Hi fello sandgroper.... ye im in perth and would love to get to meet others in the rc hobby,, currently have a venom stadium truck(((pic in members rides)) and a new tamiya tgs,DTM mercedes road car.. WORKING MY WAY UP TO A MONSTER!!!.
good to see some interest still waiting to get my truck online waiting on new tyres once im up a running and looking like ive got some reliability (or learn to stop killing it ) ill give you a call and see if we can organise something.
thanks for you r response thats a fair collection of cars youve got . are you north or south of the river?
so where do you boys go bashing I love taking on bmx tracks stevo Im guessing you g0o to whiteman park . Sam from rc models is supposed to be organising a meet there some time for monsters heres hoping hoping my tyres wil be here tommorrow what aboutyou jiggen gonna find some time? forgot what your driving not that it matters just wanna have fun bashing with others talk to me
I'm up in the hills, up in Darlington(just up the hill from Midland).
Igo bashing mostly at BMX tracks with Juls from RMS.
Whitemans is good and all, but its not a real bashunless your launching atleast3 meters high or 10meters far... although we did put a ramp on the drivers stand and jump off that down about 4meters off the groundusing that bog/hole/creek/ Thing as a down ramp... that was fun for the first few time
Ye im actually in ellenbrook(2 mins from whiteman park) .
Havnt actually been there as i thought you had to be a member of the aero club or buggy clubto gain access...there is a bmx track in my street HOWEVER lots of concrete so ittl take a fair old beating if you dont land it perfect..
Im havin a few probs with the stadium truck at the moment, think this venom i purchaced is turning out to be a bit of a lemon....
Ran it in with a lot of care,and gave it its first real caining last week...
It locked up big time!!! turned out the front drive sharfs have to much play and 1 droped from within the wheel and wedged itself on something...
Fixed that during the week with a few springs...
Now took it out this morning,the bitch(sorry) lasted all of 5 minutes and the manifold has came loose and dropped a bolt, wouldnt keep its high end power and sounded like a tank!!!
So its back to the shop with it again...
Think ill end up selling the 2 i have and getting something decent (offroad)
The tamiya i have amg dtm rtr.... has only had 1 tank of juice and fed up allready.. once youve been offroad, road cars just dont hold the same appeal !!!
whitemans park is awesome..i love it there...ive only been to perth once cos my step dads family lives ova there...there really nice...and the beaches ova ur way aww my gawd...leaves the goldy for dead...scarborough is really nice...ummm what was the name of that jetty....umm itsa aboath harbour thing and it caught fire last year or something...gawd i gotta come ova again soem time soon

hsv93 do you know if there racing trucks at whitman park and can you rock up any time and have a go on the track?are you cars running or in some state of repair?im waiting on some new pinions and crowns and ill be going again.
Whitemans now has a savage class, there is about 3 out there on race day.
You can usually just walk in and have a play on non-race days. because the compound is shared by the aeroplane club, and there is usually always someone at the aeroplane club, so the gate is usually open.
They have just spent a fair bit on the track, and resurfaced it, it needs a little time before its perfect, still a little ruff, but getting there. and they have installed a raised pit lane, and more undercover area, so its coming good.
i'm cool my parents own 5 acres out at wanneroo its all just bush with a big shed i'm planning to build a rc track there it should be good .i'm getting a mt soon and so is my bro so i will just bash out there and my friend can use the stadium truck
oh crap i shouldn't have said that coz now all of u's will be like(can i go there and bash)lolEdited by: mini-t
