Club Craig - 2014-9

The wind is going the wrong way...

It's cooling down at quite a rate. This morning was qutie a nice. The wind is from the north, making my morning commute quite interesting. I'm not a fan of a head wind, but there's not much I can do about it.

You can't beat this crisp feeling though.


Getting back into 4wd touring

Since I used the TB-04 for most of the 24 hour race.... I've spent the last couple of weekends trying to practice and improve my technique with this car.

To be fair, I haven't don't touring for a number of years. I prefer either direct drive or fwd... I love my kart and my 2 GTs from Kawada.

But I am really enjoying this. I've never had a shaft driven car of this type before. I've mainly had belt drives. The one thing I've noticed is that I've had to replace the gears a lot more than in the belt-driven cars. I've replaced the rear gearbox to all metal gears and now the shaft end-gear melted on me yesterday. I asked about it and they've just said it's a part of owning a shaft driven car. It's a good thing the parts are cheap.

But saying that, it takes 12 screws to gain access to the front diff... I guess I shouldn't complain too much, it's not a high-end chassis but still, it takes a lot of wrist work.

I had a BMW... then I had the La Ferrari body for the race... Now, I'm onto a BMW Z4... I really like the RC bodies that look like real cars.... It just looks so much cooler when they race.


Time for a selfie

My shadow was taking it's own selfie's this morning.

I'm loving this cooler weather. You still sweat on the bike, but when you stop, the breeze tends to cool you rather than boil you.

Bring on WINTER!!!


How about a cycle?

It's a nice day for a cycle.
Would you like to join me?
