Simon Overall who won 2wd rolled over them in his last qualifier and got his best time and round score by a long way as well. Not sure what he was doing in the final.

In the final i jumped the double every time until the last lap when it made sense to roll over them. I think it's 0.5 to 0.75 seconds a lap quicker to jump which is going to save 6 to 9 seconds a race, its a lot of time to save but did anyone manage to jump them every time?

Nope, not me. typically I needed marshaling twice a race on the double, 4 seconds each so still 1 second quicker than rolling them. Still high risk though, given the amount of breakages on that one section alone.

It would have only been three seconds if mr Dyke was more energetic. Only joking Chris

bit of a mad one for me, never snapped anything on my d4 before or crashed a real full sized car before. Managed both that day

never drove a track quite like that before but thought it was ace, just need more practise. Also learnt what setups dont work, which is valuable experience too.

and the limitations of a suzuki jimny when cornering. hmmmmmm

cheers for a good event though

twice a race plus the 2 seconds per lap you lost with the BIG AIR time you animal.....

griff, i was hoping as i was marshalling the top 4wd heat i wouldnt have many to put back on there wheel's...how wrong i was the first 3 times per round were marshalled within 3 seconds m8, after that i lost interest :-)

I swear I was doing the same thing everytime it was just so random, and I liked seeing your face everytime I rolled it, haha

I ran a Kyosho lazer RTR bog standard car (with a bullet shell) and loved it.
Didnt break a thing all day and was impressed with the way it handled...

Still got a lot to learn in the driving dept... but will up my top end speed for the next meet.

A great day out
