  1. guess so, but i never had probs with standard bushes? perhaps i dont run them as much though. i still have the original ones in though.
  2. nice looking track there peter
  3. nice looking collection there
  4. its hard to fathom really but we cant dodge the facts, look out for each other , make sensible decisions. i am hopeful of a reasonably quick recovery for us all. race ya later (as arkin would say). All the best deb and pete.
  5. pagey does that mean you've changed your mind about handout motors
  6. well done pagey!!!. Great win in GT3. Foxy , good to see you get a result
  7. showing how to organise an event mark. well done , enjoy the weekend
  8. hi its 2020 any chance the owners of the rule sets establish them in the forum?? i see werners got them established on ace hobbies. is that now the source of truth
  9. Dear organisers of the endurance series Handout motors should be considered for this series in particular. i suggest that a good stock of these motors are obtained ready for hand out and (wait for it) Hand back at each of these three events, The motors should be prepped the same way fox did last years event at Hornsby, each motor run in, numbered marked and then allocated by random selection at each event. At the end of the race the motors are handed back. pro's and cons exit, but if you are serious about avoiding some of the rubbish from recent events then this is the way to go. No system is ever perfect, but this would reduce cost, supply issues and at the last event the motors can be kept by the participants. Mark Fox should be the custodian as frankly he is the only guy i trust and he is a little crazy !!!!. Questions What if more teams turn up than the previous event? so what, have more motors available, or restrict entries? What if Mark Fox does not turn up at each event, ? Use Australia Post. Do i get the same motor at each event.? No. always a fresh lucky dip What if one motor is a dud, ? either too bad or get rid of it because we would have spare motors. Would the same pinion have to stay on? of course not. We need fresh motors at each event, i am not too sure about this one, i don't think the races are long enough and most of the motors would be in same condition. but this should not be a deal breaker I am no expert on the dynamics of these electric motors but i always have felt strongly about hand out motors the best events run nationally have always had them. This preparation would take effort, but as i say , hand out motors have produced the racing with ONE less issue to talk about.
  10. mmmm i am sure you will find an adequate replacement😇
  11. ha ha what a joke!!! you guys need to take a chill pill. Its pretty obvious that you have to race the branded motors as stipulated, if you know how to get around that please let me know.!!!! My preference is to only race in events with handouts, that way i can have comfort its a base level playing field. i have no idea why there are no handouts. They are hard to get down here at best of times!! love the comment about the "local guys " testing. We race there every week in V8's and porsche slotworx, so you'd assume we'd have a good feel for how our cars perform. That how we feel every-time we go to an interstate event, but then again we are only amateurs!!!!
  12. apparently no hand out motors due to lack of sponsorship. Sooooo it looks like anything will go!!!!
  13. hi pagey dont know, they should be i will have to find out.
  14. team M&M will arrive
  15. well we are poppin our cherry at this event cant wait to have a crack
  16. Just repeating all the sentiments above. well done foxy for running such a great event you had lots of energy as well and made it very entertaining. We only get to a few meetings but Hornsby is not one to miss. Looking forward to the next one. see ya all next time. PS. good job Pagey (not bad for a opel bloke !!!!) 😂🤣
