I am planning to come down again,
Details are the same as last week except i have shelved the X-6 in favour of the B4, so you can put me in as a B4 driver, see if i can join the close racing battle of Alistair and Dave.

Good man! Quite a few 4WD boys this weekend :)

I just need to replace some shot bearings.. Cat SX doesn't come with ceramic bearings by default.. Not impressed.

Matt-h
20-11-2009, 06:40 PM
why would you want ceramics?

Get cheap ones and lob them in the bin every couple of meetings - especially this time of year.

Was there much interest in running a championship series over the winter? perhaps just one of the sundays a month dedicated to a series. just a thought!!!

I have provisionaly booked in Mike but I will see in the morning, the weather is set to be very wet and it is a 45 min drive for me.

it's good so many people are saying they will be there, I will watch the local news and weather to night but it does not look good.

well I wonder how many people turned out today? it is hammering it down here (10.37) and with the heavy rain we had last nite the track must be a lake by now!:(

oh well I have more work to do on my car anyway so not a great loss.........

kettle has just boiled.........cuppa time

wylie
22-11-2009, 11:22 AM
Weather started out dry but we had a very large downpour and racing was called off, the track was in very good shape even after all the rain we had and ten minuets with a broom and squeegy and most of the standing water was gone. Approx ten peaple turned up today

mikeyscott
22-11-2009, 11:49 AM
Indeed what Wylie said..

We are planning on do a work party to do some more drainage near race control.

Otherwise all the new PT runners ran with the new system without any problems

Just need to get the speaker system sorted

More like a week cleaning it up and 5 minutes to prep :(

Just stripped all the bearings out and put some oil on them. Will clean then when I come back home later.

Fried speedo today, really need some advice on what to do. i currently have a novak 6.5t light motor, now do i buy a new speedo 120 (GTB) or shall i buy the losi combo for 133 with 6.5t motor or open to other sugestions

mikeyscott
22-11-2009, 05:08 PM
Ouch, was that water damage? Tekin RS Pro from US?

You could get a combo with a different wind motor? Dibble uses the Losi I think?

wylie

Took esc apart (terrible smell) no moisture at all inside the only part that was wet was the switch!!!

Hi

odd, looked like it ran well to that point. Is it repairable?

I use the Losi 6.5 and bought it as a combo. I would recomend this to anyone looking at going brushless.

6.5 is plenty the esc is pre programed with an easly selectable off road setting. :thumbsup:

if your switch got wet then a low voltage short circuit feedback might have made the speedo go pop............

Could be worth stocking up on. Cleaning bearings is a chore :(

Thanks Gripper :lol:.
I've now ordered the Losi 6.5 speedo.
may enquire if it's repairable, most things today are throw away though:thumbdown:

So with a one round meeting, who have I got to look out for next week, I heard a B44 was quick????????

Also some work on the track would not go a miss, I suggest we get a date or a convient time that we all do the work.
My best idea would be at this time of year to do the work prior a meeting, then run the meeting an hour or two later, basically this avoids people disapearing at the end of the meeting and being left with just a few. The saying is many hands make light work. Just some spades and musles. :rolleyes:

Reasonable????????????

22-11-2009, 07:50 PM
I'd agree with the above comments.

I'll post the times up later although only one round :(

I was running a B44 but did'nt last the distance not sure if another one was there, it felt quick, but things always seem to go well just before they go BANG

I had fun, i have shelved the X-6 and undid the conversion and put the B4 back on track, it was set up very sweet. Such a shame the rain stopped play.
Work party is fine by me, i have over an hours drive to get there so as long as we still get 5 heats of racing after it , i'm in.
