Hi Guys,

I have been hauling the results around with me for 2 weeks now. It's about time I got them up. This is the Dec 15th Race. It was a quiet afternoon but the track was in good shape and seemed fast. So here is how it went down......

BRM Group C

Steve - 112 52' (P)
Charles - 110 73' (P)
Ronnie - 110 59' (P)
Glen - 110 9' (P)
Darren - 106 18' (P)
Dave - 103 3' (P)

Fast Laps

Steve - 6.283 (Green)
Charles - 6.334 (Green)
Ronnie - 6.351 (Blue)
Glen - 6.372 (Red)
Darren - 6.580 (Blue)
Dave - 6.756 (Green)

Steve ran away with it but 2nd place was Real close!!! Great Racing Guys! Now onto the Best Class in Slot Car Racing............Scaleautos!

Scaleauto GT Challenge

Ronnie - 107 28' (RSR)
Steve - 106 40' (Cup)
Charles - 105 7' (M3 GTR)
Glen - 105 1' (Jaguar)
Dave - 11 (M3 GTR) (Technical Difficulties)

Fast Laps

Ronnie - 6.562 (Green)
Steve - 6.707 (Green)
Charles - 6.703 (Green)
Glen - 6.749 (Red)
Dave - 7.292 (Red)

Fun Stuff! Seems like a new pair of shoes got my car back up to speed.....and then some. Can't wait for Sunday! Now onto the Blistering Fast BRM 917's. We had 7 of them out to run.

BRM Porsche 917

Ronnie - 95 6'
Steve - 91 2'
Charles - 90 7'
Dave - 89 3'
Darren - 89 1'
Colton - 88 41'
Gabriel - 85 7'

Fast Laps

Ronnie - 6.088 (Blue)
Steve - 6.354 (Blue)
Charles - 6.388 (Blue)
Dave - 6.357 (Green)
Darren - 6.490 (Green)
Colton - 6.477 (Blue)
Gabriel - 6.652 (Green)

These cars are a handful! They are Super Quick and require a concentration level that is just not seen in any of our other 1/24th Scale Classes. We run these cars a Volt higher than the Group C's and many seems to struggle to get a better lap time out of them then the Group C cars. Focus Gentleman, the speed will then come.

Tonight is Race Night!!! The 1/32's are up and I am looking forward to a night of racing! I hope to see everyone out.

Great Race Gents! Steve's Car is BACK!!! Fast as snot and it doesn't make a peep. Gleno had a Great Run too!! 1st through 4th is anyone's race, look at those fast laps! Now onto the Scaleautos!

Scaleauto GT Challenge

Could our Fast Laps be any closer!!?? Close Fast Racing is the name of this class! Drive it like a real car and the car goes fast. Slide the rear end all over the track and you will do nothing but go backwards in a hurry. This is a true Drivers Class! Now lets move onto the BRM Porsche 917's.

These Cars are Bad Fast! Quite a handful at 12 Volts. It was a Super Fun Afternoon of racing guys! I am looking forward to a big turnout tomorrow afternoon. Green Flag Drops at 2pm Sharp and the South Loop is up. See you all tomorrow!

The track was Stinky Fast last Sunday! Every Record fell except for fast lap in Porsche 917's!!! I am sure it will be even better tomorrow.

Hi Guys,

Tomorrow is Race Day for the 1/24th's so here is the race report from last Sunday to hype it up a little. With the additional size and detail these cars feel just like the real thing to me. If you are a 1/32 scale slot racer and have never tried running a 1/24th scale BRM, come on in and you can have some laps with one of my cars totally for FREE!!!

Now onto the results......

Steve - 111 36' (P)
Charles - 110 18' (P)
John - 109 76' (T)
Ravi - 109 60' (T)
Darren - 106 32' (P)
Colton - 105 46' (P)
Dave - 101 23' (P)

Glen set the Fast Lap of the race in his first heat before the car broke a lead wire. 6 of the 10 Drivers were in the 30's or faster!....and Colton was almost there in his first BRM Group C race ever! You guys are good!

Now onto my favorite class of Slot Car.

Ravi was Crusin! He took my Fast Lap record and finished 2nd overall! Way to go Ravi!

Colton bought a Z4 GTR, took it out of the box, slapped some Pro Comp 3's on it and ran an awesome race! He was within a tenth of my car with it after spending 20 minutes on it. WOW! He even beat his dad.

Dave was having a great run and then an accident definitely shortchanged him on his result. Look out for him tomorrow Gents!

Too Much Fun guys! Now onto the BRM 917's.

Colton - 6.465 (Blue)
Charles - 6.445 (Blue)
Dave - 6.282 (Purple)
Gabriel - 6.643 (Red)
David - 7.046 (Purple)

Can you tell Darren likes these cars?.... Always a great result for him in this class.

Dave's car was FAST! He set the second fastest lap of the race.

Ravi in his second week of being a Triple Threat got himself to the podium. Nice work Ravi.

Well, I did it. I am the First Official Member of the Triple Crown Club. Now that I have proven it can be done (not an easy task with the guys that race here!), I am going to offer a Prize for anyone that can get it done also. Please see the Official Triple Crown Thread "stickied" to the top of the forum where the rules are.

Thanks to everyone that Races here. Sundays are a TON of Fun! See you all tomorrow.

Hi Guys,

I got here early yesterday morning and did some testing with a new cleaner for the Scaleauto Pro Comp Foams. I really like the results I had. The lane seems unaffected by the new cleaner even after running 100 laps and then going back to a 1/32 scale car with Super Tires on it. The silicone tired car was almost immediately back to the lap times it turned before the 1/24 was run with the new tire cleaner used on the foams.

So today we are going to try it out on everyones cars. It should equalize the gap between fresh out of the box foams and ones that have been on a car for a few weeks.

Get Ready Gentleman.............the Scaleautos are going to FLY today!

See you all in a few hours.

Ron

BRM Group C

Ronnie - 112 20' (P)
Steve - 111 51' (P)
Glen - 111 46' (P)
Ravi - 109 61' (T)

Good Run Gents! The Track was really really good!!! Scaleatuos are up!

Scaleauto GT Challenge

Steve - 110 23' (R8)
Ronnie - 109 20' (RSR)
Glen - 106 77' (Jaguar)
Ravi - 105 19' (Z4)

Ravi - 6.532 (G)
Dave - 6.756 (B)
Joe - 7.224 (R)

Well..........thats was Fast! The Tire Cleaner seemed to work out nicely. It did not seem to effect the rubber tired 917's right after either. We shall see this Friday night what the track is like for the Silicones.

Steve owns ALL the Scaleauto Records right now! Very nice man! The North Loops Records are going to fall this Sunday as well!

A word to the wise gentleman, go easy with the cleaner. If you "wash" off the Pro Comp 3 Markings on the sidewalls you will have to buy new tires. Read the rules regarding tire markings.

Can't wait for Sunday! Now onto the 917's.................just too much Fun we are having over here!

BRM Porsche 917

Ronnie - 94 33'
Steve - 90 73'
Glen - 90 62'
Ravi - 89 21'
Dave - 89 15'
Gabriel - 87 38'

Ravi - 6.329 (G)
Dave - 6.374 (P)
Gabriel - 6.419 (P)
Bill - 6.764 (P)
David - 7.115 (B)

Nothing like a Sprint Race with the Fastest Cars we run right at the end of the day! Good Fun Guys! I can't wait for Sunday when the Big Cars come back out.

Friday night is 1/32 Scale American Iron and Open Mods..........North Loop is up. My cars are ready to go!

See all you guys Friday night.

Hi Guys,

What an Afternoon! Talk about close racing! It wasn't a huge turnout but this didn't stop us from having some of the best racing we have seen in the 5 years of running the race program. Lets move right into BRM Group C's..........

BRM Group C

Ronnie - 110 61' (P)
Gabriel - 110 60' (P) (Faster Fast Lap)
Ravi - 110 60' (T)
Steve - 110 46' (P)
Glen - 110 35' (P)
Charles - 109 36' (P)
Dave - 103 57' (P)

Fast Laps

Ronnie - 6.358 (R)
Gabriel - 6.228 (G)
Ravi - 6.262 (B)
Steve - 6.342 (R)
Glen - 6.323 (B)
Charles - 6.362 (R)
Dave - 6.526 (G)

That had to be the closest race we have ever run! Gabriel finished 2nd overall! Way to go buddy! and he managed to set the Fast Lap Record for North Loop! This kid is finally coming around.

After 12 minutes of racing we had 5 of the 7 drivers on the same lap. Ravi and Gabriel finished in the exact same spot! Unreal!.......which was just a foot behind me!

Now onto the Scaleautos, with everyone on fresh clean tires the Record board surely was under attack...........let's see how it turned out.

Scaleauto GT Challenge

Ronnie - 109 13' (RSR)
Dave - 107 66' (M3)
Steve - 107 47' (R8)
Ravi - 104 76' (Z4)
Charles - 103 7' (M3)
Glen - 94 3' (Jag)

Fast Laps

Ronnie - 6.487 (B)
Dave - 6.313 (B)
Steve - 6.491 (B)
Ravi - 6.539 (B)
Charles - 6.652 (B)
Glen - 6.766 (R)

Well, I am pretty sure everyone's cars went faster than they have ever gone! Dave managed to set a Blistering Fast Lap of 6.313!!! He took the fast lap record by a landslide!!! And managed to finish 2nd overall! Great Run Dave!

Looks like the new approved tire cleaner is working very well. Now onto 5 wide at 12 Volts! BRM 917 Racing is quickly becoming the most popular class! We had 9 entries.

BRM Porsche 917

Ronnie - 93 13'
Charles - 89 63'
Steve - 89 47'
Glen - 89 18'
Ravi - 86 34'
Dave - 85 35'
Gabriel - 83 23'
David - 75 70'
Brock - 72 33'

Fast Laps

Ronnie - 6.150 (B)
Charles - 6.303 (B)
Steve - 6.230 (G)
Glen - 6.350 (R)
Ravi - 6.460 (G)
Dave - 6.340 (G)
Gabriel - 6.409 (R)
David - 7.069 (G)
Brock - 7.023 (B)

Man these cars are animals! Overpowered and short wheelbase equals a handful of a car. Don't get me wrong, they are stuck to the track. Maybe too stuck!

Another Fantastic day of racing in the books Gents. Thanks to everyone that came out!!! 1/24th Scale Sundays are just the most fun!!! Without you guys it just wouldn't be the same.

See all you guys Friday night. Rennsport and Open Mods are up.

Sorry to report but I will be missing the races today.

Good news is the new Z4 is looking hot!

Ron if you can set a side two pairs of Z4 mounting plates (the ones that attach to the plastic body) it would be greatly appreciated.

Enjoy the super Sunday racing lads!!!

No worries Charlie! Steve......get better fast, your records are dropping like flies.

We actually did a full Scaleauto Tech. It went well for most and others got reprimanded a little. A few notes for all to read........

- The Details matter. Wipers, side mirrors, inserts, lens covers and everything else.
- Front wheels on the track. If your plate that the guide mounts to is screwed in from the bottom you need to reverse it and screw it down from the top. Then shim the guide back down to the track.
- RE - The tire cleaner. Everyone had a chance to see the test today. Again, less is more here. Your tires are going to get fresh and fast as new. NO Faster, even if you let them soak in the stuff! Run your tires on some glass or a mirror. If they leave any type of mark.........do I need to continue?

This is all an effort to preserve the track for all the different racing that we do. So far it is working fantastically. I put a 1/32 on the track today after everyone left and it was Flyin!

Race results goin up tomorrow. 3 Races, 3 different winners! Awesome!

Thanks to Everyone that came out today. Sorry to Brock, Darren and Colton for not getting started early enough to get the 917 race done before 5. It would have been great to have all 3 of you racing with us. Next week I think we should start at 1pm.

Hi Guys,

As promised, the full race report from yesterday. It was a PACKED House! It is too bad we didn't get started earlier or it would have been a better entered 917 race. I think this week we will try to get started at 1pm instead of 2pm. If you guys can please get here a little earlier, the store open at 11am but I am often here earlier than that as well.

The Track is open for practice from Open to 1pm. It will then shut down to start the Group C Race. This will ensure that we are finished by 4:30 so everyone can be home for dinner about 5.

Now onto the results.........

BRM Group C

Ravi - 112 38' (T)
Glen - 112 20' (P)
Ronnie - 112 6' (P)
John - 109 6' (T)
Gabriel - 108 28' (P)
Darren - 108 17' (P)
Dave - 103 5' (P)
Joe - 102 74' (P)
Colton - 102 48' (P)
Jim T - 98 9' (P)
Bill D - 95 45' (P)

Fast Laps

Ravi - 6.226 (G)
Glen - 6.260 (R)
Ronnie - 6.345 (R)
John - 6.453 (G)
Gabriel - 6.302 (B)
Darren - 6.555 (G)
Dave - 6.676 (B)
Joe - 6.815 (G)
Colton - 6.622 (B)
Jim T - 7.118 (B)
Bill D - 6.973 (G)

What a Race!!! Ravi got the Win, put a Toyota on the top step of the podium and missed the lap time track record by .003 seconds and the total distance record by 15 feet!!! Awesome Run Ravi!!!

Johnny Bokor showed up and came to race! He got his best result ever just off the podium.

Gabriel was on a great run and suffered the wrath of a bad marshal. It cost him a better result no doubt. A great effort none the less.

Jim Toye was back out! It was good to have him and his humor in the house! Come on back anytime buddy.

Bill Dice ran his first BRM Group C race ever and got the car into the 6's. Very Nice Bill.

Now onto the highly anticipated Scaleauto Race. Records were gonna fall, the question was by how much.

Scaleauto GT Challenge

Ronnie - 112 62' (RSR)
Dave - 107 47' (M3)
Ravi - 107 21' (Z4)
Glen - 107 20' (Jaguar)
Darren - 104 64' (RSR)
Colton - 101 70' (Z4)
Joe - 96 53' (RSR)
Jim T - 85 43' (SLS)

Fast Laps

Ronnie - 6.311 (G)
Dave - 6.338 (G)
Ravi - 6.504 (R)
Glen - 6.570 (R)
Darren - 6.732 (R)
Colton - 6.725 (B)
Joe - 7.085 (R)
Jim T - 7.847 (B)

Wow! Dave was Flyin!! After some pre race tech issues he rebounded nicely and gathered a fantastic result. Looks like Dave likes the Scaleauto's too!!!

Ravi also having some pre race tech issues Band-Aided the car so it was legal and still managed a podium finish. Nice effort Ravi. Surely the car would have been faster without the front end up in the air.

Glen is sorting that beast of a car out. We finally saw some speed from it this week.

Joe kept the car looking exactly as it did when it came out of the box at the beginning of the day. This is a Perfect day for Joe.

Good Fun guys, I Love these cars. Another note about the tire cleaner, if your car is top of the pack this week I doubt very much you should be multiple time treating your tires this week.

Here is the Deal. I did mine sparingly about 3 hours before the race. Use a small amount and work it into the tire until you fingers start to grab the tire. THAT'S IT! Again, if your tires leave the faintest mark on the glass counter in the store your tires are NO Good for the race. You will be asked to buy new tires or sit the race out. There will be no cleaning them with lighter fluid right before the race to make them legal. They pass or they don't, Got it Guys?

With all that out of the way, lets see how we all did in the 917 Race.

BRM Porsche 917

Glen - 90 38'
Ronnie - 89 36'
Ravi - 88 33'
Gabriel - 88 7'
Jim T - 85 5'
Dave - 81 18'
Bill D - 74 70'
David - 74 49'

Fast Laps

Glen - 6.351 (W)
Ronnie - 6.366 (B)
Ravi - 6.394 (B)
Gabriel - 6.396 (R)
Jim T - 6.631 (G)
Dave - 6.451 (R)
Bill D - 6.853 (W)
David - 7.126 (B)

Gleno got the WIN!!! It was a very challenging race. Lots of Crashes and a few pile ups. These cars drive exactly like the Beasts they were in full scale. Good Fun!

Thanks to everyone that made it out even if you didn't get a chance to race. It is Fun just having a lot of spectators! Makes it feel like the real deal.

See you all Friday night. Rennsport and Mods are up and we are running North Loop.
