Jason,

 

I'm finally going to make an appearance soon at the Chair Tuesday nights.

 

What cars are most running in the Slot.It series?

 

What can be done to the scalextric classics? Can I glue and true the tyres? Add weight?

 

mark

 

Hi Mark,

 

Thats great news to hear that your coming to race in the near future. I find we are down on numbers at the moment.

 

with Regards to the Slot It Class, most of the drivers are either racing the Porsche 956's, Mercedes Sauber C9's or Mazda 787B's. Most Cars are running an inline configuration with a red 29,000 rpm (red) motor. The Choice for tyres are the F15 Supersoft Tyres. Gluing the tyres helps alot. My gear ratio is around the 2.8/1 figure. The fastest cars are running in the 6.1 - 6.4 second area

 

With Regards to the scalextric Classic class, These cars are Stock Standard out of the box racing. "Original Tyres may be trued and Glued, However the Original Tread must be still Visible." With Regarding with weight, there is no rule about adding weight but we find that adding weight to cars doesn't help at all.

 

I hope that has answered your questions.

 

If anyone in general is Interested about certin rules or classes, etc... , I'm sure that one of us Armchair Locals including myself can help you out.

 

Thanks,

Jason Brooks - Sclaextric V8

Thanks Jason,

 

Out of curiosity how long before the classes are changed?

 

I have a spare GT40 sitting around at home that is stock. I might start on the GT40 night as it'll be a good lesson for me (in losing) and it means I can have 2 races with the GT40 and the stock DP's.

 

The slot.it's on the other hand I'll have to order some parts in. I don't have a Plafit car so I'm debating about whether it would be worth coming along for a single class of racing?

Hi Mark,

 

Usually we Change Classes at the end of Each year. So we at least have another 4 to 5 months before deciding for next year. We are planning to change some of the classes depending on what everyone perfers to drive and also considering how much each car costs and all the parts added. The rumours at the moment are either a NSR Mosler Class, Pinoneer Mussle Car Class, and either an SCX Nascar or GT or Maybe even Scalextric Fiat 500's as a host class. We are still a long way before deciding.

 

Thats great that you have a few cars to come along with and race. However we do carry some spare cars if anyone doesn't have that particular car for that class. I find Plafit cars are quite expensive to set up and quite hard to set up correctly. In the end someone else built a car for me.

 

I also find that when new people come along to race that they take a long time to adapt to the track and conditions. So it maybe a while to get your name off the bottom of the list. Practice makes perfect at Armchair. Good Luck!

 

Thanks,

Jason Brooks - Scalextric V8

Brooksie.....

 

Aside from my GT40, what else do I need to bring along tomorrow? Screwdriver? Sense of humour? 6-pack? :)

 

I've already told the kids that I'm expecting last place, anything better and it will exceed expectation.

 

Big question, should I glue the GT40 tyres or not?

Hey Mark,

 

Just bring along your GT40 car and other bits and pieces.

 

Are you having pizza tonight?

 

You can glue the tyres on but we tend not to.

 

Just see how you go tonight. I'm sure you will do allright.

 

Thanks,

Thanks Jason for posting up those amazing results.

 

Big thanks to everyone I met last night, I had a great time racing your cars....

 

Still can't quite believe that I registered 0 laps for my first ever heat after my GT40 refused to budge off the start line. The life expectancy of many cars was probably reduced in my hands and I was pleased that I was not responsible for Geoff's Chap wing breakage.

 

I'd thoroughly recommend the race night to anyone who has not been before, a lovely bunch of racers.

 

I'll be back for more pain and suffering in a couple of weeks, time to find myself a new GT40 (one that actually goes)

High drama in the host class last night; in the last heat of the night a tangle under the bridge left Jason 5 or 6 laps down for the heat. Pure bad luck.

 

Still, a pirique victory is better than a narrow loss!

Rub it in Matt :lol:

 

However I have worked out that i have rapped up the championship by 1 pt.

 

Its all about the Slot It races now.

Another great night of racing Jason - the Armchair curse hit me once again with your loan car losing an air intake and causing my car to spectacularly launch itself at the timing tower in the middle of the long straight. Oh well.........

 

It was great to put some faces to some Auslot member names as well.

Last night was very entertaining Mark. I haven't seen a car spotaneously explode at full speed down the main straight before. Your luck will change soon.

 

Thanks for getting he timing system sorted out and the rsults posted Jason.
