Re: 2018 Retro Nats Race report & pics

Thanks Stoo, Great report. Thanks for the compliment on the CanAm. You are correct about the F1 situation. I have the same problem as you, building a new a new chassis that goes slower than the original. Just had nothing resembling traction. Knowing Slot cars if you are having problems in the back, ...

Thanks again for your efforts in doing these reports.
Good night of racing as usual, looking forward to next week. We should get a good turn out. Got the iron on for a new F1.
One word for Cody - AWESOME!

Re: SRC Round 4 Hornsby

Mmmmmmmmm ......... 6 Hour Enduro. I am warming up to it. If you run multiple classes the calendar is becoming very crowded. Maybe replace one of the existing 4 Hour dates with a 6 Hour could work. I know! Make it an F1 race and I’ll drive with Cody. I’ll do about 10 minutes and leave the rest to Co...

Re: Race Report - SRC 2018 Round 4 - HSC

Hi Greg
I was thinking x24 but my fingers were typing 25.
The chassis that you measured -
Different chassis?
Body thickness?
Who was lightest?
Did you use James Scale?
Stop spying and start building!

Oops .....
Had another look at the pics. My apologies to Wayne Baxter. The photo shows his sled and well placed Second in the heat, not Wayne Bramble.
Too many Wayne’s ......

Re: Race Report - SRC 2018 Round 4 - HSC

Thanks once again for your reports Mark. Makes me even sorrier that I missed it. Unbelievable lap totals in both races! Congrats to the winners. To answer Greg - They are all JK’s Wayne, Casey and Cody all ran Aeolus. They are proving to be very handy, including mine, after Casey tuned the front for...

Re: Aussie Retro Nats 2018

Yes it should be fun.
Combined with Steve’s post about the 10 year anniversary of Retro, maybe some of the original racers could have a reunion at this years National.

Re: Race Report for HSC 4 Hour Enduro (2018 #2)

Thanks for your efforts in putting this report together. Pity that the numbers were not greater, but pairing with Brad was fun and the whole day was stress free. The analysis of the splits is very interesting. The two top teams were very close in laps and times. Brad went home with a sore back after...

Re: English Culture

Yep ...... you gotta love the guys accent.
Casey and Shalin use a similar method. No chance of wire getting under the chassis.
If you come down for the SRC this week check it out.
