Red face New Member ! Sydney XRX8

Hi guys and girls,

My name is Alex, i am new to this forum and also quite new to the 1:8 scale GP cars.

A little about me..

I have just been racing around my Traxxas 4-Tec for quite some time now trying to get a feel for the hobby, i really enjoy it so i made a new purchase, a Xray RX8 2013 Spec, i have just finished building it and awaiting its start for the first time..

I usually like to go down to the RC track in Whalen, I have already met two extremely knowledgeable individuals, Matthew and Ian, ( If you guys are a part of this forum, thanks again !)

I have been reading that races will soon begin there also a club will be forming, if so, i am in !

I could not find the correct place to post a introduction, if this is the wrong place im sorry

To sum it up, i look forward to meeting everyone at some point, i will appreciate any feed back or advice! C&C welcome !!

Pictures and Specs...

Nice car!

Not sure if you have been to Moorebank yet, but plenty of top 8th scale racing there too.

Just a note: I suggest you run an INS box. Not only is it required under IFMAR rules, but it also keeps your filter cleaner.

Default A little Help for you Alex

Hi Alex looks real nice, have attached some links to help you.

You can race as you know 1/8 at Whalan, not sure how many they have racing yet.
Besides Whalan you can race 1/8 at

Penrith PDNR link attached http://www.pdnracing.org.au/images/10/

Moorebank Liverpool link attached http://www.moorebankraceway.com/

Next race day for Whalan is Sunday 13/4/14
Next race day Moorebank Sunday 4/5/14
Next race night Penrith Tuesday 8/4/14 Tonight

Alex with the choice of any of those 3 clubs mate & they race alternate days which helps. I don't think you'll go wrong. Enjoy & have fun

PS Here's a link to the Australian rc tech forum. All the clubs mentioned above have treads on here.

Cheers Daz
