The Aussie cars were sent today.

Please let me know when they arrive so I can cross them off the list.

Phil, all the Tassie cars are coming to you.
Lenny, the 4 SA cars are coming to you and
Shadow, I have sent difinity's car with yours. He will collect it from you when he returns from leave.
DM and Terry, your cars are travelling solo.

PS don't forget there is a new SRP 16k motor in the returns. One for each entrant this year.

The internationals will be sent in the next couple of days.

Thanks Alan,

Looking forward to actually having a play with it...

Cars arrived safe, but the stupid courier just left them at the door and they very nearly got stolen.
My son heard the dogs going nuts and opened the front door to see the would be thief run off.
They had opened up the bag, but got interrupted. Thankfully.

Hi Stubbo/Alan.

My car arrived back home today. Thanks for the motor. Will be interesting to see how this goes compared to my existing Brabham one which was new for 2017 proxy.

While packaging looked fine on outside and even the interior box (which I have used for several years) was completely intact with no signs of crushing car itself was badly crushed at rear axle but repairable (left rear wheel pushed in by about 3mm but still tight on the axle). Main damage appears to broken/bent suspension. There is a big chip off the paint work but this may have been racing damage as I have had to fix chips before.

On further inspection while part of suspension and hydraulic line fell off when I loosened and moved the wheel back to end of axle the later appears straight/freely revolving and car still sits flat on set-up block.

On a more positive note even my mirrors survived this year and Denny did not seem at all concerned. Just one of the hazards of racing.

Glad to have car back. Look forward to running it against my VRAA cars.

Regards Chas Le Breton

I ran the Gkids car on Shelmore on Monday, it is now around 3 tenths faster than when it went away! Seems the more running the faster some cars become. Just wish it also applied to my car.
