Re: HSC 2019 Retro Series Rnd 3 - STR 06/04/2019

Good report as usual Stoo, and thanks for the kind words. It was an enjoyable night with good guys playing with our toy cars. I caught myself out with the F1 by not checking the rear tyres, and needing to throw a new pair on. Should have been ok, but I didn't notice untill after about the 3rd bracke...

Re: Australian Slot Car Publications

I've been slowly tinkering away at this project and have finally scanned all 13 issues of Australian Slot Car Review, with 3 being formatted and uploaded.

Australian Slot Car Magazines

More will be uploaded as I get time.

Many thanks to Tony Anderson for providing the magazines for scanning.

Re: Approved Bodies List for 2019

I had a chat with James at HSC tonight, and the approved body lists on the HSC website are the ones to be used for all HSC events. James did agree that there is no list for Coupes, and I asked about there being no Parma bodies listed in the HSC Can-Am or F1 regs, although he is selling them, and tha...

Re: Drivers have your say

Brad, I agree, usually the 'best' racers usually prevail. Those guys who do all the testing, adjusting, and re-testing seem to have all the luck, eh!! I like the handout motor idea, and have participated in a few races where the motors were very even overall. Some start off a bit slower than others,...

Re: Drivers have your say

Seeing as I needed a sit down for a rest, I thought I'd re-read this thread to see if my thoughts had changed, and the only thing that came to mind, is to suggest 'hand out' motors for enduro's and major events. Also, seeing as James (or any SSME guys) have not chipped in, has any of this discussion...

Re: Approved Bodies List for 2019

Please don't turn this thread into a Ti22 debate. Or any other body type for that matter. That was not the intent of it. We just need a workable Approved Body list for HSC events. Neil, I agree that there are many bodies listed, that are no longer available. That list was compiled more than 10 years...

Re: Approved Bodies List for 2019

Brad, sorry I don't follow!! What are you referring to? The point of me starting this thread, is to try and determine what bodies I can use at HSC. From Mark's race reports, it looks to be like the HSC "Approved Body List" isn't being observed with races at HSC. And my being out of the sce...

Re: Approved Bodies List for 2019

Hi Mark, thanks for your response, and yes, I'm hoping to run as much Retro as I can this year. It appears that some of those (IRRA or SCRRA) bodies have been used at HSC, but don't appear to be on the HSC list. Also, I don't see any approved bodies for Can-Am Coupe?!? :shock: Hi James Colefax, can ...
