That's so wrong Rossko B)

 

But in saying that we sure did. Pedro's Bahia Vista brought the challenge and brought some amazing door to door racing....

 

For the out of Towners we brought in the best of Europe and Taradale to run your beasts...

 

Some random pics - others will have more...

Here is a Metro 1/1...I think it has had the ride height adjusted.

Here is a car and a shed...can you spot the difference?

The shed looks a little racier.

Apologies to Rusty - and to Gas.41T I think. I drove two nice cars that deserved at least a couple of flaps better than the 42s I stumbled through.

4 months since I held a controller, and I picked up JKs on one car (we have identical looking Difalcos apart from the resistor pack), and couldn't figure out why I couldn't get "my" Difalco tweaked to my normal feel.

 

JK was either too polite or too amused at my senility to point out I was using his controller.

BREAKING NEWS.: I have retired Punkturd as I need its motor for another club event that's coming up.

 

Keen observers might say 'a least that gives someone else a crack at a podium' but you know me guys, I'm the humble type. I couldn't possibly mention that.


Podiums are for short people.

Alrighty then... I know you've all been worried about Metrobro & his incredible diff whine...

 

Happy to report he's back to his "Original" self - Flat 6 midships and lined up correctly as per. Plus with my new brake pot fitted he now coasts around superbly with no violent sideways entry's to corners...

Bring on the next round.

 

Oh and apologies to any turd herders who had the misfortune of me driving in the original round.

More than happy to 'wipe clean the porcelain' & host a 'do over' round if anyone would like ;)

round 3 was fast and furious

Macs cross turd was a tough customer tonight

we had snake back from Uni and drove the king burger turd

the rusty turd had a couple of lid skids at the hand of Munter

Pats metrobro is back to running smooth and with his controller fixed his turd was running fast and hard

wobbles gold turd was pushing hard and leaving turd skids on the corners

 

bring on race 4

will it be thunder road or the anaconda


Holdens rule the rest just drool

 

slot cars are my drug,

Yes the Black Widow certainly flushed out quite a bit of movement on the gloat board.

Yes, sorry about "sleeping at the wheel" when I was on red lane, SR.

The 19 laps on the middle lane was enough to give me hope for a good result for the Rusturd but then brain fade set in.

Always a fun night in the DaveCave and there sure was some close racing. I drove the Gold WobblyTurd and enjoyed it. Nice to see Pat back up the food chain. JK's car looked really sweet on the 'Widow and gets the 'should have done better' award.

It's ok Munter...

If it handled better, it wouldn't end up on it's roof...

 

Oh and as this is a shitfest, the way I see it, Branco is 'winning' and I'm sitting in equal 4th.

If I read the scoring rules right. Any Constipaturd or Procrastinaturd that turns up now having missed three rounds, must surely win the butt award .. yeah baby

She's a bit of a roughie Rossko

It has a couple of "rear bumper protectors", cunningly disguised as M3 headed bolts in 32:1 scale . . . . . the photos cunningly hide that I messed up my crude mount of the body at back, and it sits about 1mm twisted.

Still need to pilfer a body post off an old shell and mount the front end.

 

All I know is that applying a 9 volt battery to the motor turns the back wheels, but if Munter is able to get some suckie-molding done in time, I will throw it on a track in some kind of rolling form.

A good way to remind myself what slot building and tuning is. I hadn't touched a work bench since last April.

might need a bit more turd polish Mark. I reckon bonus points for the crappiest paint job are in order.
