Yeah I did at the DHI Cup last week-end. I had my practice ruined due to interference on the throttle though, so I ended up on a 35th place. Should have been around 20th place without the problems. Not the car's fault at all. - There was also a Photon in the SuperStock A final, a swedish driver.

Next week-end I will drive the 4th round of the national championships, on a track I know really well, so it will be easy to compare the car against the one I had before. _ The practice already convinced me that I did the right move

I was at the ets series in Kastellaun in october.
It was the first time for me with this car on carpet.
I qualified 19th and ended in 15th if I remeber right.
The guy who made the a-main at dhi cup, ola westholm,
was there, too and made the b-main,too.
I think he got 14th or something like that.

Yes I have it now.

Thanks, it looks great.

The post came yesterday but only left a letter that I must pick it up at the post office.
I called with the post office and complained that he didn't gave the post.
It's the 3rd time I complained about this guy and I hope it was his last working day.

The pin. The pin is very tight.

I build in the spool and it lookes great.
No play with the drive shafts and it runs very smooth.

Definitely had the fastest car at the track today. Unfortunately, I had the second fastest fingers. Car ran great all day long. Made a couple of minor changes to the setup and beat my previous best qualifier by 6 seconds. Still had some mistakes that cost me valuable time, but not because of the car.
