    See this is what happens , I get accused of the car being a myth and it's all a wind up and that I'm full of it , So I then alow half the car to be seen so every one knows it is real it will race and I'll do my best , but then I do something good and then the new wheels was not on at the time that pic was taken ! I ain't being mardy or childish but now there will be no video no more pics no more of the long boring thread and no nec I mean it I have had enough so the people with the kind words and the genuinely interested all have to suffer and wait until next years first Lynn , If ya don't beleave me try and say anything you want on here and it will not get a reply , I'm done with it and no I see why this site don't get any top drivers posting !!!!!!! Sorry to all the Genuine people

    The car is very lait lol However the car is done and I'd like to take it to the nec either on the brisca stand or in the live arena , Even tho it has taken for ever to build and had some ups and downs along the way I can honestly say it's even better than I could have ever imagined it to be for looks ! How will it go ? God knows but can't wait to find out , Also there is a slide show video that will go online just prior to nec for the ones that don't go to nec so they can see it

    Well I have never met woodsy before untill tonight ! A last minute decision to go to the banger world final at Ipswich tonight and very glad we did ! My wife is very short and with a crowd bigger than iv ever seen at any race meeting my wife with with our 2 youg sons in a pram just could not see so ask an official how much it was for us to stand up in the sponsors stands ? She then called someone on the mike after me explaining the situation and then this guy turns up and she said dean and went on to explain so I said are you dean wood ? He said yes and so I explained that I race f1 etc and he said don't worry about going up there follow me ! We then followed him and he took us in to the main sponsors lounge (the best view on the atadium) and said here ya go and even helped us up with the push chair ! Never met the man before but all I can say what a top man and for me that's how promotors need to look after there own !!!! Roll on world final 2017 for in my opinion the best f1 tar track in the U.K. Is hosting it !!!!!

    Tony it was ment in the sence of how much drive they have and simply not needed all these realy wide axels but of course that is only my opinion mate

    Yes he did indeed , but engine swap is proberbly easier than changing everything around , for instance tar cars have a wider rear axal to have less body roll , but a stiffer Spring can do the same in my opinion , After all no car has more drive than a dragster and look how close there wheels are together ! The thing is I think it's down to personal preference but by making a rule for one car on both surfaces would just mean more work for every driver that done both surfaces and I am possative lap times would still be the same

    End of debate.

    Yes , however , there realy is not that much differance , In my opinion most would still have 2 cars any way just to not have to change shock positions and what not and as stated cars of the so called opposit surface have won races on many occasions , any one of the top boys in this game could change very little on there tar cars and win races on shale garanteed ,

    Well I can't help but have a crack at this one lol Make all cars weigh exactly 2 tons (ballast is not expensive) for one that would slow them down ! And also every one would go back to big blocks wich are cheaper than small blocks so every one is a winner , Problem solved A wile back last year or year before my old mate joff Gibson on British day won 4 out of 5 races at nir in a shale car ! Tom is now proving a tar car is also capable of winning on shale ! Having said that it's more likely that a tar car will go well on shale than a shale car will on tar ! So with that said any one that wants to get in to f1 and do both surfaces at a competitive level buy or build a tar car ! You may say tar cars are not built for the loos stuff but with just 150kg in the differance from min weight to max is not so huge a differance when they weigh so heavy to start with and nowadays almost all cars tar and shale are close to the minimum weight ! Yes engines are further back in shale cars but from a tar car to a shale cars rear weight is in some cases nothing and in some would be no more than 3% more than a tar car , yes you read that right just 3% on. A car that weighs around 1350kg and if that 3 % makes that much differance well I have no idea after I no for a fact more than one very hi end drivers who struggle for that minimum 55% rear on shale , I think some people are under the illusion that these so called shale cars run extream amounts of rear weight when it's just not true , Moving An engine back 7 inches would maybe gain you 2% more rear as the engine is up near the middle of the car
