Check, no setup required. Cars are plenty fast and lots o mid corner grip!

Sorry due lateness, yes these are well balanced out of the box.

It was a good race last night.  Its a blast in the Cortina.  You get totally mowed down on the straights but are all over the big cars in the bends as they try to turn and get the power down..... lots of fun!

Getting sick of being down the back, so much I will be fixing my G27 this weekend.

It is a great track, I had thought the Cortina would stuck it up the pony cars, but it just needed on more tight turn or a chicane... Glenn you certainly worked hard and kept the Steve and Simon honest!  ;D

The Capris and Escort are certainly a good car out of the box, I think next week we should just run with the Capri, it makes it simpler and hopefully plenty of door to door racing on the longer track next week...

Well my car sounded good, even if I couldn't keep it on the road, I ended up needing to use just one hand on the wheel once it got 90 degrees off centre and for the most of the time it worked, most of the time... I did a lot of short cuts, unintentionly, but once I headed in the wrong direction, it was quicker to just "go with the flow" hhhehe...
see you next week.
