You will have heaps of fun running the "truggy" Hayden.


What project are you working on Steve ?
Is your mum still here, and did she have a good time in Oz ?
She left today, Had a great time with the children, watched 101 dalmations about a dozen times with Alyssa, zoo, scenicworld, luna park, crunnulla, BBQ's etc, a lot packed into 8 days
The only project I'm working on is my career and what I can do
I'll fill you in next time I see you,
Maybe on Sunday
And Nick, I'm the one with the idea of the family trip to Maitland not Nicole, why can't RC and family live together in harmony.
when half your family are half way round the world from you, RC racing is not really that important, RC friends are, shit now I'm sounding like Daz.

Real dissapointed with the Duratrax Vendetta rally, looks a great bit of kit until within 1 battery 2 driveshafts snapped at the inboard end, modded it into a 2wd so Daniel could show his nan (with who's B-day money it was bought)then another driveshaft shat itself, wrote a snooty email to Duratrax,
received reply from duratrax, and they are sending me 2 sets of steel driveshfts,they must know that there is a problem. anyway Good service from them

I didn't see anything about Mod Truck for this round. Let's just see what the people who makes these decisions say.

I just did an update on the website and noticed that we have lost more days to rain this year than we did for the whole year last year. It has been the wettest year in 10 years (or something) but still bloody annoying.

I went to the track today at lunch and it is a complete mess again! Kids have been running in the mud and riding bikes on it, the half pipe was 200mm deep in water, the drains are completeply blocked and there were heaps of giant puddles all over the place. I dug some drains to get rid of the water but it is just all flowing down to thge drain in the half pipe that is blocked.

Has anybody ever used an electric eel before? I am thinking of hiring one but I am not sure how to use it.

Apart from that we need as many people as we can to get down to the track over the next few days and get on the brooms to get rid of all the crap on the surface if we are going to have a race meet on Sunday.

website says Truck mod.is limited to 12 entries, so looks like the same rules apply

How many tonnes of clay do you guys reckon we would need if I can get it from work to put 100mm topping on the entire track? The stuff we have at work is ceramic grade, very uniform clay, unlike St Ives' clay this is refined and we would probably need to add sand to it. I haven't had anybody say a definite yes yet as we currently send it to Boral to make bricks, but I have started the ball rolling and it looks kind of positive.

The negative of this type of clay is that when it's wet it is really slippery (think pottery class at school) but if we add some sand it could work.

track= 40x20m=800sqm
800sqm/10=80 tons
rough estimate
