  1. Today
  2. Will have a white kit and do one of the Aussie versions. Maybe not the Bathurst winning car as I am sure that will be on the Slot.it list.
  3. Great night of racing lads. Thanks to one and all! Keep up the good work Marty.
  4. Yep great racing for sure I am normally not that much of a fan of the faster classes but that GRP5 was most certainly fast & furious with lots of hardcore battles just the way I like it I'd much rather fight and earn a spot on the podium than getting it by cleaning up
  5. Thanks for coming guys. It was good to finally get back on the track and run some cars. There was some great driving and not just the same old faces taking the podiums. Just how it should be. I reckon Group 5 was the fastest overall racing we have ever seen on a club night. Everyone was quick but Pat, Crockett, JK, and That Guy were absolutely flying. Dice of the night surely goes to Pat and Dave for their door to door laps in Group 5. Brilliant.
  6. Looking at the pics I should explain the idea around my decision to put in a pivot, I was thinking that a little bit of flex would be desirable, although some would argue that these little cars don't respond to that I still wanted to see for myself with this build, The pivot arms can vary in diameter and for this build I used 1.2mm thick piano wire, in hindsight I maybe could have gone down to 1mm diameter, I don't get too much movement in this chassis, certainly not as much as I was hoping for, although the car does run quite nice. For an alternative feel I am in the midst of another build and in this build I will go for a 1mm torsion bar set up.
  7. No problems IM Its a bit mucky, maybe I should have given it a bath before I took the pics!
  8. Yesterday
  9. Nice. Can we see her with her clothes off?
  10. My judgement is obviously better than you imply as I didn't use them for that very reason.
  11. Looks better than the first pics Waiting for the Calsonic one myself but I may be tempted to get that one as well now
  12. If you check back through the thread you would notice there was a lot of chat about tyres and Alexis make in particulat always good to have a control tyre but in the case of that particular tyre think the feeling was it needed a bit more work, for a good urethane tyre a PG, Bosa, MJK and the Yellowdog work well Bov but with the PG and the Yellowdog both need some trimming width wise to get them regulation size

    Waiting on a Pit Building from Magnetic Racing before I progress on the pits... they're open air, think... Townsville... balmy
  14. Been a long time since we had any front page news update, so here is something slightly drool-worthy. A new model, and in a rather pretty livery. These are due sometime in November from them up in Reggio Emelia. It may not rival the local Lambrusco and Parmigiano Reggiano - what does unless it is the real aged Balsamic from down the road in Modena, but pretty nice anyway. I didn't even mention the bolognese sauce, parma ham, grana padano, provolone, pecorino...... oh sorry, slot cars.... It's a Datsun, a GT-R BRN32 Datsun - to be precise This particular livery was the winner of the Macau Guia Touring Car race 1990. It is fitted with the same drive train as the DTM Touring cars, and is designed to compete against them on the slot track. Hopefully Slot.it will eventually release the BMW M3 of the era, which model competed in both DTM and at Macau 1989 to 1992 and other Asian Touring car rounds. From 1991 the Mercedes 190e already released by Slot.it competed in the same Asian race series. …. I hope we can all see where this might be leading. [No I don’t know anything, just hoping] Two more liveries of this model were announced at Nuremburg, roll on the Nissans Chassis: Podded Motor: Slot.it V12/4 21,000rpm 150g*cm 7.9 watts @12V (MX15) mounted as Inline Axle & Gears - 2.38mm (3/32nd) Gearing: Crown 28t - Pinion 9t brass Has adjustable height front axle - this requires optional M2.0 Hex screws not supplied with car Hubs: 15.8mm x 8.3mm - plastic front, alloy rear Tyres front and rear: Product code PT1228C1 M2 allen key under box for rear hubs and for optional screw for front axle adjustment SSD Upgradable: Yes, use Slot.it chip SP15b Meanwhile my diet is ruined, off to the refrigerator.
  15. Yet this is round 2 - I guess your judgement is as bad as mine..... thanks for your very helpful contribution though...
  16. Wow just saw this thread - Fantastic job Mike!
  17. Try Pattos place http://members.optushome.com.au/pattosplace/home.html go to --> Decals --> F then search "bartlett" using you browser search function. should look like this or this depending on the livery you are after He does 1:64 for you and will cost $14 +PP
  18. Hi there everyone just hoping someone could help i model 1/64 scale diecast cars and im looking for 1974 goss/bartlett set of decals even if its 1/24 scale set and i could pay someone to resize it to 1/64 scale and print it for me i would be very gratefull cheers, hope to hear from someone.

    Better get the roof on that pit garage, it's going to rain later in the week Looking good there, I like the way you have curved flow, not just straights up the back

    Some pics of more progress: Pit Lane line marking Added some fencing... Planning marshall points Working on improving my trees... these were quickly added to get some atmosphere. Pit Wall ready for signage.
  22. Last week
  23. I'm not, it was blindingly obvious they were too soft during testing, very grippy but I estimated 4 rounds and the cars would be rubbing the chassis...that's why the tyre rule was changed beforehand.
