what: speedyshaun vs 575racer head to head for 8mins.

when:14th september, as soon as the tracks are put down.

how: 20 mins closed track sesion for practise, straight into an 8min head to head. driver with the most laps wins. driver with the least loses. simple.
we will deffinately need the track with the timer for the main race.

any more q's, ask kryten whos race official :)

This should be great entertainment,and hopefully quite close as both of you are close in the HFAY standings.Now all we need is the OK from Bri to use the core track while everyone's still dithering after track setup:D(you know,when i'm usually doing the first round of nice,hot burgers mmmmmm)

Play nice guys... ;)

I've found that duels with Zs never last the fully agreed amount of time... our guys used to duel once in a while, but usually if someone gets a few laps down they concede right away. My guess is that everybody's watching, and it's too much added pressure.

My take on it is... if the loser is getting spanked terribly, but still sticks it out the entire race... he's a good racer, and that's all that really matters!

Good luck to both! :D

Be more interesting if you were racing for pink's. Please post video here for all of us to enjoy!

kryten
2008.09.08, 10:39 AM
It'd certainly be more exciting! if a bit pricey for the loser.
I think bragging rights is prize enough;)

marc
2008.09.08, 11:00 AM
Yea, racing for pink's ain't cheap! At least from the loser's point of view. Maybe should at least race for parts.

575racer
2008.09.08, 12:14 PM
hmm pinks might be abit far, especialy as one of us would go without their hfay car:(

Race for tires, or rims? Loser does the dishes?:D

kryten
2008.09.09, 04:39 AM
Maybe the loser buys the winner a pair of tyres of their choice?
Or maybe the loser can have my cooking duties for the day?:cool:

Programmers

I say the loser wears lipstick for the day or something, haha!

Suppose I need to do something similar then, ok, too late for september, so open challenge to anyone in F1, at the October meet.

Programmers
2008.09.11, 04:50 AM
I think it should be you VS Bri at F1! ;)

Neomax
2008.09.11, 08:34 AM
This could be quite an entertaining event!
Though if i were you Shaun, i'd use a car the same spec as Liam's, because if you win he'll just say you had a faster car...lol

Programmers
2008.09.11, 08:51 AM
I second that, lol.

Will this be broadcasted live? :) I'd like to watch it... Also, what's the hobby shop's name? I would like to donate a pack of whatever tires you guys run there. Just let me know the name of the shop and the tires (set front and back) you guys run there and I'll sent it over. It'll go to the winner ofcourse.

edit:
better yet. I'll send it through paypal and get it from your shop.

Good luck!

I think it should be you VS Bri at F1! ;)

I'm not sure that would be fair. I've allready upset Bri by beating his time in his F1, then beating him head to head when he had his better F1 :D think the only person I didn't beat last time on the big track when everone raced was Malc, but anyone who feels up to the challenge :cool:

Programmers
2008.09.12, 01:22 AM
As you can't remember me beating you, I'd take the challenge! :p

As for the for this it's on stuff. As it seems to be getting quite serious now, I better bring my video camera, haha! Oh the pressure!

Neomax
2008.09.12, 04:03 AM
I'll bring my mini helicopter just to fly around like the ones with camera's on in real life, only mine won't have a camera on it, it'll just be annoying and distracting!....lmao
I'll bring my tripod and another video camera! I have another spare tripod if you need it Tom?

Programmers
2008.09.12, 05:19 AM
Why not?! :D

marc
2008.09.12, 10:19 AM
Oh come on NEO! I've been long wanting to bring my co-axial helicopter to the local race and video tape it from the sky! You should do that, it would be a sweet vid! Maybe have a tennis ball hang from the helicopter and try to knock out the racers? :D

Oh i'd love to, but sadly its not big enough of strong enough to lift a camera, i even have one of the little wireless ones, but its only the Alanys Micro Mosquito, so its only 'ickle!

bet it ent as small as my heli mal, mines like a picco-z thats been on a diet:eek:
anyways i hope shauns ready, ive swapped to 2.4 board out the mazda into the 'stang so i should be running faster now:D

Neomax
2008.09.13, 01:23 PM
So is the 2.4 running ok?

Oh by the way Tom, i fixed yer Monster and fitted the blue gearbox for ya, it was the servo had jammed. Some of the screws to fit it all back together were missing so i knicked a few from the other gearbox, now there is only 1 screw missing!
(sorry for high-jacking the thread! ;) )

2008.09.13, 01:53 PM

575racer
2008.09.15, 11:11 AM

Lol, yeah. It needed to be more obvious!

Congrats! Sounds like fun! Can't wait for the vid. ;)
I'm not sure there will be one. Watching the footage back, it's not very entertaining. It was on the day, obviously. I'll try editing it a bit more to get something from it but don't get your hopes up!
