A couple of comments
Car#46 rear tyres were rubbing the body,since ground clearence was over 2mm i sanded them down and now ok.
Car#37 after a manual check i found that front axle was binding,dismantled it and found that some hair was trapped in the tube removed it and now ok but then i found the rear axle was binding and the worst news is that one of the axle holders was broken,i superglued the bushing and reinforced it with baking powder ,i believe it will hold now.

Top 10 cars all Ferraris interesting had a feeling after last year this year this would be a Ferrari domination as shakedown is showing and as the series progress cars will get faster, would still like to see a tyre chart if possible please Alexis.

I still have no news from cars
#20
#58
#60
but since postmen are on strike this week i decided to wait a little more but we are definitely racing next week.Since we are behind schedule i will try to race both rounds in the same week,Monday and Wednesday.Another problem that surfaced is that Chaitas racing Garden track that was intended to be used for round 1 this week has been discovered during Sundays LMP race to be very dirty (it emerged that works took place the premises and the track was left uncovered).I consider this a danger to the cars so the first 2 rounds will be held on Hellenic Slot Car Club's Ninco track where shakedown was run and Nick's wooden track.

about dirty track, i can only advise the use of sticky roller... the other option is 50 laps of BRM group C with few water clean up of the tires in between :).
Interested to see this serie starting as i have no time to race here.

I have compiled a first tech data table with what is available so far.I did not want to unscrew chassis afraid of tampering with screw settings,(but this is a job i will do before i return the cars at the end of the series) so the table contains what can be seen from the outside.You are kindly requested to supply the missing data where this is possible.I am open to requests for additional info needed.

Please keep in mind that the column RPM motor does not reflect the actual motor rpm but it is calculated by wheel rpm and transmission ratio,there are cases,like car #4,that transmission is very tight and acts as a brake to motor

Hi Alexis.

I do not recall gearing of my Ferrari 250 GTO No.72 but I am pretty sure 9T pinion with possibly offset 27T contrate - 3:1. Think I replaced original guide with standard Slot-it GC guide. Sure I told you this but you may have noticed Sebring chassis has been cut down to reduce weight.

All tyres are Ninco.

Hope this is of some help.

Regards Charles Le Breton
