Re: RACE REPORT - 2018 SSME 4 Hour Retro CanAm Enduro #2

Some pretty good totals and fast times there from team OZ. Well done.
Congrats to the podium winners.
Looks like all teams racked up reasonable totals, which means no major dramas with cars.
Welcome back to SSME Kenny, what do you think of Aussie Retro?
Thanks, Stoo for the great report.

Re: Front Wheels

It seems like there are no more contributions to the suggestion of running small wheels. Brad, do you think you have an answer to your suggestion? Seems like we have created another suggestion about only running Retro Can Am and F1? on the small HSC track. I would vote for that too. Mainly to save h...

Re: Front Wheels

As far as I'm aware, ball bearings are not allowed anywhere in the car.

Re: Front Wheels

Brad, yeah, I've seen those wheel stickers too, and made comments to the owners, but they said the cars passed tech, one guy took heed and cut the wheel wells out, the other shrugged his shoulders and raced.

Which bodies are the main trouble makers, as far as the front wheels go?

Re: Front Wheels

Neil, Fence sitting = 10/10. Sorry but can't agree with not cutting out the front wheel arches, and going clear to see the wheels. They didn't do that back 'in the day',,,, the days that we are replicating. I know I'm being an old fart stick in the mud, but I would love to retain as much purity of t...

Re: Front Wheels

Brad, the regs have been in use for 10 years, and doesn't appear to have been a concern all that time, plus there are plenty of good bodies that work with the existing wheel size. The rule set was structured around cars that were raced in the USA prior to 1970, hence the Retro tag. The cars built ar...

Garvic Sonic Needle, cool.
You need a running mate for it now.

Re: RACE REPORT - 2018 SSME 4 Hour Retro CanAm Enduro #1

Cool report, piccies and break up of the details Mark. No doubt about it, Kevin was the gun triggerman on the day. Thanks Kevin. Thanks to the SSME guys for a great track, nice and smooth, and suitable grip for the Retro cars. It shows in the increased lap totals, and quicker lap times. Also, thanks...

Re: SSME 4 Hour Enduro - Retro CanAm, 3 June 2018.

My vote is for the 4hrs.

I've got a car club run on the 3rd, but I'll give that a miss.
Kevin is a goer, so Ric's Raiders is in.
