Polestar Volvo wins the STCC

Congratulations to Polestar for winning the 2009 STCC drivers and team chamionship. The normal Volvo C30 for sale at Volvo dealers might not be a hit but the Polestar built C30 s2000 car is massively impressive when studying the details of that car. The 5 cylinder engine sound is great. And it is a full inhouse project by Polestar in Sweden.

With the championship decided in the second race of the double header at Mantorp, the final race of the season, this is a race that will be remebered for a long time.

RC Outdoor 2009 season summary

During the 2009 outdoor season we did quite a lot of testing and a lot of new parts were tried on the 416. Owerall the car worked wery well. I found a good base setup. Often only minor changes was needed to adjust the balance of the car. The experimental upper chassis did a small change to the car but no improvement in laptimes.

ETS Andernach 2009

The ETS finale in Andernach Germany was the highlight of the season. Arriving well prepared with quite a lot of testing and a well prepared car hoping for an improvement of the result from last year. The car worked very well from the beginning and did not have any big disadvantage in the power department this year. But in the end the result was very similiar to last year when comparing the gap to the TQ result. A little bit disapointing as the car was good and I was driving better than in any other race in 2009, but the level of the drivers in this race was very high. But the most important thing is that the ETS races are great fun, RC racing cant be much better than this.

There are many areas of  improvement for the outdoor racing season 2010. Improving the handling characteristics of the chassis with LIPO batteries, need to put some focus on the braking  that is becomming more and more important. And there is some new suspension under work as well plus the 416 X that soon will be out.
