  1. Terz, thanks for the interest in the videos. Keep an eye on our youtube channel as I have about 5 to upload from this year. Revival: Re-releases are fine. Period style mods are fine. No restrictions on electrics except the 2s LiPo limit. I've seen no evidence that brushless setups are better than brushed and vice versa. Emphasis is on having fun and raising money for charity. Revival 2016 raised £8,150.00 for Parkinson's UK. We're supporting Parkinson's UK next year as well. You'll find all the information you need on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/groups/iconicrc/ If you don't do facebook then we always suggest setting up an 'RC account' and use facebook just for RC. There is some great content on there. Otherwise, contact me at john@iconicrc.com as I'm not on the TC forum often. Cheers and hope to see you in 2017. The first event next year is a vintage buggy day in January at Dudley Model Car Club in memory of Brett Davis. We also have 4 Iconic Cup Rounds and the Buggython which are Tamiya events. Revival 2017 will be end of July. Plus some Iconic open track meets. John.
  2. Here are the Buggy entry stats for Revival 2016 this weekend. Proof that Vintage RC Racing is rather popular. If any TC members are in the area then why not pop along and spectate.
  3. A job very well done for round 1 of the Iconic Cup and a huge thanks to West London and to the entrants. £396 was raised in the raffle and that goes straight to Parkinson's UK. :thumbsup: There's an album of 365 photos uploaded to the IconicRC facebook group. Round 2 at Broxtowe is coming up and you can enter online here: http://www.broxtowemcc.co.uk/rapidcart/index.html Cheers. John
  4. I've given you a contact email via PM. Sorry for not replying sooner but any questions will get answered quicker via email on on facebook. Cheers. John
  5. Just in case any non-facebookers are going to the Broxtowe Iconic Meet tomorrow: Please don't forget your BRCA Card. No BRCA will mean no track time. We are expecting a large turnout so please be mindful when choosing what to run; especially on the on-road track. SCT's and F1's don't mix very well! Cheers. J.
  6. Excellent. Very well played by the Dougmeister. Great format!
  7. Excellent. I'll get your Fox entry changed to a Frog for now. In that awesome earliest class we have the following entries and I would say the Kyosho's are probably the trophy contenders with the Frog being the best choice Tamiya. Tamiya Frog Kyosho Scorpion Tamiya Sand Scorcher Kyosho Scorpion Tamiya Fighting Buggy Tamiya Buggy Champ Kyosho Tomahawk Tamiya Subaru Brat Kyosho Beetle Tamiya Frog Tamiya XR311 Kyosho Beetle Tamiya Ford Ranger Tamiya Frog Tamiya Frog Tamiya Frog Kyosho Eleck Peanuts Tamiya Frog Kyosho Tomahawk Rere's and Brushless are permitted. Hornet is in the later class though which is already full and closed.
  8. Revival 2016: Just a couple of days into the online entry opening, we are full in a few classes and there aren't many spaces left in other classes. On 2WD Saturday we've already had 118 Buggy entries from 90 entrants and the only class still open is 78-83. On 4WD Sunday we are close to closing the 3 Buggy classes so be quick if you were considering entering. We didn't expect the event to fill up in days but it's clearly become pretty popular. I think most interested TC'ers are on Iconic anyway but if not, you now know to act quickly if you want to enter the Revival. John.
  9. Revival 2016: Online Entry with immediate PayPal Payment is now open. A reminder that entry fee proceeds go to Parkinson's UK. http://revival.a1racingclub.com/calendar.html
  10. Thanks Dave. That's great to hear and I appreciate the post. We do have some Australians on Iconic who race vintage for fun. I can't think of the track. It's dirt though and I think in Perth?
