  2. The original "Spirit of the rule" was that you shouldn't see any of the "chassis" when looking from above. What we meant by that was the things that you should not have seen when looking from above were, the guide, the chassis rails, the motor and the crown (we did make an allowance for cars with the short rear). Suspension items etc. were not included. We also encouraged effort in the driver/cockpit area so that the chassis and motor was not visible through the cockpit. We always hoped to encourage participation by keeping it simple and not discourage people with "rivet counting".
  3. Hi Alan, I can muster up another 3 entrants if that's ok? I'd like to enter a second car and I can get Bunyip and Sainter to each enter a car. Numbers 41 Bunyip. 56 Stubbo 2 66 Sainter If others want to enter we are ok to make way for them. Let me know if it is all OK. Cheers Alan
  4. Hi Lenny, Stubbo will enter a car. #2 please
  5. Hi Munter, Count me in for this. XE or XD I'll have either or both.

    Tasman Cup

    Good morning everyone. Sometimes life gets in the way of slot cars and right at this point in time that has happened to me. The next twelve months or so are filled with a lot of uncertainty and consequently I don't think I can commit to running the next Tasman series. With that in mind I have contacted the other original Tasmanites and I am very happy to say that Alan O'Dea or Lenny Broke to most of you has agreed to take over the running of the series. Alan is one of the Pioneers of proxy racing world wide and I know the Tasman is in great hands. I wish Alan well and hope that the support from Auslot members continues and the next series is best yet. Cheers. Alan

    John was a great supporter and host of our Tasman Cup series and a great man in slot cars in general. His loss is a loss for us all. Rest in Peace John.
  9. Our Tasman Cup proxy race has been a very popular series and from my point of view a series that has been a pleasure and a privilege to look after. That has been due almost entirely to our dedicated group of hosts who have, for year after year, stepped up and made a significant contribution to the running of the series and have made life easy for myself and all the competitors and entrants. Over the last couple of years the numbers have dropped a little and some of us have been having ongoing discussions about ways that we may be able to revamp or rejuvenate the series. 2019 however has been a particularly difficult year for a number of those involved. Particularly with the sudden passing of Bick Mick shortly after the series end. 2019 has also seen a number of our core group of Tasman stalwarts silently carrying the burden of their own personal issues and battles. Consequently, after having had several discussions and communications with a number of people I have decided that it may be in the best interest of all those concerned to pause the Tasman Cup for 2020 and kick it off again in 2021. Yes this may disappoint some but I have thought long and hard about it and I feel that it is the right thing to do. (It can also give us a chance to consider ways to improve or revamp the series. I will start another thread for that discussion) So for now I want to thank everyone for being part of the Tasman Cup. It isn’t the end but the start of a new beginning. And of course to those very special people, friends and mates who have become such an integral part of the Tasman I want to wish all you all the very best for 2020 and all strength to you.
  10. Thanks Phil. According to the tracking only Terry's car is yet to be delivered.. For the internationals the others have left Oz. Brumos' car has already arrived in Chicago.
  11. All the cars have been posted. Sorry for the delay, I was out of action for a few days. The Adelaide cars have all been sent to John Smedley. I will send you the tracking numbers by PM. Please let me know when they arrive.
  12. Very sad news. My condolences to his family and friends.
  13. I should have said. Please post any details here or pm via Auslot.
  14. I have the cars back from Manimmal and over the course of the next week will start packing and sending. I'll let you know which packages have been sent and the dates etc. Can you please advise when they are received. Can you also let me know if there are any special instructions or places or people where I can send multiple cars.
