IPS 2020 round 1 Nick's track

Recommended Posts

After all this delay we finally got racing.And then again everything went wrong.Going to Nick I got trapped in a traffic jam due to an accident,was stuck there for more than 1 hour.As  a result we could race only 2 lanes ,will do the rest tuesday.Then my cameras battery run out of power and I had not my charger,result only 4 photos.On top of everything else I left the memory stick withthe files  on Nick's laptop,he will email me them during the day.So here is an appetizer

We had 3 casualties,#20 and #15 the pinion slipped after 4 and 7 laps respectively,#27 (Nick'scar ) slipped through his hand and ended up on the floor,broken post.We could not repair them in place but will do today and run the missed lanes on tuesday.

The car that stands  out is #21 fast ,stable in a class of its own.The Lancia  was lacking grip.The yellow Jag and the open top Porsche were sliding sideways under braking resulting to a costly(time wise) deslot on straight line under the bridge.

Results of the first 2 lanes

Some comments on the cars

#98 she will catch you by surprise and roll

#12 slides sideways under braking

#28 Jag ditto

#71 no grip

#111 could use some more grip

#99 was running reverse,,each time we had to switch track direction

#20 pinion slipped.I have already fixed it but crown  rotates out of round and I am afraid it is going to happen again

It is the best  grid since I took ever both performance wise and looks

Expect the lack of grip is due to the amount of time the car has been waiting to get going when it left here was spot on, same as it always was Alexis , should get better with use.

Wouldn't it be easier to flip the motor wires on the #99


If you have everything under control you're not trying hard enough

Race results and comments:

Nick drove lanes black and  blue and I drove  yellow and red.Blue and red were the 2 inside lanes at the hairpin following downhill section which favored cars with good brakes:

658 ,the car that suffered most at the hairpin

111 good car 

99 gearing seems  wrong could use a higher ratio

98 a beauty but it got you by surprise and rolled

87 good car given the width and height excellent

86 needs a bit more attention to the front end could eliminate the offs

71 I dont think the sprung guide is a good idea

66 good car finished 12th in 2018 now 6th

40 too much body rock tyres rubbing the body

28 Alpine good car given the width and height excellent

28 Jaguar very good car but sideways braking gave 2 very costly deslots on straight line at the downhill section

27 good car but cound not beat 21 for slimlin class honors

21 I wish I could build chassislike this,if fited with a big motor it would be in a class of its own

20 the pinion slipped 3 times then I had to retire the car.The crown rotates out of round and I think this is the reason

19 needs attention to the front end ,it is the cause of so many offs

18 it was quite a surprise as I had not touched it after the 1000 laps test,it makes me consider making 1000 laps run in a standard procedure

15 hoping rear end needs attention

12 ery good car but sideways braking gave 2 very costly deslots on straight line at the downhill section

11 very good car

5 Lotus  front end needs attention

5 Daytona,very good car,Nick loved it

2 Very smooth and considering front engine perfect

1 Very good car but I takes a couple of laps until you feel cnfident

Team slot version is the A110S.

i know, and this is why i am not using it for the last two... but i think i will request an exemption next year again! Who knows, someone may say yes. i am even happy to reduce the wheel arch to make it look like an A110 instead of A110S as i did for our home Adelaide small touring race!

I think Curef99 has been on about this car for years now, let's face it there is not a good French car , so just build a normal car chuckle :lol:

I just checked through the eligible car list and the team slot A110S is specifically excluded.

Hi Alexis , what is happening with the IPS races this year , in my opinion it,s about time we sorted it out as it,s really not going to happen as it usually does , so might be an idea to call it a day and post our cars back please, there is to much going on in each country concerning the virus and everyones safety must come first.

Perhaps 2021 might be a better year but i doubt it but you never know regards.

This is where the Touring Car Proxy has been good. All rounds are held in the same city so we can get through the whole proxy in a few months.

Sending the Touring Cars overseas last year to do the Canadian and USA rounds was a mistake. It slowed the proxy down and I had a lot of complaints.

I know this is the International Proxy Series but it might be time to limit the number of countries.

Cheers

Paul

PS. Where are the videos? A real proxy has lots of videos. :D

May the downforce be with you.
