I know 8 wellingborough club members are going - I haven't competed in the TSRF race yet but I know they are doing them tommorrow night and as I'm home alone I might pop down there if I can get a lift. However another slot event over the w/e won't go down well with my wife.
The club members who race TSRF all have a great time with good close racing that is fast enough to satidfy their BSCRA leanings.
I, and hopefully some others, would really appreciate it if those who do go could please give us a good run down on how the (1/32) TSRF cars are set up and raced.
I love the TSRF concept, but the 'pin' guide is proving problematic on tight plastic track and I am now collecting info on ways to improve things.
Thanks in advance and have a great time!
Thanks for the link, Beejay - Chris does some good stuff and I might well try that method.
VFR - yes Philippe appears to be in the throes of providing a modified round, tapered pin and it will be interesting to see how this performs when it arrives - in a month or so I think. I had been hoping to run mine on SCX plastic on Sunday past, as I really want to get my guys into a TSRF class. Unfortunately, without magnet and using the stock tyres, it was pretty tail happy on bends, rather unforgiving and anything violent always ended up with that tiny blade jamming in the slot, even on broader radius curves. I suspect that the braids might have shorted the rails anyway if that had not happened, but your tip to shorten them is probably a cure for that.
I really will try out the new pin when it's available, though can't help but feel that an orthodox swivelling guide is the real answer.
I look forward to any feedback from the event.
