Hey everyone this sunday 4th of april there is a REAL car show down at southport and they are setting up an rc car track for 1/8th scale monster trucks and 1/8th scale buggys but there will probably be a few 1/5th buggys and other cars here and there.


I no im definatly going, hitchin a ride with Jono



I think itd be good to see a few AUSRC guys out there with their trucks racing around as it is a lot of fun showing off to all the people.





If wanting to go, be there by 9:30 at the latest and it is at the Parklands Showground at Southport.


Take a few crystal sets as well.





AUSRC, are you going to be going down to race the savage around?

it is the car show at southport, its held at the parklands showgrounds where big day out is


if your going, get there between 9:00 - 9:30 at the track its not hard to get to just follow the road around the outside of the complex and then go through the gate you will get in for free if you have your savage or whatnot truck with you


when you get in you have to see the lady / guy about your radio frequency and then they give you a sticker with a number on it, just put it on ur truck body and your all good to go.





any more details ?



if you wanna know anythin else, just post here and ill answer it for you

Lol man, dont worry about your servos they'll be fine


i think thats usually just a bit of interference by something it probably wont do that at the track as it wont be near where you live.


it could be something else though

jono.. lol tried to jump the fence.. and bent the back of his fins in..and later on in the day started his car without the reciever turned on..lol off he went chasing it.. and nick jus ttold me it has a hole in the crank



and me..lasted all day except right near the end.. i broke the diff casing.. and i broke the center gearbox shaft that my uni sits on






and everyone else that was there..done some sort of damage..





im sure nick and jono will add more..


dont sell your savy jono..u will regret it..lol..


will see u all at the next day..whenvever that comes.. and i think it could be next month?? well there planning on doing a day each month.


hopefull if theres a meet in june ill have a brand new rex-x buggy..they were so good to watch today...

Oh the enjoyment ofchasing and thensmacking MTs into Buggies...
So fun.


Yes i had gearbox carnage, in the rear its like a grenade went off two of the spider gears had moved a quater around the diff housing, bloody awful stuff. So i put the front diff into the back with the good pinion, now front is completely wrecked so i didnt attack any dogbones to the front, now i have to put on one more tire and get the engine in and test it out tomorrow i hope it works.


Ah yes, Jono and his destructive ways....


Well we throught we'd have some fun so we decided to jump the savage off the boom thingy, three or so meters of air and then land on the other side of the fence.... well heres how it went:

1st Time: Smacked Fence, Track Side
2nd Time: Cleared It, But Rolled
3rd Time: Cleared It, But Rolled
4th Time: Tried Backflip, Truck Stayed In A Vertical Stance, Smacked Engine Head On Fence And Bent 4 Fins...


Later on he found out he had a small hole in his crankcase and im pretty sure a smashed engine mount.


Ive never seen that bad damage from the two race days ive attended..






I strongly encourage anyone with enough guts and a good enough truck to attend these days down at southport at the parklands showgrounds its really fun.


For all the guys out there, they have MOTOCROSS and a BIKINI COMPETITION
