thanks for running the round, at least I'm in front of a couple of cars.
I think mine would be one with out of round fronts as it had a badly bent front axle when I took it out of the box, did the best I could to straighten it

The concluding Stage 3 of Round 1 coming up....

A 3 second overall lead for Gas over Stubbo, with Alexis breathing down their necks....

But can Gas hang on...?

Stage 3 was a repeat of Stage 2, the TT Grandstand....but in reverse direction, which is not our "normal" direction.

Over to Mike Buss as the driver on that stage.

Cheers
Dave

Thanks Dave and crew , comgrats Rossko on your overall win in part 1 but them Lancias are still up there , is it possible for a bit of feed back as i,m not at all sure what to do with that car, in 3 stages it's placed 15 th then 1st and now 15 th again was the 1st a sheer fluke as it looks like to me, and is the car inherintly bad and needs to be binned. :angry:

Hi Peter and all.

Know how you feel Peter. After winning first Wales round I am just about out the back.

Well done to Gas41T, Alan, Stu and Phil and the organisers/drivers etc. Also Ben for top Metro and top 10 placing.

Regards Chas Le Breton

Hi guys

Congratulations to all the guys at the sharp end...!

Things were pretty damned close in the end.... :o When we ran the final Stage in this Round, Mike Buss, who was driving, had no idea who was leading.

I'm sorry there weren't photos or videos in Round 5, as we had to rush it a bit to get it done before summer holidays interfered with things.

However, we will be making amends for the remaining Manx rounds, and we hope to have at least another 3 Rounds (9 stages) for you. Or maybe 4 Rounds.... :lol:. I will have the results of Round 6, Stage 1 on Monday.

I understand the queries about the performance of the various cars and variations from stage to stage. It often surprises me too. :wacko:

But, don't forget the following which need to be factored in, although our voltage is consistent across tracks at 13.8v -

1. Some tracks favour speed;
2. Some tracks are very twisty;
3. We run some tracks in the "normal" direction, but also afterwards "the wrong way" for a second run, by using a reversing switch - this makes the reverse stages more difficult;
4. We vary the drivers;
5. Each driver has his preferred controller;
6. Each driver has his own particular driving style;
7. Weather conditions and temperature can affect grip;
8. The surface grip varies from track to track, although all are wooden this year.
9. Some cars can deteriorate over time - most typically gear meshes, guides/braids etc.; and
10. Alcohol is not a factor....although coffee might be...! :D

I'll do an in-depth service check on all cars at this point and as part of that will produce a table of results and comments.

There are a couple of cars which might benefit from being opened up and gear meshes checked. Am I OK to do this...? TeamRed, for example?

Cheers
Dave

Just a quick word about the Peter Gunn car....Mike had a problem with it on one tight corner on Stage 3....I think he was off 4 times in 20 laps. Also same applies to Leo's car and John's - 6 times on 1 corner in 20 laps.
