    ROUND 1 REVO SLOT GT2'S - CASCADES RACEWAY

    On a beautiful August Monday night a handful of us got together for the 1st
    Round of the Revo Slot GT2's . Dan had done some work in the garage with
    his mobile AC unit , building exhaust vent spanning the length of the garage
    door . Keeping the venue comfortable in the mid to high 70's .



    LATE SUMMER KING ; Car , Roger's SLS GT3 Christian Crusader Mercedes .
    The car won this years 4 Hour Sprint race in June and finished 2nd in July's
    heat shortened 12 Hour . Roger's car is a great performer on both the big
    tracks with a possible sweep of the ScaleAuto Races barring a stripped motor
    screw rearing it's ugly head . The Last Series Champ our own Mr . Flippant led
    things off setting the bar high clocking in with a 4.4 . Roger just 4 hundredths
    off the pace . Dan was the only other one in the ballpark .

    To Greg , To Dan and To Roger

    LATE SUMMER IROC ; Car's , Dan's NSR Classics . Our second shot with this
    set and most of us excluding myself had a pretty good handle on the Classics .
    Greg lit it up right out of the box , Dan as usual was right there only a off or 2
    costing his chance . The Green 917 in lane 3 had several wins this time around .
    Greg ran a perfect IROC segment with 3 - 22 lamp heat win's

    To Greg , To Dan and To RamJet

    REVO SLOT GT2'S ; On to the Series Race , The cars ran very close with only
    5 hundredth's separating the fastest from the slowest . That also gave us some
    great heats . Roger had some issues with his Marcos with several offs in the heats
    Most everyones tires had marbling problems , mine stayed fairly smooth through -
    out the race . I used NSR Tire treatment oil as the rest used ScaleAuto tire cleaner
    With that information things should be even closer next week .

    To Pat , To Dan and To Greg


    A big thanks to Dan For the Racing and keeping it cool

    Next week it's to Vic's , Victory Lane and NSR Oil

    Till Then

    ROUND 2 REVO SLOT GT2'S - VICTORY LANE

    To Vic's for the Second Round of the Revo Slot GT2's . After the first round the cars
    showed us they were very close performance wise . The second round just confirmed
    it . With heat wins speed across the board it came down to who could keep em in the
    slot .




    LATE SUMMER KING ; Car , RamJet's Chip Canassi Fly Daytona Prototype , The Red
    White and Blue version . After winning 5 of the last 6 or so Series we might have to
    just start calling Greg the King . Well he led things off again and once again set the
    bar high . The only one the get in the 6's . RamJet 2 tenth's off the pace , myself 3
    hundredths behind Rog . Not to bad on the times for a out of the box stock minus the
    magnet Fly car . Thanks RamJet

    To Greg ( His Highness ) , To RamJet and To Pat

    LATE SUMMER IROC ; Cars , Vic's Fly Racing Porsche GT2's . Vic said he'd spent
    some time on the cars and they ran accordingly . During the early heats it looked
    like the Blue car in lane 2 was the car to beat . As the race went on the car in lane
    3 had some wins .I'm not sure how it happened but I was able pull off a win with the
    Red and Yellow car in lane 4 . This one went down to the last heat I was watching
    and feeling good about my chances with the win in lane 4 . Then Vic pulls one out
    of the hat , hitting 17 laps in lane 4 for the only time of the night , taking the segment
    by one lap .

    To Vic , To Pat and To RamJet

    REVO SLOT GT2'S ; To the Series race , time to see how the Revo's would perform
    on plastic for the second round . Handling and acceleration was about the same the
    difference was in the braking , with the Revo's around a hundred grams thats a lot
    to stop . We all proved it was a challenge as each of us took our turn at one time or
    another watching the rest finish the heats . Vic proved theres no place like home for
    the second time of the night this time with 6 heat wins on the board .

    To Vic , To Pat and To RamJet

      ROUND 3 REVO SLOT GT2'S - MASENCHAMPS

      Back to the wood and Blairs for the 3rd Round of the Revo GT2's . The cars
      loved Dan's track and ran very close at Masenchamps with only 3 hundredths
      separating the fastest from the slowest car . No Lance's in EMSA




      LATE SUMMER KING ; Car , My ScaleAuto Black Swan GT3 Porsche . The
      real one looks so much better . Set up as we ran it in the Series a wile back .
      I like my cars fairly loose , add the Red stripe ScaleAuto Foamy's and thats a
      formula for some pretty quick times . His Highness led things off with a 5.5 ,
      RamJet followed suit in the 5.5's but 4 hundredths to the good . I'm not sure
      how but I found 3 tenth's with a low 5.2 . Vic with a mid 5.3 and Blair lands
      on the podium 1,1 thousandth quicker than RamJet .

      To Pat , To Vic and To Blair

      LATE SUMMER IROC ; Cars , Blair's matching Slot- it Team Matra's with the
      only difference in the cars was the number and a colored stripe at the front ,
      side and and rear wing stanchions . RamJet figured it out , I raced the wrong
      car only once but it didn't matter 20 laps off the pace . The rest all landed at
      50 lap's , with the final positions being decided by position points . One heck
      of a race for second .

      to RamJet , To Greg and To Vic

      http://slotcarillustrated.com/portal...1&d=1535057531

      REVO SLOT GT2'S ; On to the Revos . This was strange race , a great race but
      one that's really different . Vic had his troubles at the end of the main straight
      losing his brakes in lane 2 twice . Ramjet had a contact off at the beginning of
      the squeeze section early in a heat costing him a chance at a podium . Blair just
      kept collecting laps . Greg had a couple offs but must of been late in the heats .
      I lost my finger for a moment in the middle of a heat costing me about 5 laps .
      Again lap totals were close and position points had a hand in the final standings
      All and all a great race with all racers landing heat wins , a good way to finish the
      night .

      To Pat , To Greg and To Blair

        ROUND 4 REVO SLOT GT2'S - THE BRICKYARD

        Out to Bob's and the BrickYard for the 4th Round of the Revo GT2's . With
        the Summer season in full swing and Bob's schedule it's been a 3 to 4 months
        sense we've ran at the Yard and it showed through the first couple segments .

        SUMMER KING ; Car , Roger's orange SRC Porsche 908 Long Tail Endurance
        Racer . Running a 26k ProSlot Motor , plenty quick decent brakes and pretty
        good handling . We all felt the shock of the BrickYard and it showed as the gap
        between the regulars was only 3 tenth's top to bottom .

        To Pat , To Vic and To Greg

        SUMMER IROC ; Cars , Bob's Slot-It Alfa 33/3 Classic's . The tough part
        they were all Red making it a challenge keep track of who's was who's . We
        all had the same view , some a little better than others but you know what
        I mean . Well Bob knows the track , knew the cars and almost pulled it off
        missing the top step of the Podium by one stinking lap to Roger who as
        always wasn't afraid of anything . He ran em like he stole em taking the
        nights second Segment .

        To Roger , To Bob and To Vic

        http://slotcarillustrated.com/portal...1&d=1535733866

        REVO SLOT GT2'S ; By the Series Race a couple of us kind of figured it
        out . We knew our cars and what lane we were running in . Some incredible
        Heats going down to the timer . Some falling short with self off's trying to
        keep up in the fray . This week we had the biggest disparity in lap times
        with Roger leading the field just about a tenth separation between top and
        bottom . A fun night at the BrickYard .

        To Pat , To RamJet and To Roger

          ROUND 5 REVO SLOT GT2'S - SCALERACING CENTER

          Back at the Center for the 5th Round of the Revo GT2's . Mark the Delivery Man
          joined us for the night and what a night it was . With some of the closes races
          we've had , the IROC and Series Race neck and neck till Vic and I lost our fingers
          in the final heats .

          SUMMER KING ; Car , Roger's Carrera Mercedes DTM , this time set up with a 37k
          Pro Slot motor . We thought we had it figured out , just have Alan go first . Well ,
          thats not it as he set the bar high . High enough to stay atop the stage till the last
          of the regulars gave it a shot . Greg was 2 tenth's of the pace , 4 for me . Vic just
          2 hundrenth's ahead of Greg . Then Roger got on the track , raced it like he owned
          it and took the stage . With that Stage Roger leaps from 5th to 2nd in the standings .
          Greg you'll still be first up next week

          To Roger , To Alan and To Vic

          SUMMER IROC ; Cars , My Spirit C65 Courage LMP's . Running with quite a bit
          of motor for urethan tires on a routed track . One has to be fairly patient with
          these cars at this venue or you'll be doing a lot of running with crash and dash .
          Right Mark ! He had a rough night in the Segment , a whole lot different than
          the 24 scale racers . Vic and Alan were neck and neck going into the last heat
          then Vic lost his finger , twice ! Ended up in a 3 way tie for second , landing in
          3rd by 8 sectors behind Roger .

          To Alan , To Roger and To Vic

          REVO SLOT GT2'S Wow the cars loved the track , mine did . This time around
          Roger and I had a hell of a go for 5 heats . As a whole it was a great race with
          most everyone showing their stuff . Alan and RamJet racing steady & consistent .
          Vic doing the best he could with what he had , Greg's car had good speed with
          some handling issues . As in the IROC race One fell from grace , You guessed
          it , in my second to last heat I had 3 off's and like Vic fell to the last step of
          the Podium . Finally quicker than Roger but couldn't stay in the slot !

          To Roger , To Alan and To Pat

            ROUND 6 REVO SLOT GT2'S - FOSSUMHEIM

            Single steps up to the track for me , I'm walking much better with my new knee but
            it's pretty steep and still a good choice . Think most every one but Ramjet use the
            single step method . Home track advantage .

            LATE SUMMER KING ; Car , Greg's NSR Gulf 977 Porsche GT3 . I can't really
            remember what was different about it except we used a wireless controller with no
            adjustments . Way to much brake for me 2 tenths off the pace , Vic a tenth off
            himself . The rest figured it out and all landed in the 7.7's . Leading the way the 2
            stepper him self .

            To RamJet , To Greg and To Roger

            LATE SUMMER IROC ; At Ramjets request I brought my NINCO 997 Porsche
            GT3's . All and all a pretty decent set of racers , with lap times in the ballpark of the
            Series cars . They always give a close race , this week the Gulf car in lane 2 was the
            class of the field . All but one of us set our fast lap for the segment with the Blue car
            With only 1 lap separating the top 2 on the Podium .

            To Pat , To RamJet and To Greg

            http://slotcarillustrated.com/portal...1&d=1537152027

            REVO SLOT GT2's ; On to the Series Race , a race I'd like to forget . I don't
            think I've come off this much in the whole series . RamJet repaired his controller
            and it showed staying in the slot and getting his laps . The rest of us all had issues
            with non contact offs . Half way through The second rotation the culprit was spotted
            My car was bouncing down the track , upon inspection several globs of rubber found
            on my rears . They looked like F1 tires after a cool down lap at the end of Grand
            Prix . No one was sure of it was from tire degradation , cleaning of RamJet's track
            or rubber on the tires from the week before . A great run for RamJet , Roger and
            Greg .

            To RamJet , To Roger and To Greg

              The King car was an NSR with the oXigen digital chip, but rather than putting too many knobs in your hands (SCP), I put too few (ARC). Next time, it will be with the SCP and you can adjust whatever you want.

              • #8
                No biggie , I thought you said something about oXigen but the memory is not what it once was .
                The problem was't the controller but with the hand in which it laid .

                See you tonight !

                Comment


                • #9
                  Well, yeah, but no one uses controllers without any adjustments any more. I did it mainly to show that oXigen can be as cheap as a $30 controller if you want.

                    ROUND 7 REVO SLOT GT2'S - RAINIER RACEWAYS

                    Up to Auburn And Greg's for the 7th Round of the Revo Slot GT2's . Upon arrival
                    I noticed something new to the left of Greg's building station . Wow , a 3D printer
                    Greg had talked about and it is pretty cool . He's been busy , with a new Dunlop
                    bridge and some new user friendly curbing on the 180 R1 hairpin leading on to the
                    computer straight . There will be more track accessories down the road (can't wait)

                    LATE SUMMER KING ; Greg really went all out to slip from the top of the King
                    Standings picking Roger's SCX Rally Car . Hoping it would take a couple Stages for
                    the motor to warm up . Huge Fail (depending on how one looks at it ) He set the
                    pace by nearly 4 tenth's . Vic was next closest as the rest of us hung our heads in
                    shame .

                    To Greg , To Vic and To Pat


                    LATE SUMMER IROC ; Cars , Gregs Fly Racing BMW's . It was all about the Red
                    Bull M3 in the first rotation as the inside lane was lacking grip . We survived the slide
                    and before the second go we gave the Yellow car a quick tape rolling . That made all
                    the difference one could ask for . The cleaning gave the inside lane a slight advantage
                    but much better racing the second time around .

                    to Pat , To Vic and to RamJet

                    REVO SLOT GT2'S ; After the clag event last week I was waiting to see what would
                    be the story at EMSA's tightest Venue . Well tires didn't play a major part at all unless
                    one forgot to clean their's . Some of the best racing of the night , untimely offs here
                    and there , with most self induced . Who would know at the end a rare finish by RamJet
                    tied with Vic in the lap department but talking the nights finale with the most heat wins .
                    Thats 2 in a row for RamJet , tightening things up for the final race in the Series .

                    To RamJet , To Vic and to Pat

                      8th AND FINAL ROUND REVO SLOT GT2'S - VICTORY LANE

                      To Vic's for the Revo GT2 finale . With RamJets's late series charge he has a
                      shot for the title . K Mark a regular at ScaleRacing Center made it all the way
                      from Silverdale for his first race with the club . By the end of the night he was
                      in most every race taking heat wins in both the IROC and Series segments .

                      LATE SUMMER KING ; Car , RamJet's Yellow Pioneer Mustang . What can I say
                      Greg leads it off sets the bar and holds everyone off . We might have to change
                      it to Greg of the Hill . Just 5 hundredth's between the Podium . Another Series
                      Win for His Highness .

                      To Greg , To Pat and To Vic

                      LATE SUMMER IROC ; Cars , Vic's IRL open wheel racers . A tough call for Mark
                      with his first run at Victory Lane , add first race on plastic . It's a different ball-
                      game altogether . Everyone chalked up a heat win but yours truly . RamJet
                      led the field staying in he slot and sporting 2 heat wins . Mark grabs his first
                      heat win , gaining confidence with every lap on the track .

                      To RamJet , To Vic and To Roger

                      REVO SLOT GT2'S ; To the Series Finale , I started out strong in the early rounds
                      and RamJet has won the last 2 races to make it close going into final . We both
                      started out in good shape , keeping out of trouble and getting our laps . With a
                      new guy in the mix it was time to stay on your toe's . Mark was never in the way
                      but he also raced and I'd have to say I can't remember him taking anyone out .
                      Roger's Marcos had the leg's for this night , he also had some selfies along the
                      way . RamJet led the laps , Roger had the win's and I ended up somewhere in-
                      between .

                      To Roger , To Pat and To RamJet
