Not a lot of grip going up the hill then a rear wheel came loose towards the end of stage 1 - a quick super glue then made it to the end.

Then the other side during stage two, although no noticeable loss of grip just came off during one corner. But just pushed back on to get you home with two laps to go.

My son drove stage 1 and he liked your car so much he wanted to know if you would notice it go missing :P :lol: :lol: :lol:

No need to fear or worry, because it is a fact that it will launch off of there and worrying about it wont slow it down :)

Hope Mel has got some pillows on the ground behind there!

A couple of Rotties asleep on the floor there and under the air conditioner so it will land OK but they might think it's a bird. Then it will be gone in 1/2 a second :lol: :lol: :lol: Possibly spit the motor out.

No time yesterday to put comments and pics up of the Raid cars but I will get there.

First stages of the WRC and Classic cars have been run but as I need to head off to work right now :angry: I'll put the results up tonight or early tomorrow (won't be home 'till late) :unsure:

retirement... what is that? by the time I reach 50 the retirement age will be 70, so i stop dreaming about doing slot car all day long!
By the way, i would prefer the pillows to the rotties if i can choose! i know that my car will have the grip and speed to go up... i only worry about which way they will go down. But as it was said, no point to worry, i just have to let it go.

Thought I would have to run the WRC and Classic cars again after the PC froze up after a Windows update. Was worried I had lost all data and pics but seems OK :unsure:

Congrats Chas, the Grandkids and Stu for the overall podium, and to the others on the stage steps.

I'll just be happy to see the Celica survive without crumbling.

Thanks for the run Mel. Looking forward to seeing the images when you get time.
