    Hi everyone. I’m really looking forward to running these cars on my track. The box has arrived. I will inspect all the cars and take some pictures. I’m hoping to do qualifying on Thursday or Saturday with the race happening Sunday morning. Stay tuned.

      Hi everyone. I have completed qualifying. Here is the format I used: ANRP Oval configuration (lap times are usually in the 2.8-4 second range).

      I did the following for each car: 5 laps to dial in my controller, tire clean, and 1 minute to set best lap. All qualifying was done in the yellow (middle) lane in counter clockwise direction.

      And on to the Qualifying Results.......

      Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_7480.jpg Views:	35 Size:	2.94 MB ID:	93901Congrats to Aloha, REL13, and 101corvettes for secure the top three qualifying positions. This was a very close qualifying session and there were many starting positions separated by hundredths. Boy these cars are fun to drive. They all performed comfortably on the oval. Times varied based on a number of factors: motor, gearing, and tires (shocking I know). There seemed to be more wheel hop/chatter from the cars with the stock front wheels/tires, especially on those cars without any truing. I did write down some notes and am happy to share if needed but don't have time to write it all out tonight. Here are the full results:

              Hello Car Builders/Owners! The race has been completed in just under 3 hours. It was very close with the top two separated by just one lap. We also had 8 different ties where cars finished on the same lap and sometimes within a car length or two of each other. Here is the race info and results:


              Blue Lane - Bob Bianchi (rbianchi and SCC) - Difalco Controller
              Yellow Lane - Wes Cotnoir (My27kgame) - Difalco
              Red Lane - Josh Bouthot (ManchVegasRacer) - Difalco

              Format: Each car was run for 2 minutes per lane. This was more than enough time to make our necks sore from the quick laps/times. The rotation was Blue, Red, and Yellow. Tires were cleaned with a sticky pad before each heat started.

              These cars were so fun to drive!! Kuddos to all of you and for letting us drive them! Having just looked at the standings, it would seem that this will be a very competitive proxy. There were many cars that faired much different on my track versus the first two. Good luck to everyone in the next rounds. I already have the cars boxed up and ready to send to Arrold in Nashville. I should be able to mail them out on Monday. Have a great weekend everyone!!!!!!!

                Josh, It looks like the Qualifying order is the same as the race finishing order, and that is different then what posted earlier.

                  Yep. You are right. A mistake on my part when cutting and pasting to make the Race Results Sheet. Sorry about that guys. The race results are correct.

                        Thank you for sharing the pictures and results - I will get the spreadsheet updated shortly!
                        (some cars DEFINITELY seemed to take a shining to this track in "race mode" blowing away their best qualifying times - WOW!)

                          Todd - thank you once again for the great work on the results, and especially for including laps per lane data. A certain data nerd will love playing around with that.
