Hey Justin, What sort of CAMS License do they require you to have?

How tough is scruitineering on the buggys?

Hi Rat, I got a Speed license -$105 as far as scrutineering goes they are very casual. They walked around my buggy,scratched their heads and said what are we supposed to check on this :roll: They asked if it had a brake light,got me to show them it worked and that was it. Trust me there is a few pieces of crap running around out there. They ask that people arrive around 7:30 am to get the paperwork and money out of the way,so if you wanted to travel to my place Saturday arvo and stay the night it would make for a less rushed morning on Sunday.Just a thought anyway,or alternatively if you wanted to make a weekend of it, we could spend Saturday at my parents farm having a play.They only live about 15 min away from the track :)

Millmerran looks to be the next closest thing to a race meeting kicking off in June so let us know when your available - Cheers Rusty (Knuckles) !!
I am a healthy PETRO - SEXUAL male !!! Sleeping in my buggy is OK - isn't it??

Hi Lads
Had a run at Nabiac NSW near Forster. Great track with a few good straights but lots of hairpin turns so the rally cars with diffs and hydraulic hand brakes left me behind. The track is very slippery sand based and narrowed in places due to all the wet weather so i couldn't use it all and it was a five second penalty for hitting a cone. Get it pointed in the right direction and get on it was what i tried . Nice people, great venue with all facilities including camping on site. Heres a bit of vid from my rear cam. Unfortunately as usual my old go pro facing forward let me down but i did get some front vid so i will put something together.

Hi Rat

Yeah mate it was good to strech its legs but i must admit i was looking for some more HP on the straights. Had some problems in the early runs upshifting due to a bit of play in the cable. Got it sorted and my times were coming down. The locals sure have their cars sorted for this track. They run a lot of different events all year. All good fun !
Mike :)

hi all just brought plans to build a piranha buggy and was reading through the forum,
i have a few questions about these neetings if i understand it the club nolonger runs events anymore but runs at stuff like the proston rally etc is this true?
secondly what changes to the plans do i need to do if any to run these events and lastly will the club be running events again as i live in warwick qld and the millmerian sprints are close by so that looks like the only real option for me unless i can convince my sister in-law to let me build a track on her 100 acres.

Hi Brooksie.

Great to see you get in and build. with the buggies, if i was in your position, try and build a cuda instead of the piranha. I think the advantages of a cuda are obvious over a piranha so no need to go into detail as to why. As far as cams ruling goes at the events we attend, Proston never had any issues with the piranha's but I cant speak for Milmerran. Justin is the only one who has had a run out there before they shutdown for xmas. We plan to run there in 2012 but we dont know how strict their CAMS ruling is as far as EDGE buggies go. If you are going to build a piranha, may i strongly suggest that you use 38mm CDS pipe as a minimum, run nothing but a PIRCV for the rear driveline for reliabillity reasons and extend the cabin by 150mm and put 100 in the engine bay area. May i also suggest doing Russell's A-A arm front arms as well. Do all this, and you wont have a problem with cams and will also be extremely competetive. :D

Hey Brooksie,

Great to see someone else interested in Edge Buggies in SEQ.. Mate our club is very alive & kicking, with some great racing planned for 2012..... It's more mates racing focused now, than big organised club meets..... but there are are several hard core guys, who've been round these buggies for years, built numerous edge buggies, from Pirahanas to Cudas & love it......

If your 'round SEQ, mate give me a call & lets hook up for a Beer & a BBQ, I'll get a few of the SEQMBC Boys to come around & we'll talk your ears off on buggies. M: 0412 047 391

Just moved up from Sydney to the gold coast about 3 months ago. Got a Cuda all finished down in NSW at my old mans farm. Not sure if its worth bringing it up or not... would be awesome fun to race. As far as i go, i have no cams anything, and the buggy is more or less built to edge plans. Guessing ill need to get a few things sorted, but as long as its not making the buggy pass cams i think ill be fine. Wont be able to bring it up for 6 months or so but thats details.

I saw the list of events at the start, thought i might drop by and check everything out. Whats the best one to attend.

Cheers,
Hamo
It would have been extremely dangerous... except for the fact he was drinking at the same time.
