But I didn't understand the 30 day LIPO rule, its the first I have ever heard of it.
I guess its talking about new LIPOs coming onto the market, not the actual ROAR approved LIPOs a competitor already owns.

Cheers.
Brett,

Great to see you've got the right gear. Hope you have a fantasic Easter racing with us down here.

Looks like a healthy mix of Queensland vs NSW in most classes except Mod tourer and 12th Scale but quality over quantity might help us there

Default Introducing our Event Sponsors

I would like to introduce our Event Sponsors.

TOY & HOBBY MEGA WORLD,
Is Tamworths new Hobby Shop in the CBD. It started out as Toy World just over 12 months ago. The owner of the business (RC enthusiast) then aquired the premises next door and then opened Hobby World, approx 7 months ago. Thus the new name of TOY & HOBBY MEGA WORLD.
THMW has products from all the major RC suppliers, and i would say they would have over 50 RC Cars on display.
THMW are proud sponsors of our local RC Clubs and Associations.
www.toyandhobbymegaworld.com.au

Go to www.mrjracing.com.au and see all the good products. Including his latest products, WTF Fans.


BEARFAST Pty Ltd,
Are a local company that started out approx 25 years ago selling Bearings and Fasteners. And in all those years this company has grown massively. Selling most probably over a million items now, to do with Farming, Motor Trade, Etc. They were our local HEI agent for 3 year until the young salesman that was the RC connection to the company recently moved to sunny North Queensland. Bearfast have been sponsors of our event for 4 years and also support many other clubs in Tamworth.
Ph: 02 67654822

Default Getting to the Track Tips

Hi Entrants,

Here is a couple of tips getting to the track.

Coming from QLD.
You are on the New England Highway and when your getting close, if your GPS tell you to turn off at Kootingal. Don't. Stay on HWY and keep driving until you see a Vinyard on you left. Just after this around curves there is a Post Office/Caltex Servo turn left there, over bridge and turn left at small round about. 400m on right is the Track Complex.

Coming from Sydney/Newcastle.
As you come into Tamworth, after you pass McDonalds, turn right at next round about (Calala Lane) and stay on this road (don't turn off any where). You go around behind Farrer High School and keep goin until a small round about. Go straight through and 400m up road on right is Track Complex.

Just to save a little time.

Todd, following on from your road tips, I'd thought I share some as well for the Queenslanders attending this event.

Travel Tips for Queenslanders while in ‘God’s Own Country’

Some may say that Queenslanders are of a unique breed, not cut from the same cloth of other mere mortals. With their love of half strength beer, complete lack of basic road rules and a half baked football team they call the Broncos, I’d thought that the following travel tips could come in handy to make the trip ‘down south’ a more pleasant and enjoyable experience.

When using roads.

1. Just as you cross into New South Wales you will see a white sign that states the speed limit is 100km per hour. Unlike Qld, where this sign is shot at over a carton of XXXX for target practice, to ensure your safety in our fine state, we ask that you stick to this limit. That way you will see more of gods own country at a leisurely pace and arrive in Tamworth ready for racing, calm and relaxed.
2. Most road users in NSW will display what is called ‘courtesy’. For example, when they approach a stop sign, they will stop, at a give way sign, they will give way. The blinking orange light you see on the car is called a signal, telling you their intentions to turn left or right. While this may appear strange to you at first, give it a go and you will find that you still get to your destination without causing a near death experience, calm and relaxed for racing
3. Likewise, a road user may give you a signal with their hand as they go past you. In Queensland you are accustomed to this signal to be the either the ‘bird’ or the ‘one finger salute’. In NSW, we use our whole hand in a waving motion to say ‘Hello’ or ‘Thank you’ when we let you in on merging lanes, or simply on a long lonely stretch of road to acknowledge your travels and wish you well. This makes for an enjoyable relaxing trip.
4. In NSW, we have signs that state ‘Keep left unless overtaking’ You may have these signs in Qld, but normally they are ignored, cause confusion as most Queenslanders don’t know their right from left, or used as target practice. This rule was created to help with traffic flow and allow other road user’s to safely get around you along the highway. It’s not an opportunity to race your Landcruiser while towing a caravan against the family sedan. Give it a go while driving, you will enjoy driving in the left lane
5. Finally, take a break while driving. NSW has many rest stops for you to enjoy a quick stretch of the legs. Stop in one of the many great towns along the way like Tenterfield, Glen Innes, Armidale or Uralla. People are friendly and won’t hold it against you that you have a white number plate.

Enjoy the trip so that you can enjoy the racing.
Cheers
Karl K

All's OK in QLD our grade 3 kids believe QLD can never loose

NSW 8 year olds have never heard the phase We won the State of Orgin and may never hear it until they are old and gray or move to the sunny state

WOW, Karl you are so funny. Can't wait to meet you.

How are you going to get back home after this weekend ? I think they might shut the gate and lock you out of QLD.

Is that football? I tend to follow cricket more, and NSW holds the Sheffield Shield.
