Report interessante by Alessio Mazzeo
First big race, first big test. Very hard track layout and very difficult track conditions. We lost one test day to the rain. In qualy I was always fast but I have done a lot of mistakes because I didn’t have much feeling for the track. In Q1 I closed 2nd behind Bruno; in Q2 I have flipped after 8 laps and I finished 10th. In warm up practice we have changed the set up a bit to find more stability. In the final I started with number 8.
We were really fast but after 3 laps in an overtake maneuver I have flipped and I was last. I have pushed for the whole final to recover the gap. I also had a flame out at the second tyre change. I have changed all 4 tires 2 times. But neverthless, we are arrived in second place behind Bruno. I‘m realy happy for the result of the new car, and really happy for both Bruno'victory. The work of this winter is bringing its fruit."

Ecco un bell'articolo censito da Jarno Pijpers
Last weekend I was at the second Dutch national championship at RMCA Almelo which is a small ASTRO-TURF track.
After the qualifications I had the fourth place. In the semi B I started behind Bart Mullink and I finished second. I had a good start in the A main. After a few laps behind Bart Mullink I made a mistake. It was a race between Sander, Jordy and me. After a while I had the third spot, a second behind Sander. But after a few laps , Bart Mulnik got an electronic failure at the lead. So Sander an I moved on to the first and second spot. After a while Sander made a mistake and I passed him. Then Jordy came closer to Sander and they where battling fore the second place. While they where battling I got a gap between me and the second. There where only 5 minutes left so I had to just drive to the end and it would end with me winning. My XRAY XB8 was easy to drive , so thanks to my dad for the set-up. Also my FX -K3 was great.

New Lexan Rear Wing - 1/8 Off-road
 XRAY own design
 Premium Lexan material
 Designed for XB8 platform
 Fits XB8, XB8E, XT8
 Pre-cut for maximum comfort
 Super lightweight
 Very strong
 Rear pre-bent wicker area
 Adjustable position
 Center fins adds stability & strength
XRAY super lighweight 1/8 off-road lexan wing designed for a perfect fit to XB8 and working
in conjuction with the XRAY off-road bodies. The wing is produced from high-quality original
Lexan material and is completely pre-cut for maximum comfort.
The wing has an adjustable position and consists from two pieces, the main wing and the
center fin that adds more stability and increases strength of the wing around the mounting
area. The rear part of the wing is pre-bent to reinforce the wing and eliminates the use of
additional heavy composite wickers. This makes the back of the wing strong while still
allowing for wing flex in the crash. The pre-bent rear part for the wing is used also by
purpose as an important downforce area feature. Used by the factory team and suggested
for all track conditions.

    • Ciao a tutti, Premetto che è da un po' che non frequento il forum così come il nostro amato hobby (poco tempo a disposizione). Mi sono letto in questi giorni un po' di articoli sul Gt 1/8. Non capisco se mi è sfuggito qualcosa o se effettivamente le cose stanno così. Mentre nel resto d'Europa esiste la categoria GT 1/8 con cambio, trasmissione a cardano e carrozzerie touring; in Italia abbiamo introdotto una nuova categoria che esiste solo da noi con l'illusione di avvicinare nuova gente a questo hobby e dare nuova vita alla categoria GT 1/8. Ma così facendo non si ottiene l'esatto opposto? permettetemi un paragone è come se da noi ci si inventasse il calcio a 9, mentre nel resto del mondo si continua con quello classico; lo trovo al quanto strano. Perché non possiamo avere la stessa categoria e relativo regolamento che c'è in Europa? Se ho detto qualche o troppe inesattezze correggetemi pure.   Alessandro

    • ok capito, grazie Antonio 
    • Le misure che ti hanno consigliato sono esatte, se usi punte più grandi ottieni una filettatura molto più sottile, debole e facile da spanare.
    • Grazie, ma non sono troppo piccoli?
