Excellent! Just gotta bolt on a couple of power taps and give the track a vac and braid a clean and good to go. Nathan and I will test run all lanes to ensure everything is fine and lay a bit of rubber. Can't wait!!!!

I will be there, and the $10 thing is good with me. Though we should place a ban on you racing on your own track along with Nathen untill the round is over, otherwise your going to clean us up Shane. :rofl:

 

YOu never know Rob! I "may" have a shocker. The thing abouty the home tracks this year - adds a little spice to the tuning mix. I doubt all setups will work at all tracks - might explain why I go so badly everywhere else :rolleyes:

 

Either way it will be FUN........yay

Aaaaah, like, Duh! :unsure::unsure:

 

Can we get confirmation as to what's the deal, as you've got the first Home Track round? (Set a precedent)

Was it $10 to cover BBQ...

And just how big was that garage fridge?


Cheers,

Dick

Moe, I doubt you've got anything to worry about mate!

6am it is! I'll be ready! :lol: You know me Moe, the more I drink the better I get! Rob, I'll check with the boss, but should be cool! Shed/beer fridge is nice and icy cold and will hold quite a few frothies! :angry:

 

I installed the first power tap yesterday and the difference was immediately obvious. Red, Blue and White all run perfect, 1 more tap into green and a go over with shellite will have it running strongly. We better get some practise (practise drinking :lol: ) in on all lanes. For those of you who don't know, Moe only ever drives on blue, so is beatable on 3 others :P:P:P:lol:

 

woohoo....can't wait

 

and yeah $10, we'll keep it as though it's a "commercial" venue, the difference being you will get fed and drinks (not grog). The remainder money will go into a "pot" for prizes (have to speak to my slot car pimp bout that - got ideas :o )

Shaping up to be a good round fellas.... can't wait!

 

oooooo yeah :huh:

should be a great day, but the v8's will suck on shane's track, well the v8's we run

if we could put mjk's on the lowerd car's would be a lot better, they run really well on his track

stock car mjk's not too bad but still slow, lowerd with stock tyer's even worse, but still should be a good day's race'n

Wasn't the V8 tyre rule put in to keep the stock and lowered cars even for closer racing.

we put the track through its paces last night til about 2am, raced all lanes and the lack of "rubber down" on thr red and green is bad but got better as we raced. Will give the track a good clean and she'll be ready to go, woohoo this weekend!

yep, its hard driving them here - stock tyres are slippery and stock with MJK's is a slow process

Hmmm... sounds like someone's trying to de-rail our set ups boys... better bring one of each!

 

We're all in the same boat, but you've got home track on your side... what if the voltage is turned down a tad, just to help the poor marshalls?

Are the stock tyres still slippery with rubber down, would have thought they would start to grip up at least a bit eventually. Maybe try a 45 ohm controller to feed the power on a bit smoother.

 

Not all cars work well on all tracks, thats just part of the fun of racing on different tracks and trying to get the best out of what you have.

Problem solved, the rules say the cars are to be box stock which would mean this is now a magnet class as there is nothing in the rules to say remove the magnet.

That's a good point Chris!

Obviously overlooked... well Shane, what do you think? Do we run mag or no mag?

(Running mag might be OK marshall wise.... do we see on the day?)

hmmm, I think mags may make it too easy to drive? Yeah must have overlooked that one! I'll check it out and see how they go. So in saying that we could run eith mod or stock with mag, that way the mod cars would probably dominate being lower.
