  1. What you trying to say Pagey...?
  2. Only 4 weeks to go to the big race.. Just remembered I've been so busy converting Slotworx Sedans to Cup cars I've now got to build a fresh one.. mind you, my old yellow "big Rooster" Holden was always a dog.

    New Slotworx Porsche Series @ HSC.

    Well done Bramble "boys" .. thats great you organising this event.. 12 entries is a good start for a new series.. I'm sure you will get more on board. The Slotworx cup cars are a lot of bang for your buck.. I really like this class because to go fast you really have to drive them... get em smooth.. and stay on!

    Another great day of racing on the Plafit Masters at Rivercity Raceway. Stephen from Slotstream did an outstanding of promoting and recording the whole event.. Go to the Slotstream site for more information. Close racing and a full field in all three classes really bought out the best in everyone. Racing is so close almost everyone is recording higher lap totals with each round. On the pointscore sheet attached I have added a leader board so drivers can see where they are after dropping theire worst round. Of course this will change with 2 more rounds to go... your worst might still be coming up! SCALEAUTO - PRO: With the Bullring Team in town for this event it certainly put the cat amongst the pigeons. Ace Racing, Bullring and Nikimoto were the fast teams for this event. By halfway Nikimoto who started on black was well placed to be only 1 lap down as Ace and Bullring still to drive the slower lanes. Instead a controller mishap saw the Bullring team drive past Nikimoto and get the lead from Ace. Ace recovered the lead as Bullring hit the slow lanes was uncatchable to get the win. AMATEUR Team Turtle was on pace running as high as 4th outright against the fast boys but it got even easier when Magics car had to stop and re-fix a grill after a colision. As often the case with the Scaleauto bits fly everywhere when you crash hard in this class so have lots of tape ready! SLOTWORX CUP CAR - PRO: unfortunate crash on the warm-up lap saw Narangba have to repair under green at the start and compromise what would have been a very different finish. Again the hot teams were Ace, Bullring and Nikimoto. Ace lead all the way and got a record run of 489 laps, Nikimoto came in 2nd had a PB of 482 and Bullring also a PB of 477 to pick up 3rd place. Considering Narangba lost 10 laps at the start and still achieved 473 laps they certainly would have been a 2nd place contender with potentially 483 laps.. bad luck guys. AMATEUR: Magic reversed the tables on Team Turtle with a 4 lap lead to win, Unfortunately am entries were down for this event... Jack got married the day before (poor excuse) and the Rivercity Racers we down a driver. Hope to see back next time guys.. you can drop a round so you still have a good chance GT3 LEXAN - PRO This class is just getting faster and faster. With the rules allowing virtually any scale chassis and modifications times just keep going down.Last year 7.5 sec laps were considered good enough.. now teams are knocking at the 7.2 second door. In the race last weekend Gold Coast Eagles got down to 7.449, Narangba 7.438, Turtle 7.423, Nikimoto 7.380, Magic 7.379. Bullring 7.368, and Ace racing's 7.219! Really it's the laps that make a race, and getting over 500 laps on the Masters track is the tough one. Narangba there with their 502 for 3rd place..Bullring got 2nd place with their 503 and " of course" drivers Noel and Werner "Aced it " to win with 512 laps. Outstanding drive guys.. we're all going to have to lift our game. AMATEUR: Magic nearly joined the 500 club with an outstanding 498 laps to get their win against Turtle who had car problems right from the start losing 40 laps on the opening bracket. Better luck next time guys. Also "Knocking" at the 500 club door is the Gold Coast Eagles with 499, Nikimoto also 499 and Phoenix with 494... we've just got to get faster guys!

    Garry's right.. I've had one for years.. best bit of kit I have ever bought. you would stripe a track the size of your's in less than 2 hours Pagey. I bought the cheaper glass bottle one... and added a bit of water pipe with a stop end to give it more volume... and if you get really bored you can pinstrip the wheels on your ride...

    2019 Qld GT championships

    Ace's trifecta at Rivercity GT Champs... Following their recent 12 hour win the very polished Ace Racing team of Noel and Werner got the trifecta by winning all three classes at last weekends Queensland GT Championships. Nine teams from Brisbane and the Gold Coast clubs competed in the 3 classes for the pro and am. series. Here's a brief rundown on the races. Pointscore and race sheets are attached. Next race is Sunday 16th of June. Scaleauto Pro: 1st win of the day was extremely close with Nikimoto and Ace tied on laps going into the last bracket. Nick caught the Ace car driven by Noel but getting past and an off with slow marshalling stopped Nicks charge and gave Ace the win. 3rd place for a podium finish was the Narangba team of Andrew and Simon who managed with an off pace car to stave off the Gold Coast Eagles team not far behind. Am: Team Turtle and the Gold Coast Magic team slugged it out with very similar bracket scores for most of the race but a low score on yellow in the 7th bracket saw Magic's chance slip away by 2 laps to give the Turtle drivers Cam and Jason a win. Slotworx Porsche Cup Car. Pro: Again Ace Racing led the field with solid lap scores right thru to the last bracket but a last bracket on black and a good drive on yellow saw the Nerangba team close to within a lap of Ace at the finish. Richard and Sean of Rickshaw running 3rd for most of the race got their podium points just edging out Nikimoto into 4th a lap behind. Am: This time The am Gold Coast Magic team stepped up for a convincing class win 15 laps ahead of Team Turtle with Jack's Team coming in 3rd. GT3 Lexan Pro: Well, what can I say. We all had high hopes of doing well in this class.. especially as Werner had given away the winning 12 hour car.. but nope, Werners new car was even faster. Pretty much the rest of us were battling for 2nd place. By the 6th bracket it was looking good for Phoenix with a couple of laps up on the rest of the field but by the end of the 7th bracket Nikimoto and Nerangba had moved ahead and were tied going into the last bracket. A brilliant final bracket drive by Simon saw Narangba grab 2nd with Nikimoto a further lap back in 3rd and Phoenix in 4th only 3 laps further back after coming of the slow black and purple lanes. Am: Team Turtle found their pace with good consistent lap score's for a class win 12 laps ahead Magic for 2nd and Jacks team in 3rd. Please find attached pointscore... and remember... Next event, round 3 is Sunday 16th June. Pointscora rnd 2.pdf

    Round 2 Queensland GT Championships This is scheduled for Sunday the 28th of April..( the weekend after Easter.) Shop opens 8am, Scrutineering 8.45, so racing can get underway by 9am. This race series has been very well received, the following committee has now been formed to ensure rules are enforced and for the smooth running of the event. Race Day committee: Noel Batson, Gary Johnson, Bruce Ambler Scrutineering: Werner Wittsack with assistance Race control: Phil Morrow, Simon Wakelin with assistance from committee members. Publicity and pointscore: Kim Axton. RACE FORMAT: All heats are 8 minutes, drivers race 4 heats each, no driver changes during a bracket. All classes will be run to Round Robyn format. When on a Bye cars must be returned to Parc Ferme. No working on cars in Parc Ferme or during lane changes. Classes are listed below. 1/24th Scaleauto GT Scaleauto - Ams have the choice of either SC-8000 or SC-8003 chassis, but Pro's can only race the new SC-8003. Rules for the SC-8000 are unchanged so you still have to run the Enduro motor. The new SC-0029 Sprinter Junior motor is only eligible for the SC-8003. Body weights and interior's have changed for SC-8003 so check rules: www.acehobbies.com.au/galleries/category/16-2018regulations-124scaleautogt And yes, I have been asked this a few times, Am's can run the new SA-8003 to 2019 specs. 1/24th Slotworx Porsche Cup Cars Slotworx Porsche Cup cars. replace's the V8 class we ran last year. Body and chassis upgrade kits are available from you local track, Ace hobbies or direct from Slotworx. Note, These cars run the SRP long-can motor and a T plate specific to this class. Check rules here: www.acehobbies.com.au/galleries/category/13-2018regulations-124slotworxporschecup 1/24th Lexan GT3 and GT3a GT3 class is for those that nominate to be in the pro class and GT3a is for Am's. To encourage new racers and make an easier price point GT3a cars cannot run a suspension motor box. Don't worry if you have an existing chassis with a motor box, simply remove the springs and bolt the box solid to the chassis plate. Lap times at Red Racer with suspension and non suspension are very similar. Check rules here: www.acehobbies.com.au/galleries/category/14-2018regulations-124lexangt3 Note: Am's.. A reminder you must remove springs and lock down the back end of of your chassis to compete in AM. if you have a hybrid SLP2 /Slotworx Pod conversion the rear of the chassis must be locked down with the Plafit aluminium side plate's or similar.. NOT the flexi ones. Racing fee's this year have been reduced to $10 per class, thanks to trophy sponsorship. You may chose to run one or all the classes on the day, and even mix drivers between classes, it's up to you. Team names are important, Stick to your team name for the series.. as per last year you may have a relief drivers step in for you or your team mate if you are down a driver due to other commitments so keep the team alive by not changing names. Drivers ratings. As per last year am drivers may choose to run in a pro class but Pro drivers cannot race for points in Am. The Venue for all events will be at River City Raceway at 300 Oxley Avenue Margate. Shop opens 8.00 am, Scrutineering 8.45am (or before if you're ready) so racing can start 9am. The order of racing will be Scaleauto, Slotworx and then GT3. All heats are 8 minutes with drivers sharing the driving, 4 heats each with no driver changes during a bracket. See you trackside, Kim

    River City 12 hour Enduro

    Not that straight forward Cody.. the track can be multi configured for different layouts and to suit various shop sizes. If we "striped" and changed to another configuration you would have black lanes lining up with red...
