Schumacher Indoor Masters Rd2 report

See: Schumacher Racing

This past weekend was held the second round of the hugely popular Worksop Series, there was once again a huge entry of drivers across all classes of 2wd, 4wd, 2wd stadium truck and the vintage buggy class. As always it was round by round qualifying as the racing format, with the best 2 results from 4 rounds of qualifying counting towards the final position. The control tyre in the buggy classes is the Schumacher Yellow Honeycomb, this works superbly well at Worksop. The track layout was superb, it was a fast layout but there were also many jumps and features in the track which everyone enjoyed. As always a huge thanks go out to the fantastic Worksop track team for the hard work. They always manage to come up with a new layout with unique features included, which makes Worksop so popular with the racers.

Ruddog CA activator spray

The Ruddog CA activator spray is a cyanoacrylate accelerator spray for the use with all common cyanoacrylate-based super glues. The CA kicker greatly reduces the curing time of thick, thin and super thin glues, making it ideal when glueing on-road and off-road tyres. Simply use the glue as usual and apply a small layer of CA activator afterwards or use an indirect technique by spraying a small amount of CA kicker into a cup and putting the cup over the tyre – the latter can make for more aesthetically pleasing results depending on the glue used. The CA activator spray is available in 150ml spray cans from now on.
