  1. A little bit of "fun facts" Right after running the 3rd stage in my event I ran both my Porsche 959 from the CRP09 season and the Porsche 911SC that won the previous Down Under Rally just to check how the laptimes compared to this years contenders. Here is the CRP11 results from stage 3 sorted by time: Car - Total time - fastlap - deslots: SCX Porsche 959 - 2:21,760 - 6,730 - 2 SCX Porsche 911SC - 2:09,43 - 6,330 - 0 My old CRP Porsche 959 would barely have made it into the top 5, so this years top cars seem to be a bit faster than last season. The 911SC is running on good old Ortmann tires so I expected it to be faster, just wanted to show the difference between a good car on some of the best tires VS the CRP cars that run on stock SCX rubber. The 911SC was over 10 seconds faster than any of the CRP cars on that stage, and it's only using a RX-42B motor VS the PRO motors in the CRP Class-3 cars, so this show the difference in grip level and maybe an explanation to why the 4WD cars did quite well during the CRP series.

  2. The main error was in the published scores for event 10 where stage times and car numbers was mixed up, probably due to a sort order error when copying data from one sheet to another. So the results from Event 10 has been updated in the score thread. Then, because of the score mix up in event 10 the error followed the accumulated series standing sheet for event 10, 11 and 12. Those sheets have also been fixed now. So the series standing sheets in the official score thread is also updated, and the final event had also been posted there: http://www.scxworldw...?showtopic=4477 The error in event 10 was unfortunately big enough to mix up the final scoring order for some, so if someone dropped down a few spots now I'm sorry for that, but these are the real results and not the results based on the XLS error. I'd also like to mention that making and publishing these sheets are very time consuming, just to go over the last 3 events to find the error and re-publish the new sheets took me over 2 hours, so if you feel there is another error somewhere, please be very specific about where the error might be. This is the corrected series standing sheet: PDF version: http://www.slotforum.com/forums/index.php?act=attach&type=post&id=9098 I have a lot of pictures and some raw video from the event, but I've been tied up with work the most of this week and I'm leaving for a weekend trip tomorrow, so I'll have to publish that next week. I will also start to ship the cars home next week, so please let me know if there are cars that can be shipped together. I already have some prizes here but it will take some time before all the prizes are ready to be shipped out, so I will start an own "prize" thread later. Tore
  3. SCX Classic Rally Proxy series 2011 Rally Norway FINAL Final result after 3 stages Congratulations to Teamred, Jexy1 and Kidvoltage with the respective class victories, and again Teamred took the overall event title and may be addressed as the king og Norway, at least for a couple days Pictures from the event will be posted soon, but before that let's take a look at the final series scoreboard: SCX Classic Rally Proxy series 2011 FINAL SCOREBOARD I'll post the top-list with pictures in the score thread later, but for now: Congratulations to Gazza, Ontheflipside and Kidvoltage, you WON the whole seires in your respective class! :drive: Tore
  4. STAGE-3 Results: Sorted by time Sorted by class Congrats to Kidvoltage, Scott & Teamred with the stage win in their respective classes, and a double congratulations to Teamred who also took the overall stage win with his Porsche 959. The event results will follow shortly... Tore
  5. Stage-3 Preview Presentation of stage-3. Stage-3 will run on track-1 (same track as Stage-1) but in the opposite direction using the inner lane, which makes it very different to drive compared to stage-1. The inner lane has tighter turns and in the opposite direction it gives us a challenging dip at the end of the straight where the fast cars will catch air into the braking zone. The hairpin is very tight and will be taken "downhill", so the ability to drift will be crucial. As the video show it will be a bumpy ride http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JH3Ot2qWr-o The track is being prepared and the voltage will most likely be set at 12 volts. Will return with a schedule later.
  6. A little video from stage-2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ns4eEZEp82U Note! Best viewed at 480p Will post more video and pics later... Tore
  7. STAGE-2 Comments and statistics: Sorted by class, then stage time PDF version: http://www.scxworldwide.com/ipb/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=781 Event time and score sheet after stage-2 Sorted by total time after 1 stage PDF version: http://www.scxworldwide.com/ipb/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=782 Congrats to the stage winners in each class, and Gazza who took the overall stage win. It looks as the last stage will be run this coming weekend, but if I get time to do it earlier I will try to post a notice as soon as possible. Tore
  8. Stage-2 is starting NOW! Stage-2 is 10 laps on the new rally-loop (approx. 3 min per car) at 12 Volt using a Professor Motor diode controller (modified sensitivity) and the SCX Rally Chrono Pack. This stage is a lot tougher than stage-1, with sharp turns, rough surface, grass sections and a very difficult off camber turn. Results will be posted "live" here: http://www.scxworldwide.com/ipb/index.php?showtopic=4693&view=findpost&p=51253
  9. SCX Classic Rally Proxy series 2011 Stage-1 results Track-1: 25 laps, outer lane, Counter Clockwise, 12v (7 amp) Controller: Slot.it SCP-1 Timer: Ninco N-scorer (light-bridge) After the shakedown test last weekend cars that needed repairs got fixed during the week. Then at stage-1 each car got a tire cleaning (spinning wheels on a wet rag) and a couple warm-up laps to get some heat in the motors and let me adjust the controller to each car before it ran the stage. The overall grip level on the track was very good throughout the stage, so a few cars became top heavy, but most of the cars did very well and even broke their fastlap times from the shakedown test during the stage. STAGE-1 Comments and statistics: Sorted by class, then stage time PDF Version: http://www.scxworldwide.com/ipb/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=780 Event time and score sheet after stage-1 Sorted by total time after 1 stage PDF Version: http://www.scxworldwide.com/ipb/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=779 Read and analyze BTW: How do you like the "consistency percentage"? Quite fun to see that the calculated percentage seems to reflect the comments i wrote during the stage. But what does this percentage really tell us? the short answer is the consistency of that car on that track driven by me, but could it tell us more, like the "hidden" potential in a car? Tore
  10. The first stage is running now! Results will be posted as the stage progress here: http://www.scxworldwide.com/ipb/index.php?showtopic=4693&st=0#entry51241 Then a summary will be posted here on auslot after the first stage is done. Tore
  11. SCX Classic Rally Proxy series 2011 Shakedown test Results and comments from the 5 lap shakedown test on track-1 Note that this is just a test, the results do NOT count in the event PDF version of the sheet: http://www.slotforum.com/forums/index.php?act=attach&type=post&id=9027 ----- About the tracks: Track-1 is a flowing road style track that has a higher average speed than track-2. Preview of track-1 ("pace car" at low speed): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMcgGKAx53g Track-2 is tighter than track-1 and is rally loop using both lanes as one continuous lane with the SCX Rally Chrono Pack. Preview of track-2 ("pace car" at low speed, 7.5v): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJA7-ZKGH8w ----- Repairs: A couple cars needs repairs before I can test them: Car #10 - Mr.M - Escort MKII The weight was loose inside the car, please confirm if this is the correct placement before I glue it in place: Car #17 - Col de Turini - Lancia 037 The rear bushing holder on the right side was broken. I will try to repair it with epoxy and styrene or wood before the event starts. The cars are very dirty after competing around the world for almost a year Any questions or speculations? Tore
  12. A quick update: All the cars are getting service and a shakedown run today. The service includes: - Visual inspection - Braid cleaning with WD40 and a small wire brush. - Lubrication of all gears and bushings with Super Lube. - 5 second tire polish on sandpaper to clean of old junk - Tire cleaning on a wet rag (water) Then the cars get one warm-up lap on the main track to allow me to adjust the controller (Slot.it SCP-1), followed by a 5 lap timed session at 12 volt, where the fastest laptime is recorded. I am about halfway through the field right now, but at least 4 cars needs repairs before the event, 2 of them are not drivable at the moment, but will be fixed. I'll report back later today with the "qualifying" laptimes and comments on each car when the shakedown test is done. Tore
  13. SCX Classic Rally Proxy 2011 Final (Round 12) Rally Norway Welcome to the final event of the SCX CRP11 season, Rally Norway! A long tough season is about to come to an end, and before arriving at the final the cars have competed through 11 events in 7 countries around the world. The cars have some battle-scars so they will get a thorough inspection before we start. While you wait for the results from the tech inspection enjoy some good footage and sound from the real Rally Norway: Stay tuned Tore
  14. Getting into a new "project" often help. Just an idea, but what about making a grid of "IROC" cars for the race meetings?
  15. SCX Classic Rally Proxy series 2011 Round 11 - Rally Denmark Stage-3: The nightstage Official results for Rally Denmark (after 3 stages) Congrats to Gazza, Jexy1 and the Wolves team for the first place in each class! The next event is in Norway and that will be the final, with 3 stages on 2 different tracks, including the one I am just about to finish building: http://www.slotforum.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=56988 NOTE: I've just been in contact with Lars and there has been a slight shipping delay from Denmark, so the cars are now expected to arrive during next week. Hope to get started on the final event next weekend, but I will have to return with accurate dates when I receive the package. Tore
