Initially we were going to use the slot it controller but in the very first heat MNewns car dropped off a lump lead which shorted accross the track and blew the fuse in the contoller, so we decided to run with the PM controller. Luckily the slot it has a fuse !
The Tassie cars are a good bunch of cars to drive, all similar to drive and similar to Ackers and munters' cars. Easy drivers without the surprises too catch you out that some of the other cars had, like RIR and Mareks ferguson which found plenty of occasion on 2 wheels with the drivers heart in his mouth! I liked Bantoffs car even though it was down on pace we managed to get a good result for him in the last 2 heats. Alans and my cars looked more erratic and, I think, were more of a handful to get around.
SlotsNZ and Old 23 cars seemed the heavier cars that just did not have the pace, still they were lovely little cars to trundle around and enjoyed running them.
The track seemed to go off towards the later stages which may be some account for Kens car doing better as it did not tend to grab and bite so much. And the Ackers car did not hook up. Matts car had a good showing in the first 2 heats, It seemed to hook up better than it did in the last 2 it was a bit of a handful to keep straight but would bite in sometimes.
After the race we ran Daves' (Bantoff) car again but we could not get to within 2/10ths of his consistently run race times which was an hour or so before hand.
The difference between an off an not is the times between my car in heats 1 and 2 with me crashing the # 3 car in heat 1 and Alan not. It is also comparable to my heat 1 run with Matts #26 red devil.
An off cost basically a lap by the time you get back into the rhythm of racing again, if you didnt bugger it up again.
Lims car is a rocket, bit top heavy and no brakes makes it handful. Alexis' driver didn't like my driving and was trying to bail out! It was a laugh watching him trying to do so while circulating! Harder tyres on this car seem to resonate some vibration back through the car and traction was a problem. The Mnewns car is the consistent one, only one more round Mike!
The track was not as fast as it was when we qualified.
Its set to be a cracker for the final round with Matt loosing some ground in this round he is by no measure out of the hunt. When the initial run was done at Cheltenham, Matts car was the standout. Kens' cars apparent powerband I felt would let his car down approaching the sharp right hander and then again feathering it onto the straight, My car is just a hounding dog that just doesnt seem to go away ! Then there's the big pack of potentials ready to pounce !
