Sunny Sunday @ GCRC

Unfortunately I pulled out the camera a bit late. With about 12 cars on track. we had some decent tandems happening. Very very close.

Recently, I've been helping some others set up their cars. Hopefully in a way "they" like them.

There's no use driving your machine lap after lap and wondering why it's so difficult (especially when others have similar setups and no problems.)

The main topics of knowledge transfer have been

1. Spring tension. This is the single most important thing you can do to your car to bring a little balance or imbalance as need be. (with steering hand)

2. Power setting.  Using the motor power to override the chassis off throttle behaviour is the next focus (the trigger finger).

3. Braking. Whether it's neutral position brake to slow the car or invoking turn in with full use of the brake.

I'll write some articles on these for the bible soon.

We are getting some decent trains happening so come along and join us.
