I've been very lazy over the last few months and haven't posted up anything, so thought I might post a couple of photos of my restored Monster Racer on the track at St Ives.
I visted the track with TC Members Jak Rizzo and Jesse James a few months back with the intention of getting the truck dirty for the first time since I restored it by doing a few laps at full pace. Sadly, it seems I am useless and failed to build my gearbox correctly and the diff was slipping so badly, I never got a lap out of it. :-(
So here we go.....the only 2 photos Jak could recover from the session. He tells me the rest were all rubbish, I have to assume it's due to the fact that he would have been expecting to capture a much faster moving object on film ;-)
The good news is, since these photos were taken the diff has been rebuilt and the truck has completed a race day at Castle Hill. It's no longer quite as pretty, but with its Hi Caps and Technipower motor, it's a ton of fun to drive. ;-) oh yeah, the travel issues in the shocks as seen in the second photo have also been fixed.....now more in the rear and less in the front. :-)
If you liked those pictures, you should see these...
