The car looks sweet. How did it handle? Did you customize the chassis to fit the RPM front bulkhead? I would also like to know what shock tower was used on the rear?....I need something like that.

It sounds like fun was had by all at the event. Thanks for the pics.

Aconsola's car was :shock: scary fast coming down the straight away, I must admit I was a little afraid when he came down the track and I was marshalling at the end of the straight, but he kept that beast under control, at the last moment he would slam on the brakes and make the turn :D

Good times, ohhh good times :wink:

Another good idea that I would like to use for the next event (assuming I have time). Maybe we can get another member to step up to be a pit reporter and help a mod out next time! :D I might be able to convince my wife to do it......... might take some convincing though.
I am not here cause I am playing photographer and on my mountain bike.
