My main fear for my car is that the superglue I used on the rear tires will crumble away and we have hoppy and skippy instead of zip and zap

Qualifying has been run .. Enjoyed running the cars , a couples of surprises , and fast cars .. But on the whole i thought the quality of cars for the first time this proxy is being run was good .... alot of good handling cars , some minor changes to some , mainly in gear ratio to give you a little more top end ,
but it's all a learning curve .....

Round race will be run later tonight .... hope to have results up late tonight or tomorrow morning .. Adding some general shots of the cars . hope to add more with results posting later .

I think the rear axle might have come out of alignment, I had that problem in testing, thought I had fixed it.
Might be that the chassis has cracked, It just happened on my IPS entry, not a good year this year.

Could you please have a look to see what might be causing it?

Round 2 has been put in the books , It was an interesting round , a few surprises and a few guys struggled with grip , which can be seen in the laps count for a couple of cars ... But over all i enjoyed the chance to race this awesome group of cars , each with their own character which makes the fun and interesting to drive ....
Results and Pics to follow .... If you guys want any further input on how your car ran just ask ....

Nitro
Thank you for a great run and may I acknowledge the othe podium finishers as well. There is certainly some close matches throughout the field.
On a sidebar we were spared here on Oahu from the 30+ inches of rain that fell on the island of Kauai in a 24hour period. I have lived here all my life and never seen anything like that, including hurricanes....we should never under estimate Mother Nature
Now back to racing. If there is anything you feel can be done to improve #2 please let me know as I need to catch up to Mr Gas4it, by the way we all have an uphill challenge. Oh it’s fun and you never know what will come next.
Aloha
Dale

Thanks for the round, Nitro.

I am happy with my midfield position...my tires must be still sticking to the rims.

Glad you enjoyed the experience.....Fords forever!!!

I am a bit suprised to be up there in the company of the mighty Falcons with my narrower Pioneer Camero , obviously lacking a bit of outright pace to get any higher but a good learning curve for 2019. :)

Congrats to the podium sitters, well done, thanks to nitro and crew for running the round
seems the big Falcons have the edge on the rest of the field

look forward to the next round to see how the sierra stacks up

thanks Nittro0440 and your team of keen helpers
I am sitting mid pack still so I am happy with that

Aloha and Gas41T are always going to hard to beat no matter what car they run
they are both excellent car builders

on the high note for me my Ford GT40 MK11 in the Ford v Porsche proxy that was just run on Munters track got on the podium with a 2nd place out of 39 cars

Glad to hear your ok and survived the heavy rain .. regarding your car , not alot more you can do , it runs pretty sweet , maybe play around with weight placement in the car so it's a little more balanced in the corners .
