Default Raa

Hi guys.......

I what to play to................some one new smack around..

I have no thought of actually winning... but I have been reading the RAA post(s) of the past and...well I want in....so I'm setting up 2 cars one for GT1 and one for GT2. Feed back on these, other than the butt kick'n I'm sure to get, will go a long ways in improving my tuning "skills" ya
right !

I only run on a Digital Ninco track (mine) so when I tune these with my regular non silicone tires .......well I'll only be guessing on the final tune when I (pull any chips of course) switch them to Classics to send to the RAA....

Let the fun begin...

Dick

Many rubber tire people will tune the car on rubber and then slap a pair of sillis on for the RAA. It leaves a little work undone. But if you are unwilling to run silicone on your track it is the best option.

My advice is to wait for the list of tracks before committing to a silicone. For the 2011 RAA Sillis were the right choice. Who knows for 2012?

Dick, if you have good grip with non-silicone tires on your Ninco track, I suggest you tune the car to your best ability with the tires that work best, then switch to trued Super Tires for the actual races (assuming sili's are the way to go). I've had trouble with race tuning for proxies because my wood track doesn't grip as well as many tracks on the various proxy circuits, so unforeseen hopping and rolling shows up on some high-grip proxy tracks.

Maddick.. This will be my first proxy and I will be doing to same. Depending on what is recommended I will be slapping on silicone tires before shipping. We run urethanes at my home track. We will probably be battling it out for last.....

Also, the first post doesn't confirm the cost. Is there a way to confirm a spot. Or go ahead and pay.

Same as last year, 20 bucks a pop.

I have also opened entry to one car per entrant per class... So you can enter all 3 classes if you choose.

I do the opposite if entering a rubber/urethane proxy... being a silly guy, I test on S2s then swap to my glued and trued Orts before shipping...

I wanted to run in the RAA P class this year so I purchased a white kit and almost finished painting it, now the rules have changed.
Before I buy another white kit and paint will the Audi R18 TDI be allowed, it's not on the list?

What rule changed that would affect a body?

Yes, R18 is in.

Super Tires are not bad at all on Ninco. Very different from S1/S2.
Both my Can Am entries were tested on Ninco wearing the S.T. tires that were send with...

Default tires

First ..........thanks to all who replied.

timkoul...........It's not that the silicone tire (tyre) is "bad" on Ninco it's just that I ran rubber form the get go and the the track is "rubbered in" real nice and there is no way I'm going to mix the two...thanks for thoughts thu..

Hi, I see a payment dead line. PP again, Send, Pers. Gift as it where.
But do not see a dead line for the cars to be where ever they need to be?
Cheers, Andy, who may have missed it.
