  • Car Repairs at LRP

    BrumosRSR

    I was able to raise the rear of the car off the tires. That helped but the car was still tight. I then found the rims were pressed against the pod to tightly. Loosened the one rim opposite the gear and the car is now free to run

    I opened up the car and all seemed fine. I re pressed the wires into the guide. I re adjusted the wire connecting to the motor. The motor was loose in the pod so I hot glued it in place. Rechecked the rims, gears and body. The car seems to be getting more power now! The headlights and tail lights are brighter.

    Your car screw has been reinstalled. I put tap over each screw hole to stop it from coming out again.

          Are you saying that Dale had a screw loose?

              The Corvette team, no fines



              Crap rereading the rules,
              Magnetic downforce reduction: 1 point for every gram of downforce which must be removed to meet the 35 gram maximum. This will involve placement of shim steel under the motor to redirect the magnetic field, or installation of a replacement motor, if desired by owner, at owner's expense.

              LOL

              There will be fines for this rule so standings will change.

                    .

                    I re-read the rules to see where I missed this and feel a little egg on my face. It is listed in the Repair and Adjustment section???? I feel this big of a rule should be up in the general rules for all cars. The min weight is.

                    I never race on plastic even though my home track is plastic. 99% of the racing I do is on wood so I never check the motor mag. I am in the middle of running the race and getting to the p class tomorrow. I will adjust my car before my cars heats. How do you get the magnet Marshall to just read the tare Austin? I have a magnet Marshall but have not used it in three years since I left mag racing.

                    We also never had a formal tech inspection but if the penalty has to be for the last race I accept

                          Agree 100% with that. The "can't do's" should be in the rules section and the penalties associated with them should be in the penalty section; even if there is some redundancy associated with that.

                          Since you've already got the 14 point deduction, why not leave your car the way that it was; particularly since it's racing very well now? The way that I read it, it's not 14 points per race; it's a one-time series penalty.

                            The rules don't say its a one time reduction, its a penalty if your over at tech and then must be fixed before racing.

                              Hi Scott. Right. I guess we'll have to wait for an interpretation from Austin on this.

                              The Rules look, to me, like there's been a fair amount of "cutting and pasting" over the years; making it a little hard, perhaps, to interpret them accurately.

                              The way it's written now, the paragraph above the magnetic downforce rule says that any car that needs adjustment in order to pass tech looses 5 points from the first race. Then is says that any car that needs adjustment during tech...........etc. Then it talks about the reduction in magnetic downforce to the 35g maximum.

                              I agree that the spirit of the rules was probably that all cars should be in a condition to pass tech prior to being raced. But, the magnetic downforce issue wasn't really highlighted (at least I don't think it was), until after the first race was run.

                              So, I agree with you, the car needs to be brought into tech specs prior to it's being raced again; so Bud is doing the right thing by getting his car below 35gms on the Magnet Marshall before running the P-Class cars.

                              This is a really a shame and it's too bad that it had to rear it's head at this particular Round. Good luck to Budslots for the rest of the series; I hope his car continues to run well.
