Looking forward to APC , haven't done much racing this year so a little off the pace , anyone started building yet ?

 

So does this mean we stand a "chance" at this years event Paul? Personally can not wait for this event as it will be my first APC, on my club track - not that it is going to be an advantage, and really looking forward to seeing how the top drivers operate.

 

After the mini z enduro held in May at xtreme, this event will be highly enjoyable and excellently run. See ya all in August

Hi Jerimiah

 

Luck was with me last year , but off the pace this year . A few rule changes means some of my cars are out of date as well as no practice = slow Pauly . Best I can do in 1/32 is place midfeild at Narangbah club racing . Same with Mini-Z . My old 1300 chassis Historic is slow also .

 

Anyway , still looking forward to racing at ExtremeTrax and catching up with the folks I was lucky enough to meet last year .

 

9 weeks to go !!!!!!!!!!

 

See you there

Paul

Have to ask the question.

 

The rule on body in the F1 class is Ace24923 or Ace24924 . Before i do another build these 2 bodies look the same but are they?

Hi Shane.

 

I think you will find one is the step down nose and the other is the straight nose.

 

Cheers Jon.

Thanks guys,

 

Certainly a memorable weekends racing for me, lots of luck and the home track didn't hurt either.

Big thanks to the the interstate guys for making the trip, the event wouldn't have been what it was without them.

Also Werner and Alec for the the prizes, trophies and organising the event, Jimmy for all his hard work behind the scenes and Garry Johnson was outstanding as race director...really adds to the professionalism of the racing.

 

Good to see some new faces on the Group C poduim, well done.

 

Cheers,

Well done to cam drove well on his home track, it was a very interesting and eye opening weekend for me, The locals definitely teamed up to serve it the Queenslanders but I think we did ok in the end to take home some trophies.

 

Massive thanks to Werner and Jimmy for putting on the event, cant wait till next year.

Another great APC run and won . A big weekend with all the highs and lows of travelling to someone elses track and having a crack . Jason and I laughed all the way home recapping the weekends events . Well , most of them .

 

Big thanks to Werner and Ace Hobbies for the Plafit racing , Extremetrax and Alex for hosting and all the local lads for welcoming us into their venue . Congratulations to Cam for cleaning up this year , his car preparation seemed to be in a different class than the rest of us this year .

 

And lastly a special thanks to Jim for welcoming us from the time we walked in and taking the time over the weekend to show us the local sites . I particularly enjoyed the barrier at turn 1 and the infield thru the esses .............. All jokes aside , Thanks again for your hospitality and I look forward to seeing many of you next year .

Check the new LMP toy. Love these car already. Werner sold lots of LMP bits and pieces over the weekend to locals. Might see the odd LMP race or two shortly. The light kits are too cool on these cars.74122249-7433-4f05-ba56-a462f94b78ff.jpg
