    Tonight I fixed a few things:

    Glued lump of lead back onto floor pan of Austin's Cobra roadster.

    Glued windshield onto Gascarnut's Cobra roadster.

    Glued tail plane onto Da Vols' Capri RS.

    Glued interior into Beejay's Ferrari 312P Le Mans Coupe.
    Finished installation of Ninco magnet into the empty hole in the chassis of BeeJay's Ferrari. I glued a brass shimstock plate across the bottom of the hole to keep the magnet from puling through. It registers 460 grams on the Magnet Marshall! Unfortunately I can't raise the mag because the motor bearing is in the way. Motor is a Pro Slot 26k Euro Mk 1, so I think it has the torque to handle the load. It is geared 9:30, so that acts as a torque multiplier. This may end up being a fast car on Scalextric.

      I'll say.



      Scaleauto 26k vs. King 25k.



      Looking forward to this race! Any word from the Bart-man?

        That's a lot of fixin' there, RL. Be sure to submit your invoice to the organizers.

        Avatar courtesy of DK, incidentally; it represents my eternal optimism vis a vis final proxy podium status.

        That's one scary car that BeeJay has put together. Ironic that now he's down under but the car's aint. Kinda miss having him around this last while eh?

        Do you figure that maybe the Bart-man has a Bart-phone down in his Bart-cave?

          Hey, Van, didn't your first RAA 956 pull like 600gms and pick up the track at Ace?

            Bart-man is on the case. He reported that he is ready when we are. He also reports that he misses everyone here, but fells oddly claustrophobic and sweaty when confined to a cyber-forum. Or words to that effect. Nevertheless, he is installing a cyber component to his hobby shop, in order the keep the "bricks 'n' mortar" afloat.

            Last night, Wayne was to conduct a poll of Shoreline club members about running the GPR cars next Wed. I doubt if we could do all 40 cars in an evening, but maybe we could.

              Can't wait to join his new forum. Better hope the mods don't notice the link, eh?

                  Tony, didn't anybody tell you the GPR will never end?

                  The race at Bart's is canceled!

                  We will be substituting Wayne's World, a 4 lane Scalextric track, which hosted part of the first round of the RAA '07, and is part of the vast network of Shoreline tracks. We will also be racing on Steve's Area 51.

                      S'alright by me - we shall wrock at Wayne's instead, then.

                      Let's hope the man is ready for prime time ~ this Global Proxy Race has been attracting attention from the whole civilized world, as well as !!

                      I will miss Bart's race poster for the event, but it will be a treat for Wayne to have some fast cars on his track, yabetcha.

                        Does Wayne really drive a Pacer?

                          No, he has a 15HP, single cylinder Craftsman riding lawn mower. He wears a little white, short sided helmet with a blinking yellow light. Tires are Bridgestone. Gear ratio is rumored to be 13 to 1. He's been seen around town chewing Nickorette and making motor noises like he's shifting gears. It's been a few months since he's picked up after his dog so his lawn is littered with DAWG mines. He's been eating hot dogs and sucking the jelly out of the center of a donut. Wayne's ready to host the GPR.

                              I know at least one car that won't be fast and the body might fly off and the gear might let go....and then the will start....

                                And some of you contendas may want to make the trip once the GPRace is scheduled because me or Mike is gonna win the GT race. There, I said it....My Lancia was built for this track and Mike's vac formed blob is faster so we need some guest drivers just to eliminate any thought of wrong doing on our part... JT, RL and DK I'm thinkin' of you...
