    Getting Ready For The Worlds

    Lee, getting ready for the worlds I know our 1/32 Formula Ones have to be painted realistically, and the 1/32 Eurosport is pretty much the same as what we run here in The States, but that 1/24 Eurosport body is REALLY WEIRD Do we set up our cars for this body the same way we do here in the USA? The Red Fox Audi R10 we've been running lately looks like a school bus compared to the body for The Worlds!!! Oh, and the other thing is the narrow .800" rear tires instead of the nice big .900" we run here. Seems like we'd have the slippy slideys.

    ISRA Worlds Race

    George,

    Yes, when we race in ISRA (Europe) we have to race in their back yard under their rules. The cars we are racing today (1/24th and 1/32) have been developed for the European rules. All we do here is mount the USRA (new) R10 on and bolt on some 900s and away we go.

    After running the USRA R10 you will not like the ISRA R10. It is a lot shorter and more radical making a lessor handling car more critical to set up. We (you, Herman and I) will be testing in Chicago next week so you will see what I mean.

    Even though I haven't tested the new 1/32 R10 it looks like a smaller version of the USRA R10 so it should work quite well.

    I painted the ISRA Audi R10 yesterday....seems like there's something missing....like about an inch in length! Man, that thing is short, but still resembles the USRA R10 we've been running. The spoiler is a lot different. Well, I'll mount it up when we get to Chicago tomorrow, put a set of 800 tires and give it a try on the Midwest Monster. See ya there!

    Eurosport 24.
    Leave a vertical 1 m.m line in the front.
    Rear height of the body is teched on a block with recess for the rear wheels. You don't therefore have to think about the tire size when you mount the body.

    Good luck.

    The ISRA 2008 track

    The track is brand new. It is so new that the organizers hasn't even seen it.

    They, the organizer, will get the track this Sunday and I hope that I will be able to take som pictures. If I can't do that I think that Brian Saunders or some of his fellow countrymen will do take some photos.

    The weekend after this there will be a warm-up race on the track. The isra2008 web site has more info on that.

    Yeah, I know, I started the thread "getting ready for the worlds". Circumstances revolving around a daughter's wedding next November in, get this, Rwanda requires saving my vacation time as I also plan to head down to South Africa....it'll be about a 4 week trip. It came down to deciding between The Worlds this year, or the USRA Scale Nats in May 2009. The Nats won that particular contest. Not my year for The Worlds, but maybe Finland! By the way, your track looks INCREDIBLE. Have a great time guys! Oh, one more thing, I never saw Greg Gilbert eat an apple, but I have seen him devour a large hamburger at Mikes At The Crossroads.

    Going to the Worlds

    It doesn't look like I will be able to make the ISRA Worlds this year. I am working on a new business and can not take the time off. I also don't think Greg will be able to make it for the same reason. Herman James should be there along with Paul Garwronski so there will be a couple of top American racers racing. Both Greg and I hate to miss the number 1 race in the world but sometimes it can't be helped. Good luck to everybody racing the 2008 ISRA Worlds in October.

    hi Lee
    I'm sorry you cant make the Worlds. You and Greg will be missed.

    Have you used your single mag set up with 23/25 in 24 esport as well as 32nd?

    I would ask the same question of Woody?

    Regards

    Worlds Motors

    Hi Pat,

    Yes we use the same 23/25 motors in both 1/24th and 1/32 cars. On the 1/32s we use a little more choke.

    Very nice. I love the banana shaped driver's panel "straight".
    I also don't think guys have to worry about their cars getting
    damaged hitting the walls.
    Unless it's an optical illusion,they don't appear to be very tall.
    Maybe it was built that way for better visibility?
