The current heat wave of 35 degrees celsius is putting a serious dent into my life , not to mention RC .
But we did manage a nice 2 hour trail and crawl at an amazing location on Vrsic pass.
its a nice very nice location accessible by car an hour and something away from Ljubljana. the mountain pass is at 1611 meters height, so the temperature was a nice 25 degrees celsius.
we made it up a trail for about 150 meters then turned back on a different route . the terrain was nice, quite steep , lots of rocks and lots of fine dust which wrecked havoc with traction at points.
Mojca is running a new set of the 1.9 Falken wild peaks on her G6 jeep and the extra height was quite noticeable compared to the Cherokee. I had to use the throttle on some sections to slide it over. Mojca also runs a new Tower Pro MG968 DIGI 2 servo. with its 24kgs of torque it was so strong it first bent the rod end on the steering link, then eventually it broke it . The whole link will get replaced with the traxxas revo rod ends. Mojca is finally getting used to the sliders which don’t bend.
Whilst Mojca was having problems with the rod end popping of , i popped a bead . I guess the nuts got loose, but I reseated the bead on the trail and made it fine to the end. The tires are getting pretty chewed up, Thew will have to last for the Czech event , but for the G6 pair, a new set should be on order .
It was a great little Sunday trip, which served as an indicator on what to fix and tweak before the Czech event .
