I've got an entry! Will post pic of car tomorrow.

Missed the first race through stupidity - I was just miles away - but thanks to Austins pitstop my Camero that I'm sharing with new brother-in-law will be in the second round. Just 100 laps behind with 1,000 to go...

Me too!

It is lying in 13th place after the first round.

It is a lightly modified Corvette Stingray, having only a higher 'gauss' rated magnet and lights for effect..

The F.A.R.T. (First American Racing Team) Camaro! Owned by Scott (me) and Shane (my American brother-in-law), built by Austin's Pitstop and looking very cool on those wheels.

Looks good EE. What's under the hood?

Good luck to all on Sun.

I don't know if I should sit in front of the PC or the TV.

Er, dunno. At least not here at home as Austin sent me some spec info to work e-mail. I'll see if I saved it when I'm in tomorrow. I recall it was nothing too outragious as reliability only way to make ground from so far back.

Austin, if you're reading this feel free to post the spec.

This is the very nice looking venue for Round 2 of the Race ACross America proxyrace that takes place on Sunday. Known as Flying Cow Raceway it is owned and operated by Jim Butt (Subdude) in New Freedom, PA USA.

I wish it was me and not just my car that was going to be there and race.

That Camaro a SREAMER. It has the stock magnet up front to hold the guide in place. Two of the scalextric round sport magnets in front of the rear axle just outside of the rails. Rounded supertires on the rear, & hard nincos on the front. I saw that Jims track has long staights. Here is a 8 tooth pinion with a slotit rear axle and 26 tooth crown gear.

Oh God, I hope I removed that mess of wires ?????

Welcome to the board Austin. Hope you find it owrth a regular vist and tell the other HOSTs about it too.

Thanks for posting the spec on my car. I think Swiss is just nervous, but even if he's right then I'll just view it as a development opprtunity!

I'll bet that thing rockets down the straights!
And, I agree it looks great with those wheels I think Swiss is a bit nervous too. Let's make him a little more concerned. Shall we? Mine has a Stock magnet in it too!

I know you've all seen this.



But, what you haven't seen until now, is this....









It's more like an F1 car with a muscle car body.


Swiss =


I hope it makes it. LSI94 =

Have some serious issues. Need some advice quick! The following cars
have problems:
>
>Cliff Manley - Vette - chassis drags badly, tires undersized.
>Devon Pearson - Cuda - Magnet drags track, but still moves.
>Brent Carlson - Camaro - Magnet drags, runs but sparks badly
>Steve Berry - Camaro - chassis drags, tires undersized.
>Robert Cline - Cuda - magnet drags, guide too deep
>Roger Beale - Cuda - guide too deep
>Scott Enns - Vette - guide too deep
>
>Obviously, these guys didn't set up for Scaley track! I can trim the
guides easily, but the dragging cars will require more work. I think I could
grind a bit off the magnet of the ones dragging, but the chassis draggers
will be a bit more work. I could repair them all if necessary. What should I
do?
>
>Also, I'd like to put a picture on the SCI website. Can anyone tell me how
to do that?

Robert Cline - Cuda - , guide too deep
>Roger Beale - Cuda - guide too deep
>Scott Enns - Vette - guide too deep
This is the frist race on scalextric track, you can trim the guides no penally
I
Cliff Manley - Vette - chassis drags badly, tires undersized.
>Devon Pearson - Cuda - Magnet drags track, but still moves.
>Brent Carlson - Camaro - Magnet drags, runs but sparks badly
>Steve Berry - Camaro - chassis drags, tires undersized.
>Robert Cline - Cuda - magnet drags, guide too deep

If you can put black tape on the magnets on the cars will run on your track, run them. No penally.

If not you can only work on the car with owners OK. 2 Minute penally.
Only work on cars if Ok by all owners
You have the ok to work on Devon's car

Austin

If your car is listed above please post here or SCI.

By the way the Camaro was tested on Carrera & Ninco track. Will go like hell on that Classic track if I removed that Wiring......


You know I would of

Thanks Austin. Carrera chassis are made from a very rigid material. So, this allows you to really carve away to get a substantial weight savings. They are still very heavy though.

The principles apply to posting on more or less any board.
