Well, the racing has been done and we had a great time driving your cars. Apart from a few that had problems all the cars were a pleasure to race.

Here's the podium.

Race results. These are preliminary as I forgot to take Arroldn's car. It will be raced tomorrow night and added to the results. There's also penalties to be applied as a few cars have front wheels that don't comply to the rules (too small) and some cars have tyres that extend past the guards.

Curef99 will need a gear change. I'll see what I have in my spares and get it back into racing mode.

ALS had tyre problems. After 2 laps one of the rear tyres kept lifting. It's a different size to the other rear tyre and not the right size for the rim. I temporarily fit one of my spare NSR tyres on so it could race but it had a different diameter to the other rear tyre so handling wasn't as good as it should have been. May need both rear tyres replaced which will incur a 5 point penalty.

Reek's car has a problem. You couldn't give it full power out of the corners because it would bounce almost out of the slot. Something's not right and I'll check what's causing it and report.

As for the rest of you, well done, all your cars were great to drive.

Videos to come.

Cheers

Paul

i did gamble with using the gear in the opposite direction, but i run few short 2mn events here without problem... i did not expect to brake on the first race. Amazing. conclusion: do not gamble guys!!! :)

Thanks for the run Paul & helpers.

Happy with the Meganes result & if it continues to be a top 10 place will most definately return next year with much LIGHTER  Plafit chassis.

Happy with the Plafit Pointer motor & with a trip to weight watchers should liven up the Frog:D.

Bring on Rd 2 

Cheers Jimmy:D

I've got a spec sheet done, just got to work out how to add it here.

Arrold, it was easy to leave your car out when it looks like a taxi. :D

Well that's not encouraging news. Is the suspension winding up and releasing due to excessive grip? Thanks to the gang for running this round and hopefully it performs better on the 2nd and gives me a birthday present.

Regards

Rico

Rico, as soon as you accelerate the car starts to bounce. We had to turn the power down to the lowest setting on our controllers to drive your car and even then it wasn't enough. I'll have a look at it and let you know if something came loose inside or is rubbing.

Cheers

Paul

Not a problem, there's nothing worse than building a great car only to have something come loose and make your proxy experience absolute crap.

Videos of the race. I had to limit it to 1.5 minutes recording because my phone doesn't have a low res recording function and 1.5 min is 400 Mb.

The first race (ALS, Pepsi, Shaynus) I filmed with my tablet and it didn't work so switched to my phone. Sorry, no video of ALS, Pepsi or Shaynus.

Here's the ones that worked.

The start of the Bov, Lance & Aloha heat video reminded me of the start of the V8SUPERCAR race at Townsville on Saturday!  :D

Thanks for taking the time to post the videos.

Obviously you will need to find a high speed video recorder to film my car, mine must have been too quick to be picked up by the one you used that night!! :P

Once again, thanks to all those involved in running these nights, I hope you had fun.

Because your car was in the first heat (slowest qualifiers) it had to be run with the fastest cars (last heat) to complete it's run on all 3 lanes. It was keeping up with Brumos's car which is pretty good considering how well that car goes. BUT........ it has a nasty habit of coming out of the slot unexpectedly even though you drive it exactly the same speed through the corner for the last 5 laps.Once it does this a few times you lose all confidence in the car and drive it slowly. 


May the downforce be with you.

I ran ArroldN's taxi last night and did 83 laps which puts it in 8th spot.

Here's the "official" results now that all the cars have been run.
