That Porsche looks a bit low ? What is the clearance under the chassis on the tracks ? Im asking as my box stock height SCX Subaru has about 4mm under it on a set up board and Im wondering if I may need a higher rear tyre to up the clearance on some tracks .

I think it would be in an entrants best interests to not have their cars too low.

 

For those of us who have non-rally home tracks and little or no experience with this kind of cars set up, what kind of height should we be aiming for phoeno?

 

Would a from-the-box Scalextric, (say WRX or the new Ford Focus) have adequate height?

You'll find that standard SCX cars are as low as you would want to go , at least on Craigs or my track

 

Another thing to consider is that on my track there are 34 full corners and a couple of

switch backs as well as the jump and the bridge also the longest straight is 2.6 mtrs.

 

Craigs track has about the same if not more.

Sounds like setting up a car to run well might be a little difficult. :huh2:

 

Any tips regarding weight, tires, glides, etc.

Manic - on gazzas track they get down to 21sec / lap where as my best was 28sec - and thats box stock Hyundai 4wd - but the cars on Gazzas track may not do too well on mine, short little bursts of speed and flatish .. will know next week how the track goes ... where Gazza's has big undulations, so weight will be an obvious factor to keep it centred.

Manic,

 

My proxy record in recent years is slightly better than yours but still not in the top 80% of the rest of the guys, so I am probably not one to ask.

 

Althou a Scaley rally car non mag might not be a wise choice, depends how much you want to change.

Thanks for the invite, that's what I should do but every free second I get I'm working on my track mate. Not to side track the thread but I've been working with the plaster cloth you recommended - FANTASTIC stuff although a little expensive, (I've used 4 rolls already)...Thanx for the tip, my track is coming to life!

Um not to go off thread either but what is this plaster cloth ? is it for the diorama (track hills etc) I need info for this stuff - Im building a rally track as most of you that read this thread probably know and hills etc are soon to be put in place I was going to use styrene foam and flywire / plaster but Im concerned about weight , got any hints for me

BMR - the plaster cloth is a woodland scenic product, $25 a roll for 10ft of mesh with plaster. Dip in water, place on area and spread plaster with fingers.

 

It is dearer and stronger than my old plaster of paris and paper towel method, but takes 1/3rd the time.

The following list of names is for drivers who have shown an interest.

 

Lenny Broke, PeteN95, Phoeno, Manic, Hmcsat, Lav, Gazza, TeamRed, OTFS, BigFella, Tazracer, IT Elec, Hoffy, Triggy, Mopar, Holty and BMR.

 

If we end up with 20 cars, thats about $30 postage for a box of cars from city to city, Syd to Bris, Bris to Melb, Melb to Adel, Adel to Syd is 4 lots of $30 plus $5 home for most cars so the entry fee will be $14 for AUS entries inc return postage and $10AUD for Overseas entries who will pay their return postage seperate. Overseas entries can pay their entry fees and return postage together at the end of the event by paypal.

 

Any left over dollars will be forwarded to Auslot for prizes in any upcoming comps or hosting costs. Please do not put your money in with your car. I'll collect the money, and forward the amount to each person who does the posting to the next city. As usual I will run a spreadsheet of all the transactions if anyone wants to look or question it. No need to send money yet, I'll call for it closer to the start of the event.

 

Gazza, can you provide a date for the first round that suits you (Make sure it doesn't interfere with your Casula/Minto schedule) ?

 

Lav and OTFS, hows the progress ? BMR is ready to step in if your tracks don't look like being finished in time.

 

I did propose the points system to be as per 1:1 rallying, 10,8,6,5,4,3,2,1 anyone object to this ? I feel we should keep as many links as possible to the real thing, modern day rally cars, same points structure, single lane tracks, it is not about outright speed but handling and braking as well.

Just wanted to highlight in the rules point

 

3B - Tyres should not run outside of the widest part of the cars body work. Mirrors do not count as body work.

 

I have never seen an SCX rally car with its tyres inside the wheel arches, these will need to be fixed.

Had a look at the calender and the starting date will be the 24th November on my track and Craig's a week later on the 1st of December.

 

No objections on the point scoring, we've been running the same on our rally this year

 

We will be running SRM as the timing,I've found that it works fine in champ 5,which was setup just for single lane racing against the clock.

 

We will also be running the timing the same as the real thing - the clock starts when you start and stops when you have finished the designated amount of laps for that stage - any problems and they are fixed with the clock still ticking.

 

We'll both run each round in one hit split into 3 different lengths, that way the track stays connected and gets nice and rubbered and also we can get used to each car a lot quicker.

My SCX Subaru is sitting on a set of MJK alloy rims and the tyres are well inside the body , cant vouch for newer cars my SCX stuff is about 4-5 years old. Shes slow but stable hope thats good enough to do well in the races , I think a 6 year old could drive it :P When the rally track is up and going in a week or so I will get my 6 year old daughter to test drive my proxy car , if she stays on then I will up grade the motor :ph34r:
