Event Report

Here’s the story on my latest run with the R/C Bullet in Utah on June 27th & 28th 2014.

It was Hot and the wind picked up like clockwork at 1pm. Since it was a cross-wind, that meant – 1pm = done for the day
The heat rising from the asphalt caused the timing error on the 3rd run. 
Run 7 was scary to me. The car was drifting to the left, and I had the wheel full right as I accelerated, but I realized that wasn't going to be enough to make it through the trap. 
So I hit the dual-rate over-ride and continued to accelerate through the trap on a slight diagonal....  ----- Not what I wanted to do….
Let me explain 
The asphalt there is about 40 feet wide (total), but the line without a bump is only about 8 feet wide. A very narrow envelope. 
On that run I HIT the bump –---- but the Bullet stayed on the ground. Woo Hoo!  

The 6th run looked so fast! (I wish I had video from my view-point) 
All and all, did not break a thing. That's an accomplishment - in and of it self...  Cool
To say this is a lot of work, ---- IS an Understatement.  Tongue
