Well it's been a long time but the dust is finally settling. I thought I'd start this thread to share my thoughts on the whole experience, and I'd like to hear from all of those who participated. I'd like to acknowledge the following people: First of all, thanks to Steve Littlehales for kicking this off. I'm sorry you could not take a more active role in the series you helped create. Thanks Maurizio Ferrari for your endorsement! Thanks to the following people for running rounds and generally doing the needful: Round 1 & 2: Chris for running and Ged for hosting. Tobais & other drivers Round 3: Brett & drivers Chris,Tobias and Joe Round 4 & 5: Tony & Ian Round 6 & 7: Terry & Ian Round 8: Tazracer Round 9: Chris Cheers to everyone who entered a car. Finally, congratulations to Tobias for the Series win, well done mate! Thoughts on the car. I'm delighted the paint job was well recieved, but disappointed in the performance. Here's my part list: SICA06Z - Mercedes Sauber - White kit SICH07 - Wood track guide SICH47 - Spring suspension, medium springs SICH60 - EVO6 motor mount SIGA30 - 30t AW crown SIPS10 - 10t 6.5mm pinion SIMN09H - Flat6 20k open vent motor SIPA25 - Axle stopper SIPA39 - Independent front axle SIPA47 - Axle spacers SIPT27 - F22 Raptor tyres I'm new to proxy racing, and didn't really understand the nature of it. I had no idea that the cars would be tuned along the way- I thought they would be run as is aside from anything major like wheels falling off. In summary- I don't think I put enough time into tuning it, and I think I made it too complex. I also let it go despite not being happy with the gear ratio. Thanks to everyone who fixed, fettled or poked at my car. I've learned some valuable lessons and will be contesting some more proxy races. Regards Bry
A group of us travelled up to Coffs Harbour over the weekend to watch the WRC cars in action and enjoy the sunshine on the NSW north coast at Coffs Harbour Friday was less than perfect to say the least Some of the action over the next two days and nights http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLloSg78R28 The Citroen's were doing total rebuilds While the Ford's were just taking it easy Plenty of opportunity to meet the drivers and get things signed .... for most of us anyway Craigs new best friend Ogier was just happy to get all his fingers back Henning Solberg back on the track after a roll over Back to service
