OUCH :S :S :S

You did choose your "team-name" right... G'Luck Racing... both of you were lucky to get out of it not being injured !!!
A bit sad for the poor Jimny :(.

Mechanical problems or "drivers fault"... if you can speak about a "fault" when you were just a little bit too enthusiastic ?

Just not enough tests. Car was delayed, so I have decided to test it on a race and was a little bit too enthusiastic with the speed in that corner and with too soft suspension which is good for straights only,
Nothing too serious though, everything can be repaired. But thinking of increasing the wheel base. It is too short, it keeps sliding or I'll have to slow down on all corners which is also bad for the overal timing.

The best view now is like that:


Panar rod mounting and cardan joint was broken, radiator was torn by fan from the inside. Battery was damaged by the jolt and doesn't keep the charge. Front window was broken by shnorkel, rear and rear-side windows destroyed. Lot of body damage. Have jsut delievered the car to my workshop, so the list will probably grow :)
