Rnd 1 Minto Rally Park

Recommended Posts

Hi all , we've finally got this Proxy underway. Firstly I gave the cars run on friday . 3.cars had prblems. Knealer, your car seems to be binding from what looks like the guards. Bigmanrallies ,know this is your first proxy your motor sounds tight , give it a bit of oil to see if it changes. Alexis , usual thing for plastic hubs , wheel came loose . Nothing a bit of super glue can fix . Other than that the others came through ok.

 

Gazza and I ran stage 1 yesterday . My middle section gave a few cars grief , wth good runs up until that section. Doesn't matter how fast or slow you come into these esses , if the car doesn' like it , it will come off causing a second to be lost every time . Example , Embers , quick car , little twitchy but up until the esses ,disaster. Got say that the SCX cars are the only manufacture that does it. Never have probs with other , only the drivers that cant get used to them and Gas4it can tell you w hat there like. Anyway enough drbble , I will post up the first stage in a little while before Gaz gets here to help me do stage 2. Gaz will be doing the usual taking of the pics as well.

Cheers Craig

Had nearly forgotten about this proxy. Hope it goes well Craig. Seems I've forgotten how to build a nice solid rally car.

Good to see Jack concentrating fiercely on the task at hand. But I think Graham looks a bit concerned. Must be the approach to the esses has him worried.

 

Well done to the Stage one podiumites.

As it turned out Grahams concerns were well founded ......

Splendid !

Great that the wheels are rolling now (pun intended LOL). Situation normal for me - dicing for the lowest position. This is kind of like F1 - although I feel I have made an advance in performance, everyone else seems to have also :- (

 

Congratulations to all.

Ok guys , I finished the totals for this round

 

Final%20Results%20total%20v1_zpsnol834z6.jpg

 

Congrats to Snurfen , Mtucker and Gas4it.

 

All 3 cars were great to drive with little problems with those darned esses. It will be interesting when they meet Mel's track as it is a bit more tighter than mine in places. Snurfens car may have an advantage as its been there before so his driver and navvy have the edge over the others. I will take a podium shot of the cars and post it up as well.

 

I may be looking at changing the middle section of my track in the future as it is showing its age. I will put up some car info over the next couple of days . But most of the cars were fun to drive with little problems. It was more of the course that bit this time rather than the cars with problems .I think Mark (Miveson) is still doing our points tally :huh: so I'll leave it up to him to post it up.

 

I have to admit I get a bit disheartened with the amount of use my rally track gets as the only time its being used these days is in proxy's .Don't get me wrong as it is a bit of a job setting it up and having to pull it down to get the road track back in the garage especially in times of rain but I enjoy doing the Proxy's both WRP and OZ as I get to drive other cars and see how different set ups work and don't work and also seeing which tyre compounds work as well. Any way enough whinging from me as its off to Mels next for Rnd 2 of this years WRP . All the best to all involved both entered and hosting . May the best French car win :P:D:lol:

 

Cheers Craig

Cheers Craig. Thanks for getting things up and running. Will be interesting to see how things pan out from here. Congratulations to those at the pointy end. Loks like the poms have started where they left off.......

 

Oh, maybe you need a smaller track (or a bigger house)

Thanks Craig for running the round, I think I may have put bigger spaces on the axles to try and keep the gear mesh tight than I needed too. Unfortunately the car never turned a wheel on a track before i posted it.

 

Congrats to the podium and all the other competitors too!

 

Cheers

Ryan

Have we a schedule of up coming rounds yet???
