Season Recap 2015 aka the post G6 carnage report !

Here it is the end of the season recap.

I managed to finish more events that i started in but i still DNFed in both G6 this year, in Austria after gate 1 because of a stupid stupid error with the soldering on the transmitter (note to self , bring spare car next year and change transmitter) and in Italy , about 20 gates before the end because of a broken panhard mount, but i had lots of fun that day and i did loose my fear of water.

But on the other hand, Mojca won both the women’s classes and is the Driving Diva of Europe 2015 !!!!!!!

We also competed in our first Sorcca event , and we did fine, i managed a clean second stage but badly explained rules by the italians meant first stage was a write off .

I also attended the ASTS final in Retz and it is still amazing . Lukas set a super difficult course .

So lessons learned :

  • always carry a plastic bag with you
  • buy proper transmitter
  • build even tougher
  • build trucks to the rules
  • bring a spare car
  • and spare everything if possible
  • buy better tent pegs for Ersberg !
  • those pesky scale nuts
  • night runs are awesome !

Czech CEST 2015

Yesterday we got back from a 4 day trip to  the Czech event in Central European Scale Trophy in Dekanske Skaly in the Czech Republic. It was a blast !

20150801-CZCEST5

I got Second place in Class 2 / Ultimate and so did the team we were in . If Mojca didn’t get the penalised for lacking lights and accessories she would have won the class as she had a clean event and i had 3 gate touches .

We started after a group of LandRovers which were nice and all, but they had to winch themselves all over the place, which takes time. So the stage lasted 4 hours instead of 1.

Nothing broke on both our trucks. Mojca’s winch got snagged at one point, but she did manage to fix it .

The Cherokee can keep up with class 2 vehicles even though the tires are lower , the TCS skid plate helps a lot .

I feel i have to practice a bit more on the steeper decent, thats the only area I had issues with because of lack of confidence in me and not the truck.

The Servo Winch works great , only thing I could want is a bit more line speed.

Its time to start preparing for the next one , the Austrian G6 in 4 weeks time .
