  1. Well done Keith and Charles as well as the other podiums. I dont own any rally cars might have to get involved next time round Big Mick
  2. Congrats to my mate sdeamon a count back I think, you can do your own tyres next year LOL Well done to all involved my first proxy series was a top experience and thanks to everyone who entered Big Mick
  3. Hi Keith I can guarantee you at both FPR and Spitfire tyre treatments are a death sentence infringement . Well a dont come back sort of thing anyway. I do know Allans track was erected the week of the round at Spitfire and I have seen her with better grip in the past. Mind you in saying that some cars had excellent grip that day some were awful. Interestingly Mondeo41s car had for me on Red anyway a big grip improvement over the last round mine went off a bit IMHO same tyres? Yep go figure!! Mind you I do know I have some cars that with the same setup preform way better at Spitfire than they do at FPR and vice versa so I guess there is something in it. That sort of problem has me laying awake at night staring at the roof and make theories and tests to try and work it out. When I started slot racing I had hair!! Regards Big Mick
  4. By the way. A warm day in Victoria in July? Yeah right! ​Wishful thinking
  5. Don't know the track but I can see a pattern from the short tight tracks to the longer tracks with the open corners in the performance of some cars mine especially. There would be a "magic set up" to work well across all of the regular tracks I think Slo1quick had it last year cant wait to start the brainstorming on that question when the cars come home LOL Maybe I will know if a tree falls in the forest dose it make a sound too Best of luck at the Mountain to all Regards Big Mick
  6. It was a strange day for racing that is for sure. Some cars felt way better than they did the week before at FPR some way worse Cars I felt fell of a cliff after traveling from Lockleys to Semaphore Park Brumos 22 Lenny Broke 4 Paul slots BigMick2 to a lesser degree just felt sluggish to me And If I did not know better I would say the John Batich car 88 had completely different tyres was way lose in most corners after being so direct the week before and the series looking at results Cars that seemed to get a new level of grip at Spitfire Mondeo41 was the best car on track on red lane IMHO PDaniels And Peter Gunn had much better handling on the "sweeper" type corners so prevalent at Spitfire more than at FPR Confused me I am still scratching my head, As for my own car this was the track I expected it to be a world beater at with the long legs but struggled to get that power down for me despite a quite good result, I have never subscribed to that it is cold and raining thing affecting slot cars before but now Hope it is a nice warm day at Masonite Mountain Regards Big Mick
  7. Pissing down today in Adelaide will need the wet weather tyres on for the Tasman Big Mick
  8. Cheers Allan good luck to all tomorrow Big Mick
  9. We will have a minute silence for the Torana that is no longer in the back corner before the flag drops Big Mick
  10. Thanks to all for another fun day of Tasman madness at FPR Agreeing with other round comments these are the best group of cars yet. It sure was cold in Adelaide yesterday so the times might not have been as good as they could of been. Congrats to Sedeamon and our friend from the USA on their podiums. That Ferrari was a hoot to drive and the stand out car for me on the very tight blue lane. Experienced a few issues with some of the cars and will PM the owners with my thoughts Looking forward to next round at Lenny Brokes Spitfire Raceway and the endless banter and good spread that always follows a day at Semaphore Park. Regards Big Mick
  11. Yep got my controller from them Keith great place to do business Regards Big Mick PS good luck with the Tasman tomorrow
  12. Terry "The Concours need only to be judged at the beginning of the series, thus ensuring the cars are at their best, whatever points are awarded to your car would be added to the point score at the completion of the series, Be interesting to hear what others may be thinking" Plafit have been doing that for a long time with the classic class, points system for detail then lap score for a combined total seems to work for them if the dreaded super tuners want their "kudos" they will need to add such things going forwards to be competitive Regards Big Mick
  13. I have to give you your backside back Allan I dont want it But thank you for soldering my chassis on your Jig. Will have to get one of those before it becomes too much of an issue Regards Big Mick
  14. All good Terry that is the problem with my car it is a handful fast sure but fast upside down in the corners to if you blink LOL hope to flatten that out for next year. Was hoping for a good run to show that the SRP still had a place in the series. I was involved heavily with the testing done here in Adelaide on the three motors and found next to nothing in performance variation. Still think its part of the overall package that makes a good lap time (motor/tyre and of course flat, square and true Chassis) after that its in the hands of the proxy drivers. That is very hard for a control freak like me to do !!!!! Regards Mick
  15. "I think I'll need to get me one of those brokespeed things for next year" Allan I have one I could sell you at a mark up of course ​Can only say am Thrilled to get a round win in my first Proxy thanks to all involved, it was JBs first bad round sort of I am sure No88 will be back with avengence at Spitfire and I know his cars love FPR Looking forward to the next round ( I get to have the drive fun this time LOL) although I have found watching this unfold more stressful than being a driver in the SA rounds last two years. Hope for the SRP brigade still CharlesX Regards Big Mick
