Not sure about that! As far as Jlap, you can e-mail Bryan from the TSRCAR website and ask him. I am sure that he will give you an answer.......................even if it is wrong. LOL

I agree with sedanaddict, great conditions for a world champs. Very challenging to get the cars handling down right. With time and experimentation it could get very good.
I stand by my comment that traction was not that high. The tire had to skid before the traction developed. That is why the cars felt a little lazy at initial turn-in, then came on like mad a micron later. I am shure I would have been a lot happier with everything if I had been there saturday too. I made a few changes, but never got close to a predictable, hooked-up car. I only got a few laps before first round (my first), and broke the car on first lap. Oh well bad for me, not the clubs fault.

The masters results are listed separate from the regular drivers, even though in the same main.

Dennis....that explained to me why I ended up 3rd on the C-main 1/8th but actually I was not...(probably 5th)....
Just a simple question.....why? It is confusing (for me) that I think I know I am 5th overall for that main, but I can only see I am 3rd.....I cannot actually see how far behind from the actual 3rd place (John S) and 4th.....

Just wondering....no need to answer me if you think that is not necessary...

Actually the traction was very very high. what you experienced is unbalanced traction which can occur with high levels of VHT sprayed on a smooth surface. It occurs when the traction is so high that front steering is excessive giving the illusion that the rear bite is low.
To get an 1/8th scale car balanced radical changes needed to be made to the front end of the car.
personally I went to a full stiff front bar setting,6mm wider front end, 38 shore front tires narrowed 5 mm and superglued on the outside sidewalls to take the front steering off the car. My car was then balanced.

what I really needed were 40 shore fronts or 35 shore rear rubber mounted on front rims.

You should have asked me... I had 2 sets left of 40 shore fronts... Man, what a difference...

Howard,
They separated them in an attempt to make it easier for Brian to complete his year end points tally. I'm not sure if there is a way to "recombine" them but I'll find out tonight.

Partly the problem is that the master's mains aren't even posted... so i couldn't even manually assemble the result.

Default Results missing?

The problem is the Jlap results are two pages for the lower mains, so you are only seeing the results of half the people in each race. If you can recall, there were two page results posted at the track, as well. I don't see a way to switch to page two of the results. Must be an oversight of some sort.
