Jacques Libar / Team Magic E4RS III Plus wins Luxembourg Nationals Round 1 at LMCC Luxembourg

Here, the original report of Jacques Libar:

We had our first national championship round at my local club in Luxembourg, the LMCC.

On Saturday was perfect weather, sunshine with 22 degrees and a perfect track. My team mate Mathieu Picaudé and me had some nice practice. After different set-up changes and tests my car feels quite good. The set-up tips of Patrick Gassauer in Italy on the ETS helped a lot. I managed to made a personal new Lap record with 20,2″. The car of Mathieu got also better and better and he made a best lap of 20,4″.

On Sunday the weather forecast was really bad but everybody hoped that the weather god will be on our side. Meanwhile the first qualification started and the car felt very good. Only 0,1″s slower on my fastest lap then yesterday. I TQ, Second was Mathieu and one more Team Magic driver Jérémy Clavey in Top 10. The second qualification was a wet run so we started and then it started to rain, so everybody stopped during the rain. The third qualification round was dry again. I started with the same set-up and managed to make a better run then the first one. With a 5 second lead I had the Pole Position, followed by Mathieu and on third my brother Laurent. Jérémy got P5. So all Team Magic drivers in the A-Main.

The finals were wet again. In the first final I lost my TQ spot against my brother but with clean driving I could pass again and won the final. During the rain Mathieu decided to not run this final, Jérémy tried to prepare his car for rain but he managed only to made one lap. Second final, same as first wet again. I tried something different on my car and could stay this time 5 minutes in front. Followed by Jérémy on P6 and Mathieu on P7. Third final I switched from rain tyres to normal tyres again, this was a bad choice. So this time I made a drift challenge and ended on P6, in front of me on P5 Jérémy and P7 for Mathieu.

The end result was so: Me on 1st place, Jérémy on P6 and Mathieu on P7.

Rob Janssen / Team Magic E4RS III Plus finished on second place at Dutch Nationals round 2 !

Team Magic driver Rob Janssen participated to the second round of Dutch Nationals. He obtained the pole position and finished on final second place.

Original report from Rob Janssen:

For round 2 of our Nationals we went to the very small track of HFCC. Well knowns as a difficult circuit with a few fast local drivers. So i prepared for a challenging weekend ! As weather forecasts were not very good I prepared both my cars, one for the rain and one for dry.

On Saturday the weather was ok, so it was possible to make a few laps on a dry track. The car felt ok and balance seems to be good but the overall grip on the car was not that good. Lot of local drivers were a lot faster. When switching to a different set of tires I noticed it was a lot better but not there yet. I tried a lot such as, different shock oils, diff oils, front diff & spool, different roll centres, other tire additive, etc. I think almost everything ! At the end of the day the gap to the local drivers was a little less.

On Sunday I arrived on a wet track and pulled out my rain car. It worked really well so I was able to do a clean TQ run in the wet. Unfortunately when the track became more dry I noticed it would be hard to defend my first position.

Final 1 was half wet / half dry and therefore very hard to drive. I lost my first position in the long oval corner at the end of the straight by going to wide almost in the grass. When entering the dry zone the car took grip to the inside of the corner and I hit someone which costed me some more time. I was able to finish in second place.

Final 2 was 90% dry. But it became a difficult and at the same time terrible run as local ace Robert Krens was faster then me and came close to me very fast. I defended my place as much as possible by keeping my lines, despite that it resulted in being hit from behind like 8 or 9 times by him. This costed so much time that we were passed by another driver and at the end I came in third behind Robert in second. As far as I can think back for me it was the most terrible final ever.

Just 5 minutes before final 3 it started raining again so everybody last minute changed to rain cars and tires. I also did that but for this final it for sure was Sybrand de Boer who was the most fast car. I lost some time by drifting and sliding to much and he passed by and took the lead to the end. I came in second.

At the end of the day I was able to climb the podium for second. For sure I’m happy with the weekend as i get to know more about the car and I was able to make some good points for the Nationals Series. I’m still the leader in the competition and made the gap to nr. 2 slightly bigger. The next round is in Deventer, a track I really like and normally I do well there 😉 !

TRIPLE-WIN for Team Magic E4RS III Plus at Round 2 of Apeldoorn Club Championship

Another frantastic race result at Apeldoorn, during the second round of AMCA club championship, for the Team Magic E4 RS III Plus.

TRIPLE-WIN for Team Magic E4RS III Plus at Round 2 of Apeldoorn Club Championship

Three TM cars at the start, three TM cars on the top of qualifications, and the all three on the podium ! It’s not possible to make it better, congratulation to the drivers !

TRIPLE-WIN for Team Magic E4RS III Plus at Round 2 of Apeldoorn Club Championship

Original Report from Rob Janssen:

We had our second clubrace at my local club in Apeldoorn, the Amca.

The day before; me, Richard Arts & Ronald Arts all three had time to go to the track for some test runs. Ronald again used my second car. With 3 of the same cars running we had the chance to test a lot. After a few runs I was able to do faster laps then I did in race 1 at the begin of the season so very happy with that ! Main thing that worked very well was using a gear diff in front. Also putting the rear arms a little more forward (as you told me to try) worked very well to ease the car a little more compared to race 1. At the end of the day we all three were very happy with our cars ! Ronald ended up same set-up as me, Richard a little different.

On Saturday (race day) I started to do some practise runs and run 1 felt from begin really good, same as the day before so that made me very confident for the race in the afternoon and evening. I tried a few more things, like different springs, but came back to were I started. The only 2 adjustments I felt was worth keeping was a little less rear toe-in for some more corner speed and a little thicker rear diff (3k instead of 1k). I felt the temperature was to high for such thin oil. 

Q1 was a very nice start for me and both other TM drivers. We made a clean top 3 with our 3 cars. Only three doing laps under 18sec. with me doing a 17.7 and the other 2 guys a 17.9. We were able to improve our times a little in Q2 and Q3 and ended up with 3 TM cars on the first 3 spots on the grid for the finals. Really happy with that ! Same story for the finals, all three finals we filled the top 3 spots from begin to end.

TRIPLE-WIN for Team Magic E4RS III Plus at Round 2 of Apeldoorn Club Championship

Original Report From Richard Arts:

Tested a couple of options improving the setup, mainly to reduce tire wear. Car felt great overall. Tried also a diff in the front, but this did not feel much better with my setup. Rob’s setup could benefit more with a front diff. Rob and Ronald were running the same setup, so I let Ronald use my front diff.

I managed to set fasted laptime in training. But breaking in my set of race tires, they didn’t feel as good, but still OK.

Quali’s went really well, was able to follow Rob more closely than previous races. Also putting down a 24 lap run. Car was doing what I wanted, so was able to test tire additives. Mix of “special” and “ultra” working great with warmer track conditions.

Starting from 2nd spot, good traction from the line. No trouble in the first corners meant I could follow Rob building a small gap to the rest of the field. Overall A-main was pretty close in laptimes , so great racing to see for the spectators.

Great race day, and really happy with the car. Still not done with finetuning, but already really happy.

NEW Team Magic E4RS III Plus aluminium Fan Mounts

Team Magic and Team Magic Europe are proud to introduce the all new E4RS III Plus aluminium fan mounts, for standard 25mm, 30mm and 40mm wide fans.

507343 and 507343L

Motor temperature is something which is very important. Many drivers are using fans to prevent overeating of their motor. A good fixation is important, to avoid any risk to loose the fan during the runs, and to perfectly mount the standard 25mm, 30mm and 40mm fans, we decided to design these two special aluminium fan mounts, using existing holes of the E4RS III and E4RS III Plus chassis.
