Yes, I know, it might be a bit too early for a retrospective on the year 2013 but I felt like looking back and sharing some thoughts on the year with my internet friends. 2013 has been another big year for TWS, maybe not from a competition point of view but certainly on other aspects. Let me tell you a bit more about our/my year after the jump.
France’s major RC Drift competition Grip Zero was so good last year, Bop and I decided to go to Roanne again a few weeks ago. A 1000km trip awaited us on friday morning and Bop and I were ready to hit the road in Bop’s tiny Mazda. With a year of practicing packing light, we even had space left in the car. We were on our way for yet another awesome weekend in France!
Recently I’ve been selling off a big part of my collection. I’ve sold my buggy, a bunch of bodyshells and a lot of other stuff. This meant I had room left in the budget for a new car, and I knew exactly what I wanted. The new 3Racing Sakura D3! Here’s a build report on it, but beware.. Its a bit different than you might think!
Autumn. Winter. Spring. Winter. Autumn. That describes the weather we had in the beginning of January. When it wasn’t raining it was snowing and from time to time it would just be dry. The weather didn’t know what to but we at TWS did know what we wanted to do. Some weeks earlier Tijs and myself had gotten an invitation to drive a demo at the annual DHI Cup in Odense, Denmark. Long time friend Niklas Majgaard lives there and he had asked us to come over and stay at his place, and with the nighttrain being cheaper than a tank of petrol, it was quite and easy descision!

Its time for another product review. A brand new servo manufacturer was kind enough to send me one of their new brushless low profile servo’s a few weeks ago, the RC OMG HDT045070B. I’ve been using it in my competition drift car since then to give it a proper test. Read my test results after the jump.
