Hi Guys
Finally started this round of the Proxy.Had to move holidays around a bit to fit in so here is the first stage. Gazza and I will start the next stage as soon as I finish putting up this round.The track came up well as we 've had a few cold days and was surprised with the grip with some of the cars. Anthony's Stratos ,Lancia B's BMW were cars that grip level just didn't come together. Mels Alpine ran well but just wanted to create it's own track thus the amount of offs (sorry Mel) :) Will try and do better in the next one.
Gazza will do a video on each of the stages as well and I will post them all together at the end of the round . Unfortunatley I don't have internet in the garage so there wont be any live stream ,sorry.
Congats to the podium winners Anthony ,that Delta runs well ,Mel ,that Seat is a class car .As for mine, for a car that was set up on Gazza's track ,I was surprised . John Schoen's Ford looks good at this stage as well and I'm worried :) . Tore the Abarth isnt on the top half but it is a fun little car to drive (didnt finish last :) )

Here's a few pics as well

I'll have a bit to eat and will get on with the next one. Will put the next one up hopefully tomorrow morning OZ time. Apologies as this round of the Proxy won't be anything like Ontheflipsides De Mills video epic.
Cheers Craig

Nice to see some action again. :D Mel's Alpine must have had an off-day, it is very unusual to see it that far down the listing.

Thanks Craig. Good to see the CRP on again and great to see the Delta doing so well. Interestingly this car is an almost identical set up to the Peugeot I ran in last year's rally proxy here apart from the fact the Delta has SCX pro tyres and the Peugeot was a dog!. The Stratos is on very old SCX tyres, the only ones I could find that fit, obviously not the best. Looking forward to the remaining stages.

Thanks guys ,yeah Mels was a surprise to me as well as I drove it on his track and thought it ran well. Difference in tracks ,hopefully it will pick up on stage 2 which I'll run in about an hour. It was quite cool in the garage last night so thought I'd run it in the warmth. Anthony ,I found that almost any 2 cars Ive set up identical have never run the same . The Peugeot I had in one of the first rally proxys had run quite well so the the next one was the same make peugeot but different livery ,set it up the same thinking it would perform the same and surprise surprise ,same as yours ,ran like a dog. Conclusion ,set up entirely different.That Delta of yours does run well. I was a fan of all the rally Lancia's they bought out in both Scaley and SCX. Oh well out to the garage and do a clean up of braids and tyres and off we go again ,kiss the wife and kids goodbye for the weekend. :D
Cheers Craig

Well finally getting to put Stage 2 up .Finished yesterday (Sat/15th for O/S viewers) went to put up results and Photo bucket decided to play up. Not all pics and spead sheets were coming up ,so called it night and went slotting with the SWSRG boys .Anyway heres the results.
Firstly a pic of the second stage set-up. 1st stage was 15mtrs long , this 2nd stage section added gave a total length of 26mtrs of twists and turns .Which tested the cars once more.

Now for some of the race pics

Posted Image
Tores Abarth wasn't the quickest but also didnt mind the extra twists
Posted Image
Mels Alpine soon found its feet ,slowly moving up the rankings
Posted Image
Malatwolves GTO negotiating the tree to the extent that they would bend to get out of his way.
Posted Image
We certainly get a diverse crowd here out in the burbs
Posted Image
Man , the Escort of Hbr245b (gotta find out what thats code for :D ) has to be moving just look at the trees in the back ground
By the way the Escorts were also a fun little car to drive.
Ok Gazza should be here soon so I'll start the last stage ASAP and hopefully have the out come tonight or tomorrow night the latest if Photo Bucket doesn't have one of it's moments.
Cheers Craig

Here is the Outcome

Class Wins were
Class 1
1st Chuck Ehredt / 79 / Fiat 124 Spyder

2nd Reek / 22/ Ferrari GTO
3rd PeteN95 / 13/ Renault 5
Class 3
1st Teamredracing /99 /Porsche 959

3rd Speedster /186 / Porcshe 959

Overall winners of this round
1st Teamredracing 959 Porsche
2nd Anthony Lancia Delta S4
3rd OTFS Fiat 131 Abarth

Congats to all to all the podium winners . I will post the pics of the podiums tomorrow and hopefully the vids of the 3 stages.
I haven't commented on most of the cars ,but it was a pleasure to have driven them and I was quite surprised that most of them handled the one corner on my track I thought they would get hung up on which on the top pic was near the left side of that small cream coloured extension where it comes to a point . I'd like to say that lap records fell but the only one to take one was Anthony on stage 1 with a 8.581. Mel came close but the record for the hole 3 extensions still remains a 20 sec lap from the Aussie Proxy Rally which is held by Smallnails but driven by me :sleep2: . Anyway some more pics

Posted Image
Speedster do exactly that
I'll throw a few more pics on later. A big thanks to Gazza for coming over and helping in the marshalling and the photo shots considering he's still getting over his hospital stay. Also to the lovely wife of mine for keeping us in tea and coffee and also feeding us over the period. It makes it a hole lot easier . The Round now travels over to Gazza's place where I'll return the compliment and give him a hand with his stages and enjoy my week off.
Cheers Craig

Well done Craig (and Mrs Craig plus Gazza). Caught me out and didn't know you were running the show on the week end. Have made some comments on the SCX Forum -> Here

Was only home a few hours on the weekend and off this week up north again.

How is is this? Went to duck up town yesterday and had no power steering. Noticed a puddle of fluid on the driveway so thought I had better look under the bonnet. Had trouble finding the release handle then when I opened it up (after looking for the catch) I realised I had never ever opened the bonnet over the two years since I had purchased the new Navvy. A lot under there for a 2.5 Turbo Diesel. Only ever had to change a tyre and that was a problem until Gazza turned up :sleep2:

Have a good time at Gazza's this week. It will be interesting to see how the anti SCX track treats the cars.

Cheers Guys

Hey Silver ,Reek asked the same so I'm doing a sheet as we speak. Yours was handling ok but found your motor was a bit intermittent (power on and off).Whether this was due to any crap in the can I dont know as the car was run on my test bed in both directions and it would right itself for a while then do the same again.Thus the reason Gaz ,Mel and I reckon this should be the last round as I think some of the motors may be getting rather tired by now.Anyway hopefully the comments sheet should be up for tomorrow night.

Here is what I made of it with the stage bonus points added to the results.

Total series standings:

Mal and Mel are comfortably ahead of the rest and Craig is closing in on the third place. Antony's Lancia Delta is very impressive, if he had not missed the first three races he would probably be in for a podium at the end of the series. :(
