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 ...

Approved Bodies List for 2019

Happy New Year... Hi all, I'm wanting to re-body some of my cars, and I'm looking at the HSC "Approved Body" list, and don't see some of the bodies that racers appear to have been using. So I checked with the IRRA® Website, seeing as where that's where we developed our rules from 10+ years...

Re: Race Report. SRC Round 7 SSME

Greg, the SRC was instigated by HSC, so it was logical that the HSC regs be used.

Re: Race Report. SRC Round 7 SSME

Shaker tubes are loose fitting pin tubes on a chassis. When the body is fitted to the chassis with pins, the tubes can move (shake), providing movement to the body. Check out the scratchbuilt F1 chassis in this post. The same thing can be done with flexi chassis, by drilling out the body clip holes ...

OK, that appears to apply only to GT1, and not Aussie Retro Can Am.
