  2. I'm not sure where this fits but they are all Slotworx Cars, with various bodies. Bob is from Port Macquarie and has about 20 V8s and over 50 in total.
  3. That's a dog's breakfast Brett. I'll find the dimensions and make you something a bit more elegant.
  4. If/When Hornsby goes that'll be end of swapping lead wires too.
  5. Yes, the factory that makes the hand out motors needs to up it's game. Oh, hang on .................
  6. A quick note on hand out motors. The motors supplied by Slotworx and Ace Hobbies have all been tested and, not withstanding the normal variations of mass production, have all been found to be within the normal range of performance and without any overt irregularities. As we are all aware, there are many ways to destroy a motor, tight gear mesh, over revving, applying additives that destroy brushes, the list goes on. Therefore it is incumbent on each team to ensure their motor(s) survive. If your motor fails for any reason you will not receive a free replacement. You will need to purchase a new motor from the approved spares held by Mark if you wish to continue racing. Please note that this rule has been applied by the suppliers of the motors and not by Mark so don't complain to him. If you have a problem with this please address all complaints, via email, to nobodygivesastuff@ratsarsecomplaintdept.com I hope everyone attending has a great weekend at what might be the last of these weekends at Hornsby. I wish I could be there at least for the Saturday night piss up, sorry, make that 'social gathering' at the Blue Gum.
  7. A clarification on the rules regarding lead wires. You may add devices to manage lead wires as long as they do not influence the normal operation of the chassis, specifically the normal movement of the 'H' and 'T' plates, and comply with all other rules. Such devices may include, PC board, clips, tape, cable ties, shrink tube, etc.
  8. I don't remember Jan, I've looked for the original drawing but no luck.
  9. Talking with Stoo yesterday and trying to remember exactly when the flat track was built. The absolute latest possible year was 1992 as I moved to Brisbane in early 1993 making it 28 years old this year. I've rebraided it a couple of times over the years and converted it to modular at one time so, unlike the hill climb track, it's easy to move and would be a good buy for someone if James can't find it a new home.
  10. Hi All, There've been some issues reported of posts not being saved since new year. The server has had recent upgrades and there was an update applied to the forum software this morning so I'm hopeful the problem is solved. Of course if the problem isn't solved no one will see this post and I'm wasting my time. Happy New Year 🍻 Cheers, Garry

  13. Members, please do not put email addresses in your posts. They get picked up by bots and sold on for either targeted marketing or scammers.
  14. New item to solve an old problem, nut holders for the axle carriers. They work very well, don't strip and clamp down tight over and over again. They'll be supplied with all new chassis and you can PM me if you want some. If you're wondering about the weight here's a comparison with a set of 1.5mm aluminium plate nuts.
