Yer, seems like everyone had a good day, and congrats to Shaun for the 10 lapper. I was watching you after I bombed out in the final and you are just in a whole other class.

Lenny, I think I know your secret . How much do you think its worth??

I wasn't very happy with my bike, I made too many changes and was compensating all day for crappy steering. In an attempt to make it better for the final, I made more changes and it went down hill from there. Lessons learned: no major changes just before a meet without major testing, and use LOCKTITE!

Cheers
Ben

Yeah, I guess kind of...
I swapped that burnt out brushed electric motor in my new stock bike with the novak ss5800. Went back to the fuel line steering set-up.

Lenny, I thought you went back to springs.. Next time we're at the track I'd like to help you get that bike of yours setup a bit better, ride hight, steering etc..

I don't think I'll be able to make the worker bee tomorrow, if any of you guys were going to be there..

I thought it was on the 18th ?. Havent checked but I remembered thats what it originally was on the calendar on the website because thats the wifes birthday and hence I wont be there.
The Interclub is 11th and 12th i think.

I'm keen for a run sometime before though, you mean tomorrow Saturday ?.
I've got a nephew birthday and a couple of other little jobs to do but I should be able to make it out. Let me know what time you're thinking.

Didnt make it to the worker bee, been flat out on the weekends lately checking out properties, its kinda fun but not as fun as racing

Hey Martyman,

Welcome aboard, Good to have another rc biker on the grid.
If you're placing a order, Can I add a couple of items, and split the shipping cost?

Whats happening Saturday? When & Where?

Lenny,.. I think Gilly on Saturday would be good, then Marty can get some practice on it.. Maybe even have him on the grid with us at our next meet..

Marty,.. if we don't get your bike running by our next race, I've got a spare bike I don't mind you running..
