Default Revo Slot GT2'S Round Results and Final Standings

ROUND 1 REVO SLOT GT2'S - CASCADES RACEWAY

On a beautiful August Monday night a handful of us got together for the 1st
Round of the Revo Slot GT2's . Dan had done some work in the garage with
his mobile AC unit , building exhaust vent spanning the length of the garage
door . Keeping the venue comfortable in the mid to high 70's .



LATE SUMMER KING ; Car , Roger's SLS GT3 Christian Crusader Mercedes .
The car won this years 4 Hour Sprint race in June and finished 2nd in July's
heat shortened 12 Hour . Roger's car is a great performer on both the big
tracks with a possible sweep of the ScaleAuto Races barring a stripped motor
screw rearing it's ugly head . The Last Series Champ our own Mr . Flippant led
things off setting the bar high clocking in with a 4.4 . Roger just 4 hundredths
off the pace . Dan was the only other one in the ballpark .

To Greg , To Dan and To Roger

LATE SUMMER IROC ; Car's , Dan's NSR Classics . Our second shot with this
set and most of us excluding myself had a pretty good handle on the Classics .
Greg lit it up right out of the box , Dan as usual was right there only a off or 2
costing his chance . The Green 917 in lane 3 had several wins this time around .
Greg ran a perfect IROC segment with 3 - 22 lamp heat win's

To Greg , To Dan and To RamJet

REVO SLOT GT2'S ; On to the Series Race , The cars ran very close with only
5 hundredth's separating the fastest from the slowest . That also gave us some
great heats . Roger had some issues with his Marcos with several offs in the heats
Most everyones tires had marbling problems , mine stayed fairly smooth through -
out the race . I used NSR Tire treatment oil as the rest used ScaleAuto tire cleaner
With that information things should be even closer next week .

To Pat , To Dan and To Greg


A big thanks to Dan For the Racing and keeping it cool

Next week it's to Vic's , Victory Lane and NSR Oil

Till Then

Pat

ROUND 2 REVO SLOT GT2'S - VICTORY LANE

To Vic's for the Second Round of the Revo Slot GT2's . After the first round the cars
showed us they were very close performance wise . The second round just confirmed
it . With heat wins speed across the board it came down to who could keep em in the
slot .




LATE SUMMER KING ; Car , RamJet's Chip Canassi Fly Daytona Prototype , The Red
White and Blue version . After winning 5 of the last 6 or so Series we might have to
just start calling Greg the King . Well he led things off again and once again set the
bar high . The only one the get in the 6's . RamJet 2 tenth's off the pace , myself 3
hundredths behind Rog . Not to bad on the times for a out of the box stock minus the
magnet Fly car . Thanks RamJet

To Greg ( His Highness ) , To RamJet and To Pat

LATE SUMMER IROC ; Cars , Vic's Fly Racing Porsche GT2's . Vic said he'd spent
some time on the cars and they ran accordingly . During the early heats it looked
like the Blue car in lane 2 was the car to beat . As the race went on the car in lane
3 had some wins .I'm not sure how it happened but I was able pull off a win with the
Red and Yellow car in lane 4 . This one went down to the last heat I was watching
and feeling good about my chances with the win in lane 4 . Then Vic pulls one out
of the hat , hitting 17 laps in lane 4 for the only time of the night , taking the segment
by one lap .

To Vic , To Pat and To RamJet

REVO SLOT GT2'S ; To the Series race , time to see how the Revo's would perform
on plastic for the second round . Handling and acceleration was about the same the
difference was in the braking , with the Revo's around a hundred grams thats a lot
to stop . We all proved it was a challenge as each of us took our turn at one time or
another watching the rest finish the heats . Vic proved theres no place like home for
the second time of the night this time with 6 heat wins on the board .

To Vic , To Pat and To RamJet

ROUND 3 REVO SLOT GT2'S - MASENCHAMPS

Back to the wood and Blairs for the 3rd Round of the Revo GT2's . The cars
loved Dan's track and ran very close at Masenchamps with only 3 hundredths
separating the fastest from the slowest car . No Lance's in EMSA




LATE SUMMER KING ; Car , My ScaleAuto Black Swan GT3 Porsche . The
real one looks so much better . Set up as we ran it in the Series a wile back .
I like my cars fairly loose , add the Red stripe ScaleAuto Foamy's and thats a
formula for some pretty quick times . His Highness led things off with a 5.5 ,
RamJet followed suit in the 5.5's but 4 hundredths to the good . I'm not sure
how but I found 3 tenth's with a low 5.2 . Vic with a mid 5.3 and Blair lands
on the podium 1,1 thousandth quicker than RamJet .

To Pat , To Vic and To Blair

LATE SUMMER IROC ; Cars , Blair's matching Slot- it Team Matra's with the
only difference in the cars was the number and a colored stripe at the front ,
side and and rear wing stanchions . RamJet figured it out , I raced the wrong
car only once but it didn't matter 20 laps off the pace . The rest all landed at
50 lap's , with the final positions being decided by position points . One heck
of a race for second .

to RamJet , To Greg and To Vic

http://slotcarillustrated.com/portal...1&d=1535057531

REVO SLOT GT2'S ; On to the Revos . This was strange race , a great race but
one that's really different . Vic had his troubles at the end of the main straight
losing his brakes in lane 2 twice . Ramjet had a contact off at the beginning of
the squeeze section early in a heat costing him a chance at a podium . Blair just
kept collecting laps . Greg had a couple offs but must of been late in the heats .
I lost my finger for a moment in the middle of a heat costing me about 5 laps .
Again lap totals were close and position points had a hand in the final standings
All and all a great race with all racers landing heat wins , a good way to finish the
night .

To Pat , To Greg and To Blair

ROUND 4 REVO SLOT GT2'S - THE BRICKYARD

Out to Bob's and the BrickYard for the 4th Round of the Revo GT2's . With
the Summer season in full swing and Bob's schedule it's been a 3 to 4 months
sense we've ran at the Yard and it showed through the first couple segments .

SUMMER KING ; Car , Roger's orange SRC Porsche 908 Long Tail Endurance
Racer . Running a 26k ProSlot Motor , plenty quick decent brakes and pretty
good handling . We all felt the shock of the BrickYard and it showed as the gap
between the regulars was only 3 tenth's top to bottom .

To Pat , To Vic and To Greg

SUMMER IROC ; Cars , Bob's Slot-It Alfa 33/3 Classic's . The tough part
they were all Red making it a challenge keep track of who's was who's . We
all had the same view , some a little better than others but you know what
I mean . Well Bob knows the track , knew the cars and almost pulled it off
missing the top step of the Podium by one stinking lap to Roger who as
always wasn't afraid of anything . He ran em like he stole em taking the
nights second Segment .

To Roger , To Bob and To Vic

http://slotcarillustrated.com/portal...1&d=1535733866

REVO SLOT GT2'S ; By the Series Race a couple of us kind of figured it
out . We knew our cars and what lane we were running in . Some incredible
Heats going down to the timer . Some falling short with self off's trying to
keep up in the fray . This week we had the biggest disparity in lap times
with Roger leading the field just about a tenth separation between top and
bottom . A fun night at the BrickYard .

To Pat , To RamJet and To Roger

ROUND 5 REVO SLOT GT2'S - SCALERACING CENTER

Back at the Center for the 5th Round of the Revo GT2's . Mark the Delivery Man
joined us for the night and what a night it was . With some of the closes races
we've had , the IROC and Series Race neck and neck till Vic and I lost our fingers
in the final heats .

SUMMER KING ; Car , Roger's Carrera Mercedes DTM , this time set up with a 37k
Pro Slot motor . We thought we had it figured out , just have Alan go first . Well ,
thats not it as he set the bar high . High enough to stay atop the stage till the last
of the regulars gave it a shot . Greg was 2 tenth's of the pace , 4 for me . Vic just
2 hundrenth's ahead of Greg . Then Roger got on the track , raced it like he owned
it and took the stage . With that Stage Roger leaps from 5th to 2nd in the standings .
Greg you'll still be first up next week

To Roger , To Alan and To Vic

SUMMER IROC ; Cars , My Spirit C65 Courage LMP's . Running with quite a bit
of motor for urethan tires on a routed track . One has to be fairly patient with
these cars at this venue or you'll be doing a lot of running with crash and dash .
Right Mark ! He had a rough night in the Segment , a whole lot different than
the 24 scale racers . Vic and Alan were neck and neck going into the last heat
then Vic lost his finger , twice ! Ended up in a 3 way tie for second , landing in
3rd by 8 sectors behind Roger .

To Alan , To Roger and To Vic

REVO SLOT GT2'S Wow the cars loved the track , mine did . This time around
Roger and I had a hell of a go for 5 heats . As a whole it was a great race with
most everyone showing their stuff . Alan and RamJet racing steady & consistent .
Vic doing the best he could with what he had , Greg's car had good speed with
some handling issues . As in the IROC race One fell from grace , You guessed
it , in my second to last heat I had 3 off's and like Vic fell to the last step of
the Podium . Finally quicker than Roger but couldn't stay in the slot !

To Roger , To Alan and To Pat

ROUND 6 REVO SLOT GT2'S - FOSSUMHEIM

Single steps up to the track for me , I'm walking much better with my new knee but
it's pretty steep and still a good choice . Think most every one but Ramjet use the
single step method . Home track advantage .

LATE SUMMER KING ; Car , Greg's NSR Gulf 977 Porsche GT3 . I can't really
remember what was different about it except we used a wireless controller with no
adjustments . Way to much brake for me 2 tenths off the pace , Vic a tenth off
himself . The rest figured it out and all landed in the 7.7's . Leading the way the 2
stepper him self .

To RamJet , To Greg and To Roger

LATE SUMMER IROC ; At Ramjets request I brought my NINCO 997 Porsche
GT3's . All and all a pretty decent set of racers , with lap times in the ballpark of the
Series cars . They always give a close race , this week the Gulf car in lane 2 was the
class of the field . All but one of us set our fast lap for the segment with the Blue car
With only 1 lap separating the top 2 on the Podium .

To Pat , To RamJet and To Greg

http://slotcarillustrated.com/portal...1&d=1537152027

REVO SLOT GT2's ; On to the Series Race , a race I'd like to forget . I don't
think I've come off this much in the whole series . RamJet repaired his controller
and it showed staying in the slot and getting his laps . The rest of us all had issues
with non contact offs . Half way through The second rotation the culprit was spotted
My car was bouncing down the track , upon inspection several globs of rubber found
on my rears . They looked like F1 tires after a cool down lap at the end of Grand
Prix . No one was sure of it was from tire degradation , cleaning of RamJet's track
or rubber on the tires from the week before . A great run for RamJet , Roger and
Greg .

To RamJet , To Roger and To Greg

The King car was an NSR with the oXigen digital chip, but rather than putting too many knobs in your hands (SCP), I put too few (ARC). Next time, it will be with the SCP and you can adjust whatever you want.

No biggie , I thought you said something about oXigen but the memory is not what it once was .
The problem was't the controller but with the hand in which it laid .

See you tonight !

Well, yeah, but no one uses controllers without any adjustments any more. I did it mainly to show that oXigen can be as cheap as a $30 controller if you want.

ROUND 7 REVO SLOT GT2'S - RAINIER RACEWAYS

Up to Auburn And Greg's for the 7th Round of the Revo Slot GT2's . Upon arrival
I noticed something new to the left of Greg's building station . Wow , a 3D printer
Greg had talked about and it is pretty cool . He's been busy , with a new Dunlop
bridge and some new user friendly curbing on the 180 R1 hairpin leading on to the
computer straight . There will be more track accessories down the road (can't wait)

LATE SUMMER KING ; Greg really went all out to slip from the top of the King
Standings picking Roger's SCX Rally Car . Hoping it would take a couple Stages for
the motor to warm up . Huge Fail (depending on how one looks at it ) He set the
pace by nearly 4 tenth's . Vic was next closest as the rest of us hung our heads in
shame .

To Greg , To Vic and To Pat


LATE SUMMER IROC ; Cars , Gregs Fly Racing BMW's . It was all about the Red
Bull M3 in the first rotation as the inside lane was lacking grip . We survived the slide
and before the second go we gave the Yellow car a quick tape rolling . That made all
the difference one could ask for . The cleaning gave the inside lane a slight advantage
but much better racing the second time around .

to Pat , To Vic and to RamJet

http://slotcarillustrated.com/portal...1&d=1537572364

REVO SLOT GT2'S ; After the clag event last week I was waiting to see what would
be the story at EMSA's tightest Venue . Well tires didn't play a major part at all unless
one forgot to clean their's . Some of the best racing of the night , untimely offs here
and there , with most self induced . Who would know at the end a rare finish by RamJet
tied with Vic in the lap department but talking the nights finale with the most heat wins .
Thats 2 in a row for RamJet , tightening things up for the final race in the Series .

8th AND FINAL ROUND REVO SLOT GT2'S - VICTORY LANE

To Vic's for the Revo GT2 finale . With RamJets's late series charge he has a
shot for the title . K Mark a regular at ScaleRacing Center made it all the way
from Silverdale for his first race with the club . By the end of the night he was
in most every race taking heat wins in both the IROC and Series segments .

LATE SUMMER KING ; Car , RamJet's Yellow Pioneer Mustang . What can I say
Greg leads it off sets the bar and holds everyone off . We might have to change
it to Greg of the Hill . Just 5 hundredth's between the Podium . Another Series
Win for His Highness .

To Greg , To Pat and To Vic

LATE SUMMER IROC ; Cars , Vic's IRL open wheel racers . A tough call for Mark
with his first run at Victory Lane , add first race on plastic . It's a different ball-
game altogether . Everyone chalked up a heat win but yours truly . RamJet
led the field staying in he slot and sporting 2 heat wins . Mark grabs his first
heat win , gaining confidence with every lap on the track .

To RamJet , To Vic and To Roger

http://slotcarillustrated.com/portal...1&d=1538252334

REVO SLOT GT2'S ; To the Series Finale , I started out strong in the early rounds
and RamJet has won the last 2 races to make it close going into final . We both
started out in good shape , keeping out of trouble and getting our laps . With a
new guy in the mix it was time to stay on your toe's . Mark was never in the way
but he also raced and I'd have to say I can't remember him taking anyone out .
Roger's Marcos had the leg's for this night , he also had some selfies along the
way . RamJet led the laps , Roger had the win's and I ended up somewhere in-
between .
