Craig, not not the SAME as the group C Nationals rules, SIMILAR in spirit and principle.
ie stock parts, blueprinted glue ad trues etc - as opposed to a "modified" or "open" class where pretty much anything goes

No - Tyres must be constant diameter.

Setting front height is specifically covered in the rules.
Front axle height adjusting screws may be fitted if chassis has this option, or the front axle inserts glued in place.

Weight is also covered specifically in the rules.
Weight is permitted but must be inside the car, and not visible.

Front tyres are covered
Coating of front wheels to reduce friction in corners or fitting of zero grips is okay.

Rear tyres - YES, you may treat the rear tyres, should have put that into the rules.
The idea of the statement about other modifications was to cover specific things applicable to individual models - eg alloys for the 312, flexible wing uprights for the Chaparral - or to cover for any unforseen similar issue with a particular model or livery issue of a car.
The statement wasn't meant to open up option of ANY other modifications in a general sense.

I now regret not simply saying, "make any other modification and we'll run a steamroller over your car."

You must be the most enthusiastic slot racer here Branco! To travel so far so often is incredible. Hopefully the meal is good ole' steak and chips this time!

I take it that there are no flies in Westport
Cause there is most certainly none on you Mark
Nice going
Is Sub 7 secs at Nelson a pretty good time

I haven't even thought of my car yet

I'll throw in a Magnum of Champagne (the real stuff) for the winner and bottles of Champagne for the other place getters.

Your generous support of our HB events adds a lot of glamour to things thanks Mac.

Yes I agree with you Wongy
Mac is very generous and he brings a lot to our club scene
Wouldn't be the same without him
Thanks heaps for that Mac

A pleasure boys. I reckon we need to get Wongy and Craig to scull a bottle of Champagne before the race to give the rest of us mere mortals a chance. If they agree to do it I'll gladly sponsor the wine B)
Podiums are for short people.

Well since the weekend Westy has confirmed he is coming down, and possibly Bringing Chris West and another son who racers.
Jeremy still calculating if he can do the Shootout as well as the Wellington Enduro first weekend of August.
Up to Tony and Narbs to drag some more Nelson bodies up with them in their road trip

Sheesh I met a lot of NZ slot racing "history" on the weekend - ie people-history

I could have been sorely tempted to try my first "event" but I'll be in Spain, racing my toy motorbike.

Was asked today whether it is okay to remove the small "choke" found on most - but not all motors between the poles.

Decided that yes that's fine. I'll also add into rules etc.
