    Too right!!...

    The Anderstorp race was a lot of fun. I was thoroughly surprised to be keeping up with who I consider 'the fast guys'. For the first half of the race I was battling with Reggie. After a slow couple of laps before my pit stop, Arunas just got ahead of me as he left the pits a couple of laps later, and we swapped positions for 3rd right up until the last lap where I lost a second or so whilst adjusting the brake balance. SO much fun guys, thanks for that. Shame Bjorn got turned around early on, else he'd have been right there too.

    Race 2 at Macau. Well, it's not a track I like, and find it impossible to be consistant on, so it wasn't as much fun. I ran alone for the most part, and received a stop/go for speeding in the pit lane.

    Still. Anderstorp was one to remember.

    I've only been here with you guys for a year, but it's been gret fun when I've been able to make the races. I know for certain I'll race some of you again, and I hope to race the rest of you sometime in the future, wherever that may be.

    The races were very fun, I had more speed than I had anticipated in Anderstorp. Arunas and Bjorn really made things interesting in Macau, if that race was a lap longer, I think Arunas would have got me.

    A year and a half ago when I got my license here at RD, I was just looking for a place to race. Instead, I found much more. I found racers who were respectful, helpful, and above all else, people who ended up being great friends. They say it's the journey, not the destination that's important. And what a journey it has been. Thank you all for the wheel to wheel racing, setup advice, chatter on team speak and friendship. Hopefully we see each other soon, and until then I wish you all the best.

    Well i've taken it apart and i thinks its the micro switches . Ordered what i think is the correct ones and soon it will be time to get out the soldering iron :ninja: :roflmao: . After that , it'll probably be a new wheel.

    Damo :D

    Well , much dodgy soldering and micro switches replaced , then realised flappy was cracked. However after plenty of super glue , all seems well and working fine.
    Looking forward to our first mini race in ........ what ever its called , where someone hopefully can explain all the controls to me as i cant make head nor tail of it tbh.

    Damo :)
