All the sounds are fom the original car....the fnal mini clip is my favourite. Callan spent many hours on it..

Phil - make sure you give the tyres a good clean before the next round!!!

Well done lads, great job. Congrats to the winners. I'm still yet to finish my final video, its going to be a little underwhelming compared to yours.

i think that for the 2015/2016 even we should allocate a prize to the best report and the best video because this one will stay a piece of history!

1 more round at Phil's to go.
I'm hoping the big truck will earn me another win.

Only two repairs to do.

Wheels I think

Very nice. I think i'll stick with the buggy again if I enter next time. Shadows ute was great to drive, very tempted to get one too.

Awe schucks guys...
Awesome to know that you guys have been impressed by it, and or, enjoyed driving it...

The utes are fun as they slide so well on the larger corners due to their long wheelbase.
Obviously, it's the very tight hairpins that let it down a little, but every vehicle has it's Achilles heal.


Also, depending on what rules change, will determine how well the truck fares.
My advice would be to force unlocked axles (must use shocks and minimum 5mm travel) and a 'control tyre' (hopefully the 40+ shore ones Phil is considering).
Other than that, you wouldn't want any more power than the stock motor, and lead under the chassis steps works well.

Ga41t you did have aproblem with a cracked rear wheel,I have glued it and now seems O/K. Should hold up for the two stages.

Rusty I think looking up the axles may make the Ninco more reliable, it is hard to maintain a good gear mesh with the axle floating around so much.I will look at this more after the last stage.

Thanks for another great round!

Have to say I am really pleased with how the series has gone for my car in the wrc. Learnt a lesson or two for next year regarding choice of motor amount of weight etc.

Also thanks to all the hosts for their hard work in running the rounds, the pictures, videos and comments/feedback have been second to none.

One more to go is ? Hoping to end the season on a high!

Ryan
