Can I get a count of the clubs that are planning on running the BTE for December 2016.

I need to see who is running so I can plan the track. Our Club doesn't have the room for a typical 3 wide L track so if we have enough clubs participating that we will just skip the December track. if participation is lower I'd like to make a new design track that will work for our space using the wide turns, it's be about a 2-1/2 Wide L track design with the wide turns.

Let me know if you are planning to participate.

DC is in, I'll take a slightly smaller layout if it allows you to participate :p not the same without top tier competition ;)

we ran HFAY yesterday.
fyi.. track #16 is the one with 5 bump tiles so we ran without a bump tile on the far right. (ie., changed it to a straight)

This was a fun lay out. My car in mod was way to fast for me to stay consistent. I think the car being so fast is what makes running mod so much fun for me. I wish we could run mod every week!!!:D I run the PN 32T motor. I usually run more consistent in mod. I think that I got behind early and trying to make it up made me run even worst. But it was still fun. I have not looked to see if Ray posted the videos of the races yet.

Yeah I feel ya Mike. I like to see the cars go really fast but that doesn't always equate to more laps...faster...but not always more.

I think I'm going to figure out how to quickly switch from my 599 to my lexan body for open class. I think that's the only way I can take advantage of the power and speed increase.

Those bodies are just not forgiving one the side rails.

Mike what body are you running on your mod car? I'm running the Audi R8 on mine.

I had a run that was 129 laps on the BTE Track (fast lap was 4.25 second), not super clean but my car was plenty fast. It wasn't an official race and on race night I let Nino borrow my car to run, so his time are what is posted.

I am running the 599XX. It is very forgiving on the side rails.

I run the same body on both cars. Really the exact same body. LOL. I switch it from car to car. :eek: :) I think the guys all make fun of me behind my back because it looks so bad!

I think that I had one 4.2 lap but really don't remember. I know I had plenty of 4.3 laps. Bill came up to me after the race and told me.

I haven't tried the 599 body, I'm running the same old Mclaren F1 LM body on my racer. Still my favorite body.

i'm going to try the 599 for S23. I've run the R8 for a long time now and just looking to switch it up this season and it's the same fit as the R8 to no setup changes, yet. it will be an interesting start for the year; R8 for stock and MOD, 599 for HFAY, CLK for 94mm, F40 for 90mm. Can't wait to get S23 started this weekend!

We'll have to check the race data, I'm curious as well.

You'll notice a difference in the balance and rotation. The R8 is a very balanced and light weight body compared to the 599. The 599 is a bit more robust and stiffer than the R8. I love practicing with the R8 but ultimately the 599xx is the best for me.

Nino and I had the same fast lap for our group. 4.41 with our 70T cars.

In the end for me the fast lap is meaningless because you can have the fastest lap but still get beat by 10 laps if you can't be consistent.

this the the order of importance to me.

1. Fast and consistent. :) Highest lap count
2. Slightly Slower but Consistent, lower lap count, but still good.
3. Consistent, descent lap count.
4. Fast but not consistent, Usually enough mistakes to finish in the bottom.

Hi Guys,

Western Zydney Racer have been running every month in 2016 and would like to return to HFAY comp. Can we join in for this BTE.

The BTE closed at the End of December. We'll have another one in June. Final Results have already been posted.

Looking forward to having you guys back running the HFAY points series. Also remember that the time trials are always live to be run at anytime. Our club has a fun time trying to know the next faster guy down a spot so it's a great competitive thing as well. :)
