Back Off 5%…

Something a little bit different last night including a crossover.

Another legendary driver’s briefing πŸ˜‰

Al reiterated what I put on the website last week including a beautiful demonstration of what backing off 5% looks like by taking one step back. As funny as it was, you guys did seem to take notice and the driving standard looked much better this week with the exception of Les who just wanted to watch the world burn, or at least his Durango anyway…

Les_Needs_Help

Joking aside, this was caused by the a CVD pin coming loose in the central drive train and it cutting into the top of the cell. A very visual reminder that model car racing can be dangerous and that safety has to come first. Well done to Andy for extracting it from the Hall so quickly πŸ™‚

Week 11, Driving standards and Etiquete

Results Updated

Track_20141112

Good little track last night. I really enjoyed it even if I couldn’t string more than 2 consecutive laps together without crashing… πŸ™„

Driving Standards & Etiquete…

We are seeing a steady decline in some quaters in both driving standards and etiquete which is a real shame. We always knew it would take a bit of time for you guys to get to grips with the Astro surface but now it’s time for everybody to step up and improve the quality of the racing. Here’s a few things that will help improve the racing for everyone πŸ™‚

Rope Jumping

If you find yourself on the wrong side of the rope and it is not practical for you to hop back over, WAIT! Any lap where you’ve jumped the rope should not be one of your fastest laps. You’ve missed out some of the track and you should not gain any advantage from it. If you were just ahead of someone when you crossed the rope, rejoin after they’ve gone past. If you were 1m behind someone when you crossed, rejoin 2m behind them. It’s a simple self regulating penalty that we are all capable of applying.

Causing an accident

Caused an accident? WAIT! Again, it’s not rocket science. If you take someone out, wait for them to rejoin the track before continuing. If they need marshalling, wait for them to be marshalled.

The speed of your car!

Quite a few cars on the track that are overpowered for the drivers ability (particularly in the mid to lower heats). They have way too much boost and turbo on the speedo. These cars are dangerous and tend to cause more accidents simply because they are difficult to control. Back off the boost and you and everyone around you will probably have a better race πŸ™‚ . If you need help with changing your settings, just ask.
