@ Nick...naturally i mean 2h 45min x Heat
While this event also sounds very exciting, I'm not sure about running the FIA GT cars and the weight calculator using the Plafit Fox 2 motor..
Our friends in Aus have also adopted the Ferrari/IMCA rules to get them up to speed, but apparently have found the Fox 2 motors do not handle the heavy cars, and get VERY hot.. They have had to reduce the weight to 180 grams and less just to keep the motors alive.
What we've done in South Africa is used the Yellow Scaleauto SC0012 motor, which has almost identical speed to the Proslot and Fox motors on that gearing..
Thought you might be interested.
We race since a few years with the Cheetah 2 motor on gearing 8-9 / 42-46.
Weight of our cars varies from 180-240 gr. No problem here except for normal motor wear.
I have Yesterday make some test, with new Grip on the track and a 204 g Car with Procom 3 Tires and Foy 2 Motor @ 11,5V and i dind´t notice after 100 turns any changes on the Motor, this with a very high speed combination gearinf 11 / 39. Now i have to talk to Tamar and ask him if it possible to make an WeightCalculator for the Fox II motor, naturally the cars will get mucht Lighter because the fox II isn´t so Powefull like The Euro MK. In the other hand i Think that The FoxII ias a really reliable Motor with a Reasonable Price (around 8€) Iam also Talking to Drivers in Germany The have a lot of Experience With Fox II and Spongetires on Woodentracks and i will get a lotz of Input about how "Fat " have to be an Slotcar with this kind of Motor.
I will keep you all informed.
isn't the DTSW series racing Fox II in Germany?
Yes you are right! this Series uses Spongetires and Fox Motor on GT Cars. from this series i can get for example the Weight.
Hello Tamar please don´t forgett to send me the Weight Calculator to start testing.
The provisional Time Schedule for the 3rd. Slotracingmarathon are online, we still working to vreate a Weight Calculator for the Plafit Fox II Motor, we will drive with sponge tires, and the base weight for the cars will be 185 gr. The rules weill be online in te beginning of the week.
@ Tamar: Thanks for the Weight Calculator
