    DT02 challange event

    Steve, there were other entrants suffering from interference issues yesterday (Rich, Liam, The Doc). No one could pin point why but someone did mention it's a good idea not to have Mobile Phones on the rostrum. One chap had issues in just one corner of the track. Another on another section of the track. It was strange. I've not had this at the Revival and most run GHz at that event to. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know it wasn't just you. What a fantastic day and well run event. I'll get the Race Report submitted to Racer Magazine asap and will post on here when it's available. I'll upload all of the photos onto Iconic tonight. Well done Lee, Simon and SHRCCC.

    Iconic Meets

    Simon, A lot of the TC old boys are on Iconic and come to the meets so you'd be in familiar company. BRCA does run from Dec to Dec though so if you pay £17 now you'll only benefit from a couple of meets. A reminder that RC Model Shop Direct and Snetterton Park meets do not require BRCA as both places have their own insurance. It would be great to see you along to the meets. Drop me an email if you like and I can give you some more info. Our meets are by no means restricted to Iconic Members and the clubs take all of the fees for the day, which are a total bargain! John

    Iconic Meets

    Revival 2015 raised a grand total of £5,500.00 for Pancreatic Cancer UK. We are very grateful to the support of our Iconic RC members and the many sponsors who came on board to support this event and help us to such a fantastic total. Across the weekend we had a total of 100 entrants and 268 vintage entries. There are hundreds of photos already on our facebook group from our members and I'm drip feeding the official albums on to there as well. Photos can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/iconicrc/photos/ John.

    Iconic Meets

    A Revival 2015 update. (A reminder that Tamiya Club merged the thread for this charity event into the Iconic meets thread) We've raised £912 so far with some great online raffles for some excellent prizes. With the main event to come in 3 week's time, entry fees will go on top of that £912 and then we have the raffles and tombolas during Revival weekend. We should get to a fantastic total. We have 78 entrants on 2WD Saturday with 136 entries and we have 73 entrants on 4WD Sunday with 122 entries. It's going to be an epic weekend of vintage RC racing.

    The video of last Saturday's Iconic Meet at RC Model Shop Direct. Snetterton tomorrow
  12. Hi all. Tamiya Fluorescent Polycarbonate Spray Paint Flakes off. It's happened to me, it's happened to pals and it's mentioned on other RC forums. Has anyone experienced this and then discovered how to prevent the flaking? Just to emphasize that I know about the proper preparation of the body before spraying etc. This is just with regard to the Tamiya PS Fluorescent colours, which blatantly fall off, and I'm looking for tips from members that have experienced this and remedied it. Thanks in advance. J

    Buggy is a Schumacher CAT 2000 EC and the chap was tested it for the Revival. (I think he might be a trophy contender!) Le Mans Porsche is a Tamiya 58230. I don't think either of them are TC members. Cheers :-)
