Pretty close to perfect Gazza. Good and close. What more could you want?

Notes from a Cellar Dweller:

This was a looong proxy, and I had a certain disconnect from it in the finish. The feedback and discussion centred, in the main, around the pointy end. Fair enough; but a bit more info on my bus, past "no grip whatsoever" would help for next season. I reasoned from the events that the car balance and motor were good, tyres lousy. Will find out for sure when car returns.

I realise the scope of running this InterContinental circus, congrats to the Ringmasters, and the National Cat Herders, One and All.

Top end next season.

As a Proxy virgin, I found it great fun to be part of. I did enjoy the feedback, maybe a little more form each round would certainly help us less knowledgeable participants.

The idea of a mid-term pit stop sounds attractive - racers get the change to tweak and fettle based on the comments form the rounds to date, but the cost and logistics could be a nightmare. Especially after Her Maj's Revenue and Customs bit my arse when the package arrived.

Must've been a steep learning curve, stepping to take over as you did, so well done and keep doing what you are doing.

Only a couple of things for me-
- No large commercial style tracks. Would rather see 2 stages on the same track than have one held on a large flat circuit, even Luff's Targa track is pushing it for me.
- Points, I think points should be awarded to at least the first half of the field. Ive been a cellar dweller a couple of times before and as Haystack said it is a long season, it would be nice if the odds of getting some points would be a bit easier, especially with such a large field.
- I also like the idea of the pitstop. There really shouldn't be too much extra work than normal as most of the cars should be in pretty good condition.

Otherwise, all is good. Although is there anything we can do to ensure that I finish up the top again? :P :ph34r: Its gunna be hard to stay up there.

This was my first ever proxy .
It would have been nice to see more photos or videos
from all of the tracks
Also, I finished towards the back of the feild, so a bit more
feed back for the back runners will help with car set up for the
next time.
I think this proxy was ment for the cars to finish as close
together as possible,so feedback should help.

I was very interested to see Bens calculation based on time. I would like to see some more research into the points system, the cut off where many entrants only get one point for running will now leave a lot of the field with very few points IF they have a couple of bad runs. Maybe allocate points for all the field from 50 down to 1 for last?

Mark did a spreadsheet at around round 10 Phil and at that stage other than one or two cars there was no real difference in placings.

I must say I didn't like the current system when first proposed but now believe it is the best. This series has been the closest we have had.
Up until the last round several cars had a chance of running 2nd or 3rd.

If it was 50 points for 1st and one or two cars dominated the early rounds then the middle order would have a difficult job of climbing back.

I think some one suggested that points pay to top half the field F1 pay only to 10 (I believe??)

A bit of water to go under the bridge before the rules etc are finalised
I can't believe that I wanted to grow up

I guess the point is that its not all about the top 15, the guys down the bottom end (and theres a chance that next year those in the top 10 from this year might find themselves down the bottom half of the results next year) want something realistic to chase. Maybe 1 through to 50 is a bit much, but I think 1-25 could work. With 50 entries, 35 would miss out with only 15 cars scoring points.

The current system has the advantage that it cuts down losses when you finish below the first 16 so in theory it gives a low finisher a chance to stay close to the leaders.

Over the series, I cut and pasted some of the suggestions re tuning from the top runners, into a word doc.

It is over several pages, and I've used it with some success with other rtr cars I've applied it to. Not a very scientific approach, some of the stuff I knew but hadn't done and applied some of the stuff I'd not thought of.

Easy enough to find if you trawl through the whole of the threads, or I can email anyone a copy, for a small financial consideration. :rolleyes:
