Re: 2017 Southland Indoor Champs

The Southland Indoor Champs is done and dusted. It was humbling to have racers from all over the South Island attend our race meeting. They came from Marlborough, Canterbury, South Canterbury and Otago. We had 47 cars over 7 classes and I thought the day was magic. Tough competition and a lot of new...

Re: AGM/Remits

After the run give them a quick clean up with wurth brakecleaner. (Careful with the brand of brakeclean as some are too aggressive and dry the tyre out.) I was fascinated to read this pit tip about tyres. Are many others doing this between runs? Does this help with grip for the next run? Thanks. Da...

Re: 2017 Southland Indoor Champs

I'm sure we could find someone for you to stay with. I'll put the word out on our FB group. If you fly in we can sort airport pickups for you too. In the mean time this video might help give you a feel for the event.

1996 NZRCA EP Off-road NZ Champs

The link below is to a video upload of the 1996 event held in Christchurch and hosted by the Harewood club. Although most of the action follows the progress of the 4 Invercargill drivers from the Southland Boy Racers club, there are other clips of the event that may interest. Notable gold is the com...

2017 Southland Indoor Champs

Our club is now in its 4th year and on the back of running a successful 2016 Southland Indoor Champs we will be holding it again this year. Although we are a long way from anywhere we are achieving around 25 cars on a club night. Our racers are excited to make this event happen again and are looking...

Re: Kyosho Pro-X

Yes, I think they are. Kyosho H pattern. I also search Kyosho Triumph on ebay. Love the Triumph, had one before the pro-x.

Re: Kyosho Pro-X

Good to see a Pro-X again. I bought one at the end of 94. Raced it for some years with good success. The 1996 off-road nationals on Christchurch I used the ProX to get 4th in mod.
It was a very heavy car from memory.
Often search ProX on eBay to see what's about.
Did you get this one in NZ?

Re: 2016 Southland Indoor Champs. 3 September.

Good morning. This link is to a 4min video of the highlights from our Southland Indoor Champs. This was a first for us and to have 3 from Chch and one from Dunedin made it pretty special. The finals in 13.5 blinky were as intense as any Nationals. Three different winners. This meeting introduced abo...

Can NZRCA events conflict?

The only public holiday in the second half of the year is Labour weekend. I saw on the NZRCA website an Island Off Road event is planned for that weekend. Will the Onroad SI Champs still go ahead also on that weekend as it has done for about 20 years? Or, will the onroad drivers of the south island ...
