I can jot down a setup thats working for me if you like... Jilles and the rest of the TRF crew are running quite different to the Futaba cup setup now... the track has quite bonkers traction. Never been somewhere were your traction rolling on asphalt, with 36 grade tyres.. nuts!

It's proper busy though, during the free practise it's set up by groups round the hour... generally always at least 15 cars on the track at once. It's caused me some radio issues today... the result of which... well, I'm doing a postcard from TITC here

hey man, read your updates. Looks like its going to be a challenge keeping the cars flat since traction rolling is a problem and will probably get worse as the days pass. How are the pit areas? I'm trying to imagine how it will hold 600 people! and, um, the toilets?

Also, what radio are you using?

They've covered over the drift track for the pitting... I think they should (just) be able to get everyone in, will find out tomorrow!

Toilets are fine Even got all the local takeaway joints setup for food too, walk to the table, place your order, half hour later, dude on bike turns up with the food!

As for my radio, it's KO Esprit3 with a spektrum module... but it does seem like I'm not the only one having issues, number of other guys are having glitches, but I honestly think its down to the shear number of people running on track, or even waiting with their radios on. At one point today I looked up to the rostrum, and it was three rows deep with people wanting to drive... I ran again late on this evening, and it was all fine again, hey ho!

Roll on tomorrow, should be able to get a bit of an indication of whose fast or not

Loving the posts and the blog Ed

Ed has done a killer job on those shells

Brings back fond memories of the Doris trip to the 12th Worlds at RCS. Mad taxi rides. Mopeds delivering fast food orders. Finding inventive ways to keep cool. Happy days!

Keep up the good work fella

Cheers,
Mark

Mmmmm - Jonny Bowden introduced Gary D and I to the ice cold towels. Worked really well on the back of the neck immediately after racing (hot) and marshalling in the sun (really hot).

I'll tell Rich about his new nickname next time I see him then

It's been a long while since I raced FF in the Eurocup. Or a mini for that matter. It's all about the corner speed
