  1. Thanks Benno, good suggestion that worked. I guess that's why you get paid the big bucks.
  2. As the forum is the place to get information about upcoming events, developments and other general things could we please have the rules posted on the relevent pages. I would like this done so as I can print them out without all the stuffing around I have to do too get them from Ace Hobbies site, I am Mac based and get lots of useless stuff being printed when I try getting them from there for some reason that my computer skills are unable to understand.
  3. Team Triple R [Ray & Richard] would like to be entered into the Sunday events, Lexan GT3 and FLM as Richard has other commitments on Saturday.
  4. Now that I am fit enough to get to my computer, nothing to do with the carrier of the black plague[flu], I would like to thank the team of Benno and Pagey for all of there help with the scurtineering over the weekend. You guys made it quick and easy to get through things and it was a pleasure to not have any major issues to deal with, that trick of Bennos using his phone to check pinions is a little ripper. Just goes to show you what a young head can come up with, smart lad that young man. Great weekend of good racing, hope to see you all when the 12 hour race is sorted. Thanks again fellas it
  5. Peter and Trev have asked me to enter them in all classes, team name Hallams Howlers.
  6. Greg could you put Team RRR, Ray and Richard, down for all classes please.

Part of racing slot cars is having your car scrutineered and Event organizers mus
  8. Thanks for the replies guys but I am really not any clearer on the subject. Having looked at the rules it mentions front wheels which means that the rim and tyre, the parts that make up the wheel, must fit within these dimensions ie 7mm. Also note that the rear tyre, the rubber bit, can be no wider than 13mm. Having just gotten my hands on Cams Slotworx Go-Nogo plate for the V8's the rear tyre check is set for 13mm wide. Like I said before I can be a pedantic Ar#$*^#e. Also according to the OAPR rule it says 13mm wide with minimal rounding allowed. Maybe Cam could come in with an answer but as
  9. Let me start with why I am asking about the rules regarding front tyres/wheels. I am the guy who was asked/pushed forward into doing the scrutineering at Mr. Slotcar on Thursdays and being the pedantic person that I am have been fairly hard on everyone in the hope that they would find someone else to take over, sadly this has not happened. With regards to the Slotworx V8's I have noted that in most cases the rubber on the rims is usually 7.3 mm wide and the actual rim is usually 6mm wide on the wheels supplied with the kit. This is also true with the Porsche Cup kits. So, I would like to know
