  1. Most of the tracks down here have 1945 IRs as Emitters, so not sure why your flouro was causing a problem unless people move past the Fluro casting shadows, but glad it is sorted.
  2. I have o lt seen one set of MJK’s go to gel, and they had been hot, seems they last longer than the softer tyres.
  3. Dave All Eurethanes will turn red and fall apart over time. Heat reduces the life of Eurethane tyres. I keep my new tyres in dark cool place. The softer the shorter life.
  4. Many tracks allow tyres to be treated. we are of course talking about Rubber tyres. 3in one oil usually works as well as anything else, WD40 will,also work. The petroleum based products actually soften the rubber,,but it should be applied and worked in to the tyres. Plenty of guides on Forums and YouTube if you look around.
  5. I fitted the capacitors between across the braid near the lap sensors, simply because there were power connectors there. I think some PCs seem more sensitive to this than others. Another problem I have had is with people using a controller with full power relays, but fitting a diode across the coil of the relay fixed that.
  6. Two suggestions Try a small capacitor across each lane, the ones off Scalex motors usually work well. If thst does not fix the problem try the grounds should be kept seperate right back to the board. Your set up is the same components that I have been using for 20 years.Had the same problem on one track and the capacitors fixed it. The other track required both the above Phil
  7. Tank I apologize if I have offended you.I certainly did not mean to. I only commented on the limited information that was on this thread. You obviously have plenty of experience with RC. I will not comment on this thread anymore.
  8. IF you use the Ramdomize option in RC you will find that it does not actually Ramdomize. Depending on the entrants. it will come back to the same order every few times it is done. You are better off doing it manually using a form of spread sheet.
  9. I agree with Bov, the actual winner of this proxy may infact do less total laps than other entrants. RC has a couple of issues when trying to sort cars on the same laps. This problem can only be sorted IF you had multiple sensors around the track.
  10. As an outsider, but with plenty of experience with Race Coordinator there is something wrong with your race setup, usually the laps and score are the same. RC allocates positions for cars on the same laps based only on the last lap completed before the power cut. So sometimes a car can actually be in front but because it’s last lap was slow it is shown behind a car with a faster last lap. That is why it is always important to check actual positions on the track at the finish of a race. As an example our racing this week had 3 cars on the same lap score at the end of racing, But the car that was in from was shown to the the third car simply because he had a slow last lap. Phil
  11. Dave has done some great setup guides over the years. While I do not use a lot of the features, I have been using it since Dave released the first version.
  12. All the info and step by step guides are provided with RC. To set up races etc use the drop down menu along the top. Each menu has Basic guided set ups or wizard for track set up. Once you become familiar then you can progress to intermediate or expert Setups. We don’t know if Binga is using Ardunio,Trackmate or some other interface.
  13. You need to tell us a bit more. What interface board are you using,. Serial or USB connection. What sensors are you using. light emitting diodes are only to provide light above the sensors.
  14. Syd Where is the plug wiring diagram? From memory looking at the Back of the plug Positive feed to RH pin, feed out to track LH and Round earth is brake. I think NSW is the same as SA which is different pinout.
  15. Gazza Check on that,I have had controllers from Syd down here and I don’t remember changing things. Or maybe I am just loosing my memories.
  16. https://www.viasue.com/ Check what they offer.Not sure what interface they use. I setup my own Ardunio Systems.
  17. Looks like price will be close to $200 AUD, I think a piece of steel and use a hot plate would no the same If you don’t like the old hot water trick.
  18. He has also done a very nice 300s , That I printed recently for a mate in 1/24th
  19. Why are the tyres allowed outside the body by 1mm? Should they not be inside the body or level with the body sides? Does this mean tyres will be posted out to entrants or fitted when the cars arrive?
  20. I know Vlad has listed it as a TR but I am informed by a very learned source that it is actually a Monza.
  21. My grand daughters Lola went very well in the Tasman series a few years ago. She certainly showed up us guys!
  22. If my old brain is working correctly 20 +120 +120 in parallel would give 15 ohms Adding the 60 in parallel gives 12 ohms
  23. Mark I was only talking about the first NZ Proxy that you ran and I entered. It seems like decades ago If you decide to revisit the dreaded Legends Proxy I would be interested, no one here wants to race them.
  24. This is the first year in 22 years that I have not hosted a Proxy event of some sort. As Gazza mentioned, costs and delays in postal services are part to blame, but I think all the lock downs and limited club racing changed peoples outlook on what was important. Things here are starting to get back to normal, but slowly. Maybe the answer is for some more localized proxy events so postal costs and delays can be limited. We used to run local proxy’s here using all the local tracks, but we are now down to only 3 local tracks for club racing.
