    Argh! Finished the job, went to put the wheels on, discovered the hubs are back to front (left hand axle in right hand upright and vice versa).

    Its all got to be dismantled and uprights back to the engineers to be swapped over and bearing preload setup again.

    Fuchsing fuchity fuch.

    Double bugger! I know the feeling of putting a large job back together, only to find part number 4 of 235 to be sitting on the workbench.

    Normally I wouldn't comment, but since you delight in doing it I thought I'd reciprocate in kind.

    I've never left my watch in a patient. But, I can say from personal experience, that there is only one thing worse than rebuilding a mini engine and forgetting to put the little O ring between the block and the gearbox.

    I've received an email invitation to a track day to be held at night.

    That is laps under lights.

    Anyone here any experience with this?

    Looking for sensible insights. For once.

    I’m sure Moretti’s had a few lappies under low lighting

    I have done it, both circuit stuff as well as rally stages. The rally ones were special stages run on lit arenas etc.

    I really struggled with it to tell you the truth. No matter how good the car lights or circuit lights are, it is nothing like daylight! Where I really struggled was with depth perception, judging braking points and distances etc. Getting the lines and apexes was not such a problem. Some people seem to adapt to it well, others not so well.

    The experience was a lot of fun though. My advice would be to start off at a much slower pace than you normally would, and work up to it.

    Oh, another thing, some of the photos I have of my cars at night are really great. I have literally thousands of photos of my cars competing over the years, and you get a bit blase with them. Some of the night ones turned out really well though.

    Thank you.

    I'm not prone to running off track, however I certainly wouldn't want to get on to dewy grass.

    As for starting off slow, I know the track well and I don't think I would be able to stop myself.
