AMGRacer sorry to here about the final at Wynnum, wheel getting torn off that's got to suck. But I tell you what TBR also drove a good race on sunday at Brendale. Until unfortunatly the rear upper arm failed, but that new Sirio he's got in his car is bloody quick. Thank's for the encouragement AMG see you soon.

Good work!! 15 laps is more than flying around Moorebank.

You gonna get an EVO when they land?

Excellent to hear that your coming over in a fortnight AMG. I'm sure you'll be at the pointy end of the field, and pull 20's should be a snap. Looking forward to seeing you there.

I wouldnt say bloody quick quite yet finchy but I hope with a bit more tweaking it might be going a bit harder next time. Also have to have a play with the gearing I think it wants to scream a bit more That JP S3 of JK's is a rocket but still only managed a best lap time of the day of 19.5s And he was flying with the staggered starts we were using.
What did you think of the IFMA starts Finchy they are a lot better than the normal of the grid starts arent they?

Hey!

Well done Sam!

Quote:
Anyway, for the benefit of the Qld'ers, and given that I am an ex Qld'er, we ran two heats, my driver TQ'd them both, the rain came, and the winner was decided on the qualifiers. This is normal procedure - can't be fairer than that.
And lucky for both you guys that you didn't have to deal with Mr "I need glasses...no, bugger that, I'll use brail driving " RJL....results coulda been a bit different really (maybe)

I will take a collection next club meeting to raise some funds for him to get some eye surgery....or maybe a bit of dental work (J/K)

heheh!

Lue

Oh and Dexter, PM me for the Kyosho pics, I have them all

RR rocks!

Yeah your right there those IFMAR starts are excellent. Nice clean get away and no pile at the first turn. I hope they keep the IFMAR starts, they are fantastic. . Yeah JK's JPs3 is a rocket hard to catch and when it's bearing down on you, down the back straight all you can think is OH SHIT. But I must say it was once again a good day of racing. I also will be playing with gearing in the next few weeks as well. I think it's time to try something else as the whole car is still box standard.

OK wanted to find out since the same happened to me.

I went thru around 4 of these buggers. Then I bought the K Factory ones and have not bent one in 18 months.
