervened

any history now
see how many buy it when it comes out
still feel last years race with andy & spashett for the best i have seen for the full 5 mins ,site to behold

Adams big crash was caused by the first one. On the initial impact, the esc came apart, and then shorted out, hence flat out into the wall. I was told this by one of the other schui drivers.

i see that you done well in first & second final
that 7.9 worked alot better for you
and i stayed for your first final like you asked to see if the ratio worked so you can tell me off if it didn`t

good vids though
