Those look great. What kind of camera did you shoot those with?

Thumbs up

Hi guys!,
No, no. It was not me taking the picyures. Just found them and thought the quality was so good so your guys could see them as well.

The photographer, whoīs name is Paul Nilsson, used a Canon Eos 300D.
Not sure if he used some special lens or other technical stuff, but as soon as I have found out, Iīll let you know.

Hi Anders,

Probbably you donīt recognise me know.
Remember the guy who was siting beside you in the team managers meetings? Yes, thats me.
I must say that I liked very much to speak with Andreia and Joel in the Xray boxes. They are very nice guys who explained very well the caster set up using in Staffanstorp. One of the things they also comment was the expensive swedish women .
I took some pictures and did a short films from the A finals.
Here it is my little contributtion to the Euros story:

Nice pics MSB.
So my boys thought that Swedish girls are expensive? Well, well....
Back to the pictures.
Paul, who took the pictures used 3 different lences.
Standard 18-55mm for the pictures in the pit.
A 75-300 and a 300mm L for the pictures on the cars.
He said the Autofocus was too slow for this kind of cars. Thatīs why some are a bit blurry.

Canīt realy help more as I know nothing myself about cameras.

We Americans seem to be missing out. That just looks like too much fun racing in the rain. I am taking it the Pit tires are the best for the rain? or are those the only legal one? Also is the drivers stand covereg or do you just use a bag over the controler? If you are using a Quantum Comp. 2 do you put it in a bag too just to be safe? Thanks I think I might give this a try.

The drivers stand have a roof, so that helps. The cars are actually handling very, very good in the rain. The more, the better. The problem is the electronics....
There where many waterproof Quadraīs in the pit. Burned. But that was probably because of the, and now I hope my English is good enough, shortcircut in the motor, that give the speedo plenty of amps back into the speedo, more than water on the speedo itself. The same happend to quite a lot of Orion / Peak V2 motors. The "circutboard" inside the motor burned.
Regarding the tires, it was actually a "damp" tire and not the full wet that was best. Unfortunally, we only have the wets...

But from what I hear from the UK the QC2 is burning there too and really waterproof ESCīs like the MRT not. So itīs not because of the motors.

Yep, itīs true V12,
Mine Q2 has burned too at the second race I did with it (In Spain) and I had the motor endbell covered.
I did spoke with Reto Konig in Staffanstorp at the Euros and he said me that was a problem with the set up button/leds supplier, that wasnīt very well isolated.
Anyway, the only thing I know is that I have to pay USD$78.20 for that repair fee and suposed parts from lrp LIFE TIME WARRANTY
As I am still waiting for 3 months the return off my "repaired" ESC, I bought a new Mtroniks Cirrus for USD 100 and Iīm happy with it: It works !!
