Howdy all. Long time no talk. Just a few pictures taken today while we get ready for the result (sorry, not much variety. Was doing product shots while the rally was being run):

You probably aren't going to believe me, but this was an action shot.....

Triggy has dots under his name - he's posting the results...... ohhh ahhhh.

Interesting description from page 1 for car #27 - light and flighty... rather appropriate picture really.

Great pics Hoffy....

There were a heap of cars that made the list that MIGHT have qualified, the trick was to make sure that it did before you bought it!!
I had purchased three cars that were on the list and didn't make it - bloody expensive. How do you get the supplier to take it out of the case and and measure before posting :rolleyes: Never again with me!

The 2nd and final stage was run and won this afternoon without any great dramas.
As I said before there were a lot of cars that are fun to drive. A few cars sufferred offs due to the off camber inclined corners where front end set ups wouldn't allow any give, but they will be more successful on the flatter tracks.

Thanks to Rick1776 and Hoffy for their assistance.

Well done to Lenny Broke, 356speedster and Slo1quick for preparing cars that ran really well on this track

Thanks to all participants that entered, allowing me to enjoy another weekend with slotcars.

Cars are packed and will be delivered to Lenny Broke tomorrow.

Congrats to Lenny , Tore and Slo1quick.

Hey Tore - what did I tell you, when you posted details of your beast <_<

Hopefully some more names at the pointy end after LB's attack.

Im surprised Ash took any shots of the cars at all. He seemed to spend most of the time chatting to the pit girls that Triggy had arranged to be at round 2 of the rally. Nice touch Triggy, the time seemed to fly as a result. Triggy was a man of discipline and just focused on the driving. Me and Hoffy, well lets just say we were distracted big time.

Yep I remember that deslot that want a deslot. I said did you see that, and Ash chimed in with I did better than that I got the snap!!

Quite pleased with 20th, there is a real battle ahead of me with Jazzbell, OTFS and Nails, less than 270ms after close to 60 laps, which is pretty amazing really.

I couldn't think of anything that would sound nice for your position, the only positive would be that at least your car is compliant (sorry Eno).

<_< Well. If I hadn't been so determined to have no doubt on compliance I probably wouldn't have made the mistake I made. Such is life.

That'll teach me to follow the rules. ;) I'd be better off working on bending them.

Anyway. Not over. Always got more chance to slip behind.

Hey. I'm doing what I promised I'd do. Stopping everyone else from falling off the bottom of the ladder. :)

Thanks for all the hard work Kane and helpers. Thanks for sending the results sheet on to me so quickly. Go wrap the finger around a cold can to ease the pain!

Well done Lenny,356 and Slo1quick, just shows how a different track can change the results. I at least had the best lap time,shame it is so hard to drive.

Hi All
First up thanks to Triggy, Hoffy and Rick for doing the business this round.
Congratulations to Tore and Slo1quick for gaining a podium spot each goodonya guys.
It is pleasing to see the Opel get up there today, thanks Kane for a good drive today.

Now on to round 3 at Norton Hills. I intend to run the round starting on Friday the 10th of December at this stage, but if there is an opportunity I will bring it forward to next weekend.

Here's a link to the build thread for the track for those who want a preview
Norton Hill

Cheers Alan

Like I said earlier in this thread, there are a lot of different characteristics to each rally track in this series that affects cars in different ways, which in turn produces different results, which keeps the event interesting for the competitors.

It certainly was quick Phil, deslots on some corners affected your times. It wasn't quite as forgiving as a few of the other cars.

It was a very quick, forgiving car to drive that wouldn't deslot! A pleasure to drive ( along with a lot of the others)

When it comes to rallying Rick wouldn't know which end of the controller to hold! <_< So, no, he wasn't allowed in the drivers seat.

All cars are good and ready to run, no damage or issues to report.

That's the problem Smallnails "WAAAAAYYY back" & the rules move.. next time there's a conversation about Slot Racing not expanding happens perhaps 'Rules written so as to deter amateurs' should be up there.. <_<
