Nitro Slam

The Aero Racing team presented at the Perth Motorplex for Nitro Slam to continue the Top Comp battle.

We are always trying to improve the performance, so the idea of a shorter wheelie bar fabricated by Jenks at JPS was tried, but further testing is required to get that right with the converter drive combination.

First qualifier smoked the tyres, and second a big wheelie that had to be aborted.

Back on with our usual long wheelie bar and a gearbox ratio change for the match up with Russell Ladbrook in the altered.

What a race! – side by side all the way and Russell winning by half a car length with a 5.982 @ 367.15 to PC’s quicker 5.954 @ 360.69. Russell winning on a hole shot and progressed to the A Final.

Great team effort from the crew under the pump between races.

We now take a month break in preparation for the Westernationals on March 4-5th
