That drag bike looks pretty sharp Shaun Have you tested the mini KP07 yet ?.

Xmas has been pretty good down this way too, i have eaten more ham than should be legally allowed but at least theres been plenty of beer to help it down.

We've been busy packing house ready for the move in just over a week or so. Packing and moving would have to be one of my least favourite things to do but ah well, what can you do.
Most of my toys are in boxes but I havent had any time to play anyway so I not really missing out too much.

All the best to everyone, happy new year and all that!.

Have'nt tested the drag bike properly just yet.. I've had the mini KP out at our last race meet, it really needs some grippy tires (OTO's), and some thicker oil in the rear shock.. Other than that it goes ok...


BTW,.. Happy New Year to everyone..! All the best, and may this one be better than the last one..

(Ben) Ah well, guess these things need to be done..

Lenny, give me a call asap (0409 615 809) and the same with anyone else that's keen on making it to Brendale tonight.. Just so I can see if it's worth it or not.. 3 riders should be ok, I reckon..

Let me know...

Shaun

Hey guys,

Made it through the new year and the house move, still settling in but it all went pretty well.
Anyone get any nice goodies from Santa ?.

Shaun, what time in two weeks, is it evening racing at Brendale all the time ?. Might be a tough one for me to make if it is but i'll try, i've been hanging to get out on the track again.

I hope they sort out the problem with the Gilston track, such a great venue it would be a shame to see it go to waste over a couple of go-carters misusing the track.

Hope everyone is well and things are good!

Hi Troy,.. your back, I thought you had abandoned us..! lol JK'n..

Good to hear your both settled in to the new house.. As for goodies from the man in red,.. No!,.. I have to make them myself now, did'nt you know..?

Racing at Brendale is every 2weeks, practice starts at 3.30pm, noms close at 5pm, and racing starts around 5.30-6pm.. Best thing about racing in the evening is, it's nice and cool and no probs with thermaling ESC's etc.. It would be a shame if you could'nt make it,.. the only other thing we could do is try to get in on the 1/5 TC days, thru the day, Sundays I think..

Yeah,.. I should go and have a look on the RCTech forum and see what's going on at Gilly these days.., hopefully something has been sorted out.. But a few meets at Brendale would be great too, till things get sorted..
