ROUND 6 CARRERA CAN AM 1/32 SLOT CAR
It was one of the hottest nights of the year as EMSA made it's way to
1/32 Slot Car for Round 6 of the series . Once again Alan and Trevor
had a chance to join the fray , 2/3's of it for Alan anyway . Alan had
a great showing in the 2 races he took part in .
Stage 6 of the rally series . We ran John Q's MSC Ford RS 2000 . It
really had a chance to stretch it's legs on the Windsor . With a 38
second gap between the top and bottom of the finishers . The areas
of concern seemed to be the esses , coming on the main straight and
braking at the end of it . Alan led the way by over 3 seconds to his
closest competitor . Tim's lead was cut down to just 7/10's of a sec.
The Rally Finally will be run at Greg's next week .
We had a bit of a shake up in the IROC
Race . We usually run Alan's
Scaleauto 1/24th Porsche's . This week Vic Brought his Fly racing 911's
and they turned out to be a kick and a challenge as well . We're not
sure if it was the lanes or the cars but in a couple lanes (blue and yellow)
the performance was way down . They did get a little better as the race
went on . Alan lead the way in the IROC
race as well . Then decided to
give us all a brake sitting out of the series race .
In the Carrera race it was quite the battle , not only the cars but the
temp as well . The cars seemed to like the track , except for Alex's
Lola . It was jumping out most of the night . the 917's were very fast
as they stretched their legs down the Windsor's Main Straight . Most
cars were able to get slowed down in time to make the corner , most !
My CAM 2 917 is fast but has no brakes at all . When your letting off
the trigger before the scoring sensor and still coming out in the esses
what you gona do . This was the last race of the series and it was the
closest race of the 6 we ran . Vic and Tim both ran 137 laps in round
one and 138 laps in the second . Vic wins the race by 20 feet but Tim
walks away with the series Championship . Great job to all of you .
Thanks to Alan for a hot night of racing , Lots of fun to
What was it I saw Alan drinking
Your secret's safe with us
Next week to Greg's For Rally Stage 7 and a Digital IROC
