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,

Posted Image

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

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

Posted Image
Posted Image
The Mini made the hairpin every time, which was a big help .......
Posted Image
NTZ .... too low scraping the track, and chewing the tyres up
Posted Image
Matt, curef99 and Shadow .... a bit unstable and down on grip
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Stubbo and CharlesX ..... good setup but a little down on power to catch the front runners
Posted Image
Posted Image
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
Posted Image
Posted Image
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
Posted Image
Alexis .... another great car, just couldn't push it any further, may need a little more weight, 10 - 15 gms under the top three
Posted Image
Phil .... drove the ring off it, loved the track and heaps better than last year, just couldn't squeeze another tenth out of it
Posted Image
Rossko ..... great setup, haven't seen the last of this one
Posted Image
Peter Gunn .... great car to drive, not a bees dick between the three of you, keep an eye on the rear view mirror
Posted Image

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

It's all done with mirrors ......

Thanks Gazza and who ever helped run this round.
The results look like a repeat of last year, bloody RS 200 again. I think the Metro us just too twichy compared to the longer RS Fords.
Weill done Peter and Gas41(fastest lap).
Fabian and Lynnes cars posted some good times, But may be just a bit light for this track.

I must admit the RS200 was a last minute choice and I think I left if a little light. But the car is pretty much a classic rally car format, ie) a box with a wheel on each corner.

yep, the RS200 is a blast... the list of P1 is impressive. i will settle for a p3 in classic at the end of the serie. I will work on the weight and guide for next year.

On the WRC, from P4 it is very .... very tight in the point.

This is a great year of proxy again. If we got the European to do their own serie followed by a final for the top 3 of each continent it may be event better!

Well you did ask

Just on that photo for a second, it shows the importance of gluing the tyres on, at full noise going over the jump (sort of) you can just see the tyre expanding

Posted Image

Gluing and truing, all help in the overall performance
