So I have been planning this for a while.... and now the time is right

Massive thanks to Ren at RAB hobbies - getting a full new setup; choosing Techno 4WD stock class
Also my young bloke is 8 years old now and keen to get in to it - he will be getting a Techno 4WD for rookie as well

Can't wait to catch up with everyone again

How many cars are you getting for stock 2WD and stock 4WD these days??

I've got 2 virtually brand new cars I haven't used for almost 12 months just sitting in the garage. Thinking of dusting them off but to be honest I can't determine if its worth it. Following this forum and the club facebook page both have been like a ghost town the last couple of years.

My son is now 7 and racing karts. He's always been keen on rc and drives my cars. I was thinking of giving him a run in the 2WD while I use the 4WD. Are there any juniors at Knox or are they mostly racing at Keilor??

Hi Jouster,

Well I enjoyed the club day and there was 7 drivers in 4WD stock,. our young bloke and 4 others were in junior \ rookie... had a great time.

Numbers are getting up there with the VICs - come on down!

Well that's not exactly what I was hoping to hear.

Hopefully things will sort themselves out. Somehow they need to attract a huge number of new people so they can rejuvinate things with fresh interest. That's gonna take a huge change of thinking from the current members though. In my opinion hey need to rip the covers off the track so everyone can use it at any time and welcome all the hackers that turn up mid-week with their kids. Obviously nobody will get premium conditions to race on...but hey...at least there will be more people introduced to the sport. It is off-road...the surface isn't supposed to be perfect.

Yet again I've said more than I should. I don't think I'm even a member now. No idea when membership was due. I've never received a notice for renewal.

Fingers crossed it builds up again. I'd really like to race my car...although I'm sure I'd be worse than ever after so long off the transmitter.

Try Keilor. A family-orientated club that has a thriving junior class.

And you will be welcomed , I'm sure.

What a lot of carry on. Some people on the commitee dont get along so they have stood down and will be electing a new commitee. Not the end of the world really. I have never felt unwelcome or encountered any hostility at the club. All this negative discussion is counter productive and hurts the hobby generally.

Agreed. My previous post is not gonna help in any way. Still my opinion...but in reflection it's part of the problem and I'd prefer to be part of the solution. Will delete now and give some thought to pulling my cars out again once the committee situation is resolved.

I truely do hope to see driver numbers return to those of 2015-2017.

Agree
@Jouster; bring a car down and you will find the racers are all awesome! Help from everyone. Very much like the days of old.

Please accept my apologies for my last few posts - I read the situation very wrong.

Over the last month .. maybe 2? I have been to each meet. The people are all awesome and the assistance my partner has gotten with her new car has seriously floored me, not to mention the help I got as well.
Today I had a cracker day and awesome racing with everyone. 4WD 13.5t stock and 2WD 21.5t. Smiles all round, laughs - the good times I remember and want our Son to have as well.

To top it off we had a BBQ going today and all sorts of goodies to buy. (Huge thanks to all that ran that as well!!)

Please do come on down and say "Hi" and see for ya self

hi guys, I am going to hopefully be at the next clubby. I am a Keilor member (I'll join Knox shortly to support). What are your juniors like? I've got an 8 year old that is keen to race just need to get some time into practicing for him. Is the track available for practice outside of club days?

Our 9 year old is racing and there seems to be a fair few other kids joining in each weekend

Track is open all the time - but carpets must stay in place - however join the knox RC facebook page as there are going to be official practice days where the carpets are off and timing loop on.

Come on and join in - our Son will love another kid to race and play with (The park near by gets a work out between races lol)
