Please score me a decent finish...

I think I'll need to be in the top ten to hold my position on the scoreboard...

 

Thanks for running the round guys, and I'm looking forward to the final results...

How could second be up for grabs?

 

Maximum points for a round is 25.

Minimum points is 1.

Gap from 2nd to 3rd is 34.

 

At best, that will still leave a 10 point gap from 2nd to 3rd...

 

 

Now here's a mind bender...

Technically, anyone from 3rd to 8th could still secure the 3rd place...

Been another long run around the world. Good to see these little cars are still up to the long haul.

 

Fabien, I might be able to help you out with a new motor. But there's been nothing set in concrete for the next run yet. We'll have a chat when this one is finished.

This was my first proxy and I genuinely found it enjoyable to see where my little Ford has gone in its travels. Some fantastic tracks and im looking forward to seeing how it held up when it arrives back to me after this round.

 

A big thankyou to all involved, absolutely fantastic effort.

Well the final round has been run and this years series has come to an end, and what a final it was, the racing was close and it literally wasn't over until the last car crossed the line.

 

The overall performance of the cars was very good with most running hot and strong right to the end.

 

The biggest problem we could find is with the guide and pickup system and a discussion on it has been started in the 2015 thread

 

With the guide problem in mind and noticing that the braids on many of the cars had deteriorated or had been (in my opinion) installed incorrectly, I set up two types of guides that fit all the models and used them

Also there was the usual problems with the chicken legs

 

DSC_0633_zpsfcf65f51.jpg

 

Which need adjusting before the car could turn a wheel, there was also problems with a couple of cars that had used bluetack or similar the keep the front screws in, but so much was used that it had "flowed over" into the chicken leg housing and stopped any movement

Some of the cars had been recycled through again with makeshift repairs done before being sent away

pickup rail soldered together, wire around rear bearing holder ........

 

We also had 7 or 8 loose wheels that needed to be reglued, there was also one failure during the final stages, with the hub snapping away from the wheel shaft, always a chance of this happening when using superglue, as it is known to make the plastic brittle

With all the doom a gloom out of the way here's the results for the final Round .........

 

Final_zps2612824a.jpg

 

As you can see very close, and very mixed and a real shakeup for the leader board

Congratulations to the podiumites. A resounding win for MTUCKER666. The rest of us were really in a different race.

 

Well done to all the organisers, drivers, marshals and other helpers. A great series I will be happy to enter again.

 

The performance of my car in this last round was a big disappointment and by far the worst for the series. Hopefully my car is still intact.

 

Cannot complain as still managed (just) a top 10 finish. All the best to all the others competitors also and look forward to crossing swords again next year.

Another huge series done and dusted.

 

Congratulations to the cream on the top. Matt, truly a brilliant car. Set a new benchmark.

 

Knealer and Bri worthy combatants to stand on the second and third steps.

 

Awesome work guys. Huge thanks for organizing another brilliant series and one that never fails to entertain.

 

Thank you to the guys at MJK for supporting this great series. And also to Rick and Scorpius for giving us a prize to aim for.

 

Three cheers for the series directors.

I am well chuffed, enormous thanks to the series organisers, all the round hosts and sponsors. The mjk tyres gave great grip and were really consistent. I used them also on my OSC Peugeot in the slot rally GB championship and they performed really well (4th in class over the year).

 

The scorpius wireless system took a bit of getting used to but it functioned well and the ability to wander round with controller in hand adds a great dimension to racing.

 

My citroen will have to be retired to my proxy hall of fame and a new car prepped for 2015.

 

Thanks again.

 

Matt

Thanks Gazza and co for running the round, the series, and everything else that keeps this series going.

 

It has been a fantastic series, my second one with the Mitsubishi, which will likely earn retirement from racing after this.

 

Second place overall is more than I thought I could ever achieve and off the back of this positive result I am trying my luck in a few more proxies!

 

Got to echo Matt's thoughts on the MJK tyres they are superb and I used some on my oz rally car.

 

Congratulations to Matt and my club mate Big Bri on making the series podium.

 

Thanks to all the runners and hosts and I look forward to getting started in 2015!

Pretty awesome way to finish off the season :) Thanks to everyone involved with the running of the proxy. Once again it was very enjoyable to follow, with just a little hiccup in the middle. Well done to those up the top, i've been there before and its a great feeling. My car needs a bit of work, its seem to work ok on home turf but struggles a bit OS. Some work to be done in the off season.

Well lads been a great series congrats to Matt in a class of his own and to Knealer and Big Bri for filling the top spots, to all who have made this possible the production team well done all round, to MJK for a superb tyre , use them here on all my tin tops, to Scorpius for the added prize to aim for , all the hosts who put in the hours and made it all work, to all the guys who never got a sniff of the podium keep on trying guys, not sure about 2015 already have a car built but will now have to wait and see what comes out of the discussions taking place

And I think my Mitsi deserves a big rest and a major overhaul done 2 seasons and gone backwards, best wishes to all who took part. :)

Congrats to the podiumites and the hosts.

 

Pity I couldn't have finished a few places higher in this final round...

If I had, I would have stayed in 6th instead of slipping to 8th.

 

Well pleased with my top 10 overall finish though...

 

 

 

For the car returns, both "Ben_M" and mine can be returned to me...

 

Thanks guys for running this great proxy.

Looking forward to the final rule set for next year.
