Recommended Posts

Welcome to Rnd 7 of the 2017 Oz Proxy at "Minto Rally Park"

 

Minto%20Rally%20Park%20Panorama_zpsdawd0svr.jpg

 

Hi guys . Rnd 6 of the Oz Proxy will start this weekend weather permitting . For those who dont know about my tracks , I also have a road circuit that can be moved outside my garage and covered when not in use or when doing Proxys .

 

The main circuit (pic below) which can be run by itself and I have 2 other extensions that can be all fitted seperately or all together to create a 39 mtr layout. Surface is a polyurethane paving paint .

This time round I'm using the 2nd extension ((above) which gives me around a 27mtr layout. Voltage will be 10v and will be using a Slot-It controller. Scoring is race Co-Ordinator. Mel and Gaz will be over for marshalling and camera duties as usual .

Will be doing the usual clean and test tomorrow night when everything is up and running. Little bit worried about a couple of the cars from Gary's round. Anyway "LET THE FUN BEGIN"

Hi guys . What a weekend , btween the rain and having to put 3 sheets of plastic over the road circuit and totally forgetting about a club round, this has been a hectic weekend Gaz Mel and myself. I"ll start with the only casuality from friday nights test being Dylans Mini. Unfortunatley his drive belt didnt last from Gazza's and a couple of laps in and it let go.

Ok , here we go with the Classics. Just to answer Gas41t ( Rosco) Mate the beemer went well but suffered like some others . Push a little harder and deslots on corners it wasnt suppose to come off. So you back off a little so to not make the same mistakes.

The man came through for me . Thanks Mel . Dont know how you did it , so I wont ask :huh::D .

With that Congrats to the podiumites Peter Gunn , Gas41t , Ben M and Shadow Rusty.

 

Due to popular belief my car didnt do as well on my track :o . Got to admit I did go a bit cocky and pushed it :wacko: .

I am also sorting out car pics as well that Gaz took and will post them up after the round results are finished being posted. Will also try and give feed back on cars as well.

Cheers Craig

Sorry guys for some unknown reason I haven't got the pic of the Final Podium. Most probably in a hurry to give the cars to Mel. Anyway I will endeavor to get those podium cars back after Mel does his next rnd and get a pic, so watch this space.

 

Cheers Craig

In case some are wondering why I have the cars back.

They are heading out west about 1hr on the weekend for a round at Nuggets Hill

Well done Craig...

Congrats to the podiumites...

 

Totally confused how I can go from 2nd in the first heat to 11th in the second...

But that's racing I guess...

Congrats to those on the podium with me,Curef99, Mark and Mel .

Again this Citroen of mine loves my track . I used it a bit for our Slotkhana's which it did well.

 

Still sorting out pics so shouldn't be long till I post them and haven't forgotten about revues on each class. Thanks all for allowing me to run your cars on my track. And to Cure , thanks , any reason to get the rally track out and run it, gives me a reason not to get rid of it .

Cheers Craig

 

Forgot to mention that Boss302 , your Focus kept on loosing it's front wheels through the 2nd stage. So after the stage we knotched the axle and super glued it back on . Hopefully it should stay on at Mels next round.

I've stared into the fire and won against Joe Z racing many times, and what a blast, doubt you guys could claim the same.

 

The super moderator Gazza used to hassle Joe endlessly for being a cripple with spare time on his hands and a winners determination as the reason for Joe winning races, AND WHAT IS WRONG THERE???.

 

We haven't missed Gazza the super moderator at any meet he has not attended since.

 

You 3 farkers call me directly, I'll PM my number, as I'd like to discuss in person the antics that have gone on previously.

I have 4 MJKs sitting out in the sun since this news broke. One is the special control tyre. No degration yet.

I personally believe the tyre came into contact with some type of fluid

Oils like WD40 will degrade urethane...

I tend to use silicone based oils as they are better on plastics, but even they can affect rubber...

A wet (water) rag with a little liquid soap is still the best way to clean them up and get ready for action

but i have 8 cars failing (2 int he proxy and 6 at home). unless my wife decide to make a science experiment with my 12y old, i do not see this happening.
