Yes very bad luck Rossko at least you have the satisfaction of knowing you had a car capable of 10 podium spots so you have a good basis to start on for next year , i could only manage 1 3rd place, with a car i thought better than last years but that's the way it goes.
I have been banging on about alloy wheels back to the SCX days but i suppose it would need major changes to the cars , axles, gears to start with as well as alloys all round so may not be viable with scaley cars being used, cost wise.

Congratulations to these winners. Cars were smooth and great to drive. Well done everyone
Hopefully we will see many of you next year with possibly a new format.

A big thanks to all the hosts who spend many hours running rounds.

Also to all those who helped out in keeping the series running while I was often somewhere close to rounds being run in the UK and Greece.

Congrats all, Thanks to all those involved, it was great to follow.

On the selfish side I am really happy for the 16th spot given the false start.

I too had rear axle problems hence the DQ at the beginning, thanks Mel for the replacement and allowing me to still compete, don't forget to take it back before you send my car back.
Cheers Grant

I didn't get a chance to tune it properly so Phil in Tassy gave it a good tickle for you.

Good fun again this year and the picture of the top ten had me nodding, pretty much what I would have listed as the top ten if I had been asked.

Some great cars, some others a little interesting to drive. Well done all, getting a car together and running for a jaunt around the world is an interesting experience, especially for a slotter who doesn't get out to clubs very often.

I hope the notes along the way have helped entrants understand the setup needs of their car. If anyone wants a more in depth analysis of their car next year when it visits Wales, I'm happy to give them another drivers viewpoint of how the car behaves on a tight bumpy track.

Gas41T, you have to enter next time, I always enjoy driving your cars!

Now the dust has settled and the end has come a few thoughts, congrats to the top 3 Ford's, my money was on Mondeo man for the top spot and he nearly made it, JAMC so consistant at the beginning think the car was running out of gas a bit towards the end, 6 1st places was a killer start to the series for that car in the first 6 races slaughtered the rest of us, and my ole mate Gas not a very good way to end a series but agree with Snurfen you have to enter a car , after all your one of the top guys in any proxy you enter and we need to pick someone's brains to improve our cars.
Think Kabfelp did great to get to 4th place with only one podium in the series a 3rd, my old mate Snurfen got a nice win , and 1 2nd and 1 3rd place as well , Gazza a solo win and Alexis a win and 2 2nd and, 1 3rd place also worthy of mention, a few of us got a odd 2nd or a 3rd but we were not in the same class as the top runners.
If we run again in 2019 i,m ready for it actually been building a replacement RS 200 with tips i,ve picked up this year, after all that's what proxy racing is all about forever learning.

The Grandkids wil be very pleased, especially the one who did the final tuning. Shame that two of them will not be around for next year.
There was very little to pick between the top RS200 they are very close.
Very pleased with my 4th place. Bit more development for next year and it might have a chance against the RS200.
Lot of discussion about wheels But how many of the Scalex Wheels have broken?
I think most of the stress on these wheels is people trying to remove them from the axles..
Great series thanks to all the hosts and helpers, especially the Sydney crew for keeping this series going.

I have some more action pics to post but they are now on SWMbO's in Brisbane. So when I catch up with her Ill post them next week sometime.

Also I'm having a short break so cars will probably start to be posted out late next week.

Well... thats it for 2018...
Congratulations to JAMC - the Belga liveried RS200 was the best looker in my mind as well.
Congratulations to all competitors, hosts and to Mel and team (inc J) for time and efforts in making this event happen.

Best regards, Leo
PS - who is JAMC ?

Leo:
JMAC are the initials of my Grandkids. Jack,Matt,Abby and Caine. One of the older granddaughters started the entries some years ago,very sussesfully, after spending much time watching and learning.
But “ Codes” has moved interstate and this year her brother wanted to see how he could prepare a car, not so well with the Tasman Cup car but borrowing my chassis from last year and Codes prize from Ozrally he certainly retuned the chassis to his liking and obviously to other drivers and tracks.
Unfortunately he is also now moving interstate to join his sister and Mum, so this will be there last entry until one of the others take up the challenge.

I am interested for some one to go back over the years and see how many cars have broken wheels During the event, I think there have been very few breakages. Most seem to happen during preparation,probably with people trying to remove wheels from axles, something I avoid unless if possible.
