Hi all,

Just to follow up from the Slotforum thread, I have added my name to the list (Driver#8) and would be grateful to be allowed to run a repainted C3500, which is the sidewinder Quattro but the earlier S1 shape rather than the be-winged E2. As you can see the chassis and running gear is identical.

My main reason for running this car is that it was there's more of a choice on correct period liveries for it. Would be grateful to know if the body is acceptable though as I know you've only run the E2 in previous years.

This is the intended car to run:

And this is the paint job:

Many thanks!

As I have mentioned on SlotForum.
I think you will need to research that the S1 competed in the same years as the RS200,Metro and Lancia as that period is what this Proxy is based on. Group B 1982 to 1986.

Hi Phil,

Yes, it debuted in Corsica 1984 and ran as the primary works car until the Olympus Rally of 1985 when the E2 version took over. It stayed in the front line until the end of the Group B era in 1986, making the last appearance of a Quattro in the world championship at the RAC Rally that year.

Great :rolleyes: . Added to the list As PG suggested - adding a sprung guide is almost necessary

Cheers Mel, another car type in the mix. The E2 versions that have run already always make me smile as they sound good and have that monstaer look.

It took a while to respond to this topic, but bugger me it takes ages getting all these layers of coats, jackets and mittens off to be able to type! Look forward to the rules coming out (if they havent already), I reckon my little RS200 could do a place or two better if I send it to Aus in time this year! ;)

I love the look of that S1, it's such a shame that none of the Audi's liked my Deadman's stage in 2018.
If you do host a round in Farnham, please promise me you are not going to use that bloody Ninco(?) rope/swingbridge or that stage where the cars fell down a hill about 7' tall :D More than welcome to use your Red Arrows stage again though, I enjoyed that.

Hi Martyn,

No... we won't have vertiginous Ninco if we're on the calendar. My S1 quite liked it, though... that big sledge of a sump guard did its job, I don't think the front wheels touched once!

I'll talk to the members and see how many are keen to help, then I'll know how many stages we can hope to run.

Hi guys,
I'd like to be added to the list of entrants, probably a Lancia, although I do have all the others, including the S1 like Nick.
Some testing needed I think.

Hi Mel and all. I have been threatening to build a rally type track for several years. Lo and behold I finally got it going today in its most basic form. I actually started it in July 2018 while my wife was overseas but Branco gave me the last push to get it done. Not sure yet whether it is WRP Round material but I have tried several of my cars without difficulty including my OZ Rally Scaly Ford RS200, a completely standard Ford RS200, my WRP Metro and earlier SCX Toyota 4WD, SCX Ford Escort and finally a standard Scaly Ford Fiesta.

Track is very tight with one long straight plus a shorter one but the rest is a variety of sweeping to tight corners all fitted onto a door sized board - 800mm x 1980mm. It was the first time I had used a router so it is a bit rough. Some extra trimming was required in a few places. The only rally track I have ever driven on except for a Ninco one in Wellington was once a few years ago thanks to Mel and his Mount Salt Panorama track while on holiday in Sydney.

It has no timing gear or proper controller yet but paint surface did not appear to a problem grip wise. Do not laugh but sample-pot enamel paint was applied with a bit of towelling. Have thoughts of using a timing app on my cell phone for timing. Can anybody suggest a suitable application.

Will take a photo over weekend and post on AUSLOT so you can all have a good laugh at my effort. Next step will be to build a sprint type track of the same size as I do not have a lot of room.

Regards Chas Le Breton (charlesx)

I tried the phone app on me if my tracks, it would be a lot of work to use for a round of the WRC.
You would be better off using RC on an old PC or laptop, as the results are all collated and can be exported on a spreadsheet.

I'm hoping to join in again for 2019 but it depends on whether I have time to fix the things that I know can be improved on my car so put me down as a maybe and I'll confirm once timings and rule changes are announced.
