Looks good Alan, what did you use for the center barrier?
Shipped our cars off to the race today.
Son helped with testing, wants to know why mine are a little faster than his. Answer: Magic looney tunes dust??, and I did 90% of the work. His car out qualified mine last time despite mine having a tenth on his here.. Go figure.
Barrier was made out of strips of Evergreen styrene. I routed a slot in the center of the track 1/8" wide and 1/8" deep. On the bottom of the barrier is also a 1/8" square piece of styrene that fits down in the slot in the track which holds the barrier in place. Sign itself was done on PC with Corel Draw.
GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE RACERS........ Hope things go smooth with event. Looking forward to the racing....... and finding out if X3 will stay on track with no t/mags (wheelie bar seemed the ticket before rule change).
Alan, if there are no objections......... perhaps you could point out which cars are using t/mags prior to racing. With that info any differences in performance should be easy to spot as races progress.
Can hardly wait for things to get going......... Peter
Yes nice coverage, I want to know how you made up that ET grid, I would like to incorporate that into my events. I had no clue about the stock X1 class and was surprised the cars did that good. My son listened well and all those cars were prepped almost identically. He was my whole pit crew when I raced the Pro Mod in the past and he has worked on cars for years. The X3 type cars were a different story, lots of testing there. We prepped about 5 each out of the large group of X type cars I have. Then picked the best 2 of our cars to send. The Yellow 67 is an old War horse that was always a little terror. The armature in that probably has near 200 passes on it since it was drag racing way back in the 70s. Never ran much roundy round even then.
