Maybe that's how it was at your club (which club BTW?)

Maybe you could have started running at another club or try another class. Like VoneS Racer, I would have preferred he stay in stock and we find him more competition but it didnt happen.

How far is Moorebank from you? Would 1/8th scale there provide enough competition

Hell if there were more Pro Stock guys (more than one ) then I wouldn't have thought of going for Pro Tourers.

Maybe we should kidnap some of those Dandenong drivers .

OZDC its IMCC, now nitro has died down at the track i race at (Nowra one, the Berkely and Port Kembla ones are good because there are more "profesional" Nitro's there) and many of the clowns that are lazy with track help have gone too, all the rest of the ppl that race at IMCC are realy friendly and very helpful if you have any troubles


Moorebank.... too far!



I started racing stock and 540 (love it way more than nitro pro) because its so close and realy, its not about HP, its all about skill

what you said about marshalling is exactly right, Next time ur at the races, look for the people that yell out language that isnt suitable for a track (but is normal at the pub)when their car comes off the track or has a crash or what ever, and then look at how much attention they pay when they have to marshall, heck you would be lucky to find them out there!

Default standard pipe

I have drilled 6 holes in the baffle of the standard pipe and found that it improved performance all through the power band. It also made the sound little different and louder.

Well im not V one s racer but I can help a bit

The best tuned pipe for the GS15R is the Kyosho one however its pretty pricey, there is one made by Eagle which is also a pretty good performer, ive had both and the Kyosho is a fair bit better I think, it also comes with a polished manifold which may have made a fair bit of difference.


Cheers, Phil

The Kyosho exhaust is a good combo as it comes, but when I think about it you could put together a better one yourself. You could get the manifold that comes together with the Kyosho exhaust (it's larger than the stock one) and then go for a nice tuned pipe like an RB or Novarossi for example !

Just my thoughts...

Dont you think a RB or Novarossi pipe would be a bit of overkill

I use the kyosho pipe as well and its awesome

Not if it's at the right price . The Kyosho's good and yeah... get it or the Eagle pipe .

The Eagle's better value for money (around $40) though.

Looks nice.

You've probably been using those kit rubber tyres... they're a poor excuse for... well... dunno... anything ! I use them for driving out the front of my house.

If you weren't using the kit ones... what were you using?

Default tyres

because I usually do carpark racing i was using semi-slicks but i ask i guy at the track and he said foamies are fine because they clean the track. and i wasn't referring to rubber as being crap i ment that if i wana do some burnouts i buy some cheap rubber. i realise that it came across wrong after posting it.
