2020 Touring Car Proxy shakedown run

Recommended Posts

Here's the times for each car on my little test figure 8. This was done last night on a cold track and the cars weren't cleaned so don't read too much into the times.

fetch?id=1664864&d=1597880604

I'll take photos of the underside of each car so you can see what chassis they are running.

On the weekend I'll redo the shakedown run with each car's tyres cleaned (roll them on sticky tape) and post videos and comments. The results of that run will determine the starting order for Round 1.

Cheers

Paul

What tyres are you running?

Your car was silky smooth to drive. Probably the quietest car in the group.

Yay - Tony's the fastest so far... :D

Er, yeah - the other Tony..... :rolleyes: as usual...

 

Cheers, Tony.


Cheers,

 

Tony.

 

There's only two questions:

 

1. What direction do you go

2. What's the Lap Record?

Well looks like my Alfa will be in the hunt.B) I sure hope so. Tony, Tony, Tony. 3 cars in front of me and about 5 cars right on the bumper. If this was without cleaning the tires no telling how things will shake out. Thanks for the preliminary shake down.

UM Tony on NSR Rubber. I hope what I read about Urethane/Yellow Dogs being the tire of choice is true. "Only Time Will Tell" :D

Your Alfa was weird to drive. It felt like it had no weight to it and "floated" through the corners. With most cars you can feel how heavy they are when you drive them so it's easy to get them to drift. Yours felt like it would easily tip over before it would hang the tail out but it kept on hanging on. 

These times don't mean much. There are a few Canberra cars in the proxy and testing on the real tracks show they are faster than mine.

A much better test is how long it takes to do 15 laps on my track.

Looking at past event seems the stronger cars at the start can go of a bit towards the end , mainly due to tyres being to small at the start gentlemen, look up the history chuckle.

The shakedown run has been done. This is the qualifying order for the first race next week - Wednesday 2nd September at Alvaro's track.

fetch?id=1665015&d=1598241795

 

Brumos was the fastest, doing 15 laps in 34.29 seconds on my little test track.

fetch?filedataid=50018&type=full

I took videos of each car + comments when doing the qualifying. I just need to work out how to import 18 x 70 Mb files to yahoo. :wacko:

Cheers

Videos and comments of each car during the shakedown run.

Youtube is giving me grief trying to view all of these. Some work, some don't but they are all public.

nice job on the videos Paul, some quick cars in this lot.

The squeak is probably rubbing rear tyre I would think, could be front axle rubbing on the grub screws perhaps????

Good luck to everyone in the race

It's the rear right tyre rubbing. I'll put a spacer on the axle to limit the sideways movement.

It's not a performance mod but it will stop someone getting the sh*ts with the noise and wanting to throw the car through the window. :D

slowest car but on the video it looks stable and easy to drive... let see if the inverse gear does not kill the pinion before the end of the season.

I'm not able to view the results, it starts to come up but then goes away and I see this: fetch?filedataid=50018&type=full

I can watch the videos and looked like an ok run but they all look pretty good.

 

Regards

Rico

Curef, your car was easy to drive, slight noise when turning left, like it was skipping across the track. 

Will be totally different on another surface so don't be too disenchanted with your slow lap time on my track.

Rico, your car was 4th fastest.

You qualified 13th, took 0.7 seconds longer to do 15 laps than 5th place qualifier so it's close.

Round 1 is tomorrow, that's when we find out who has the fast cars. :D
