  • Evolution of a Scaleracing 24 Hour Enduro Racecar

    Life In The Fast Lane


    We started with a GT3 and an RSR not sure which one we wanted to run. My task was to install the decals:




    We liked the GT3 the best for the 24 hour enduro. It looked like this at the start:




    At the 12 hour mark we had a lead of 1 lap. The car is definately developing a patina, notice drivers side A pillar:





    Drivers side A and C pillars were both broken, likely from being stopped by a marshall while "riding" in another lane:





    At the end of 24 hours the car looked like this:






    Used and abused, we had to change the battery for the light kit when it failed. Our next adventure was when one of the front wheels fell off and the front axle came loose. Final obstacle was when the exhaust was disloged by a rear end collison and had to be reattached. All repairs were preformed under green flag conditions.

    In the end the car wound up in and ran 15,000+ laps or over 230 miles, a record for distance in a Scaleracing 24 Hour race in Tacoma.

    Looking forward to next year...
