Racing as normal on Sunday, who's in?

Hopefully the numbers will pick up as we've spent a lot of money on kit and so for and it would be nice for a decent turn out.

Yes I know a number of you are hankering after an all day meeting - that'll be April I expect. I also appreciate that the weather this time of year is rubbish.

We are also looking at a couple of track maintenance days after Easter on a Saturday. This is to help us get the track in good shape for the summer to enable some great racing. It will also enable us to consider all day racing more as there are some things such as parking that needs to be sorted out.

If the weather is with us for the maintenance day I could well plug the laptop in to enable some people to practice AFTER track work has been done.

I know its only monday, but i'm busting to get back racing next week. Depending on the tyres i have, i might run in 4WD, if not i'll be test running it after.
Hopefully there will be more people there next week.

I'll be there to do battle if weather is reasonable, X6 seems so much more stable and balanced than the B4, just need to get it set up right and see if the times come down.

Good man, well when I've got my Cougar SV I'll join the 2WD boys a bit more. Pending on numbers I may alternate etc. or something.

I hope to be there as long as not too wet. May be a B4 day for me, unless my D4 Parts arrive

Nothing, the outdrives on the slipper clutch are worn. It's a long story but it made the drive shaft to the rear diff shear off as well:cry:

Dave I thought the days of the D4 are numbered, maybe tune your tranny into my car next week and try my cat? You will not be dissapointed.

The only thing that will stop me racing this Sunday is my current state of man flu.

yep, think i may treat myself to a cat sx 2 this year, but not until later on. The D4 is a good car, probably better now than when i got it, but do like the look of the cat;)

Yeah join the Cat SX club :)

Now is the time to pick up a MK1 bargin, unless you go for a Cat SX S1 which will have the big bore shocks etc

This time i want the latest model and new. I also fancy a build now i have learnt so much. Have to admit i am torn between the sx2 or the S1 version if everything is the same. Those big bore shocks have to be a winner round our track :)

Fair enough :)

As for which one, your call. I think the S1 is a good car too and Simon Moss runs the S1 chassis on his Cat SX from what I have seen as does Mr Brown..

Well Paul, I reckon u will need to clean more than just your Losi after Sunday racing, well one at least, I do it every week with 4wd so will be a ickle muddy but more off the track but ill sort some atro fore some pit places just to use it up.

You can put me down for 2wd Mike, the D4 is out of action :(.
Don't suppose you or Steve have a 40mhz AM receiver kicking around i could borrow? I purchased one off here, but hasn't arrived. No problem if not, just wanted to try sticks tomorrow

mikeyscott
20-02-2010, 02:59 PM
Can't help there i'm afraid.

Mm I am tempted to get my b4 running now

No worries and do it!

mikeyscott
20-02-2010, 03:26 PM
No worries and do it!

Several things.

1) I only have speed passion v3 motors avaliable and they are vented brushless. I don't really want that hanging out the back of the B4.. I've got the V3s for my Cougar SV

2) I'm still set-up for indoors - Petit RC from January

3) Thinking of the remaining 4WD runners...

4) Cat SX needs track time if I want to go to EPR on the 7th.

I may borrow some brushed gear if I want to run my b4. The only thing in the B4 at the mo is a spektrum RX and a Tekin RS Pro

mikeyscott
20-02-2010, 03:44 PM
mmm my 8.5 is not vented, so now tempted to head to 2WD, but still thinking of other 4WD runners.

Hey I could race both classes :)

All of us decided that I think. Steve and Julian are ill too.

21-02-2010, 10:58 AM
I too decided to give it a miss, my bearings have also taken a hammering.

I could hear the rain most of the night and it was still raining when my alarm went off at 7.

The thought of a wet through track and the ridiculously muddy area we call the pitting area put me right off.

Landrover Lee is also ill

maybe next week...

Hi Paul,

Indeed, it's been pretty poor here all day. PM me your email address and I'll email you my mobile number so that you can contact me for weather updates should you wish to join us in the future.

Couple that with SteveB being ill etc. It would have been a walk in the park for you if we had raced.

Cheers,

Mike

It was very wet, i turned up at 8am, water logged track. I was too scared to drive to the track, i stopped at the buses and took a look at the swimming pool and decided against trying the XX4.
I hope i can get down for next week. Good news is i don't need to clean it or charge any batteries for next week.
