Re: HSC 2019 Retro Series Rnd 5 - STR 08/06/2019

I think you may find that with you guys going on and on about the small track preference for Retro, it has driven a few racers off Retro. I know it wasn't deliberate but it may be interpreted as a back hander to those who prefer the large track.

Re: Concerns Re:- Lindsay Byron

Thanks Stoo, I am glad Lindsay is on the mend. :mrgreen: The initial rumours where quite concerning. Lindsay is an slot car icon. I remember seeing Lindsay at just about every National event I went to since the 70's. Ironically I always thought he was a Victorian until recently....weird. :?: regards...

Re: Approved Bodies List for 2019

Hi Steve,

I note that the Retro bodies I have bought from James are NOT on any approved list !!

But I assume bodies sold by James will not be a problem.

How the hell can anyone tell the difference between the 47 different types of Ti22 bodies? :mrgreen:

Re: NSW Retro Titles Round 2 (BTR) 24/11/2018

Maybe points could be awarded each race, accumulating in an "Old Fart" trophy at the end of the year. I should get one point for turning up for tonight's race last Friday. I believe Casey did the same thing and he's not even a qualified senior yet! In think we need some rules on what const...

Re: New DiFalco Genesis 2

Hi Stoo,

I noticed that thread this morning as well. Nice job.

Yeah TO-3 packaged transistors are becoming rarer and more expensive. Looks like there are 2 plastic packaged transistors in parallel.

Re: Race Report. SRC Round 7 SSME

Hi guys, My understanding is the SRC series adopted James's existing GP1 rules. I don't really know why, but I assume it was for convenience. :?: I would guess, James's GP1 rules were written for his club racing and other state and National events and were intended as a cheap, base entry class. I ca...

Re: Race Report. SRC Round 7 SSME

Let's not turn this into a storm in a tea cup. :shock: The situation was handled properly on the night. Problem found, a few discussions, a solution found! :D What we should be talking about is the race. I have never seen two guys as pumped at the end of a race as Troy and Richard were. It was good ...

Re: SRC Round 4 Hornsby

Once he learns to slow down he will do 190 laps That would be some effort - assuming getting across the line for a 'Bell' Lap - the remaining 189 laps equates to an average across ALL lanes of 5.08 sec a lap! That would be some effort ;) You guys must be physic! :lol: Cody cruising round doing 4.7'...
