Revoslot Proxy UK
#1

I notice there's a few here entering cars in the stateside Revo Proxy
...is there enough interest this side of the pond to graft a Revo event into one of Graham's proxies?

Life is like a box of Slot cars... Cool Drinkingcheers

It is an interesting idea I not thought about myself, but is there enough people running them in the UK …….umm.

Idea But if so, and if I was to organise it myself it would have to fit my preferred proxy structure as I tend to do these proxy themes only once, so it would be probably be along the lines of 3 Events of the different Revoslot types. (Saloon, GT1 and GT2 cars). And as a stand alone Revoslot proxy, rather then part of a mixed proxy.

Certainly worth putting to a vote next year as an option for the Autumn 25 proxy.

I don't have one, but if there was a racing reason to get one, I'd be in.

I love puttering with gears

Gr.2 or GT2 I'd be in.

As numbers may be too low for a Revo specific 3 class proxy I was thinking more along the lines of one of the 3 (or 4) events in one of your proxies Graham and one of Gr.2 or GT1 or GT2 class Revos with tuned standard cars using any available Revo parts only (including tyres which are super tyres anyway) and maybe allowing lightweight interiors and free choice of pinion.

Of course the by-product of this is a chance for those who want to enter the Revo proxy series over the big pond to prep a car for two different events.

We have a Club Revoslot GT2 race a few times on our race calendar, they are out of the box cars with nothing added or taken away - glued & trued tyres and they go really well.  The tyres are 3 years old and still have another couple of years in them yet.

     Look great runs slow 

2 of my 3 Revoslots would be eligible for box stock blueprinted racing. However, based on my results in Revoslot proxies do not wager on my entries.  Track selection would be key as I believe the regular guide is deep for over the pond racing.  If I’m wrong great!! I’m in with a Ferrari 333SP #33 in red with a silver spoiler.

I am quite liking the idea, a one brand proxy is not something I contemplated before. But because Revoslot have the range of 3 different car types it does appeal to me.
I think because of the cost of them, probably a fairly standard set up set of rules apart from choice of tyres might be best to attract newcomers into it.

I had it mind to offer a couple of alternative themes for the Autumn proxy next year, so Revoslot could be one of them.

My gut feeling is a one brand proxy wouldn't get the same amount of interest from your proxy regulars, a poll would be interesting.

I believe there are more Revoslots running around than we know. Plus guys will pick up the car to compete given the potential time frame.   The key will be to limit the entries for each class or there will be 30 Group2 510 Datsuns.

although i like Graham's multi event / class proxies . and love hosting 
these cars are quite different from the norm and are relatively expensive and unless entrants already have one . purchasing more or multiple cars for what could be a one off might be a little off putting 
i think if a UK Revo proxy was decided upon 
then i feel a single class format would attract more entries in this case 
just my thoughts 

but as Kevan says . a vote is perhaps the way to go 
but lets not forget . unless someone else wants to take up the torch . vote or not .  these are Graham's baby
