  1. HI Keith The Plafit Pointer is a Japanese 13D type motor similar to the SRP 13D motors that also come in a variety of rev ranges & Pendles stock them. I've been using them in this proxy & others for the last couple of years & find them very reliable.I just sent off my Slot it Group C LANCIA entry to Canada for the Worlds with a Pointer as the power supply. Last years entry was my MOMO Porsche with a Pointer which was a midfielder but I think my main trouble was gearing & trying to get the tyres to grip.I used the Porsche as my test mule with revised gearing & after many hours my of testing with a Preditor motor in the LANCIA I gave up & put a new Pointer in & picked up .2 of a second & was whisper quiet. I don't think it will be much better in that kind of company but at least it looks to be better than last years car, I hope. Both cars are beautifull to drive with the MOMO using a Plafit chassis & the LANCIA using my new Carbon suspension chassis the same as my Megane in this proxy. You can get them online at ACE Hobbies in Brisbane for $10 AU. Cheers Jimmy
  2. Hi Paul Any chance the Plafit Pointer 21.5 k motor could be added to the motor list. I've used these motors for years & find them very consistent & reliable, the best part they are only $10, also they are sealed & can't be opened & tampered with which stops people trying to tweak a bit more speed. They are a little bit heavier than the S can motors but nothing outrageous, but you guys like a lot of weight at the backend so might save you some lead ballast. Cheers Jimmy
  3. Hi Paul A big thankyou to you & your helpers for another well run proxy in very difficult times. Loved all the vids & feed back to help me understand what was going on with all the cars on the many different circuits. Looking forward to seeing my car & trying to work out why it dropped off in the last half of this Proxy as it did last year,probably ran out of tyres again. On returning my car just throw it in STICKS box & he will drop it off to me next time he comes down the mountain to get cheap diesel for his truck. Cheers Jimmy see you next year.
  4. Thanks for another quality presentation Paul with Alvaro & Grahame in support with the driving,well done. Love the feed back & vids,lets me know my baby is being well looked after. Happy with my cars speed & grip but it seems everyone else just got a little bit better this round than last time at Alvaro's On to the next round,good luck all. Cheers Jimmy
  5. I'm happy for the cars to stay & finish this Proxy,& I don't care how long it takes.Covid has turned the world as we knew it upside down.I'm currently down with the dreaded desease but will be clear to unisolate on Saturday. I can't imagine how hard it is for Paul to organize each round,but the main thing is to keep everyone safe & wake up above ground each day Cheers Jimmy
  6. Thanks Peter for providing your great little track for Rd 6 & a big thanks to Paul & crew for great driving & video. Congrats to podium with some very quick cars just ever so slightly off to pace but all could change next round with a field this close. Cheers Jimmy
  7. Thanks Paul,Matt & crew for running this round,congrats to the podium. Great vids Paul really shows everyones car in action,curious about the windex spray bottle on the track,was that to clean the drivers glasses & the computer screen Cheers Jimmy
  8. Thanks Paul & helpers for putting on the round 4.Special thanks to Alistair for providing the track. Looks like Rd 3 wasn't a fluke & my Megane is showing some consistant form,fingers crossed it continues. Cheers Jimmy
  9. Thanks for the run Paul & helpers Congrats to Lancelot & Dave P on their well earned podiums & a fine 5th to Sticks in a very good car that is getting better all the time. Nice to see the comparison to last years car so all my retuning is going in the right direction,new lighter trick chassis,New set of MJK's & 1 tooth off the pinion. Don't rush the next round Paul,let me celebrate for few more days,I don't get to do it that much but win loose or draw I'm going to have a nice glass of Red tonight Cheers Jimmy
  10. As I grow older my eyes are getting worse I use a trick that a mate used at a National event to check the number of teeth,he takes a picture with his mobile phone & blows it up.Too easy Cheers Jimmy
  11. Well said Paul,I think some people are in Proxy racing for different reasons to me.I personally love building slot cars & it's a bonus if a group of guys want to go to the trouble of racing them on 10 different tracks ,doing video's & reporting on how each car goes just shows their passion for the hobby. My cars are very different to the competition & is a challenge to compete with them,some of my best slot races have been sitting in front of my computer watching a stranger drive one of my cars & if they give my car a compliment then I'm a winner. Keep up the good work Paul,really appreciate all the time & effort you put in to this Proxy. PS I'm a bit worried about Sticksy,I think the air might be a bit thin up on his mountain retreatDo offs get factored in to the Einstein equation Cheers Jimmy
  12. Thanks for the run guys,really enjoyed the Vid & comments from Andrew & Paul on everyone's cars performance. Now the hard part trying to find more speed,is it motor or gearing or both?
  13. Thanks for that Gary,great era in Aussie motorsport & brought back some very good memories. As a young teenager growing up in the '60's my dad used to take the family to a lot of motor race events. I remember sitting in the back seat of my dad's Austin A60,stopped in traffic on the Hume Highway queing up to get in to Warwick Farm when a flat bed truck was creeping past in the Right lane with Geoghegans Stang on the back Hot day window down so I did what any teenager would do,reached out and touched the Left rear tyre. Next time I seen it was an hour later coming across the Causway heading down Hume straight towards Creek corner,full song Although I was a tragic Holden man I've always had a love of the mighty Stangs & always will Cheers Jimmy
  14. No thats not a Plafit upgrade,my scratch build from a sheet of 1mm Carbon fibre,a lot of trial & error. I've got the same Chassis motor combo in my Bob Jane Camaro that raced yesterday in a Trans-Am Proxy in North Caroliner & had some very positive feed back from the drivers on the Facebook vid. Last years Megane chassis was all PLafit but I decided to loose some weight as last years tyres gave up with 2 rounds to go. Cheers Jimmy
