Nice artwork there BMR. Good to see a fellow artist putting his skills to good use. What media do you use - watercolour, or like me computer colour?

Computer (windows paint program ) very slow but it does the job and I transfer the picture to another program that came with a camera called Arcsoft it has a handy blurring tool that looks like a finger , it scrubs / blends the pixels together to blur away the dots but it doesn't zoom in a long way so if the pic was blown up it would show lots of little mistakes / pixels as an (A4) size print off its ok. maybe a few touch ups with some pencils would clean it up some more before a clear coat or laminate. I was in a creative mood and had some time while the missus watched her TV shows ;)

I just ran a print off in landscape from windows picture and fax viewer on a A4 plain sheet using an old hewlet packard deskjet 810c printer , it came out looking ok I should do a few more mods like a split grill on the Monaro and a bit more on the Corvair - my turn for the TV tonight though. :)

What was the pic you posted ? It says removed or deleted ? If it was the pic I posted its still on paintbucket as far as I know.
Maybe one of the other entrants has nicked it to redraw there car up front :)

Muggy,

I was under the impression BMR was going to randomly assign qualifying times to the cars using a pair of dice much like you did?? Shouldnt take more than a few minutes to do that. :) ;) :P

Hat coat Im outa here.

Results of the Proxy car time trials [/b]last night - [b]Proxy race next Saturday night cars are all boxed up again and on a high shelf away from any visiting friends kids - they can use my stockers to keep the track clean and rubbered up ;)
Thanks to Dennis M for driving the cars - he was too worn out to do anymore driving for a while last night but pepped up again to play with a sponge tyred wompy and set a new fastest lap record 6.031 ( none of us could beat his time ) proving he hasn't lost his touch , ex wing car man enjoying the 1/32 RTR car these days.
Thanks to Hoffy for his computer savvy setting it all up and running the show.
Exceptional marshalling and proffesional joksters;
Dave W . Chris C , Rick F and Damo This lot enjoyed messing around / racing the 1/24th FJ Holdens after the proxy time trials lots of laughs there.
I did a bit of driving with the womp and FJ's but mostly enjoyed marshalling and drinking Hoffys Burboun ;) ;)
I will post some quotes on each car a bit later today.

LANE 3
# TIME DATE CAR DRIVER
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
1 06.590 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Sprint Pasquale
Set the fastest lap late in its 2 minute time trial , comments “ hard to get into a rhythm with but has plenty of power and speed , ran smooth but hard to keep in a constant slide around the two long drifting corners
2 06.730 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Sports Racer
This car went very well on my track , I raced it at Imugfords track and didn’t expect it to do as well as it did on my track , easy to drive more than fast enough on the main straight , drifts well . Stealth attack watch this one race day !
3 06.775 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Small Nails
The car was quick but dragged its nose spoiler a bit , it snapped off (can be reglued easily and will look like it never came off) went better with no spoiler ! Should I repair it after or before the big race ?? Judges please
4 06.784 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Bitman
Fast and smooth easy to get used to , drifts well in the long corners and grips well in the tighter corners “ one to watch next Saturday.
5 06.795 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Kapbfell
True to form Phil - nice and easy to drive not overpowered and comfortable on every part of the track , gripped well on my track but it was sliding a lot and struggling for grip on Muggys track ? (ferrodore) my surface is Cabots clear coat. Should be up at the top next Saturday night.
6 06.878 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Hell Razor
Fast car but suffered with intermittent grip in the long drifting corners “ easy enough to get used to and set its best lap time later in the two minute trial after some controller adjustment.
7 06.930 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Oswald
Quick enough to finish well but suffered with a bit too much grip in the bowl end corner of my track (exit from the bridge corner) cars need to power slide and drive hard still through that corner. If a car can retain the slide action under brakes into the tight corner it will carry more speed onto the bridge overpass , some cars gain a lot of ground there but sorry your car got too grippy in the slide and had to be driven at about 8/10ths there , don’t feel bad , my car does it there as well.
8 06.934 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Terry
Nice fast and easy to drive , this car got good speed onto the bridge overpass !
9 06.950 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Mopar Devil
Smooth and predictable , not as fast as expected but not far off the fastest lap time so being easy to keep in the slot it should do well in total laps counted next Saturday night.
10 06.959 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 ESPSIX
Fast car but very low if it was one of our club cars it wouldn’t be allowed to run under the track ground clearance rules , it scrapes its front spoiler along the track in a lot of places which may explain its occasional deslotting , it corners on its front spoilers outer edges instead of its front wheels ( we thought it had solid front tyres at first) “ my track has the braid sunken into the track a little 0.5 “ 1 mm. But it was also scraping on Mugfords track which is copper tape that sits flush with the track surface.
11 07.035 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 BMR
My own car was suffering from too much grip in the bridge exit corner making it a bit unstable and on edge instead of drifting nicely , it almost got a 6.8 but deslot on that last lap , could have been the yelling and stirring going on by the marshals that interfered with Dennis’ concentration ? Or maybe he didn’t want to crash my car in front of me ? I wouldn’t have really sent you home Dennis (insert smiley face here)
12 07.048 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Fangio
Nice handling car very predictable should be an easy car for people to drive on race night and should rack up the laps “ potential podium car. Its total laps that wins not outright speed huh.
13 07.060 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Magoo
Fast and easy to drive around but the crown gear mesh is sounding noisy . Hope she gets through , my track flows quite well so the gear has a good chance of survival.
14 07.107 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Devious Dave
Smooth and quiet ( comments like is it running?) very quiet car maybe not as fast down the main straight as the other Audis but easy to drive and consistent this car should rack up the laps as others around it deslot.
15 07.113 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 McGregor168
Very fast on the straights but hard to control in the tight sections , if the driver has an adjustable controller it can be tamed but not everyone has a fancy controller . The better drivers on the night may come to terms with it and tame the beast to rack up the laps - definite potential
16 07.199 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Sidecar Steve
I like this car because I know there’s a Pontiac hiding underneath that Monaro guise “ its fast but a bit grippy and bouncy , very loosely mounted body that could be contributing to the extra grip ( I find that a little less body movement can sometimes tighten it up and help a car to slide ) or maybe the tyres are touching the body as it leans ? Was it always mounted loose or has it just worked its way there over the last few rounds ?
17 07.221 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Manic
This baby is a drift car - Grip was not so good on this car but it was controllable
18 07.293 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 AASTEES
Great car fast and predictable can do better than the fastest lap time it posted show I think. Total laps count is what wins no necessarily outright speed.
19 07.364 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Gazza
A bit down on main straight speed and a little unpredictable in the corners gotta be driven a little conservatively maybe to get a high lap count
20 07.500 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Old Slot
Fast car still sounds a bit tight “ as posted in round 1 - great brakes ! could be because of the tightness in the rear axle , is it tight gears or good magnets in the motor ? Smooth car though and handles well except for the hand brake slides into the corners
21 07.536 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Manimal
Bouncy “ big tyres lots of grip but hinders its ability to slide in the long drifting corners , also bounces its way nervously through the tight corners , needs a careful driver to tame it.
22 07.540 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Imkouwl
Fast enough great body heheehe gotta say that huh , hand brake slides to way out to the right and hinders any attempts by other drivers to overtake , was this a built in tactical advantage ? Handles well and goes fast enough to have a fair chance at a higher order finish.
23 07.566 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Ian Mugford
Sorry Ian she still wants to jump lanes in the tight mid field area exiting the corners by the marshal box (centre track area) Fast enough no worries but that deslot bug is still living in its belly.
24 07.674 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Antony
A bit bemusing this one , fantastic car at Muggys place but off song here ? seemed intermittent on power , marshals noticed sparks at the braid , I haven’t put it on a check board so Im assuming here but with the track braid sunken into the track 0.5 -1mm the car may be riding on its front wheels more than its flag , Dennis adjusted the braid to make it a bit lower (slight fold down) during the two minute run but it didn’t really seem to help. Dave 3ofus took off the body and had a look for loose lead wires but found no problems . I personally was looking forward to running your car on my track and I will have another look at it myself , not doubting Daves abilities but another look can’t hurt. I want everyones car to run as well as it can , no modifications allowed but it may be as simple as a lead wire or a soft solder where the lead wire meets the motor.
25 07.813 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 HMCSCAT
This lime green gem should have loved this track with 29000rpm on tap but it didn’t back up the RPM label up with the performance - comments were ( its just getting wound up and the straight ends ! ) I noticed the axle seemed very tight at Imugfords and this issue was looked at that night . From memory I think the motor shaft didn’t extend back far enough to run in the crown gear to keep the axle centred so it was set up with the rims running lightly against the axle bushes to get the correct mesh with the gears (like a 1/24th inline rear end) I will have another look at it and if its just set up too tight I will adjust it IF THAT’S WITHIN THE RULES ! can I please get an ok on that
26 08.223 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Eno the Wonder Dog
What can I say here “ Box stock Carrera with the flag positioned behind the axle ?
Mmm , has straight line speed , lacks a bit in the brake area , grips ok , a bit on the tippy side and looks ok , but not really in the performance league of most of the others this time around Eno. I think from memory you were pressed for prep time ? Goes better on my track than Muggys track if that’s any consolation. If the drivers just go for it she will probably suffer in the lap count but if they drive it within its abilities and just stay on and score laps it can come up in the finishing order . Maybe a few pm’s to the drivers offering a bribe or two will help . I personally will take on the challenge and ask the other drivers to beat my lap score with it if they can.

27 08.485 07-06-08 Proxy 2008 Scar
Bouncy bouncy bouncy “ really bad rear axle bushes mate the axle floats around and makes the car jump whenever ya hit the throttle. Deslots on the straights , I would love to fix it but the rules say………………no extra mods allowed , pity really because it does have the potential there to really go hard , maybe with a rather large points loss (you can negotiate with the judges to go for replacement bushes) Your gonna hold up the ladder all the way I think so why not drop some points now and go for a miraculous comeback . I think the proxy will be a sad affair for you all the way if this is left unattended. I am willing to do the work replacing them and I have some MJK plastic bushes or Scalextric plastic bushes here, I think I even have some brass bushes there - yours for free if you get the OK but don’t leave it till the last minute Saturday arvo as I am a busy man.
*** This car is also a traffic menace to the other entrants and causes other cars to be put out of the slot or potentially worse “ damage them

Sorry about the odd dots and dashes but its copied from the word program and Im outa time to edit it out on the Auslot post

I have had a few pm asking for posters , cheers for the compliments but if you want a copy its only suited for A4 size printouts as any bigger would show up heaps of pixels and imperfections . I printed it off on my old inkjet and its ok , with a clear laminate it would be nice on the shed wall.
I printed it off in landscape through windows photo and fax viewer .

Hi BMR, thanks for the rundown on the cars.
  • Please fix Smallnails spoiler before the race
  • Could you check the screws on my car. They should only be 1/2 to 3/4 of a turn back from nipped up so sounds like they've come loose.
  • In view of the danger to other cars posed by Scar's Celica, please change the bushes by direction of the Organiser. There will be a 25 point penalty applied.

cheers!

Steve

I think my biggest problem was that weren't meant to move the guide shoes and I'd already promised the Opel 'cause it was bloody ugly & made me laugh. Actually the whole car has made me laugh. I was pressed for time but had already promised the car so I couldn't be wishy washy and use something else! I was getting 'good' (comparatively) with it on my track (Ferrodore) but it's certainly a "driver's" car as it isn't very forgiving. 29000 rev Slot it engine in it - should probably have gone shorter..

One of the Sydney guys asked if he could have it when the series was over - who was it that said that??
