About tyres both my car's were fitted with new sets glued razored and true before sending of , mind you as regards oldish MJK's never had a problem with them age wise just keep them clean with an occasional light razoring. :)

my two cars:

scx pro xara, spirit motor, gear unkown, guide unknown (it was in my box), rear tyre mjk brand new, pod glued in... changes from last year: rear wheel wider, rear tires were brm (very grippy but catch dust), 5 more gr in the front behind the guide, 2gr moved from the center to the each side of the chassis.

Avant alpine A310, stock motor, change to inline with avant kit, bearing glued in, new rear tyre mjk, guide arm limited in vertical move, weight here and there but not too much (at full power on a grippy track you will see the front wheel lifting B) . first time racing.

thanks a lot for running this round and for the pictures.

Combination of Team Slot quality and my ability to prepare a car...... a match made in heaven!!!!! - more like accidental success I think.

Great result Phil - glad you liked it.

(good class for the Bass Strait Challenge Stubbo and Stu?)

Thanks Phil . It was a last minute thing as you know so she is as standard as you can get with the added weight. The tyres are the originals and I find them ok on both of my tracks . Hopefully it will start to climb the ladder. Again thanks
Cheers Craig.

Thanks guys. I will add all the car info to this thread as time permits.
It will be interesting to see if the eurethenes on the Raids give too much grip on some tracks, mine are very soft (30 shore) all I had!
I know last year some cars had grip problems on Shelmore and proved fast cars on other tracks.

My car is Avant Peugeot 207, factory inline kit, avant slot Green motor that came with it, 9 tooth pinion, avant crown 27 teeth I think. Avant magnesium hubs on the rear, standard wheels on front. 4wd band and pulleys are standard. MJK tyres rear, some old SCX tyres on the front. A bunch of weight up front and drop arm pretty loose.

My narrow Opel has 3 year old nsr ultragrips on the back, other than that it is completely stock.

I ran the car in the Slot Rally GB series 2 yrs ago, nice smooth and can cope with scenery bumping. I just cleaned and sent it off, did not clock the min rear diameter so my rears are a tad under sized. Tyre cleaning a must for mine, which should make it an enjoyable car to drive.

Matt all your tyres are under size! But could not see any simple solution so have let it run as is this year.
The rubber tyres loose grip during each stage as they do pick up any crap off the track.Eurethsnes don't pick anything up,that is the advantage of them on the rally tracks.
Mivesons Mini has under size tyres also!

Well, I think Fabien should take the 2CV. I've had my eye on a Fiat/Seat 850 ever since starting this crazy ride with the SCX Alpine A110 all those years ago. :D

I seriously doubt the mini is going to finish anywhere other than last due to it's small size.

When it left the 4 lights were working perfectly and it was the fastest rally car around Mount Igloo.

Hi Phil. Just a small question. FordRS200 - With most weight shifted to inside of car did it have any tendency to tip as COG would be a bit higher. Thought perhaps a bit more weight might have quietened down but sounds not.

Sorry about Ford motor. Had I a bit more time might have changed to MRRC 1090 slimline out of Lotus GP car. Had to change this to BWA slimline for VRAA.

Regards Chas Le Breton.

Charles the car handled well, just very hard to drive smooth to get good consistant lap times.
