The team are back at NDOR this week after last week’s 1/5th scale race, the track was not open for practice. We were as our egar readers will know at Deerdale that week.
The track was very slippery after the 1/5th’s had been on chucking 2stroke oil everywhere so we were going through a few different sets of tyres trying to find the right amount of grip.
In the end we had a mixture of mini spikes and mini pins which we found were best to get round the track.
Demsparky fitted a savox 1258 in his steering this week and was putting it through its paces on the track in his own words and i quote:
“I cant tell if the servo has made the car better, or if i am just getting better”
With this amount of concentration on his face i don’t think it was so much the servo.
After he was catching most of the action shots from our last visit to Deerdale it was only fair i caught some of him going round the track.
There are some much better quality pictures coming when Demsparky has edited them, as the title suggests “Van Starting RC Cars” We had that much fun today at NDOR that we killed our starter box batteries, a receiver battery each, 1 glow start and Demsparky’s camera battery, not to mention we had used a gallon of fuel by the end of the day also.
So having no power in both our starter box’s we needed a way to start the cars up Demsparky, decided it was a good idea to start the cars from his van battery. There are 2 problems with that 1 the cable we made up quickly was only 10cm long so the starter box had to sit on top of the battery. Secondly the van battery is under the passenger seat foot well so the car would need to be started inside the van, here is how this quick fix worked out.
Epic fail the first time round, but you think that’s going to stop us?, i don’t think soooo…..
As promised here are the rest of the action shots
