Nice videos - apart from some entries being insanely quick... :o :unsure:

In reference to my car - I liked your comment "Better than last year's car.. " - well, I was following your recommendations...  ;)


Cheers,

 

Tony.

 

There's only two questions:

 

1. What direction do you go

2. What's the Lap Record?

thanks Paul, some pretty fast cars in this lot, those slotit 21K motors seem to have a stack of magnetic effect. I think your right about the tire rubbing on one side, it was pretty close and I did profile the edges both sides and it's probably still touching, hopefully it will wear itself some clearance

disappointed with the first test result... i was hoping to see the clio higher in the ranking but from 2.26 onward the cars look to be close enough.

well, let see after the first run as i did build it to be easy to drive. 

The noise is coming from the from zero grip tires, no worry on my side.

Really great to see the entries and how they are running on your figure 8 test track. I was afraid to comment  as I was not sure if the two cars from the islands would make it.  We hope that they will be respectable. There is a saying you save the best for the last … will looking at how fast the cars are in your videos that would be unlikely.  We all hope that there will be time for you to “stretch the legs” of these cars in the near future.

There is a sneak preview of the final two cars running round the loops on Paul's YouTube channel.

I’ve added the video to the first post. Just need to work out how to use my iPad to edit the lap times neatly to put Aloha at 2.41 and Lance at 2.19. For 2 cars that look identical they are so different to drive. It’s as if they were deliberately built at opposite ends of a scale to make sure one of them would do well no matter what track they race on.


May the downforce be with you.

Thanks Paul. Intresting about the rear wings on the cars. I did not think i packed them that tight, but with something like 58 days shipping over seas, anything can happen.

No good news on the lockdown front sorry.

We have at least another two weeks before any changes.

We are aloud to have gatherings of up to five people, but only in open air places.

Continue to stay safe with lockdown.  I hear this thing typically stops at the front door, but on occasion has a mind of its own and enters buildings.  I believe the builders are completely comfortable with waiting for the optimal time while thinking of your safety first.   Have a great weekend which you Aussie’s have already started of course.

I just looked at last years 'Figure of 8' qualifying times, and this year the range of times seem to be around 0.2s quicker.

And I might try and work out how representative the qualifying order was last year in relation to the end of series leaderboard...

So last year went something like this...first column Figure of 8 position, second column Race Series position

Fo8 - RS

1 - 4th

2 - 1st

3 - 7th

4 - 8th

5 - 18th

6 - 6th

7 - 11th

8 - 5th

9 - 14th

10 - 2nd

11 - 3rd

12 - 13th

13 - 10th

14 - 9th

15 - 15th

16 - 17th

17 - 16th

18 - 12th

So there were some movers, and some stayers...no real pattern!

This year there are so many cars with similar times on the test track it can only mean one thing.

Every race is going to be close.

I’m predicting this year it will go down to the final race.
