Yes the flood has been one of the worst natural disasters ever seen in Australia, but it has brought a city together, the amount of people who have been willing to volunteer their time to help clean up is amazing, and everything was well organized which was truly amazing. Very testing times for so many i am one of the lucky ones who had no flooding at my house but a few houses 2 streets away were up to the 2nd story in water.

Yes 6 cars is great! I am always looking forward to the monthly race meets as nothing beats having the 6 cars running and having drivers of equal skill level, makes for some interesting passing moves

Track's looking great John. Would love to be able to have a belt around it sometime. Ahh, well.

Glad you managed to keep your toes dry an have turned back the flood tides, but did you have to send them down this way??!!

Thanks, all of my cars had mag removed with weight added, most cars with all my v8's weigh about 110 grams except new FG which i generally run around 100 all cars had MJK Tyres except my Winterbottom FG and another FG which had 20x10 slot it F22 compound race rubber which i think performs a little better on my track

Hi All,
Its been a few months but here are some pics of how the track and Scenery is progressing, we have also changed from PBPro to the new APB with the high power mod and the lastest version of SSD Console and our race meets starting to get very popular too, i will also put a link in to more scenery pics

Looks great! Do you have a race coming up that you're wanting to get the scenery ready for? I'd love to see some more racing action on that track.

John,

What tricks do you use to keep the V8's on the track without so many deslots when you race without magnets, is it the tyres, road surface, added wegiht, lowering car body or just good drivers?
