Aussies rule top 6 all Aussies and big gap opening up think the rest of us are doing something wrong here , did think this series would be a lot closer being the first year and using the same machinery , think we lesser mortals need more feed back , heard it all about differant track conditions , drivers e.t.c but you can't escape the facts that the top 4 cars are more consistant that's why they are there , were at half distance and if this carrys on some of us will be over 100 points behind by the end so hosts and drivers can we have some critical feed back please, so we can try to put up a better show if there's a next time .

As I said a few posts ago:-

"I'll do an in-depth service check on all cars at this point and as part of that will produce a table of results and comments."

I'll be spending a couple of days on this and testing the cars.

The main issue with a few cars is that they are great to drive and quite predictable, in fact they feel like they are on rails, but can hop out of the slot on a tight corner, or where there is a quick change of direction. They basically lull you into a false sense of security and next thing you know, they are "off". I know Steve and Mike B also found this. There are no cars which actually handle badly...! I have found them more comfortable to drive in general than the SCX's overall, but time-wise the top cars are about 0.1/0.2 seconds per lap down on the top SCX's on Ballayorkley - but then the SCX's had a few years' development.

More over the next couple of days.

Cheers
Dave

Hahahahaha you must be as i hadn't noticed Gary, i do feel we need as much feed back as possible all through the series especially in this first year , some of us have no idea of initial set up for wood tracks as a lot of us run on plastic as in my case all my cars are set up on Carrera , i want as much fault finding as possible about my cars as from that i can pick up where i can improve , i know Dave has said he'll do a report on all the cars and that's great , but we or i would like more info from this series as it goes on from all venues if possible to make a better car, for instance Martyn said the cars from down under are heavier than the cars we entered but didn't give a figure of how much heavier which is not a criticsm of Martyn at all just these sort of things would be useful to make a more competative series.
As these cars travel around the venues the hosts and drivers can actually see what works and what does not, so if they are entered in the WRP they can see what is what and improve their entries that way, we cannot do that , i try to enter a competative car in all the proxies i enter and after a season or two generally they are not bad but all these improvements to those cars came from feed back, i am not whinging or moaning just would like to improve . :)

I will be weighing all cars....but unless I have to open any up for repairs, clearly I can't see what work has been done inside.

I will also look at ride height and various other factors.

Hi Gazza and all.

For weights see posts 1 and 18 under "WRP Shakedown". Snurfen was by far the lightest at 90gms with Peter G at 97. Most of Aussie and Kiwi cars were between 103 and 108gms.

Neither IOM cars weights were provided.

Regards Chas Le Breton

Hi guys

Chas - The IoM cars were withdrawn, as I couldn't get them to handle, so there are no weights for them. I still can't get them to handle.

Alexis - I said in a previous post that we were unable to take photos or video in Round 5, due to time constraints, but that there will be photos and video for each track in the remaining rounds. All cars will be covered....

Stage 1 results from Rd 6, plus photos/videos follow in the next couple of days.

Cheers
Dave

Ballyorkley is a very photogenic track, so the cars will look great on it.

Good work Dave and the IoM gang, look forward to the next round.
