  1. Your car rattled and shook when I put the power down in corners.

    My driving style is max brakes coming into a corner then slowly apply the power (in the corner) and watch the car so the tail doesn't come out too far. Even with applying power smoothly (straight after breaking into the corner) your car would make a rattling sound and act like it wasn't happy. Most noticeable in the tight hairpin.

    It's on my to-do-list to check if anything has come loose.

    Cheers

  7. Put the car on the track, lift the rear tyres so they don't touch and rev it, then lift the car out of the slot. Note how long it takes for the wheels to stop turning.

    Put the car back, wheels up again. Rev it but instead of taking the car out of the slot, put your finger on both rails (as you back off the throttle so there's no power going to the track).

    Try it with a wet finger and you'll see the motor stops quicker.

    Now stick your tongue on both rails as you back off the throttle and see how quick the motor stops.

    When you pick yourself up off the floor you'll notice that (amongst other things) even though there was no power going to the track your tongue felt like it was stuck to the southern end of a northbound Jumbo jet with the afterburners turned on. That's because a turning electric motor generates electricity which was transferred to your tongue. What your tongue did is create a short circuit, sucking out what little electricity was being generated by the motor. The better the material to create the short the faster the electric motor stops when the throttle is backed right off. 

    Actually there was no need to use your tongue but you're over 2000 miles away and don't know where I live. :D

  8. Sorry guys, I've been busy with a few things in real life.

    Now that the covid restrictions have eased I was finally able to drive down with my boys to spend some time with my wife who's working in Melbourne 800 ks away. We haven't seen her in 2 months and she's much more important than racing toy cars. 

    Our cars are quick because we're racing on our home ground. We have tested our cars on these tracks but they still aren't as quick as Radarek's cars which dominated this proxy for the first 2 years, and he's never seen our tracks.

    If someone wants to run a similar proxy on their local tracks I'll be the first to build a car and send it and because it's only a toy car I won't care about who builds a better car that suits their local tracks. That's what proxy racing is all about, you build a car as best as you can and compare it against other builders. And you learn a little bit more each year. There will always be cars faster and some that are slower but they are still only toy cars.

    If anyone wants to withdraw let me know and I'll get their car in the post.

    Next round will be next weekend.

    Cheers

    Paul

    Funny guy Sports Racer - - - planning to do all your driving with that above ? :lol:

    I have lots of controllers including a few electronic ones but the Frankenstein is my favourite. 

    It may look strange but I use it for all the tracks I race on and all the cars I have.
