Thanks to Gazza,Teamred and the boys for a great effort in running this round so quickly.I know hot hot it gets in the sheds, our round last year was run in 36 degree heat!
Great pics,thank you very much.

I don't know why "nails car is now lacking clearance,although my notes do mention "only Just". Under the clearance check. Could the braids have now flattened? I think this car was running as a tripod with the front wheels off the ground.

Tazracer will have to try and send some gears on to Obsidth for the next round. Brian PM me for address!

Hi Guys

Well done to Chris on his maiden round win, looks like the boys tuning tips payed off :D
Also well done to Stig and Tore on the other podium spots.
and Good work done by Gazza, Craig and Co. on the round and nice pics of your wives too!!
my result was a bit further down the order than I would have liked but there ya go.
Now onto Obsidth's place, I hope it hasn't floated away out of the shed, Jason

Cheers Alan

Thanks for running the round boys and for the pic of my car. Looks like mine was a bit tippy again. Hope you get some rest so we can get the SCX proxy up and running finally.

Look forward to the next round (even if I keep sliding down the order) :rolleyes:

The crown gear has an alloy hub and to me it looks like it has worn badly allowing the crown and rear axle to move sideways and out of mesh!

Comments on the cars

In general the majority of the cars were good, there were as always a few WTF cars but that's normal

Some of the field opted for the larger motors which are good on a flat track, but over the top on mine

The weight on most the cars was inside the body which brought the C.O.G up high

Here's a standard Escort with no weight on the outside .... a good 12mm wasted

Posted Image

And my Healey with weight glued as "out riggers"

Posted Image

Because my track has so many different curves and corners

Posted Image

A good low C.O.G car is important as some corners have plenty of negative camber

Posted Image

And the run down to the infamous hair pin

Posted Image

Here's the run up towards the hair pin

Posted Image

You can see the difference in height and camber

Posted Image

Cars with no grip suffer on this corner

Posted Image

Some cars were left standard or modified to give maximum down force on the braid,

Posted Image

good idea but when coupled with too much weight up high and a fee floating front axle ......

Posted Image

Posted Image

Most the Fly Porsches and a few other makes suffered from this problem

Basicly over motored cars with bad tyre choice and top heavy don't perform to well on this track ..... remember KISS

Thanks for the feed back Gazza,I know my Torana would have been Much nicer with less motor,IMO some thing around 17,000 would make it a nice car.I tried a BWA slim but that was too slow.

Thanks for the info. Some food for thought there.
I will giving more attention to the motor next time. As I guess the RX 4H makes my car over motored ? I had two 42Bs' at hand when setting up the Spyder, one was a complete dud, maybe the better of the two was a dud too, The 4H was way better than both. as the series progresses I am wondering if the 4H motor is now run in, therefore running better too. The Spyder did alright on your track considering I think it may be over powered, so it must be handling ok, and given its lack of performance in the last 2 rounds I am wondering that it maybe the overpowered motor having more effect on the handling than I gave any thought to .? There's a fair bit to consider in this slot car racing proxy thing, there are a lot of different tracks to set up for. Its all good fun watching, and looking for tips along the way, as the series unfolds. Thanks for the effort put into the feedback as it is really the only way we know where the car needs improving.

Yeh ... just a little too much power, couldn't push it to it's true potential, as the tyres were very good
