Here are some photos i took earlier in the morning.

Yeah... Apologies to all who had to travel some distance to get to Ryde, only to have the race cancelled.
But sometimes it's hard to make the right call and given the uncertainty of the weather, combined with the small turnout, most likely due to the OTHER race. We had a to make a call one way or the other to prevent others travelling long distances for what would have been a questionable day of racing.

Sorry.

Looks like the drains I dug last week are still working. That's no where near as bad as it was last week where we had large pools all over.

Thumbs down Electronic Guru Needed for MMPro

Fellas,

Anyone know of an electronic or soldering guru with small hands that can fix this?? I was wondering why my sensor had been playing up and I couldnt get consistent/or any timing out of it so I checked it over this arvo and all but one of the leads had snapped....I tried to remove the plug and the last one snapped!!

new toy is built, just need to fit servo, and receiver (when it arrives)
oh and paint body
never thought I'd say this but Tamiya produces the best kits as far as enjoyable builds and if this drives anything like my DB01R I'll be very happy
now where did I put that candy apple paint

I started to build my TA05 yesterday as well Steve, definitely very enjoyable
to build this Tamiya kit.

Going to use the kit Johnson 540 motor and an old LRP Quantum ESC, it should be fast enough for me as i have not raced onroad for ages.

There are a lot of people who haven't entered the Club Series yet, so I'll simplify it for you some more, click here http://clubseriesnsw.com/?page_id=101 an fill in the form, it takes a total of 30seconds (less if you use auto-fill software) and dit's all over, very painless and stress free.

I agree with the tamiya builds. The build is a big part of it for me.

Is it a v2 Steve?

Default Where to start?

Hi Guys,

Firstly sorry if I am posting in the incorrect area, Ryde track is the closest for me, so I thought I would ask the locals.

Iím seeking your advice on recommendations for an novice class car, that requires assembly (I want to learn the aspects of the car, so when I destroy it I can repair it myself, but I would also like to purchase a vehicle that can be upgraded in the future, as my driving skills become > novice and therefore would allow me to compete outside of the novice class.

I have scanned various R/C setup websites and looked over sydneyrc but they havenít really helped me while scanning EBay.

Would anyone like to go as far as offering a local hobby shop or online dealer they recommend who could potentially to set me up with a novice start-up pack that would suit my needs and allow me to participate in this awesome looking sport?

Many thanks in advance, I appreciate the help.

Best Regards

Matt
