Today's lesson has been;-
"The Importance Of Keeping Your Car's Tyres Clean"
I may not need new magnets after all.
I noticed that both new SCX cars were starting to slide a bit and happened to notice the rear tyres had a "film" on already, so I wiped them off. While doing it, I thought "Maybe I should do the others again, while I'm at it".
Transformation time! The lap times I posted yesterday aren't worth Jack anymore. The one thing I didn't
do to the cars during those tests was clean the tyres. D'OH! Even the "slidy" Laguna on it's grooved rubber tyres is a good second quicker after wiping the tyres with Electrical Contact Cleaner. (I'm still experimenting with different cleaners for different uses.) Next time, I might try Meths, unless anyone can give me a reason not to.
I need to get in the habit of cleaning all the tyres before every session, I think. The trouble is that although I've cleaned the "eBay bargain" track, I don't have a clue what's been run on (or done to) it.
