Re: Drivers have your say

Spot on Brad - pretty much aligning with my thoughts.

I still like Qualifying for the big races however as a method to ‘seed’ the entrants into respective races as I mentioned above. I reckon everybody’s fun is enhanced by racing against similar levels of speed/experience.

Re: Drivers have your say

OZ said - in italics. My response in bold text - here goes. So let’s start and talk about what we would like to happen with our racing, I will start with what I would like to see happen. So it sounds like some people don’t like racing on the big track at HSC, if we are going to lose racers , can rac...

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

I think its more satisfying to come home " With a Wet Sail" You know Brad I could not agree more - to start out fast and then just die like Stoo and I did at the last SSME Enduro with our motor just lying down was awfull and left a bad taste as opposed to really sticking it in for the las...

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

Thanks Stoo

Great race guys and an excellent report Stoo.

Congrats to OZ who just ran amok by the looks of things.

Must say I like the look of Shalin car.

Can't wait to get back and mix it up with you all at HSC in Nov for Round 1 of NSW Title's - see you then.

Re: Front Wheels

OK Let's bring it back a step here. I also only want to race on the small track as a preference with these type of cars as well as do others. We need to get together and work on this and find a solution rather than going off in a hissy like some may have. Let's get together as drivers after the next...

Re: Front Wheels

Hey Neil,

Which bit took so long - getting back to it or enjoying it?

Yeah I am fully in favour of not running on the big track - Two straights connected by crash zones is not my idea of a fun night :?

Re: Front Wheels

Hi Guys Let's keep it real here. Rules say NO BALL BEARINGS. I asked who is using and winning with them after allegations from Oz. Short answer - nobody is winning with them (as per Oz response) and we have no indication of who is using them - except that they (whoever they are) are not winning! Are...

Re: Luddenham 4 Hour Enduro

And to complete the picture it is a 4 hour enduro over 6 lanes.

By my primary school arithmetic that makes 6 brackets of 45 mins with a driver change at 22.5 minutes.

Happy to help out here :lol:

Good luck to ya all.
