Hey guys I'm new to the forum and just thought I'd share my Oval racers with you all. They'll be racing at the BMBSCC. All have just been re shelled so I thought I'd get some pics before they were bashed up!!!:D

Thanks.

The Saloons are built by one of our club members to run 6 cells. Am racing it for the first time on sat. The Escort and Topalino I built and run in the 4 cell classes with a fair amount of success :blush: will be interesting to see how much faster the saloon is!!

Hiya Bluestreak, saw these on carpetoval, looking good - I like the colour scheme on the Pop. very 80's :) I'd ditch the on/off switch on the saloon though - less to go wrong :cry: and tie up the ariel to keep it out of the spur lol
Ps - It's me that makes the body posts, track rods and supplied the glued and tru'd wheels and tyres for Robbie lol
and how did tonight go? I tried to make it I had to be family taxi

Cheers large,

Was a frustrating night in many ways, took all night to get some sort of handle on the car. Started off with no front end, fixed that and lost the rear end, sorta got it neutral by the end although still needs more front grip.

Worst thing was having two new 6 cell matched packs suddenly go pop on the bench, not even being charged or anything!!!!!! So will be emailing the suppliers today!!!
