We’re back racing this week, and with school holidays upon us we’ll see some visits from our occasional younger brigade, and potentially a few away as well (enjoy lazing on the Fijian beach Richard!). It’s a non-points week this week, so an ideal opportunity to try a different class, and to experiment with car setup.
For those who took part in the “School of R/C” session on suspension geometry after the AGM last week, here’s the on-line “Intro to Setup” that I talked about: http://www.actionrc.com.au/?page_id=14. If you have setup questions, don’t hesitate to ask and we’ll see what we can come up with to help get you going faster.
Keep a close ear out as well. We hear that the new Goodwood Offroad Model Car Club have a huge pile of pristine clay on-site at their Hobart venue, and crafting of a new 10th offroad track will be starting tomorrow (Monday). Road trip coming soon!
And a reminder too about the Scotsdale Show race meeting. Racing will take place Friday night and Saturday on a hard surface (I think from memory it’s tennis or netball courts), with classes for all different types of cars. See Ian Scott on Thursday for more details.
Hey guys I may not be there this week as I am waiting on upgrade parts for my slash and I broke a part earlier this week unfortunately fingers crossed I’ll be there though
what did u break?i may have a spare.
It’s a part on the rear I think it’s called the stub axle?? Does that sound right?
yer i got one for $5,i can bring it thursday if u want.
Nice one Derek, the rc community working together, liken it!!!!
I think they were my old ones that i sold to them when Adam was in the Novice Class with his Slash!
I’ll be out with my tourer (Parts Arrived today and hopefully be ready buy tonight) & the Slash will be out continuing its good run with the Protrac Suspension Kit!
Also got the night off from work too! L8r James
Ok I’ll see if my parts turn up Derek if they don’t I shall purchase that of u mate thanks
And ooh nice I’m waitin on my protrac kit to 🙂
Better than Stock Suspension set-up, ive had it for 9months and nothing has broken yet!
wow thats awesome have u got proline powerstokes also ? im gonna get those aswell i think….is it a drastic change in handling with the protrac??
I do have the Powerstroke Shockies with it also, i havent noticed much in handling wise but its better in durablitiy also there is an proline performance steering kit also i do have that on-board my Slash!
If you need some setting for the Suspension Set-up between on-road or off-road im happy to give them away! Im an tall person & normally based at the old wooden table that is there! L8r James
I’m pretty sure I know who u are I’m still new and a bit shy to talk to people ATM haha I’ll have a chat to yah on Thursday though
Well ProTrac kit is 95% on but the standard tools u get with yah slash aren’t long enough to put the rear back on and my tools ain’t turned up from eBay yet bummer
I used my stock tools that i got with my slash to convert it over from Stock Suspension kit to Protrac kit, Also have a look at Squirrel’s Videos on Youtube how to install the Protrac Kit then i wrote his steps down then i went to convert it ovet!
