Hopefully the TLR 22 will arrive today.

What wind motor would you recommend.... Something like a 7.5T?

Also what tyres and inserts are people finding successful?

Good choice. Other TLR drivers down at the club are The Hatton twins and Simon Fearn. There was another but forgotten who drove it, was white I think

They can help you with shocks and positions etc but the tyres are simple, Schumacher Yellow Mini Spikes on the rear and Yellow Staggered or Cut Ribs on the front.

Good luck on the build!. Might see you Sunday also?

I've also got a TLR 22 and was looking at coming down to race soon (as soon as my Lipo turns up!!). The cut/staggered ribs are a slim tyre, but the 22 uses wide front wheels like a 4wd, do you just stretch the tyres across or should I get some slim wheels?

You have three options.

1: Buy a Slim Wheel (if they make them)
2: Stretch fit (not hard to do)
3: Dremel the wheel fin down

I use option 2. Seems to work fine on my B4.1. This is for the old style staggered rib and the new style. People say they handle differently but I cant tell. Note this could be down to my driving skills rather than anything technical!!!!!

If the whether stays onside it could be a great turnout. If we have more than 30 drivers (which might be possible ) we might only get two heats in and one final. If this is the case the race fees will be lowered to suit. I would prefer to drop the cost than not allow people to race.

Neil,
Do we need to prebook in anywhere to make things a bit quicker and easier for you to get the names in? Also payment, paypal again? - Let me know either here, pm, or email.

Mark

Once people are in the programme it's pretty straight forward. We'll cross the pre book thing if we need to, I'm sure we'll be fine

Hey it's a nice issue to have to think about!

A couple of Tuesdays and a fabulous Sunday day event. Lots of people finding the groove on the ever changing grip surface of the natural grass track, not as predictable as manmade surfaces.

Look forward to it, lets pray for sunshine.
