Can you confirm a few things:

1. Car 1/10h scale off road? What Cars?
2. Fast Charger for batteries?
3. Are the cars race ready and reliable?

Book in on day, 8 non members, members 6, we do supply club transponders for AMD lap counting system, PT's are the prefered long term solution.

Any other questions please ask

Steve

Hi

The Madrats will be fine - (we already have a few racers running them) and I am sure the motors will be plenty powerful enough for your first meeting.

My advice would be just to come down with whatever you have and see how you get on. Make sure you let someone in race control know that this is your first meeting so they can make sure you are looked after and most important of all if you have any problems or questions please ask!! Most of us are pretty friendly and more than willing to talk about set up and equipment all day and if you do break something or need to borrow something there is a high chance someone will be able to help.

I unfortunately cannot make it this Sunday so good luck if you can make it.

Cheers

Rob

Racing this weekend for a morning session, it'll be Julian and I running the meeting so if people can help that would be great. With the numbers on the up it's hard work.

Our Chairman and superstar SteveB will be taking a back burner for a while. Congrats mate :thumbsup: An opportunity for someone else to take the glory.

So lets have a great meeting and also all help each other. 4WD for me whilst I try and sort out a pig of a Durango (before it gets raffled).

If all goes well I'll be running 4wd with my Rango, but i'll make sure I bring my box of 'Rat spares just in case! It's a great little racer, and much maligned in the UK just because of the Ansmann name:thumbdown:

I've run 8.5T in mine and it's been a really good way to get into the electric scene. Not so fast it gets you into major trouble, but quick enough to have a good race.

I should be there Sunday 4wd for me.
Looking forward to seeing the new layout and finding out what the jumps are like.

4WD for me :thumbsup:

Though not looking forward to the clocks changing - one less hour in bed. So as we lose 1 hour based on current time I'll have to wake up at 5:30am rather than the normal 6:30am :cry:

I should be down with 4wd again. Durango + ORCA was awesome last week, think it could be even better.

Please get in touch if you want us to put anything to one side from the shop for you.

Hi Guys. I am not known at TORCH, unless you are a Clanfield regular.
Well surprise of all surprises, I have now finished my winter project. The build of my AE B44.1 is now completed and I am ready to roll. Problem is I can't make it this week, but am planing to be there on 3rdApril. Hope the weather holds out. Cannot work out why it has taken me so long to drag myself the 3 miles from home to TORCH, although I have been up a couple of times to spectate. Have to say, just like the committee at Clanfield, you have worked incredbly hard throughout the winter, and have a first class track. I am looking forward to driving on it with my first experince of 1/10 scale electric.
Hope you all have a good day Sunday

Doubt I'll be racing this weekend, found a broken part on the durango and I can't find it in stock at my normal places. Add to the fact that the chimps that do the post can't even deliver from Bournemouth within 5 days, I've got no chance.

Plus I'm not paying the rip off durango delivery charges. 2WD, well that's in bits and I'm not putting that back together.

mikeyscott
24-03-2011, 06:08 PM
Many thanks for MR RCLazy, so fingers crossed it doesn't take Royal Snail a week to deliver from Bournemouth this time..

Nope, got nothing in once piece ready. Hopefully private snail can deliver my durango stuff tomorrow at which point I'll be rolling.

Next up is my nosram ESC back from Stu and get a XXCR running. That ole girl is awesome and I haven't loved her since August 2009, which is just wrong.

mikeyscott

Mikey if you get stuck ill have my spare Rango with me

Thanks Chris, all sorted thanks to Simon @ RCLazy :)

Just hope the Durango isn't such a b*tch to drive this week. Got a few things to try, but it's just way way too pointy for me. It's easier to drive in the wet!

Any time you qualify behind me you know it's a bad day!

A big thanks to those who ran another excellent morning of racing, and to Martin and everyone involved in the latest track work. I think the current layout is excellent, and should produce some great racing.

Mark that's racing. No worries. Think I made servo saver too tight

simoncrabb
28-03-2011, 07:06 AM
It can never be too tight! I didn't break a servo yesterday with my solid saver... No no, that didn't happen.

mikeyscott
28-03-2011, 07:08 AM
Broke the horn. You did blow a servo??!

simoncrabb
28-03-2011, 07:12 AM
Well, something happened to the servo. I'll be carrying out KO surgery to two KO 2343s this week... Maybe it'll teach me for using old used servos, even if they were 120 a pop originally, and I've got 4 of them!...

Well that's not what I wanted to hear - I thought you were plenty quick enough with the X6!!!

Hoping to make it down this Sunday so I can see one racing in the flesh. Not sure whether Mother's Day means I have to stay at home even though she is my missus not me mother but since when did logic come into it:confused:.

My sensible side says changing a car which will need new lipos and cannot use my existing wheels/tyres is not worth it given my driving ability but I can already feel myself trying to rationalise buying one.

Maybe I could hit a marshall and break my X6:p

Rob

focusmad
28-03-2011, 01:24 PM
Very funny rob :pwe will see how fast it is when i race your x6,the 22 is so nice to drive out of the box,the new springs i fitted made it handle better not shore on the hrc at the rear will need more time on the track to see,but it is a sweet car,now looking forward to my racing again:thumbsup:
chris

maseace
28-03-2011, 05:16 PM
really enjoyed it after 20 year out, the mad rat was ok in fact, think its good enough for b level if not more with the right bits, just the lack of using it as i thought i would just turn up get it out of the box and race, not the best idea for me or the car ha ha, back next week and hoping to improve on my best lap of 38, it was just a shame all the rest where 50s and everyone else was low 30's ha ha. it was also good that you were made to feel welcome and the track is very good, very good morning out.

r1horn
29-03-2011, 10:45 PM
