9th Sept Rd 4 Ninco DTM NC-2 - everything standard although any rubber tyres allowed

OOH OOH!!

Would that be Ninco Classic NC1 box standard but allowing repaints and lights for guests?

I am thinking first week October here...

Repaints, lights et al more than welcome. Everything else is completley box standard. Glue everything, reduce tyre diameters, shave chassis for flexing and add some weight and away we go. Good close racing.

We are now in our second week of racing NASCARs and I'm top of the leader board having won 4/4 races at the last race night - my first clean sweep! Got 36/40 points being closely followed by the pretenders **** on 33 points and Geoff on 31 points.

Anyway to let potential racers know that after the Fly Classic Endurance race on the 16th Dec with the following 5 weeks we will be racing front engined GT cars. The only mods allowed are slot-it wheels and any rubber based tyre of which Proslots are ones of choice although Slot-It P3s hook up well.

FI - the only rule is about rear tyres - must be Ninco FI tyres, other than that up to you. You can use Slot-it parts but to tell you the truth I run with the best and I use an SCX Ford Indy car with all original parts with a Scaly Mabuchi. The Scaly Indy cars are good and Ninco do well but the top car is still the SCX Ferarri 87! Stay away from Carrera - one of our members is determined to get his Carrera Sauber to be competitive - gives us all a good larf race after race, season after season. The new Scalextric cars could prove interesting. The main restriction is grip and while the ninco tyres are not bad they don't offer huge grip so a big motor does not normally help you.

Rally - standard although you can change tyres as long as they are rubber based - proslots are choice although P3 are good. SCX rule currently there is not a lot of difference - nobody has run the TS, Carrera or Autoart cars - carrera might be good. Limitations on which motors can be used though - either SCX (any one), Scaly/Carrera Mabuchi or NC1.

We are in the 3rd week of our rallying programme (carry on till final on 17/3) and I thought I'd post what we'd be running next

24th Mar - F1 (any car and parts although Scalextric mabuchi motor and Ninco F1 tyres are mandatory). Good mix of cars are competitive although stay away from Carerra models

31st Mar (for 5 weeks) - Unlimited GT (any car, motor, running gear) although tyres must be rubber. Proslot Toyoya, Slot-It Audi and Fly Porsche GT1 are the normal front runners.

The DTM series is about to start - you can race any of the manafacturers cars (except the latest carrera as they weren't out in time) but must keep standard parts although you can use any motor that comes with the manafacturers range of cars. Tyres are proslots (choice) or from the manafacturer

This series will run from 12th may thru to 9th June.

16th June - FI

23rd June for 5 weeks - Fly Classic - any from the range and we've expanded the choice of tyres to include the NSR range (Abslotsport.com stock these) which will be the tyre of choice

Hi Matt,

My run of working every thursday night during July has come to an end at last.

I'm off every Thursday in august so I'll see you next week.

I suppose I'd better soak my controller finger in WD40.

Hi All,

Due to the late release of the new Scalex NASCARS it has been decided to delay the start of the NASCAR mini series for 2 weeks in the hope that the new will be available by then.
The NASCAR mini series will now begin on November 10th and run for 5 weeks.

To fill in the gap we have decided to run 2 extra weeks of Fly Classic racing as follows;
October 20th Team Endurance Race (1 car, 2 drivers)
October 27th Individual qualifying and segmented finals
November 3rd Heats and move up finals
Any Fly or GB Track Classic car can be used, must use all standard parts bur rear tyres may be changed for NSR if desired.

If any one wants to pay us a visit you will be made most welcome.

Regards. ****.
