Default Return to racing 2016

The first meeting will be Friday 5th Feb running the new track designed by the club members. It is slightly bigger than last years track taking in some of the pit area. The track has been design for the up and coming EP state titles at the end of May

Cheers
Bones

I should be there. Looking forward to my first go at onroad racing.
I have a touring car stock.

So to recap.

What time does practice and racing start?

What are the race time lengths. 3 or 5mins?

Cheers

Well 5 days to go till the start of a very big year for Castle Hill. Specially in the first part of the year I hope you all are ready.
First meeting back this Friday and a new and larger track.

I assume that Dean and a few of us will be going down this Wednesday to clean the track. We let you know when a time has been organised.

Hey all,
Looking at racing TC for the first time tomorrow night.
Have picked up a second hand wildfire D06 chassis and was wondering what FDR you run on the new track layout (ballpark figure)?.
Have not got my motor yet, but it will probs be an ORCA TX 21.5t, would this motor be competitive once im up to speed?
I have a set of blue ride re32 tires, do these work well at casso?
Thanks for your help.

Hi Grant

probably starting at about 3.4-3.5 for an Orca TX, Rob (ta04evah) will know the sweetspot in TC as I have only ever used them in F1, Yes they are still plenty competitive motor.
I have a spare 21.5 Orca TX one for sale if you are interested, that has been tuned and has the optional alloy timing plate for $50, just find the tall redhead, ill probably be at the track by 5ish.

also Ride Blue 32's are usually the proffered tyre there.

Either way come say hi, we are always happy to help someone new.

Beth.

Yep, start with a fdr of 3.5, and take the timing up to the last mark on the can. Do 3-5 laps of the track & check motor temp, if motor temp is low, advance the timing around 1mm past the last timing mark on the can, and repeat testing. Keep doing this until motor temp reaches 60C.

As Beth mentioned, just ask any of us there tomorrow if you need help with anything.

just on the timing adjustment DO NOT keep moving it only go to 1mm past the mark and stop there otherwise you will retard the timing I tried it and it doesn't work. If you go past the mark 1mm and its still cold then change gearing. Just to keep your motor happy

Have to disagree with you on this one Jeff, been running both my Orca's this way soon after getting them, and both are plenty fast enough, as you have seen both my F1 & TC. For the sake of comparison, I'll experiment with what you say and see if there is a difference.

Anyway, best to play it safe with a new motor & don't go past the last mark, and change the gearing as advised above.

Don't forget the track about 5m longer on the straight than normal.
Also the new track should be ready for practice about 5-5.30
A new dome and corners have been made and will be used


Cheers
Dean

Really enjoyed my first onroad racing event on Friday night.

Cheers to the casso racers for being so welcoming and helpful.
