Lloret de Mar 1/10 electric setup added: 27.08.2013

Associated with track: Lloret de Mar
 


This is my setup for Lloret de Mar, the car is a little nervous on braking but it is fast (97km top speed) and agile in corners. Also the important think is that it doesn't overheat in the 5 min race. I have the punch setting at mild because I like the smooth acceleration that offers me while I exit the corner with the wheels still turning trying to keep the car on my lines , you can try a stronger setting here if you like (I didn't yet) but maybe it will overheat.

Hope that this will be helpful ;-)

Posted by: Panos Stavropoulos (GR) on 31.8.2013 0:38:35 (UTC) Thank you for this info Miklos, I was wondering how the real track fells comparing to "ours" and I wanted to hear from someone that drove both!


It was a temporary track built in the car park of a hotel on the beach. Only a large scale (1/5) race was held there as an additional program of the Catalunya Rally.
It was a very special race because of the place and as part of the World Rally Championship's programs, it was organised on a level that was "luxurious" comparing to even world class RC events at that time.
The final was run after the rally finished, in the 'protesting' period, before the prizegiving ceremony.
All great rally drivers (Sainz, Grönholm, Hirvonen, Markko Martin etc.) were there standing by the fence and watching the RC final like children.
It's one of the greatest memories of RC racing for me. It was like Monte Carlo in F1.
Sadly, the WRC race has been moved from Lloret, the last race was in 2004.

The track itself was quite simple, apart from being very bumpy at the end of the long 'straight' which was actually a very long left turn, so it was very hard to find the right braking point consistently.
It's hard to compare VRC with the real thing since there is nothing like Large Scale TC in VRC, but generally it definitely gives the feeling, at least for me.

Posted by: Miklos Hejjas (HU) on 30.8.2013 23:45:50 (UTC) Hi Guys, Braking zone issues can be cured by reducing brake amount. I found it consistent with 43% on setup, and 80% ATL on transmitter. Overheating: VRC has some issues regarding overheating. Sometimes it occurs only at the first run after entering car setup. 107/30 didn't work for me either, I'm on 108/30 and it's stable. best regards Miklos and thanks for the setup. The track is trickier in VRC than it had been for real. Edited by author: 30.8.2013 23:47:56 GMT

Posted by: Nuno Jacinto (PT) on 27.8.2013 21:57:57 (UTC) Hi Panos, thanks for sharing your set up, liked good steering for me but even with your set up i have overheating problems. Can anyone help me on this? cant race this track with a lower T engine, the lower the Turns the fast i overheat it.



Hi Nuno,
Try to put a 28 pinion then, and I don't thing that you will have overheating problem any more. Probably will lose 0,150 sec (that much I lost form 32 to 30 pinion) in your lap time but with a little more practice you will cover it :-)
