RMR 2018 was very good to use.

Car handles very well and Driver and Co driver kept it very consistent through the whole event

This long Weekend was Rally Baie Des Chaleur out in New Richmond, Qu├ębec

The weekend had a lot of weather challenges, Rain , Fog , Screaming sun , then rain again.

This was the Deput of the Feista R1.75 T that was just built in time for this event at Team Oneil





 
Last minute tire mounting luckily the dealership was rally friendly and allowed us to use their machine



we are very happy to continue using awesome GULF products on the Car



Night service area










This event was tough on the cars 40 entered and 18 finished



1st 2wd overall

WOW!  So much air!  Why is your car the only dirty one?  You're looking good!

When we drove from Calgary we didn't pack a pressure washer and water tank like some of the teams who washed their cars at the service before the finish.

Hoping to find a video of the car as i am excited to see how far  out from the jump it lands

Hopefully get some test days in before hand.

As of right now we are just re prepping the car for DEFi.

List includes
Rebuild both sets of suspension
New axles
New tie rod ends
New wheel bearing.

nothing crazy the worst part is trying to wash it after all the mud

Sorry been a while time to post some updates .

We had a great time at Cochrane rally finishing 1st in 2wd and 6th overall which is pretty descent for a NA 2wd car





RMR Prep

New Wheels so we can bring more tire options as well as some new carbon Kevlar gravel protection for the car

We had a great weekend at RMR even managed to podium with gear missing since saturday

We lost 3rd mid morning and found it in some fluid changes so the driver had to skip from 2 to 4th which made for some interesting in car footage
