  • GT3 Proxy Cars Where To Send!

    All here is my address. Please also include the following on a piece of paper for the tech sheet. November 6th, 2020 is the due date.

    You can send by courier if you like. For Postal system shipping I find priority shipping USPS / Canada Post has been much quicker than regular parcel shipping. Regular parcel shipping can take upwards to a month and longer in some circumstances for reasons out of our control.

    Robert Malesan
    2252 Quail Run Dr
    Kelowna, BC
    V1V 2S3

    phone number for the customs form:

    Tech info to send;
    Car body / manufacturer
    Motor & Speed
    Pinion Tooth Count
    Crown / Spur Gear count
    Front Tires
    Rear Tires

      Cars were put on the slow boat to north america from the most isolated land mass in the world...hope the little driver isn't too sea sick and gets his land legs back under him before they arrive in your wine country.
      We hope that the pacific islanders will do well. I am worried that friend of yours out in western canada does not put in another 5,000 laps of practice. Hmm actually two of them Mr Superslab and that guy F1 Fan.
      Good luck to all as we start holding our breath on how the 2020-2021 edition goes.
      As always most of us will be proud and honored to make the field

        Dale , I am greatly flattered that you would mention my efforts in the same sentence as Chris’s, but we all know he is in a different league to my amateur efforts. So I am happy to confirm that you need not be greatly concerned by my fumblings. But I do hope to be able to rise to a level where we can resume some of the battles we have had in the past: always a great pleasure. Very best of luck to you!

      I'm sure if F1Fan puts any more laps on that car he will need new tires! I also worry about his controller handle, I bet cracks are starting to develop!

      Great you mailed your car!

        Mine is in the mail as well. Decided to go with the green C6R with the 19.5k motor and a new set of boots.

        I remember, not long ago, (like, maybe months?) being able to ship a slot car priority mail just about anywhere in North America for $6.75 US. My local post office wanted $40 and change to ship to Kelowna! Holy schneikies!

        So, I decided instead to ship by first class mail. My car will be sent by courier pigeon on an indirect route across the United States, Canada, and possibly Mexico, but with luck it should arrive safe and sound in Kelowna before the due date.

          Steve, I just logged on to USPS click and ship. Wow $40 Priority and $20 First Class. I better get the lead out and ship it this weekend. Glad my parts arrived yesterday.

        Darn, it looks like I missed my best opportunity to do well in this proxy! I just thought that if I could have hired a hacker to get me into Rob’s HRW account, by directing people to send their cars to an address in Tuktoyaktuk or somewhere similarly distant I could have eliminated a lot of the opposition. I almost typed “better opposition” but in my case that would have been redundant....

        Note to self: remember this strategy for next year.

          Tuktoyaktuk sounds like someplace where things go but never come back.

          Note to self: Don't fall for Alwyn's Tuktoyaktuk strategy next year.

          Uh oh. “ Tires – Only BLACK RUBBER tyres are allowed on the powered rear wheels with a minimum OD of 19mm at the start of the series. Minimum front tire diameter will be 17mm; minimum width of 7mm. ”

          Did you check the OD on your rears. If they’re under 19 mm there may still be time to send another set of rear wheels/tires.

          Hope this comment is not needed.

            That concerns me as it is probably 3999+ laps that you did not need ... if i may speak for most of the group that makes "us" very nervous.

            Dale I appreciate your blind confidence in my abilities, but it takes a lot of work to ensure I built a car that's not too fast so as to win the series and upset our new & fragile race director, but fast enough to still come 2nd! LOL

          My #44 Huracan left this morning, I hope it reaches you in time.

                  Austin & Audi1’s cars on the way that is great.
                  Tracks closed around Austin’s area...not good and not uncommon. I know Covid cases are going up here, last two days record numbers. Everyone be careful and diligent out there.
