Hello David,

Yes, we will be able to run a 1:5 bike class this coming Saturday.

The club committee will take a little time to discuss adding 1:5 bike to our regular schedule, so I am not able to give you an answer today. The committee should all be there Saturday if you wanted to discuss when you may be able to race on a regular basis.

Anything else please let me know,

Michael Kirby
Secretary QRCCRA

excellent news. I'll definitely see you all there with the bike.
As a matter of fact, I just ordered an 09 mclarney. Pity it won't arrive before the weekend.

Well I'll still come for the meet, I know a few of the guys there and they've been keen in the past to let us race there as long as we have around 4-5 of us in the class.. I'm sure they'll stick us in for the day..

Still no word from Doug though..

Eden, looking forward to seeing the CF plates if you get them finished in time, all nicely machined and all..

C U all there maybe on Saturday..!?

Gidday Shaun,
I went to cut the plates last night and the computer on my mill has given up the ghost. I tried my laptop but it doen't have enough power to run the system. Unfortunately, I have to wait until my brother is back from Qld to come and try and fix the problem. I f he can't then it looks like I need to replace the computer totally.
Sorry, as soon as I get them cut I will send them to you.

Shaun,
Sorry if I wasn't clear but I do have an email from the club Secretary saying that they let us run a class of 1/5 Motorcycles this Saturday

WE ALL HAVE TO BE THERE (so we have 5 entries at least) .

Troy,
Encourage your missus to go to the Airport DFO with your mastercard for the day and come play at Brendale.

Eden,
I'm looking forward to seeing you again and I want to check out the RC truck?

Lennie,
Please come. Racing has been confirmed.

Ross,
It would be great if you can make it too.

Dave

I'll be there, sans credit card or otherwise.

Lenny we can road-trip up in my car if you like ?.

Dave, should we be worried about your relationship with michael kirby ?. sexy-tary ??

61DUb (Ross?), would be great if you guys could make it down, dont worry about being on pace, the track is the best way to learn!

pitts, thanks mate, got the motor! got it all installed but havent taken it for a run yet. I might get back to you for that xcelorin ESC, mines cheap with a capital C. I've got a growing list of parts (mostly spares) i want to get too.

I took the McClarney and the venom for a bash at Gilston last sunday, i swear the mcclarney (after some minor tweaking) has given me close to 5 seconds a lap and improved consistency heaps, i'm really happy with it. I didnt realise how much my old bike was slowing me down in the corners. I am convinced the biggest improvement comes from good forks but i can feel the benefits the chassis is delivering as well. Very happy, thanks Simon!.
The Venom was a bit of a shocker on the track, the ESC is pretty crap so you basically have to avoid brakes or just lock it up and hope for the best, it does handle well though, a bit of fiddling with the steering had it feeling really good. Its small enough that you dont really need much brakes at gilston anyway. I ended up just doing a section of the track instead of the whole thing because the pace just wasnt there but with the new motor and esc it should be much more interesting.

I hope we get a chance for a few warm-up laps at brendale, I think its been close to a year since i've run there.

I'm all set for Saturday, Count me in.

Troy, Sounds good. Do you know how to get there? Cause I don't!

Quick question... Brendale has covered pits with tables don't they. We only need our rc gear, seats & lunch?

You found your way there last time.....eventually

Correct, pits are covered with benches and power, I would recommend taking chairs though.

I may have offered a ride too hastily, The better half might need the car if she's not coming along!. Sorry Lenny, I'll let you know for sure tomorrow.

We can always load up the bike!
