  1. That's still quicker than I get somethings done around the house!
  2. That's what I thought, thanks for the confirmation Alan. Yes, I wish there was more info on the wheel 'shape' (rib size) on a lot of sites.
  3. G'day All When manufacturers give wheel sizes, for example say 16.8 x 8.5, is the diameter the central rib (bigger diameter) or the outer "rim" (smaller diameter) size? Cheers, Shaynus
  4. Thanks for that Paul, funnily enough, they were pretty much the ideas we thought up too! (Great minds and all that )
  5. Need to draw on the RC collective brains trust for a friend. Is it possible for someone to compete in the heats that decide the finals ('C' main, 'B' main, 'A' main etc), but then not compete in the finals, but the finals can run as normal with that person removed from the list? (As if they were never there) I hope that makes sense! Cheers, Shayne
  6. Replace the whole car with a piece of lead? It will probably go just as well!
  7. Doh! Totally forgot about magnets! Our local track Isn't magnabraid so magnets don't have any effect, apart from ballast, so didn't even cross my mind...sigh...a bit embarrassing, sorry! I remember last year an o/s competitor having a dig at us Ozzies not reading the rules in regards to wheels, and now I'min the same camp - oh, the shame! At least I'll be starting in my usual position! (Walks off, hanging head in shame...)
  8. Can you start now? I need as big of a head start as I can get!
  9. Can't be many cars left to arrive now can there?
  10. Welcome rastas Will be great to see some of your 3D printing stuff. Always good to see slot car related stuff, but anything is good! There are several proxies on here that are generally run annually
  11. G'day Mark Welcome to the forum. Always good to see new arrivals. Keen to see some pics of your setup. There is a thread around here somewhere that explains how to do it. Stay safe, hope the lockdown / restrictions pass ASAP
  12. Old Man by name, old man by nature!
  13. Nah - if I Finish up that close, I'll be happy! (But don't tell him that!)
  14. More important is to make sure that in the results list that "Old Man" is below "Shaynus" ! (I might need some help with that one...)
  15. That is very rough. Ship it over and then sell it over here when finished!
  16. s#!t, hope we aren't racing for pink slips otherwise I'll never see my car again!
  17. I'm sure there would be lots of potential homes here in Oz (mine for example), but the tyranny of distance (4000 or so km in my case) is a big hurdle (and cost!) to overcome
  18. That's ok, I haven't washed mine at all! Was my 1st (and only!) attempt at weathering... Only needs a clear rear window to be able to see your car...
  19. The outside = SCX, The inside = SUSS Engineering (me!), although there is a clue on the box...
  20. Looks like it will fit in the removalist's truck just fine to me!
  21. Old Man's and my cars went in the post today Presentation counts for points, right?
  22. Mine probably weighs that much...before I put the motor in!
