  1. best config for magnet traction:).
  2. should i read 2022 on this post now?
  3. i still dream of slot it completing their DTM classic with the btcc 1995 cars ...each brand was there at the time and the size of the car are equivalent to the DTM they picked!
  4. agree, i love these proxies as i have no track on my own. The club here are multiple (at least around 50 wood routed tracks in ADELAIDE!!!!) but the proxies allow me to work on car which are not part of the usual scenery here. the touring with a clio nsr is awesome as i love the 1:1 car and cannot race it in a proxy here (i found a way to have a megane r26 ninco body on a printed chassis with all slot it gears to compete in the slot it DTM, i almost had to sale a kidney for it!). I know the clio is not the most optimum car for the serie and want to offer my apology to the drivers, but at the same time, i feel that few of us are focusing in proxy to provide the car which is different. Note: i did the WRP and loved it with my SCX and Nico citroen Loeb, but the newest classic rally could not let me race a french car (the pug came inline and they restricted to sidewinder and scalextric) so i had to refuse to participate! But the track they raced on was amazing in Europe!!!! I remember an hill climb track with a full village scenery OMG! Almost as good as the white lake track i visited in Michigan.
  5. the ratlting on my car is due to the type of front tyres i used... very noisy.
  6. it looks like once you find the limit, the car is good to drive, but still very slow in PB compare to some others.
  7. thanks for the video... great to see the clio in action. It looks very tail happy compare to when i used it on our local tracks. let see if it gets better over time. The car had a big off but then it was getting good laps i thought. any feedback from the drivers?
  8. to be honest, if you test the brm 23k on any magnet track, you do see that it is strong... like very very strong. I was worry about the NSR motor but even without any tool i thought the magnet traction was 1/4 of the brm. to be honest, i love more and more the use of one motor for a class with fix gearing and let the people tune their car. I know few of you are against it, but it helps to get very close racing and to have the driver experiencing similar speed from one car to the other. But this is a discussion for another day :), for now, let s race. Happy to see the race starting again, in fact in my club i got the opposite, we stopped for few weeks and because i am an intermittent to slotcar, my performance relative tot he other went up :). I hope you are all safe in Canbera and thanks for running it. still need to see the video to have a good laugh).
  9. So sad with my clio result... i thought i improved but it is going backward.
  10. oh yes, pressure is building up in the carburators, and we are ready to race... looking forward to some video footage... stay safe and race to the max any chance to put the french cars together, i think we have few clio nsr.
  11. if his package is parked in a post office, it may be months to get to Oz!
  12. disappointed with the first test result... i was hoping to see the clio higher in the ranking but from 2.26 onward the cars look to be close enough. well, let see after the first run as i did build it to be easy to drive. The noise is coming from the from zero grip tires, no worry on my side.
  13. when do we expect to start? how many cars missing?
  14. well done guys... John was a legend in Adelaide. We had him on TV few years back and on newspaper slot car endurance race article 25y ago. I still miss my friend, i would not be Australian now without his amazing welcome 9y ago.
  15. happy to have my car dissected in this section now that you have it
  16. just because i made a comment about english language, it looks like i was not selected for the run down :)... all good, joking here.
  17. now, being french leaving in an English speaking country, this one is a first??? i do need a translation :).
  18. ok, now, let see if it is a better car than last year:), and more important, let see if i start with no penalties
  19. Last year i was the car with the most penalties... shame does not kill, but i am trying to have none this year... we shall see.
  20. ok guys, stay safe. here we have 5 cases and we go to lock down... and you know what, i am ok with it.
