Hi.
Other than the need to use the Silvercan I see you have we do have rather expensive carpet and therefore please don't have any sharp edges around the chassis or bodywork.
Also the screws in the bottom of the chassis need to be countersunk and sit flush if they are not already.

See you Sunday.

Shawn has made a very valid point there. When Dave Penfold and Steve Davis visited before Christmas they were possibly the first Mardave's to run on our carpet and did bring the cars to race control to show us how they had obviously taken time and trouble to countersink all the screws in the bottom of the chassis. This is VERY important in order to keep the carpet in as good a condition as possible so we will need to inspect cars quickly to check.
