Results are up in the 1st post.
It looks like it was a really interesting race between Phil and Kcender.

It's a 3dof one (seat mover & rear traction loss - pitch, roll and yaw) and I built it myself. A mate up in Moloolaba has built one quite a few yeas ago...I tried it...and crazy me couldn't resist of course :-)

Yes, I know this project and I'm following it. A mate of mine is pretty keen on getting started on it. I've got a design ready to go, but can't really justify the expenses attached to building a 2nd one. See what happens...maybe later.

Pleeaase no, that would be too embarrassing  ;)
I mean the rig is ok I think, it's just that I should be a bit faster with it. Need more seat time, yeah.

I'm pretty sure my video card shat itself last night and needs to be RMAd. The screen locked up and went multicoloured, and when I rebooted, Windows no longer recognised the card because it reported an error. I updated drivers with a clean install, downgraded drivers, reseated the card, but it would no longer be recognised by Windows. So I've chucked my 980 back in for now.

I'll get the results up tonight.
Nooooo, bummer.

I think I'm too embarrassed to talk about my race .... my own worst enemy  :-[ Blew the only chance the handicapped Shorty had of winning a race. Still struggling to see why the Shorty was handicapped at all, let alone still handicapped ...
But then I found the second half of the race to be fun trying to come back from a lap down  ;D  So that's a positive  :o

Here's a picture (no idea if this is working :-)

Just let me know if you're up here in Brissie and if you want to give it a go.

Cheers mate. I use it for all my cheat sheets about how to set up a car...that's pretty handy. It's nice to have some spare pixels available for whatever software you use for setting up/adjusting gear.
