Normal time, so around 9:30am. Start time may be pushed back a little
depending on the condition of the track, but hopefully that won't happen.

Step away from building the new AE RC10B5 and go to bed ready for racing tomorrow (today now) I'll try be there a little earlier to help with track work hardening up the soggy spots.

Racing Mick.

Keyboard warrior with post after post
But on the serious side another great days racing and again thanks to all those that help out in anyway to making racing happen and thank you to those that drained the puddles yesterday. I ran soft AKA Enduro's after racing and they where great and I should have used them in the finals just showing how clean and firm the track surface was.

See you all next time,
M. Ellis

WildManSweeping we call him. True to his word, Mick got to the track early and worked hard to prepare the track for all to use - thank you Mick - what a legend.

Thanks for cooking the BBQ Mark...

Nice driving Smeddy... Despite my best efforts to drive you off the track on several occasions you finished on top.

Thank you to all who took time out of your day and went out of your way to give me tips, and help me set up my car.

Great day! Thanks

A big thanks to everyone who helped out with the track today. A special thanks to Michael Ellis who didn't stop helping prep the track all day, the club would also like to thank Michael for his kind donation.

Hey bill I noticed when I popped your steering link back on , your rod end looked a bit thrashed probably why it popped off, but a good thing to do is place a countersunk washer with the flathead screw will stop it from coming off .

Thanks for the tip - will do.

It came to my attention during the meet that my rod ends were flogged out. A bit of preventative maintenance is required.

Thanks for putting my car back together during the race.

I agree, good work Michael. Good work to everyone that makes these meetings happen actually, you are very dedicated. I am just getting back into racing, (Don't worry I am one of the ones that will help where possible). Having a ball at the moment, cheers.

Hey guys
I'm planning to start racing truggy class at your club but have a couple of questions..
What tyres are you guys using? And what type of transponder would I need?
I just need a bit more practice (to try and keep the truggy off its roof!!!) but I can't wait to get down there for a race soon
Thanks

Most guys use ibeam tyres in soft compound.

Mylaps transponders are the ones to get, hobby habit sell them as would most shops. If you can't get one before the next race meet the club have transponders you can borrow for the day.

Hi Wiz- as Nathan said- AKA I-Beams most of us run, They give you the most grip for SDMCC surface, RC HobbyZone have them on the shelf in pre-mount or tyre/rim packs.
As for your transponder, Hobby Habbit have them on the shelf, they are a dear item, however its a buy once thing!
The club has 10 recharged transponders in which you can use on any race day, Just punch a hole in your window of your shell, transponder goes inside, with clip on outside. Easy as that- Don't worrie about being on your roof, we all do that, come up and enjoy yourself, its a great day, any help your after don't hesitate to ask ANY member, everyone helps at our club- is how we all learnt mate. We give you 3 meets at a visitors rate, if you join, your Sunday's fee is $15- were can you have fun all day for that money-SDMCC you can
See you up there soon
