Let me suggest the Scaley Aston Martin DBR9, Scaley 911 GT3R, Scaley Nissan Skyline… all of those would make good choices. The Aston Martin probably being the most durable of the group. If the shop’s supplying the cars, they should all be identical, so the shop might think of having Speedy take identical cars and paint them in different liveries.Hank80 said:Just to let everybody know, we are in the planning stages of doing and enduro race. 4 hours will be the first.
Now here are some of the ideas we have had:
1. Everybody will qualify. (Now as for the car and so on this has TBD.) Does everybody run thier car or does the shop supply the car? Please before any Comments read this: The shop will supply the 4 or 5 cars for the teams racing. We are looking at the types and availabilty of the cars now. But the cars must have headlights and tail lights. So the shop is looking, ok?
This sounds great. It keeps everybody even.Hank80 said:2. The control for this race will what is provided by the shop. Meaning no DF or any other. (case closed).
Just make sure that each team has at least of the new drivers, so that the beginning drivers have a chance. You might trying placing the fastest with the slowest (except this might cause sandbagging), or you can base it on the average of the Friday night race results (which would probably be the better idea).Hank80 said:3 After all qualifing is done the top 4 qualifiers we be the team "captains". Now here in lies a problem do we let the captains pick their next 2 drivers or does the shop assign them? Meaning team 1 would get drivers 5 and 9? Your thoughts on this?
The only thing I would change on this would be to give them a little more time, so that they can learn to work together. Possibly an hour and a half to two hours.Hank80 said:4 Car assignment after all qualifing is done, the team captain picks their car from a blind draw. The reason being, the shop is providing the cars and such. After the cars are chosen, the teams will then chose their spare motors from 2 more additional blind draws? After all cars and motors are chosen, the team will have about 1 hour to set up and practice with the cars of their chosing. Does this sound fair enough everybody?
Perfect!Hank80 said:5 Only work to be done on the cars is during green flag racing, NO EXCEPTIONS. (if there are 5 teams. Team number 5 or who ever is sitting out the car will be impounded. NO EXCEPTIONS.
No driver should be allowed to race more than half, and all drivers should get at least 20 minutes on the track.Hank80 said:6 Drivers will race on each lane for 20 minutes during 4 hours. Should there be a minimum or maximum time for the drivers? Do you let your best driver race most of most of the race?
Hopefully this race will get a good turnout, and bring in some of the drivers that haven’t been showing up.Hank80 said:Any thoughts you have share them, I would like to make this a positive thing, ok?
Hank80 said:I was glad to see the positive feedback!
Personal, I dont think there is an advantage. We just want everybody to use what the shop is going to provide. We think by doing it this way it will bring the a level field concerning the controllers. BUT...
In a future enduro, we might allow them. But that might be in the future. On the other hand we might just stay with this format.
As for the cars, we are looking at maybe a SCX type of lemans or Scaley cars. I think the Porsche 911 had 2 different chassis pans. One with 2 screws and one with 4 screws.
We just want to try and control everything that takes place concerning cars, motors, and handles.
More or less like a full counter part! But like I said this is still in the early planning stages.
Any more ideas, from you or your Dad, please send them along.
