I am struggling to decide which car to run this time as I've invested in a new SRT chassis from Barry since last time and I've got a LifeLike running now which was campaigned successfully to a 3rd place in Nascar. Also I was a bit disappointed by my usual SG+ (aka The Beast) on Sunday so that is almost certainly going to be "rested" this round until I can unravel just what went wrong.
Good job I haven't picked up a 1.5 Mega G or a Marchon yet or I'd never make a decision!
Hopefully I can get a test circuit set up at some point before the race to do some final testing.
This is only a thought and may not be possible----on looking on flea bay I saw a truck/trailer combo on offer is it possible (and chep enough) to get hold of 4 of these from the usa and have a truck night(possibly as part of nascar night or even a charity event?) . Would be interesting to hear anyones views on this or other types of races people would like to see, see you all Wednesday
Oh what lovely cars fellas....?.!.?.! Not much to choose from for me........Sanded way to much rubber off my lifelikes rearend.......It will be dragging its a### around the track... Looking forward to a scrape around the circuit and being lapped good and proper.......Cheers Mike D
Another big night in Goring-by-Sea, with 32 racers finally making the grid.
Some had to bring their homework.
One of the big highlights was diesel's stunning scoreboard, which meant racers could view their scores after the heats on a screen 20 feet away from Race Control. I have no idea how he did it, but it worked brilliantly
Some great junior performances, but the 'A' final was a strictly adults-only affair.
Congratulations to John for the win and Ollie for his first junior medal
Results will follow tomorrow. Plus updated championship tables, video and race report over the next few days.
Good racing last night although I had a bit of a mare personally. I brought two friends (both called Dave) along and the three cars. They both opted to use the LifeLike and proceeded to put good scores in except for one run on white and the other had a bad yellow run.
I started in the SRT on white and was dreadful, switched to the SG+ and only managed to improve by 3 laps and then used the LifeLike to put myself in the A Final. But as one of the Dave's had out qualified me by 25 parts of a lap, he used the LifeLike and raced to 2nd overall whereas I was stuck back in the white lane and the SG+ falling off all over the place! I certainly kept Tim and Will busy in Turn One!
Meanwhile the other Dave used the LifeLike to great effect in the B Final to win it from pole and I think he did more laps than any of the A finalists too.
Which means I really should trust my LifeLike a bit more and start driving it faster as it was capable of being at or around John's pace as both Daves showed.
John's car was very quick though. Really enjoyed seeing it go. I dare you to put that one through your hypersonic cleaner John!!
At the end of the Mod season, can we please set up a head to head race between John's Marchon and Robin's LifeLike T from April?
I'm liking the new tech as well and once the niggles are ironed out, it will be great.
Good to see the Juniors doing so well with race winner Ollie in the B and Juniors winning both the C and D finals I think. Hannah was impressive and very happy when she beat Dad Andrew!
Two Mod rounds to go and I think I may have found my chassis for the rest of the season. I just need to make some decent body mounts.
