My apologies guys, thought my car had hits it's peak and was going in to decline.

Miveson, can you check Greece round 10 points. They were amended because of a dodgy way too fast time of mine, I ended up 7th with 15 points and Ember took the podium

Congratulations all and thanks for running the round.

Looks like Tucker has it all wrapped up with 2 rounds to spare with a mighty dominant performance and a car that goes well on all tracks, much deserved and the class of 2014.

Congratulations on surviving, everyone. It seems like this year has been a very long run. Well, maybe quiet rather than long. Just one more round to go.

Good luck.

Updated with minor adjustments to Round 10 scores with mtucker dropping from 3rd to 7th and each place from 4th to 7th increasing a place.

Nothings changed for me . I think this is the last time I do a repaint . The amount of paint must have slowed it down . Thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it :P :D .

Just gave your car a few laps on my track (next round) and it's fine.

Your car (and 3 or 4 others) just didn't like the "U" turn at the top of the hill. I you back off the car rides up on the rocks on the inside, too quick and it would deslot or roll. With 60 or so laps that's a fair chance of heaps of misshapes. Had a marshal on that corner at all times (mainly me) but it still adds 1 to 2 seconds to the time, times 20 to 30 - that hurts!

Your car, Penney's and Curef99 were the main cars that suffered up the hill.

My track only has 4 corners that need respect but we do some warm up laps to see how each cars performs then drive (hopefully :) ) accordingly. We will run 19 laps for a total 8 minutes or so on my track but shorter tracks like Nuggets hill it was 60 so problem corners can add greatly to your time. Does that make sense? The hand controller used can make a difference as will and I will make a comment on that on a later post

Where your car (and a few others) struggled at the top of the hill.

In both directions the cars need to be flicked out to miss the rocks

The Mitsubishi's seemed to be the cars that struggled the most - and no idea why?? :unsure:

Just a lack of finesse upon the part of the driver, maybe? :D

Could well be :P
We used two drivers and each drove for 2 - 3 hours with the odd coffee break and stretch/massage the finger, so concentration can drop off a little at times, but that usually only happens with cars that deslot inconsistently.
All of us in Sydney usually run the car for a couple of laps before the start to see how it performs and where it may need extra care and in some cases adjust the hand controller to help the car better.
We do our best to gets the best out of each car.
