Bear at work on the red car, yesterday.
REPAIRS UNDERWAY, AND LEZZER JOINS THE SPACE PROGRAM....
PROJECT X POSTPONED
We're too busy at the minute. It's a stripped shell, and we're thinking about it, but all the experiments these days are still going on the red car, so more on this car later.
The X300 project is similar to Project X. A stripped shell awaits our time and budget. We have no budget. Maybe late next year? Those saloons need taming, we want to go and play with Rich Dorlin. That sounded kinda dirty.
RED vs BLUE
Post Mallory we've been digging into the serious woes afflicting both cars. Red was understeering like a dog on a laminate floor, blue was oversteering as if Lyddall was driving and had absolutely no pace.
Although the Bear won that race quite easily, it was not the hopeless whitewash it should have been, and the class D victory was not at all convincing.
Fortunately, we have found out why. Red had a broken front subframe, and the wrong dampers. Blue had a bust diff.
Both are now repaired, and we return to Mallory in a week or so to find out how fast we should have been.
You may have heard stories of our most camp team-member, Lyddall, he of the hair product and MR2, being involved in a monumental accident in an Atom recently. Though absolutely true he was never in any danger as the hair gel he wears is every bit as effective as a helmet. There is no truth in the rumour that this was the view from the car shortly afterwards....
We continue, relentlessly, to wish you a Happy Christmas.
