Yeah the timing counted me as a 4s and a 19s lap.
Unknown why - I didn't have any traffic around for those last few laps.

Well done to matt though.

Re: 2011 NZRCA On-Road Electric Nationals

handout motors eliminates the rumours of tweeked motors, stock/minis that seem to be somehow much faster than all the other cars down the back straight ( in the B's & C's ) $20 for a new motor is a good deal anyway. Cheers Totally agree - and stops people buying 5 motors and picking a good one.

Re: Starting in Mini

Step 15 (page 9 in the pdf) is the one that threw me, and it mucks up the wheel base.

Re: Hi, I'm Topes

There isn't a TT01 class anymore.
It's been replaced by Mini M03/M05
But you can race what ever you bring in an 'Allcomers' class
