ANy progression. You have a buyer here!

Pretty keen to do Mark Webber's Minardi from 2002 if I can find the decals.

Ok a few questions.
VII
carpet ok traction

The questions
1 side springs whats the affect of softer to harder?
2 rear axel composite vs steel?
3 speed control. I have a very old speed passion works well but time for a new one.
4 best gearing to shoot for?
5 best motor? Running thunder power now.

Btw rubber tcs tires with 21.5 open gearing. Pretty tight track. But big.

softer side springs will allow the car to roll more and give more steering. harder springs will increase stability and center quicker.

The axle makes very little difference on the v2 but providing grip is high enough the lighter one can marginally increase acceleration.

many of the old speedos are just fine, with no timing advance allowed its all about the smoothness of the power delivery,

I like the Thunder power and Reedy motors better than the novak and trinity ones. For the Tp use the red rotor, 37deg timing and and start with a 2.9 and adjust a tooth or 2 for the track.

Ironically that rule allows the original Corally wheels, just not the later Pro10 wheels.

Of course, this whole discussion isn't new. My take is that F1 rules don't state realism, but an open wheeled racing class. The whole scale looks argument is just a load of badly used diff grease . I do agree it would have been nice if there was a single standard all cars were made to.

The "It's a 10L with an F1 body" is a straw man, to be honest. No-one seriously considers that to be an F1, not even the people who run Corallies. I agree on the aesthetics of the 1:12 front end, when looking at a static car. On the track? Hard to tell if you're moving at a decent pace.

If that is legal, the Corally Mk1 suspension is also legal (the one before they went to the Pro10 setup).

Hi
What gear ratio would you recommend for current Timezone II with a 21.5?
Thx.

The original Corally wheels use a plastic clip to hold the wheel on...not a nut

When I was still running the F1 race out here my rules did state it was a class based on scale realism.

Most would agree with you here...however there are always those few who would do anything for an edge. If you don't specifically dis-allow them then as soon as someone starts racing one and doing well...that will be the car to have and more will jump ship on the scale aspect to be able to compete. That is exactly what happened to F1 racing in the F102/F103 era.

My rules allowed the original Corally suspension as it made a decent enough attempt to be somewhat scale. However we did not allow the Pro10 wheels so if you wanted to use that car you needed to find a way to make the F1 wheels fit. I even ran one like that myself for a little while. Not for long though because battery changes were a real pain in the butt in a 45min race

I feel the steel axle tends to lock the rear end down.

I would love to tell you that it is on my list of stuff to do, but I dont see there being a demand for this livery.
The Minardis I was looking at doing are the late 80's early 90's cars, maybe some Dallaras and Larousses as well

With the TP I ran a 2.9 (93/32) on the tz2 track same as H30, although I think a 2.8 would have dropped off less.

Bring the car out to the Hanger on 29th there should be several of us out for the race.

Pffft. That's like saying the Red Bull diffuser was outside of regulations.

I would think a rule along the same lines as the suspension mounting point rules would cover that: requiring the chassis plate to fit underneath the body (although some allowances in the rear may be necessary).



My rules allowed the original Corally suspension as it made a decent enough attempt to be somewhat scale. However we did not allow the Pro10 wheels so if you wanted to use that car you needed to find a way to make the F1 wheels fit. I even ran one like that myself for a little while.

Beautiful job!!! Now this is what F1 rc is all about! Looks like the real car! No pan car wheels, "blob" aero bodies, or 1/12 suspension. This is gorgeous!!
