How many lanes is the track Craig? Does it have club potential?

If I add a middle section to it of same length as the other two pieces then yes.Its a 3 laner. Needs quite a bit of work to get to club standard but could be done. But thinking about it I may go to a four laner and make a completely new track. 7 metres long to be precise. Figure 8 or either just two bends and two straights. Just a speed track. Going back to the one I picked up would still be a good practise / test track.

I've thought about figure 8s too. Great idea I reckon. Or maybe a track that is symmetrical so that it doesn't favour any particular lane. A simple track thats fast and easy for all skill levels.

Thats exactly my thinking. Still will get this track up and running.See how I go. Spent a bit of time on my cars today but no trackavailable to test them out .Rang Viv but his wife said he was busy and he would ring back.....He didnt.Wanted to ask for a spare hour on his track this afternoon. Hence the test track I will set up.

I'm keen for some 65-80 sports this week. Finally got my MkII sorted. We should think about revisiting our rules discussions also. Has the club tried classes that are unpodded only?

Heya Craig

 

Chris emailed instead of posting here.

Will get NPSR cleaned up for use.

Classes

trucks

Lmp/Gp C

nascar

 

But I won't run my "kitset Buggy" there, too much truck too little sidewall barrier.

 

yeah, we should continue that discussion. Non podded also covers quite a range of speeds.

eg Mac's spirit 512 ferrari in the proxy is an absolute weapon as are his Slotter Lolas.

The Fly cars of similar ilk are nice, but lower powered, and not as good quality mechanics, so with the best tuning won't be as fast . .

Don't think i'll risk the truck. Nascar will be fun. Maybe we should start posting results too.

If we are on Wongys track then I would like to try the Pugs.

 

I seem to remember that someone said mine was a lucky fast one.

I probably said that when you passed me. I would like to try the Pugs too, but NPSR runs at 14v?? which could be tricky.

 

Btw Chris if you read this the 'Email Chris' link on the clubs page of NZSCA links to grego@grego.co.nz.

Hey Smithy Thanks for the use of your adapter :D

I don't know whether I grabbed your car or you picked up mine but now I have your Pug! :o We'll have to figure out a time to swap them back. Unless of course yours goes faster....

Thanks Chris for hosting last night.

Great idea JK, I should have swapped mine for munter's "lucky fast one" LOL

 

They weren't too bad to drive there considering the higher voltage and the low borders.

But hard to get the controller settings right "in-race" - didn't practice mine - so the cornering speeds were a bit hit and miss. I stuffed up my first lane, and that was pretty much my fate sealed.

 

It was nice running some LMPs for a change as well as the nats-class Group C.

[i can hear Smithy cheering all the way from from Selini as he reads this]

Can't make it to Mike's tomorrow to help with the move as I have my kids this weekend. I let Mike the pie guy know about that.

We'll have to sort out another time. Could be Thursday.....

Wonder if Munter would swap me for his "lucking fast one".....probably wouldn't take :ph34r:

Mike the PieGuy is working night shift at present, that's why he isn't at club, and can only do weekends for the move.

I'd help, but all I could lift would be the strops on the trailer.

Another great night of racing, good to mix up the formats too. JK is improving well. I can't help tomm, offered to help Sunday but never heard back from Mike A. Hope all goes well. Weather should hold up.
