concours de elegance: the best looking car will be voted by the host and get a special price.

wide open rules again, ladies and gentleman, so build your fastest, smoothest 1/43rd car for this race. just tune your stock SCX car a little and maybe blow the doors off all others, built something that was not seen before, it´s up to you.
Who will have the fastest car?

The BARC Team arrived some time ago already, the first on the track for the race!
Nice lineup, forward to see how they will run!

The PRT decided on the entries for this race, as it became clear that no new car will be ready for the race. The 962 is quite an old car, which already ran in some races. But it is still very, very fast. Will have to check gear clearance, it seems to have a little too much side-to-side-play in the rear axles.
The Mini JCW should have run last year, but wasn´t finished in time. So it will run this year. Looking forward to see the lights around the track.
And last but not least the remotored Exige which already ran in a ProNoMag. New tires and new motor, a mild one this time. Maybe will change to clear glass windows before the race if i can finish it.

So, whose car will be next on the track?

But i take one if i get the request as it maybe look interesting ...

Thanks very much, I will look out for them. I'm still unsure about the components needed for a 1/43 build and any information is very useful.

Qualifying session!

This post will be about all the cars that failed the qualifying due to the rules and the reasons described above. All other cars are in the race!

pnm18_152.jpg

pnm18_153.jpg

Dan - Ferrari #3

12V 45ohm

10.9s

wobbly guide stem, wobbly front tires, unsealed

not a bad car to drive, but jumpy and rattling a little down the straights. very nice to look at.

back end seems to work great, all the problems seem to caused by the front end.

pnm18_150.jpg

pnm18_151.jpg

Lloyd - Imp #19

12V 45ohm

13.6s

DNQ

a nice littel car, but with a big problem. in left hand corners, the guide blocks and doesn´t return to the middle position. this means going around every left hand corner very, very slow and this was the desaster for the lap times.
If the guide moves free in every directin, this car could be in the middle of the field.

tires are offering medium grip only, not good grip.

pnm18_154.jpg

pnm18_155.jpg

Aki - Audi #5

11V 45 ohm

10.3s

motor came loose in training lap #7

glued back in, opened body screws and motorpod screws. realised that the screws will drag on the track when opened, i put them back in. back end stays jumpy in this setting, but the car will go around the track. even bigger rear tires or filing down the screw heads could be a solution. with a different setup this car could be seriously fast!

it runs really smooth on the straights, even in the corners, but under load it gets jumpy.

pnm18_162.jpg

pnm18_163.jpg

Boro - yellow Exige

10V 45ohm

10.7s

DNF

car runs nice and smooth, but the crown came loose in lap 2 of the training. Push it back, when going very carefull and slow, i can get 2 laps until the crown is not in contact with the pinion. What pushing the little car with all the power of the bigf FF050 motor, the crown is loose in half a lap.

sorry, DNF

what a great looking car, i look forward to race it ...

pnm18_160.jpg

pnm18_161.jpg

Holger - green Exige

10V 45ohm

11.1s

DNF

a loose pinion did not allow faster times. it spun out of the corners, it spun on the straight, you could the motor revving up with the car not getting any faster.

sad to see, as this car handled good as far as i could see, but as the speed were quite slow due to the pinion, who knows.

but it runs smooth, very smooth.

Holger - orange Exige

14V 90ohm

12.1s

left front up in the air

way too stiff guide cables, make the car hopeless in the slightest bends. did not run in the Essess, but blocked in the slot every seconds.

run smooth on the straights, would be a nice runner with softer cables.

but with these cables it´s no fun at all.

pnm18_156.jpg

pnm18_157.jpg

DC-Käfer

9V 45ohm

9,7s

smooth running car, very weak brakes, a little too much weight maybe. on-off-lights.

likes to run deep into the corners.

pnm18_158.jpg

pnm18_159.jpg

Daniel - Porsche #11

10V 45 ohm

10.2s

great running car, good balance

but man this is loud!

pnm18_164.jpg

pnm18_165.jpg

Tilo - Porsche #6

9,5V 45 ohm

10.7s

long gearing

you can actually feel the heavy engine block pushing out the car in the corners. low CoG, but limited cornering speed.

pnm18_166.jpg

pnm18_167.jpg

Peter - Porsche 962

15V 90V

9.3s

the Porsche is still a very fast and very smooth car. This years changes to the side to side play in the rear axle and also in the front axle made it even smoother. At this speed you have to concentrate hard, but you will be awarded with really fast lap times.

I wanted to have the Mini and the Lotus in the race, so the Porsche stayed in the garage for the race.
