It certainly is on, I'll hopefully have the first part of the regional large feature ready to test :thumbsup: Make sure it's not too hard for certain people.

Well I have to say it ! I know a lot of effort went into the quad jumps and the effort is appriated. But perhaps there can be some compromise for the regional ? For me and some others last night it was not an enjoyable experience. There was lots for broken cars and fustrated drivers. I broke my pred after 3mins practice as myself and preds struggle to do big jumps. I just cannot afford to pay for all the broken bits and don't have the time at home to fix my car. The jump maybe ok for some of the more skilled drivers but what about the rest ? Even the top drivers were breaking there cars. I could not keep up with pete as I could not get the jump right. I know these are off road cars but it was to much. Perhaps if the jumps were split into two seperate jumps down the straight ? I just could not land right one the first so had no chance at the second.
Last night was more like Bashing that racing !

Pete I hope these comments don't p*ss you off it's not ment to just constructive comments. I can see you put the most effort in to the club and it's appriated.

For the regional I'm having nothing to do with it, as no matter what you do or say it's always wrong. If you don't want the jumps that's up to the people building the track or make sure your there to build the track:D.

Personally I like jumps that take skill and judgement not something you can just hit if you don't land the downramp it's not a problem, wether other people agree with that I don't know. As for breaking cars I think there was only yourself and Chris Green who broke something.

I hope I did not upset you. I don't want to upset anyone especially the person who makes the most effort.

Thats What racing off road is all about. Big features and even bigger jumps... Any touring car driver can fly round a flat track.....

Hopefully when jeff has a bit spare time there will be a video of the jump, then you can make your own decisions,

I think the problems people were having with the jump is due to where it was, not how it was, people were coming off that sweeping corner carrying too much speed or not straight resulting in cars going everywhere.

We've actually had a bigger version of the same jump in front of the rostrum. The one where you went up the scooped jump across 2 stage units, long down ramp and steep up ramp onto the final stage unit, same transition between the jumps etc, just on a bigger scale.

As for upseting me I'm not bothered, I'd prefer people to comment on the jumps, but rather face to face than on an internet forum.

What difference does it make were I say it ? On here is sometimes better as you can pick your words not to offend. Someone voiced his opinion on the night and that didnt go well. So I did it on here instead so I could make sure I did not offend you

My pred broke when it slapped on the deck moving the motor and stripping the spur gear ! (could do with that spur now as I only have one left on the one way shaft)

The comment that was made on the night could have been phrased better, that's why the reply was made.

As for the jump I'm sure jeff won't mind me putting this here so a quick video of it,

Your right it wasnt phrase's well or suttle !

WoW you managed to catch the one time I landed it although the landing was on the wrong side of the track into on coming cars LOL That really was the one time I got it ! I admit I always bottle it but even everyone was getting it wrong in the final it was manic but funny to watch

OK, I wasn't there, so really I have no right to comment, ......................... but I will anyway ;).

I think that jump looks mint, really flowing and a hell of a buzz if/when you nail it and hit the down ramps of the second and fourth sections. MINT :thumbsup:

It does look mint when its done right but it was to hard ! myself and a few others just got frustrated with it

More Bashing than racing

If the two were separated and a straight run up

Anyway it was what it was !

i thought the jump was ok the only problem was that there was another straight running the opposite way alongside it so if people jumped off the side the hit on comming cars flat out my car got smacked full chatt

Tim if there seperated it loses the whole essence of being a rythym section, it then becomes 2 double jumps, as for the runup I accept it should of had a shorter run up, out of a hairpin or something then you wouldn't be carrying as much speed and may of had a chance at getting the car straight before the jump, most of the problems I saw were from people carrying too much speed or hitting it at an angle.

Peter

I also think that it was hard to see because of the angle and distance maybe if it was in front of the you were the jump usually is then it would also be a little easier. I could get the speed up to the first jump but not the angle

I understand some people might get frustrated when they cant get it right but you can only learn how to get it right by pracise and in My eyes a club night is the ideal time to do it. Otherwise when you go to "Big Meetings" and cant do certain sections of the track it becomes much more frustrating.
If the lead up to the start of the jump had been tighter it would've been much easier. We know that now so It'll be better next time.. :thumbsup:

Just watched the jump and it looks fine to me. Peter is right in saying if the run up had been from a hair pin so you could get the car lined up straight it would make the jump a whole lot easier. After that its all about throttle controll.:thumbsup:Full the only way i know.

He's the one that keeps jollying off on holiday and says he's working,:D

Neil are you running 2wd on tuesday coming?

If you get there early enough we can try a few things for the regional track.

Yeh I was going to race 2wd again as i will have the weighting right in the x6 this time. Am going to run the BJ4 for a race just to test it out for the weekend.

I can be there for quarter to 6. Think chrissy P will come early as well. Long as his swine flu has cleared up...

He'll still be in quarantine :lol: The earlier we can get there the better as we also need to sort the trailer out and get it filled up ready for the weekend.

Last plan was to load up on thursday night....

Everything needs to be out of the school as no access during thursday night I believe, also would make it easier on alfie instead of having to drive round to open the school for people to get stuff out all you have to do is drive next to the trailer and swap it across.

I think I know what I'm talking about:D wether you do I don't know.

I think Ill be running 2WD this Tuesday Peter.

Rythmn section looked great on the video, and it'd be even better outdoor aslong as its wide enough.

I can get there from 5:30. the only thing is, I used to get there that time to build the track, but then Alfie stopped me going into the school til 5:50 when the cleaners have finished.
