A few months, with the Euro’s coming up and none of us even started with our new team bodyshells I got a message from Team Tetsujin, who offered me their new GRS20 Crown Athlete bodyshell as a gift. Great! Thanks Mizunaga-san and Ando-san! I wanted to have the Crown finished quick, so I could show it at the Euro’s. Unfortunatly I didn’t have enough time to finish it, but now julietta in canada it is done and I really like it! I hope you like it to, enjoy the pictures after the jump.
With the 2014 Euro’s closer than the 2013, this is more of a retrospective post. Anyway, this is the bodyshell I build for the Euro’s last year. It is a HPI Scion FR-S with TopLine wheels. I did not go all out, as I did not have that much time, but I surprised myself at how good the result was!
A LOT more pictures, and a full list of all the parts I’ve used after the jump.
After exactly a month I hereby present the report on day 2 AND 3 of the Euro’s. After the practice day on Friday, Saturday would mark the first qualifying day. Every driver had 3 runs, 1 practice and 2 judged runs. This would repeat itself on Sunday, so in the end everyone had done 4 judged runs.

Teambattles, bad luck and another podium finish. That is how Tijs described the 6th and final round of the D1:10 RC drift competition of 2011, and that sort of summarizes the day for Team Wreck it Sideways. With 32 entries and over 10 different scenario’s about who was going to be in the final top 5 of 2011, we knew we were in for a long and interesting day!

Teambattles, bad luck and another podium finish. It basicly sums up the day for TWS at the 6th and final round of the 2011 D1:10 championship.
Another new venue added to the list for 2011. This time it was at Beachclub Y-land in Spijkenisse, NL, using the concrete part of the dancefloor for the track and the podium as a driversstand.
Bop had a bad day with mechanical gremlins keeping him from setting a qualifying score and also costing him his first battle of the day. All this bad luck didn’t go unnoticed though and it landed him the bad-luck trophy. I managed to score another podium finish for TWS, but unfortunatly that meant kicking both Edo and Ricardo out of the competition.
Tijs – 3rd place
Edo – 4th place
Ricardo – Top16
Reinier – Top16
Bop – Somewhere at the bottom
Full report coming soon!
