Haven't posted anything for what seems like a year, and when I finally do it's to have a whinge. Must be an age thing :?

Pro12 Haters?

I have to say I am gobsmacked that the rule concerning Pro12 race lengths will be changing from 8 to 5 minutes in the new year. I'm trying to get my head around the why and how this ridiculous thing has happened- I would have thought that no club that runs these grandfathers of electric onroad racin...

Re: Roll over masts?

Yes most 1:12th kits still come with a fibreglass or graphite mast. You used to twist your aerial around the mast, and hold it in place with the little rubber boot.
Not legal in NZ, which is a shame as they would make indoors with 12th's become almost self marshaling :wink:

Re: Losi 22 carpet conversion

We found that once all the oil was gone, the factory diff stopped leaking. So I don't see the issue :P

A 1/8th 4wd Pro12?

Re: Waikato Indoor Offroad 2wd Buggy Enduro Challenge -April

Thanks Paul at Prosport RC for the drive, had some fun and enjoyed watching Roger fighting his private battle with the inner Nitro Truggy Demon - he got smoother and quicker all day (y) I found the new L#*i 22 3.0 very forgiving and the reliability of that coupled with the ORCA electrics was fantast...

Re: 2016 NZRCA IC Offroad Nationals

The track crew have done an excellent job. Over a hundred cars going at it for 4 days didn't tear it up anywhere near as much as you would think.
The catering was as always top notch too - anyone going down for the I.C Nats won't be dissapointed (y)

You could fix the F1 dive bomb issue by making everyone attach their wings and wheels using plastic screws/nuts.
Upon contact crap would just shear off like the real ones :wink:

Re: 2016 NZRCA Electric Offroad Nationals

Chin up boys I'm sure it'll be a fantastic meeting despite the best efforts of some!
Looking forward to some 1:10th action on a brand spanking new track.
