The runs for the fastest groups has finished for the day. In the afternoon is the slower groups turn, so I guess this will not change. Tomorrow is the last day for qualification.

Same problems as in Cordoba:

Quote:
Chris Tosolini, who held the overnight TQ honours, failed to finish his run as his engine went off tune during the run. His Sirio team mate Jilles Groskamp suffered the same problem. Sirio believe that the procedure used for the hand out fuel may be the causing contamination. Both drivers said their Kyosho cars were working really well.

RC_Alan - The reason for the diff was the traction level. At the track here, they do not clean the surface (blow it off) nor spray the track with any sort of compound (sugar, vht, etc). The traction is very low and really the only time you have a problem with traction rolling is more from the car catching a bump wrong and the end of the main straight. Honestly, if it would not have rained the other night I was going to try the spool but the grip dropped too much and it was just not possible.

Today was an interesting day. A few had a good day yesterday and others got it together a little today. Ralphy and Paul got good, solid runs in that may keep them in the Semi's for Saturday. Barry was extremely quick but had a crash into the pits in the first round and in the second he flamed out at the start which cost him as again he had a very fast car. Marc was able to finish the first round with a decient run dispite a pit miscommunication that cost him some time. In the second, I think some loose screws meant a stripped 2nd gear.

For myself, a very uneventful day. The engine ran great with the gearing and manifold changes but my car would barely turn around on a football field!! I'll elaborate on the problems more another day as this WC has definatly been just super frustrating. Tommorow, hopefully will be better.

As for the talk of the fuel, there is definatly a difference in the fuel that we purchased in the hobby shop to practice with vs. the fuel for the event. Averyone has had fits trying to re-tune their engines in the short 3 minute warm-up. Really, it's not even 3 minutes as they call everyone into the pits with 1 minute to 45 seconds left in warm-up. Only 2 minutes to break in tires and tune the engine with fuel that may or may not be close to what you had last time is tough for any race let alone something like a WC. I'm very happy to see that IFMAR will give the extra 2 minutes tommorow as now we will have the time to adjust and you won't have to drive like a maniac in warm-up to try and break tires in time for the start.

Tommorow morning may be the rocket round as the track will be very cool and still in the shadows for the top heats. With the extra time added to the program for tommorow though, we may run late enough in the evening to hit a cooling track to have another chance for some great times. Especially if there is some cloud cover. I am sure the order of things will change a lot tommorow so it should be a great day for racing (unless there's rain tonight...lol).

Until tommorow!

Most European drivers use a front diff, and that's what I see Barry using in his G4RS... Is that because that's the setup the European drivers are using and Barry is using there setup as a base or was no front oneway/spool available? I notice you are using a front diff as well in your NT1. I stand corrected... I notice everyone using a front diff from the pics posted on RedRC. Is it preference or is that what the track calls for??? Maybe it's dumb question and it's late in the game as qualification has already begun, but setup's are key and a few .10's of a sec can be the difference between winning and losing... Thanks again and good luck to you and to Team USA!!!

RC_Alan
I ran my G4RS on a smooth 1/8th track here in joilet Illinois....my diff setup is easier and faster the spool. When using spool, you have to deal with throttle and brake control ALOT........that means, you have to change the way you drive....hard coming in the corner, then hard braking, and hard punching throttle...and do that 8-9 times per lap...times 45 minutes.

If not handling it correctly, your lap time is not going to be fast...I rather have a stable, easy to control and predictable car and made good lap times over and over then a 1 super fast lap and 8 horrible laps car...

Ask Jonnysocko...he ended up A-Main 4th place @ GLC using G4RS with front diff........may be that is a Team Magic G4RS thing (front diff)..might not apply to RRR MTX4R or NT1...
