2021 Touring Car Proxy Round 2 - Andrew's track

Recommended Posts

Racing will be on Wednesday night.

We were supposed to be racing yesterday (Sunday) but a couple of the guys weren't feeling well. Andrew ran each car for a couple of laps to get a feel and see if any had any issues. All the cars ran well and Andrew commented that they were all better than last year's cars. 

He did say give him 30 min and he could get some of the middle runners on the the winners podium. :D

I'm just hoping the Orange Merc gets to show it's true potential - it should go quite well on Andrew's track...


Cheers,

 

Tony.

 

There's only two questions:

 

1. What direction do you go

2. What's the Lap Record?

Andrew loves your car, says it would clean up in a Slot.it only proxy.

On that, how easy would it be to put a simple spec list together of each entry, just to add a bit of context to results? 

Have fun tonight!

Andrew's post race review. 

As he's the track owner and has the 1st place car i thought who better to review each car.

Thanks to all involved for putting on the round, and congrats to the podiumites....

Thanks for the kind words re: my entry...

It'll take quite an impressive effort to take on the locals.... send 'em up here to see how they do 'out of their comfort zone'......


Cheers,

 

Tony.

Man I got to do better. Looks like the White Taxi from last year was the better car. I have to wait and see how this plays out to determine my move for 2022

 Hi Guys 

We haven't seen any videos or numbers for a while, so I thought I would do some numbers  based on the data we have.

So about the only thing I came up with is an efficiency percentage,  based on laps you have done in the race and a theoretical lap score (TLS) based on the your fastest lap time

e.g for 32coupe   laps 60.43              fastest lap 5.623

So from that we can find a theoretical lap score (TLS), The time of the race 360 sec is divided by fastest lap  360/5.623 = 64.02

so then you can divide the actual laps by the TLS in this case  60.43 / 64.02 = .944 or 94.4%

so here's the list

 

Name                            Laps                 fastest lap                               TLS              Efficiency percentage

 

32coupe                         60.44                     5.623                                  64.02                      94.4%

Alvaro                             59.84                     5.682                                 63.36                      94.44%

Seems like your bored sticks of the whole scene chuckle , this series is over and dusted the leading 3 cars have no competition, out on their own, and i do wonder why they are so far out in front.

The real racing looks to be in the middle , through no fault of Paul's well not on this one a proxy needs to have regular updates and info , found before Covid interest was waining in proxy racing generally , you could see by the entries , then the costs of sending cars , from here is just about finishing my interest, and that's without all the problems when the cars got there.

Think our 3 cars left here pretty early in the year, and everything is Covid affected , i did want to withdraw our 3 cars when the mag issue arrived , but Paul sort of talked me out of it , wished i had now , only left them there as it was John's and Dixies first time , well it has turned into the one and only time .

Sorry guys, I've been busy with a few things in real life.

Now that the covid restrictions have eased I was finally able to drive down with my boys to spend some time with my wife who's working in Melbourne 800 ks away. We haven't seen her in 2 months and she's much more important than racing toy cars. 

Our cars are quick because we're racing on our home ground. We have tested our cars on these tracks but they still aren't as quick as Radarek's cars which dominated this proxy for the first 2 years, and he's never seen our tracks.

If someone wants to run a similar proxy on their local tracks I'll be the first to build a car and send it and because it's only a toy car I won't care about who builds a better car that suits their local tracks. That's what proxy racing is all about, you build a car as best as you can and compare it against other builders. And you learn a little bit more each year. There will always be cars faster and some that are slower but they are still only toy cars.

If anyone wants to withdraw let me know and I'll get their car in the post.

Next round will be next weekend.

Cheers

Paul

Sticks, I love the efficiency percentage.

It shows which cars are easy to drive fast. Something that isn't easy to quantify but definitely relates to proxy cars.

Will be interesting to see if these numbers change much as the proxy continues.

Well said Paul,I think some people are in Proxy racing for different reasons to me.I personally love building slot cars & it's a bonus if a group of guys want to go to the trouble of racing them on 10 different tracks ,doing video's & reporting on how each car goes just shows their passion for the hobby.

My cars are very different to the competition & is a challenge to compete with them,some of my best slot races have been sitting in front of my computer watching a stranger drive one of my cars & if they give my car a compliment then I'm a winner.:D

Keep up the good work Paul,really appreciate all the time & effort you put in to this Proxy.

PS I'm a bit worried about Sticksy,I think the air might be a bit thin up on his mountain retreat:DDo offs get factored in to the Einstein equation:blink:

Cheers Jimmy:D

I agree with jimmyslots.  This is my first proxy and I'm loving it.  Seeing my car finish a race is a bonus, not to mention being so far up in the field (at the moment). Appreciate all the work involved.  Keep it up.

Thanks

Thanks Paul,  It's great to hear you can finally visit your family since Australia has eased COVID restrictions.

I m not sure what or why Mr Gunn is having some issues? Maybe it is UK humor? Need to loosen your drawers?

home track has big advantages, car tuned on these tracks are going to be at the top. It is expected. They tune all types of cars and run on these tracks consistantly, so their car and tuning is going to be better than someone that has never seen or driven the track. That is proxy racing.

This proxy is far from being over (only round 2 completed, 8 more to go), Australia seems to have the tightest Covid restrictions, so that is why the proxy and reporting seems slow (I am sure that is OK with all of us). 

The proxy seemed to have a slow start, but Paul was waiting for all the cars to arrive. I sent my car to australia 2-3 weeks before shipping deadline, it took 62 days to arrive. 

This proxy is the only one that has had regular reporting (before covid), and race videos on almost every track. This year race 2 has had a commentary of the cars, sometimes helpful on each car.  Not many proxies have a body off reveal at the end of the series, Paul did it last year and i am sure he will do it again.

Looking at race 2 results, Mr Gunn is at the top of all the UK entries and above most of the other entries from around the world, (so quit complaining).

If you wish to withdraw you car, you can, but it already there and lets see what shakes out. (I don't know you but now I hope you don't withdraw so i can watch and see my car beat yours).
