Oh Charlie, young Charlie you should know that WD-40 is crap. I only use liquid wrench...

And by the way i am the champion of tweeking cars to make them slower... i just have to buy a car and it starts to slow down.

My car is so slow... oops fast that if it had rear lights that's all you would see.

Nice work on the new Cannon Car Tim! To be honest I am suprised it didn't get "Scheissered".

Well all packed with last minute car changes, and possibly a last minute change at the track...

Yes Timmy, late in 2 of the builds screwed up and will be doing slight tweeks to 2 of his Woodstock cars.

On my way shortly.

Tim

Really enjoyed the racing. Steve and Bob did also and of coarse would have more if they had better cars to drive... need to work on that.

It's too bad that we had such a late start as i had promised Steve and his wife to have him back home by 6 and with the possible storm on the way Bob too needed to be on the way by 5. So instead of leaving half way threw the south loop we left early.

Really looking forward to the next one. Ravi your car is a bullet and your driving to control it is amazing. Good work.

Thank you for the compliments Tim, It is a very easy car to drive. I am sure you will be faster than me in the same car you could try it out the the next time we meet.

Don't sell yourself short Ravi, from what i saw you were doing a great job of driving. We all knew you had it in you and it goes to show what practice and loads of patience can get you. Now you just have to work on your control when you are door to door .

As a point of reference for anyone interested, my car was running the new Fox IV motor with 9/44 gearing. Definitely not as fast as Ravi, but it did give Charlie a good run. Ron mentioned that he had some coming so my advice is get your order in there... The chassis was a Scholer but was very similar to the ScaleAuto.

I'm changing the GT40 over to a Honda NSX because as we all know that Timmy needs the Honda power.

Help... since i had to leave early, i need results!!!! Looking forward to the next race and have 2 cars on my bench in progress. One body that i stripped and will start to paint on Tuesday. Bob has put some time aside to dig through the snow banks and get out his stuff from storage. Steve has looked at his driving suit and is starting his 'Arnold' finger exercises...

Lets keep the momentum going for next months race.

Default January 15, 2015 1/24th Scale Enduro

Hi Guys,

Very sorry for the delay. It's Saturday morning at the hobby shop.

here we go......we ran North Loop then South Loop.

Ravi - 368 + 363 = 731
Charles - 361 + 355 = 716
John Bokor - 346 + 355 = 701
Dave - 349 + 351 = 700
Terry - 350 + 346 = 696
Anthony - 345 + 347 = 692
Brian - 340 + 326 = 666
Shean - 311 + 314 = 625
Big Dan - 307 + 311 = 618
Tim - 355 + 0 = 355
Bob - 296 + 0 = 296
Steve - 293 + 0 = 293
Dan - 286 + 0 = 286
Glen - 271 + 0 = 271

Fast Lap of Race - Ravi - 6.010 (Red) - Do Slot GTC/Scaleauto Porsche 997

What a great race! A HUGE Turnout, even if some couldn't stick around for the second half of the race. Well done guys.

Ravi got the WIN in convincing fashion! A excellent car and a more than competent driver. Well done Ravi.

Charles manages to race 1 car for the entire race! This is a feat in itself. Nice run Charlie.

Johnny B rounded out the podium with an excellent drive, nobody even saw him coming! Nice to see you moving up the leader board here John.

Anthony decided to do the Iron Man this race and he put it in 6th place. A fine effort for his first fully driven enduro.

The third teammate from Team Ravi Racing was out! Shean did a fine job of running in his first slot car race ever here!!! Both runs were in the 300's! Well Done Shean!

Brian and Big Dan were back out to run the big cars. It was great to have you both back in the house.

We did have a few first time competitors......Steve and Bob. Unfortunately the program ran long and they could not stay for the second half of the race. Come on back anytime guys, old time slot racers are always welcome here.

That pretty sums it up. Thanks to everyone that came out. You guys make this one of the best 1/24th scale racing programs in Ontario.

There really isn't a rule set for the "Outlaw" class Scaleautos......

Minimum ride height and no visible tires when looking from the top of the car......thats about it.

It has to be proper scale appearing as well. i.e. no tiny tires.......

We keep it easy.......
