    [quote=nhdungeonracer;901292]As for the guys saying the track record is held by Quick Slicks, I think they're referring to the new fastest lap record, in which a car ran in the 6.6 second range on the Cloverleaf track. It was the Slot Car Corner NSR Mosler if my memory serves me correctly.[/quote]
    :) I owe it all to Rob. He helped me with the tires and gave a couple of driving lessons too. He even helped me with night driving.

    Nick you are correct about last year and super tires. This year two teams also ran super tires, and four teams ran Quick Slicks. The new tack recorder was set by a car running [B]Quick Slicks[/B] and the top 4 teams were running [B]Quick Slicks[/B]. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask we are always willing to help out.

    I knew I shouldn't have given them to all teams before the race. We didn't have enough left for us!!

    Last night, I wanted to see how the different teams improved between last year's race and this year's race. 5 teams were back, with almost the same drivers (some changes were made). Of course, it's always difficult to compare two different years because there are so many factors involved in a race like this. But overall, every team improved this year, except Slot Car Corner (we had an almost flawless race last year, we knew it would be difficult to repeat).

    As you can see, every team improved on last year's total, except SCC. And the difference is really important. When you go over 2% in improvement in slot car racing, that's a lot (that means between 0.15 and 0.20 seconds each lap).

    Why did every team improve so much? Very difficult to say, too many factors involved. But I think this table is very telling.

    Also, since apparently the goal here is full disclosure, the track record at the Michigan 24 is held by a car running with Quick Slicks tires. Often, that's an important statistic when looking at tire performance.


    *Edit* Also worth noting when comparing tire performance, Quick Slicks hadn't been created yet, so were absent for the 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 races. 'Comparison' for those four years isn't actually possible.

    Nick & Sandy, I'm not Dickie but your questions are easy to answer for anyone who participated in the five Michigan 24 races (I did).

    Super Tires were used on the winning car for the first 4 races (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014).
    The world record is still 271.71 miles, established in 2014 by the Slot Car Corner team.

    Hi Dickie Pearson, (aka nhdungeonracer), co-owner of Slot Car Corner. I, Nick, owner of Super Tires, would like to ask you some questions to [B]set the records straight[/B], (No Politics). The reason that I am asking you in particular is that you & your wife are the only two people that I've met in person who ever participated in the Michigan 24 Hour Endurance Races. Dickie, you & your wife are class A people in my book & I am sure that there are others at the track.

    I have a lot of questions, but I would be happy to see just the two answered below:

    Dickie, out of the five Michigan 24 Races, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015, which ones of the races had Super Tires on the rear of the winning car?

    Dickie, does Super Tires currently hold the race record still with 271.71 miles, that was established in 2014 by Slot Car Corner, a race team that you were a part of?

    If you can answer these 2 questions, here on SCI, in good grace, I will go away peacefully.

    Thanks,

    Nick & Sandy
    Team Super Tires :USA: :canada:

    First off I would like to say sorry for the delay I had a draft saved and it got lost somehow. I would like everyone to know how much I appreciate all the kind words about our race. I can not believe that we are on our 5th year already.
    I would like to congratulate the Hazard boys (or what ever you are calling yourselves today). I know that you guys were still working on your car at 11:00 on Friday night and still not satisfied with the results. Then Saturday morning you found out that Dickie would not be able to race. You guys race a very clean race and were strong through out the whole race, if it had not been for the braid issue you probably would of broken the world record. I would also like to thank you for using our Quick Slicks tires.
    This year was the closest racing I think we have ever seen. If one team were to of had any more problems it would have changed the whole out come. We did see a new track record and also saw more cars running below the 7.0 time on a regular basis. Every time I think we will not be able to go any faster it seems like we do.
    I would like to thank everyone that helped out during the race, without your help I would never be able to make this race happen. I am sure I will forget someone but I will try to get everyone. Big thanks to Craig s wife and daughter for all the help with the food and the clean up. Thanks to Dave W for helping with the timing and all the other odds and ends that you do. Thanks to Dave Z for taking time out of your weekend to help out with the race. I know that everyone did there part just to keep thing moving along and cleaning up after themselves.
    I would like to thank Rob for setting the charity part of the race I know we have a few things that we will address for next years race so that things move more smoothly, we are always looking to improve our race and the was one of the best additions.
    Big thanks to all the teams that keep coming back and entering our race year after year, it really means a lot to me that you think enough of our race to enter it year after year.
    Mike
