GTD40 Club AGM 2002

Hi all,
Now that the club's sprint / hillclimb season has finished. Don't forget that the AGM will be taking place on Sunday October 6th at Club member Malcolm Kerr's place in Kent.

Once again food will be provided but if you want to bring an additional dish or dessert, please do.

One thing though - to help with the catering - if you intend to come along, please either email me, or telephone me at work or home. Knowing who's attending + party size (guests/partner) will help a great deal.



Remember, the AGM is the ideal opportunity to meet other club members, view the cars, or air your views etc etc.

Looking forward to hearing from you / speaking to you a week Sunday!

regards

Paul Thompson

Re: GTD40 Club AGM 2002

Today in the post I received a prize that it is intended to presented at the AGM. It is the No6 Gulf Scalectrix car as has been recently discussed on this forum. You can't win it if you are not there!

Malcolm

PS I would suggest it is a better model than a lot of the die cast ones!

Re: GTD40 Club AGM 2002

I have a Scalextric GT40, but it is the Mirage model. Probably quite a few years old, but partly spoilt by the fact that a previous owner must have repainted it. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

Hasn't raced for a while, but it used to whizz past my mates' heavier modern cars down the straights [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] , but didn't grip the corners as well as it doesn't have the rear magnet/weight of the modern cars [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]

Re: GTD40 Club AGM 2002

That's the one! If you have the 'race tuned' version, it has a special motor that'll have a blue casing. It has removeable brushes & needs a few laps to warm up before it'll go to maximum revs.

Once on full power it'll fly. infact it'll produce way more power than the ageing chassis will handle, hence the dodgy cornering, but with some fantastic wheelspins!! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Julian, you need to get your real car back on the road so you can pretend to be the plastic driver in a Scaletrix model! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Yes, & perhaps it'll handle like it's on rails.. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
