You'll be pleased to know the 'cheating' has already started..

 

.. I bought a proslot car that was absolutely rubbish.. so I went back to Jurgen's and he laughed at my thinking it was broken & showed me what I should do to set a car up properly..

 

.. be afraid guys - I'm bringing weapons racing now.. Luke's testing them for me as we speak..

 

..who else but the 'Ferrari' of slot racing dogs can afford to employ a professional test driver hey?? :P;)

Nah - it was actually simple. Where to glue, where not to glue - what to grease and what to oil..

 

..how to run the car in..

I've never been shown or told what/how to tune properly. Just took the mags out and put lead where I thought it might need it, I'm sure there's improvements I could make, but until I'm shown...I'll make do. I always oil my cars, drop on the motor, axles etc. I use a syringe - the chemist probably thought I was a junkie when I asked for one ;):P:lol:

Gref the tuning stuff isn't too hard depending on how far you want to go. Glue the motor true the wheels, if your feeling adventerous add a drop of glue on top of the bearing so that the bearing sticks to the chasis and does not spin with the axle. Make sure you don't glue the axle that kinda slows things down.

 

Here is a good article for tuning just about everything

Car tuning plastic cars

 

Good luck see you on Saturday sounds like the competition is getting serious ;)

Lucky buggers! I have no testers. Looks like I'm going to get flogged.

 

Don't worry Freddy, I've got no testers, no weight and no tuning, bout the only thing done is the oiling of bearings and gears. Not even sure the cars I'm bringing are fully run in yet ;)

 

We can keep each other company at the back of the pack. :lol:

 

hmmmm we will see....but lets not talk it up now

 

Keep the talk coming I say, should make for some good sledging come Saturday.

 

Hey Freddy, do you think Ged will mind me bringing 2 of my pit crew along? They may be a little too young at 8 & 10 to leave home.

I don't think he'd mind but he may not let them drive the track.

 

Ah but gref, it is the planning and effort which makes it all the better and gives you a sense of satisfaction. Why do you think I organised this social session?

 

P.S. We haven't even had the race yet and this thread already has 116 replies. How much pre-talk do we want to have? This could go well beyond the 200 mark because Eno, gref and I can waffle on for a while. Remember Dandenong? We sat up for ages talking about footy, gref's track, Eno's track, F1 and whatnot!

Ok fand of

 

I have been out spending my millions on grease and oil and a variable wallwart and have the cars running in properly as we speak..

 

.. I also got the new magnets from the US in the mail last night to install.. not certain I'll get the time to install them though. I think they're nickel iridum oxide or something? Can't be buggered going back to the fixing desk. Anyhow - they're known as "Grass" magnets if you wish to look them up.. cool cool things.

 

Am I allowed to upgrade the guide shoe to a Ninco number?? I just like 'em!!

 

Hey Freddy - I've had a better search and want to run my MRRC "Essex Wire" Cobra (elkhart lake - sept '65 - came third) which I believe was invited to LM. Otherwise I need to prep either my Scaley GT 40 I forgot about (yawnsville) or the Fly Porsche Carrera six from '66 which is going to be a REAL Drama for time..

John, I've talked to Ged before and he was happy to have a racing day for the kids on the holidays if we can get enough together... I'd imagine his worry would be "do they have enough to do for a couple of hours".

 

Unfortunately my boys are off with their 'father' this weekend or I'd bring them too though!

Wow - I somehow replied before I answered the post !! ;):lol::P

Remember what I said Eno, if you have a Le Mans car, run it. Only run a car from another race if you don't have any Le Mans cars or have Le Mans cars that doesn't perform properly. Also remember that the car has to be stock (except for weight).

 

As for me I will be running my GT40 as it is the only 60's Le Mans car I have. I will be running it as it is. No changes in tyres and no weight added. The only thing I've done is taken the magnet out. I honestly expect to get killed tomorrow as you guys seem to have gone to some great effort to get your cars ready. I didn't expect you to.

Porsche is a none runner - it sucks!

 

I'm actually running in the dull dull dull GT40 despite being conviced that the cobra ran at LM.. I know a number of them did - I'm off looking for prooof! :o

 

John - all I'm doing is lubricating and running in the cars! ;)

 

Oh - and assessing the "grass" magnets..
