Car Weight 17.9 GRAMS Best Run .3736 @ 38.96 mph Comments Car front end was hopping off of the line. I noticed the shunt wires are a little stiff. I replaced with some more flexible wire. The car was better but still hopped a little. I cut one coil off of your pick up springs. Car is a little under weight as it sits. I think it'll come in about right once you get some paint on it and windows. Love this body.
Car Weight 21.1 grams Best Run .3802 @ 39.87 mph Comments Driver side shunt wasn't making contact (.3836). Gotta like the slip on silicone tires. I tried silly foams for the heck of it and it ran slower. Shave some excess weight from the car to lighten it up a little. Nice body, I forgot about these stealth bodies from Tyco.
Car Weight 22.2 grams Best Run .3930 @ 34.61 mph Comments Rear tires are rubbing a little against the body. Front tires measure .380". Drop the front end .020" to .030". This will let the pick up shoes ride flatter on the rail. Great looking body.
Car Weight 21.2 grams Best Run .3987 @ 35.51 mph Comments Hopped a little (.4241). Changed shunts with more flexible wire. Seems to top out fast. I tried re gearing with no luck. Armature might be going bad. It has a little bit of a burnt smell to it.
Car Weight 20.8 grams Best Run .4148 @ 32.78 mph Comments Wizzard chassis. This car has a lot of downforce. Looks like polymer traction magnets. See if you can get some ceramic ones for this car. It'll get quicker.
Most of the guys/gals here run these voodoo drops in this class. I didn't add any to anybodies cars tonight but if you want a drop or two for the Winter NAT'S then let me know when you send your cars here. Some guys don't like this stuff. I always spray out my endbell with some R/C motor cleaner after a night of racing with this stuff.
Thank you guys for running with us. I hope you all enjoy this as much as we do.
Tvasi, A few of the cars from your track had the front hopping issue, Could just be the difference in our tracks. They are hooking up good now.
One thing to remember guys is that if you have a car running in the .3's then you have a good shot at winning. A fast car running .3500 and say a car running .3900 is only a .0400 difference. Any race could be decided by a good or bad R/T by the drivers here. That is part of the fun with these races. The fastest/quickest car doesn't always win just like in real drag racing. All drivers are competing for prizes as well so that creates a atmosphere of being a hired gun by you builders. Not to mention that we're all competitive when we pick up the controller and don't want to lose the R/T battle to our buddy.
This is shaping up to be a great race and appears that there will be a lot of close racing action. We are still taking entries so tell a buddy or a friend that you think might be interested. I think SST, Swamper and Tyler are newbies to these cars and look how they ran. Congrats guys on some great builds.
