Two fantastic drivers racing for the world championship in A3. Couldn't get much better than that! Well done to Marc. He needed to win with the fastest time of day and he nailed it! Go the 416!!!

Thanks for the sweet ride Sohlman.
Cool. I'm glad you're enjoying it. I didn't really want to sell it, but I didn't really need two 416s. Your gain.

That's a trick used to make the steering knuckle more rigid. Usually use grub screws to do it though. But I wonder why it is only on the left side... maybe because the fast sweepers are all right turns...

I want those blue springs

Either way great race.

Yeah, it may have something to do with the sweeper to sweeper layout of the Worlds track. But why not use a set (grub) screw? Maybe it was a last minute thing. Or he's an all powerful super god of touring car racing and we should just put it on our cars to win more races.

Blue Sharpie markers are faster than any other color. I've tested them all.

lol, how did you guys knew about these springs being coloured blue with a marker?
Was this mentioned somewhere, maybe?

I 'v found images (movie) about the second and the thirth leg of the A-main?
Is there some footage of the first lag also online somewhere?

If you look closely you can tell theres inconsistancies in the color. Especially on the servo heatsink. Ever try to make a sharpie look perfect? Theres always darker and lighter areas from overlapping lines. Looks good on the car though!

Actually I think that screw is an extra motor screw and the knuckle is a convenient place to store it. Hara has also does the same in the past.
