I think the Brendale all scales BBQ day is the following Sat weekend, not the 27th.
Were still on for this Fri night tho. Bikes or no bikes I'll still be there. (or running the 1/10 tourer)

I really need to get some quality track time to get myself and my bikes sorted.

Finding all the bent bits on my bikes answers some of the handling problems, looking in the mirror answers the rest .

I set up a track at the netball courts the other day using plastic cups, I added some corners similar to Brendale i.e sweepers and a tight chicane so this should help a bit.

Any word on those tyres from Formby's at all?

I will need to buy tyres regardless, do you happen to have any spares you could part with for some cash?

Any do you happen to know if any other bikers are going on Friday?

Venom.

I was going to order them from O/S but formbys are out of the V1 and 2WheelHobbies are closed for another couple of weeks so I was trying to avoid paying high aussie prices.

No worries. I have a few sets of 1/5 scale tires at home but I'm not sure about venom ones. I'll check to see if I have any spare ones when I get home.

Scott, I'm still waiting on a reply from formby. I did get time last night to contact them so I sent one this morn. I asked about the 3x V1 rears and 2x V1 fronts for you. Ive still got a few sets here if your desperate. I've got a set of Y'spoke wheels too.

Hey Eden, what PMT's do you have? I'm after 2x 200 cut rears and 1x 200 cut front. I'll see what reply I get from formby first tho. Also, when you coming up next, wanna come up for the all scale day?

The club web site says that it is this Saturday (27th)
There is no more Friday night racing for the rest of the year.
I can't make it unfortunately

I had a look on the club website but found nothing about any race day on the calendar. I tried downloading the pdf from my mobi but had no space left. But speaking to geff he didn't seem to think it was this weekend. Oh well, I'm still going. I'll get geff to blow the dust off his KP.

I'm pretty sure it will just be 1/5 scale bikes running. You'll have my donner bike to run anyways so no probs there, and I've seen you run it with no problems at all, it'll just be a matter of you getting in some track time before the meet starts so you've got your head around the track. I think youll do fine..

C u this arvo at the netball courts.
