Central Coast Drivers ?

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys just wondering if theres any cetral caost guys out there

 

Ive just set up a 50foot 4 lane artin layout with PC laptiming and its lonely old highway driving on it by myself

 

I have made it reasonable mobile and I am hoping to do some party hire with it

 

I've yet to get all my mates hooked in but I've got a few endurance races planned to sort that out

my lemans timing software with fuel stops should help

 

Anyway check out my pics and let me know what you think

 

Maybe we can line up a drive

Central Coast and Artin -- you hit the daily double, RePete. You'll get a few replies, no fear of that, there's quite a group here from your area.

 

Welcome.

Hey badbilly

 

I live at toukley so I'm about 45 mins from you

 

I am using both laptimer 2000 for general timing and racing and the Lemans software from the S.P.T.S guys in canada

 

A simple microswitch on the printer port socket allows me use both programs without changing cables

 

The sensors are phototransistors placed in the track with a light gantry over the top seems to work well

 

I just need to sort out some controllers as the std artins really nee less ohms and brakes to drive cars other than artin well

 

when I get this done and I meet a few of you guys online i want to organise some racing maybe even throw in a tenna each and have some prizes or does that sound to competitive

 

Anyway I'll keep in touch and meet someday

By the way I've got the part here to build another sensor interface if you or anyone else is interested

I can build it for whatever timing system you want for about 40 bucks

thanks for the offer RePete but ive just build up a junker puter for my wife... "I never get to used the computer cause u hog it" she says in a nagging voice... so she would KILL me if i then used it to time my slotcars so me thinks its best to stick with my scaley timer for now! Iam mainly interested to see what peoples are doing as ive heard some use a mechanical type switch and others the photosensor.

 

Re chucking in a tenna.. yeah no worries about that but i say we race for beer... and the looser of the race (me) gets the most!!! lol

I'm 5 minutes from the freeway on-ramps at Waitara so the Central Coast is just up the road. If you organise something, definitely let me know please.

 

Cheers

Hi Guys, Rally, myself and Wovtam plus others not on this forum usually get together for a once a month race meeting on the Central Coast. I am planning one for Sunday the 15th August, start around midday and all are invited. I lay on nibbles and drinks and we usually have a fun day. My circuit is on the website (Valleyview Raceway), I know some of you expressed an interest about a month ago when I posted a note on the site, who's up for it? If you can let me know so I can get an idea of numbers and I will post my e-mail address if there is enough interest so that we can tie up the fine details. :D P.S. great looking circuit RePete, would definitely like a run one day.
