Wow interesting possible rule changes for the Nationals. Rock on Wood guides!! Mark have you got a good supply? :lol:. Should be easy to add one to a NASCAR...Why not lol. Has there been any changes to Ninco classics? I mean the newer classics have stronger motors in them. Obviously the people who want a specific Ninco classic that has the stronger motors will have to fork out more for a smaller motor? I think that's a bit silly. Will wait in anticipation.

Hopefully they can come up with a better solution, wood guides are alot of work. No changes to Ninco classic, and the newer motors (NC5) will not be allowed to compete with NC1/NC8. My classic came with an NC2 which is also not allowed. It's not really silly.....just a bad decision by Ninco to use the higher powered motors in their classic range. Anyway the last I heard, Ninco classic may get removed as a class from the Nationals (after this year of course). Can't remember why exactly but it might be due to availability of the lower powered motors.

Maybe take out the "Ninco" so its not solely Ninco. Make it a Pre 65 classic allowing all other brands to race. Limiting the motor spec to 18k at 12 volts. This would allow Ninco 20.6k at 14 volts to be viable which is what the new Nincos are using? At 12 this would drop to 18k?

The NC5 would be about 16.5k at 12 volts but not sure of the watts. Personally I find the Ninco class a bit slow and boring, but there's plenty of guys who love this class and have invested heavily in building cars over the years so i'm not sure any changes (particularly motor) would be met with widespread approval.

If you allow other brands, I have a Pre 65 with a factory slot.it podded chassis, which would be unfair. Then presumably I'd have to find a similar Indygrip tyre to suit since using slot.it tyres would be unfair (or it becomes an open tyre class), then i'd have to buy a slower motor as it came with an orange bell. So either way people will be forced to replace parts. I don't think there's a solution to suit everyone. One for the rules committee maybe.

As for tonight, i'm unsure what time i'll be arriving so eat without me whether i'm there or not.

Righto Craig, see you when you arrive. Bring liquid, it aint exactly hypothermic weather today ! Chris' or Rob's prob to sort out the Ninco Classics for next year. We did talk about replacing that as a class after this year due to the least interest in entries and reduced options of new cars, but I don't think Chris got any further than just discussion. Another factor coming into play from now will be that if the nats are to be held on the large Wellington track, ANY slower class may be a bit of a bore for some. Anyways, they'll solve the guide issue one way or another, the bacl insulation tape may be all that is needed as a stop-gap. Paul will report back in due course I guess.

A big thank you Mark for your hosting prowess.

There was food, drink, good company, slotcar racing and conversation....there was even rhubarb on offer.

A great time was had by all......didn't Viv drive well, Craig?

Hey all back a bit early. Felt a lot better Friday a.m. after lying down a few hours and shot off at first light, Made the funeral at 11.30 in Albany with 5 minutes to spare, - and no speeding... Despite my bit of pain, I had a great time myself, nice relaxed night, and we even had someone else doing the hard yards on the BBQ. "spiffing smithy, spiffing" JK. - We have a rhubarb plant doing trifford imitations, call by on your way home from work one night and we'll cut a bunch. Viv and munter took a pile and you can barely see where it went after 2 days. And Damien really took to the wood racing, he's keen to start a club up his way. Not to bad for a guy who had 5 minutes driving experience without magnets before you all arrived !

Hi Mark

yeah, you could be forgiven for thinking the track and racing were a sideshow to the main event.
In their defence, we had sat around and fed and lubricated the bodies for a while, so concentration levels may have been lowered to increase the "relaxation factor"
I shot that vid and put it up on Slotforum as well, because we had a visitor "Damo" who is on slotforum, but not on here - yet.
He is from Ohope (next to Whakatane), and this was his first experience of club racing.

Viv has said he'd host. But we need classes.

I'd vote for GT since they can stratch their legs on the long straight, and maybe muscle car?

But I might not be able to come, so don't decide on my preferences Viv. Still crook like last week.
