Rnd 4 - The Taffcropolis Rally

Recommended Posts

OK, try this for size!!!!!!! Heat 4 being run tonight, so wrong scoresheet should be posted in about 15 hours time. Correct one the next morning after you lot have pointed out the errors of my ways.

 

If you want a good laugh in the meantime, go on SF, Clubs>Wye Valley and catch up with the "handbags at dawn" thread started by the JuniorDulledge. the kid has written a bit of sense, fair play, watch the 50+ year old sharks circle to try and bite him!

I'll happily flush the brushes with contact cleaner if you want me too, Mel.

If you have time Martyn. That would be great ;)

Wow, the ups and downs of proxy rallying continue in Wales.... :lol:

 

Back from Cyprus (31C-35C and wall to wall sunshine every day) to rain and 14C - summer in the Isle of Man - as the plane touched down a welcoming shower greeted us.

 

Glad to see Pete's car (Bigmanrallies) has started performing much better....thanks for the fix Martyn. :)

 

Some clown must have been too heavy-handed with the superglue when finishing the set-up work.... :wacko:

 

I think I owe Pete a big apology. We knew it was handling well enough....before I got the glue out.... <_<

 

Well done to all the podiumites in Wales so far and thanks to Martyn for keeping the show going so well. :P

 

IoM rounds - I'm ready to rock and roll whenever you've finished Martyn, up to you.

 

Alexis - when do you need the box of cars to reach you?

 

Cheers

Dave

Hi Martyn

 

Got your e-mail today - many thanks - but for some mysterious reason, not last night's....weird!

 

Have e-mailed you with my address and mobile number.

 

All systems go here for next week, then.... :)

 

Cheers

Dave

Sorry, just feeling like I've missed something somewhere. When do we get the final results from Wales?

Hi Embs, when I get a chance today I'll post the R4 final heat and overall results. Then I'll have R5's results up on Wednesday or more likely Thursday morning. Still struggling to post attachments when I get home from work - the editor is a pita when trying to run any scripts. Works ok up until about mid-afternoon.

Phew. That's ok then. Was just in a bit of a panic because you were talking about handing cars over and I hadn't posted the round results. I hadn't seen the results. Just making sure that it wasn't because I hadn't been paying attention.

Here are the scores on the doors - don't ask me what happened to Leo's car -it just ran so beautifully in Heat 4.

Branco's car again took two laps to get the handbrake released, then it ran very sweetly. I'll try cleaning the brushes with some contact cleaner, as it was a bit whiffy when it warmed up. Again, some cars started off running very sweetly, then within 3 to 5 laps just started to be unpredictable. You can see the cars that were coming off the track too often, their times are very high.

So tonight and tomorrow sees me run Round 5 - The Welsh Combo. Alternating heats on both tracks - four heats in total. Lots of pics and a video of Deadman's will be shot during the proceedings. Hwyl fawr!

I think my Subaru suffers from SCX syndrome (sometimes the motor needs a lot of warming up to perform properly!!!)
