This weekend the second leg of the Swedish Nationals was held in Karlskrona. In my opinion the best track in Sweden with it's elevated strait and up and down corners that requires good driving skills to master.

This year all good drivers was collected in the sam Raceclass with no turbo allowed.

There was a special cut video made last year and i guess that it will be made this year also but it will take som time. For now these uncut vids from some finals are the only thing to enjoy. Watch the fight in the B-Final. David in the black car wasn't the fastest but managed to hold on to the first spot thanks to Jonas eager to overtake befor the right moment cam across.

It's really a shame that Karlskrona MiniRacing Club has to leave the premisess and thus the track will become dust :-(.

The movies:
Karlskrona A-final 1 (http://www.miniracingbolaget.com/cup/Video/Karlskrona_A-final1.wmv)
Karlskrona A-final 3 (http://www.miniracingbolaget.com/cup/Video/karlskrona_a-final3.wmv)
Karlskrona B-final (http://www.miniracingbolaget.com/cup/Video/karlskrona_B.wmv)
Karlskrona C-final (http://www.miniracingbolaget.com/cup/Video/Karlskrona%20C-final.wmv)

Only some of the battle in the B-Final is seen her. Jonas caught David 3 times during the 6 min race. With only 30 seconds to go he made the final attempt to pass David but cut the corner to tight when trying to pass and ended up just seconds after David. Hopefully Peter who also taped this has som gott pics of the battle.

holy cr*p..... man those cars are fast... :eek: .... what's the track surface? and what tires do you run? foams? i saw a tire truer somewhere on the vid...

... and remember this is a no-fet class too... we use foams, grp gandini up-front, and miniracingbolaget foams in the rear. foams give superior grip!

With high grip you don't want too much power. Stock FETs running an x-speed or great with lots of grip can be fast and handle fast. With too much power you start to exceed grip and your just fighting the car. Have yet to see the video but I've seen the others and they are really fast.

As Ola says we are running GRP GAnding/Powertires in the front and so called Super Rears in the rear.

The Super rears are produced by Miniracingbolaget, a retailer in Sweden. You do have to glue them on your own which is something you'd like to avoid if possible.

And of course you have to use a tire truer to get the tires into proper size. But we are always truing our tires into proper size. No one in top 6 ran with larger tires then 23mm front and 24mm rear.

The paddock usually get's smoking when the truers start to work when a new tirecombination is called out :-)

goodness... non fet cars??? :eek: :eek: what kind of set ups do you do on your car?
(i.e. springs? dampers? motors?)

what's the track surface? and what lapcounter system do you use? (looks like lapz???) sorry for lots of questions...

No one in top 6 ran with larger tires then 23mm front and 24mm rear.
can you post some pics on those tires? man those tires seem wide... kinda wondering how they fit under the body...

It's all kinds of springs and spacers in the front, with or without lowering the front with shims. Almost all drivers, naaaeee, all drivers in Sweden are using some Damper plate system. Atomic is popular but no many of us are using the Kyosho damper for the RM mounted on an MM, a bit tricky but it works.

Ola Westholm posted his setup earlier in this tread:
http://www.mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=19452

Gearing (9 pinion) and small changes to the setup was made for this track on my account otherwise I ran this setup.

Miniracingbolagets cup are using handout motors. Atomic stock is the one we are using.


what's the track surface? and what lapcounter system do you use? (looks like lapz???) sorry for lots of questions...

The main track surface we are using in Sweden is some kind of rubber carpet. I think that it's used under the floor in sport areanas an so on. There has bee lost of discussion on this subject, search for Regupol.

And yes it's LapZ, you have good eyes :-)

Not the witdh, the diameter :-)
Our rules only allowes us to use 11,5 mm wide tires...

I can't believe what kind of speed you are getting with just an xspeed... that's insane. I must agree that regupol is the best grip surface that is available but custom built tracks aren't as popular here in North America... you see mostly RCP tracks, which have great traction but just isn't pure recycled rubber like regupol.

I'm getting all the videos now... damn they are big. The one on the website with the music and the tour bus is awesome... I have to download that one while i'm at it.

Atomic Stock is a bit better then the Xspeed. A few Xspeeds have the speed as the Atomic but the Atomic has neo magnets and a much better torque and are also better in general.

And yes, Regpol provides very good grip with low friction. I don't know about the RPC track but with it's renome here it has to be good.

So, it looks like the Enzo has lost the "body of choice" status... what is the body of choice these days? Since this was so competitive I was suprised to see so many different bodies... usually you get a body that everyone agrees handles the best or great... what body is that these days?

Lots of Mclarens. I think the post from their first video said they run the Mclaren because it's so nimble and quick handling. It's my personal favorite.

we almost exclusively use mclarens. they shift the weight from side to side really quickly and rotates around it's own axis really nice. The mclaren is a really light body too, and combined with a lot of titanium and plastic ( i.e motor mount etc) the cars a really quick.
I guess the enzo is the choice if you are using rubbertires, since it is less nervous than the Mac's, but with foams the mclaren simply rules!

I love the McLarens... hated the enzo.

zthe McLaren was well recieved.

At the speed you guys were going I thought there were a few nsx's but i was speed blind.
