I figured Steve Lowrider or someone from WSCC may have posted this earlier.
These appeared on Facebook, but I think they should only be taken as provisional untill ratified by Mr. Lowrider

Results from WSCC Round 13.

Well Done Lowrider, Pablo, and Weldon/Walker for the podium.
Pretty close racing at the pointy end.

I don't get it either, Steve. The culmination of the biggest proxy event the world has ever known, and then, silence.

I fear the Facebookers have abandoned us and moved on. Maybe I'm wrong, but the fact is, the silence is deafening :o

I am just burned out on it all Paul.  Holidays are upon us, plus I have given up any hope of doing well in a proxy race.  Having more fun racing Flexi cars locally anyway...and going back to professional illustration finally!

Paul, yeah, facebook (and other social media) is spreading us too thin.
I'm on there, but I try to keep the forums up to date as well.
I've seen it on other forums and groups. Some participants think it is a good thing to kick off a fb page, and it is good, but the forums should be the main point for communication, seeing as that's where the whole thing originated from. :(

Anyway, well done to the Pablo machine. :)
It is a great car, fun to drive, and getting stronger as the event rolled on.

One note to all the Thingee participants, Its a great idea to run the motor coolers. Out track is 12.5V but the wiring is very good and the motors get strong power all the way round.  There was one car that stopped with only 40 seconds to go. I think it was from the B heat, light yellow Team Last minute Men.

Here are some of the pictures guys.
 

I did not lose interest at all and am up for any proxy one comes up with.
This proxy I again learned some very valuable things (weight) and looking forward to implement them.

 

There might be something up in the near future.

Sorry for the prolonged silence here.  Nothing personal, I can assure you all!

The last time I attempted to post, shortly before the final race, I was unable to do so.  I've now put that down to a temporary computer or forum glitch but I wondered for a while ...

 

I'll repost the final positions and work out the Choti Challenge points over the weekend.

 

I hope everyone here had at least some fun over the Lucky 13 series.  I know it can get a little thin when things don't go well but I'm happy with the way the series ran and, compared with my previous experience, it seemed to go smoothly enough most of the time.

 

Regards,


Steve-a-roonie Kempson

I had found out to late but do greatly appreciate you do. :clapping:
It inspires and helps others to pick up the Iron and make something.

 

But I think I will improve the chassis design it has now and shed some grams of it's weight.

Guys can anybody help me out here...

Been digging trough posts as I am trying to find a thing I promised. :sarcastic_hand: 
I was going to give a 50/50 reward to the winner of a certain proxy race...I and someone else did it.
I think it was Bob and it was for a race on Mike´s raceway but I can not find it anymore  :crazy: 


Now I am not certain anymore which proxy it was either..it is the heat here I tell you at 40 degrees plus my brain is not functioning properly..
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Bob,

 

Much appreciated I trawled trough there until page 9 and then gave up...
It totally slipped my mind and I missed it somehow but have payed it now.

 

Hate to make promises and not keep them...nearly as much as making one and forgetting it :dash2:
