Default Fly Racing Round Results And Final Standings

FLY RACING , ROUND 1 - VICTORY LANE



To Vic's for the opening Round of the Fly Racing slot cars . Looks like Roger
and his F40 are going to be the car to beat . Greg's series winning RedBull
M3 from the last time we ran them is just a tic off the pace , with the rest
of us falling in line .

SPRING KING ; Car , Roger's Slot-It GT40 . Pretty much a stock runner
and your typical Slot-It performance . In other words a great little car . Greg
was determined not to be in the lead off spot next week clocking in with a
7.6 , Roger took it down to the 7.4's . 7.3 for Vic and myself . Greg got his
wish .

To Pat , To Vic and To Roger

SPRING IROC ; Cars , Vic's Pro Slot GT2 Porsche's . After our last run Vic
spent some time on the yellow car in hopes of picking up some performance
It worked as the car in lane 1 stayed in the heats with the others . Lanes 3
and 4 were definitely the class of the segment which made the round more
competitive for all the cars .

To Vic , To Ramjet and To Greg

FLY RACING GT'S ; Well it had been 5 years sense we ran the Racing GT's
and in the beginning it showed . As the race went on things got better for most
of us . Like I said Roger's F40 was super quick but Greg's M3 could hang with
him , even take him a time or two . I slipped in a heat win here and there and
the Series race actually in a rare occurrence gave us the closest race of the
night with only 2 laps separating the Podium . A great way to start a Series

To Roger , To Greg and To Pat

Thanks to Vic for the racing and the NCAA Finale (sorry Joe )

Next week it's to RamJet's and Fossumheim

FLY RACING ROUND 2 - FOSSUMHEIM

To RamJet's for the second Round of the Fly Racing GT's , it's a pretty
loose term as the cars cover a broad spectrum off classes . We have
2 seaters , 4 seaters , GT's and Sedan's . The chassis are comparable
and performance within a tenth or 2 , making for some great racing .
The best part is the race time , with each of us getting 17 heats at the
throttle . Though we all pay attention during are Marshaling duties ,
I think it's unanimous we enjoy the Racing much more than watching .

SPRING KING ; Car , Roger's Revo Slot Repsol Porsche GT2 . In a rare
occurrence Greg wasn't the lead off man so inheriting the much coveted
position myself , I gave it a go . Logging a decent stage with a 7.5 , After
Vic's 7.6 I felt pretty good about it . Then Roger takes it down to 7.4 and
Greg to the low 7.5's . The car ran great and is due to be a series in the
near future .

To Roger , To Greg and To Pat

SPRING IROC ; Cars , RamJet's Slot-It Alfa 33/3's . It's been wile since
RamJet's Alfa's have been off the shelf but one could tell Rog has spent
some time on them . With a swap on lane position with 2 of the cars it
made the heats even closer . Another race that went down to last heat ,
with the ball in Greg's hands for the win . Then with a last second off I
receive the gift . Greg took it well . With this finish only 1 point
separates the top 4 in the standings .

To Pat , to Greg and To RamJet

FLY RACING GT'S ; For the second round a couple of us seemed to be
closing the gap on Roger and his F40 as the heats and number of wins
are much closer than Round 1 . It's been tougher on RamJet and Vic as
the Alfa and Porsche are running a little top heavy (more Led !) . The
difference in this round was a early heat tap out from me on Greg and
Roger . It was still close but would have been even closer . At the end
of the night it's a 3 way tie for first place in the Series Standings .

To Pat , To Greg and To Roger

ROUND 5 FLY RACING GT'S - RAINIER RACEWAYS

Up to Auburn for the 3rd Round of the Fly Racing GT's . Upon my arrival I saw
Greg had stashed some Nutter Butters for the Bride ( Happy Wife Happy Life )
I'm not sure how this is going to effect Super Joe or myself but I made sure I
got my share before Vic and Joe showed up .



SPRING KING ; Car Roger's latest purchase , the Micheal Shank Ford Riley
Daytona Prototype . A beautifully livered race car , pretty much stock except
for having the magnet removed and a set of N22's on the rear . Roger led
things off and set the bar high . I was next a nearly a tenth off the pace . Vic
in-between and then Greg only 3 one thousandth's behind Vic . A close Stage
with less than a tenth separating the top 4 .

To Roger , To Vic and To Greg

SRING IROC ; Cars , well we gave it 3 tries and ended up running Greg and
Rogers Revo Slot Porsche GT 2's . We've run them in the King before but this
was our first side by side event . Wow super fast , in the first heat Vic didn't
make it through turn one . At that point every one turned their controllers to
the minimum sensitivity and full brakes . The Cars were still a hand full but
gave us a great race with RamJet and I tied in laps . I got the nod with 2 more
position points .

To Pat , To RamJet and To Vic

http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...1&d=1524424143

FLY RACING GT'S ; To the Series Race , we had some great heat's and some
moments we might want to forget . Like Vic's early off curtesy of Super Joe or
RamJets heat restart . That through no fault of his own cost him 6 laps and a
potential position point . Greg dominated the race never leaving the slot and
having one of, if not the fastest laps of the night . Roger and I had the same
laps and bonus points , this time Roger gets the nod with the 3rd tie breaker ,
quickest lap time . With the win Greg takes the lead in the close Series .

To Greg , To Roger and To Pat

ROUND 4 FLY RACING GT'S - FOSSUMHEIM

A last minute venue change for the 4th race of the Series and as usual RamJet
steps up to the plate . I'm sure most everyone would and in some cases have
done the same so just a quick thanks to all of you that continue make it happen .

SPRING KING ; Car , Rogers Slot-It Alfa 155 V6 DTM - wide N22 rears and
some sort of go fast motor , very open with changeable brushes super
fast and pretty strong in the brake department . Well Roger drove it like he
owned it and once again set the bar high . I was next and stunk it up , Vic was
just off the pace but in the game and Greg clocked in at 3rd . A dominating Stage
for Sir Roger .

To Roger , To Vic and To Greg

SPRING IROC ; Cars , Spirit Pug 406 Silhouette's . A great race with everyone
having some sort of off , mine driver , was total racer fail others through contact
or some sort of miscue . The offs evened out the playing field and made it close
race . Vic's was later in his heat which gave him the victory by 4 laps and a tie
in laps for second .

To Vic , To Greg and To RamJet

http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...1&d=1525021820

FLY RACING GT'S ; Finishing the night with the GT's , RamJet running his new
Yellow Menards Corvette . In practice it looked like the car to beat . As the race
started it held true with Ramjet winning or holding on to second through the
early heats . Greg's M3 was making some sort of thumping noise causing a
handeling problem with the car . After a quick inspection a spot of superglue
was found on one of his tires . A tire change was allowed and Greg was back
in the race . To little to late , though Greg had the most heat wins but the hole
to was to deep to recover . I had the Lap lead but in a rare occurrence RamJet
wins the Round with Bonus Points . Great Race RamJet .

ROUND 5 FLY RACING GT'S - MASENCHAMPS

To Blairs for the 5th Round of the Racing Gt's and I was shocked to find out
that Mr. Blair didn't have a Fly Racing Gt . I know thats a shock most anyone
who knows him . I was able to assemble a chassis and a body but didn't have a
spare EVO2 motor so this car became a club effort . I recall in an earlier Round
Roger used one of Vic's floaters wile his was being shipped from Spain . Vic's
motor was still out of the car , and there you have it .

SPRING KING ; Car , Mr Slot Car McLaren F1 GTR . The car ran smooth and
fast on Masenchamps . Roger led things off and blistered a sub 5 by nearly a
tenth . Looked even better after Vic was off the pace by 8 one hundredths . I
took Rogers time down 8 one hundredths myself . Felt pretty good for about
a minute tell Greg out leaned me at the tape by 5 one thousandths .

To Greg , To Pat and To Vic

http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...1&d=1525656952

SPRING IROC ; Hard to believe a guy without a Fly Racing car could surprise
us but he did . Blair did it again rolling a new set of Revo Slot Porsche GT2's .
I was pretty excited so excited my brake clip came off the post and my car
didn't make it through the turn at the end of the main straight . That was
pretty much my night in the IROC segment . Blair , RamJet and Victor had
a different race , staying in the slot and getting laps . A great race for the 3 .
At the end it was Blair by 1 lap over Ramjet and Vic one behind RamJet , 2
laps separating the Podium . Blair !

To Blair , To RamJet and To Vic

http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...1&d=1525656952

FLY RACING GT'S ; To the Series race , all the cars had speed except a orange
934 that had some trouble in the turns and at times in the braking department .
Vic took it well . RamJet had some Coy cornerish offs in the infields hairpin .
In fact I think he was 3 for 3 . Blair just kept on counting lap after lap . Roger
and I were racing hard for the elusive 22 laps in a heat . Roger tried to hard
a couple times and left the Raceway . At the end Krypton Racing covered the
top 2 steps of the Podium .

To Pat , To Blair and To Roger

ROUND 6 FLY RACING GT'S - SCALERACING CENTER

Making our Series visit to Alan's and the Center for the 6th Round of the Fly Racing
GT's . It's turning out to be a great series with the standings changing most every
week . Seeing 4 racers and 4 different types of cars all having round wins . It will be
interesting to see what happens here as the Center is a venue that rewards speed .



SPRING KING ; Car , Roger gave us treat offering his ScaleAuto , William's bodied
1/24th scale Formula 1 racer . Definitely something totally out of the norm (NORM!)
Roger started things off and drove it like he owned it clocking a high 8.5 . Greg was
next about a half a tenth off , I landed somewhere in-between . We all held or own
till Alain hooked up , blasting a 8.503 . ( we need to make Alan go first ) really !
Thanks Roger it was a blast ! SPDUWTM

To Alan , to Roger and To Pat

SPRING IROC ; Cars , Bob's 6 Slot-It Group C's , well actually 5 of Bob's and one
of Roger's . Shod with ScaleAuto yellow foamy's . It was the first time on the track
for Bob's cars and it took a couple heats to shake them out . As the race went on
things got better . At the end the track owner took the segment by 2 laps with 4
laps covering the Podium . I think we'll be seeing the Group C's once again this
Monday at Bob's .

To Alan , to RamJet and To Roger

FLY RACING GT'S ; To the Series Race , well we know Roger's F40 has plenty of
speed . RamJet's Corvette shows it has some of it's own . In the early heats it
was pretty close . In the second or third heat Roger and I had a great race
never more moe the 3 feet apart exchanging the lead 2 and 3 times a lap . It
was a blast . Alan started out slow with his loaner , discovered the braids we're
dirty . A quick clean and he was backing the race . Roger checked out and never
looked back . After a couple offs I was out of the picture but was fortunate to
have another neck an neck heat , this time with RamJet only to loose at the
end to a roll out . A happy ending to a forgettable series race for RamJet .
Again 4 laps separating the Podium .

To Roger , To Alan and To Pat

ROUND 7 FLY RACING GT'S - THE BRICKYARD

To Baba Loo's for the 7th Round of the Racing GT's . On a hot Spring day it was nice
to race down below in a cool venue . Though the basement stays pretty cool I was a
bit shocked with the lack of music this time around as I'm always prepared for the
sound distractions of Paramount or who ever else is thumping in the background .


SPRING KING ; Car , A sample of our next Series . A Slot-It McLaren fitted with a
angelwinder pod and the rest of the running gear from the Slot-It Modern LMP cars .
I have to say it's pretty impressive , probably over a half a second quicker than the
stock configuration . Roger lead things off clocking in with a high 6.9 , I was next
about 5 hundredths below . Vic was 3 thousands off the pace with Bob just over a
tenth behind Vic . Should be a great Series !

To Pat , To Vic and To Bob

SPRIND IROC ; Cars , Bob's Slot-It Group C's . We ran them Last week at Alan's
and were pretty impressed . With some pre race tweaking they gave us even more
this time around . The Cars are quick and fairly even which made for some close
racing . Roger must of remembered something from last week as he takes the win
for the second week in a row . 3 Laps ahead of RamJet , the talker lands in
third .

To Roger , To RamJet and To Baba Loo

http://slotcarillustrated.com/portal...1&d=1526842120

FLY RACING GT'S ; On to the Series race , things are staying close in the Racing
GT's with Roger nipping at my heals . Roger's F40 is super quick but my Beamer
has found something over the last couple week thats keeping it in the game . Vic's
Porsche woes continue and finally we manage to talk Vic into shelving the 911 and
giving a BMW a try . Big mistake as he win's his last 3 heats and takes his first
win of the Series . The Series is going down to the last round .

EIGTH AND FINAL ROUND FLY RACING GT'S - FOSSUMHEIM

To RamJet's for the 3rd time in the Series . They say the 3rd times a charm
and for Vic it held true . 3rd in the lap department but dominated with wins
in 8 of his 12 heats . Glad he only used the spare BMW in the last 2 rounds .

SPRING KING ; Car , Greg's 1/24 Carrera Corvette , modified with a mystery
motor . Maybe - maybe a little light on the torque end of the spectrum but
plenty of speed and brakes . I was first and stunk it up , Greg stepped it up
by a tenth and a half . Vic landed somewhere in the middle and we won't talk
about RamJet's Stage .

To Greg , To Vic and To Pat

SPRING IROC ; Car's RamJet's Fly 917's . The nearly Vintage Fly cars ran
well , in-fact they were just off the pace of the Racing Gt's . Pushing them
hard one might be able to log 15 lap heat . As in the Series finale it ended
up being about position points with the winner totaling only third in laps .

To Pat , To Vic and To RamJet

FLY RACING GT'S ; It was a strange night last Monday I started out running
fast and steady through the first rotation . Vic and Greg were right there ,
RamJet was just off the pace with dirty tires . We gave him a tire cleaning
and he was right back in the game . Starting the second round Vic and Greg
started putting the pressure on and unfortunately I had nothing to answer
them back . RamJet saw me loosing pace to and took advantage as well . A
tough night for me but we've all had them . Great race you guys !

To Vic , To Greg and To RamJet
