I know its still 2 weeks away but hey, i cant wait:thumbsup:

Any questions, thoughts,predictions.

My prediction For 2wd is either Cragg or Bloomers, if its not one of them too then im reckon it will be another driver from the A final:thumbsup:



And Yardy for 4wd, thats it :woot:

Chris Doughty
03-04-2008, 08:40 AM
I would love to see 10 different types of 4WD car in the A-Main, that would be awesome!

Lee
03-04-2008, 08:44 AM
Its possible!!!

Cat
S4/S44
BJ4
HB
Aero
Pred
B44
Yok
Losi
Xfactory
Kyosho
Tamiya


But realistically some teams dont have the drivers.

Chris Doughty
03-04-2008, 08:59 AM
there was 8 different chassis at the indoor finals. just need to push out a few of the HB crowd with some other cars and hey presto!

millzy
03-04-2008, 09:03 AM
our we counting losi as x2 cars? as in xx4 and xxx4 or just as Losi

Chris Doughty
03-04-2008, 09:08 AM
oh yes, it was only 7 makes, but 8 types of car at the NIF's

Kopite

millzy
03-04-2008, 09:42 AM
what team drivers are runnig the xx4 and whos runnig the xxx4?

tricky should get the xxx4 in the A easly right , i cant see PW bining any of the set ups and mods they did to it

Oh and stand have you have the front gear box housing rip off yet>? just pray all the jumps this year have down ramps

telboy
03-04-2008, 10:36 AM
My prediction is-

Heavy rain, or Hail like last year.

You lot were ok when that happened, you want to try racing TC's on 10mm hail with a 5mm ground clearence.:thumbsup::lol:......very interesting. It was like trying to race a shopping trolley.



We'll have less about pushing th HB team out of the way too Mr D.:lol::p

And Yardy for 4wd, thats it :woot:

I don't think Daz is doing the 1/10th Nats this year is he??

I'd say Neil for 2wd, just because in the years i used to do Nats he was always sooo fast at Kiddy (not that he isn't anywhere else) - He just always seemed to like it there! Pidge could be close if he gets in though :-(

HB seem to be almost as big as the Losi team from 2004-2005. relative to other manufacturers

For Kiddy, I'm going for Tom to win 2wd, Pidge 4wd

..and Liverpool to win the Champions League :thumbsup:

MattADH
03-04-2008, 12:27 PM
Sounds like a return of the regular matches at the euros but on a national scale.

Someone should start a thread where people can put their name down for either team...

That should keep the non-footballing oople users happy!

Wraggy

North v South !!! im from the Midlands so i'll Ref then :woot: ...

North v South !!! im from the Midlands so i'll Ref then :woot: ...

I am sure that a suitable split across the country can be decided.

At least no-one will argue with you!!!

Slightly off topic but it could be wet again:thumbdown:


I have noticed that the slightest drop of water on the sensor wire of the brushless motors and they stop.

It there a knack of waterproofing brushless motors, (i have tried bluetack) or do people just go brushed when it gets damp:confused:

Are there any bars or local pubs we can sample on the friday and sat night?:confused:

Northy
09-04-2008, 12:39 PM
Lee,

Your more than welcome to follow myself, Stu, Damo, (and maybe even Jim) to the pub just a short walk away. Excellent carvery too :thumbsup:

you got me worried about local chavs now, lol

ta

jimmy
10-04-2008, 05:02 PM
Stu Evans bored them into submission tho and they left. Think it's generally pretty decent round there, I think people walking around the tents would soon get 'spotted' and tackled.

ooooh, you will have so much fun asking for direction!!! heehee

And you should be ok, they do mostly speak English (of sorts) up there, so you won't need to rehearse 'na dag, does dim siarad Gymraeg....' lol

rich_cree
11-04-2008, 11:38 PM
enough of the welsh crap...

I reckon Neil for the 2wd and Lee to be super close behind him.

In 4wd it'll be Chris to win with Lee putting up the good fight behind......

I'd also put Tony Truman in both A finals, with a top 5 in 4wd, or else I'll have to kick his sorry ass again....

If there is anything you want that isn't an everyday part then give the shop a ring and they will bring up for you.

Bloomfield - Novarrossi GP instead
Cree doing 1/8th
Barton doing 1/8th
Tricky away on stag do
Lee martin - well not sure what has come to rest there
Mcgee not going

so there are 6 A main drivers not going

I would say Neil for 2wd and Ellis for 4wd

Hope the weather is ok for you guys as i will be downing a few beers in Barcelona.....my season starts at Oswestry

Think there may be some first time A main drivers this weekend with the following not going

Bloomfield - Novarrossi GP instead
Cree doing 1/8th
Barton doing 1/8th
Tricky away on stag do
Lee martin - well not sure what has come to rest there
Mcgee not going

so there are 6 A main drivers not going

I would say Neil for 2wd and Ellis for 4wd

Hope the weather is ok for you guys as i will be downing a few beers in Barcelona.....my season starts at Oswestry

Damn that's a shame - i'm sure the racing will still be close but there are some names missing that you'd probably put money on making the A!

Hope this isn't the start of things to come, just as 1/10th seemed to be on the up?

Sounds like you'll be having fun anyway Si!

Anyone know if theres any rule against using illegal cells for practice at nationals? I assume I can use whatever I want, even lipo? or is that not the case? I only have 2 packs of 'legal' cells so don't want to over use them.

DaveG28
18-04-2008, 12:47 AM
This won't really help Jimmy but I'm sure sopmeone told me practice is open rules wise, just not sure if thet actually knew!!

I used LIPO in practice at the indoor finals though, and I think they're mean;t to be as strict? Plus I'm using illegals in practice Sunday, so you won;t be alone in missing practice if they're not allowed!

Postcode for the nearest place is DY13 8NH, which is for a school at the "U-turn" end of the Dual Carriageway.

Coming from Kidderminster town, follow the Sat-Nav to the far end of the dual-carriage way. Then U-Turn and go almost to the other end. THe entry to the track is on the left just after the sign post warning of traffic lights.

It seems that A finalists don't need to use the pull off area also.......

And thier pit men can wander onto the track before race over is called too.....

there have been stop-go's and other penalties applied in A finals I have been in previously.

sometimes the driver in question will let you pass the place back without any input from the ref.

LOL!

Actually, i wasn't referring to myself, i had no problems. However, whenever i've been in an A, or watched one, i've seen/heard/or been told of blantant 'take outs', or completely unneccessarily aggressive driving that's gone totally unpunished.

Last year, i made my first A at Southport, and understandably, i was a little overwhelmed by it all. I was being really cautious, but just got unceremoniously wiped out by others. I accepted it, cos it was my first A and i was absolutely buzzing.

The problem is, i've watched people work really hard in qualifying to get them as high on the grid as possible, only to see all their hard work undone by completely shit driving (and that is exactly what it is). The problem seems to be that the people who do this, are pretty confident that they'll get away with it.

Look, i'm not dissing the referees and officials. How can I? their tasks are selfless, and if it wasn't for them, we wouldn't be able to race in the first place. However, i would absolutely love to see certain drivers punished for consistent dirty driving. And yeah, if it was me who mullered someone, i'd accept a ten second penalty without argument.

Kopite

Is that really good enough though Chris? As during that time, others can pass you both, or gain time on you

maybe i'm a bit OTT in suggested that it 'never' happens, but it does appear that the A finalists get away with more than others. I'm only going from personal experience due to not having made many yet

Is that really good enough though Chris? As during that time, others can pass you both, or gain time on you

maybe i'm a bit OTT in suggested that it 'never' happens, but it does appear that the A finalists get away with more than others. I'm only going from personal experience due to not having made many yet

not really, but it does depend on where in the pack you run and how many places its costs.

but is a penalty against the offending driver EVER going to be any reward to the injured party?

but you can exactly take 5 seconds off the injured parties time because they got had off.

the way I see it, when its side-by-side gentle 'elbows' is fine, any contact to the rear of someones car is not really acceptable, some 'touching' does happen, gentle bumps to the rear bumper in the really slow sections, but a full wing-munch is not racing.

I do try and drive (especially on the first few laps) defensively in a way not to block people, but to make sure my car has enough space around it in the front and the rear to survive the first few laps. sometimes I will go a little deep into a corner if I think someone behined fancies a late brake attempt at me to save my ass.

that was fun, we passed each other about 3 times in the first lap. we didn't connect though.

i had to do that at the beginning though, cos Mossy was having a go at my ass (we all know how he loves a bit of that ;))

no, not at all. but penalties against the offending driver may make them think twice about doing it again.

I see what your saying, but I was refering to your point about when you said how does the person letting you pass them back help the driver that was taken out.

No not wrong at all Stan, I agree but if I ever make an 'A' final then I think I would have to change my driving style depending on who was behind or in front of me. All we all want is a law that is applicable to everyone and not let certain people get away with things.

We have all seen certain driving and thought 'that was a bit naughty' and what we need if to have a good level of driving.

BECAUSE IN QUALIFYING WE RACE AGAINST THE CLOCK (some drivers should remember this):eh?: - BUT FINALS WE RACE FOR PLACES

To all those complaining about penalties .
We as referees do to take into account alot of other issues when watching any race, Qualifing or Finals. at the moment we are not able to keep in touch with each other during a race due to Radio problems [ should be sorted for Oswestry]. The incident some of you have mentioned was seen and discussed at some length later. After Adams crap day I was witnessed a blatant back end shunt that the offending driver should have been penalised for [ We do not Ref our sons races ]. We expect as National F1 / F2 drivers you should have a reasonable driving standard others below that are given a greater error of judgement.
Yes I have given penalties to A finalist Jamie Booth was one who stands out in my mind, This weekend our first time finalist was also given a warning for his marshalling. I could go on, but is upto you as drivers to get the respect you think you deserve.

Ok something a little more positive, the meeting ran like clockwork from what i saw, im sure the Kiddiminster/Brca team worked hard but were totally in control and it showed :thumbsup:

It was my first national weekend and although not qualifying as high as i wanted, i still had a good time and thats what its all about.

I think the trackside scoreboard is an excellent feature, i had seen these previously when i raced on road at a couple of venues and it adds some valuable information. It gets a thumbs up from me, it would be good to see what everyone else thought about it.:D

i really liked it!! thumbs up IMO

although Nick Oliver was confusing me by saying it was really good seeing what place you were in when you were racing. Dude, that was some seriously impressive multi-tasking :confused:

From an 'outsiders' point of view, I thought that fact that you could hear the PA system so clearly in the pits was very good. Meant that whilst sipping tea in Harris' tent I could hear what heat was on.

Really enjoyed Kiddy as a spectator. you '10th' lads put on a hell of a show for the viewers :)

When you going to come and do some proper outside racing? There is a 2wd regional on at Kiddy on Sunday 4th May, so get your arse down there.

See you Friday bud.

I was amazed how close it was, on sunday in 2wd gregg williams and myself were seperated by 4/10ths in one round, but we ended up having 3 people between us. That is impressive:thumbsup:

Is it just possible to have the 4WD A-main overall result?

Thanks a lot

I shall put results up tonight, but it was Lee Martin (AE B44), Simon Moss (CAT SX) & Tom Yardy (HB D4) - top three.

It was the same with me and ian southwell in one of the rounds on sunday. I think their was about 6/10's or something like that between us then when i looked on the overall standings there was about 6 drivers inbetween us.:lol: :thumbdown:

For my first national I was amazed at how close it was (over the whole field). I thought it would be close as its the best drivers in the country, but the difference of being consistent is unbelievable.
If I'd managed to keep it on its wheels for 5mins for the two runs I would have gone up onto the 12's and possibly made up 50 odd places!! just from going 10-20sec's faster over the 5mins!!
You don't get that in too many TC meetings.

Deffinately need more practice to keep it right way up.:p:lol:

Thanks, due being in the 'lower part' of the heats :blush: I never really got out to take many pics of the top lads, so there are a lot of the same heats etc.

Was trying my new lens too, only a cheapo thing, but seems ok.:thumbsup: Deffo worth the 69.
