Re: HSC 2018 Retro Series Rnd 6 - Big Track (BTR) 7/07/2018

Thanks Mark,
Nice report.
I hope Benno and Brooksy enjoyed themselves enough to come back.
Mathew certainly showed us the way round.

Re: Please Ask The Question

Good advice Brad
Returning to Slot Racing after a 30 year break, I needed help. You and many others were very patient with me.
Cheers

Re: HSC 4 Hour Enduro - Retro CanAm

Stephan,
Richard posted on Facebook his interest in racing this weekend.
Why don’t you call him and talk about running together.

Re: HSC 4 Hour Enduro - Retro CanAm

Yes Brad, leave it all alone.

....... except can we we run blue and green twice and not run purple and black.

That’s all, no more talk about rule changes.

Let’s go racing.

Re: HSC 4 Hour Enduro - Retro CanAm

Ok I’m in
Sharing Brads chair with busted knee.
I asked Shalin to run with me previously, but he has a bucks night to go to in Melbourne.
Brad- with me driving for you, I don’t think we can beat Team Bramble by 100 laps, I think 93 is more realistic.
I will PM my number to you

Re: Race Report - Geoghegan Trophy 2018 (incoporating HSC Retro Series 2018 Rnd #5)

Thanks Mark, Yes for a time I thought I might make the podium, but only just hung onto 4th in CanAm. F1, well I will just block out the memory. I have two Warmack chassis. One I purchased from Wayne as a complete car and Peter Daniels rebuilt for me. The other I built myself. I usually run Wayne mor...

Re: RACE REPORT - 2018 SSME 4 Hour Retro CanAm Enduro #1

Thanks Mark, Great report and interesting analysis. I think it would be safe to say that Daryl led the way in lap times and totals for the Desperadoes. Steve and Kevin certainly smashed the field. It was a very deserved win. Thanks from us to the other teams for allowing us to run in the order we di...

Re: SSME 4 Hour Enduro - Retro CanAm, 3 June 2018.

Sorry to hear about Brad and Daryl. They will be missed.
Team Shalin and Neil are officially named

.................................................... Team Desperados

Shalin will be the one wearing the black Mexican cowboy hat.
I hope the name brings us luck.
Looking forward to Sunday

Re: SSME 4 Hour Enduro - Retro CanAm, 3 June 2018.

Well here we go. Richard has to work on that weekend. Bit of a shame, I am sure we would have had a lot of fun. However ............... Another Phoenix rises to take on the establishment of retro endurance teams. Shalin wants to have a drive, I have car ........ We are in! Shalin, my previous names ...

Re: Race Report - SRC 2018 Round 1 SSME

Hi Trophy
The best guy to answer your question would be Ron Griffin. He is on the committee at Luddenham and looks after the Slot Car track. I am sure he could tell you the dimensions to the last mm.
He is on this forum occasionally, so a PM would be the go.
