We have it every second sunday. If i was you i would wait untill the next one as i don't know how many people are going to be coming since it's the first one back after chrissie.

What tyers to use? Well it's on the skate rind, yes indoors, and there is no grip what so every. I run slicks the first time but a freind was running Tamiys radials which he won with. I was looking for some new tyers so i tried them out. Came first in every race (12 races), even against 1 of the pro's. That was on a TB02, epic motor and Tamiya Radials. There are other guys that use foams and they seem to go ok.

I don't know weather I will be able to make monday's, it's my faincee (how every you spell it) birthday and where going out of dinner.

well... classes... that's a interesting question. The question is how good a driver you are lol. Put it this way. We have about 15 people come along. WE run on class for the beginners which are people that either are just starting that have stock motors or 27 Turn Rebuildable. We have on class for the pro, these are people that know how to drive and have rebuildable stock or RS540 and that.

WE are easy at the moment about what people run. I think by mid year we will have proper classes. You will find it's pritty even because alot of people can't get grip, so there's no big advantage of the high end rebuildable stock.

Give you an example. I run a TB02 as I said and I won all of them an that was against a $1000 car that run's in brissie all the time. I only won this because of the tyers. That's all. I think that I have the 32 sorex and they didn't go to bad. As for the form's I wouldn't have a clue.

What night do you guys have racing on?

First run for the Nitro Buggies will be this Sunday 9th Jan...

We are still only running fun days ....!!!!

If you are interested in running in the Qld series its a good time to start preparing for it, most of the locals have never had to do timed runs and pit stops , it helps to have a bit of an idea of what goes on at a race meeting. ( Nashy thats where you come in )

Now about the Qld Series. A Qld series consisting of atleast four rounds will kick off on the 19th and 20 th of Feb in Maryborough and finish in Rockhampton in August 4-7 , the reason for the four days in Rocky is it is also the Annual Qld Championship which usually includes up too a dozen interstate drivers........The other rounds are yet to be confirmed but likely to be at Brisbane and Miriam Vale .....

Hope to see ya all Sunday......

We better tell Robbo to bring his LST down for a run.

I have swapped my MTX3 for a MST1,, Now i cant stop pulling wheelies

Default 1/8 buggy

Hi, will not be able to make it on the 9th for the buggy day as I'm in Townsville at the moment but look forward to spending a lot more time there with the new TTR S3 this year.
Cheers Nigel.

We run on the Sunday just before you guys then its this weekend starting at about 9am on Sunday.

Still scoping the council and hopefully another block of land that suits us this time wil become available soon.

So... stocks or 540's on your track shouldnt be a prob as i have plenty of both of those.
Anyone tried mods or is it just way too slippery for that?

No major mod motors. Only the RS540 tamiya's

I have a freind when he puts his car togerther he's going to give a 12 Turn team orion ago

I think that if you can drive and drift then a mod motor would go well.
