Hi Guys,

Glad to see the forum being used!

Austin has booked the club car for the 24th October just to confirm and we look forward to welcome him to the class and the club.

I use shoe goo for body repairs and have done for some time, its also excellent for sticking NiMl cells together in side by side configuration, helps keep the pack robust in an accident.

One thing I use when repairing shells is plasterers tape, this is like a nylone mesh approx 50mm wide, available from all builders merchants, I use it in a similar manner to how you use fibre glass matting.
Hi Richie, Cheers mate - a couple of good suggestions there - it seems Shoe Goo is good for many things! Anybody tried it to mend shoes yet?!!

Fantastic meeting today - cheers guys.

Congratulations to Nick who thoroughly deserved to win. Unlucky Jamie, better luck next week - your car was running brilliantly all day.

We may well see two heats worth next week - fingers crossed.

James

Yeah Nick - even Shoe Goo couldn't repair your shell!

Was good fun racing with you - I'm looking forward to doing it all again next week already.

Cheers for that - very kind! I'm still wondering what you were hitting to do that much destruction to your shell and still win the races - that was a good looking car when we first saw it this morning - not looking too good by the end!

the lexan/plastic it was made out was way to brittle so even the slightest hit it cracked!

All looks good to me EXCEPT number 6 - no Sport Tuned motors - stock 27T sealed silver cans only. The Sport Tuned is a 23T and the wrong colour! :?

Hi Justin,

James will enjoy this racing - it's good close fun. To reiterate your point - there's no funny rules - we just want this to be a welcoming class to allow juniors and newcomers the opportunity to explore the sport and improve their driving skills. It's very much a 'race what you brung' class...

As Richard said, the only rule that we want to stress is the 27T silver can rule - this is so that everyone has the opportunity to compete on a level playing field, keep running costs down and help to make the cars a bit more controllable.

Hopefully this will be a spring board for James' entry into the 'full fat' touring car racing in a season or two.

We look forward to racing with James next Saturday...if there's any initial set-up tips you'd like help with - just ask.

Cheers

James

You can throw a heap on the track (like mine) and still do well
all what you would benifit from is a handset which you can limit the steering travel on
