Hey Neil,
Had a few bits of spare thick plywood and some old spare cut offs of decking, so out came the jigsaw and made a few (one for starters) of those kicker jumps I've been going on about... Just have to get some thin ply to cover them with and jobs a good'un!


Be good to see how it works when covered in carpet!

Then I can (if wanted) make a few more different ones with whats left of the cut offs!

Lets see how far the cars fly on the one I've got set up for now - taht is if/when I get the thin plywood! Its about 3x car height, with a nice swept kicker lip to it and then I've got enough to certainly make one 5-6x car height..). So things could get quite airbourne!!

All we have to do is try and find something suitable for longer landing ramps and see where we place them! I wqas thinking of some 'simple' basic triangle ramps for landing again with whats left of the thin plywood on them to help cushion the landing... Suck it and see a bit I reckon...

Neil

Just to confirm - there is 240v power and chairs/tables available?

Planning to come up this Thur and then come up with Jack on the 27th -school half term so no problem with a late night for him

Cheers

Rob

Thanks, Neil

Yes, need to get some practice both driving indoors and with Fastrax tyres

I'll have to come up with another plan for getting Jack some indoor carpet running before the MK GP - not sure if I can persuade the missus to let me keep him out until 11.30 on a school night - she has the job of getting him up in the mornings and for some reason does not understand how important model car racing is

Cheers

Rob

Lino has been purchase for some more slippy stuff as it went down so well last time. This stuff will be polished when first laid and left like it for a few weeks at a time. The shiny board can be used in other places...

Also have some cardboard rolls to roll the carpet up on at the end of a nights racing.

Excited!!! Can we start tonight

You love it!.... James Rumble said if I get the lino shiney enough he'll throw some ill shapes on it afterwards

Got some other bits and bobs today..... should be fun tomorrow... just hope the foam arrives in time

All: We'll be doing 3 heats and 2 finals for all tomorrow, so those who like to go early get a final in and then have the choice to stay/go.

Hi all, planning on racing tonight for my first time at SHRCCC. I see on your site the postcode is GU9 9LG, I assume this is for the outdoor track, but I gather the indoor is on the same site, is this right?

Yes, same site, the building is a little further along lower weybourne lane than the postcode tells my sat nav though, your looking for a sea cadet building next to the fishing club.
only 1 building on the site so you cant miss it

Alternatively go on google maps (93 lower weybourne lane) in satellite view, thats the building your looking for!
