Hey Scott!... well, I havenít used an RC car for a few months now! Definitely into the bikes. Although Jeff is building the pro-tourer I bought about 6 months ago in the hope I may use it!

I bought another SB5 that hasnít been used all that much and had some bits I wanted like Edieís swing arm Box, ZH fork legs (2) Front brake set up, carbon spokes and ZH hubs and no striped threads! Unlike my bike. I already have the light scale swing arm. So I went about building one bike up from the two. Thereís still some bits to sort out and set up. It may be too much of a rush for tonight. Weíll see if I can get away early from here but I donít think so.

Howís your bike going man? Been able to run it a bit?

Hey Rob,

Bikes going well, just needs the usual maintenence.
I have had a few runs with it, the track here is very coarse and is chewing the front tyre up big time.

The back tyre is still wearing but seems to handle it easier than the front, I'm thinking the front is a tad to hard which is why the tyre is chewing out.

Track is ok but no way near as good as Brendale.

I will upload some piccys soon, how was racing tonight?

Cheers

Scott

Hi Scott,

Yep, racing on Fri night was pretty good, a shame you weren't still up here, you would have had a fun night. Was also nice to finaly have a rain free meeting for a change. Was a big night too seeing it was the last race meet for the year, there were to extra TC classes added 6 heats in total. In the bikes there was, Adrian, Bruce,Chance, Lenny and myself. Adrian was really fast and consistant all night. Chance was quick as always but he had some issues with his bike here n there through the night. Bruce put in some really good laps too, he's driving alot more consistantly now. Lenny was alot more consistant aswell, I think he's getting his mojo back after his long leave from racing the bikes. lol Everyone beat me in the first qually, I was using my new chass and forgot to transplant my transponder. In the final Chance, Adrian n I had some good battles, we were really close and swapping positions alot over 3 or 4 laps but then Chance's bike shut down, due to his machanic. Just wish we had someone to film the final for us..

Here's the link to the results,.. http://www.myrcm.ch/au/qrccra/201212...kes/index.html

Hope all is well down there in pollyland? Take care over the chrissy break..

Cheers



Cheers

Well, the bike is all back together and almost ready to go however the ESC plug was already dodgy when I got it and now it needs replacing. You wouldn't believe I can't find anywhere that stocks plugs and pins!! Any suggestions locally? otherwise ebay it is.
