Re: Its not fair

PS
Does anyone know what actually happened to Martin?
I have heard plenty of rumours, but does anyone actually know?

Re: Its not fair

This is getting interesting. In my earlier post I mentioned the banked track becoming worn in the 70's. I was actually thinking the 80's but my geriatric fingers found the 7. My memory of events is pretty clear, but I am finding that I am getting the timing wrong. So take my recollections as approxi...

Re: Its not fair

Hi gang, What is the actual date that HSC opened? Was it ever located in Hornsby? I have often wondered why it was called Hornsby when it is in Waitara? My family moved to Hornsby in 1964 and the Centre was opened then and yes Stoo that big 10 lane absolutely nothing resembling a bank track was a th...

Re: Flux

Still waiting for the Ezi Weld to arrive from Blackwoods............ I the mean time I have had to solder a new pinion onto a new shaft. The Bakers made it hard work. I ended up having to 'rough up' the arm with my Dremel. I have not had to do this with Lucky Bobs acid flux previously. The Bakers se...

Re: Its not fair

Hey gang, Brad - Can I come too. Cant race by yourself!. If I had a King in my lounge room, I would only invite people I can beat ........ oh wait I would be racing by myself. I guess I would own all the track records. Fox - We do look forward to reading your reports and are very grateful for you an...

Re: Have you seen

The Ronnie and Ralphie Radio Show !!
Yes, there is a lot of good info to be had. I normally skip the first 10 min of race results. The variations in the Hawk Retro gets a workout.
Have a look at Hershmans 'how to' videos as well, good stuff.

Re: 2018 Australia Day Classic (ADC)

Thanks Fox,
Top report!
Any ideas on getting the numbers up?
I think I must have squeezed Jame's hand too hard when receiving the concourse trophy !!
Cheers

Re: Bull Ring

I'm in.
I think a STR style car would be fun. F1 and CanAm. No Retro Hawks.

Re: Flux

I have used Lucky Bobs for a while and thought it is good. The Bakers I purchased recently seems pretty good as well. Looking forward to the Ezi Weld that Stoo recommends, when it arrives and I am going to Bunnings again to try the Acid suggested by David. It makes sense to use acid for acid flux. I...

Re: Flux

Thanks Steve
I was actually looking in the area where they sell soldering irons, not in the plumbing section. Will try again tomorrow.

Re: Flux

Hi Stoo, Thanks for the info, let me know what compensation for the flux. Will you be at the ADC? I thought I asked James previously and he said he couldn't get any. Thats why I started getting some from PCH. I was just surprised that industrial suppliers were reluctant to stock the product. I was t...
