Some of the last updates before the comp #1.

Kuva
Rear link setup and green springs on both sides. What would be the best way to disable torque twist in this kind of setup?

Kuva
Relocated the gunnar body mount on the rear. Kuva

Kuva
Motor on the place now.

Kuva
Sanwa receiver now in the shrink.

Kuva
Ready for test drive number two. Kuva

Kuva
Everything seems to be working. Lets see the weight.

Kuva
Still not too much, if you consider all the weight in front axle. Kuva

Kuva
And here's a poor picture of the electronics. BR-Mini, CC BEC and Sanwa receiver all in shrinks.

Still little things to do before the comp, but now it's up and running, which is the most important thing. Kuva

...unlike my shafty... Kuva

Hyvältä näyttää! Nyt on auto vielä aiempaa paremmassa tikissä, joten Sofi voi hyvinkin yllättää tällä kaudella.
Mielenkiintoinen kausi tiedossa ja hyvä niin!   8)

Onnea! Ajamalla voittoon ja oli hienoa seurata kuinka rauhallista ja hallittua ajaminen oli!
Tuosta on hyvä jatkaa, ansaittu voitto ja siitä se alkaa! Auto pelaa hienosti ja kuskikin
hallitsee sitä ammattitaidolla.

Luvassa huikea kausi 2015, hyvä SOFI!   8)

First comp of the year behind! Kuva

Kuva
The Arctic Special started with -3 Celcius degrees and slight snowfall.

Kuva
Sofi anxious to get driving!

Kuva
The Arctic special setup contains no shock oil and no over-or underdrive gears in axles. Kuva

Kuva
Course three on the way.

Kuva
The grip seems to be suprisingly good! Kuva

Kuva
And Carnage is working like a dream!

Kuva
Two more gates and course is finished with only one reverse.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmCr_FD ... GFl4TY7TsQ
Course four in video. This course was the decider for the success. Kuva

Kuva
First ever victory to Sofi in crawling! KuvaKuva

Kuva
Rig was working excellent and the driving was phenominal!

Kuva
You might think "Only two drivers, how hard can it be?!" Well to be fair Saku got himself position 12. in last years Worlds, so the rival is a tough one for sure! And tough was the competition also! Kuva

Kuva
It's very good to continue from this in the next comp. It'll take place indoors after six weeks. Kuva

Kuva
Finnish afternoon got dark before we left. Fantastic first annual Arctic Special! Kuva

Kuva
The victory is noted elsewhere too. You can see the pins working on ice and snow as well! Kuva

So, first comp behind. I managed to get the first position!! Yeah! Kuva

First of all I have to say that the tracks were perfect. I was a bit concerned about the snow because I thought that there were going to be plenty of ice under the snow and yea there was. Lucky for me I had the right tire choice. Voodoos worked wonderfully! So I think, if those tires work perfectly in the snow they'll work anywhere!

Carnage is pretty good at the moment Kuva A lot of changes have been made. It's totally a different car than it was last year. The motor gives it a really nice boost. It's going to be a good year for carnage!

Even if we had just two competitors in the shafty class the competiton was still tough! Saku is a really good driver so I'm absolutely surprised that I managed to beat him. It was a fun race with good company! I have to say that I'm still pretty amazed myself. Kuva This was a good start for the season 2015!

Time for some updates before next comp! Kuva

Kuva
Set of new goodies for Carnage!

Kuva
Overdrive ratio for the front axle, DravTech CF motor plate and Holmes Hobbies longer outputs for the transmission. Kuva

Kuva
Transmission stuff assembled.

Kuva
Wanted to have these outputs, so Sofi can run with my Stampede shafts still. Kuva

Kuva
And of course some DravTech quality. Kuva

Kuva
Much better!

Kuva
Now the shaft won't fell off during some WHEELSPEED!! Kuva

Kuva
I've never been a huge fan of aluminium screws. Now though, things have changed. Kuva

Kuva
Putting them everywhere I can. Kuva

Kuva
I also changed the ratio in front axle. Super Shafty send the axle with underdrive, which really wasn't the plan.. Kuva

Kuva
With that done, there's still few things to do. I'll continue from this tomorrow. Kuva

Final stretch before the comp.

Kuva
New shock oil. 40wt oil to each shock.

Kuva
Body cutting to minimize them sides touching. Kuva

Kuva
RTR weight for the comp.

Kuva
RFOT's Crawl Cup 2015 current leader. Kuva

Kuva
Will be really interesting to see how the modifications after winter to this rig are working. If Sofi continues to drive as in the first comp it's a quarateed top 4. Kuva It's the nerves. Kuva We have six registered drivers to comp. Good amount of people in the terms of finnish comps. Kuva As usual pics and video will follow later.

Bunker Indoor comp now behind, with mixed feelings.

Kuva
Already third winter comp in this Bunker.

Kuva
Tons of rigs in line and before the comp very good mood! Kuva

Kuva
Sofi on course number two.

Kuva
On course three. This was the best course for her.

Kuva
Rig was working excellent. Even better than in the Arctic Special. Only thing that broke during the comp was front XR shaft after massive accelaration into a hole. Kuva A little pieces of shaft were flying in the air! Kuva

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=p ... bjxVphrmF0
Here is course three on video. Kuva

Kuva
Fifth spot only two points behind our goal. It's not that bad, but it could be weay better. But like me, neither is Sofi a huge fan of tight indoor courses. I do belive the driving will improve to the next comp when we get outside on dry rocks. Kuva

Now we are waiting for the snow to melt and after five weeks the next comp. Possibly some training before it too. Kuva

Feelings after bunker shafty performance are not that good. But I can't but the blame on Carnage because it worked amazingly despite one little repair with the front XR shaft. Maybe my acceleration was a bit too heavy KuvaSo maybe few pointless gates and too slow driving gave me extra points. Of course other competitiors were extremely talented so it was a tight race until the end. But there is no time for worrying. Got to keep head up and make better results next time! Kuva

2 ekaa rataa oli ihan järkyttävän vaikeita shaftylle, joten turha murehtia. Sitä runnottiin kunnolla, kun vetarikin poikkastiin, mutta mitä sitten   :D
Taso on kova ja tuolla on kuskeja, joilla on "muutama" kisa enemmän kokemusta ylipäänsä crawlingista. Hyvin siis vedetty ja kehitystä on
tässäkin tapahtunut. Malttia, omia ajatuksia ajolinjoista ja tiimipäällikön viisaiden sanojen säestyksellä kehitys jatkuu.

Tuosta on hyvä jatkaa ja tuot siihen aina pienen ripauksen sitä, että teetkin itse, eikä tarvi enää spotteria, niin kehityt ja kunnia on kokonaan sinun   ;)

Nothing much to do before the next comp. Sofi has been too busy with school, so it's straight from the bunker comp to the next one. Kuva Well at least the rig is cabable of anything. Kuva

Kuva
Tightening the screws mostly. Just noticed that the threads in the gearbox seems to be quite bad. Might have to invest for a new housing. Kuva

Kuva
It's ready to go for it. Eleven drivers registed so far for the comp, so objective would be top six position. Kuva Should be doable is she keeps them nerves under control. Kuva

Kuva
Let's hope for a good weather. It has changed a lot in recent days.

RFOT's Crawl Cup 2015 comp three is now behind with an excellent result! Kuva

Kuva
We had a record participation in the shafty class. 14 starters in total. Kuva

Kuva
Sofi had not trained at all after last comp, so it was gonna be interesting day for sure.

Kuva
Thumbs up either way, good or bad. Kuva

Kuva
HH power making this thing fly! Kuva

Kuva
We found a small problem with the rig during the comp. The threading in the transmission was worn out and the whole thing was tightened by one screw. Two roll overs were made because of the risk of it to fall off. Kuva

Kuva
Will have to buy a new housing for the next comp.

Kuva
Sofi did a really good day, bearing in mind that she had no training. Kuva

Kuva
And the rig is working like a dream! Kuva

Kuva
Last course finished. Wanna see it?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=p ... tOY3KUedzY
Course four here. Excellent driving in a difficult conditions.

Kuva
On the result board Sofi ended up in sixth spot. That's a really good effort in that crew. Now some training before the next comp and she can improve the position from that! Kuva

Unfortunately Sofi won't be able to attend our next team event, but she'll be at the starting line on the finnish series opener on may. Kuva

Another RFOT's Crawl Cup comp behind. It was fun but long day. I'm quite satisfied with the results. Courses were drivable. Only problem that I had was the threading in the transmission what had worn out. But all in all a good comp for carnage! And as Samu said the rig is really working like a dream and I do absolutely agree on that! Kuva

Time for update! A well needed one.

Kuva
New transmission housings! Kuva

Kuva
When we put this to the rig, Sofi can finally take it to the max! Kuva

Kuva
It's there! New threading and the housing is tightly secured now.

Kuva
Rig is ready for the finnish series opener tomorrow. Sofi hasn't been driving with this since the last comp, so it's interesting to see what she manages without training. It's the first time in two years, that she can attend to a finnish series comp. Ten drivers registered and I would be saying top six position is in reach. Kuva

First Finnish Series comp behind for this year.

Kuva
Probably the northern most crawling comp in the world. Cool place though.

Kuva
Sofi didn't have her best day in terms of driving. Lots of stupid gates on the way. Kuva

Kuva
Rig was working all day, but the driver seemed to forgot how to drive it. Kuva

Kuva
It's probably the lack of training doing that.

Kuva
Courses were difficult this time too. So they left no room for rookie mistakes.

Kuva
Sofi managed to finish two courses out of four. But so did a lot of other guys as well.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1dMCkEyprc
Course one here. Even in that course there was two stupid gates involved. You'de better watch out better how you enter the gate.

Kuva
Tenth position this time. Luckily a new comp is just behind the corner. It's time to forgot the mistakes in this one.


Kuva
And the rig is more than ready for tomorrows comp in Rauma. Kuva

Kuva
Eleven starters registered in the shafty class. We'll hope for more calm driving by Sofi. Should be fun day outdoors and maybe some good performances as well. Kuva
