  1. Wishful thinking.................................
  2. After a test run against Paul's car last night, none of you have anything to worry about. His new car was all over the place, and my good old reliable was on fire. Also I have made a pact with the rest of the Canberra guys to help each other to the pointy end of the field. If I know my brother as well as I think I do, he will spend the next 3 months tuning and re-tuning his car until he over tunes it and in frustration falls back on his old car and does OK but not great in the proxy. Let's see what happens.
  3. I'm calling you out on this one. After all you didn't build this car, you bought it at a deceased estate sale on Saturday. And you only paid $15 for it............................................
  4. Well seeing as my car was getting faster and faster, all I am going to do is give it a good service and put it back on the track, I am even going to use the same tyres.
  5. Bring it on, and if you don't add penalties after the first round, it should be interesting
  6. WOW, that was the first track that I built, it's good to know it's still in use. How did it end up in QLD? I sold it to a guy from the south coast.
  7. I hope he pulls through OK, he owes me $130.................................
  8. Well, now that you mention it..............................
  9. You can drop mine off any time you want a cuppa, I'll get Debbie to put the kettle on.
  10. Come on Paul, where are the results? We all want to know who made it to the top 5, lots of very close racing in the mid pack. And the much awaited end of proxy opinions of the cars. And wait until you see the video of my cars first heat, a very funny moment.
  11. I'm one of those V8 freaks, have you seen my 671 supercharged 1955 Chrysler Hemi?
  12. And a footnote, this could be the last time any of us get to race on this track, it is currently up for sale. And Steve is not looking to replace the track, but let's see what we can do with a bit of peer pressure.
  13. There is a bit of brotherly pride on the line for the last race, both Paul and I are tied at 5 wins each, bragging rights for the next year are on the line. My car has come on strong at the pointy end of the proxy, so I am super exited and can't wait until next week.
  14. I told you it was a long proxy, look at my results now.
  15. Yeah don't use sugar soap wipes on a rubbered up track, even if a good friend says it does a good job. It did too good a job, now we have the rubber back on the track.
  16. I fly mode1 suits me just fine. I fly pattern and 3D planes, but not all that well, as I'm sure you can relate. Fly fishing is on the retirement to do list.
  17. Funny you should mention RC aircraft, that is one of my other hobbies as well. I have taken the Dremel to the windows already, and removed as much as I feel safe with.
  18. I tried it without the interior, and yes 0.3 sec faster, so I modified an interior out of another car that was half the weight, and now it's about 0.2 sec faster than before. I've gone from 6.8 secs a lap to 6.6, and I'm happy with that. Cheers Andrew
  19. Yeah I just used the L34 tyres, and they are a good fit, but don't forget to round the outer edges. Good idea on giving it a run without the interior, I'll do that tonight and get back to you.
  20. I just spent the weekend working on mine, first thing that I had to do was true the wheels, one of the rears was terrible. Next the tyres, I fitted MJK rears and zero grips to the front. After trimming the chassis for float, I gave it a few laps, not too bad but needs ballast. Now for the lead ballast, there is plenty of room to add as much as you need. I put about 10gr down each side and 5 right at the back. Now I have it lapping at the times of the rest of my aussie muscle cars, but I think there is more left in it. Next I am going to start to take weight out of the body, there is a lot that can come out without too much trouble. Cheers Andrew
  21. Just for that, I'll see how many times I can crash your car tonight.
  22. I just ordered one, let's see what I can do with it
  23. Yeah, thanks for that.............................................
  24. Keep up with the times, I don't understand this 5 x 15.5, that track is 1800 x 4800.
  25. So far from the 6 tracks we have run on, only 2 were ferradore, this is another one I built and it uses semi gloss. And for interest sakes, I have had a hand in building 3 of the 6, and now this one as well.
