Heads up no rules[except safety] door car racing May 17th - 19th, entry is looking good even if the 4 cylinder class looks like a VW race Grin

Weather wasnt so kind to us Angry  we got 2 passes friday then none saturday, they did manage to run cars late on saturday but when we were 2 from front someone leaked on track bad enough that they stopped it for the day, was probably a good thing as my visor and windscreen were fogging up very quickly by then and car was covered in moisture!!!
Sunday was better but rain still slowed things down, we managed to get to semi finals then lost at i red lit!!!  They had hot lapped us as was getting so late and with only 15mins between rounds we couldnt cool car down enough and I believe clutch was just to hot from previous pass so dragged harder when I tried to hold it on brake in stage but these things happen Roll Eyes  We learnt a lot about the new suspension and now will make some changes as it has to much body roll if car gets out of shape at all, one pass was particularly wild and I had a good look at both walls before I got the chute out Shocked Video to come later Grin

cheers Richie

HI Richie
It was a nasty one
What was it that leaked from the car after the last run?
My friend (Michael Nord) said there was so much grip so they had problems with the chassis

Shake, rattle and roll! Looks rather dramatic in the slo-mo.

It is amazing that you found the chute button while correcting like that.

Also amazing that you never push it by accident  Smiley

Ho Lee Fuck that looked amazing in the slow Mo and super scary!!

How are you shifting Richie?
Air or someuch or is the ECU popping it in??

Weirdly at the speeds you seem to be running the run itself looks 'slow' by that I mean there is so much prelim going on that the run is a 'burp' in the middle  Grin
