Stage 1 was run this afternoon and tonight with the help of Craig (TeamRedRacing)
Late finish after loosing, finding and fixing power to one section of the track :angry:
Hopefully I will be able to extract the scores and post in the morning before I head off to hospital for a hernia op. :huh:. Stage 2, if and when they let me out of hospital.

Apologies for raw results as I'm off to visit the butcher, so no time time to jazz up the sheet.

Never experienced this before. Thought about gluing with some UV glue but unlikely to true/balance the wheel.

Had that happen on my car same as Rossko,s when i was first testing it last year and i am sure when they force the wheel onto those splined axles some get cracked and it doesn't break straight away but just gadually breaks, definitly a weak point and being on a rally car gets more banging on the wheels when driving on a rally track with scenery, all i could do with mine was order a complete new rear axle set , that's why i have differant coloured wheels front to back., and wish you well Mel take care.

Cheers Mel and Craig.
Commiserations to Gas41t. Worth trying to glue the wheel back together surely? Or borrow an axle from a spare car.

Take care Mel, I had a hernia repair a few years ago. Doc said two weeks off work and after the first week I was raring to go but behaved like a good patient and stayed off. When I went back in it wasn't long before I started to feel uncomfortable when walking... take it easy for a while - no clubbing for a couple of months !!

Thanks Leo.Mine was part of the Naval which later caused some complications. Don't think I will be entering any sexy belly button competitions. I'm 80% back to normal :rolleyes: . Except when the wife drives over those sharp plastic speed humps :angry:

Plan is to run a stage later this afternoon.

Thanks Matey. Getting there (not sure where there is :unsure:)

BTW
Did a special super stage today. Faster but not as long as the main stages.
Also finished stage 3 (& final)
Too tired now to extract results. I'll be out most of tomorrow but plan to post results tomorrow night if my pain killers (Endone) don't shut me down too early

Results of the The "Special Super Stage"

The stage was run on the lower part of the track, away from the twisty mountain section
By adjusting the lane change flippers about 30% of the rally track is used and 20% of the open road section is used.
I thought running this stage would throw the cats amognst the pigeons a bit more but in hindsight the stage should have been run longer.
Hence the results were close.
Stage 3 has been run and won. So I will add the score sheets later today

AquaKiwi's car took a short cut through the sand trap and actually ended up in the slot the other end. Not an unusual occurrence to be honest :P

Stage 3 and final @ Mount Saltpanorama
Posted Image

Stage - 1 and 2 both run over the same distance
Different drivers for both stage 1 and 2
Stage 1 - was run in cool conditions but it did warm up heaps 3/4 of the way through
Stage 2 - temperature varied sufficiently (10deg) to have an impact on results.

Series points sheet will be posted in the morning (Thursday 15th Nov) and to announce the 2018 WRP Series Winners

Wow, thanks guys, I'll take that! Like a Stradavarius and a good fart, my car is getting better as time passes!

Bit of a bugger with Rossko's car, all that good work scuppered by a cracked hub :(

Keep on the mend Mel, and next time you are in Blighty doing your Boaty McBoatface thing, make sure us Poms have enough notice so we can meet up and look at Little Ern's scar. Heed Leo's advice, do bugger all like the Doc told you.
