Nothing like a good "argument" to get the juices flowing...

TRnut, try marking the the endbell to the can with something, I use a dremel with a cutoff disc. I haven't reversed the timing on a mod yet but I have wired one up backwards before a race.

Default Hey Fred!

Thankz for attempting to clear the air, but HH knowz, he knowz whatz up. Could you even image that TRASH he would talk if he had won the 1 on 1 race we had. don't worry, we know whatz up.

You should have seen HH at the race. He didn't even look in my direction when he was racing, maybe that is why he hit that same DOT so many times, but I hustled and turned his WARPSPEED, B Main, 5th place finishing, vehicle over to show good RCTECH sportsmanship. But it was probably my fault for him hitting the boardz time and time again anyway, sorry HH.

Well just incase anyone is interested, I finished 3rd in the Intermediate Sportsman class. Might have had a better chance at first place but I choked at the start and tapped that TQ car and waited for him to get freed up while the rest of the pack went by us. Sorry Ian A.

Here are the resultz
HH 18/5:01.90 Expert Stock 5 Minute race

BC, i think your sarcastic remarks and comments are better left elsewhere. I know Howard can drive, I know he can be fast. Some people just dont have the greatest luck all the time. But look, at least he had the audacity to step into the EXPERT stock class, not intermediate. Want to prove something? Go run with him as an EXPERT instead of going into a class where you know you shouldn't belong. From what I heard he just missed the main in expert, i'd be much happier to know that than knowing i went fast because i was in a class of skill level lower than mine for the most part...

Maybe its just wise for you to take this bashing to your home thread or whatever, because you're not discouraging people from buying a WARPSPEED car because real readers know that. I for one run a Demon and have no problems going fast with it, so shut your trap about the car.

Here we go...Axiom BC's intent is not to discourage people from investing in the Warpspeed chassis.

Talking Race Report.

Race report.

Norwegian cup summer season, round 5.
Stock 27T & modified 12T.
Kodal 1:8 racetrack in Vestfold, Norway

Car: TC3 DEMON

Monster Stock geared at 6.43

Q1: A good run, made a few mistakes. Hooked a curb and ended up in the grass once but the turn marshal was right on it.
Q2: Changed from Sorex 32 to CS27 tires and LRP Asphalt traction compound. Bad choice, lousy grip. 5 sec down from Q1.
Q3: Radio problems, didnít even get out of the start line upÖ

My time from Q1 was pretty good so I got 6th position in the starting grid (I had 14 laps 5.00.87, #5 had 14 laps 5.00.86Ö).

The track was heating up quite a bit now so I decided to try Sorex 36. I also wasnít satisfied with the power in the Monster Stock motor so I rebuilt one of my Peak Hellfire motors with Putnam blue and green brushes.

Peak Hellfire geared at 6.00

F1: Good clean start. On the 3rd lap I was slowly passing number 4 on the outside in the long sweeper after the straight. Suddenly we bumped in to each other and spun out a little, nothing spectacular. We were both on the right course in a second. I felt that something had happened to the car and yes, in the next corner I spun out, bad! Game over. The main drive shaft (carbon) had snapped. I have never snapped one before. I suspect that it could be material fatigue, it was 1,5 year old.

F2: Sorex 36 didnít work too well so I decided to try the CS27ís again but without traction compound, some of the other drivers had good success with these tires in F1. They did not work for me this time eitherÖ Now the car was pulling to the left quite badly and I was not concentrating and made some mistakes. Ended 6th. The steel drive axle on the left front had been bent in the incident in F1 so this caused the pulling to the left. Switched to alu bones. Switched back to the Sorex 32ís

F3: clean but slow start, dropped to 9th through the first few turns. Car was working perfect now so I started to climb in the field. After 3,5 minutes I was in 3rd position. I could have tried to catch up with number two, but he had a quite big gap and my tires were starting to fade. So I decided to back off a little and just make sure that the car on 4th didnít catch up. I ended 3rd.

Ended 5th in total.

Wrap up: Bad luck in F1 also resulting in problems in F2 wasnít fun but hey, thatís racing!
I did well in F3 and in total I had a lot of fun, thatís whatís counts in my book!
One thing is for sure, I have never been as fast as I am now, and I like to believe that the DEMON conversion have contributed to this.

Iíll post my set-up once I have put it down. The car was easy to drive and suits a medium bumpy, low grip asphalt track made for 1:8 nitro cars (large)

I have a few pictures of the car but I donít know how to post them (I need a URL referring to the picture right?). I donít have a website and I only have Internet access at work so I cant have stuff on the computer that is not work related.
Is there some kind of free private picture database around where I can upload pictures to? (Wow, suddenly I felt really old!!!)

PS. if this is too much, please let me know! I tend to write novels...
