Re: Aussie RCR T70 capers

Chris, Sorry for your luck. Did that get into the tub hard ? Also, how much fire damage ?

Regards Brian

Cool Re: Aussie RCR T70 capers

Just replaced broken upper A arm heim joint and steering arm bolts --a quick wheel alignment, nose back on and all good to go, finishing the last races
Some cracked fibreglass repairs needed -- the radiator dodged a bullet again thankfully and no noticeable fire damage

Wink Re: Aussie RCR T70 capers

We did our first enduro, w'end gone
so --we stuffed as much fuel into the tank as it would take ( turns out to be ~50 something litres) and hope for the best -- the race duration was to be 50 mins with a 45 sec pitstop/ or driver change
Most elements were covered -- dodging crash damage , oil spills, safety car period and rain
The goal was to finish!! --that we did, comfortably -- 5th from 20 and 3rd in class
The car never missed a beat and there was ~15 litres of fuel left
It now seems to be reliable and confidant
