Took the car to the Regina leg of the W.C.I.C.S (Western Canadian Indoor Championship Series). Lot of old school pan-car lovers up there. One of the biggest temporary carpet tracks we get to run on. Was, I believe, 48x100.
I was kind of looking forward to trying the car to see how a 200mm version would feel. I'm from the old-school of pan car lovers the wide 235mm cars. We used to run those all the time in our area. If you had a 1/12th car, you had a matching 1/10th pan in the pits. I enjoy pan, and am the last NORRCA 1/10th pan National Champion before NORRCA went away in 2003. *SNIFF* So I have a very
soft spot in my heart for pan cars. As did pretty much everybody that saw the BMI car this weekend.
Made a few small changes to the car (different front tires) and mounted a Corvette body on it, that sums up the work I did... ...lol... As a demo car, to show some of the heads of the series and people interested, it worked perfectly. I think the pack I tossed in the car got 8-9 charges over the weekend and I'm guessing maybe 15-20 different people drove it.
As massive as the track was for us, I still had to drop the pinion from a 37 (pinion Jason had on the car) to a 34 and it was close enough to have a good time with.
Everybody that drove it or saw it drive was surprised that all I did from Jasons Asphalt setup was swap the front tires. Would have been fun to REALLY work the car over and try and dial it in. I suspect very similar to mod touring times
I should have pop'd a transponder in the car. Would have been neat to see where it would have stacked up. Was 10.5 Brushless with a 4 cell pack. I've got some VERY ghetto videos of the car that I took with my little pocket camera that I might pop on youtube.
Anyway, we enjoyed it. Showed it to a lot of folks. Lotta folks drove it, and we all had a good time with it.
Now the moral dilemna... to send it back or not....
