Well, here we go again. The cars arrived on Monday.
Last night I ran a 10 lap prologue / shakedown, after the tyres and braids were cleaned.
There were 4 cars that had hard or slippery tyres that gave no grip at all. After a light sand the grip improved somewhat.

refer my comments below

I intend to run stage 1 this Friday night and the 2nd and final stage this Sunday.

Eno's car is in the post and should be here tomorrow.

Its running. That's the main thing. And forward is a good direction.

Do you mind if I channel Big Kev for a moment? I'm EXCITED!!!! Can't wait 'til Friday.

Miveson, I think someone told Scaley of that little deal. They're not planning on release until the end of the Proxy. :huh2:

Reason for edit: A little too excited

The fastest lap indicates the best lap of the ten run. With some cars it took 5 odd laps to get to know the car and drive it without any offs, so the fastest lap is sometimes a false reading of how the car will go in a 20-30 lap stage. All cars will be driven to get the best out of them while trying not to have any offs. With some cars that will be at a slower, gentler pace than others.

Thanks Triggy, but "looks great" aint going to slow the bloody thing down. The Team Slot Alpine was only released on 14th Oct and by the time i got one sent over from Armchairs i only had 2 days to prepare it. Couldnt find a NC2 so i left the Team Slot Glory motor in it, hoping it was the 18000 rpm TS9 motor, wrong, its actually the TS11 a 21500 rpm screamer. Should be a challenge to get around a rally track. BRK

..I'm sure mine's going to be "What was he thinking?"

I've had a ball putting this together with Chris (the 14 yo stepson) so when we come from behind to win it's partly his fault.. of course it if all goes wahoonie shaped it's only partly me fault.. ( :) )

Critique so I learn for next year will be welcome.. :huh2:

[.snip..noisy but steady runner..]

I'll admit it's no speed demon, but am slightly concerned that it's 'noisy'... car was clearanced well, and all mechanicals well secured and spaced (mainly with Araldite), so short of a breakage or loosened interior I'm at a loss to explain that one. <_< Perhaps, if not too much problem, you might give it a quick inspection before the event..?

Thanks in advance,

Thanks in advance,

Will do Haystack. I think it is just gear mesh noise, being that it is a bit noiser than normal / what I usually hear at our club ( FCC excluded :huh: )
Will let you know what I find.

Appreciate that Triggy, if it is just the gear noise (I recall there was a little), then that should be a self rectifying condition; either it will wear in or out, as there is not much adjustment

I will see what I can do to tame it with the trigger finger Chris! It does look nice on the track, so I will drive it slowly so I can appreciate the looks for as long as possible :huh:

Great feedback :huh:

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..

Edited by first corner crash, 26 November 2010 - 01:45 AM.

4x national champion 6x national runner up. I come second most often but my girlfriends happy.
