Any tip will help,

thanks,
Pato,

Ever wonder why 1/5 scale on-road racers don't attend racing at events where they spray down the track with too much gunk?

Contact Frank Killiam of VS Modelsports, he can shed light upon the topic for you.

What you need on your track is a rubber groove.

When we had our group of 25+ GT cars racing on our home track, you could feel the rubber on the track surface with your hands. Grip was so good that the 1/8 scale & 200mm guys loved it. They all ran much harder than usual.

Nothing beats a real rubber groove., Nothing

Pato,

Another thing you can do for a track with low traction is drag real car tires around it. A lot of the big tracks have been doing that for years. Contact the guys of Red Cup Racing on the "Winternats" page, maybe they can help you more.

Rubber is your friend, gunk is not.

I agree with Jspeed! Best thing is to blow off the asphalt surface really well with a leaf blower and get as many racers to run a groove/line into the track during practice. As the rounds of qualifiers progress the track will continue to get better with the build up of foam/rubber in the groove/line (obviously this works even better in warmer weather). You can spray traction compound or some kind of sugar water/soda but too much can create a glaze on the track and tires. Just my opinion.

Regards,

Speyederjedi

Thanks for your words MikaR, yes thats the Alpha RC R2 body for 330mm or so based chassis, perfect fit on GTP2-E and DM1-Spec along with Inferno GT (the short one) ... very nice handling and superb rear downforce with a nice "Peugeot RCZ feel"

cya !

Tabushi,

Like Pato said...drag REAL car tires around the track to get some real rubber into the line.

Speyederjedi

he's the "Pato"n not me, lol

Pato, dragging real car rubber tires is the best thing you can do, once you spray or bury the track surface with gunky stuff, you'll ruin it.

But don't take my word on it, contact Frank Killiam and see what he says to you about it.
