  1. Thank you Mark, Mac and Race Catering. An outstanding event, I should be able to get back down to my pre-event weight in 10 days or so.
  2. I’m unlikely to be back from lunch in Taupo so best to mark me as not available this week .
  3. I can do Bahia Vista this week if it works for peeps. Week 3 1 Aussie V8 2 Fly Classics 3 LMP Next week is dodgy for me, being pre-Easter, people heading off?? and I have lunch scheduled in Taupo which could run long.
  4. Weather on Waiheke is mint. We are just off the ferry and having lunch before heading home.
  5. I had better stop building furniture for the house and get back to my DTM build.
  6. I don’t know where but I am out this week, a concert/dance event apparently. I will be potentially be about a little less this year due to having chauffeur duties, while Bronwen is not able to drive.
  7. My legends prep. I did not remove the tyres from the wheels, or the wheels from the axles. Just popped out axles and glue and true. Superglue on fronts. I lowered the chassis, in hindsight this probably was not necessary, all bushes JB welded in place. I forgot the side play in the front axle on 2 of the cars, so they still have some side to side play. Guides were too sloppy for my liking so I replaced them with scale auto ones I had on hand. Replaced motor wires, glued motors in place. Added a chunk of church roof in the middle, to approx 75 gms running weight. 2 of the house class cars got superglue on the spur gear in the build, as they were loose, I fear the spur and wheel may be superglued together. the 3rd car felt ok so it was not glued but was spinning on the night!! I did not add a guide adapter, brain fade, I will add them. The cars come with 12 tooth pinion and a 13 tooth for high speed tracks. I will compromise by replacing the spurs with 32 teeth, down from 33 teeth. this is about equivalent to a 12.5 tooth pinion? I am ok with the plastic pinion gear. They feel subtly different, easier to drive, but that my be just because I am playing alone when the cars always go better.
  8. All good, mine will be available from time to time for a change. When I get some time I have other potential odd ball house class cars. Thanks for the comments about the track, I am pleased with how it has changed for the better, and of course I liked it before.
  9. I have replaced the gear on my red car that failed. I guess i need to visit the the local Slot.it pusher to update the axle/spur on the other two, especially as the I took the opportunity to change the ratio.
  10. Or if I prep another car we can swap out Australian Touring Cars for Pioneer legends as a house class.
  11. ..................... Week 5 1 Australian Touring Cars 2 Scalextric F1 3 GT3
