    Apparently, you do know how to keep a fool in suspense ...

    Good to hear back from Lebanon - super production values!

    I particularly like the one where the 34 car is lapping the 17 car. Again.

      Here is the finishing order in each class.

      P-Class:
      7..maddick1943
      6..aaroldn
      5..Austin
      4..steeveew
      3..Audi1
      2..jscott111
      1..Budslots

      aaroldn's car suffered a issue on the red lane as it lost the guide wire out of the guide. During replacing I had to use a new braid to get it back together. Only lost 36+/- laps figuring an average that could have been run that heat. it was one of the fastest cars so the high lap counts in the other lanes kept it high in the standings.

      Budslots car had to go back through tech . With the new setup he was able to still pull off the win. Though not as fast as in qualifying the car was able to win by 11 lap margin overall and 13 laps in it's class.

      GT-1 Class:
      6..WCR
      5..maddick1943
      4..BrumosRSR
      3..steeveew
      2..Austin
      1..Oscar Racing

      WCR - We were left heart broken over a great run. They also suffered a guide wire breaking at the guide. The repairs were successful as the car bounced back and ran an incredible heat in the blue lap to get back all the laps it could for the overall standings and had the second best lap count in that lane of all the cars. What could have been. It was a heart breaker considering how the car was running.

      Oscar pulled off the win as it was going to be a close one until WCR hit issues. Austin then made a run for the top spot but came out 4 laps shy of the Class win. Great racing with the other cars in this class as the lower powered motors favored the track better. All finished well in the overall finishing order.

      GT-2 Class:

      4..spiritracer
      3..aaroldn
      2..Aloha
      1..Audi1

      No issues in this class with any car. The race between Audi1 & Aloha was something else. It left us in awe and pumped up. The margin was a 2 lap win but that does not reflect how close the racing was. For three lanes these cars were just neck and neck for 10 min in each lane. Same fast lap time, Same Median times, and same lap counts running side by side. Neither of us could get away from the other car. When Aloha's car got on the Red lane it did not agree with the car as well and that was where the gap opened up. EPIC

        When your car was running the Blue lane Oscar was in the red lane. Your car did lap his car in that heat 6 times.

        Great Battle! Till the wire broke

          Congratulations to Budslots Oscar and Audi1 plus all the other podiumites!

          Thanks for the report, and in particular the speedy repair! When I put that car together, the terminals didn't want to stay in the guide but I figured the addition of CA glue had it fixed. My bad, should have done a better job.

            Sad that two of the faster cars have brake downs. Proxy races are fun to run, yes ?

            aaroldn and WCR I feel for you, The way your cars run you be back to the top in no time.


            Thanks for the great photos and report.

                Austin,
                I hope you are right. Thanks for hosting and to all who helped. Congratulations to the podium finishers. 28 laps off the pace in GT2. Um Motor or to high a gear? Same motor as last year but gear ratio is not stock.

                  Sounds like you all had fun. Sorry to hear of the mechanical issues that plaqued some of your cars.
                  Congratulations to the podium finishers. Audi1 I am humbled by your performance. Hope this series can grow in size in the future as it is an interesting cross section of cars.

                    Where are you?

                    It would be a help to the readers if you told us where the track is located. Not all of us are familiar with all the tracks around, and it just mught be close by for us to visit and join in.

                      Sure thing! The track is located just north of Cincinnati, OH. 29 miles north of the Ohio River.

                        Aaroldn,

                        My track likes a motor that can launch a car out of the turns and brake hard getting into them. Your car in GT-2 was just as smooth as the top two. But it was a little top heavy in the turns and it did not like the esses at all. The launch out of the corners was a little slower than the top two cars as well. Your car is the best running Carrera we have run.

                          Thank you Budslots for the run and help of your team to get this race in before the Holiday. Congratulations to the Podium builders and better luck to the fast cars that had issues next race.

                            Thanks for the comments on the car. Maybe just to heavy for a 18K motor. As we have seen in the Forums Cup a Carrera can win when correctly engineered. The first year they ran they were bottom feeders and most decided against them. Time and effort changed that. So back to the test track upon return.
