Was a cracking day And much drier than anticipated. Have to say I particularily enjoyed the track layout (although I am a bit Biased ) Flowed well but still a challenge.

Great racing throughout the day to

Very happy with my third place in the championship to. Definatly need to battle for the top spot next year

+1

Great end to the season, track was a good layout and was very close racing all day.

Thanks to all involved, roll on next year

P.S,

shame the top 3 2WD's this year had to cheat by using non commercially available cars/tyres/or having wings!

Wes and Rob get banned for running prototypes.... you get banned for having a wing yesterday... Aaron gets banned for having a cigarette sponsorship paint job...

Which means Roger is the 2012 National SCT Champion and i'm 3rd overall... so get them trophies back to their deserving owners

Naah, take the last two rounds off me and I would still be third And the chassis i'm running is commercially availiable, you just have to order one http://www.akularacing.co.uk/


I think technically the item on the back of a durangos is classed as a "spoiler" and not an actualy wing. Wing would be curved like an upside down plane wing. It's more of a gurney flap on the bodyshell that I am running and I would be breaching the rules if I cut it off as there is no cut line to remove it. Again it wouldn't be classed as a wing.

Just out of interest how much do TLR charge for providing a bodyshell with less lexan than the original?

If you were in the A final and you were car number 10 it was probably me crashing into you with the back of my car as I was on the apex and you were closing in behind me 11 of the 12 times.... the other occassion I may have returned the favour I don't mind forcful overtakes but knocking people off every time you get close is a bit much anyway moved on now and looking forward to next year !

Nope... you all get outright banned rather than rounds removed... Rog and me voted on it fair and square!

You can't order one on Akula website yet... could just ban you for not having lights/grille on the front of yours, so it's not representing a real truck according to rules!

TLR Hi-Perfomance bodyshell is a lot cheaper than Ansmann/Team C/Doris or whatever stickers are on it this week bodyshell, plus at least it's not moulded around a dented bread bin

Mine did have lexan attached... i slipped with the dremel, but TLR have made the body pre-cut to save time... plus it saves paint! Lewis has got them in stock already

that's not a wing/spoiler/gurney flap on yours... it's a tray for putting butter on

My XXX-SCT is getting converted to a SCB so will be definitely up for the class next year... would have been good in the wind yesterday!

yeah sorry chimp, such a advantage this running prototype equipment, the gains to be had squeezing development and set up of a evolving car and 3 types of tires in 2 compounds into 5 meetingsOh and got to agree with you on the wing subject, was asked at surry and hants to take it off and managed to go from half a lap up to lapping everyone.

You're all making it very gay. The winners won. It's over. If you don't like the winners, then get better at it and come back and beat them next year.
