      ghost driver

      Is that driver a ghost, or did he just not get painted?

            Thanks! Runs good on my track. I think I need more weight though!

              Will be interesting to see how you guys run.

              BRM Challenge rules for the 917, purple motor, no weight added at all.
              Rocket ships here. Gearing changes allowed and fit latest guide. Change tires, and or wheel tire to suit your track, we run BRM sponge.
              Have also run BRM soft rubber, good grip not as fast as sponge but very good car. Lowered fronts that come with most of the cars.
              Check for interior interference with body, but easy to set up, and as I said here, at least, very fast.

                Mario...now I get it...looks just like the Great Traditions special edition driver. As long as it is fast, no one will even notice the driver is not painted.


                I am glad to help you with tuningyour H&R. Looking forward to running my new H&R Toyota 88c on the big track at The Race Place.


                Hopefully if Glenn decides to run the BRM C class as the second race on Saturday I can run that as well. I think I have the tire issue figured out...last time my car was too grippy and tippy and I could not get any of the several pairs of BRM tires to have less bite. So...switched over to Scaleauto tires which are narrower and will allow less bite in the corners and should give me the slight bit of slide I need.


                I have to leave at 3:00 in order to get back home by 4:30.


                See you Saturday.

                  Hi Alan, Which purple motor is that ? Is that the one that come with the kit or car? I have the pink one or I'm color blind .... It's probably me

                    You're right, it's you. BRM purple/pink motor, same motor. The one that came with the car.

                        Magenta, pink, purple.

                        BRM 917's come stock with S-032 some have difficulty calling the motor pink so purple ish works.

                        Stock motor, gearing change allowed, no added weight, latest guide and tire set up for your track For BRM rules that's about it.

                        And they are fast.
