Trinity S16D on left, too fast.

Deathstar in middle, too slow.

Used handout AMSRA S16D race motor I found in a baggie marked "good" is perfect :)

Now all I have to do is blueprint it and clean it up.

 Pablo, I have the driver head for the Jupiter, Forget to send it , I guess the extreme heat got to it.

 

 The cars LOOK great! The passenger in the buggy looks scared.

 

 I am going to clean and reglue the track for the Dec. 5th race, Hope to try out these cars on a clean track.

 

We will pass out the rules for 2016 and the free hand out body for the JK indy class.

I was lucky enough to have Greg Gilbert on hand today to help assess the performance of the cars :)

Go-Kart test #1 was a complete success. Motor has perfect power, good brakes, and runs cool. 

Handling was excellent; it wants to stay planted in the slot even when pushed hard.

No bad habits, so we handed it off to Minnie and she loved it. (not just the hair and pink motor :))

She pushed it fairly hard also. Zero deslots between 3 different testers, Go-Kart mission accomplished :victory:

 

Jupiter test #2 with milder motor and Wonder Rubber - all 3 of us pushed it pretty hard. Stays planted in the slot real well - only one deslot.

Power and gearing is now correct, good speed and brakes, runs cool, and the modern rubber worked much better.

Billy had fun driving it. Jupiter mission accomplished. :victory:  

Onward......
