    Race #9 Far-A-Way Hill NY

    Well the car arived yesterday and I got a chance to get them downstairs
    this morning.. And they are a good looking group of cars..

    The race will be held on my Far-A-Way Hills track... The track is a 4
    lane 60 foot 10 turn road course.. The power will be set a 10 volts,
    which is the normal power I run the non magnet cars at .



    Qualifying will be one 3 min heat. This lets me get a feel for the car and set the controller up for each car.
    And speaking of qualifying here we go. First up

    Car # 51 Born in the 50's


    very quick little car, good grip, smooth running, good handling, Just doesn't like being pushed real hart.

    Qualifying time.. 6.208

    Car # 30 My car


    Smooth, good handling, grip is decent but not as good as a number of other cars. very stable and can be pushed hard.
    But as many of the other hosts have said, It really needs more motor or a gear change.

    Qualifying time.. 6.379

    Car #26 Lou E.



    The car had good straight line speed but low grip.
    The biggest problem is that the chassis is tweeked and the right front tire is way up off the track about a 1/16 And that really hurts the cars handling in the 5 left hand turns on my track..
    ( Lou I'll see if there is anything I can do to straighten the chassis)

    Qualifying time 6.959

    Car # 68 Big Jack



    This car has a KILLER motor.. Almost too fast for my track.. Good grip, smooth running, good handling.. Just have to be on your toes when getting on the power coming out of the truns.

    Qualifying time 6.209

    Car # 9 Munter



    Car is very smooth running, very good grip. good speed and handling..
    BUT... very little brakes, so it is harder to drive than all the other cars but still put in a very good time.

    Qualifying time 6.265

    Car #15 Mether



    What can I say.. this one is the class of the field on my track.. Smooooooth running, great grip, even better handling. very easy to drive..

    Qualifying time. 6.051

    Car # 5 Rixvette



    On my track the car has a number of problem, low grip, needs more motor, handling is poor
    The main reason for the handling problem is like Lou E. car... the chassis is tweeked real bad and the right front tire is up higher than Lou's car. So in the left hand corners the car tip really bad.
    So the car is very hard, you have to be so careful in the left handers you loose a lot of time..

    Qualifying time 7.085

    So here is the qualifying order..

    1st) Mether 6.051
    2nd) Born in the 50's 6.208
    3rd)Big Jack 6.209
    4th) Munter 6.265
    5th) JBriggsK9 6.379
    6th) Lou E. 6.959
    7th) Rixvette 7.085

    The car was a GOOD runner and I was surprised at how it finished myself.. The track conditions with the heat really hurt a number of cars.. I lost 2 tenths on my car and I just could not come anywhere near your qualifying time with your car.
    Al had a hard time adjusting to the lack of brakes on your car.

    OK....that number nine is looking good.....but not racing so well.

    Thanks Chris for this round.
    I tried to build a quicker car than last year but it seems I have over cooked the thing.

    Thank you to the wife for picking my car as concours winner...I guess red is her favourite colour?

    regards to all and thanks again

    50's

    We had a ball.... as hot as it was,we had a great time.. Your car liked my track last year too.. And Big Jack's seemed to like it too even with that killer motor..

    Bob.... my given name is John..... But I go by my middle name as there were 4 other John's in my neighborhood..

    Al had a ball and really liked the way your car handled.... he got his best lap total with your car.

    Thanks Chris for hosting and racing. I know its a bummer to be beat by 1", especially with all that "prize money" on the line Thanks for keeping the little cats happy, looks like mine really liked your track with that quick lap time. I still figure to "down motor" next year as that 40k NSR is a "little twitchy" I fear.

    Today was the big race day.... Sunny, temp. 93 degrees, Humidity about the same... And it was hard on the lap times and the drivers...

    I want to give a special thanks Dave and Al who drove 80 miles in from Buffalo to help me run the race.. Al was the second driver and Dave had the buttom for track calls..

    This was only Al's second time on the track and with limited time to get use to the cars and the track he did a good job of driving...

    We ran 2 lanes and each heat was 3 mins. long...

    So here are the results..



    First place went to #15 Mether with a total of 52.10 and his fastest lap of 6.273

    2nd.) # 51 Born in the 50's 51.25 his fast lap of 6.287

    3rd.) # 68 Big Jack 50.80 (by 1 inch) his fast lap and fastest lap of the race 6.184

    4th) # 30 JBriggsK9 50.80 his fast lap 6.508

    5th) #9 Munter 50.10 his fast lap 6.438

    6th) # 26 Lou E. 46.70 his fast lap 6.878

    7th) # 5 Rixvette 45.35 his fast lap 7.128


    Great job on the cars guys... It was fun (hot but fun)
