You've used regular 12gr Hurda bodies.
We have 3-4gr alternative light bodies also which are not on the market yet. Imagine another 10% total weight reduction in the car.

Even the with the same weight due to a total weight rule; think of carrying a weight over your head or in your shoe.

Thanks for everyone participating in this event and we hope you've had good time.

Thanks for your comments Wolf and to TGR for their sponsorship of this event. I can safely say we all had a great time and Ben Tunks is now enjoying his Sinister setup

Let me know if you need anything extra other than what we discussed.

Jonny

A big thanks to Wolf & TGR for giving us the opportunity to participate in this event and for providing the prizes - a great day was had by all! Congrats to Jonny and Matt for being great hosts.

@ MK2 - There's nothing wrong with a bit of male bonding every now and again - you have every right to be proud of him - he was ace

Hey people, its Big Ben here sorry i took time to reply i just got set up.
Thankyou for your congratulation. I was thrilled just to win a race but then to win the tournament with top prize.
There were people that in other race conditions would have kicked my butt but the hurda shells we were using were so stable and the fact i had a midmounted engine i had a great centre of gravity. It allowed me to feather the throttle like an F1 car to keep a tight corner.
It was extremely difficult. I think Nobby had few probs with his car which played to my advantage a little. I think heat 2 i just scraped through to beat BMW EVO for third place but after that i amazed myself. I somehow managed to keep lead most of the time especially in the final but because i was quite far ahead i felt unusually comfortable. You know what its like when you are leading a tight 1st & 2nd place battle and you wipe out under the pressure, i was lucky enough not to be there. I couldnt believe i won. My brother MK2 Kompressor is my mechanic until i completely learn my stuff, I need to throw my car at the wall and put it back together to really be good. I get that racing driver thrill when i race its cool. Probably why i play so many racing ps games. Im gonna tell the mrs im going away for few days when GT5 comes out for ps3. I want my miniZ racing to be like prostreet - drift, grip, drag, top speed run cars. Just need time.......
