  1. #10 Cooper T79 is ready to go Express Post from the Gold Coast tomorrow. Looking at the specs of the other cars, I think it will be way under-geared....but, at least, it should have a bit of acceleration and ok brakes. It'll just get left in the dust on most straights. So be it. Specs: Body brand: Tassie Resins Chassis brand: Peter G Motor brand: Tassie 1790 Guide brand: TSRF (with Al Penrose-spec modification) Pinion brand: Peter G imports Crown wheel brand:SlotIt Gear ratio: 7/24 Rear tyre brand: Paul Gage Rear wheel brand: BWA Front wheel brand: BWA Haven't figured out how to add a photo. Now I just need to find the address for posting........ Cheers, Peter
  2. Hi Alan, No worries. I’m not here to incite controversy. By the way, no need to apologise for not replying. You had replied pretty much straight away by message. Maybe sometime we could do a series encompassing the pre-Tasman summer series. It would have to be Formula LIBRE though. Free driveline but period-correct tire sizes. It’s not a great benefit to have a super powerful motor if you can’t get the power to the track. That’s what made those cars so great to watch. Oversteer and 4-wheel drifts (way before some Japanese adolescents began drifting.) I would probably run an Archie Scott Brown Lister Jag! Or a 250F. There really were some beautiful cars running around in the late ‘50s cheers, Peter
  3. Hi Phil and Alan, The T51 I am planning to model is actually a 2.89-litre Scuderia Centro Sud car which was bought and raced by Johnny Mansel in the NZ races of 1962 until his fatal crash at Dunedin. So it is pushing the definitions a bit too much I think. The photo in my avatar shows the car just before that crash. I'm going to go with the T79 #10 from Longford (with the 13" wheels). cheers, Peter
  4. Can I get # 10 please? Or (2nd question) is any T51 Cooper eligible? I see that a T51-Climax was entered in both '64 and '65. I might like to enter the T51 shown in my avatar (it's a T51-Maserati). In that case I would ask for # 17. Cheers, Peter
  5. That's awesome Phil. Thanks
  6. Yes, I am. I’ve ordered a body from Mr Kalbfell and plan to buy one of the motors which he is reserving for entrants. I’m hoping that he will give me a gearing recommendation for that motor. I just hope I can score an entry!
  7. Hi John, So what is a good gearing for 030 motors? I recently bought a few in a batch of interesting motors from an eBay seller in ShenZhen so I’m curious how I should gear them.
  8. Hi Phil, You have some great cars there. All cast by you. Are they available through Tassie Resins? I don't see them on your website. Cheers, Peter
