Team Powell\'s Class 10 Test Footage

Well my team went out recently to improve our setup on our class 10 car for our upcoming VORRA Lovelock 250 race on Labor Day weekend. We drove back out to Richland ORV Park in Washington, literally next to the Hanford Nuclear Power Facility. We tested on the same stretch of terrain we did last March. This time we had a 3mm longer stroke in the engine due to new class 10 rules this season. Also a larger cam, the WebCAM 121/125 and of course we revised our shock valving based on the video footage we took in March. Lastly we went to a chassis dyno and took about 20 different readings with a matrix of different jet sizes in the carb and we played a little bit with the timing. The result was a gain of 15mph over the same terrain and a lot smoother (and more fun) ride over the whoop-dee-doos. My team drove alongside the course again and filmed some of the runs. I'd like to thank them for all their hard work this year and the time they put in on the car. I'd also like to thank Mike Arthur at Kartek for his advice on tuning our suspension. Here is one of the test runs in .mov and .mpg format to view.
Enjoy,
Doug

Hey Gabe, thanks for the compliments. We are seriously thinking about going to Primm. All depends on how well the Lovelock race goes and how the vehicle holds up. We'd be a late entry if we do. I'll let you know.

I will work on a getting a smaller video file tonight for those of you on a modem that have emailed me. Sorry for such the large file size, just wanted a clear image of the suspension working. Check back tomorrow...
