Thought I'd share with this mob over here.
In the last weekend of October we raced at Loveday 4x4 Riverland Challenge again. This time with the new wagon. Had some issues here and there but at the end of Sunday we ended up at the top of our class in 1st position.

Here are some photos and videos. I won't bother copying the whole report, you can see that over on the other forum.

We had a great time. Going to rebuild the front end a bit as the radiator ended up 3mm away from the crank pulley....

Just be prepared to replace a lot of parts. After every heat (1 heat = 3km lap) we had damage which needed repairing. We ended up bending 7 struts, popping a ball joint apart, pulling a driveshaft (axle) apart.

We also had to strip the carb down after the first race because the secondary was rusted shut. Ended up taking the carb off and pulling it down into three parts to get the butterfly lose again.

All good fun though!
