  • Round 5 Kennebunk, Me

    The cars arrived, I will not be able to qualify them until after the Labor Day weekend. I will open the box and check the cars. We will be running the first race here at Ironwood, the second race will be at a new track my friend Sam just built, he is working the last bugs out now, and running it in.

    Hello George.

    It is good to know the cars have arrived safely and not too late.

      George, if Sam has any problems with his track, then we could run the cars at The River Run. Just an option; let me know if you need that track.

      Looking forward to the race at Ironwood!!

        I checked the cars today. There were a few a minor issues and one major. The front body post broke off the chassis of the #57 Alfa. I glued it back in place but don't know how long it will last.

        Here are the qualifying times and comments:

        O Class, as follows: Car, average time, deslots, fast lap, comments

        #1, 5.38, 0, 5.263, handles well

        #04, 5.29, 0, 5.182, handles very well

        #21, 5.17, 0, 5.116

        #42, 5.39, 1, 5.219, fast and loose

        #48, 5.03, 0, 4.928, just kept getting faster

        #53, 5.21, 1, 5.057, fast; slides in the turn; needs wider rear tires

        #87, 5.09, 4, 4.944, fast and tricky in the turns

        #99, 5.1, 2, 5.025, handles great, maybe needs more speed

            After a few delays the race is in the books.
            There are no changes to the track this year.
            We ran 3 min. heats at 10 volts, the cars handled very well this year, my complements to the builders.

            The next round will not be at Sams new track, due to unforseen circumstances. Allen (Audi1) has offered to host at his new Riverrun Raceway, thanks Allan, and thanks to all the entrants and Alexis.

              Thanks for getting the basically stock Challenger on the podium. Congratulations to the top two finishers.

              Thanks for hosting.

              What does the W or B stand for?


              • #8
                Sorry about the mistake on the total laps for the #57, fat fingers, I hit 9, rather than 0.
                W+B are the lane colors, B-blue lane, or the outside, longest lane, W-white is the inside, shortest distance, tightest turns.
                The Challenger was one of my favorites, because it was stock. I think if it had comparible tires to the rest of the field, it would have finished higher, if not an all out win, I want one.

                  How wide are most of the tires. I'm just using the tire that would fit the stock replacement. I think these are Yellow Dogs and may be 8mm.

                    Most cars in the O class are using aftermarket wheels with at least 10mm tires, as close as I can measure.
