Hi Alan,
Thanks to you and Stu for a quick turnaround for the opener. Congratulations to JB Plugger and Phil on the podium spots. I heard that John hada quick car under development a while ago

That bl%dy customer car is still seeing off the works Brokespeed entry :angry:

Not sure If I'm seeing double but are there two John Batich's from Tasmania :huh:

Cheers, Alan

Charles. Hope you had a great night,Syd is not usually short on conversation!
Thsnks to Stubbo and Stu for getting this Round completed. Happy with my result considering it had no development,
No surprise with a Johns car it is bloody quick and easy to drive.
Shame about the “ Mexican” getting between us.
Yes two J.B cars,8 and 88.

Hi Stubbo and all.

I appreciate it is early days but after first round the T1790 motor took first 4 places with the best SRP 16 5th and the top SRP18 7th. The worst placed T1790 was 13th. While not conclusive for the T1790 it seems to suggest as assessed prior to rules finalisation that there is little between the SRP16 (5, 6 ,8, 9, 14, 17 19) and SRP18 (7, 10, 11, 15, 16, 18, 20). Interesting that all 3 types had almost equal entries. T1790 performance though might be just an indication of the quality of the entries/builders.

Not sure what motor Mondeo had but as it blew up it does not matter. If he is allowed to replace however please let everybody know with what.

Regards Chas Le Breton (charlesx)

PS. 1. Up-dated based on correction from sdeamon. His motor is a SRP16 and not T1790 but this does not change my observations.

2. Mondeo's motor details also now known.

Like you Charles was a bit suprised to see the T 1790 take the top 5 spots , i never had the chance to get one of these for testing against my SRP 16 and 18 K motors , which result wise of round 1 was what i expected of the SRP motors , but the T1790 looks to be something a bit better than i have looking at the info from the results. :unsure:

Hey Chas

Thanks Stubbo and SLO1 for getting round 1 done, big congrats to the podium guys,

Fairly happy with my #47 coming in 6th, I sort of knew the car wasn"t quite "there" especially when compared to last years car, but all things considered I'm pretty pleased with it all.

Be good to see some pics of this years lot if thats possible.

I've never been good with a camera.

I do have a couple of shots of the field and the podium getters that I'll put up when I can.

I also have car and chassis shots of all the cars and I'll start a different thread for that.

For those that are unfamiliar, here is the track. The Tasman cars are run on the middle lane which is a basic figure 8 style.

And yes they are old stickers on the front of the stand.

Hi Stubbo.

My car seems to have a habit of qualifying well then failing in the race. It is much slower than when it was fitted with Solabotic motor in 2015/6 but almost equal with SRP16 in 2017. I noticed I finished race 7 places behind my qualifying position. Last year of course I entered T60 Cooper Climax but that car did more than Brabham in any year although was also a bit of a disappointment.

Only difference in car this year was XPG PG tyres but it was still no faster than with Dart tyres fitted in 2017. At home car was extremely consistent with no deslotting or other problems so I will look forward to driving comments. It was very disappointing to see it finish 20 laps behind leaders.

Looks like the transporter has been to West Coast Customs for those wheels!
But still a nice piece of work.

I knew someone would notice that.

I am going to try and make some appropriate inserts. A job for the winter months.

Yep. No rush. I'll think about it, plan it, draw it and make it. Unless I can find something that fits the bill off the shelf.
