Default Kidderminster National - May 12th + 13th 2007.

There's one week to go before round 2 of the national championship series, at Kidderminster Model Car Club, May 12th and 13th 2007.
Is everyone prepared? I think the tyre debate has calmed down now, so what else to discuss? Who's looking hot on the track (I'm thinking Yardy is heading for a good result, among other top competitors of course)?
Once again lets hope the weather is kind to us like it was at Tivvy, made a nice change not to be freezing our socks off.
Is everyone sorted out for travel plans? And are many people still awaiting confirmation of race entry?

yeah, i heard that it's going to rain as well, although it is still a week away. Suppose we've had a lot of good weather recently, we are due a rainy one!!

rain + kiddy =

I bet i will get the marshall point at the top of a hill so i can slide down and break my back...

That field is also very small.. took me 3 hours to get out last year because i was not racing sunday and wanted to go home...

Still a great track though, cant wait. Always love kiddy

I like kiddy in the rain, its easyer i find, to much sun and all that rubber = megga traction on the bottom right sections and grip roll and rolls.

the x5 is ready, did that the monday after the marsdon mid west regional as i knew i couldnt make the next 4wd regional

2wd ive got the new top shaft sorter ackerman ball stud and ally shock bushings to fit ,and then shes done

Can anyone help me with a set-up for Kiddy? I said I like it there but that is more to do with the organisation and the venue.. i always have problems setting the car up, especially getting it into a straight line as you come onto the straight, whatever the weather i end up fish tailing it down the main straight, it cant just be my application of power...

Help !? Stan?
