  1. Yep there are some great memories and great pics Pat. Love the classic nascar line up. I really need to get that 55 chevy up and running again I really didn't want the black widow track to end this way and it was a very hard decision that I had to make. Circumstances dictated that it needed to go one way or another, unfortunately it came to the another
  2. Yes it is Mac It was a very very hard decision for me to make but as there wasn't anyone in club that could take it, it just had to happen in order for me to move on with other plans Given that my shed is no longer a slot cave I will pass the piebone trophy onto Pedro as he is another holder of the title from the last piebone400 Peter, I will drop it into you one day during the week on my way passed
  3. The Blackwidow raceway track is no more Tuesday night Wednesday night Friday night
  4. I am still not feeling the grove yet. But I will be back if you are wondering
  5. Don't wait for me to start the legend series guy's I will probably be a while away, still haven't got the racing feeling back yet
  6. The track measurements are 4950L x 2800W (at widest point down far end) x 2250W (for the rest)
  7. Richard was saying that there was some discussion about my track blackwidow raceway at Pat's last night Here is a pic of it for those who haven't seen it https://imgur.com/a/NPGLYV3 I will measure it on Saturday and post here If anyone is keen on it I am willing to let it go reasonably cheap if it keeps it in the club But I can't hold onto it for to long as I need the space in the shed
  8. sounds good to me Mac, I know how great he is at tuning as for the Legends series I probably won't be around for the start but a great idea so don't worry about me might as well give someone else a chance to win
  9. I haven't really been feeling the love of racing lately so I have decided to take a break for a bit Also As I haven't used my track in quite some time now and not seeing it happing anytime soon, I am seriously considering moving it on, either complete or I will dismantle it and sell the computer, trakemate and wiring. I would like to use the space for something new If anyone in club is interested in either option hit me up
  10. I am out this week hurt my leg yesterday and still a bit sore so don't feel like standing on it any longer than I have to
  11. Getting rid of all that crappy wire and plug is a given in my book What is the best fitting guide as the standard one would have to be the worst fitting one I have ever seen
  12. I saw some pretty slick racing from J2theK with the ex-crockett racing Falcon V8 supercar last night
  13. have got a Legend already after doing a deal with Hotrod I have the black & gold Smokey's #13 what are the rules for these cars I need to know what ones to push & break in true Smokey's style
  14.

  15. you are always going to get one model in a class that will be better than the others guy's that are interested in winning or at least being at the pointy end will almost always go for that model I am like Chas and prefer to go for something different or the model I like more as in the real car if I can I am not sure there is a easy solution to making the different models more even as there are also other factors in place like driver ability, quality of car tuning etc. how about a build/tune at the venue on that weekend, that might help take the advantage the local guy's have with being able to test and tune their cars on the track that the event is being held on, that will still favor the better car tuners and drivers but eliminates the advantage of long testing and fine tuning times on the track by the locals and maybe team the better tuners with others, each team member tunes there own car but it is a group effort with every team member helping each other to get the best car they can when you have that time pressure even the better model can not run as well as the other models
