yes Slot.it signalled nearly 18 months ago that they would no longer be identifying their various motors by end bell colour.
- my guess is that is was simply a case of the “tiny” amounts (probably a few “skids” at a time) that slot makers would buy from Mabuchi, Sun, or “whoever”, just didn’t make the cut for a special plastic colour.
But if some “Richard cranium” wants to cheat at a club level by dicking with motors, frankly, the sooner they depart the better.
at HB club, we are currently running a series for Pioneer Legends. 10 rounds., 2 on each track.
scrutineering for the series was sooooo intense it went something like
( no body was remove in the making of this series)
“nice livery”, “thanks, enjoyed doing it”
“what tooth numbers did you put on the replacement pinion/spur?” “13/32 from memory, but I’ve lowered the final ratio a bit because I took quite a lot off the tyre diameter getting them round “
”Shoot, that’s silky smooth, what did you use on the tyres, 226 or NSR oil?” “A mix actually “
”How did you set the replacement guide?” “It’s actually a Sloting Plus, they fit better than Slot.it, hey I bought spares guys if anyone wants one, in my slot case”
I think the only class scrutineering we have really done in recent memory, was BTCC - once, when we first set up cars 3 years ago…….
