Nice work Shane, Red Bull F1 looks great. Should be some impressive grids this year.

Struggling to come up to speed this year without much track time . The local boys at Narrangba are posting times quite a bit faster than last year , the pace will be hot .

 

cheers

Well that's funny , and it will be the last time I tell Noel anything ! To be fair 3 or 4 of the other guys are running hot times also . Maybe Andrew had the track at 13.8v and my car was under weight . I've only just built it and still in the tuning stage ....... :P

 

Anyway , what's the lead up to a big race without a bit of friendly rivalry , banter and sandbagging .

Catch me if you can :P :P :P ( think road runner )

All I can say with the z4 it was the hardest car I've built up to try and make weight. It is a real led sled this one.

 

My lap times were 2 tenths quicker than my Merc ,but last night I've gone back to the drawing board to find out where more led can fit.

My testing I was still 10 grams under.

From what I've seen up here most of the speed has come from motor upgrades . There seem to be some fast motors floating around . I don't think much of the extra performance is coming from a magical new set up or cornering speed , it's all straight line acceleration . Last years cars are still pulling last years times and are going well around the track , just being passed down the straight . Motor speed will be critical this year for 1/32

Hi Richo

 

I'm not suggesting anything underhanded or anything like that , it's just that the current batch or shipment of pointer motors seem to be a little stronger . I may be completely wrong but thats my observation .

 

I didn't intend to start a motor debate , I was just trying to suggest it may be worth investing in a new pointer motor for the 1/32 class if you haven't already .

Another beauty Cam , I was just talking to another racer recently about how much effort goes into these cars . Looks like a good few hours spent there , very nice .

 

Here's one that hasn't turned out so well , I thought there might be some advantage in the Toyota with the lower weight limit but so far I haven't been able to tap into it's potential . In fact I can't get it to go at all .

Very nice Werner, I have just put one of these together this week (rebelion lotus replica) and ran it on Friday for the first time and i have to say that those that get the chance to drive these cars at the APC are in for a real treat!

 

Another great class and will be great to run these cars in a big enduro event

 

Can't wait to see the bodies completed

Here's Big Al's Can-Am Historic that I just finished,my chassis but will make sure Al's wheels look good for his first APC assault.

Not as many concourse points as Cam's Porsche even after he stuffed it up gluing in the head lights :wacko::blink:
