    Because of the covid situation i had decided to run 4 rounds in Athens but my plans failed:
    -The most interesting would be a brand new Policar track but the owner had to deal with serious(noncovid)health issues of one of his family members so i would not dare asking to run he race we had agreed
    -i could race solo a 3rd Ninco track, but racing 2 races solo proved quite exausting ,and one more Ninco track would not provide additonal information.

    Some comments:
    -the J _R motor seems more consistent than the BWA and my feeling is that the cars are more pleasent to drive with 1,5-2k of additional rpm.Exceptions
    --- (A)car #1 11280 rpm it is either a faulty motor or my tachometers error but especially on Creative Hobby track if felt slow on the long straight and
    --- (B) car #2 16762 rpm lucky you Kevan
    -it looks that gear ratio 9/24 is the way to go.The cars affected most by wrong ratio are 28,87,658,11,86,i have the feeling they could be fighting for podiums

    Below is a table showing scores after 2 races and car data.Please help me to fill the blanks.There could also be some mistake in pinion count ,please correct me,it wasnt easy counting teeth without removing which did not.Car 98 is missing pinion and crown data because it has a Policar gearbox and it is impossible to count without removal.

    Time to start packing.
    P.S. there a couple of cars we would like to keep permanently here but not his time: 21 and 87 for me and 5 for Nick

    Hi Alexis
    Thank you for the summary!
    My Porsche #12 has YellowDog rears, and might be Ninco rubber up front. The guide is 3DP of my own design off Thingiverse.
    Come Race at The Trace!

      Thank you for the update
      3DP Chassis
      Sloting Plus Guide
      Ninco Front
      Paul Gage Rear
      Interesting observation on the Motors and that the BWA was not a better choice
      Would love to see how a set of your tires set up.
      I realized that speed was not of the key here but smoothness
      We appreciate your efforts and are sad that your international event was thwarted by this pandemic
      Be safe

        Thanks Alexis, cars #2, #15 & #658 are in class F not M

        The four IoM entries motors came together, it's interesting they range so much in rpm, when it was new the motor in the #2 Corvette was running at did a LOT of testing/running in and wore a set of tyres out, mainly due to it being so enjoyable to drive.

        As far as additional info on the cars:

        #2 is a Revell/Monogram body, has a Slotingplus guide and Pendle tyres.

        #87 has a Slotingplus guide and Pendle tyres.

        #658 is a Scalextric, has a Slotingplus guide and Pendle tyres.

        #28 maybe a SlotIt guide but has Pendle tyres.

                  Sorry to see this one cut short, but i appreciate the tech sheet.

                  I'm curious on motor choices and where to buy. I have a couple of cars purchased specifically for this proxy, but haven't found the chassis and available motor combo that would work. I'm not a scratch builder...

                  For those of you in the US, where are you getting your motors/pods to go with them. Or are you making room for them with a little interior trimming?

                    Cory, I’m n9t sure what you’re building but if it’s a slimline BWA or M/T, Scaleauto makes a hard inline pod. If you’re running the H&R, BWA or M/T S can, a Slot It in-line should do the trick

                    Hi Alexis, Thank You for getting this proxy underway, lets hope 2021 will be easier for all.
                    I think the blue Jack Rabbit motor is a great idea, easy to get and very consistent.
                    Cars 1 and 21 are both running MRRC tires all round.
                    Car 1 has a Slot-it guide and 21 has a Scale Auto guide.
                    All the best for everyone in 2021.
