Back from tonights racing, things weren't great. Moving the front shocks out helped stop the understeer, need a softer spring on the rear though, it just can't get enough grip.
I was on a very good run in the second qualifier, even though I was using my old cells, which felt a lot slower I was driving very neatly, then the last three laps I dumped and lost a lot of time. The time still turned out to be my best and got me 6th in the A but had I not dumped I would have been closer to 2nd place
If I had been driving like that all night and using good cells I would have been fighting for first place. Rest of the night was filled with small mistakes and not being completely happy with the car setup. The one way up front was acting like you'd expect, with not quite enough grip, it was just a little too tricky to be consistant with the way I was driving tonight. Finished 4th in the final, but it was messy. Sitting fourth in the championship, I'll have a good fight on my hands to hold onto my position, it's one of the closest championships in a long time for the top 5 places.

Sounds like you did pretty good actually Herm. Just think of how much better it will drive with some rear traction

Just some info for you Web Special guys. It looks like we have to buy any replacement parts directly. Alex Racing referred me to Xenon who is the export company. I'm still waiting for e-mail replies, but hopefully I'll be able to figure out how we can get our spare parts

Xenon told me this:

Please contact to Speedtech. We can't directly export
because Speedtech have exclusive distribution of Alex
Racing products in USA.

Hmm, I didn't think Steve would be able to get anything because of those registration sheets we had to sent in. Something tells me that if we want anything orange... we are going to have to work to get it.

It wont be that hard.. I allready have a bunch of Ornage drive shafts and front one ways that I ordered that came in today...I`m sure Steve can get what you guys want since he is the US importer for the Car...just hit him up for your needs.and if he can`t...I`ll help him get them..
