I think the tyres might be quite old even three or four years old. They were all I had and to be honest I had nothing to compare them to.

Maybe next year.........................

The Historic cars had their two Stages today.

Posted Image
Fabians Avant Alpine is very fast,BUT IMO a little light for Shelmore track,BUT watch this one.Great fun to drive.

Posted Image
Boss 302 Team Slot Renault is a real surprize,Bruce is not known for great car preparation but this one is very good and very easy to drive.

Posted Image
Alexis MSC Metro just did not seem to have the grip here BUT very smooth and easy to drive,

Posted Image

Aquakiwi's Stratos is a very big improvement over last years car,nice car,just needs a bit more development.

Posted Image
Branco Ninco Lancia looks great,but lacks weight and power,

Posted Image
My Metro, has had a gear change and new tyres from last year trying to make it smoother and easier to drive.
Still not as good as I would have liked.

Posted Image
CharlesX ( BillX) Scalex RS200 still same handgranade motor as last year so very hard to drive smooth.

Posted Image

Matt Tucker Opel with small tyres handled well, but a bit narrow, nice to drive.

Posted Image
NTZ Slotter Opel still sounds like being inside a WRC car, big car for this tight track. Does not like hitting any scenery!

Posted Image
Mels Fly Racing Porsche, dissapointing with the times as it felt fast and good to drive,could do with more grip, on this track.

Posted Image

GAS41T MSC RS200 Very fast in Stage 1 Just not as good for stage 2,still a very good car.

Posted Image

Stubbos Ninco Lancia, just lacks grip and wants to hit all the banks,I think if this car had better tyres in would be really good.

Posted Image

Very good car, a bit wide for here,results do not reflect how good it is.



Posted Image
Embers MSC Rs 200, if here Celica wanted to cock its legs on all the corners it is because it was watching this car!
Plenty of grip and not enought weight lifting wheels on most corners.

Posted Image

Rusty's Scalex RS200 returns after a good run last year,Very easy to drive,just a little off the pace. BUT should still end up with some very good points.


Posted Image

Mivesons Scalex MINI! What can I say? It actually is fun to drive and handles well for the width of tyres.No matter how hard I tried I could not hit any scenery!

Posted Image

Peter Gunns MSC RS200 Fast car, just tended to de slot for no reason.I think we will see some good performance from this car on other tracks.



Posted Image

How close is that for finish? IMO any of the first 11 cars could win this.There is very little in lap times
so it comes down to drivability on the other tracks.

Appart from poor grip on a few cars,they are all very good cars, thanks everyone for all the work to get them here abd so well prepared.

Thanks for hosting Phil, pleased to see my car off the bottom rung especially after seeing just how bad my other Lancia (Grp 5) was in the final round yesterday.

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D yehaaa I'm not last (at this stage).

Thanks for the round Phil. Great shots. Perhaps my next year's sponsors should be RSPCA and Lost Dogs Home.

Congrats to those that made the podium.

Ember I think you should just sell some of that grip to Stubbo , won't need any sponsors then
Ben adding comments with the. Pics makes it easy for me, my old brain can easily associate the cars and handling.
Much easier than trying to write or record notes during the event with two talking girls comparing every car and if it was pretty!

Thanks for the round Phil. Well run.
Around 40 cars - Would be a big day if all run together :o
Congratulations to those at the sharp end, but as Phil said we can expect a whole range of results through the series.

Off to Mexico now eh? (bottom of the big Island) :P

pos 4 in WRC and pos 3 in historic... this last minute change of heart on the rear wheels with new MJK on the night before shipping was great.

As for the question about old MJK... a nice cleaning of the tires with water before the stage is helping a lot.

the alpine was due to be light but a position 3 is amazing. About the WRC, the car / motor is fun, it needs way more brake than the ninco.

I run all tyres on a wet pad before each run and usually after a couple of warm up laps, I assume most track hosts do the same

Brakes - what are they on a purpose rally track?. Well maybe at the end of one or two straights. IMO break setting as least aggressive as possible with rallies

Whoo hoo...

Thanks heaps for running the round Phil.
The photos and comments were great...

Congrats on the podium getters...
Happy to be in 4th behind a couple of MSC's and an Avant.

There were only a few changes to the Scaley RS-200 from last year...
  • Dropped 1 tooth on the pinion.
  • Increased rear tyre diameter by ~1mm.
  • Moved the lead around to meet the new rules. Weight is about the same, and balance is very similar too.
  • But the biggest change was going from a great Scaley 18k to a 'slow' Fly 18k.
The difference in motors is ~3k rpm, and the fly has slightly less torque.
Ultimately, I wanted a SRP 16k motor, and gear it up slightly, but that wasn't to be.
It's speed should increase slightly over course of the Rally as it's a very fresh motor, but I'm hoping it doesn't get as crazy as the last motor as that definitely made the car much harder to drive.


Phil,
Is there a list of entrants cars / manufacturers / motor / gearing / podded / etc?

Rusty will try and sort all info while packing the cars to send to Stu.
The cars were run over 3 days, one class each day.
Track was vacuumed before each stage, each car had its tyres and braids cleaned before its fun.
Tyre cleaning was using a water with a couple f drops of detergent that really cleans eurethane tyres with no residue.

It would be interesting to know who had fresh new tyres fitted. Several cars actually having to much grip!

Mine were as fresh as possible. Adelaide to Perth to here and straight to Tassie. The tyres have already done the equivalent kms of a full series before hitting the track.

Mine are well used and probably 2 years old...

Hi Phil.

Both my cars have new tyres on back only but otherwise pretty much straight from previous year.
