  6. Because of the covid situation i had decided to run 4 rounds in Athens but my plans failed: -The most interesting would be a brand new Policar track but the owner had to deal with serious(noncovid)health issues of one of his family members so i would not dare asking to run he race we had agreed -i could race solo a 3rd Ninco track, but racing 2 races solo proved quite exausting ,and one more Ninco track would not provide additonal information. Some comments: -the J _R motor seems more consistent than the BWA and my feeling is that the cars are more pleasent to drive with 1,5-2k of additional rpm.Exceptions --- (A)car #1 11280 rpm it is either a faulty motor or my tachometers error but especially on Creative Hobby track if felt slow on the long straight and --- (B) car #2 16762 rpm lucky you Kevan -it looks that gear ratio 9/24 is the way to go.The cars affected most by wrong ratio are 28,87,658,11,86,i have the feeling they could be fighting for podiums Below is a table showing scores after 2 races and car data.Please help me to fill the blanks.There could also be some mistake in pinion count ,please correct me,it wasnt easy counting teeth without removing which did not.Car 98 is missing pinion and crown data because it has a Policar gearbox and it is impossible to count without removal. Time to start packing. P.S. there a couple of cars we would like to keep permanently here but not his time: 21 and 87 for me and 5 for Nick

  9. And results Some comments -5 Daytona coupe loved the blue lane,it was the only one that scored over the 16 lap barrier -66 it was bottoming out and as tyre wear increased it became worse,I had push start on green and blue lane but when is deslotted the wheels were spinning in the air,thus the 0 score on white lane -18 as the race progressed the chainsaw noise became louder and louder indicating gear wear.I was lucky ii finished the race -the following cars would have scored better with a lower gearing:99-71-658-87-12 -98 very difficult to drive it deslotted many times -28 very good car but unexpected deslots is the catch -2 was the undisputed leader in front engine class -21 was the undisputed leader in slimline class Best Laps

  17. They look like urethanes but to be sure you should ask Dave West as i think he built both cars
  18. Race results and comments: Nick drove lanes black and blue and I drove yellow and red.Blue and red were the 2 inside lanes at the hairpin following downhill section which favored cars with good brakes: 658 ,the car that suffered most at the hairpin 111 good car 99 gearing seems wrong could use a higher ratio 98 a beauty but it got you by surprise and rolled 87 good car given the width and height excellent 86 needs a bit more attention to the front end could eliminate the offs 71 I dont think the sprung guide is a good idea 66 good car finished 12th in 2018 now 6th 40 too much body rock tyres rubbing the body 28 Alpine good car given the width and height excellent 28 Jaguar very good car but sideways braking gave 2 very costly deslots on straight line at the downhill section 27 good car but cound not beat 21 for slimlin class honors 21 I wish I could build chassislike this,if fited with a big motor it would be in a class of its own 20 the pinion slipped 3 times then I had to retire the car.The crown rotates out of round and I think this is the reason 19 needs attention to the front end ,it is the cause of so many offs 18 it was quite a surprise as I had not touched it after the 1000 laps test,it makes me consider making 1000 laps run in a standard procedure 15 hoping rear end needs attention 12 ery good car but sideways braking gave 2 very costly deslots on straight line at the downhill section 11 very good car 5 Lotus front end needs attention 5 Daytona,very good car,Nick loved it 2 Very smooth and considering front engine perfect 1 Very good car but I takes a couple of laps until you feel cnfident Results
