Hey Reckless,

With the Trackstar motor I would suggest (for SMA) between 3.3 and 3.5 at approx. 40 degree timing. I would also suggest running a fan. I am at the track most race and practice days and I'm more than willing to offer any help I can.

Make yourself known to me next time you drop down.

Regards Tony (Sugar Daddy)

Hi Tony,

Will definitely see you at SMA in the coming weeks and hopefully have a friendly chat about car setup. Thank you also for your suggestion with the FDR; will keep it in mind as I slowly piece together the car.

Kind regards,

John

This week SMA will be opening on Friday night for an open practice session.

Gates will open at 4pm and close whenever you've had enough (within reason).

See you there.

Tony.

We will again be opening the track this Friday night.

Its a golden opportunity to dial in your set up for our Spring Series (currently running on Tuesday nights).

Track will be open at 4pm (with timing) and closing approx 11pm

See you there.

Tony.

Round 3 of our "Spring Series" is on tomorrow night.

So far no-one has taken a clear lead (except for Ben Jones in VTA - its like he's the only one there). There has been plenty of trash talking from the GT guys as well as the usual suspects in 13.5.

With your worst 2 rounds (8 in total) being dropped its not to late to enter even if you have missed the last 1 or 2.

Usual classes being VTA / GT / 21.5 / 13.5 / Mod

Gates open at 4pm with racing to start at 7.30pm

See you there.

Tony.

Hi SMA,

I am looking at getting back into racing, and SMA is my closest track. I am just wondering if you still only race on Tuesday nights? I noticed a few posts back that you were open on Friday night but assume this was only a practice night.

Also, I was wondering if the track is available for use other than Tuesday nights? While I'm "allowed" to stay out past my bedtime (I promise my wife said I'm allowed), my daughter wants to have a drive on a "real racetrack" (she's only 6 and not allowed out so late on school nights). I have every intention in becoming a member of the club. Just wanted to know if the track is available outside of race nights? (no lap-timing obviously)

Thanks for any help/info provided.

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

At this stage Tuesday night is still our race night. We normally open the track at around 4pm to allow others to utilise the track before racing.

Normally we also open on Friday nights as a "practice only night with timing". Again, the track normally opens at 4pm and on most nights were there until 11or 11.30pm.

If you decide to drop down for a drive make sure to make yourself known to either myself (Tony) or Brett or Nathan and we will do all we can to assist you.

Tony.

Hey peeps thought Id ask here first as I used to race at sma. I made the mistake of selling all my gear about 5 years ago. Ive decided now being a bit older that I want to get back into it again.

Just wondering if anyone at sma is selling or would consider selling an Xray t4 either 14 or 15 chassis for around the price of 200-250. If anyone has something pm me please.
Cheers

Less than 2 weeks to go until the first round of XRS. Why not use tomorrow night as a shake down run for this event.

Even if your not running XRS come and run our normal Tuesday night race. Fun to be had by all.

Classes run tomorrow night will be: VTA / 21.5 / 13.5 and Mod (no GT this week as most of the drivers have had to go back into Rehab).

Gates open at 4pm with racing to start at 7.30pm

See you there.
Tony.
