Hi Dale

It's 1.8m x 4.8m no banked corners. Surface is interior semi gloss.

Cheers

Andrew

 

Ps: expect my car to do well on this track.

Cars in finishing order. I didn't put ALS's car in the right spot, it should be in 13th - I had to add a lap, see the video of his race.

Congratulations to Peter Gunn and Jimmy in joining me on the podium. 

Some cars did not like this track at all. The tyres on Stick's car would not grip no matter how many times we cleaned them (used sticky tape). You couldn't put the power down too early on ALS's car coming out of corners because it would go sideways. Reek's still bunny hopped when you put down the power. Lance's drove great but would surprise you by coming out unexpectedly. Shaynus's just kept coming out. Brumos's was a handful (it's a very light car) and you need to turn the power right down on your controller to drive it well.

The rest of the cars didn't have any vices, they just drove at the level they were capable of.

Shaynus, Pepsi, Lancealot

 

Bov, Curef, Sticks

 

Brumos, ArroldN, Supercharged

 

Reek, Peter Gunn, Jimmy.

Good race between Peter G and Reek. I really need to find a video camera instead of my phone so I can film longer videos.

 

32coupe, Alvaro, Aloha

 

Dave P, ALS, Sports Racer. 

We had fun racing the cars.

Cheers

Paul

Thanks for the run Paul & friends & congrats on another win with Mr Gunn keeping you on your toes.

The Frog continues to improve on last years results with 2 laps more & 87.77 laps would have placed it 3rd last year just in front of Rossco:D

Cheers Jimmy:D

Your next year car better be the best you've ever built.

It still won't be good enough to stay with what I'm currently testing. :D

This is what I like to see, people pushing the envelope with their chassis development B)

Unfortunately, it seems I've torn  and scrunched up the envelope with mine this year. :huh: Oh well, definitely a learning experience! :rolleyes:

The trick is to start with your fastest car and put a touring car body on it. Then test / modify / test / modify and repeat until you go WOW.

Then hope your WOW is better than anyone else's. :)

I'm turning my fastest Sideways Group 5 into a touring car. Probably a Renault Clio body.
