Camaro Test



Camaro Test

Three Pioneer Camaros.


Pioneer STEALTH Camaro 396 SS Street Car – Ref: P042


Pioneer Chevy Camaro Pacific Team #38 Blue – Ref: P014


Pioneer Chevy Camaro Pacific Team #23 Orange – Ref: P013


Okay, now their out. How do they go. I first needed a bench mark, so what better than a modified Mustang NB.


Mods to this. 23,000 Typhoon motor, 13/31 gearing, Slot Car corner 5S1508 on front with NSR zero tyres, to the rear 5S1511 shod with what I think are PaulG tyres. Unsure of this though. Time to beat on the middle Yellow lane 18,099 Mtrs. 8.864s.

Cars are run out of the box, as is, NEW. nothing done to them at all. this will come later.

Funny how 3 cars are so different . All ran fine. loose, all over the corners on my wooden track, but what car OOTB is not. Even NSR’s need a bit of tyre care. Smoothest was by far the P014, nosiest the P042.

So a time for all three set.

P042, 10.094s.

P013, 9.706s

P014, 9.880s

Time to true the tyres. and then see.

Times. each car ran 10 laps

P042, 9.712s.

P013, 9.384s

P014, 9.136s

Again, another tyre true, and some ASTT (Andy’s special tyre treatment), and another ten laps each.

P042, 8.560s.

P013, 8.984s

P014, 8.624s

See chart below for more info.


A bit more play, and I think these time will come come down a bit, by a few tenths.

And for a bit of fun. Me by myself, racing three cars….MAD.

TA Race

  2. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired
    of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m
    looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the
    direction of a good platform.

    • I have a few sites. This is the only one using WordPress. all others have been designed by me using Dreamweaver. Thanks for asking.
