    Slots of course, "retired" squash fanatic, armchair motor racing devotee. I follow most oval ball games.
    Nothing better than a gang of friends on the patio, BBQ stacked with fresh seafood and other tasties, and a glass of good vino.

  1. Pat - that outfit ! Surprised anyone could get close
  2. Sadly, despite my deep love and respect for the greatest model Chevy ever made… in the best year last century ….. I am out. see y’all in 2023
  3. Thanks Mac for the poster again Brilliant racing. For the newest members L8n, Gary and Phillip, their first experience of the full blown teams madness. We used to have 3 man teams for these events. But despite Peter being away on RC duties, Marty NOT being ready, and Ryan lost on honeymoon, we had 4 man teams. A short outtake* *no slot addicts were harmed in the making of this movie
  4. Do you want me to send the yellow terror across tomorrow ?
  5. What impresses me most, is not the large track, it is the resurfacing of the miraculous pooch. Gidday Dave, good to see you about.
  6. Pat did a test drive of the Ninco Porsches that Bingo and I have built. Best lap times were just 0.02 different, (that is 0.02 not 0.2) and averages were just about as close. - Half a poofteenth of nothing variation
  7. Thirteen on the grid last night, plus pizza king JK providing culinary support; and a welcome back to The Handler… we had a chance to hold him accountable for the reptilian antics. Needless to say, he denies all responsibility. Crockett still “has it”, taking out Scalex F1. We lost connection near the end of Australian Touring Cars, so we can forever deny that Phillip was on the cusp of seeing his name on top of the gloat podium for the first time. Worse for me, I also found myself struggling to keep up with L8n. So much for “fresh meat” Smithy was flying all evening, and took out GT3 Pat pointed out that one of the most entertaining items was the synchronised head bobbing, so I included a little for your viewing amusement
  8. Thanks for organising Mac. I’m a starter
  9. Looks like we are back at Oakland Raceway. Week 4 1 Australian Touring Cars 2 Scalextric F1 3 GT3 See you Thursday from 5:30
  10. Paul, I am also away this week - I think you are due to host? I will be back next week in time to host, Ross and Graeme - for when you do need it. This is the standard Trackmate board. Everything else we do locally, and I have the software on stick, for when you want another module https://trackmateracing.com/shop/en/lap-counter-parts/278-1252-interface-only.html#/106-power_adapter-none/134-usb_cable_type_ab-none I have one spare promised to Pat, but we should buy at least a couple sometime, so I keep a spare around….
  11. Four things that can help - and assuming you are already using the narrowest rims at 8mm - single sided bushes or oilites - so nothing is sticking out beyond the plastic bush mount of the chassis, (or grind away that outside edge) - On occasion I have shaved/ground off part of the boss of the wheel, so the grub screw is effectively closer to the edge - a bit of dremel work on the inside of the wheel arch to thin them - trim the whole outside of the tyre so it is flush with the outside edge of the wheel, then re-contour a “round” on the outside edge Between the four, I have gained about 3mm per side breathing room when needed
  12. Ross also has one of the Fly brand Ferrari 250 GTO, with the nasty engine in front problem. Taking a not-too-serious look at the rules… Classic Sports pre '65 - narrow bodies. Motor: Open -16k maximum Wheels: Open Tyres: Open Gears: Open Axles: Open Body: Stock but can be lowered on chassis. Chassis: Essentially stock when viewed from underneath. HRS chassis and donor chassis allowed Interior: Stock when viewed from above but base can be ground to reduce height. Remarks: Front axle height can be set or tubed. Motor can be braced to rear axle bushes. It’s pretty loose, “it’s rules Jim, but not as we know them”. Sorry…. my Star Trek gene resurfaced… So all the reptilian members need to do is have those wheels sawn off so they sit inside the wheel arches, and the bun sawn off so it fits above the ears, and all will be good. FWIW, My order with the SRP 16k S-Can motors included, will be here in a couple of weeks. I bought them partly to ensure motors for this class for everyone. I have spares, I think Mac has spares, and I have set 3? aside for Pat. Its a pretty good looking car Michael….
