There are some real potential movers, ember, Gazza, quantum and ben-m are out of position based on their outright pace.

Interesting.... This year's car is new, but it is running last year's motor.
Computers. They'll never catch on.

Stage 2 complete, run in reverse order

Car no., stage time, best lap, offs
10, 151.86, 14.59, 1
52, 160.28, 15.05, 4
36, 168.82, 15.63, 5
82, 157.73, 14.58, 4
100, 155.59, 14.87, 2
15, 155.91, 14.87, 0
22, 152.21, 14.45, 2
58, 154.22, 14.62, 1
17, 148.27, 14.23, 1
20, 143.81, 13.89, 0

Next 10 in a bit. I have not added the two stages together yet, but there are some movers and droppers. Cars with 3 or more offs had hairpin trouble, and running at 12v really hampered those motors whom needed the oomph. I reinvigorated Miveson's motor with lots of electrical contact cleaner.

Wow; ten offs in the favored direction, nine in the last. I wonder if my guide has broken again? Have the tops been off the cars? (I noticed a comment about a lot of blue tack on one.) If so could you check that the body screws are snug please, else the chassis does not line up, and the front diff mesh is crook. Thx.

Much better Stage 2 from my car. Looks likely I will gain a few places overall. Suspense for the top 30 must be immense! Exciting times!

Haystack, will check your car, all cars were opened and cleaned. Yours was fast and the guide seemed fine, my forensic analysis, ie quick glance, concluded that your guide seemed thicker than others and as it was getting caught on a joint in the hairpin which required it to be extracted and reslotted each time, which not an issue for any other car, led metro conclude that your guide girth was the issue.

Whether that is a fact or not I am not sure, but women say girth is the important bit of our protrusions! However my track suits slimness.

Next lot, up to the top 10.
75, 144.90, 14.00, 2 - a good time, while move up a few places and gain some valuable points

98, 154.19, 14.65, 2, - slippery pole time no ladder climbing

79, 156.15, 14.86, 1 - another on the slide

42, 148.72, 13.87, 3, - potential, just needed to be driven real hard to produce the time and front end wiped out a couple of times as a result

25, 158.15, 14.21, 5 - did not like the hairpin

77, 155.60, 14.03, 4, - another hairpin issue

Top 10 next

Good time, will it enable a scramble up the ladder and some good points?

Slow and steady, did not suit the lower volts. Might have lost a good points tally with that time!
