I just want to say "GOOD LUCK" to all our G4S crew this weekend that are racing. I think Patto is at a 2 day event representing the G4S of coarse. And I know that our good friends, Hodak...Toy000...and I'm sure I'm missing some of you all. But regarless Go and smash the competition guys!!! Best of luck and don't trash your cars. Later all!

Well I spent another 30 min on the car today, with work and school I have like no time for this thing but im trying to do it little by little.

its starting to look more and more like a sedan here's what I got so far.

Here's a little design flaw I found on the car, the upside down belt tensioner conflicts with the bottom brake screw..... thats gonna be a hassle to adjust once the car gets dirty and you need more brake power or just to re adjust it

Well, I finally got a new body painted. I think I bit off more than I could chew. It is the first one I've done using liquid mask and waterbased paints. I learned a lot, and I think it will be easier the next time. For one thing I had quite a few areas that look like "bleed". I think in some cases I was scratching the previous color without realizing it before spraying the next. The waterbase paint seems soft, not as durable, to me. I painted the headlights instead of decals, pretty happy with the results. And I tried a carbon fiber effect. It doesn't show in the pics, but I really like the result.

I also learned a big no no. DO NOT try to add one more coat of white after removing the mask. I thought it was a little thin towards the front end, so I taped some paper down to block the windows, but some how it sucked the fumes or something in there and ruined them. This was from a spray can of white, non-waterbased, I had and I didn't want to get the air brush and everything back out. I was so pissed I couldn't see for a few seconds I guess it boils down to slowing down and taking my time.....

I also got the Ninja 12 installed along with the Speed Shot. I'm stoked to run it in....

Hey guys.
well very mixed bag from the weekend.
Saturday, qualifying, had good pace to start with firts time out, and made a few small changes after every qualifier and things improved. just couldnt crack the 18 laps for 5 mins. just 0.467 seconds off.
saturday night proved good company and some heavy drinking.
i started to influence the TQ driver to keep drinking, hoping he ight wake up the next morning bit seedy, well i think all 6 of us woke up feeling the same so early start and some work on the car before we head off to the track was really challenging as you do have some greasy food to try and wash the previouse night away, didnt quite help
so after truing some tires for the final and last qualifier. was chasing some more rear grip, and went out for a quick test and all was good. last qualifier was the best yet. car was good and think i set the quickest lap for the 2 days so far. so after every thing was sorted the top 3 went straight to the A final. MTX4 1st then me, G4S and Ed with a G4S.
now this is where things got mixed up. we had like nearly 2 hours before we run again, and any momentum was lost. in hot sunny weather , and feeling a bit seedy, things were getting hard but the final came, had a warm up and i think the car was as good as it had been all weekend. had a great start, took first for a few laps then made an error and had to let the next 4 guys through as i was pointing the wrong way, so playing catch up i was gaining every lap, i had an incident which i think chunked my tires a bit and the car was not as good anymore. after second fuel stop, i had regained 2nd and due to others having some probs, had a 3 lap buffer. 8 mins of the 20 min final remaining, thinks looked great for a second finish. then here we go !
going on to the back straight, i saw a slower car sitting to the inside of the track, didnt back off as he wasnt moving, then as i approached, he turned right infront of me and i T boned at full throttle, saw some bits fly and, let out some words of dissapointment. now the car was put back on the track, and was instant spin out on power, so i made it back to the pits and inspected the car, no side belt. so i ran to get a nother to put on, and maybe salvage a third, but no could not do that. front side pulley missing. impact was head on, and no other visable damage, but yet the impact of the t bone seemed to instantly snap the front layshaft. was a very clean break where the pulley screws on to. if this shaft was a bit stronger material, i dont think it would have snapped, and then the belt wouldnt have come off. so i would have been able to drive on and finish. so this is another issue of the ED trans which i think needs addressing. ok needs to be light, but what about the strength of the parts, we spend our hard earned money on ?
anyway finished 8th on the day. good experience at a different track, but bad result at the end of the day. hope others had a better days racing
