You'll like the results from that clear John, I no longer buy TS13, I use the same can as you have shown.

Yep, I have used the same based on what Munter and Mac said - which you told them Dave.
- Glen is now stocking the 2936 at Cool Toys, and he has the Testors 9000 decal fixer as well.

Only thing I noticed in this cool weather was that, even though I heated the can before use, due to low temperatures, it took a full day for it to go hard. It felt sticky for ages.

Roscoe suggested yesterday that I put it somewhere warm, so I just kept in in the lounge near the aircon, and today it is nice and hard.

BTW. He now has his DTM entry car, - guess what livery he chose........

Gave my DTM entry a few laps at Pat's last night, and managed to knock off a bit of roof trim ...... where o where did it fly....

Quite happy with the smoothness, seems stable through the windy upper level after the sweeper.

the good news is that I have been hired to drive Piebones Alfa for this race
I have given it a test run on Pat's track and it is smooth and easy to drive
will give it a couple of little tweaks in the tuning department and it will be ready to rumble in the BigMcMaccer's jungle

Aint it scary, our half-'merican Stars n Stripes friend with the "reputation for innovation" has hired the scrutineer as his driver.
The forensic team :ph34r: is being assembled as we speak; to give the bone car the once over, twice over, three times for good measure-over.... :lol:

I was thinking me might take a leaf from the book of another famous 'merican, the sailing legend Dennis Conner.
We can "core sample" the bone car and do a bit of "destructive testing" on the composites.....

.......... in all seriousness. Dave let me have a couple of laps, and it is nice and smooth, and feels balanced.
- We'll paint the target on the car race day Dave..... :D :P

Dave wasn't going to run as he has his heart set on a certain green n gold Mercedes being released in a few months, which would have been a shame as he is a great contributor to slots both sides of the Tasman with his running of the proxies.

nice one Mark
but the car will be of spec
I do need to remove about 1.5-2 grams out of it to meet the weight rule
and yes the Merc is much more appealing in the looks department for me anyway
and I reckon it will be the car to beat, low and wide

Well guys, one week from right now, and the first four drivers will be shuffling to the stations and getting ready to kick their cars around
the track in the first heat.

We have 22 entrants, and a handful of attendees who will be spectating but not driving.
We have local club racing on Thursday night, classes to be announced, so anyone arriving by then is warmly invited. Address is 701 St Georges Road as below of course.

Locals will have their first flick of their DTMs Thursday night, so we can optimise time for visiting drivers on Friday, where you will have
priority on the track.

The dinner is all set up for the Loading Ramp in Havelock North, Saturday night 7:30pm where we have the private function room.
Map below. The venue have asked that I pay the fixed price menu as a single bill, so I will be hunting attendees to try and collect all the
money prior to end of racing Saturday, so I don't have to worry about it Saturday night.

Are you going to do qualifying and then A B C D heats?
Might be the fairest way.

Yep, - I think it is the best way, as people get to race in a bracket with guys their own pace.
Was talking with Ross at lunchtime when he picked up some bits and he was pleased to hear that.
I think some bloke from Bay View has a target on his back should they end up in the same bracket :lol: :P :D :lol: :P :D

As we have 22 drivers, I am thinking we will probably have one "round robin" group of 6, then 4 groups of 4. But hadn't put the groups exactly in stone, as someone may pull out or come in as late entries.
I have a driver briefing doc to go through Friday before qualifying, which should "de-mud" most issues :lol:

For anyone here on Thursday night we will be holding a casual tuner session and running 2 classes - 65-80 sports and LMP - at my place. Both have open motor rules so anything goes.

Hi Mark

Unfortunately it looks like work commitments are going to count Nelson out from attending this weekend.

It will be just me to represent the Naki.


Cheers
