I might be making my first appearance if I can get my b4 wired up tonight. Need to glue the tyres solder new wires into the gtb. Paint the shell but that's not a must ! Even if it's not race ready I was hoping to get it on the track just to try it out. Not sure if this will be ok ?

Also I do not have the correct connectors on my charger ! And the lipo only has the charge that it had when I got it (second hand ) so maybe someone can top it up ? I am hoping to get it all sorted at the weekend. I am also going to get a 2.4ghz pistol soon as I don't fancy getting another 27mhz. I have got some yellow mini spikes with inserts but I have not glued them as I am not sure if I need to drill any hopes in the rims for indoors ? I have also messed up with buying b4 wide front rims and slim tyres. Opps they still fit but not perfect. I have no idea how to set the car up either.

I've got the bairns 27mhz tranny if you need it and I'm sure someone can sort a charger out for you to use.

If you fetch your charger we'll have a look and no doubt be able to sort some connectors out.

That jump last night surely must have been the biggest height jump? In the final (that i won LOL!) i was fearing for my life when the mad dogs were coming through. I was trying to watch them aswell as race.
Neil. I know what you mean re marshaling and maybe i was guilty at some point in the night. We should know better. The thing is, is that there are no ground rules and people just seem to do what they want. We need to tighten it up a bit i think. I wouldnt want to put people off coming due to crap marshalls!
The Unpainted B4 looked to be going really well. Beginner my arse! We will be watching him!

Last nights track was a rough layout of the proposed regioanl track, any comments?

Re: marshalling, Im guilty of not getting out to marshall on time, but thats due to lack of time, I need time to change batteries in my car. I was so pushed for time last night I ran the whole meeting with a broken wishbone that I broke in practice.

6 min heats were good!

Time taken to build the track was too long. More help required. Good nights racing, even though I wasn't happy with my final performance.

That unpainted B4 did look to be going well.

Hi my names Tim by the way ! I was the one with the B4. Just to clear things up I am not a beginner as such. I raced when I was a teen but stopped when I was getting close to 17. I sold up to get a real car LOL. That was 14 years ago so that's a long time so I was not sure how well I would be driving now. But I really enjoyed it and was not as rusty as I thought I would be. I used to race at teeside buggy club back when they had an outdoor track and also raced indoor at the mc millan sports center. I admit I was quite good back then but I just want t have some fun with the 2wd to get my driving skills back as they are more fun.
Anyway thanks to all those who helped my with my car as it was not quite ready to race properly and I am deffinately hooked on it ! And will be back when it's on next for sure.

Well get yourself into a few Indoor meets.

Teesside have a Regional at Billingham on Sunday. Get yourself there.

The more Track time the better

We all have a go at eachother in the top heat and are the first ones to complain if anything goes wrong with marshalling etc, yet we are far from perfect. Think we'll have to start numbering marshall points or something.... Was still a mint track though. And am amazed the car held up however it looks a right mess now...

Chris S AKA the king of the back flips...

And who was it that nearly wiped us all out on the rostrum...??? It looked like a blurey Pred as it glanced past my head....
