V32 Championship Round 4 - Discussion

Recommended Posts

Another round is upon us and this time we are racing V8's, JGTC and F1. Remember that all crash and burn events are now two minutes long.

 

I hope to see lots of people there like last time.

 

Now get preppin'!


Cheers,

Frederick

Is increasing numbers and time going to fly with Ged?? Methinks not.

 

I have the little guy with me this weekend and would be willing to come along only as a fat marchall for a while if that's what you need buddy.

Mate I'd bring the boys along, think the missus would be happy with them knocking around with their dad.

 

I may be late if I make it at all, gotta be at a photo studio in Waverly rd for family pics @ 11:30 so could be a struggle. Gonna prep some cars anyway.

 

Gref, hope your missus is ok & nothin too serious.

mrs has got severe asthma, on oxygen hard to breath, but as Moe said tonight I might ask my mum if she can watch them if she's still in. I'd bring em, but at 1 and 3, I don't think Ged would appreciate them getting into everything! My 3 year old loves cars though and has his own SCX Ferrari, he might be ok, but his talking (doesn't stop) would drive us all crazy. But then again he may put everyone of their race and I drive to victory!! :lol:;)

Thats a hard one! Stay and comfort the wife when she's at her sickest, and look after the kids, or come play slotcars.

 

 

I know what i'd do.

Well it's looking very much in favour of me not coming now :haha:

 

Got an earfull from mother in law bout priorities and family and that sorta crap, then she was in my ear bout priorities, can tell you now - Freddy - NEVER GET A GIRLFRIEND!!! They will only happily empty your pockets and bank account/add to stress levels/whinge etc etc

 

At exploding point! :lol: I even dug out another F1 that's better than the renaull from last round (which seems to be very loud and slow now, maybe motor issue there), dug out older V8 that seems faster here, the 350z I ran last round has a rear axle issue so it's outta action, but got 3 others ready to step up......

 

There's so many naughty words I could use to explain how I feel, if she didn't smoke there would be no issue! :lol:

 

I guess I can only sit here and pray for a miracle :( :lol:

 

They just don't understand slot car racing! :ph34r:

Mmmm, looks like you'd better stay and do what you gotta do there Shane.

(Damn, he was doing so well in the C'ship too.... :P )

Just jokes mate.

 

I'm sure she'll appreciate you staying with her through this mate, and you'll be rewarded with many free time bonus points.

 

Will Moe venture down on his own then?


Cheers,

Dick

I know it's a social thing, but I feel like crying :P:P

 

bonus points better be worth it!

 

Was talking to Eno and he said he's going to be up here again the weekend after long weekend, so maybe we should plan a big race day/beers/bbq etc

I'm having a terrific evening at the moment. I got home to find that the 10 yo put my beer glass in the fridge when he did the dishwasher this morning (now that's attending to detail).

 

The older boys are over at their Dad's place and the missus is out at her 'craft' group with the girls so tonight it's just me and little Richard. (Amazingly he's over five months old now. Inconceiveable!) Anyway - Richard's singing and laughing and apparently telling jokes (Garble garble garble AAAArggle A ha ha ha ha!!)

 

Anyway - I'm pottering about on the web with all the cars I need for tomorrow sitting on the desk while I cut / clean / oil stuff up. NOne of my cars are going to be weighted any more 'cause I found out that lead's not only bad for you but it's made of Carbon and grease and we all know about those greenhouse grasses that people get arrested for (..but occifer - I'm sure they were Tomatos when I planted them) Actually ask me about the senior coppers house and the tomatos we planted in his yard one day..

 

Anyhow - Anyway - Anystuff - I'm having a whale of a time - there's a beer, there's a singing baby and there's cars to tinker with.. but there's no lead and bluetack so I'm going green and moving to "lead free" racing cars.. :(

 

It's a hard life but someone has to do it. :mosh:

Hey Doggy, what will you use instead??

I know you can get a bit of weight in a soiled nappy, but I reckon the CoG might be a bit out of whack....

Would look like something Chevy Chase would drive in "Slot Car Vacation".... :mosh:

Hmmm, will have to work on the 5 y/o!!!!

 

See you this arvo.

Dick

Have a good day fellas, even if I was able to make it, I'd be in zombie mode as I only got 4 hours sleep last night and had bugger all this week, plus I think it's my turn to be sick (I'd still race if on my last legs though :( )

 

Still feel like crying coz I can't come and play :mosh:

You woulda loved it buddy - I thought it was teriffic. It appeared like everyone had taken a be happy chill pill like I take (except the bloke across the road that the "Punisher" scowled at) it was truly magnificent though. I actually finally won a race and managed a fastest lap. Way way cool!! :dog:

 

What a bloody good day! :huh:

First into the 3sec barrier during a race Dave. :clap:

 

I couldn't understand why the other (Matt's??) Williams was bouncing insanely and mine wasn't. I had a great day - it was like playing golf on one of those days where the ball looks like a beachball and you can't help but wallop it.. B)B)

 

What I thought was funny was I was finally getting competative with the V8 with cheating tyres 'cause I was thick & put the thing on the wrong car, then I was up with guys with the JGTC where you're allowed to use replacement tyres.. then I was so overconfident I don't think I finished a heat witht eh F1's but damn me it looked brilliant frpom where I stood!!!

This probably makes my other post slightly more relevant?
