      Oh. I see what you mean. The lack of detail inside the hairpin on the lower right of the photo is glaring!

      Maybe a second career as a professional slot track builder, Rob? If only you could get Jay Leno to endorse you...

      BTW, I love that Dunlop Bridge. Looks kind of familiar.

    Haha thanks guys! Race #9 has been taking me a while to get set up and prepared for. Why does work get in the way of all my plans!?

    I also wanted to mention that once this race is over the next round will be hosted by our friend Chrisguyw for the grand finale. You are in for a treat!

    Austin’s car has very bad wear on one rear tire. The adhesive used for the interior’s tray came loose causing the interior tray to ride on the rear tire and now rub on the spur gear. I’ll glue the interior back into position. Interior’s coming loose and causing damage to various degrees in proxy cars is not uncommon but I have never seen this amount of damage.

      Wow! What Loan Shark said. I've never seen that much wear done to a tire by a hanging interior.

    Qualifying is over, here are the final results. Car were qualified in reverse order of the overall standings. The track has not been ran since the Revoslot proxy so I had to dry wipe the roadway with a microfiber cloth and then run numerous laps with a wide rubber Group 5 car and a narrow rubber Touring car to make sure the grip was as it should be. I was surprised my car had the fastest time as I was expecting RobNC's car to finish on top as it is a very confident drive and is extremely planted. Lots of very well built cars in this series, as you know it is anybody's game when it comes to a race, good luck everyone!

            SirCgyRacer, thank you for the qualifying and of course that lovely chart of yours. Also Congratulations on toy TQ and SirRobNC for your podium and SirChrisGuyW the same. Good luck to all the builders on Raceday and hopefully a special guest can show up and drive these cars for us. We will have to wait and see

              Hi guys quick update: apologies for not being able to run the race yet. I have been severely affected by the labor shortage and I have been working many hours. My worst day lately is Friday where I work 5:30AM to 10:30PM......yes that is 17 hours. Right now I am writing this from work as I was here at 5AM, not fun working weekends too!

              Work can pay me to post on the forum today! If anyone is a Power Engineer, Boilermaker.........please come to Kelowna!

              My plan now is to run this round on a day before I go to work, I will start a little later that day. I will try for this week and notify the boys.
