Thanks John, looking forward to the race!

If Smoke's car is faster than mine during qualy, then have the Irish Coffee's BEFORE the race, if it is slower than mine, please have it AFTER!

Good Luck to all, especially ALL those single digit numbered cars with a 7 in it.....

Default 2018 Gr 5 Qualifying

I've just finished with the qualifying.* Track temp was 62 degrees, the voltage set at the typical 10 volts.* I usually qualify the cars in lane 2 since it's the most forgiving to me.* This is an amazing field with the top four under 4 seconds and top 12 under last years pole time!


1 3.9220--#1 Camber----Unbelievable handling, great balance, power

2 3.9370--#7 F1Fan----Super quick, agile, front runner for sure

3 3.9540--#24 Lanceltalove---Great power, balance, light car-nervous at limit

4 3.9840--#70 Smokieo----Smooth, balanced, great power, great car

5 4.0000--#79 Jimmyslots---Fantastic handling, smooth, nice power

6 4.0070--#10 CGYRacer----Great balance, smooth power

7 4.0160--#60 Chriswguy---Great balance, good power, easy to drive quickly

8 4.0310--#4 Aloha-----Great balance with drivable power, solid car

9 4.0470--#77 AJK-----Fantastic handling, smooth, could use more power here

10 4.0630--#62 Leadfoot---Good balance, smooth, could use more ponies

11 4.0930--#50 GAS41T----Great balance, could use more power at this track

12 4.0940--#82 Superslab----Smooth, predictable, good power

13 4.1410--#5 Redlynr------Soft motor hurts here, great balance, smooth

14 4.1560--#18 Steveew----Quick, great powers, bicycles at the limit

15 4.1880--#19 Audi1-----Loose at limit, deepest guide in the field drags occasionally

16 4.2190--#54 Lez-------Nice power, interesting chassis, chatters at limit

17 4.2500--#17 DMN17----Wheel hop off the 180’s hurt times, could use more motor here

18 4.2650--#52 Coquitlam Kid---Power comes in smoothly, loose off corners

19 4.2810--#33 Brumos RSR-----Smooth, only needs more power here

20 4.3440--#51 Slotracing Hawaii---Drives heavy, soft motor, chatter at limit

21 4.4220--#53 Arnoldn--------Nice power, chatters at limit

22 4.5000--#8 GT6-----------Rear weight bias hurts entry into the 180’s, soft motor

23 4.5160--#9 B53N1--------Long wheelbase struggles in the tight corners, soft motor

24 4.6090--#59 MrCarp------Noisy, rough sounding, bicycles at the limit



The crew comes over Saturday to run the race.* Please keep a couple of things in mind: I typically direct the race and don't always drive.* My track is technical and while the drivers are some of the finest proxy racers in the Pacific NW and literally have thousands of laps here.* They will be attempting to get you all the MOST laps in the allotted time NOT fastest laps.* So be pleasantly surprised if these qualifying times are equalled.* Then again the track temp may be warmer which always helps lap times.* Guess thats why we run these races.



Looking forward to this weekend and racing these fantastic cars.* Good luck to all.

Thanks Prof

Really appreciate you taking the time to qualify and post the results so promptly, on what is a windy & wet night a bit further North up the coast.

Not sure what I need to do to get ahead of that very fast car from Down Under, I only need the skin on my teeth!

Good luck to ALL

Chris

Great write up regarding the gualifying. As Mr F1 had told me that this year will be a steep learning curve for me this year. So guys don't worry I think I will hold on th the last place spot for everyone and I will look after it. Lol. Looking forward to the race on Saturday. Will it be live?

Cheers for now.

Paul aka MrCarp.

Race Day!

It's very early Sunday morning in Australia, maybe they are still asleep and perhaps I can fudge the results before they wake up to ensure a win for a green car...!

And once the dust settled the results were as follows:

1. 173.28--#1 Camber

2. 170.16--#7 F1Fan

3. 167.20--#79 Jimmyslots

4. 166.11--#50 GAS41T

5. 166.02--#4 Aloha

6. 165.07--#70 Smokieo

20. 149.4--#53 Arnoldn

21. 148.16--#19 Audi1

22. 147.09--#9 B53N1

23. 147.10--#17 DMN17

24. 140.16--#59 MrCarp


Wow, the top 5 all logged more laps than the winner last year. You have all spent your time wisely raising the bar yet again for what can be done with a Gr 5 car. Our group truly enjoyed running this amazing field again this year. See you next year with the new GT3 cars.

Good luck to you all in the following races and from everyone of the proxy racers here we wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and healthy New Year.
