Today was a strange day. It looks like I have entered the level or average along with Max in 2wd. That’s a first! I’m 15th and Max is 17th after 3 rounds, with 2 more to go. I believe this proves that the PR Racing new mid motor car is really good, because I sure haven’t improved in 2wd, and neither has Max! We haven’t run 2wd, I don’t know when Max last ran 2wd, I think some time last year. As for me it was at the Reedy Race in January. So great job PR Racing! Let’s take a look at what we have figured out at this race to dial it in even more to this slippery bumpy track!

 

The biggest improvement is the hole we drilled in the rear hub. A higher hole (3mm here) really improves rear grip a lot. Surely a change we will get PR to do in the future!

We moved the rear arm further forward, also for more grip!

We ground down the top of the steering knuckle, and ended up moving it up 1mm, to smooth out the steering.

I will post the final setup we ended up with after the race. For now we are happy to be in the B-final, and will try and improve as much as possible tomorrow. The track is breaking up quite a bit, and it will be interesting to see how bad it gets! Bring on tomorrow.

Today as we were waiting for the restaurant to open, we got some beers at a cafe. I ordered mothers breast milk (in Spanish) for Max. The waitress laughed and surprisingly brought Max some warm milk. Possibly breast milk. That's for his amazing 9th place in round 2!
