Re: Its not fair

The SSME track was the largest of two tracks built in 1967 by Roy Summersby, for a commercial venture at Woy Woy on the New South Wales central coast. The Woy Woy centre closed in the early 1970's when the slot car boom died, and the tracks were disposed of. The small track went to Boy's Town, Engad...

Re: Flux

Yeah, that's where I began as well, then finally decided to ask the friendly Bunning's employee who didn't know either, but seeing as I had the printout to prove it existed in the store somewhere, he looked it up on the confuser and found it.
He was surprised to see it there...

Re: Flux

Neil, I just got back from Bunnings @ Bankstown, and they had "Bakers" soldering fluid on the shelf, and I found it in the plumbing section. 30-50% Zinc Chloride, <10% Ammonium chloride. Dunno what that means!!! :shock: It's not genuine Bakers flux, but branded as "Bakers", "...

Re: Flux

I usually get Bakers from Bunnings.
If they are out of stock in your closest store, go to their "special order desk", give them the "I/N: 5060192" and they should be able to get it in for you.
That reminds me, I gotta get some too!!

Great report Mark and congrats on taking out the title.

While I've missed many rounds, I'd also like to thank James for being there for us and providing the great track and facility for us to race on.

Re: RACE REPORT - SSME 4 Hour Retro CanAm Enduro

Our day began well with a lucky lane draw for the first bracket putting us on White, allowing us to get the 'hard' lanes out of the way early, and things got better from there. Apart from losing a couple of body pins at different tim...
