So you don't make the mistake Triggy

It's also a bit on the grubby side. Too many laps on the track. I asked His Lordship to give it a clean up while he was doing the other cars, but obviously slipped his mind.

Embs,

Lovely touch putting the L plate on. I'll try and stay in front of it (as if)...

That will very probably happen somewhere along the line Flip. I have little doubt.

I dont think you will do to bad I wouldn't be shocked if your car does better than mine on most tracks
I mainly built mine to be quick on my track not thinking of the other tracks

Found a little time on Sunday after adding numbers to all the cars to give them a 5 lap shakedown run.
I have only recorded the best lap time. A couple of the SCX cars need a bit of braid tuning as they are loosing some contact on the tight corners.

Several cars are struggling for grip, Taz,smallnails,Manimal and littlehales were the main ones. These would be faster with more grip.

Thanks for the information. Just curious as to the surface of this new track Phil?

Regards

The surface on Stigs track is a mix of different paints. He tried some different paints trying to simulate changing road surfaces YET they all drive about the same.

PM sent about you tyres.

Ember Yes once I removed a small piece of matter from the crown gear! No idea what! Your car drives well,easy to drive.

Looks like my revisions to last year's Healey have proved remarkably successful in making it slower.

dunger.

Oh well, plenty of room for improvement. It must be a surface thing, mine and slittlehales cars are both running ortmann comps, i wonder if anybody further up the field has chosen ortmann comps?

Hey Embs well done, If youd left it completely stock you might have even been a couple of spots higher!! :)

Look out for Jazzbell on tracks with a more "traditional" painted surface.
cheers

If I'd left it stock Rick it wouldn't have passed scrutineering. Would've been too low.

No idea what the extraneous matter could've been in the crown. Never mind.

Ok. We can stop the proxy now. I can't see anywhere to go but down. :)

Probably just a couple of chipped teeth on the crown. Not to worry I think the new ratio will suit the track better anyways :)

What are Ortmann comps Chris?. My car is on Ortmann tyres but they are the ones that replaced the blue dust compound, I think.

You think not a likely coagulation of superfluous amounts of molybdenum from the grease?

probably a piece of randomoneum Embs, normally found in proxy cars post series, sometimes also found in second hand eBay specials.

Tony the 'new grey' ortmanns are the ortmann comps, might explain your healey's less than desired performance in prologue too. My car was pretty good for grip on the tracks i tested it on, including dirty ones. Oh well, hopefully this doesn't hurt the end result too much.

I'm assuming you cleaned the tyres on the 'grip challenged' cars Phil?
