Wrp 2017 Entry List

Recommended Posts

is the Ford gonna be the main one i wonder ? .

 

I think it's going to be the gun car (no pun intended) due to it's low profile and balance, it'll be the car of choice

 

But don't rule out the others, i hear Scotland's but in another nuclear plant to meet the power demands from Leo's place getting the last drop of power out of the Lancia

Leo will have a extra boost Gary SNP power , ah Ben the Metro has a strange history over here can remember them well , rusty and forlorn at the side of the road bonnet up smoke emitting from the engine bay 2 people peering into it one saying you should have bought a B Ford twit head, and my brother still speaks to me.

On the slot car front change of motor this morning just to run one of the spares in , fitted new MJK's did think about leaving the others on and running the cog down a bit chuckle but not to sure about that , found the thinner silver braids work a treat bit more flex to keep the braid in contact with the track when pushing the car, nothing else to do now other than sit with me feet up with a cold bottle of Weston's Cider waiting to see the opposition show up chuckle.

I'll check Immense Miniatures to see if the have a Nicola Sturgeon figure... Last time we had a "Rally Scotland", Alec Salmond got involved and proudly wore the appropriate anorak. I-M could start an SNP range.

With a car that looks like that it might be more a case of Team Macho

I gave a few of Phil's test mules a run, after club racing. Lead mule is, I think, Lancia.

 

Put me in for one, when the whips are crackin'....yee-haw. :wacko:

Hi Gazza.

 

Just received my car today. Clarion Metro. It is certainly tiny. Perhaps not the best choice but I did not want to run another Ford RS200.

Thanks Chas

 

They are a little bulky looking and maybe a bit top heavy, but they are fun to drive

 

And as i pointed out before, they're not the shortest wheelbase ...... the Audi gets that

Going by the photos the Delta looks like it'd be a hard act to follow as the rear track looks to be quite a bit wider going by the gap between the spur and the wheel plus the tyres look a bit wider too. Should be a bit more stable surely.

The tyres that are on the Lancia are the same ones for the Audi ...... 4221.

 

The tyres on the RS and MG are the same.

 

The photo shows an earlier type i was testing, they now run the 4257, which gives them about 1/2 mm overall difference between the two types.

 

List has been updated ....... need more info on chosen cars

Excitement is building Branco still a longggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg way to go , be good to see some pictures of other builds my Ford is feeling lonely chuckle , Wobble Delta looks a good one to get but looking at the rear end won't bounce of the scenery that well one problem I've learned in the past with rally's , be interesting to see where this goes after 2017 as regards more variety of cars one thing levelled at SCX also true with the B scaley .
