Hi Nick

Default boats?

Pete,

Let me know when you are heading down to the pond. I will bring one of my fast electrics down too..

Nick,

Is it fresh water or salt? What boat are you running? Tough finding large freshwater areas without heading up in the hunter direction!

FRESH! But it's only about 150mx25m, still big enough just to have fun. I am waiting to hear back about a 4mm drive shaft before I can go again, the pond already owes me a flex shaft, prop etc! But that can probably be blamed on running in saltwater too often. I will email you guys the location as I don't want too many people finding out or they will put up no boats signs.

To be honest I don't know, the pinions don't have numbers and the spur is the standard one that comes with the MiniT slipper.

Just had a quick run on the track on the way back to the office and it is in excellent condition considering the amount of rain we have had over the past 4 weeks, it will definitely hold up until the July working bee and will be absolutely brilliant on Sunday.

Track good + Forecast good = Fun Sunday

Get your online entries in guys so we can get a good idea of numbers in advance.

Roman, is there anything i can do to assist on the Sunday, so that you can get some racing in, rather than you just sitting behind the screen all day fighting alycat?

Run a race or prep your cars / batts for you?

Definitely wanna see the academy out on the track for 2wd stock again

Why not pit next to Roman and just help out during the day, it's the best way to learn Alycat and you can help out with taking entries and posting results during the day. There's not a lot of room with two in there but I'm sure he would appreciate the help.

Try running onlineentries.exe in either administrator mode or compatibility mode.

Or check in the options if you can turn "logging" off

If not, try grab the newest version and save it to a different location

Cheers,

ESPN have very good coverage.



If you are pitting behind me then you can have a look in on the laptop and learn the basics of Alycat.
Helping with entries in the morning would be good.

Stuart and yourself would have no problems with Alycat, being computer pros at work.

Maybe one week down the track you guys could both run race control and give Shane, Nick, and myself a rest.
