With a lot of press activity of late, and a radio interview on Thursday morning, we’re hopping to see many new faces coming to join us at Uniquely Tasmanian Pavilion shed, at  Quercus Park , come along, see what we’re about, even have a race!!!!

We run a transponder system, where each car has a transponder, so when each car crosses the line, the computer automaticly counts it for us!! For the new people interested in having a race, do not let this deter you from joining in the fun!!!!! Hit the track and have a go, just means you’re laps don’t get counted.

The club also has a few of these transponders for rent at $5 a night, and to be returned to race control at the conclusion of the meet. There is only 4-5 up for rent, so you have to be quick to get one…..

This a reminder to all of the rules and restrictions that apply to the Short Course 10.5t class.

    Track looks fantastic guys – congrats. Hope race resumes with plenty of cars/trucks and is a heap of fun.Sad I can’t be there. 😦

  2. Im working to get The Age (Tasmania based area for Melbourne Paper) out but i’ll still be out for a look and watch!!

  3. Tim Parsons says:

    I might come out for a run with the old XX4. I only have the one battery pack myself so if anyone has a couple spare 7.4v stick packs I might be able to borrow that would be great. I will get some more but they wont arrive in time is all.

  4. I ma sure we can find osme spare packs somewhere, which plugs do you have on your car?

  5. Tim Parsons says:

    Have bullet plugs from the speedy that just plug straight into those hard case type batteries.

  6. Tim Parsons says:

    I could make up an adapter ? Might have to dig around to find a spare plug but I think it should work. How long are the leads on your batteries ? So I will know how long to cut my speedy wires ?

    Cheers mate. That would be fantastic… Looking forward to getting the old beasty out. Its been years. xx4 is 16 years old now.lol

    • Greenie says:

      errrr, leads on the batts are this………..long!!! LOL!!!
      If you make it short, it should be right. The Turnigy leads are almost as long as the batt, so fairly long.
      I THINK i have a spare male Dean plug, and will have the soldering iron out there too, so we can finish the job out there. I dont have the female bullet tho…….

    • scottg says:

      Great to see you heading out for a 10EP race Tim. I went indoor racing on the Gold Coast with a mate last week, and he’s still packing a XX4 as well. And he was quick!

  7. I have a couple of spare deans, but no bullet plugs i’m afraid. could always just solder a deans on 😉

  8. Tim Parsons says:

    Not a problem lads. Have already made up an adapter plug to suit for it so is all ready to roll. Cheers guys. Should be a good one.

  9. Leo Lorenzen says:

    If you want to try something Team Durango Tim, I could set a vehicle sorted for you tomorrow. 🙂

  10. Leo Lorenzen says:

    Also can hook you up with some batteries

  11. Tim Parsons says:

    Thanks Leo. I have actually been eyeing off the Yokomo Bmax4. Will see how things go with the xx4 first and see if its something I might like to get into more.
