Question 2012 RAA builds

What are you building for 2012? Tweaks to your 2011 entry? Or a new car?

Probably tweaks to my 2011 car.

Possibly an LMP entry in 2012 as well.

Early days, though.

GT1 & LMP - both cars have been 'started' for many weeks.....

Waiting for:

1. This year's GT2 Jag to come back, so I can recycle those excellent SCC / CDB wheels...

2. The track list to be determined, so I can commence getting the set-ups wrong......

Cheers, Tony.

Was thinking of tweaking the 2011 entry until NSR came out with their R18. I am anxiously waiting to see when the the Slot.It Lola becomes available before making a commitment in any direction. I have started playing with the NSR to see what it can do.

Would also love to see the 2011 car back and compare its current performance on the home track to before it left.

I hope to see a few Audi R18s.

Then again I was expecting to see more of the Slotting + Reynards for 2011. I also was surprised that only two Radicals were entered.

Hi Guys

A total newbe here but I'm in with :

GT1 : Jaguar XKRS Red Line Oil # 12... Modding the body/chassis where needed and waiting for motor, parts...OEM setup SW

GT2 : Prosche 911 GT1 EVO Mobil #26 also awaiting (legal ) motor (or testing some that I have) for it and also in process of Modding the Body, but maintaining OEM SW setup...

Can't wait to get my butt kicked

Here's to you guys that work so hard to pull all this off....

Dick

New to RAA for 2012. Not sure if I am entering all three classes or not, but this is what's in the paddock so far:
LMP - Reynard 2kq by Spirit. Not fast enough yet though by a long shot even though I think it only has five stock parts left
GT1- Corvette C6R by NSR. Steve (redlynr) said it was getting there, :thumbup:
GT2- Aston Martin DBR9 or Ferrari 360 by SCX. Cars coming this week, fingers crossed.

I have a GT-1 Corvette C6 on the bench. I made a DeWALT livery.

Naw, his Maz is red and white... Mines going to gt2. We had a challenge last year to see if we could prep them, and they were a huge success, as you can see by his results in 2011, and as you will see in 2012 if I don't find something better; and I do have something in mind...

Hi Red.....

that's funny as I also have the #1 Jag, but dumb luck, actually good luck, if you stay with your choice, but I went with the #26 Mobil instead....had both cars. Hope you stay with yours...like to see the outcome of that...oppps I'm supposed to be the receiver of the butt kick'n

I almost went the Maz......but much to complicated for me with all those separate pieces....Ya I know Moby made it work.........
Hey I just noted on these Jag's the Headlites are painted on like NASCAR, as are the taillites, are these ok! with rule G.h.....man I hope so as I have put considerable work into the Body Mods already ???

Dick
