Meeeeeeee! Have some tyres sorted now, still no oil in the shocks, but hey, you can't have everything!

Don't forget, for everyone looking to run vintage, make sure you have your modern car with you in case the numbers don't work in our favour!

Just to let everyone know, as we have the micro national on Sunday we may have a few more people visiting the club to get some practice in (maybe) so the more the merrier :)

So who's getting the keys this week? :woot:

Errrmmm any chance we could postpone this Vintage round 'till next week?

I've got this 2wd micro-thingy to race in the National at the weekend, i suppose i had better do at least one practice night with it... and im not good at doing 2 different classes in one night :lol:

looks likely vintage may be postponed again then due to lack of participants.

Booo :thumbdown:
(yes I know I'm guilty of not racing vintage too!)
I know Phil was hoping to run, and Dave Jackson has got his Cougar nearly ready to go.
Chris was running his boring car yesterday so don't know if he was planning on swapping the electrics back into his RC10 or not

Dont worry, this is a one-off ! Name another date for the Vintage and the Astute will be there !

But for the sake of my pride and the other competitors i should really have at least one practice with the Chunk before i race a National...

On another note, i ran at Telford Hot Trax last week ( great club ), and i got Steve Haynes ( ex-Tamiya Factory driver late 80s/early 90's ) to run my TRF Astute for a round... first time he had run an Astute in 20 years, and he seemed to have enjoyed himself with it - he was quick with it as well :)

So now its been run by a 'proper' driver, hopefully some of Steves skill will have been absorbed by the car and i might have a better chance of keeping up with Martin next round.. or maybe not.. :lol:

whats the minimum required to run a vintage heat friday then, for those of us who dont race micro .

peetbee

Really for any class we need to have 6 drivers in it to make marshalling work, we could always drop a couple of willing modern cars in there to make numbers up again, but it didn't seem that popular last time.

Just bring modern cars as well in case there's only 3 of us, or shall we just postpone it for a week?

Caine

well I've got the RC10 going. but I've got a slow servo in it and its not centering. and I can't find the gear guard at the moment. So I'll be doing vintage.

pete are you going to limit the classes people can run???

last vintage night was are mare with 4min heats all night. my car didn't roll till after 9pm.

Balders
02-03-2012, 09:38 AM
Don't worry Steve, we should get lots in tonight.

Matt and I hope to get there early enough to chuck a track down and tonight is special because we don't have to clear away at the end of the night due to the National on Sunday.

:thumbsup:

Last vintage was a bit of a shocker...didn't get set up too early, then tons of people turned up and booking in took ages, it all conspired against us that particular week so we didn't get started til after 8...the 4 minute qualifiers were a last resort desperate measure to keep the masses and neighbours (mostly) happy!!! :blush:

We've set a new start time target for every week as a result...we now aim to be racing by 7:30pm each week...so we should be able to cope with 7 heats if that's what turns up and still get 4 rounds of racing in.

Then if less turn up we get even more racing in instead. :D

And as Mike says, tonight is a bit 'special' as we can race right up to finish as it's not being packed down :thumbsup:

Also as a result of that week and our general busy'ness these days, the national is allowing us to build up some pre built track features so that should help me and anyone else who builds the tracks to build better tracks and features faster each week, making setup (and pack down) that little bit less hectic to hopefully.

peetbee
02-03-2012, 10:30 AM
Echo what Balders and Andy hjave said for this week, but as an aside, yes if it is busy we will potentially limit what classes people run regardless of whether there is vintage or not!

TBH even if last vintage hadn't run then it wouldn't have made any difference to the number of heats we had as it was freakishly busy that week (ie everyone running vintage wasn't running modern that week, if they'd run modern instead then it would still have been enough for an extra heat, hope that all makes sense!)

02-03-2012, 12:58 PM
Do we need to pack the track away tonight?

peetbee
02-03-2012, 01:07 PM
No, we can leave it out:)
