Will be a no show from me. Covid shot number two has me feeling flatter than usual.

This is your chance to learn to set up a car from one of the best RTR tuners in the game - and by that I mean one of the best in the world.

Dave arrives mid-arvo Friday August 13, but the track will be open all day and into the evening. Run what you brung during the day, and if we get enough guys there, we will run some sort of house class race on Friday evening. 

Tuning class kicks off 9.30am Saturday, with a Thunderslot McLaren on the bench. After the masterclass is done,  we'll run a Group 5 Teams race. This will be 2-4 hours long depending on how much time we have. Sounds like we will have a few out of town guests, so we will pick teams / team cars on the day to try and get an even field. I'll put up some prizes to spice it up. 

For the out of towners, Group 5 Rules as per our local club roster: (we mainly run Sideways cars. The hot set up seems to be sidewinder running NSR 25k).
Motor: Open
Wheels: Open.
Tyres: Open
Gears: Open
Axles: Open
Body: Can be lightened and lowered on chassis
Chassis: Essentially stock when viewed from underneath. HRS chassis and donor chassis allowed|
Interior: Lightweight interior allowed.
Motor can be braced to rear axle bushes. 


I'm really looking forward to this weekend. Dave's a top man and we will all learn some new tricks from him. 
Race Catering will be in full effect during the weekend - probably not for dinners, but you never know! 

I hope you guys make the most of this opportunity.

Richard beat Ryan for 3rd place by 0.49 of a second across 6 minutes of racing......

(The 6.8 lap given Mac was someone crossing into his lane in front of him, just an anomaly, doesn't affect number of laps)

I think there are some pretty dodgy types hanging jin that shed. I had better sort out a security team and get them painted to keep order.

Tick, plus 1 - and Thunder Road is the only track I haven't done one of those "epic" movies for over the last few weeks, so we should complete the set.

Yo JK - I have a couple of others wanting a white kit.  Would you still like me to get one for you if I do another mixed order.
The blighters have put their freight up - they must have been selling at a loss... would work out to $80 for a white kit.
They also have a few left with paint defects - that work out cheaper than white kits, blue, white, green, "Smokey"(black and gold)  at $75 each
