Most of the better cars have tyres almost right on the limit, also clearance is about the legal limit.
These cars have little torque so clearance on the gears needs a little more than normal. Rear axle should spin very freely with out the motor fitted.

You would have to put THAT photo up Phil! now the secret is out. My next trick is to operate the cars from an adjoining room. Comments have given me a good laugh.............

Just an observation about performance........ there is a fair amount of difference in the cars depending on the radius of the corners - this is probably accentuated on a 4 lane track. Also the difference between the really good cars and the ones that are nearly there are in the fine details of the set up. In several cases I thought the front end set up of the "almost right" cars was not quite there - in terms of un-even ride height or the wheels being too far off the ground.

Anyway - it was an enjoyable night. And now I have studied a couple of particular cars in detail I am predicting an even more competitive Bass Strait Challenge in 2014 - watch out Stubbo and Stu!!!!
