Hi Phil,

Car posted just now, I am running an Avant Peugeot 207 (Factory inline mount, Avant Hunter motor) in the WRC class. Not sure how it will run on the MJKs as never got chance to try it :o ! Fingers Crossed.

Thanks,

Hi Phil, Just confirming the Subie will be back after managing to rid it of all the weight without stuffing it.
Not sure about entering the historics,

Just waiting on a delivery to get work underway for the Raid class - hopefully it'll be here this week.....

The mini was a joy to work with...... had to lots of work.......
  • Swapped out stupid RPM motor for something a bit gentler (BWA slim)
  • Shaved driver/co-driver legs (dremel not Gillette)
  • Added a bundle of weight to the front chassis and body
  • MJK rears added and glued to the rims
  • Standard fronts treated with nail polish (oh the smell)
  • New pinion as the old one stripped itself the moment I applied any power
  • Glued bearings in to chassis (apply heat if need to take them out).
  • Sanded chassis a little bit
Pretty happy with results......

How does it run - NFI as I'm trackless at the moment. Based on history it'll come pretty close to last - even if that is the case IMHO every will love the car and the lights :)

Happy Sundays

Well done Miveson. Had I known would have had a go at developing/racing my similar car. A bit late now.

Will be interesting to see how it goes. Best of luck. Have never put mine on track but BWA slimline seems good choice.

I see you've done plenty already, but those front tyre edges are a little bit sharp still, for my liking. That short guide lead from the front wheels will have it wanting to trip over it's nose a bit as it is. Also, try to get the guide a little deeper(spacer?), you wont regret it.

Another problem you might find with the mini is the clearence

Motor sits very low, and because of it's short wheelbase, it can hit humps or jumps in the track, if the bare metal of the motor is exposed it can also short out the power or timing, suggest putting some gaffer tape or such over it, do that of course and you risk the motor over heating, but as it's only on the track for a few minutes at a time it should be ok

RS200 is nearly ready for it's return...

Changed the tyres for slightly wider MJK's
Changed the very nicely run in scaley motor (~22k rpm) for a 'slower' fly motor (~18k rpm)
Changed the guide for a standard Ninco one
Changed the pinion from 11t to 10t
Removed weight off of the bottom of the chassis
Changed DPR cover for lead weight
Currently at ~95g.
Running lap times similar to my Slot.It group C 14k powered cars arround my Scaley track... And very nice to drive...

Still to go...
Raise final weight to ~105g
Change guide wires for soft silicone ones
Change the braids.


Still to tune the raid truck though... Seems to be just not enough time in the day...
Also can't decide weither to run the BMW X1 or the Stadium Truck...
If it had a toothed belt/pulleys, it would be a no brainer on the X1, but the rubber belt offers little if any performance gain...

PS. Any idea if the standard Ninco Raid rubber will work at all?
They seem soft enough, and grip well on my Scaley sport track...
