2021 Touring Car Proxy Round 5 - Matt's

Recommended Posts

Round 5 will be tomorrow on Matt's track

fetch?id=1667545&d=1604296902

It may be simple looking but has a few surprises when trying for a quick lap. Underpowered but good handling cars usually do well here.

Cheers

Paul

The only casualty was Pepsi's rear tyre.

I know it started the race ok so somewhere during racing it managed to lose part of it's tyre. This is what happens to urethane tyres if you clean them with shellite or some other petrol based solution. I'll replace both rears with a set of used MJK's. I've got heaps of MJK's.


May the downforce be with you.

Hi Paul,

 

Thanks for the update! Congrats to the brothers K for the formation finish and to Dixie for completing the podium. Thanks to all involved in putting on the round.

Pleased with my entries result - possibly one of it's better results of the ⅝

Cheers,

 

Tony.

 

There's only two questions:

 

1. What direction do you go

2. What's the Lap Record?

And now for the videos of each car.

 

ALS, Pepsi and curef.

You can see that Pepsi's car was running ok at this stage.

 

Shaynus, Arrold and BARacer.

 

old man, Brumos and JohnnieE.

 

Peter Gunn, Nonfractual and Aloha.

 

Peter Gunn, sticks and curef. I have no idea why it filmed sideways. Just proves that I shouldn't quit my day job. :D

 

Alvaro, Supercharged and Nev.

 

Dixie, DP201 and bov.

 

Sports, 32coupe and Brooksy. And no, the video isn't sped up, this is how quick the cars are at the pointy end of the field. :lol:

 

Sports, lancelot and Jimmy.

Thank you Gentlemen for running the round.Congratulations to our podium builders, Sports Racer, 32 Coupe and Dixie.  Apparently, my Clio needs more short tracks in its life in order to race where I expected it to.  Thank your for getting everything out of 8t that you could.

Hi Sports Racer. Loved the videos. Well done. What sort of operatus do you use to get such great shots. Just like being there watching the racing. Regards Charles Le Breton

Thanks to the team and Paul for running the round, congrats to those up on the podium steps.

Those tyres must have been an old pair of PGT I had, sadly that might explain some of the crappy performance of the car, Thanks for finding some replacement MJK's I would have some here too if needed I can send them down to you.

Time for a new car for next year's series, Nissan GTR perhaps

Just my daily Samsung Galaxy phone. I forgot to bring the mount for it so all the filming was done hand held.

Thanks Sports Racer. I meant apparatus but clearly you got the message. You clearly have a steady hand. Regards Chas Le Breton

even if the car sound bad, it looks like it is drivable and enjoyable... but missing lots of grip.

I think i need to figure out a way to improve my proxy build skills before i join again.

Hi Paul,

Is there a plan yet for the next round - or are things down there like up here in Sydney, where we're all just trying to dry out ( the rain has finally taken a 'time out'... ) ?


Cheers,

 

Tony.

Haven’t heard from Paul since the bad weather we have had so hopefully all is ok.
