As there is some kind of game going on at Eden Park involving an oblong ball and our mates from across the ditch it will pay to get there early to avoid a long walk!

F1 was certainly drama filled, my nats motor finally threw a leg out of bed in race 1, cue frantic water dipping and soldering a replacement which of course didn't have the pace of it's predecessor... Fortunately my arch rival only got 1 race from me, after his hopes were crushed (literally!) in race 3 by a friendly Marshall :roll:
Tom and Martin were driving out of their skins, great battles everywhere.
My Pro12 was hooked up, managed to knock out some wicked fast laps but it wasn't enough to beat Matt VDH's consistency. Mike may be looking for some Lipos for his too after being robbed late in two races by the MaH fairy :lol:
Great night and my mechanic seems no worse for wear this morning.

I also had a great night, my pro10 felt really good, and had some great battles with luey. You were missed in pro10 Bishy, I think the races would have been epic with you there. I feel like I'm really starting to get the hang of the pro10 now, no more excuses :P
My pro12 on the other hand still needs some serious work, but I'll get there eventually.

Hang in there with pro10 crabby, it takes a bit get used to the rear wheel drive. You'll get there! Once it starts to become second nature, they're awesome fun to drive!

I had a pretty frantic day yesterday. Opting to go back to the normal 12r5.1 chassis (so I can be competitive outdoors aswell), I rushed my wiring job to get it done on time, which had my 12th tweaked all night :(

I also went from a 4.5 turn last indoors to a 7.5 this time. After running no timing advance in the first round, to setting it to 7 in the third race it completely changed the characteristics of the motor. So I'm hoping I can get a smoother motor in the end with the same amount of rpm / torque as my 4.5t (with no timing advance).

Bishy you were putting in some great lap times 8)

The Pro10s looked so fun to drive! Might have to race pro12 / pro10 indoors in the future :D

Mikes 12th looked hooked up, and i'm not surprised, the 12X is still a very competitive car. (y)

Wicked night, track had heaps of flow and real fun to drive. Great to see Bishy had pit crew too, a little apprentice learning the ropes. I think 1 year with Bishy as a pit boss and we gona have to watch that little bugger closely. (please not mini, Im just gettin used to it). I think that last night in mini was the most fun Ive had, racing was so close at the front without Stu n Chris in my heats. Bring on the next one asap. (y) (y) (y)

12th was heaps of fun,
Your car was pretty quick Bishy. And fun to race against you and Matt as always.
I swapped out the sport tuned 27turn motor for a brushless 3.0 Team Orion.
Don't worry the throttle was turned down to make run time (sort of almost).
Thanks to the guy that marshalled my car from being quantum entangled with the drivers stand. It looked like it went a far distance in there, not sure how.

Will do! :mrgreen: definitely is a lot of fun to drive, specially once its at full song. It did feel a lot more planted than last time,possibly because I was going a bit faster and getting some downforce!

Was the points added for the glitchy AMB dodgy lap counting ?? A few people got dodgy lap times and lap counts might want to check it again :? Hopefully someone could second me on this one (y)
