17/18 December 2016 Rc-Evolution track in Ranica Italy
the past week end we was in Ranica for the 13.5T blinky class LRP/AE Challenge the rules provide the using of the Lrp 13.5 Motor and Esc with motor on fixed timing.
The track is Amazing with a flowing layout and an high grip carpet but not easy to find the perfect setup.
We start the free practice on saturday with the standard setup but we find the car was to soft for the conditions so we decided to go up with harder roll springs front and rear 9.5 front and 12.0 rear and the car was much better with more corner speed and a flat chassis who was good for a fast change direction chicane.
in the nexts test we was going harder also in the rear heave damper using a 6.3 spring; again the car steers better in a fast long corner.
As always my friend and mechanic Reto Felix is an important key to my races. Thank you Reto
the rest of the day we use the practice to understand the difference between new and used tires.
Sunday morning 3 qualy: position 4th
Sunday afternoon 3 finals: overall position 3rd
As mentioned the car for me works better with a front softer than rear.
For shure we can do better next time because we have more data on working in setup with the Serpent 4x
I would like to congratulate Simone Colombo for putting his Serpent 4x in the A Main in the 17.5T Blinky class
