International Proxy Series 2020 score and tech

Recommended Posts

 Because of the covid situation i had decided to run 4 rounds in Athens but my plans failed:
-The most interesting would be a brand new Policar track but the owner had to deal with serious(noncovid)health issues of one of his family members so i would not dare asking to run he race we had agreed
-i could race solo a 3rd Ninco track, but racing 2 races solo proved quite exausting ,and one more Ninco track would not provide additonal information.

Some comments:
-the J _R motor seems more consistent than the BWA and my feeling is that the cars are more pleasent to drive with 1,5-2k of additional rpm.Exceptions
--- (A)car #1 11280 rpm it is either a faulty motor or my tachometers error but especially on Creative Hobby track if felt slow on the long straight and
--- (B) car #2 16762 rpm lucky you Kevan
-it looks that gear ratio 9/24 is the way to go.The cars affected most by wrong ratio are 28,87,658,11,86,i have the feeling they could be fighting for podiums

Below is a table showing scores after 2 races and car data.Please help me to fill the blanks.There could also be some mistake in pinion count ,please correct me,it wasnt easy counting teeth without removing which did not.Car 98 is missing pinion and crown data because it has a Policar gearbox and it is impossible to count without removal.

Time to start packing.
P.S. smile.png there a couple of cars we would like to keep permanently here but not his time: 21 and 87 for me and 5 for Nick

Thanks Alexis, cars #2, #15 & #658 are in class F not M

The four IoM entries motors came together, it's interesting they range so much in rpm, when it was new the motor in the #2 Corvette was running at 14k...it did a LOT of testing/running in and wore a set of tyres out, mainly due to it being so enjoyable to drive.

As far as additional info on the cars:

#2 is a Revell/Monogram body, has a Slotingplus guide and Pendle tyres.

#87 has a Slotingplus guide and Pendle tyres.

#658 is a Scalextric, has a Slotingplus guide and Pendle tyres.

#28 maybe a SlotIt guide but has Pendle tyres.

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