Aswould expect all the bikers are hella cool.
A lot of people have come up and ask about the the FPM. And seem to like it. The Brits John Veal and Allen Watkins say it "looks like a proper bike".

Look out for the new TT, it is an amazing bike. I hope it makes it to preduction.

The new ARX is a good looking bike also and those guys are going fast with it.

Like I said in a previous post, this is RC bike Heaven.

They like to drink beer here and I'm finding myself to much obliging when I'm offered another beer.
I will keep trying to give write something every day.

Just Two?
They have a concession stand at the track and you can buy a 20oz beer for 1.30 euros.
And it feels like the beer has a higher alcohol content to me.
Patrick arrived yesterday in the afternoon and we had dinner with Hugo last night.
It is 5:30am here and we cannot sleep, too wound up thinking about the bikes. We want to get to track early to get some stuff done.
I had a good practice session, getting around the track raeal smooth then had a big tumble coming onto the back straight. Now I seem to have some esc trouble. Can't really explain it just no power. I did run the FPM yesterday but the clutch just won't let go so the motor pushes the bike into the turn and it won't slow down. The bike is running very well and it handles great, I just can't slow it down enough. Which means I can't really get on the gas. It does sound wicked cool down the back straight.
I have been taking pictures just haven't downloaded them yet.
The Europeans are seriuos about their RC-Bike racing.

it's in France next year.

like stubby said... bike heaven here. lap times are falling like rocks. what was considered a fast lap time at the pre-worlds is standard now.

the thing about beer here is that it goes down smooth. you can drink a lot without getting buzzed. you can still focus on driving a superbike after downing a few.

try a stiffer clutch spring. it sounds like the current springs might be to soft for the rpm the motor is running

The days are crazy long at the track. I've only been sleeping 4-5 hours a night. It is drive charge drive charge all day and yesterday there were about 50 or 60 people driving.
Like Torrance said there are some fast drivers. Did I tell you guys that the track is fast. If I had to guess the fast guys are doing 55mph down the back stretch.
This is whole different level of racing than I am acustomed to you.
Imagine bikes on the track for all the time the sun is up and no breaks. Bikes going around the track and around the track all day long non stop. It is intense.

News on the FPM, it is a wicked beastie. I got the clutch situation worked out, and got it to idle. Has a nice blap blap blap tone and it will stop now. But when it goes, golly gee, grab your sock and hold on. It is crazy fast. The GRPs I'm running on it cannot take the exceleration.
It is time to eat our continental breakfast and head to the track.
I will try to write more today and get some pictures posted.
