Ozrally Proxy Series 2010/11 - Round Two

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. you know i don't mind getting slated i am all in for fun but i am not even in the event.

I will let you both ponder the noisy geared Ninco porsche though..............................................

 

It finished first.

Triggy was second and i would have to check where Ricks quiet car finished..

it looks like Rick has been made quiet by your car :)

 

How does it go......

I have learnt my lesson obi one kenobi. I shall not question the master. I have searched high and low for the noisey 13T pinion which will transcend all known engineering principles. Next time we race the Ninco's you shall hear where I have been but you shall not see where I have been as it will be long gone. :)


cheers

IMO, one shouldn't compare results from one round to the other and expect that to be the norm throughout the series. Slotcar rally tracks have a lot of different characteristics and drivers and controllers. All variables that affect results from one round to the other. Those that are up there at the start of the series expect that to be the norm: for some that is the case: for others the results vary. Some have poor results in some rallies and get their 15 minutes of fame when a certain track suits their car and they get a good results. This all part of proxy rallying. Ride the highs and lows and enjoy the outcome for what it is: it is out of your control. You have a 1 in 31 chance of winning a stage.

 

Keep your expectations low and you won't be dissappointed!

 

Well said Mr Trig...in fact that can apply to any proxy slotcar event.

 

My proxy race mantra is from my mother "Prepare for the worst,hope for the best and take what comes"

 

 

Remaining your humble servant retaining his low expectations but still hoping for glory.

Suprised to find the car was too wide given I found it on a list of eligible cars & didn't modify the track. :rolleyes: Ah well - at least it runs allright. <_< Just send it back.

There were a heap of cars that made the list that MIGHT have qualified, the trick was to make sure that it did before you bought it!!

Howdy all. Long time no talk. Just a few pictures taken today while we get ready for the result (sorry, not much variety. Was doing product shots while the rally was being run):

 

You probably aren't going to believe me, but this was an action shot.....

I had purchased three cars that were on the list and didn't make it - bloody expensive. How do you get the supplier to take it out of the case and and measure before posting :rolleyes: Never again with me!

The 2nd and final stage was run and won this afternoon without any great dramas.

As I said before there were a lot of cars that are fun to drive. A few cars sufferred offs due to the off camber inclined corners where front end set ups wouldn't allow any give, but they will be more successful on the flatter tracks.

 

Thanks to Rick1776 and Hoffy for their assistance.

Thanks to all participants that entered, allowing me to enjoy another weekend with slotcars.

 

Cars are packed and will be delivered to Lenny Broke tomorrow.

Im surprised Ash took any shots of the cars at all. He seemed to spend most of the time chatting to the pit girls that Triggy had arranged to be at round 2 of the rally. Nice touch Triggy, the time seemed to fly as a result. Triggy was a man of discipline and just focused on the driving. Me and Hoffy, well lets just say we were distracted big time.

 

Yep I remember that deslot that want a deslot. I said did you see that, and Ash chimed in with I did better than that I got the snap!!

Quite pleased with 20th, there is a real battle ahead of me with Jazzbell, OTFS and Nails, less than 270ms after close to 60 laps, which is pretty amazing really.

 

I couldn't think of anything that would sound nice for your position, the only positive would be that at least your car is compliant (sorry Eno).

<_< Well. If I hadn't been so determined to have no doubt on compliance I probably wouldn't have made the mistake I made. Such is life.

 

That'll teach me to follow the rules. ;) I'd be better off working on bending them.

 

Anyway. Not over. Always got more chance to slip behind.

 

Hey. I'm doing what I promised I'd do. Stopping everyone else from falling off the bottom of the ladder. :)

Well done Triggy. How is the finger?

 

Same as the legs and shoulder after 7 hrs at the drivers station, aching a little....

 

good to see the car went a lot better on this stage

 

well done to the guys that won

 

Yep, a very nice car to drive.

 

...........Is your track considered 1 of the faster tracks Triggy ?

 

I wouldn't think so.
