:lol: Me very happy :D

 

A 15 sec lead on #2 is much more then i could wish for.

 

i actually looked at the standings while loading starting from the middle to down when nearly reaching the end of the results i thought omg another catastrophic result.

Then i thought OK they forgot my name.. :) until i looked at the top..

 

what a great surprise ;)

 

And it also shows the diversity of the track and the way cars should be setup for it..

 

This will indeed be very interesting, it nearly looks like a reverse order of previous races.

 

Cheers,

Jaak

Oh well! I thought round 1 was beginners luck and I guess I was right! LOL!

 

Hopefully it will do better on the next track.

I will be attempting to run Stage 2 tonight all things family wise going well.

 

The track is totally different in reverse and some cars that did not perform well in the clockwise direction may shine going the other way. I suspect we will see laps times continue to fall as the round goes on. Got to hand it to Jakk, his car is perfectly setup for this track. I wouldn't be surprised to see Phil's car near the top of stage two as it seems to love the reverse direction.

 

All is shaping up to be a hard fought contest until the end.

 

The performance level of this year's cars far outways that of last year.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but something doesnt add up with Jaak's first stage. Im sure its just a simple typo. If his best lap was 7.86 and you did 18 laps, even if you managed to do his best lap every lap that adds up to 2 min 21.48 sec. Did you mean to enter 6.86? Even that adds up to 2 min 3.48 sec. :P :clap: :D


cheers

Nice pickup Rick. I was actually a little blown away by the time as it was so far in front of the others. It may have been a glitch with the timer. I will confirm with the head marshall (Phoeno) and perhaps run this car's stage 1 again. Being clearly a mistake in timing this may be acceptable. I do want the other teams protests flowing in either.

You need to install my bullet proof timing system. In built multiple trigger rejection. RFI noise rejection. Will work under any ambient lighting conditions.

hmcsat, as tracks change across a period of time and cars react to this, by getting faster or slower, I think the best way forward from the timing error in round 1 for Jaak is to run stage three as normal and we will compare the overall times of stage 1 with stage 3. Work out the average change across the field (this could be faster or slower) and then we will adjust Jaak's stage 3 time with the average to produce a stage 1 time.

 

Any objections ????
