    Hi Alexis,


    Thanks for that - hey the #66 doesn't seem too bad amongst the field so far....


    Do you think the 'tail happy' is probably weight balance not quite right?


    Cheers, Tony.

      Hi Tony
      i think its the tires,the track was rubbered with NSR ahead of yesterday's Gr C race.On IPS race day i will run 100 laps each lane with a Ninco shod mule which i consider as "neutral" tire

                  This afternoon i took the cars to Nick's track for a photo shoot and it was too tempting to give the cars a spin so i did,10 laps each.During the race i think the deciding factor will be deslots.The cars to suffer will be 86,23,17 and 32 and the car that get my vote for stability are 54,30,98,68.Below are the results.For the record in last years race the winning car had a fastest lap of 5431 and the absolute fastest lap was 5428

                    I took a little weight out to try to pick up a little speed. It looks like it will cost me in the handling. Oh well. Someone else gets a shot at the podium. Good luck to all.

                      Alexis,
                      My car: April 6, 2018 at 8:51 pm Departed LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM. Hopefully you will have it by Monday. This was supposed to have been only 3 day time in transit. It is now day 3. I wonder if I can get a refund????????

                      My mistake. Went to the website 3-5 days time in transit. Hopefully you will have it Monday or Tuesday. Not sure if Saturday is a business day in Greece.

                          Happy Easter to you and your family. Maybe you'll have the car Tuesday or Wednesday.
