    errrrrr.... not too good!!! LOL!!!! I normally race on a multi surface track, tarmac, wood, concrete, artificial grass, carpet, and so on. dont get on the clay that much and it showed. It was a 3 final system that day, 6th in the first, 3rd in the second, and second till i broke in the final final. So i was getting my setup dialled, but had some horrible luck through out the day. broke 3 times and over heated twice, and killed a motor in one of those overheating in the qualifying.
    but, was a BLAST!!!!!!!!
    was racing against clubs from all over the state, was fantastic fun!!!

    mate you'll love it!! it can be an absolute BALL, racing!!! a lot of people do take it VERY seriously, but stay clear of them and enjoy it!!!!
    me and the boys have a blast!!!!!


    Down in Tasmania, we are quite lucky. The furthest track is 2 hours away at the other end of the state.

    We have one multi surface track here(soon to be here) in Launceston where i live, which I'm race Director of.
    The old venue that our track was in, went under, so we lost our shed, BUT we have found a new one to setup a new track in soon.

    To the north, at Latrobe, we have the 8th scale track (where the Photos above are from), which is only a 50 minute, to an hour Drive from Launceston

    and to the south, 2 hours drive there is a dedicated model park, that has BOTH a 10ths scale offroad, and purpose built, 10th scale on road track. I'll be there racing in January, I'll do my best to take some good pics of the tracks.

    so we're very lucky to have so many dedicated clubs, that all work very hard to maintain these tracks!!!

    There's a just for fun fall/winter series around here one weekend a month. At least 40 guys, gals, and kids come out, race, and have fun. I didn't really intend on doing any racing when I got my Slash, but man, I raced once, and I'm hooked. There are some people (mostly the teenagers) who get WAY to competitive about it, but I don't pay any attention to them and just race and socialize and have fun. Even marshalling can be fun.

    thats the way man!!! it's got nothing to actually do with racing somethings, its just the fun you have being there!!!

    some of the BEST race meets i've had, have been ones after or before a point series. noone is really trying that hard, and everyone is just enjoying the track time.
