  1. Today
  2. Latest tracking on mine shows: Your item was processed through a facility in AUSTRALIA on August 3, 2020 at 3:08 pm. The item is currently in transit to the destination. It should be there soon
  3. Well it doesn't matter what the colour is, does it
  4. i cannot find my tracking paper from the post office, it should have arrived a week ago... grrrr
  5. Looks like we have a Clio race within the race
  6. That has turned out fantastic Jimmy. I hope it is as fast as it looks. Almost looks Indycar-ish in those colours with those wheels. I did a Gulf livery one, but dropped it doing the clear coat - doh! Will post pics anyway when I get a chance
  7. Sometimes it's good just to take a break, "a change is as good as a holiday" :-)
  8. Yesterday
  9. Looks great, was a white kit I take it?. I borrowed another racers and used one of these the other week. Might have to get myself one now that a few of the clubs I race at are using them.
  10. Lovely looking track there Jimmy, excellent.
  11. I'm waiting for 2 cars to be delivered - curef99's and reek455's. When they're here we can start racing. In the meantime I'll do a preliminary run of all the cars on my test track this weekend and post a video of each car doing a few laps with comments and lap times. The times will be used to sort the starting order for the first race and I'm sure you all want to know if you've built a winner or a dud. It's only a small figure 8 track and a good lap time is in the 2.3's. So far all the cars received have got into the 2.3's or better with a few in the 2.1's. Who's that fast? You'll just have to wait and see. Cheers Paul
  12. that looks good Jimmy Nice work
  13. Track all running well with some grip making life a bit easier but I still like 10 volts & is tight enough to get your attention,12 volt might be too scarey. Computer hook up soon & then she's done jpeg upload \ Cheers Jimmy
  14. Finally got around to posting some pics of my NSR F1,coulden't wait for the factory Marlboro livery so got some of Patto;s peel & stick decals & painted my own. images to upload Car is sensational & is very close to set up straight out of the box,just needed a few tweaks. Cheers Jimmy
  15. Hi John Must be something in the air I have been feeling the same way. We only race fortnightly, occasionally on in between weeks I head over to a mates track for a test and tune session and frankly I would prefer to do that over racing any day. Not sure what it is but I agree with you racing requires energy and a different kind of energy. You have to deal with other people who may have different motivations than you which I don't get on a test and tune day. I am enjoying resin casting as well. My next project will be to build a small pressure pot. Getting too many mishits with my casting of small parts so hoping a pot will fix that plus I want to start casting some clear parts as well. cheers David
  16. I probably should have mentioned in the opening post that I am colour blind On that chart PMS 279 and 285 look close to me.
  17. Hi John Going through the same life thoughts myself at the moment & struggling to get my race face on.I've been full on racing for 27 years mainly 1/24th Plafit & Vintage scale & more recently Slotworx at the Bullring Shellcove & before that X-Treme Dapto & Hornsby where I have many great memories & thought nothing of driving 2 1/2 hours to race on a Friday night getting back home at 1 am & getting up at 5am to work in the old days Basically lost interest in national & enduro type racing,not a good traveller & love my own bed too much. Just finished my new track & can't be bothered to set up the computer which is a simple process as it's left over from my old track & should only take a couple of hours to hook up. Not sure if my lack of interest is Covid,old age or just had enough,still enjoy building & still doing some Proxies but the big crunch will come if I ever start to sell off some of my better cars,that time hasen't arrived yet but is on my mind. Any progress with the VK mould yet John,I think I've got just enough energy to put a good scratch build chassis under it. Cheers Jimmy
  18. After a decade or so the urge to race on a weekly basis has lost its attraction for me. I am still heavily into slotcars (scratchbuilding and resin casting and proxy builds) but I will shelve any race schedules/cars/plans etc for a while. The energy I have is being used up elsewhere during the day. As Gascarnut said, "Scratchbuilding is life and life is scratchbuilding" See you at the DTM for a slotdog and shullbit sharing.
  19. You now have two less Mark Chris I will shamelessly follow your lead thank you. Cheers for all the help everyone.
  20. Ah ha, now I'm with you. And I agree, that it can be disruptive to your lap / race rhythm
  21. Still haven't seen your car. ALS's Renault Clio was delivered yesterday, looks beautiful in black.
