30+ drivers, great nights racing, with plenty of sledging, slanging and silliness

Another good night down at Penrith . Thanks again to Mario ,Daniel and the crew. There was some carnage but not as much as last time I think :huh: .

My car had more wobbles going than a walmart chick. Thanks for that that great bracket of ours Jimmi. that was sheer racing with a bit of pushing it a little too hard down to the wire by me and stuffing it up where it mattered the most.

Little bit of work to be done but overall ,I was happy with some of my lap times. Good to see Joey out of his league ,but in saying that he near on fell out of his chair when he actually won a bracket. Gotta be at the next one.

Cheers Craig

Damn shame I didnt make it. There was a prang on Silverwater Rd yesterday and I managed to travel 3km in 40 minutes. Turned around and went home! Next time!

Typical Craig though running an illegal Scalex NASCAR. Nearly as fast as the tweaked SCX ones running around.

My initial thoughts :unsure: of a tri oval being boring have been blown away. They are a blast with a big field of drivers :wub: :wub: :wub:

 

Great bunch of guys and a fantastic facility.

Cant be proven Vince as it was put up to the scrutineers and they passed it. Could you imagine if it didn't have the death wobbles and I drove it like I came from Mt Druitt , I'd have probably got to the topside of the list.

Had the pleasure to visit Penrith slot cars on Friday night to race my favourite plastic 1/32nd class of car & what a great turnout it was with 30 entrants.

I was very impressed with the centre & would put it up there with Thunderbird raceway in Adelaide as one of the best centres in Aus.

With 30 racers it gave me plenty of time to check out the facility & have a chat with the locals to make it a very enjoyable night.

The racing was fun as well & had a great dice with Plucka in a number of heats,my car had the handling while Plucka's got one of his drag motors mixed up wih the SCX chassis :blink:

Can't wait for the next one :D

Cheers Jimmy

Those 3 left hand turns had me all messed up.

 

That car is a jet but handles like a bucket no matter how much i screw around with weight.

 

When i get back from my break i am going to check it, i have a sneaky feeling its got a bigger pinion so if it does ill fix it with the standard.

 

I am going to use it in a newer car as well as they seem to handle better.

 

That was the car i used at the model car nationals at Dapto all those years ago and i have not changed it.

Better leave it alone Paul I think there will be some fast cars at the next one.

Thanks Gazza another fun night although some issues with the timing last night. Happy with second place, amazing what a straight axle can do for the car.
