Tore: The argumentative bloke above and your pics have convinced me that the wheels will meet the criteria of being period.
Even though Stig could not manage to find any pics of a Porsche with dished Alfa wheels. He thinks they are Porsche 936 wheels with cooling holes :lol:

Hmm if you squint after being poked in the eye they might look right. :D

However, it's Phil's show, so what he says goes :lol:

Hope it goes as well down under :)

Looks the good Tore. If I can get some good odds I would put some money on this car for a podium finish.

Very nice Opel GT!

It's almost identical to the car I'm building for the Can-AM GTU class this year :)

Good chassis on that PowerSlot, I'm sure it will be a contender :)

Thanks for having the faith in it Mel, but I'm not so sure myself. It was a race against the clock to get it ready, so I'm not 100% happy with the weight tuning, it has a tendency to "step out" with the rear on the exit if the grip is a bit low. But the chassis and motor was recycled from the 911 in the SCX proxy last season, so it already knows your tracks down there :)

I think it will be the Healey again this year. Reballasted, NC2 swapped for an NC1 and now sporting a lightweight crew. Otherwise same wheels, tyres and gearing as last time. I have been playing around with a Ninco Porsche 356 as an alternative but am keen to see if I can get the Healey to perform better this time around.

Well... For what it's worth the little blue buzz box is on its way.

Posted Image

Motor - RX41B (standard)
Wheels - BWA BW32002-093
Tyres - MJK
Bearings - SCX Pro Brass Orbital (rear) - SCX Brass Standard (front)
Gears - Slot.it
Ratio - 10:28 (seemed like a good idea at the time)
Guide - SCX standard
Braid - SCX Pro
Total weight - 83g (ish)

It's a bit grubby from way too many laps around the track. And the third heaviest car in my collection after the Carrera R8 (au naturale) and Bullitt Mustang. HL always complains my cars are too twitchy, hopefully, this one isn't.

That is one nice car Embs.....

Time to add mine to the mix - just need to glue and true the tyres

(Had a shocker of a week doing my first gluing, tyres were all lumpy so off they came, then trying to sand down the wheel, I sanded too much, all was not lost as new wheels ordered and new tyres added)... Enough of the high drama I hear you say.... it'll be in the post early next week if I don't stuff up anything else on it between now and then. I've spent a fortune...

Motor | RX42B
Wheels| Slot.It SIPA17-PL
Tyres | NSR 5226 (Fronts) MJK 4219 (Rear)
Ratio | 9:28 Slot.It
Guide | SCX standard (ran out of time)
Weight|89.5g


I'll set the expectation right now, that if I finish in any place above <= 30th I'll be more than happy.

Rick ol' chap, mid field would be wonderful. But I'm being realistic when I say I don't think it likely. Unless of course a few people have strapped a brick to the roof of their car and fitted square wheels.
