Pics from my fone are really less than swell, but it's what I have.

 

A first for me, I actually track tested Proxy cars! Something I haven't been able to do before(lazy bastard!).

 

Testing at Buena Park Raceway gave me ...

Stock 36-D gave me low 1.500's at a blistering 30 MPH (yawn).

The altered gave me a best of 1.411, but doesn't repeat that, but runs low 1.420's.

The Daytona...well keep spectators away from the track as it has SPECTACULARLY CRASHED, TWICE! Goes like 70MPH though, so....

Quite a nice field of cars it's a pity Foamy's photos aren't better I would like a better look at that 65 to see how he did that endplate brush assembly I recently picked one up on ebay with the lamms ground similar & his 70 mph funny should be cool it will also be intresting to see how Boxerdog's jr fueler goes with the 196 & that light weight.

Foamy, are these a full 1320?

What voltage at BPR? 

Clean track or glued?

 

Yup, Sending proxy cars without testing is ... nail biting. Sending them tested is kind of a shot in the dark not ever seeing the track they run on. Drag proxy not so much.
