Re: 2016 Worlds, Germany.

To confirm Mark's post, this race definitely didn't happen. JPVR went quiet on it about a month after announcing it and never mentioned it again. I was personally very disappointed, because it is the first time (for me, anyway) that he has failed to come up with the goods. In the meantime, JPVR's la...

Re: NSW State Titles Round #3 - HSC Flat Track

Thanks very much for the race reports, Mark, and congratulations on your wins. It was obviously a very competitive series indeed! Kudos to all the guys in NSW who supported the series.

I wish I lived in NSW... (Not really, but a championship like this would be so much fun. You are all very lucky indeed).

Re: 2016 Worlds, Germany.

I agree, Mark Fox would DEFINITELY deserve an entry. Whether he would register on the JP radar, though, is another issue! There are many great racers from around the world vying for his attention. I'm glad that Wayne and Cody are up for it, because they'll make us Aussies a real force to be reckoned...

Re: 2016 Worlds, Germany.

It seems to be Facebook only for info. I agree, it would be good to have a solid Australian contingent there. Hey Wayne, are you guys up for it?

Re: 2016 Worlds, Germany.

It is early stages yet, and the format of the races and the racers attending will no doubt evolve. But JPVR has a long history of making these events happen, and they are always an incredible amount of fun. Currently, he wishes to see Wayne, Cody and me racing for Australia. Hopefully Wayne and Cody...

Re: Ball Bearings - Axle thoughts

There seems to be a pretty consistent theme here! For sure, BB result in better gear mesh and durability in the higher power/speed cars on King Tracks. However, nobody seems to be having any problem with oilites (or bushings) in their Retro. That makes sense, since we run lower power motors and use ...

Stu, I think you might be right. It ain't broke, and there may indeed be no need to fix it.

Re: Ball Bearings - Axle thoughts

I think it's a good idea. BB are easier to set up, and much longer lasting. I really don't understand why we've persisted with bushings for such a long time.

Big Thumbs Up.

Sorry I can't be there, guys. Sucks for me, but I have to take care of Claire on Saturday.

What can I say, except.... Bugger!

Re: Entry Level Wing Cars

Would it also help to restrict gear ratios to 9:43 or equivalent? They should still be fast enough, but the motors will last longer. Good idea, though. I have said it before: Wing 12 is not a beginner class. It is a very difficult and challenging class indeed, and something more accessible is most d...
