The cars have arrived and the Raids and Historic cars have left Park Ferme for the transport stage to Bat Florio.
Two of the raids needed diff adjustment, Rusty's big Ford needed the diff shimmed as the mesh was starting to sound very rough, should be fine now.
AMCC Lancer was needed the rear diff replaced, with some teeth missing from the crown.
The Historic cars were in good shape only needing braids and tyres cleaning.
The WRC cars will start the transport after they are serviced.

Apparently the Ford 9" isn't tough enough for 'serious' racing...
lol.

Thanks for the tune up.
Hoping to finish in the top 3 at this stage for a clean sweep of podiums in Raid...
Hoping to finish above the bottom 3 in historics... Damn that Fly motor...

Put your glasses on Phil! That post was by Boss 302's Son!!

Track is clean, names are in computer, ready to go. Should get a couple of practise sessions done in the morning prior to arrival of heavy machinery for domestic duties..

There will be two 13 lap heats. Callan will do one round for each class and I will do the other.

Stand by.......

Here we go.....

Did 5 laps to check out the RAID cars this morning.

No a great deal between them at this stage and ink they will end up a little quicker

14AMCC 14.189
20ShadowRusty 14.347
17TeamRed 14.534
19Miveson 14.609
18PKalbfell 14.676
21Gas41T 16.062

Team red is my favourite so far - handles undulations very well.
Shadow Rusty ute is the liveliest and it will get quicker.
Gas41 suffering from a slight lack of grip but I think I will get better as the track gets "rubbered" in.

All in all the cars were better than I thought.....

Just qualified the WRC cars.....

There are some seriously good cars in there.

Slo1 Subaru is unreal - very smooth and has set a new track record.
Big surprise to me was Ember's Celica. Great car which does everything right.
CharlesX Subaru is brilliant.It will be right there along with AMCC Peugeot. Knealer Peugeot also a standout.
Will post photos (when I work out how) and video clips over the next couple of days


Slo1quick 12.529
Ember 12.89
AMCC 12.917
Curef 12.97
Knealer 13.021
Charlesx 13.189
Gazza 13.471
Gas41T 13.587
Alexis 13.593

I'm confused. The most common complaint about the VC Celica is 3 legged dog syndrome. Similarly with the JJJ RS200 and yet an occasional driver and track have loved them both. I can't help but wonder what I've done that's right or wrong. The Celica is running on the same chassis as it did a couple of years ago as the SlotCar MAG entry when it was just outside top 10. No complaints of marking territory then.

Thanks for the good qualifying positions with both my cars. Will be interesting to see what happens with the longer run.

It is a great car Ember..... My track is very undulating - yours does everything just right. I think it may go slightly quicker..... Hope to run heat 1 later today.

I don't know either Embs. Ask the driver and navigator. The car seems to be scaring the daylights out of them. Check their eyes :P :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Posted Image

Sorry wrong class :ph34r:

Right class Mel. I didn't bother repainting the heads that I grabbed of some random guys in the parts bin.

Bruces track does not have high grip, so the cars tend to slid about a lot,should be plenty of eurethane down as we only ran on it two weeks ago. Plus all the practice no doubt Bruce and Callan have done!
