Had the day off, so went out to the track with both the Corally F1 and the 3Racing F109, to try and see if I could find which one performed better. Both cars have almost the same electrics (servo is different, Corally: Sanwa HR141, F109: Savox 1251. Due to the servos, the Corally is on PPM, the F109 on HRS, Futaba 2.4 Ghz), both are on foam tyres. They ended up leapfrogging each other in setting the fastest laptimes, so there was no clearcut winner.

I did find that the F109 was a bit easier to drive; it seemed more stable (which with the longer wheelbase makes sense), and more forgiving of hitting the kerbstones. That said, the Pro10 tyres used (Calandra WorldGT spec) seemed more consistent, compared to the GP tyres on the F109. Both cars were close enough that I could just swap cars, switch profiles on the transmitter, and drive on with the next car without having to adapt much.

I take the results from RCScoringPro and convert them to .csv. (paste into excel and manually delete all of blanks, clean it up, etc.)

then I use a package from highcharts.com (free for non-commercial use) and it has a javascript (that can be pasted right into your HTML) that renders those interactive graphs from the .csv data (on our webserver).

It would be nice to get the SQL export from our tracks, but I'm happy to get any electronic data... and it doesn't really take that long to clean up.

thanks for asking. the graphs are interative too... you can click people's names to exclude their data or drag to zoom in on certain sections.

hey guys I posted these pics in the 3racing thread also, but thought more of you may want to see my FGX. The yellow turned out just a bit lighter than I was hoping for but isnt bad, I used tamiya "yellow" going the quick route instead of the typical airbrushing I do.
this is the Jordan EJ10 decal set from F1 Paint Lab. Id like to say these decals are of great quality and thin enough that you are able to wrap them around any shape with ease.

now I just need to use an actual camera instead of a phone.

Very nice job, and thank you for the compliments . I'm glad that you had a good experience with our products, it is one of the reasons I got into doing this.

Well my Novak Balistic motor decided it no longer wants to work...I think the sensor board has gone out on it. So...which motor should I get next?

Mine is playing up too, no longer recognises a sensor lead and runs in sensorless mode.
Stutters badly under load on most corners.
Now running a 4yr old Nosram 17.5 which is slower

Reedy sonic. Good torque good rpm very smooth. Felt better in my f1 than the Novak did. I also have a revtech in a usgt car that works really well but I haven't tried it in a f1 chassis.

Watching F1 European GP, Hamilton made a 2.9 second pit stop!! take that NASCAR with steel lug nuts, so prehistoric!! also UF1 pit stops at 20 seconds. Oh Vettle made a 3.7 second pit stop. soo slow; )

If i made a real rc pit stop and swapped tires and batteries in my FGX F1? 30 seconds for each tire? = 2 minutes + replace battery, 3 minutes = 5 minute pit stop!!! LMAO. maybe if I had a pit crew??

Obviously I'm bored to death watching racing on tv.
