Well for all you bail-out-ies, racing was close, real close.

One lap covered top three places in all 3 classes. Either tie for first, or tie for 2nd place.

 

T-Bone and I also messed round with my Fairlane and Plymouth stockers, which are finally track ready. Being like his Carrera Superbird etc - lots of revs and brakes out to lunch, "brakes?, what brakes? you mean this track has 3 wires? " We tried them at 9 volts like we'd run the Pugs. Golly, still no brakes but SO much more fun to drive, still pretty quick as the motor is around 24K at 12V, 18K + at 9V

Swapping lanes to compare differences due to the lane length difference, they were close to identical, and maybe half a metre a lap quicker than his carrera Superbird, which is from later I think Mike said '69 versus about mid 60s for the Revell ones.

Pat had a go, not sure who else did, but they were a lot of fun.

 

NEXT WEEK - Viv or Chris, speak up quickly with classes, so we know where we are at.

12k at 12 volts? Anyway yes it was a fun night with close racing. I see what you mean about Snnnnnaaaakkkkke Mac. :rolleyes: But its great to see close racing. The top players in the club better look over their shoulders. And

Capri-com7 looked very much at home with a borrowed Pug.

Thanks for hosting Mike - it was good fun - and yes my Pug needs a lot of work - your spare ran sweet!

The old school F1 was a laugh too - Sorry for sending you to the floor Smithy - my downforce isn't quite there yet...


They are only toys .... until you pull the trigger.

Hi guys, if you go to Mitre 10 to buy some Fuelite make sure you have your drivers Licence and are prepared to fill out a declaration form to say basically that you won't be doing anything illegal with it. This is now policy as I found out on Friday . As I didn't have my licence on me I went to Repco and bought it no problem. Mark did a guy call you about the club?, he said he is a 59 year old who hasn't grown up so I guess you could have a new recruit. Toyworld Napier put him on to me so maybe some new contact numbers would be good for the Toy shop.......

I'm probably out again this week. Still too much on - but I've slipped in some quality time with a Revell BMW 320 over the last two nights.

 

It's quick for a front motored car with full interior. Best time of 7.005. Close but no 6 second cigar. Gloat still in my pocket this time.

Pieguy...the Cartrix are an act of fine tuning with the emphasis on "fine"

Hopefully the car will be fine, I will be fine and everyone will be fine.

Are you fine?....or just fin.

Don't know if I will be there. I have one of the classes out of action and don't have a Cartrix.

The v8's screw mounts are knackered. And besides this is a fast track isn't it? We had Cartix 3 times over the last 5 weeks. I guess I might come early for some track time maybe :rolleyes:

if we run Cartrix first, then you shoul;d at least get there by the 2nd class. I'll bring spare V8 Supercars with me.

Your NASCAR is okay isn't it? My only spare one is a dog - and not strictly legal, urethane tyres.

I also have a couple of SCX Ones I think.... somewhere, they go okay.
