Livery has been planned, so here's hoping I can manage it...

 

Tyres have been ordered... My first purchase of Ultra's...

and I still haven't started

still trying to decided on how to set up the chassis

I am happy with how the back half is but as for the front

I think there needs to be some major surgery needed, like a transplant


Holdens rule the rest just drool

Scared off by the sheer presence of the Mighty Gulf(ish) Turd huh? I don't blame you Crockett. My one's so fast that I'm lobbying NZSCA to allow Metros in the GT Class of the 1/32 Nationals!

This build just inspired me to print my own decals for the first time. Long long way off from using them though...


They are only toys .... until you pull the trigger.

I'm impressed, I did decals for my RC bike, came out ok, pity my artwork was crap.

 

My body is mostly done, except for assembling the mounting to the chassis.

 

Struggling with the big choices, tyres/wheels and how much motor I can handle.

Or that could read, I have a plan - but I'm only 99% confident it is the right plan.

I just found this thread geeezzzz

If I had a car I would enter and ask to alocate wobble to drive for me but I think it's a bit late to enter ....

A 20k shark haha I would go something like a 19k slotit motor or a long can mt5 motor

There is heaps of time to enter Gas. I know quite a few of the guys haven't started their builds.

 

I know this because last night at club racing two dodgy mongrels were scouring my shed trying to uncover the mighty GulfTurd - opening cupboards and drawers - desperate to uncover the secrets behind its blistering pace and nimble handling.

 

Wobble is in but hasn't got his car yet. There is no rush for a start date but hopefully we are underway by October. You can get a car off eBay within a week. Plenty of time mate. Plenty of time.

Hi Slotmadmac

 

Put me down for this proxy as well. Must be a glutton for punishment but these are a bit of fun.

 

Rossko, I have sent you a PM about sourcing a car if you are interested.

 

Cheers

Go for it GAS but I won't be able to drive the mighty Metro for you as there's too much water between them and me and I don't swim too good and I can't fly.

And yeah, I've been sucked into the Metrorama worm hole too, or is it a turd hole?

Hi Slotmadmac.

 

Did you find you had any spare cars. Have not seen any on Trademe of late and I am not prepared to pay big bucks for ones I have seen on Ebay.

 

If not all the best with the event. I will enjoy reading the results, photos etc. Some of the builds are looking really good.

 

My Touring Car Proxy build (Scaly Holden V8) is also going well. Must put some photos on AUSLOT soon if I can sort a way now that Photobucket is no longer an option.

Ps CHAS your already cheating everything for free is always better !!! Lol

I've got a plan, this is gonna be awesome, best race meet ever.

 

Shaping up good, I'm really looking forward to when the flag drops.

 

Wheels and front tyres sorted, I have two options for the rear tyres.

I really need make a decision so I can locate the axles to set my ride height.

 

Nearly up to clear coat.

 

ps, I will be away at Phillip Island for MotoGp races the week end 20-22 October.

Cheat, cheat, I don't cheat...

I may bend the rules a little, but I don't cheat...

 

lol.

 

 

And clutsy?

Would of been much simplier to just add a C, and make Shadow Crusty...

Which is also kind of funny given the livery I'm going to work on over the weekend...

 

 

And yes, I did think about using P6's, but went the Ultra path as both had to be ordered in anyway.

Nice technique. That explains why your cars always run so sh%tty. I always wondered.

 

Good news on the new entrants. I think I may build another MetroTurd. . The way I see it, when you have my level of Turd genius it would be unfair to limit it to just one car.

Hi Gas41T and Slotmadmac.

 

Quite happy to buy a car for up to $15 - 20 but FREE like you suggest Gas41T would be better. Slotmadmac you can even keep the car after event if you wish.

 

As I said previously nothing on TM recently (Murphy's Law) and the ones I have seen on Ebay were spoiled by cost of postage.

 

Really quite happy just to watch. Particularly the side Aussie challenge.

So, I got the dremel out last night, and I now have a convertible Metro...

Now that's a weight saving of 5grams, all up high...

Good thinking, I limited myself to grinding material out of the roof from inside, but I could easily take too much and at a minimum have a sunroof.
