    I’ll bring my Ferrari 312 Policar.  Can we each run more than one car?

    Slot It Ferrari 312PB, Slot It Alfa T33, Sloter Lola T280 and the Fly Chevron B19/21.

    YES! Let’s do some testing and see what we think. I can imagine the technical nature of the rally track would make for multiple chassis to have a chance against each other – it is a different beast than setting up something on the fast course. Of course, because I own the slot.it Alfa 33/3, I have a vested interest, and I’m dying to run that car. 🙂

    If this rule change flies, then I claim the #34 Sebring 1971 Alfa 33/3. I plan on doing some testing in general this Turkey-day-week to make up for all the bid-ness travel I’ve had the last few weeks that has kept me away (either Mon or Wed since they may be rainy-ish…not sure which day yet – depending on King’s hours. If anyone else wants to try some stuff on the rally track, I’d be available.)

    I’m available either evening.  It takes two to open the rally track.  I have the 908 and 312.  It would be good to have one of the top drivers handy.

    I’m really open this week – having taken the whole week off. If there’s a good day this week for folks, I can’t imagine I wouldn’t be able to be part of the test. I am heading up to Kings today(Monday)  and will be there most, if not all, of the day.

    I also just grabbed the Ferrari 312BP off eBay on a lowball bid because it is so pretty (and it was my favorite AFX HO car as a kid, too). I got my Alfa the same way – not sure why these cars don’t go for full price. I ran the Alfa previously, only changing the rear tires to some used rubber and added the wood guide, and it was fantastic with no other tuning.

    Did the group actually vote on this change to the rules?  Was it officially approved?  I am looking forward to seeing some variety in this series.

    I had the same love for my AFX G-Plus Ferrari 312PB.  I still have one of mine and one I purchased on eBay.

    Not yet we thought we would wait to many missing the meeting. We can bring it up next race

    2019 RALLY UPDATE
    1. Just a reminder that this year the rally series is a Quarterly event – starting July 6.
    2. The theme is “Targa Florio” a mountainous Italian road race where many style of cars were used. Study up if you are not already familiar with this classic!
    3. The RULES will be updated soon – including the all important list of legal Car bodies, liveries, slot car manufacturer, model-#s. We apologize for the finalization of the Rules being so close to the first round 🙁

    ** So – in the coming weeks please acquire a car, build/tune it and practice!
    4. Just FYI – the leaderboard criteria are fairly simple- fastest time to complete 40 laps – over Five races determines Round rank and overall Series rank (as of May 10 – points will not be awarded for fast lap. If you wish to discuss bring up in a club meeting).
