with years of poor succession planning it has got to the stage where there is in effect no active board, and ASRA is now irrelevant!
People need to "get fairdinkum" and nominate, otherwise ASRA will die.
If the luge people want to have a crack, let em, because many of them are ex ASRA, and they are still making things happen.
The way to make sure you get the board you want is to encourage people, that you think would do a good job, to step up.....or nominate yourself!
As to the two weeks of the complaints I heard is that no one knew when or how to nominate, because it was not made clear in the meeting notice.
As to the luge bad-blood, it is time to forgive and forget, and let the new generation rebuild ASRA to what it was when we first ran at Bathurst.
Best wishes for 2015, and hope to see you at Canberra!

I have a friend with a machine shop.....Thing is ill probably have to pay him with a case or something like that. I'm also using cut-off or "waste" materials so the price is much lower. And all the hardware will be sourced locally (south coast fasteners). All of this results in a considerably lower price.

Hi Fitz

Woah thanks fitz, my first IDE was to test ceramics, biltins,standard reds and some cheap bearing, but Robbin said it would be better to test a whole company's range so I've gone with that idea. Thanks for the help I don't think you need to go all into it but that's for the idea I will definitely use that method!

Hi fitz, i am doing an experiment for science which will involve testing if the more expensive bearings provide less friction then the cheaper one. the reason im asking you is robbo said you did all kinds of things with bearings and he said you might have a suggestion of how i could do an accurate test? thanks

That's all good.  Though it might be the case!  Cheers anyway

I don't know whats been happening over at Randal but I cannot get hold of a 28* baseplate anywhere. They don't reply to my emails either and they have been out of stock since last year with no word of any coming in. Even Cindrich doesn't make low degree baseplates anymore - hoping they come out with their adjustable baseplate soon. 

Foam wedges sound great are they light? The rubber ones do weigh a bit and I'm thinking of getting the khiro wedging kit but not sure how much they weigh all up either. Though a single wedge would be thinner none the less - I am interested- how much and what degree?

Hey Fitz was wondering what your axle to axle wheel base is that you'd usually run. I've been wedging my back randal and its almost at its limit (unless you know where I can get > 3" bolts) - current wheelbase is 22". 95mm bennett front and 110mm randal back.
