And you tried guessing which one was MasterD.

Now see them drive here :

Of course, the video was edited to protect the innocent.

By the way, this was the race which was closed to most of us because it was meant for first timers only.

Enjoy!

HEY!!!!...i tot you were a Panther user. Windoze XP????!!! Unacceptable.

I soak them for 10 to 15 minutes. From time to time, I reapply them. Just leave them to dry. No washing in soap and water needed.
The only downside to soaking them is it weakent the belts allowing more stretch. Thats why I prefer the spray mollybond.

Cool. I'll try to scout for a mollybond spray ! Perhaps somekind of belt dressing spray solution would work too.

Contrary to making it weak, I have found my front belt to be still in good working order after now close to 12 liters of fuel !

The newer belts might be better. I stopped soaking them back when I was running a Racer2... but old habits are hard to break

As far as I know, that video clip was done about 1 or 2 years ago. That was my first race. It was a GP A main race and with all the bulldozing I did on Salleh's car, I ended 4th ! Not bad eh?

Nobody ran an EP car as far as I know...

Ummm, I hope you're aware that the Racer2 and the 710 are completely different animals !
