First up for your viewing pleasure is the Raid Trucks

 

This is the first time these have been run, we have an interesting field of vehicles with a wide choice of tyres, weight and height.

 

As with all events on this track, it was the ability to negotiate the hair pin that placed the car at the top or the bottom of the rostrum

The Avant Lancer of AMCC went like all powers around all the track except for the hairpin .... did not get around once, the body looks to have been lowered and may be fowling the guide

The tyres on the rear of Ben's Schlesser had good grip for about 4 laps, after that it was like driving on ice

 

DSC_1207_zps0db7c9b8.jpg

 

Phils BMW just a little unstable on the track plus had a couple of hairpin issues

 

DSC_1248_zpsf897240e.jpg

 

Marks Schlesser went well just couldn't match the pace of the top three

 

DSC_1264_zpsd13de9bc.jpg

 

Shadow Rusty's Pro Truck went like a rocket but would let go on the hairpin without any notice, scored the fastest lap for the Raids, and was a second off the current lap record

 

DSC_1277_zpsf8e8c562.jpg

 

Craig's VeeDub came from no where, noticed that it had three loose wheels (Mark you had one) super glued back on and it was a surprise to drive, a couple of hiccups (hairpin) apart from that great little car truck

 

DSC_1243_zps92626874.jpg

 

Ross's X5, with 163 grms it literally stuck like s**t to a blanket, had an almost perfect run, a couple of minor problems but made the hairpin every time

 

DSC_00172_zps581dc65f.jpg

 

Mine ended up with an electrical problem and had a DNF, it will also be withdrawn from the rest of the series

 

Final results winners were ..... GAS4IT, Teamred and shadow rusty

Thanks for getting things under way Gazza.

I think my grippy tyres fitted to some of the cars are just too grippy on the tight corners and wont allow any slide.

Way to make me finish last Gazza :P Sorry to hear you had to pull the pin. Thanks for getting things underway, glad my car was good for 4 laps at least.

Gotta learn some how Phil, I'm taking a hit now so future entrants know what tyres not to use. If I had of sent a car that was at the right height then it would still have the Ninco tires on it.

Thanks for running the round Gazza.

 

Are these final results for the raid round?

 

Yes Mark these are the final results, i'll be running all the rounds in one big run, 18 laps, winner take all, shows up the best and worse the cars/trucks have to offer

Fabian MJK don't do a raid tyre so I made some for this year, but IMO they are a little soft.

Eurethsnes are a very good all round tyre for rally car.

What are the options besides the yours and the standard Ninco and Avant tyres?

Fabian the raids need large diameter tyres. I could no find any other tyres to fit and give the required diameter. Fly truck tyresvfitvthevBoler as has different wheels.

Ben as stated I did not find any.

It's simple standard ninco tyres

For raids imo

cheap an are available to everyone

To be honest I glued them and did heaps of

Laps on my rally track with the usual clean

On wet&dry I only have a scaleauto truer so

I couldn't true them

Noticed at Craig's (round 4) that mine was the only one without brakes, and wouldn't slow down enough for the corners, so tip tip tip, ran a few laps here and it was on off, on off with the power then nothing

Ok the WRC cars have been run and big surprises all around

 

First up the majority of the cars were very good and negotiated the hairpin without any problems .... most of the times, and as always this was the determining factor in the final positions

 

The field was very close as you can see by the times and a hiccup here and there would drop a car down the list, a couple of cars stood out from the rest and one managed to do the fastest lap ever around the track

 

Some of the action ........

Mel what can i say, it was the track cleaner but i don't think that was the problem .... just couldn't keep up, maybe it's time you won another one

DSC_1083_zps40263d99.jpg

Ross, went well, couple of issues with the hairpin robbed you of a better spot

DSC_1173_zps01a12c6e.jpg

Alexis, had little traction around the track and sounded like it was scrapping, looks like the rear of the chassis is hitting some of the high spots and hills on the track

a89b5dc7-dfcb-4477-913a-60e1a9683cc2_zps3c4553ad.jpg

DSC_1120_zps5bbe7648.jpg

Peter Gunn .... again a couple of problems on a few of the corners

DSC_1151_zps4836f4bc.jpg

Fabian .... the thing is a rocket ship, but wouldn't get around the hairpin so it would loose 1-2 seconds each lap, even when you hover marshal

DSC_1046_zpsed83d81d.jpg

Charles .... another good performer, pace was down a little but also had a few corner issues

DSC_1093_zpse9ea656b.jpg

Knealer, great little car, maybe a little light, bounced about a little good solid run

DSC_1161_zps7aab6704.jpg

AMCC .... another good car, pushed it to it's limits and couldn't get anything else out of it

DSC_00142_zps2337bdb2.jpg

Ember .... totally unexpected, just sat on the track and never came off, the power is nothing to write home about, but it's consistent and that's what pays off in the end

DSC_1068_zps3df0287c.jpg

NTZ .... another great car, couple of hairpin issues lost a few seconds

DSC_1187_zps030600bf.jpg

slo1quick ...... perfect !

DSC_00102_zpse72164e7.jpg

DSC_00082_zps146dea57.jpg

 

Winners were ..... Slo1quick, NTZ and Ember

Congrats to NTZ and Ember on the podium spots for the WRC!

Top job on the round so far, as usual, Gazza, good luck with the Historics and thanks to your helpers too. Great pictorial, as usual!

Pretty chuffed with the turn around for the #2 car this time round (last place here last year) .... now if only I could remember what mods' I made... :)

Interesting to see the differing results throughout the field from track to track.

Cheers

Thanks Gazza for getting the WRC completed, certainly a few turn arounds on the podium.

No lamp posts for the Celica to stop at has made a difference. Wonder if Embers RS will perform well on your track.

Well done to Stu with the Subaru, finally going well after years of development, always a constant performer, usually let down by grip levels.

The 207's are impressive.

But looking at the lap times there are no bad cars in this field.

as you said, some very interesting surprise on the WRC. thanks for running the event and great pictures!

 

i have no rally track available close by so i do not know how to tune for the airpin. I checked last year result and it was the same. I must be missing someong on the tuning, but what ????

Was it desloting flat on the airpin?

Fabian, this is the hairpin, tight l/h corner roughly 120mm dia,

 

DSC00696.jpg

 

You come down quickly through a set of steps, sharp left then down again to a negative r/h corner

 

I noticed that your car is the SCX Pro which is fitted with a drop arm which you have taped up, also there is no guide movement ie fitting a ninco sprung guide or modifying the original

 

Having a sprung guide defiantly helps in negotiating the hairpin, without any guide movement to help the car turn the tight corner

 

Also, which has been pointed out before, this is a rough as guts rally track, all the routing was done by hand, including the corners, there is nothing smooth about it, having a sprung guide fitted helps with keeping contact over all the track

OZ Rally Classics, the final stage

LayoutOzrally2015_zps5338e60a.jpg

 

Another great line up of cars which turned out some very quick times, and some more shuffling of the leader board

 

On past rounds the MSC cars, on paper, were the ones to beat, but would they have it all there own way at this round, of course they were because your only reading this after you've found the results.

 

Some of the action .......

A couple of the cars in the field, Boss 302, Aquakiwi, Branco , had tyres that offered very little grip on my track, and spent most of there time cannoning off the scenery

 

DSC_0042_zps038f6281.jpg

DSC_0204_zpscab479e6.jpg

The Mini made the hairpin every time, which was a big help .......

DSC_0125_zpsa5595f2a.jpg

NTZ .... too low scraping the track, and chewing the tyres up

DSC_00363_zpscf18fa96.jpg

Matt, curef99 and Shadow .... a bit unstable and down on grip

DSC_0157_zps28b1f28b.jpg

DSC_00162_zpse6793c6a.jpg

DSC_0102_zps3cba0af5.jpg

Stubbo and CharlesX ..... good setup but a little down on power to catch the front runners

DSC_0023_zpsecbfc324.jpg

DSC_0104_zps519ece49.jpg

BenM and Mel ..... Even the all conquering Fly Racing Porsche's of a few years back are showing their age, still great fun to drive but you're at %110 all the time

DSC_0017_zps9897a13f.jpg

DSC_0077_zpsf2f0a5d7.jpg

Ember ..... good setup, felt like it was getting tired towards the end of it's run, motor ? braids? .... a set of alloy rims would help in smoothing out the ride a little more

DSC_0052_zpsd88ed85f.jpg

Alexis .... another great car, just couldn't push it any further, may need a little more weight, 10 - 15 gms under the top three

DSC_00243_zpsb1a38b5f.jpg

Phil .... drove the ring off it, loved the track and heaps better than last year, just couldn't squeeze another tenth out of it

DSC_0090_zps4783bcae.jpg

Rossko ..... great setup, haven't seen the last of this one

DSC_0187_zps9f68e0e6.jpg

Peter Gunn .... great car to drive, not a bees dick between the three of you, keep an eye on the rear view mirror

DSC_0175_zps660ee71c.jpg

 

Winners were .... Peter Gunn, GAS4IT and Pkalbfell
