  1. Hi ember, can you check the results as the results posted by alexis had me 7th whereas you have me down as 18th Matt
  2. That's better, cheque is in the post. Thought my car had hit and gone over the cliff, but maybe it was just teasing you all!
  3. Thanks guys, 2nd by 0.5 second, not too shabby! Well done snurf, Cymru am byth
  4. A great race, I was at silver stone and enjoyed every minute even if it was blowing a gale. The spa round was nip and tuck as well. Audi and Porsche have the edge over Toyota but you never can discount them. Should be a great championship
  5. Great reporting ben, glad you enjoyed my Opel. I find it a very forgiving car to drive which allow you to push it and make pretty good times on all surfaces. In the slot rally UK it's been outclassed by the Teamslot alpine (the avant version is a tad overpowered) and scaleauto de tomaso pantera. The MsCs run in a 80s class so we don't have to compete with them, although the osc Peug and fly porsche are the ones to beat in that class. Lesson learnt for me - go with the excellent mjk tyres for these rally proxies! Matt
  6. I call it plain slacking! Blooming Ozzies, come over to Pom land and win our apprentice and then have some excuse of having to have booze and bbq at Christmas - just not on! Have a great Chrimbo. Matt
  7. My car and trophy arrived home today. Slight address error but my postman knows me so got it here safely. Many thanks Matt
  8. Very splendid trophies, thank you. Matt

    I will be back to defend pommy honour. I will retire the 2014 winner to my hall of fame and resurrect another car from the stable. I can't commit to holding a round as I will be writing a dissertation over the spring /summar of 2015, so I can't afford to spend a good 3 days running a round. Matt
  10. My narrow Opel has 3 year old nsr ultragrips on the back, other than that it is completely stock. I ran the car in the Slot Rally GB series 2 yrs ago, nice smooth and can cope with scenery bumping. I just cleaned and sent it off, did not clock the min rear diameter so my rears are a tad under sized. Tyre cleaning a must for mine, which should make it an enjoyable car to drive. Matt
  11. I am well chuffed, enormous thanks to the series organisers, all the round hosts and sponsors. The mjk tyres gave great grip and were really consistent. I used them also on my OSC Peugeot in the slot rally GB championship and they performed really well (4th in class over the year). The scorpius wireless system took a bit of getting used to but it functioned well and the ability to wander round with controller in hand adds a great dimension to racing. My citroen will have to be retired to my proxy hall of fame and a new car prepped for 2015. Thanks again. Matt
  12. Thanks guys, do love the Oz tracks, I am always impressed and envious. Matt
  13. My apologies guys, thought my car had hits it's peak and was going in to decline. Miveson, can you check Greece round 10 points. They were amended because of a dodgy way too fast time of mine, I ended up 7th with 15 points and Ember took the podium Matt
  14. Thanks for noticing and fixing it OTFS. Had the wheel come loose to cause that issue? Hope you enjoy running the rounds in Oz. Matt
  15. What's PayPal address for payment and postage adress and I'll get my entry on it's way
  16. If an entry space is available I will have one - be running a powerslot Opel in the classic class. Take on those pesky msc monsters. Matt
  17. Took me a while to find my car in the first two results, not used to looking below the podium! I think my time on stage three is too generous. My car wasn't the quickest and as many offs (0) as those nearest but I beat everyone by 10 secs. I have a feeling my time on stage 3 should be 10 secs slower which effects the overall results for the round. Can you double check alexis as I could not rob ember of a podium. Matt
  18. Monumental effort Alexis, you and your friends dedication to the cause is unprecedented and impressive. Hope you enjoyed it. Great photos as well. Matt
  19. Peter things I have done 1) taken unecessary weight out of the body shell, but within rules, e.g. light gubbins, any plastic protrusions 2) the motor is now in it's third year of this proxy, abviously just bedding in nicely 3) weight, not too much but enough to stabilise. I put weight in magnet holder, nice and low down. I think I added a tad just in front of the rear wheels to aide more grip, and then in front of the motor to stabilise. All within a tirangle of guide to rear wheels 4) glued everything in, motor, bushings (front and back) 5) glued and trued tyres down quite a bit, ensuring fronts give support but don't raise the guide out of the slot after soft but lasting braid used (SCX Pro i think) 6) body loose with no catching on chassis or screws thread Notihing special, but seems to have created a very consistnet, stable and fast car. Matt
  20. Superglue always, I tried the rubberised superglue and found that did not last, so back to the tried and tested runny stuff.
  21. I think that in the spirit of the proxy then the change is fine. I glued on one or two competitors wheels in my round as I am sure all hosts have done. Chassis change is in the same ilk. Matt
  22. Are you the one on top or bottom of the photo Alexis! I think my podium run will come to an end in Greece. My car is definetly best suited for routed tracks, I expect to see our European neighbours rise to the top, and maybe some of those under performing Ozzies. Hope it's not too hot for you a Alexis, our 3week summer is officially over just in time for my families annual pilgrimage to the Reading festival - some Royal Blood and Arctic Monkeys are good for the soul, especially when it's windy and rainy. Matt
  23. I like the colour pattern my car is producing, should be two greens next! IoM contingency putting in a strong round and series with 3 out of the top 5 - expecting a late surge from the Greek and Ozzie contenders in their forthcoming home rounds. Matt
