Iconic Meets

Recommended Posts

It was a cold cold day yesterday, at one point I couldn't feel my hands but wouldn't stop driving :lol: learning to drive with gloves on was a challenge :D

It didn't stop there being a good turn out, plenty of cars and lots of drivers. I managed to get some track time with my vintage cars and tested my new 120amp Toro esc's which are good for the money. My TRF cars got some good runs in too B)

Ballistic Buggy green's were the tire of the day as with temperature being so low the track never really dried out properly. Glad I bought full sets for my cars.

Looks like a good turn out boys....

And there was a lot of DT02 on the track, some guys getting some practice in I think ;);)

Thanks for reply John.

Ive noticed there is more than 6 cars on the track at once. Does this mean that everybody uses/has to have 2.4ghz radio gear?

GHz is definitely recommended. We do have some staunch MHz regulars and they just need to be very aware of who else is running.

GHz for a trouble free day.

I decided against music as some have had issues watching and youtude always throws a wobbler what ever music i choose, so make sure you put something vintage on before watching lol.

More sponsors thumbup.gif

Another Revival Sponsor on-board. Airborne Unlimited have agreed to shoot the Revival free of charge and provide Iconic and A1 with the footage. They are a seriously slick outfit who've shot material all over. Particularly impressive was the Monaco Yacht shoot.http://www.airborneunlimited.co.uk/

We welcome another Revival sponsor. Signs and Grapics UK sticker up 1:1 cars and have a huge reputation in the industry. Just check out their motorsport work! They have very kindly offered to kit us out with RC stickers for the event. grin emoticon http://signsuk.co.uk/

M's custom Tees & Hoodies have kindly donated 10 t-shirts to the Revival Charity Fundraising. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ms-custom-Tees-Hoodies/1388618084772934

We've extended the April Snetterton meet to a weekender. We've also added another Snetterton weekender in June. See my edited post above.

Onsite camping available.

Lots of beers in Thetford planned for the Saturday night.

So thats 1, or sometimes 2 meetings a month now, fantastic Mr JWeston! Gone are the days (only a few years ago), where there was nothing rc to do!! Good to see so many fellow TC members at these meets now too.

Loads of classes to choose from, all I need to do now is get the car(s) ready. I wonder what I'll have ready in time! LOL Certainly gonna fly the Tamiya flag where possible.

I really need to get you guys to stay in Wymondham overnight - a much nicer place to be than Thetford!!

Good work for organising another weekender - shame I can't make the one in April, I'm too busy and it's the wrong side of the holiday calendar cutoff for me.

I'm planning on making the 29th March event at A1, there's a campsite just around the corner or I might even be tempted to risk an overnight stay at Grantham services :)

Both my boys want to race but I would like them to start of in a friendly relaxed way before they decide if they want to get into club racing. They both have 1/10th electric (a Hobao Hyper H2 Pro and a Maverick Strada MT Evo) it looks like both will be able to come down and run these for the day (I'll take my Neo Scorcher as a backup car and run my Re-re's) at West London in May. It certainly looks like a good format and fun from the Video's (must get a lexan body for my Lunchie for the Wheelie race).

Those buggies will be great around the West London track. Keep an eye on tyre wear though as it's a Tarmac track. A nice relaxed open track format so your boys should be able to get a feel for it with no pressure on.

Just to mention that the team at NDOR are going to soften down the track to suit 1:10 electric for us so don't be too fearful of the jumps if you look at their website. They've promised to give us a suitable layout.
