Welcome to the ProNoMag 2011!
Mark Knopfler is playing the music in the back ground and the teams are warming up! There is a great bunch of cars in
starting grid and they can´t wait to get their turn on the Desmo. We will start in the order of arriving.
First on the track is Betz with a nice diecast Ferrari. Sadly the transport ripped the motor out of its hotglue mount. The
team owner decision is to get this car out of the race, only valid for the concour.
#2 on the track is another diecast from Betz, this time a Maserati, featuring a heck mounted motor! After lap one the
Maserati stopped in the pits to get its Go! pin rounded, done in seconds, out on the track again. The Maserati had a
special problem in the uphill corner near puddle dude´s residence - always getting very slow there, no interest in taking
that section with more speed, but only in lane 1, lane 2 was fine for him. Like on every pin guided car, corners had to be
taken with care, otherwise the car will spin out and stop, shortening the track circuit. Nice car, handling quite good for
#3 The Mercury from Datto is next on the track, the big car forcing the watchers to take a step back
this car is sliding around the track - fun handling! The gearing is so high that the powerfull motor could spin the soft
qualifier tires down the whole front straight.
#4 Porsche by Datto Racing. A nice little overpowered car, really smooth with soft tires that don´t want grip on the flat
latex paint. A pleasure to drive.
#5 Alfa: again a HOT motor. Handling good, smooth, tires like on the Porsche. After cleaning them repeatedly, the grip was
good for a half lap.
#6 Easy Ed #00: The quad motored beast
of 4 motors revving up! very preditable and constant. not one deslot even when pushed really hard.
#7 Easy Ed #16: the Doppelgaenger: fast, but the rear end is a little loose. smooth as silk. great sound, too! are those
ballbearings on the rear??? like on the #00 the tires don´t seem to like my track surface. The chassis is working really,
really great, one of the best i´ve driven.
#8 Easy Ed #11 a nice single motor car with aluminium chassis: smooth. some kind of tuning monster motor inside this one? i
can´t identify it, my would be a carrera motor, but for sure not stock
#9 Broman62 Ford Falcon 00 A nice car, a little bumpy in right hand turns, pin guide, but handling good.
#10 Broman62 Willis #7 first a little pit work - flattening the rear body mounting screw, the screw stopped the car without
tirecontact on the section near the puddle dude race garage, just where the steepest part of the track is located. guide
pin a little rounded so it doesn´t block in the slot. handling quite good, high CoG. Looking great going round the track.
#11 Broman62 Chevy#57 handling is good, a little on the heavy, could use better breakes. smooth, taking corners with
enthusiasm. it needs a little time to get used to this car, but then it driving quite good. the only real limit is the pin
guide. If the track radii varis from 1 1/2" to 30", than a SlideGuide really helps the handling. If you overdrive the car
with a slideguide, you can recover. With a pin guide, you´re shortening the track and the car will not move one inch.
#12 Broman62 Ford#99 left hand turns are great, but why does this f...ing track have right hand turns? What is this good
for LOL j/k great looking car! likes left turns way more than right turns. totally awesome paint job! nice straight line
speed, too. you can dive deep into left hand turns with this beauty.
#13 Betz Peugeot 908HDI a pullback conversion with monster motor. a real speed monsters, that could spin the tires down the
whole straight. handling quite good, brakes okay. But with all this speed you have to be really carefull entering a turn.
smooth and heavy. more sideways than straight forward, with the tires always in the search of grip.
#14 pfuetze mustang #43 the small width of the stang results in a tendency to barrel roll. weaker motor than most of the
other cars,less weight. great to drive.
#15 pfuetze MCA #26 the ortmann tires are working quite good - for one or two laps. handling good. feels always loose.
#16 Lloyd Lancia #1 Ranch-Design SideWinderChassis with a very nice Heller kit body. If this car got no tuning, i´m more
than afraid what a tuned car from Lloyd could do on the track! There´s a little more pontential in the chassis, it´s still
hopping in the slot turns. The gearing is just right, the motor works great and the braking is good.
Thanks for letting me race your great cars, gents! It´s been a pleasure.
And here´s what you are all waiting for:
the lap times in detail:
And the winner is:
Congrats Lloyd and to all others!
It´s was a great race!
p.s. I´ll start a thread for the concour soon, after the concour, the price picking will start!
