Chris's track is the first time we're raced these cars on copper tape and even though the voltage was set at 13.5v most of the cars felt sluggish. The biggest exceptions were Shaynus, Lancealot and the taxi. These 3 cars loved the power. 

Going into the race I was pretty sure my car would finish down the field but pleasantly surprised the guys got it into the 4.8's.

Brumos had the fastest lap time but you had to concentrate to get consistently good laps. 

Sticks car was like driving a drift car, absolutely no grip.

Great racing ArroldN, Sports Racer and 32coupe.  Less than 6 laps between 1st and 10th and a lot of cars swapping spots up and down the grid.  Great builds everyone.  Told you guys look out for ArroldN he builds narrow monsters that scream.  Hey by the way I need 1 point for top qualifier.  I need every point I can get with you guys.  Keep having fun

We're really having fun racing these cars. Even the slow ones aren't too slow and the middle ground cars occasionally surprise us when we run them on different tracks.


May the downforce be with you.

There were some real surprises on Chris's track. It's good fun to run but really rewards handling and grip. Almost all cars made it into the 4.9s in the middle lane but the successful ones had grip on all three. Local MJK tyres worked best.

I kept asking who had something for Paul. Surprised that it was me:D. Thanks to the crew that ran this round. Glad to see my Taxi take the checked flag in the first position. Congratulations to my podium mates. Wow I can talk Assie :o Way to go Lance on getting in the top 5. Hope the car can get a few more podiums before the season ends.

Lucky I gave you all a head start after my penalties, but I'm on my way up the list now.

Let's see if I can end up giving Paul a run for his money before the end of the proxy.

Thanks to all those involved running the night. Looks like a great track! Looks like my bus likes running at 13.5 V and wasn't an embarrassing handful (for a change!). Out of curiosity, what sort of range of voltages are some of the other tracks run at?

Thanks for the videos, and well done to those at the pointy end of the field!

Thanks for the run gents. Another midfield run for my jalopy. Congrats to ArroldN on the win, good to see a little shake up.

 

Regards,

Rico

All the tracks we race on are 12v except Chris's. Even with 13.5v it felt like 11v, probably because the track is copper tape with no power taps.

Your Audi is a quick car and has been on all the tracks we've raced on - check the fastest lap times. It just isn't reliable. It will come off without warning even though it drove through that corner at the same speed for the last 5 laps. When it does that a few times you lose confidence in the car so drive it much slower. 


May the downforce be with you.

Will it looks like we are half way through this proxy and Paul is showing us the way.  I hope I can have a car that is more respectable in the final 5 events.  Please have fun guys!!!!
