    Some external video of the car.
    Last segment has the car accelerate, and you can hear us pick 4th.
    Sounds very nice on full song.

    Fridays Media day.
    Broke a driveshaft. Got left out in Kowen to change it. They locked they forest on me.

    Saturday.
    Broke a rear shock when the rear beam crushed the remote canister into the underside of the car.
    Found this at frist service after completing mornings stages. As we had completed more tha 50% of day, were given penalty time and allowed to start Sunday.

    Sunday
    Gearbox popping out of gear. Tooth on 3rd broke off, trapped itself between box casing and input shaft, and penetrated casing and snapping the primary shaft.
    Event over after 6.5 kilometres.

    We finished an event.

    After having a shocker in Canberra where we broke the input shaft and an MCA shock, we actually crossed the line.

    Finished first in class, 4th outright and I think 4th 2wd. Some quick Datsuns out there.

    New factory box with H pattern took some getting used to, and we missed a few gears, but it went well.

    Will look over car in coming weeks.
    Fix hole in flex joint, look at sticky pistons in the front calipers and change all fluids.

    Other than that, looking forward to the SA round of the ARC.
    See if I can knock off that pesky RX7 of Mr Kaplan.

    Great build as everyone has said!

    Will you be going back to the sequential once fixed/sorted or sticking with the H pattern now?

    Stick with H pattern for now until we get a little bit more seat time.
    Easier to replace factory box than the sequential in this trial period.

    Tractive or PAR look like good options for future use.
