Thumbs up

After watching the movies (A1, A2 and A3) all i have to say is Marc is the man.. A1 was is worst (for lack of a better word) run of the 3. A few bobbles and pushing wide. But A2 and A3 he was 'On It'. I think after A1 he made a slight car adjustment and came out and 'layed it down' for the remaining 2 mains...period. A2 and A3 his lines were identical lap-after-lap, and fast. Batteries do and might have played a small factor, but I think his biggest advantage was his driving..SUPERB!!! 2-3 second lead gain over 2nd place for both the A2 and A3, WOW!!!


BRAVO MARC!!!

Wow those vids were great.

I can't believe what sportsmanship Juho showed in A3 when he tapped Christer. Juho tried to cut the corner tight and hit Christer and pulled over and waited till he went on by will the rest of the pack also went by. You don't see that very much.

CS high grip, LRP carpet, Tweak and several wierd mixes. Someone used CS Ultra grip, but got caught in tech because of the horrible smell it produced.

Is that Tweak as in Trinity Tire Tweak? Also what determines if an additive is of the non smelly can. State side non smelly is consider Jack the Gripper, Niftech, Traction Action so I was curious if they have almost no scent what so ever or just non over powering. Thanks.

Yeah Jack the Gripp is considdered obourless - along with LRP Carpet, CS High, Orion Pink/purple (same adative, but different ppl refer to it differently!!!) They are all ok, but with slightly different charastics.
