    ScaleAuto GT'S Results and Final Standings


    To RamJet's for the First Round of the ScaleAuto GT's . On the hottest day of the year we make
    our way up the steep one's to Fossumheim windows open , fan blowing . It's still going to be a hot
    one . Starting off the night a little differently with racer from the Wednesday night clan checking out
    the Monday nighters . Steve's his name he's a true Seahawk's fan , he fit in fine . Steve's toughest
    challenge of the night was adjusting to the end of incline at the crest to the bridge . First time at the
    track he ran fine and I think he had a good time .

    SUMMER KING ; Car , Rogers 1/24 Vintage Chaparral D2 Coupe . Roger led it off and showed us
    all it wasn't going to be easy . No brakes and not a lot of grip . Roger post's a 8.624 , Greg's next
    and fall's 6 hundredth's short , RamJet's 3 hundredth's off the pace himself . Leaving the track most
    every lap I manage to complete a bout 4 and land a .620 . Vic hits a .658 just behind RamJet and
    Roy clocks in just 1 thousandth ahead of Greg . Steve did great , first time on the track and probably
    his first time running a 24th scale car , first vintage for sure .

    1st to Pat , 2nd to Roger and 3rd to RanJet

    Cars , RamJets latest , a set of Scaley 1st gen NASCAR's With some great Vintage
    liveries . The Tide car , Rusty's MGD , Micky D's and Mark Martin's , pole setter Viagra racer . The cars
    proved to be a hand full for the first couple heats . We all settled down and got a grasp of the older cars
    but if you ran in a early heat it was tough . The step back to the past was fun and might even create
    some interest for another NASCAR Series . I think the last heat of the segment was the race of the
    night as all 4 racers stayed within a foot of each other for most of the race . A Super close finish with
    just a lap separating each position on the Podium .

    1st to Pat , 2nd to RamJet and 3rd to Roger

    SCALEAUTO GT'S ; On to the Series Race , the ScaleAuto cars are great performers and by the end
    of the first heat it was proven to be the case . Lap times in the 7.0's at least by Roger . Vic spent most
    his pre race time putting together another Porsche for himself and giving Steve the Viper he ran last
    time around . Neither the Viper or the new Porsche had any ballast on board and it was evident as both
    Vic and Steve had untimely offs . Roger had the speed with the long wheelbase Mercedes , RamJet ,
    Greg and Roy ran the Spyker's at their limits all night . Roy really found his finger this week running
    competitive in most all his heats . My car had it's moments but a inconsistent finger cost me any chance
    down the stretch . Roger had the Win's , Greg had the Laps but RamJet take's the Victory !

    1st to RamJet , 2nd to Greg and 3 to Roger

    Thanks to Ramjet for a great night of racing and a step back with the Vintage NASCAR's

    Next week it's to Greg's and Rainier Raceway

    Down to Dan's and Cascade Raceway for the final round of the SA GT's as usual it's a Family
    affair with Will and Karen joining in the fun . Parking was at a premium this time around but a
    of late comers got creative and made it work .

    SUMMER KING ; Car , Roger shows up with one of the newest creations out there . it's a TTS
    or aTSS , a off shoot of the BRM mini car's . A 1/24th Ford Escort , beautiful livery , deep Red
    topped off with a Gold roof . Roger led things off and just missed the 5.7's by half a hundredth ,
    ​​​​​​​turn missing the 5.6's 8 thousandths myself . Vic was the only racer to hit the 5.6 range , Dan
    ran a little later clocking in with a 5.725 and found the last step on the Podium . Will ran a strong
    Stage just off the pace with a 5.751 of his own landing in 4th .

    1st to Vic , 2nd to Pat and 3rd to Dan

    Cars , RamJet brought down his Slot-It Classic Alfa 333's always a fun
    set at Fossumheim . I felt , even better on the wood of Cascades . Supper short wheelbase
    and that tight chicane made for some interesting infield racing . 21 laps seemed to be the
    max on the night . Dan made it happen in all 3 heats with 3 wins to boot . RamJet landed
    31 in all 3 to , he just happened to be in one of Dan's heat's to finish 1 down . I was short
    a lap and a win myself . If one came off you were done . A great segment with 3 points
    separating the Podium .

    1st to Dan , 2nd to Ramjet and 3rd to Pat

    SCALEAUTO GT'S ; Looking forward to another run on a routed track . It started out pretty
    good to , I was able to hold Dan off in the first heat . It all went down hill from there . Dan
    went the other direction . RamJet stayed steady getting his laps and winning some heats
    as well . About half way through the heats tires starting leaving the rims , Russ was the first
    to feel the pain . we came up with a set for him and it was night and day for Russell . My
    cars performance started tanking then half way through a heat my Porsche started hopping
    coming down the infield straight . Stuck a little super glue between the foam and the rim but
    to little to late . RamJet just did what he dose and shows us all what it takes to win another
    Championship . Another series that loved the routed track's .

    1st to RamJet , 2nd to Dan and 3rd to Roger



    1st RamJet , 2nd Greg , 3rd Roger


    1st RamJet , 2nd Pat , 3rd Greg

    Well I was wondering if Vic would be ready for the 7th Round when I got a call from RamJet answering that
    question . Quick Vic wasn't quite ready yet , then RamJet surprised me with a race offer from Russ . I've al-
    ways liked racing at Russ's old track and new . It's been far to long , for myself and I'm sure most everyone
    else involved looking forward to a night with Russ .

    SUMMER KING ; Car , Russ had 4 cars to choose from and selected my Mr Slot Car - F1 McLaren
    GTR . It's always been a good performer , loves running on the routed venues . After Roger's 6.125
    it showed what might be in store for the rest of us . I was next , couldn't find anything close to Roger's
    time . RamJet slipped worse than I , Vic found the 6.0's and Greg was a hundredth off reaching the 5's
    Both Chuck and Russ both in the 6.2's and Roy joined me with a 6.3 of his own . A 6.016 for Greg was
    3 tenth's quicker than anything the ScaleAuto's could muster .

    1st to Greg , 2nd to Vic and 3rd to Roger

    SUMMER IROC ; Before we got started Russ said he didn't have anything for the IROC segment . It
    worked out well as we all agreed for a fueled marshaled main event .

    SCALEAUTO GT'S ; We haven't run a fuel race sense the last time we visited R&S Raceway . Russ
    has been spending some time with the fidget board and had a great plan for the Series Segment . He
    set the heat's at 3 minutes 40 seconds and fuel load at 35 (gals ? ) . With that set up one would have
    to pit 3 times per heat . Then have to be on their toes with how much fuel to take on the last stop . This
    played right into Vic's hands , he is the human calculator . Think everyone except Vic lay dead on the
    track at one time or another . Vic had his off's and other challenges but one can't run out of fuel and
    expect to take the Round . It was easy to tell we race crash and burn more than not as re slotting the
    car's was more if a challenge than it should have been . It was a great time , fun and with the addition
    of the fuel stop's a whole other strategy to the mix . Vic took the segment missing 300 laps by 3 . Ton's
    of fun !

    1st To Vic , 2nd to Pat and 3rd to Greg



    1st RamJet - 2nd Roger - 3rd Greg


    1st RamJet - 2nd Pat - 3rd Greg


    1st Roger - 2nd Pat - 3rd Vic

    A big thanks to Russ for a good time and something a little different , a lot different . It was a kick !

    Next week down to Lacey and Dan's for the Final round of the ScaleAuto GT's

    Wednesday Night , back at the Center . a hand full of racer's , some grub , some sud's and a great night of racing .

    SUMMER KING ; Car , Roger's hand made 1/24 Toyota LMP . Carbon fiber chassis ScaleAuto foams front and rear
    topped off with a Lexan LMP Toyota shell . Pretty awesome car , fairly forgiving , strong brakes and super grip . Alan
    led things off posting a 8.425 . I'm next but the best i can muster is 8.563 , RamJet's 3 hundredths off my pace . We
    all knew Roger would set the pace with his own car and he didn't prove us wrong topping the chart with a scorching
    5.302 . Roy was worried about braking 10 but really stepped up with a 8.6 ( great job Roy ! )

    1st to Roger , 2nd to Alan and 3rd to Pat

    SUMMER IROC ; Cars , My Spirit Courage LMP's . I spent a little time on the tires last week and it really paid off . The
    cars ran great . Well 5 of them did . The Red Perrelli car was a bit off the pace but as the saying goes we all have to
    run it . Considering running N22's the cars performed well and the lap times were consistent . Roger and Alan sharing
    lane fastest lap times . A awesome race with 2nd , 3rd and 4th all on the same lap with places decided by feet and inches .

    1st to Pat , 2nd to Alan and 3rd to RamJet

    I was looking forward to running these at the Center . There really good cars and the foamy's make
    them even better . Again the lap times were incredible but even more impressive were lap time averages with several heats
    having the average just hundredths of the quickest laps . Coming down to the last heat i was about 10 to 15 feet behind
    Alan , Caught him and passed him only to leave the slot near the end . Alan said he was putting the pressure on me forcing
    me in to a mistake . It wasn't the first and I'm sure it won't be the last . Alan takes the win by 2 laps .

    1st to Alan , 2nd to Pat and 3rd to Roger



    1st ,RamJet - 2nd , Roger - 3rd , Greg


    1st , Ramjet - 2nd , Pat - 3rd , Greg


    1st , Roger - 2nd , Pat - 3rd , RamJet

    As always , a huge thanks to Alan for the Venue , his humor and his time . It was a blast for all involved !

    Next week a change in the schedule as Russ has offered his track for the 7th Round , Thank you Russ !
    See you all then

    To RamJet's and Fossumheim for the 5th round of the ScaleAuto GT's . Getting ready to leave and the
    land line rings ( yes I still have a land line ) and it's Vic and he's waiting for someone to come fix his land
    line ( crazy ) . Anyway he asked if I could stop by and pick up a couple cars for the floaters because he
    wasn't sure he could make it for the race . Stopped by , picked up and I'm off with one car ready to race
    and one in pieces . Got to RamJet's and he had a spare ready to go so the car in pieces stayed that way

    SUMMER KING ; Car , NSR Fiat Abarth 500 . I led it off once again posted a 7.899 , Vic was still at home
    so up comes RamJet and puts me to shame with a 7.778 . Roger's next with a 7.806 Greg's the only other
    in the 7's . Near the end we hear something hobbling up the stairs and it's our man Vic making it just in time
    to make a run but misses the 7's by 84 hundredths .

    1st to RamJet , 2nd to Roger and 3rd to Pat

    Cars , RamJet's Slot-It Croup C's , 3 962's and a Jaguar . After Vic's stumble in the King
    he quickly found his finger and set the pace in the segment . RamJet did what he does and it was up to the
    rest of us to fill in the last spot on the Podium . Heat wins were spread amongst the top 6 the laps were close
    as well with all racers within 10 . Vic lead from start to finish this week with RamJet and myself 3 laps to the
    rears . A good IROC race with a great set of cars . Thanks RamJet !

    1st to Vic , 2nd To RamJet and 3rd to Pat

    On to the Series race . Well Chuck was starting to find himself in the IROC race and
    really started to show his stuff in the Series segment . Running Ramjet's (fresh off the tuning block) Yellow
    Corvette he was very consistent staying in the slot a collecting his laps . Vic said something about Chuck
    ​​​​​​​being on his best behavior . I found out what that meant a little later in the evening . Once again Roger was
    ​​​​​​​quick in his Mercedes , RamJet just being consistent , doing what he does . But this week something was
    a little different , Chuck came in got his timing down with the track and found the Podium in his first run with
    EMSA and at RamJet's track . Awesome !

    1st to RamJet , 2nd to Roger and 3rd to Chuck



    1st RamJet , 2nd Greg 3rd Roger

    A big thanks to RamJet for the last minute switch with Vic , all the grub and a great night of racing .

    Next week to Alan's and the ScaleRacing Center on Wednesday - Pizza and Suds

    To Blair's and Masenchamps for the half way round of the ScaleAuto GT's . I have to say I love this
    little track squeeze section and all . it was a treat this time around with no track issues , Just a mental
    one as I for got to open the DS box . So the first heat runners got a minute of practice , i'm not sure it
    helped any of them .

    SUMMER KING ; Car , Car's ? , we started the stage with Roger Clark's Fly Racing yellow Shell 911
    Porsche . I led things off with a 6.5 . Vic was next and after a couple laps claimed the car had a issue
    and upon examination it was found to have a pinion problem so we moved on to Blair's second
    choice . My almost vintage Scaley CYTOMAX Jaguar XKRS . Looked slower , sounded slower
    but to all of our surprise it was quicker . I posted a 6.202 , Vic a 6.214 , Greg 6.306 Roy stepped
    up with a 6.311 . Then the heavy hitters showed their stuff RamJet with a 6.168 and Roger with
    a 6.146 . The Fly Racer must of had a problem .

    1st to Roger , 2nd to RamJet and 3rd to Pat

    Car's , Blair's Revo Slot GT2 Porsche's . Heat 1 and at the end of the trip down
    the main straight I'm off , by the end of the heat 1 car was on the track . Second minute another
    early off for 2 of us and no laps on the PC screen . The Elvins rule was invoked once again . As I
    said it didn't really help anyone , I know I got 9 of a possible 18 . The Revo's are a lot of fun and
    gave us some great racing with the Podium separated by just 3 laps . RamJet kept it in the slot
    as did our host for his first Podium of the night

    1st to RamJet , 2nd to Blair and 3rd to Greg

    On to the quick car's , with most the series car's we run , if we're running
    foamys they love racing at Blair's . Quick times and lot's of laps . Most of us were quick enough
    to hit 22 in the lap department . Roger's car was lighting the only racer to hit 23 laps and I think
    he hit it 3 or 4 times . I was close a couple time's but never crossed the 23 line . It began to feel
    like the week before at Bob's where Roger was going to have another perfect night . Then the
    Mercedes started to find it's way out of the slot . Vic Had a tough night to as his 911 just didn't
    have the wheel's it needed to compete . For me it was a night like at Dan's in the last series ,
    where the car could do no wrong .

    1st to Pat , 2nd to Greg and 3rd to RamJet a strong showing by Roy with 3 heat wins and a 4th



    1st RamJet , 2nd Greg , 3rd Roger

    Out to Bob's and the BrickYard for the 3rd Round of the ScaleAuto GT's . Was another beautiful night
    out at the lake and another night of wondering what Bob will have in store for the club . Steve makes
    it for his for his 3rd time with EMSA he seems to be having a good time . Roy's moved to the next level
    putting a little pressure on the reg's , me anyway . It's been a good Series so far .

    SUMMER KING ; Car , Roger's SRC 907 Porsche Long Tail Endurance Racer . Roger leads it off and
    logs in a 8.358 . I'm next after last weeks stumble , pushing all the way with about 6 offs I find a 8.010
    Vic's up next clocking a 8.021 . then a couple 8.1's a 8.4 and a 8.8 . Then Baba Loo digs deep posting
    a 8.015 for the second step on the Kings Podium .

    1st to Pat , 2nd to Bob and 3rd to Vic

    well we wondered what Bob had in store and the IROC was it . A couple of VW Bugs
    for the Gutters and two Micro busses on the inner . In the first heat both the busses were on there sides
    before the end of the first lap but the PC wasn't keeping laps ( reprieve ! ) It took 2 more try's by the time
    we finished heat one . Lots of practice for the first rounders . We all had our shots with the busses and we
    all failed . Roger did manage do stay in a little longer than the rest for the IROC Win .

    1st to Roger , 2nd to Greg and 3rd to RamJet

    After last weeks debacle I was hoping to find my finger , didn't come close . Bob had
    his tires trued down to rubber bands but what he gained in down force he lost in top end . The Spyker's were
    ​​​​​​​strong once again but this week it was Roger and his Mercedes . In a rare week on the track Roger stayed
    in the slot on both race segments not leaving it once . Roger's always quick and now if he's figured out the
    staying in the slot thing we're in for some long nights at the track .

    1st , again to Roger , 2nd , again to Greg and 3rd again to RanJet

    To Greg's and Rainier Raceway for the Second Round of the ScaleAuto GT's . Vic , Roger and myself
    running a little late because of some heavy traffic on 18 . We show up about quarter to race time and
    for me it showed . Never really found my finger . Steve showed up for his second tussle with EMSA
    and showed the exact opposite in his performance . A great round for both Steve and Roy .

    SUMMER KING ; Car , NSR Porsche GT3 . In a rare occurrence I lead things off clocking in with a 6.08
    that lasted for a minute . Roger peppers in with a 6.03 , RamJet , Vic and Greg all end up somewhere in
    between . The top 5 within 5 hundredths of each other . A early glimpse of what the night had in store for
    the club .

    1st to Roger , 2nd to Greg and 3rd to Vic

    Cars , Greg's Ninco 1 GT's . After running the King in lane 2 and constant cleaning of
    the tires in the segment the Lambo had a advantage over the Corvette in lane 1 . Another incredible run
    in the IROC segment with a single off for the night . The Corvette did find it's rears as the race moved on
    We had a couple lane and scoring snafus . One that went in the book and one was corrected . In the end
    what a race with only 1 lap between the top 4 and just 3 separating the top 6 .

    1st to Greg , 2nd to Vic and 3rd to Pat

    To the Series event . I'm not sure if it was the first heat or just mine but I left the track
    2 feet in to it , left it again in the second minute after 2 laps (it didn't get any better) Vic's Porsche started off
    the pace but he had the patience to keep it cool and stay in the slot . The Spyker's all ran well and Steve
    showed a lot of patience of his own for his first time at EMSA's tightest venue . RamJet stole the show with
    well , with RamJet does but this time he leads in the wins department to . Greg was was the quickest but
    had some rare home track off's . Roy's showing some positive strides landing 1 spot short of the Podium .
    Team Spyker was the class of the field taking 3 of the top 4 positions .

    1st to Ramjet , 2nd to Vic and 3rd to Greg



    1st RAMJET - 2nd GREG - 3rd VIC


    1st PAT - 2nd GREG - 3rd VIC


    1st ROGER - 2nd PAT - 3rd VIC

    Thanks to Greg for hosting Round 2 and a fun night of racing . ( how'd you guys like the pop corn )

    Next week from EMSA's tightest to the toughest as we head back to Bob's and the BrickYard .
