Motor update before the next battle!  Cool


My new Castle 1515 2200kv motor arrived just in time.  Smiley


Slightly longer can. More torque in this beast!  Grin


Tested it out with 13t pinion. It doesn't go as fast, but the speed is plenty enough I think. But the better thing would be the low end torque which this motor offers. Interesting to see it on the hills.  Wink


Twleve rigs on the line in search for gold and glory!  Wink Comp is on sunday and I'm ready for it. Bring it on! Cool

Onnittelut voitosta suonenjoella, paras voitti! Silti hieno huomata, että (vain) 70 ja 80p jäi seuraavat, kausi on vielä tiukkaakin tiukempi  Wink

Jep, pelit on vasta aluillaan! Kiitokset!

Another great comp behind!


Twelve rigs ready to start!  Wink


Let's see the power of that motor.


So far so good.


A little jump downhill and really tight line towards the next gate.


Dunno what happened here, but I truely missed the gate entirely.  Cheesy


Course three on the way!


Really steep downhill section.


Made it with one gate.


And extreme vertical section to the end!  Grin


Nobody made that.


Course number six.


Clean run so far.


And downhill again. No problem there what so ever.


Towards the end! The new motor doesn't seem to have quite the same power as the old one. But I think changing my pinion from 12T to 15T will make it good.

https://youtu.be/gFOPZHHICn0
Here is a clip from timed course. Really fun one this time. Got to see the handling at full throttle!   Cheesy


First position with just 70 point marginal to the second. Good day for me overall! Cool


Here are the results.

Next comp will be driven in the end of june. It's time to get some rest before the battle continues.  Wink

Long time without updating. To be honest, I haven't had any time to do a thing for this rig. Not that it needs anything though.  Roll Eyes


Regardless, it's ready for the fourth comp of Foff Cup 2015. Just tightened screws and bolts.  Wink


The weather forecast for tomorrow doesn't look too good, but let's hope for the best. Cool Trying to get another victory and strenghten the lead in the championship.  Wink

Fourth comp of Foff Cup 2015 is now done.


Cloudy saturday morning opened couple of weeks ago. (Sorry for the late update!)


We didn't get quite as many participants as last time. But the comp was on with these as well!  Grin


Course one here.


Total disaster for me. Rolled over just after the first gate. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Found myself at the last position after first course...  Cry


Rest of the day, I got the strategy all or nothing. Cool


Course two on the way.


Jumping downhill. Cool


The course builders did their best to make difficult gates. This was really tricky since  the cliff was really slippery.


Got stuck just under the finishing gate.  Undecided


Last course here. I made this one.  Tongue


You'de have to get really exact line to the next gate from here.


I managed to do that and here I was turning at the bottom of the hill.


On the way to the final gate! POWAAAAAAAA!!  Grin


Flight just as I planned!  Wink


Except for that one marker. I was happy about this performance! Cool

https://youtu.be/ftSNvTF6CTA
And here we have the final course on video! Cool stuff!  Cool


After a horrible start to the competition I managed to get myself on the podium. I can be pleased with that.  Smiley


These results meant, that I'm now second in the overall standings in Foff Cup 2015. Three points behind the leader. It's gonna be tight one! Cool

Next comp will be just after two weeks in one of my favorite spots. Gotta do some tuning to the suspension and steering before that.  Wink Week after that comp it's time to drive the Finnish Nationals. I'll have to do some training... Cool

Today it was time to get the suspension working better and do some training.


First I replaced a broken part from the rear axle.


Bought dirty cheap spare rig.


New part for it!


Actually I bough two spare rigs. This is Hobao Hyper ST, which is the same as my previous rig. It's yet to decide, what to do with this.  Grin


Part replaced!  Smiley


The old part had just broken in half.


Adjusted the front and rear suspension a bit lower.


Off to the nearby sandpit to test it out.


The suspension is now better, but I'm not still satisfied with the steering. To be honest it's quite poor at the moment...  Undecided


Didn't broke anything. I'll be changing the diff oils next if that does a difference.

Two weeks till the next comp. Plenty of time to tune it right.  Cheesy

Time to do some minor changes before the comp tomorrow.


First I would like to put a little bit stiffer oil to the central diff.


Gears were in excellent shape.


But the other bearing didn't look so good. I replaced this one.


Will this be enough? Time will tell...


Almost all set. You have to drink something during the tech.  Grin


All set for the wet race tomorrow. Switched my little toe-out to a zero toe-in. It turns little bit better on solid ground, but time will tell what are the effects of these mods on the hill.  Smiley

Gotta drive pretty well, since I'm three points behind the leader in the cup standings. Tomorrows competition will be the fifth of total six competitions. Let's hope for the best!  Wink

Another comp of Foff Cup 2015 is now done!


As the forecast promised the rain was there.


Luckily we had prepared for that.  Cheesy


Some crazy courses were waiting for the rigs!  Grin


Wanderer waterproofed!  Grin


Last gate of course one. Was really satisfied clearing that gate!  Wink


Few of the gates on course two.


Starting the course in question.


I'm really pleased how my modifications worked out. It was hard sand, but still. The steering on the hill improved rapidly.  Shocked


It was also easier to control on the timed course.


Going for the final gate of course two.


Pretty darn nice!! Cool


Didn't broke anything and that's cool! Really happy about my performances overall.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wBlAZs7EfY
Here is the first course on video. Awesome, awesome feeling to make that vertical cliff!  Cool


First place! And now on first place again in the series. One more comp to go on October.  Wink


Here are the results. My arch enemy Saku had to retire the comp and that gave me another chance in the cup.

Tomorrow it's time to prepare the rig for the Finnish Nationals on saturday!  Smiley

Time to fix this for the most important competition of the year.


Some damage to the C-Hub attachment...


I replaced it with a straight one.


Shaved a little bit the steering bits to get the max steering, what this rig has to offer.


Sorry for the bad pics. But also shaved from the c hub.


Other than these, it's ready for tomorrow. Steering improved a little bit after shaving the bits. Let's see how it turns tomorrow on the comp.


RC Formula Offroad Finnish Championships. Seven participants in each class. It's gonna be epic fight!  Smiley

Hopefully everything goes as well as last weekend and I can drive without any incidents.  Wink As usual pics and video will follow. Cool

Back from the Nationals, which was an epic competition all the way!


Best courses, that Finland has to offer for the Unlimited class. Just epic!  Shocked


Lots of these vertical spots were included on the courses.


Camp was set and everyone was feeling good before the comp. Weather was great all day. Little bit chilly, but not a single drop of water.  Cool


Wanderer was ready for the opening course.


Seven drivers and rigs showed up to the line.  Wink


The best of the best!!  Smiley


Course three on the way!


After first two courses there were close battle between me and Arttu. We were only separated by twenty points, which is practically hitting one marker.  Cheesy


Flying up to the cliff.


Down we go. Carefully.... Cool


That went well. Time to go up again!


On the edge of death.  Cool


Guys building the last course.  Shocked Shocked


It's was gonna be one of a kind.  Grin


Let's go for it!


I had good sixty point lead before this course.


This was only the third gate of the course.  Grin


I chose the hard way to come down again.


The fourth gate. That's where I needed to be to take the victory!  Cool


Pretty astonishing fifth gate next.


Flipped it over after that gate...  Cry

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLwoxdC2A6E
Here are all of my performances of the competition! Pretty happy about how it turned out!  Wink


Still feeling great after getting the title!! Cool


Not a big gap between me and Arttu. It surely was a tight comp!  Smiley

Now it's time to take a two moth rest before the last two competitions of this pretty small formula offroad season. There will still be a fight for the Foff Cup victory.  Wink

It's been quite a while since I've driven this rig and now it's time to prepare for next weekends competition.


Fixed my rear shock and filled the shocks for this event. Otherwise it was basically ready to go.  Wink


Completely new compground on the last competition of Foff Cup this year. It's gonna be a close battle for the title! Cool

Last comp of Foff Cup 2015 is done. And what a comp it was!  Shocked


Completely new comp spot offered great hills for driving!


These pics are from the last course.


Had a good first half of the competition.


Only one thing bothered a little while. A little rock was jammed in my steering on course two. So with no steering I wasn't able to finish the course.


On the timed course it all went wrong. I left like a madman from the line and didn't drive wisely there. On the middle part of the course I rolled the rig over and that was it.  Angry


Dropped down from the first position to third. Which got me thinking, that the championship will get really tight because of this.


I tried my best for catching up, but wasn't able to squeeze the gap.


So the championship would be basically chosen by which is better on the last course. Me or my brother, who I was driving against.  Grin


I was the first one to tackle the course. Got one marker and as you can see, wasn't able to make it on the top.


Really difficult final gate for sure. My brother made it to the same spot, but hit two markers. Breathing freely again.  Grin

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfFq4vrmBtE
Here is the fifth course on video. I knew too well the situation and cursed for hitting the gates.  Grin


At the end I was able to keep my third position in the comp. Big respect for the top two! Amazing driving!  Smiley


As you can see I was way off from the lead there.  Embarrassed


Luckily though, with equal 122 points, but me having a better discounted competition I was able to take the championship title 2015!! Cool Cool


It was nerveracking, but well worth it. This is racing at it's best! Thanks to Saku for this challenge!  Wink

One more comp to go and then we can start planning for next season. We'll get back on course after two weeks.

Time to get Wanderer ready for Old Boys Competition VI, which is the season closer this year.


Just basic screw tightening is enough this time.


Rollgage got hit in the last comp.  Roll Eyes Have to make it stand out straight next year.  Grin


Otherwise it's ready for saturday. It's gonna be yet another tough competition. The comp ground is really extreme.  Grin

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1j1iKuYmjDzp7e3rT-oQiIdswKYvafA5-T2DFvB_Cps8/pubhtml
Here is live scoring for the comp. It starts at 09:00AM CET on saturday morning. Should be good fun all day!  Wink

Last competition of the season is now done as well.


We got some serious courses in this one!  Grin


Some of the finishes were a bit extreme.  Tongue


This for example.  Grin


Blasting through course one!


No problems so far. I was bit afraid, that there might be some small stones locking my wheels on the course. Luckily this time it didn't happen.


First two courses went well and I was tied with Saku.


But on the third course I made a huge mistake and scored only 120 points.  Embarrassed


On the fifth course I was able to get my driving under control again, and I was able to push for the victory.


That was as far as I could get!  Cheesy


Before this happened.


I was 190 points behind Saku before the final course, which turned out to be a real killer.


This time though it was Saku's time to make a huge mistake and I took full advantage of that winning the competition by 90 points!  Smiley

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7IpEZNyR9s
Here is the fifth course on video. This was pretty good for me!  Wink


Results are here. As you can see, I was pretty far back before the fifth course. Quite ok comp for me.

Now it is time to put Wanderer to the shelf and start planning what to do with it for the next season. Hmmmm....  Grin

Time for this rig to start the season as well. First comp was held last weekend in Vääksy.


Nearly sunny weather welcomed us in the heights of Näkkimäki.  Smiley


Nothing has been changed from last season and the rig is ready to start delivering again. Cool


The comp ground was challenging and we made some really good courses in there.


What could be better way to start the day, than a pint.  Grin


Massive amount of rigs showed up in the line!  Wink


Starting the first course.


Made first course up with one gate. On this second course my driving was perfect, but a small stone got jammed between the arm and the wheel and that's why I had to reverse to get it off.  Lips sealed


Drivers are gathering to begin the timed course.


I decided to went for it hard!  Grin


And that seemed to pay off.


Fastest time without mistakes.


I had to start the fifth course and my line through this final bit was incorrect. This failure meant, that I was tied with Arto before the last course.  Shocked


Luckily nothing broke.


On the last course I was pretty nervous, cause Arto drove up and I knew that I had to do a perfect run to go pass.

https://youtu.be/sPsSYw2cX-E
From this video you'll find out how did it end.  Grin And you'll get to see the other performances too.


After a really tough and tight competition I was able to take the victory with 50 point margin.  Wink


Congratulations to Arto, Totte and Hannu, who gave me a really good competition! Cool

Next comp will be held after a month and I predict sunny weather and even more rigs on the line. Can't wait!  Smiley

It's been a long time without updates. Now though, we have driven the second round of Foff Cup 2016 in Lemi, Finland.


Completely new gravel pit to conquer! And lot's of new rigs to challenge.


Here you can see the whole lot. Wink


Ready to attack the first course.


Going smoothly so far. Grin


That was too much for Wanderer. And all of the rest too. Really technical approach might have done the trick, but sand was too loose to try it like that.


The finishing gate of course two. Yet again too steep to pass for me.  Shocked


On the fifth course I finally got one performance to the finishing gates!  Tongue


Rig was solid and my driving was consistant, but not too shiny.


This happened on the final course of the day. Really tricky courses made this competition insanely tight.  Grin

https://youtu.be/QRhlMkK4-W4
Here are my performances on video. You can see the difficulty of the vertical points right there.


After the battle, I was able to take yet another victory with Wanderer. The opponents are following really closely at the moment, so I have to keep my head up!  Cheesy


Here are the results. I also had couple of more rigs on the line to test something new. Maybe a future comp rig coming out of one of them.  Wink

Next comp will be driven next weekend, so I don't have too much time to prepare stuff. Hopefully my good driving continues in Laukaa. Cool

Aivan liian laiskasti on tullut päivitettyä topicceja, mutta tämäkin auto on sulautettu yhteen TNA:n kanssa ja näistä kahdesta syntyy ensi kauden kisaunli meikäläiselle. Tarinat jatkuu TNA:n topicissa.
