Hey guys, it's been a while Been flat out with work, baby and all the other stuff that gets in the way of getting the toys out. I still have all the bikes and have the mamba 7700 in the McClarney at the moment. I took it out months ago, found a nice big smooth sweeper and had a ball tryiny to get some high speed slides going, other than that the RC has stayed in the cupboard.

I still cant see myself getting to meetings on a regular basis, but was wondering when the last meeting of the year is, maby I can sqeeze one in before the end of the year. Maby we can find a date when everyone can make it, one big meet before the end of the year??

Cheers
Simon

Simon,

Good to hear from you again.

We have two more race meets this year at Gilston.
The dates are the 23rd Nov & 7th Dec. Hopefully we'll see you there.

All the best for the bub & all.

Lenny.

HI Guys, sorry cant make it to Brendale tonight, its the better halfs birthday and i'm pretty sure blowing off dinner for racing would put me in the bad books.

Simon!, great to hear from you again, it'd be great if we could all swing a race meet before the end of the year.
Ben, could you do one of those dates as well ?.

Well I spoke to soon

Thomas is part of a band playing Christmas carols at Garden City shopping centre at lunch time today (Santa is arriving in case you didn't know) and then my father-in-law needs my help mixing concrete for a water tank.

Oh well. I guess it definitely going to be next Sunday for another round of the Gilston Moto GP.

The 7th would be the best chance for me, give me time to get the bike back to spec and my gear together. Who else thinks they are going to run on the 7th??

I'm guessing that there will probably be Shaun, Troy, Dave & myself as we seem to be the main regulars now.

Hey Simon, great to hear from you again, been a while.. Hope all is going well. The 7700 mamba eah, does that mean the fast bikes will be coming out too on the 7th..? Should maybe have 2 classes on the 7th, Supa Sport and Modified? I've got a spare Mod motor and ESC setup if anyone else wants to use it..?

I'll be there, i've missed to many rounds this year due to work and rain gettin in the way.. I'll be at the next 2 meets for sure.. (Fingers X'd)

Shaun I'll be putting the ss5800 back in,

mamba 7700 + long time since last race = big repair bill

Lenny, with me then we should be at 5, maby Ben may be able to sneek in a meet before the end of the year as well, then we would have nice grid

I'm going to get the bike out tonight and see if I can revive my batteries....

Ok, but I want Barry Sheene as my rider. I will also fit a shock each side of the swing arm to keep it in theme.

I'm going to have to pass on racing this weekend, somethings come up .
Just got my new radio too and i'm itching to test it out, ah well.

Simon/Ben, I might have to join Cobweb racing too, I'll run an Agostini pilot. Or maybe that should be Rainey since i'm only slightly dusty and not fully "cobwebbed"..

Magnuts - thats awesome, now i'm sweating on the postman getting here

1/5th scale EP Bike racing this Sunday!


Troy,

Do you remember how you 'piked out' and couldn't make it last weekend? - well we need you this Sunday!

I have confirmation from Chris that we can run our bikes at the Gold Coast Challenge on Sunday.

but we need as many bike as possible.

So far I think we have
Shaun, Lennie, Myself and possibly Marty

So please ask your missus for permission to come play.

Anyone else who has a bike is more than welcome to come too.

You can treat this as the warm-up to the big bike MotoGP on the 7th December when we might have 7 bikes coming to play.

I'll bring the Shade as usual
