It was a good day. Qualified 8th in the B and came 6th. Was in fourth for most of the race but Mike and Martin had other ideas. Shame about the rain, but my positions in the round were better when it was wet!

Highlight of day was Phil Channon throwing a TRF501 ten feet into the air whilst marshalling...

Was a good day. Spent most of it making changes to the BJ4WE to try and get somewhere close to a drivable car. Hampered by only having Schummy Greens but worked hard on the car and it was getting there by the end of the day. Borrowed some blick pink spikes for the final and it proved that it was the rubber holding me back all day, much improved the car ..... thanks to Ian for the help.

The cells I got from Neil seem top notch .... thanks for all your help too mate ... will try to get more of a chance to chat to you at the next one!

Good days racing, really enjoyed it!!!

A guy with a Tamiya 4wd was comin down the straight and his car stopped. Channon was marshalling the straight so he ran to go get the car out the way fast as it was in the main straight. Even though people shouted "car in the straight!!!" they kept goin flat chat... So Phil bombs over to it, reaches down and tries to wrist whip it out the way, he grabs the back shock tower, goes to lift the car up as fast as he could and, as the track and car wer soakin wet... it slipped out the back of his hand, flew about 8ft, did a 1080 in the air and crashed back to the ground poppin a turnbuckle off i believe... I was in fits, I saw it all unfold as I was marshalling at the back of the track opposite... still lauhghing at it now!

haha yer it was jeff comin down the stright at full pelt. he wanted a good run. it was all over when i got there after him all i saw was phil collectin the car from the other side of the track and shouting its broken. and tbh i only heard one shout and that was just before i heard the car crash to the floor and i was next to jeff.

brilliant day though. shame about the wet conditions but it did give me some valuable testing for different conditions

LOL ..... I tried but there where no blick spikes to be had, pink or otherwise! Didn't want to go to pins as it would be no use as a reference for the future.

To be fair I think it was best to do it the way I did as at least the Schumy greens where consistent(ly poor) through all runs which meant I learnt a lot more about the BJ4WE than I would have done if I had shifted tires too much.

Anyway the most important thing was it turned out to be a very enjoyable school day....

Your a spanner

There is nothing wrong with this car, infact at the moment it is as quick as my Losi XXXcr and that was straight out of the box. The only thing i changed was the rear springs, and got more lock out of the car.
Time will tell how quick the car can be, but after yesterday it looks promising.
