Congrats to the winners!

The Raids with a good balance of grip and drift were found easier to drive and faster on the bends Phils and Gazza's had lots of grip and were very smooth but would tip easily.

Will compile the results for the Historics after some grub

it looks like i need to buy a rally raid car for next year. too bad avant does not have a french car, i am not a fan of ninco or schlesser. Hopefully next year someone will launch the new peugeot buggy proto.

Whoo hoo...

The truck clawed it's way into 3rd after the slow start...
2 Thirds and a Second, I'm very happy with that...


Thanks for running the round, and congrats to the top 2...

Again well done to the guys up front!
Fabian, your car is mongrel fast at Mopke. I think a combination of over motor and bulk grip made the Alpine a handfull to drive, even with its road hugging performance, though its a fun car to drive.

Posted Image

The motor in Charles car broke free from its glue during stage 3, tried to contact the boss to ok fixing it but t boss was busy, so I took the initative,hot glued it in place tried again but failed again, pulled apart again this time 5minute araldite it and put it to the back o the field, then ran it.
On Sunday Alan and I looked more closely at Embers car, after it proved to be a bit of a handful, contacted the powers and got the ok to remove the guide spring to make it a bit more driveable. This is a beautifully set up car and stages 3 and 4 reflect more how well set up it is, on Mopoke anyway.
OTFS car were the tyres glued on theis car? It bumps all over the place

The only other issue for stages 3 and 4 was with the Ben M Schlesser (Raid) guide wires fowling the the hinged guide tongue, took the liberty to fix this too, before running it.

Will run the WRC stages tomorrow

Cheers for that, imagine how slow it would have been otherwise :) Thanks for running the round, looks like my Porsche was reasonably consistent, just not there. Hope your having fun with it. Well done to those up the top.

Stu Should have run the house phone! Bloody insulation in the shed and foil board ceiling is a great insulator for radio waves! :D
Thanks for getting these stages completed.

Your Schlesser's rear axle appears to, also, have a wandering rear axle. Itwonders out to the right. The crown seems firm to realign but it still moves, something that may need re addressing. The Porsche seems a bit taily, loose a bit of ground waiting for it to come in line to gun it for the next bit.

Nice car to drive, bit harder to find the limit with this one, still hung in there when pushed when it was loose. Not as smooth as some I driven but you could really push at this track, well done.

second race in the top 4... 2s to 3rd, and 4s to 2nd, not bad for a first entry.
But this little peter RS200 is a devil!!!! congrat to the winner and thanks to the driver.

The car is very fun to drive, may be big and it has the odd hard plastic noise when you push. Thanks a lot for the comment. The car did not have huge mods, only the in line kit, some glue and weight here and there. On our road track it has punch and the french sexy look :D .

Wow. Nicely done. Great to see that Keith's car came out on top at Mopoke. I gave it a couple of laps around here before I sent it to Tassie and there was just no way I could shake it loose. The guide seemed to suck into the slot and not let go. :D

Congrats to the rest of the guys on the podium too. Nice work lads.

Thanks for removing the spring on my guide. Certainly seems to be doing better that way.
Computers. They'll never catch on.

Thanks for looking after my car. Sorry to hear motor came loose but sounds like second repair worked.

Congrats to other podiumites/competiors and organisers/drivers/marshals for a job well done.

Bloody RS200! Same as last year, MG great on my very tight track, but on the faster open tracks the RS has an advantage with the longer wheelbase.
Might have to look at an Alpine for next year! Fabians is good with limited development time.
Raids might have to be Ninco only after this year! That Lancer seems to be in another class.
Good to see Miveson is consistent!
I thought the Porsches would have gone better on this track.
Will be interesting to see how they go on the Southern Loop.
