Use natural rubber guys...... SBR cost me a bad race in AU and then when I got it back and changed it missed the Edo race by 1 day..... I wonder where I would have finished if I just could have ran on my average for those 2 races.....

Seems most of the discussion is turning up on Facebook Paul. Dilworth showed his chassis this morning, Ben Kernan and Jim Struckel both posted their finished cars on the 21st.
Eventually all photos will make their way here and onto Slotforum.  But for the moment.... it's F.B. I guess.

Yesterday marked the four week mark in the countdown to Round 1 of the series at North London. A good time perhaps for an update of how the cars are progressing and a gentle enquiry directed towards one or two people who have been a bit quiet since the circus started up.

Al Bond's car is being worked on, as Al has posted here in the last few days. Looking great so far.
L13Al04_zps768a9976.jpg

Bob Suzuki assures me that he's working on his car.

Brian McPherson's car is done and went in the mail to the UK today. Remember to keep breathing, Brian.
L13Brian04_zps79f6c4ae.jpg
L13Brian03_zps4ac50021.jpg

Jairus and Maximo's entry is done and has been tested at a couple of locations.
L13JairusMax02_zps9765a640.jpg
L13JairusMax01_zps2bda1783.jpg

Jim Struckel's car is done. I think this is a joint entry with Gary Vogeler. Is that correct?

Pablo's car is complete and in the mail to me too. There are photos of it here somewhere but they've escaped my net at the moment and I can't find them for love nor money.

Ray Fellow's car seems to be nearly done. Come on Ray!
L13Ray02_zps8015392c.jpg
L13Ray01_zps7ddf21c9.jpg

Rod Morrison currently has a body on the way from Ohio to Scotland and is still building.

Graham Walker and Sam Weldon's chassis is done and is just awaiting a painted body.
L13GrahamSam_zps2fafa1b3.jpg
L13GrahamSam01_zps9bdf8d70.jpg

My car has a completed chassis and was tested last night with a temporary practice body. Ran well enough.

0703130061000px_zps05d05d6f.jpg

Steve King is making good progress on his car and is intending to have it in the mail from Sydney on Monday next.

Mike Zimmerman's car has a chassis which is a clone of mine and is currently in St Louis while Mike decides which body to employ.
250213003950px_zps353630fa.jpg
250213002950px_zps7e6649d0.jpg

Steve Ploskunak's car is done and after testing two body shapes Steve has come to a decision and a new body is, I believe, being painted.
L13SteveP01_zps4449a6d4.jpg

Team Evil Minnows were still looking for a body when I last enquired a few days ago.

Tony Davey's car is done and has been widely admired on Facebook.

Ben Kernan's car has tested and seems complete. Ben has posted a few chassis pics but they seem to have avoided me as well.
L13Ben01_zps14c453ce.jpg
L13Ben02_zpse85c0c29.jpg

John Dilworth has been busy but seems on course to make the starting line.
L13Howmet01_zpsd9dfad8d.jpg

Andy Brown-Searle's car has been done for a while and I'm guessing that Andy has been stress testing it against the Raceway 81 walls night and day for the last month.
L13Andy02_zps4f1adf77.jpg
L13Andy01_zps6068686a.jpg

That's the sum of my knowledge at the moment.
Jaak Beentjes, John Austin, Kevin Cosgrove, Manta Ray, Dennis Hill and the Barney Poyner/Ralph Klose Dynamic Duo could update us here if they're still intending to build a car for the series. Team Evil Bucks, comprising Tony P and Gator Bob, are a further mystery and direct probing has so far failed to elicit any response one way or the other. At this point they could magically produce a rabbit out of their evil hat and come up with the series winner, or their mainstay could be fully occupied with politics in the r/c world and may have to bow out.

Wouldn't life be a bit poorer without a mystery or two?
Best regards,

Steve, that is interesting about Pablo's car.  I can't seem to find the thread where he posted the build up either?!?!?!
Last I talked to him in email, he was satisfied with it and had not gotten it into the mail yet. So I posted that on FB that you should "Stop watching the post box". At that time the thread was available Pablo's forum page.

Now.... missing.

(Another mystery.)

Could have Greg moved the thread into Pablo's section now on the blog? Just a thought. Hard for to search or look thru from the mobile app.

You betcha!  I just ordered the parts online 5 minutes ago!  It's going to be 4 rail x .047" rattler with the motor and rear bracket mounted on top of a chunk of .032 brass plate. :secret:

Hey! This is the first time I noticed that we have a "Proxy" section of Slotblog!  When did that happen? Seems previous proxy races were posted in Thingie section... including the last Choti race.

Since we got lured into this, I thought I'd hook you up here with a pic of the chassis I reeled out for Team Evil Minnows back in January (before I had flounder back to school...), but with body and motor I used for a light-test back then. Marty'll be hooking up the real runny-bits, and The Duffster will tackle fish-flaming the racing body.

 

Catch you later...

In view of the areo inclination many of the late projects ate taking, I may very well use an alternate car to the one I originaly proposed. Modifications to its present state will be minimal, only thinner fronts & 3/32 axle.

Okay... I'll give you this one. The one and maybe two tracks that Steve has hinted at for the Pacific NW run are set up for .020 and .030 braid depths.
AND....I'm pretty sure that the North London track is .020.

And the SSME track is all over the place. :shok:

 

Here is my entry, finally.

 

I've wanted for a long time to try hinging the pans on the outside and stopping in the centre, a bit like the old western saloon doors.

 

So I'm christening this my 'Pub Door' chassis. :huh:

 

Dunno if it will work, so there is only one to find out.

Hey Ben, pretty cool idea letting the turn marshall see the flag ! :)

 

Gentlemen Lucky 13 participants, I would like to give you a heads up on my recent USPS mailing experience sending my car to the UK.  I mailed it at the local post office, Priority International, on 6 March, cost me about $42. I was told it could not be insured for more than about $60.  So, off she went.  The time of delivery they estimate is 6 to 10 working days.  Today has been 10 working days and still no show.  For $42 I got not enough insurance, no tracking confirmation, and an overdue delivery.

 

I learned online at USPS.com that if I had scheduled a home pickup, it would have been cheaper, insurable for it's true value, and trackable. Taking it to the post office handicapped me. 

 

Why am I crying and telling you this ? Because time is getting short, and I want you to know International mail service is SLOW. 

On my customs form, I identified it as a "Toy car".  Maybe it is stalled at UK Customs.  Hopefully it shows up soon.

 

Good Luck, guys,  I look forward to great competition. :D

Hope it gets there Paul. Fingers crossed. :huh:

I was surprised with the effort of our Aussie Post.

I left the package on Thursday 14th, at cost $17.20 and it arrived the following Wednesday.

Sydney to London in around 6 days.

I too hope yours gets there Paul.
"Road Warrior" left here on Thursday last week and arrived in Wembly today.

Once again: 6 days and that is normal for anything I send to Steve.

I may have used a bigger box than needed, and that is my fault.  Lesson learned. Use small boxes, and mail from home via internet, not the post office.

Lucky 13 days to go until Round 1 at North London.

First laps for the early arrivals last night with the track still too slippery for serious research but they still made an inspiring sight.

White #8 Team Lowrider car is still wearing temporary bodywork while the real deal gets sufficient Evil dripped on to it.

Pablo, and others; I currently have three packages to be collected from the Post Office which will be done tomorrow, one with a Customs charge attached to it. Parcel Force has a fourth package with a rather more substantial Import VAT charge attached. These won't be all proxy Thingies but some will be. Those still awaiting news of their car should take heart, but still get your cars mailed out as soon as possible please.

:shok: To say that sucks is an understatement! Sorry your car hasn't arrived. Hope it turns up not only for your car actually being safe but for your participation in the race series.

Rest easy, gentlemen. Pablo's car arrived safely this afternoon.

Apparently it had been giving Her Majesty considerable pleasure ...

Pleasured by Pablo's Thingie. How very dear.

 

The sled & rolling stock for the Team Evil Minnow entry has arrived at Duffy's, to be dressed kissed & sent off anon. Then it's MY arthritic digits that get crossed.

Jairus, see post # 122 for an earlier pic of the chassis... but, honestly, I can't wait till y'all get to see the Duffmeister's paint work on it!  ;)

Har! I can't wait either...

Currently kinda busy, & I know when I start putting up Vanity Shots I have the potential to eat up a good bit of time; into the post first, Vanity (saith the Preacher) later. (Well, he didn't say that, exactly.)
