Had the pleasure of going to "Mustang Alley" for some Thursday night racing. Autoworld track, 1000ft timed section and slot dragon timing gear. I returned the Kiwi Challenge cars to their owners and after a discussion about how the Challenge racing went qualifying began. Ham1200 and I managed to spoil the party by taking out a couple of finals. We had no answer for the other classes! A great night racing and big thanks to Paul for hosting.
We run very similar times to whats run at the NTRA events. At 18 volts and 1000ft our 4 gears run low 1 second passes. And a few cars dip below 1 second. We use mostly NTRA rules across the classes we run. We currently have 2 1000ft tracks and 2 scale 1/4 mile track we race on.
Nice track set up. You are lucky to have the different tracks close for some local racing! I am starved for some of that. Ford emblems....Mustang pics.....US flag.....I think I would fit right in there. I see everybody has their coats on. I forget it is the opposite season there now....winter. Thank you for posting and please keep it up.

Its always a pleasure to have Kiwi Dave and Ham1200 at our tracks so we can kick their butts. Just joking, a great way for us men to have a quiet night in the garage and drink a few ales. Tho must say the racing is getting more competitive as time goes by. Cant wait for our NZHO winter nats to start.
So for Mustang Paul, or otherwise known as pony boy here are 2 pics from last nights racing, was dam cold so the heater was out. All the USA cars were in attendance and were not quite up to pace, but were getting faster as the night went on.
Matt the Crump talking to Ron the train guy.
I think Alan the lawn mower man was trying to tell me something, I have no idea what it was.
Sandfly cam away with wins in T Jet and Inline. Sadly my attempt at cutting down on drinking seems to have vanished. Was a great night.
