Thanks again Jens.

I think you missed my question in post##689 

 

Do you have any feedback on my car before the pinion came loose?

How did it handle how much laps it did on what lane compared to others?
Any things that can be improved besides the pinion 

This will give me some idea of what could have been. :unknw:

Excellent Jens.

Thank you very much for that  :good: 

I would be in for more races if possible and if someone could fix my pinion.

Also if any of the drives have feedback on how the cars handled that would be nice,

that is if they can remember how and what the cars did.

Always good to know what can be improved for future builds.

when I have the money again I will see if I can buy a new body and get the same decals and a decal setting liquid to set the decals proper as the ones I used really needed that to take the curves of the car as one can see.

Thanks to all those who organized this event and the racers who participated in this proxy race.  Looks like they had a good time racing these little beauties.  Congrats to the podium finishers.  Pictures were great and looks like the after race festivites were rewarding too!

As my understanding is, that only Jaak (# 707) and me want more races, I'll send the cars "home".

 

Slotbaker/Steve King gave me his Australian address, so I'll have the opportunity to send it directly to him.

 

Is there any other wish of "direct - mailing", please let me know. Otherwise I'll send all cars back to the sender in US.

 

Once again: It was really good fun, to drive these "babies". The results are showing the competitivnes of the cars very well.

 

We should continue this kind of races!!

 

:good:  :victory:  :clapping:  :)

I don't do paypal but I would be happy to re-imburse any shipping charges any other way. If Ray

wants to handle it, I can pay him whatever. 

Too bad this is winding down. I almost started to believe this was going to be a perpetual proxy.

I would call for a tune up and a grudge race later this summer.

I would like to see the data analysis:  Weight, gearing, driving impressions, breakage issues(if any)such as pinion, body mounts, tires, etc.

 

NEXT race, the builders get to race them.

Hi,

 

sorry, but I've been busy on professional duties.

 

Having the personal addresses from Paul, # 12, Ken, # 3, Jaak and Steve, I'll send their cars directly to them.

 

As my car is already "home" I could send the other 6 ones to Ray, as he suggested.

 

I'll try to do so during this week!

 

:good:  :)

Jens, save yourself some trouble and please include my white and gold car in the group going to Ray. Ray, gift my car to Swiss and it can stay there. It would just collect dust here at "The Wolcott Ranch" anyway.

 

I heard a rumor Swiss is gearing up for G7 racing again so he can use it to practice on the flat track in his spare time  :crazy:  :good:

It would be a shame if this should have been the last race. It was so much fun!

 

Please let me know if there will be another opportunity and I'll send my car round the world!

 

There is an envelope for each one with the corrected results and one personal picture!

 

Once again thanks from Germany!

For consideration,

 

If you guys want to give it a Kurtis Proxy go here on the oval at 11 or 12 volts I could make that happen.

Great group of local drivers that have thousands and thousands of laps practice on that track.

 

Or maybe on this 5 lane oval ... this is a picture of some of the 'local crew' of drivers.

 

I have an extra kit on hand if someone new wants in, Mike Swiss might have more kits available as well.

 

I'll buy the box plaques for all entered.

Cool ... so far that make 3 of us. :clapping:  :clapping:  :clapping:

 

Jaak,

Unless you guys want to add a concours judging component we could run them as they are. You can even add ehasust with chrome tape and do a touch up if you want.

 

We could just have a wheel to wheel good old time on an oval where Indy cars these belong.

 

Mike Swiss ... Do you have these bodies in stock for those the want new?

Hey Bob,


I guess you are right.

It would be better to race it as is and then after the race "restore" it passed it's former glory.

The car was a good learning experience on how not to do Decals lol.


I will give it some TLC as planned and fix the pinion again.

If we can get 8 or more cars committed it will be a go !!!

 

 

With the first car .... this time ..I'm ready for a change ... LOL.

There is a second kit here with a much nicer painted body I could finish up to get the car count up or sell the kit and put the new body on this car.

Wide open !

I'm in   #8

 

Awesome Ray. :good:

 

Why do you need 8 cars for a 5 lane track

The first choice is on the banked 8 lane oval at Bill Pinch's Raceway. :)

 

We could run ether or ... or maybe both. :shok:

 

We run 'crash and burn' only on the Kenny's 5 lane'r so it's pretty much all driver and luck  :crazy:

 

 If you guys want to give it a Kurtis Proxy go here on the oval.

I'm in if there a few races.

 

Blue #67 arrived home yesterday.

 

She'll get a grease and oil change, plus new rubber.

 

Where do I send her to?

 

 

Jens, many thanks for all of your efforts running the Minerva round, and returning the cars.

Great news Steve.
That would make 7 entries committed.
 
I'm not sure I can promise more than one event locally. 
 
The small flat oval at Brandywine does not have a lap counter and we run it Crash and Burn style. This is fantastic fun but I'm not sure how we could do a proxy with fairness. It is not about judging and great handling fast cars, it is all about the driving and luck. 
 
It will be an outstanding show and race on 8 lane oval at Bill Pinch's Raceway.biz store.
 
I do feel optimistic that I/we can find another oval venue here in the States.
 
How about an 'Official Pace Car' for this show ... :D
