  1. Hey men, Could I get a clarification on rules for the up coming V8 ute series please? Is it the same weights min, spur widths, wheel diameters min and max, ground clearance as the V8 Supercar series or are there ant changes? Cheers Jason
  2. Enjoy the high seas Pagey. Looking forward to running one of the best cars I've ever had the pleasure of driving again. Slotworx is an absolute joy to run, should be another great enduro. Cheers Jason
  3. All good Jan, just curious what the bodies look like. I have been following the European guys running GFK bodies and I can't fathom paying hundreds of dollars for a car body. So to hear Andrew has taken the time to create these bodies is fantastic news. Looks great Warrick. I'm a massive Corvette fanboy so the C7 will be high on the list of first bodies to purchase. Cheers
  4. A fantastic event to be a part of. Huge thanks and congrats to the 2 Canberra teams, as well as the Sydney slot shop who raced extremely well on a track that can be demanding and tricky at times. I had an absolute blast racing the best car I have ever driven. Cam built a very special car, handling and speed was something I never experienced before in a car. Thanks to Jim and Cam for asking me to join their team, like I said it was a very enjoyable race and to come away with the win was fantastic. Thanks to Brooksy for taking the time to organize, promote and run the event. To all the teams, great racing and some very fast drivers. Hard luck to the Torro Rosso boys on a chunky wheel early in the event. Thanks for the reminder to breath Pagey. Big shout out to Steve for pulling on the Holden shirt, must have been very tough to wear it. Looking forward to the next event, possibly in the nations capital. Cheers Jason
  5. Looking forward to the racing and laughs. Jim and Cam have decided to handicap their efforts with a questionable 3rd driver lol.
  6. Congrats Glenn on taking out the 2016 championship, and to Chris and Brooksy for the podium finish. Well done Brooksy on all the reports and effort put in to the race coordinating, Charlie Whiting would be impressed.
  7. Jo Sonja and Matisse are sold at Riot art shops, and all major art supply stores.
  8. Awesome class of racing, and the great paint jobs ad to the enjoyment. The HRT commodore is Charles i believe Jimmy. Cheers Jason
  9. AFL Grand Final weekend.....better book accommodation early Jason
  10. Try mobile raceways in Dandenong http://www.mrslotcar.com/category141_1.htm Cheers Jason
  11. That is an amazing build FOLA. I have been stalking your photobucket pictures and there are some of the most fantastic model builds i have ever seen. Do you make car bodies to order FOLA or have a store site? Cheers Jason
  12. Jan, That McLaren looks the bees knees! Question - what do you use to re-enforce a GFK body? Cheers Jason
  13. Steve the super marshall strikes again!
  14. Werner, Any idea on driver station controller hook ups for this years track? Jason
  15. I can only echo what Jim has mentioned about the 1/32 class. They are an absolute blast to race with the extra speed thru the corners. After initially trying to build one of the cars 3 years ago, not successfully , It was time to try again with the class coming to Thursday nights. After setting the chassis up and buying a scaleauto BMW Z4, it was time to get some great advice from Cam, Jim and Chris. My previous corvette couldn't complete 2 laps without a de-slot, so to be able to crack 5.8 seconds and not de-slot once, I am stoked. Great turn out Thursday night as well, with 12 racers and 3 or 4 of the regulars away. Cheers Jason
  16. What is series one for Thursdays Jimmy?
  17. When I built this car 2 years ago it was my first crack at a MJK dog bone chassis. They are the Xtreme trax 1/24 house class, and by no means any easy car to build. The slightest imperfection and you can easily be 8/10th of a second off the pace. Mounting body is a bit of a dark art, like most slot cars it seems, but perseverance is a key ingredient. And of course the body style is all important with older thunderbird and Pontiac seeming to be the way to go. Jim and Cam have built some weapons of late, I'm sure you'd agree Shane, and even the new surface has added speed to all the cars. The body in pic hadn't been mounted at the time Charles, it was more of a look at my car pic. I love my NASCAR racing and have quiet a few models that I have painted, most of which have never seen a chassis. Should be interesting to see these cars at MCN next June in Dapto, carnage is on the cards from plenty of door rubbin! Cheers Jason
  18. Well just to add my thanks to all who helped run and organize this years APC. As this was my first APC I had a great weekend learning more about plafit racing, but also meeting some fantastic men. Massive shout out to my bud Chris who built a fantastic group c Sauber, which we ran to second in the class. Thanks to Werner for bringing the Australian Plafit Championship to Dapto, and running a fantastic class of racing. Alec and Xtreme trax for your hospitality and track for the week. Jim Patto for all your dedication, time and effort in re surfacing the track and co-ordinating the event. Garry Johnson who was the grand marshal, ran a great program whilst also providing plenty of laughs with his in race commentary. Also massive thanks to all who came along to this years racing, like I mentioned it was a pleasure to meet you all. Congratulations to all the winners. Plafit really is a fantastic class to race in with the diverse classes and level playing field to compete in. I am looking forward to next years event in Brisbane and hopefully I will have a handle on how to set up a better car than I do right now. Can only help that so many locals are of such a high standard. Cheers Jason Bell
  19. Don't know about the whole set, but the more I buy the better chance I have of setting up a quick one. Ferrari 458 is coming soon Jimmy, then the collection may be complete
  20. Werner, When mounting rear wings on GT and Group C cars, can foam be used as the uprights or is it only rubber that can be used? Cheers Jerimiah83
  21. Jimmie, You don't have to worry, it is fantastic.....and because it has no axle height blocks with spacers and shims, it is very easy to adjust.....which is exactly what you want for beginners etc..... But still, I can't see myself support a fixed chassis class.....have had enough of that..... Cheers, Jan So does that mean you won't be campaigning the Scaleauto class any more Jan? If the club I race at sets up some rules to race within, including chassis guide lines, I have an opportunity to go racing. It may take me six months to have a car that is competitive, but at least I will have a chance to enjoy the class. However if it is a free for all, most $$$$ wins then enjoyment factor will not be there, and dare I say, I will not race at my club event. paulthetexan has nailed it for me = enjoying racing with the fellow racers is what it is about. The fast cars and competition will come with time, help from the super powers of your club and practice. Only my 2 cents from a relative newcomer Jerimiah83
