brakes were on all the stages last year, or has my mind deleted the horrible experience of no brakes.

Plea for brakes on all stages basically - if you don't want/like brakes you can just snip the brake wire on your controller and its sorted.

Not sure if anyone else found that Cherwell 1 at the Oxford round had no brakes for me - it was just a quick dab of throttle and then watch the car coast 6 ft and round the corner - never felt in control of my cars on that stage.
Pasiro - if you can get to Northampton (just off J15) on the M1 happy to drive you the rest of the way to Farnham

Re brakes - prefer with but will drive anything

Cherwell 1 - was the smooth flowing routed one with the excellent timing system and oil cans to catch out the over excuberent - I think it was just me then, might have to double check my controller!!
Ensure the pulleys are lined up and the band is not catching on anything. Also ensure the sideways movement in the front axle is minimal so the pulley's remain in line. I've never had an issue as long as I have ensured all the above are sorted.

I like bill will change my motor if any don't have brakes because the nsr long can motors have bugger all natural braking. Need to know ASAP.

thanks for the info - the nsr porsche with no brakes is horrible to drive, a quick blip and watch it coast round for the next 10ft. It would be more satisfying to push it round and make the corresponding vroom vroom noises (which is actually the secret of any of my slot rally success!)
Well done Farnham, event went smoothly with some interesting stages. Wel done to Phil b, Phil f for beating me and also young mr field who showed us old uns how to race a nsr 997. All to play for a wye but will need to drive quicker!
