well... what an interesting night
i tightend my rear diff 10min before race start, wasnt able to test it...
in the first heat found out it was way to tight and acting like a locked rear diff... and the track was full of tight corners and hairpins... donuts any1?
and then there wasnt many races last night so i never had to the time to losen the diff so i had to adapt quickly so the carhandeling very differently after the 2nd heat i got the way of it... but ill need to work on the rear diff before next race meeting.

Results
Qualified: 2nd in the A
1st Final: 1st
2nd Final: 1st
3rd Final: 1st

raced last night   

3x 2nd, 1x 3rd (bad drivin & marshal)

tried a tranny with steer adjustment fitted like you get on wheel types and expensive ones

worked wonders  my drivin was a lot smoother

the 3rd place was because the marshal lifted the barrier to replace it and i went under it after going wide into the main straight  lol

i did ok with my mi2, changed a few things about from last week, layed the shocks down more, thicker oil, tried the standard chassis, and did quite well.

ran stock, won all my races, bet all the other stocks, all the spec's, and all the buggys
