Spiritracer #3, 86 laps Fast lap 6.884 Lack of speed, geared to high
Lance #50, 78 laps Fast lap 7.131 To much power, spin the tires easy

Thanks Austin,
While it was a rush to get the car together,not changing that guide looks like it may bite me in the butt. Maybe it will move up on other tracks. Lesson procrastination can kill you.

I did change the guide on the Carrera Ferrari that moved into GT1. I hope it represents.

Hats off to you and Dale

Congratulations to all the podium finishers. Um the Ferrari didn't do well stepping into GT1. Hope I have better results in the P class. Look to see any performance comments you might have. Thanks for hosting and getting this proxy going. I first heard of this proxy in Model Car Racing Magazine.

Hi All,

Thanks for running the round - congrats to the various Podiumites....

I'll take that 3rd - the ways things are going lately for me in proxy land, I'll take what ever I can get!

Are you able to put together a set of specs for that cars to go along with the photos? It's always interesting to see the various combinations entrants come up with......

And - is there any kind of schedule to the number of races making up this RAA? I saw the proposed track host list, but not sure if that's definite...

Thanks again....
Cheers, Tony.

Ok - so what happens next?

I've been advised that Kidvoltage hasn't seen the cars or heard from anyone about the RAA - hence my concern..... Is it a problem that there are only 17 entries, and the interest isn't really there?

As someone who has made a considerable investment in this, I'd sure like to see things move along one way or another....

Cheers, Tony.
