My car was 3 seconds a lap slower on stage 2 seems a big difference?

Not really, i was driving that stage :)

 

I think Mel got discombobulated cutting and pasting from different spreadsheets.


Quickly read this post before it is deleted or i turn grey again

Thanks Mel for giving my car a run, and congrats to the podiumites...

Even though it's one of the 'quicker' cars laptime wise, it just doesn't seem to want to be at the top.

 

I think that next year, it may be NC5 time instead of the Fly 15k...

With quite a few cars running much more powerful motors, I suspect that the voltage has lowered slightly on most tracks, which is hurting it.

Hopefully the NC5 will give it a little more pace on the bigger tracks, and be more consistent on the smaller ones.

Interesting Rusty, always run with Ninco 5,s in the OZ and always start of badly every season , and does not get going until round 4 for some odd reason , when you look at this year it,s exactly the same as previous years results wise , did think of changing motors to see if i could get a good start to the series for a change , i think it,s horses for courses some car motor combinations work well on some tracks but not others and it,s also in the gearing i cannot gear a car to go well on every track so i compromise on trying to be smooth .

The great variation in tracks is what makes this event so interesting.

Shelmore Rally is a very tight track and the cars need plenty of grip.

It is not until the cars get to Mel's can they stretch there legs a it.

Mel's track incorporates part of the road course . These guys also do a lot of rally driving, so know the tracks very well.

Gazzas track will possably change all the results again , just to keep things interesting.

The NC5 is really a good alround choice, both my cars this year are over powered, being run almost as they were brought.

Historics series results now availabe (I ignored Mel's final calculations and worked it out using the Stage 1 and 2).

 

Thanks Mark. I have just arrived home after being out west all week. I rushed to post the results a few minutes before leaving last Sunday.

 

Copying "formula" cells in Excel and not pasting as "value" caught me out :angry:

The 18 car had way too much grunt for this rally track. Tried to trim it with the controller - would needed to turn the power supply to 9/9.5v

The 12 car went well in both warm ups and stage 2 but for some reason lost it a few times too many on two or three conservative laps. My tack allows some good speed with some cars for most most laps but at times that can come back and bite ya. Craig and Gazza may add to this. The next round at Gazza's will see the cat amongst the pidgins.

Well done Mel, you killed it.

Thanks Ben.

 

Of all the proxy's over the years I don't think I have never had my own car win a stage let alone #1 on the podium on my own track
