  1. Thanks Phil and peeps, am onto it !
  2. Thanks all for the feedback, and ideas in the RC software where to find out more about Ardunio ?? a wiring diagram or similar ?
  3. hi all, I am thinking of adding a single lane timing system to the San Phoeno SS3. Does anyone have one they arnt using and want to sell ? or the electronic gurus out there want to make one up ? I don't have a pc with a parallel port, but plenty of old laptops here with usb or serial port. I can make the gantry, just looking for something I can plug in, load software and away we go. Thanks Martin

    Old Minis

    Found an old MINI set, not the rally one the other one at a local second hand shop today. Cars need a clean and not sure if they go or not but bodies look in tack and the front bumpers are in really good nick. Original track is rusty badly, controllers and transformer included. No lid on box that I could see. Tyres on the cars a bit hard but cars are complete. I might go back one day this week with a 9v battery and see if the cars turn over. If they do, what do you think they are worth ? The track will go straight into the bin. thanks Phoeno
  13. Hi Mel, I thought about doing a series of photos with lego guys building it.... next time ! Hope you are well mate Martin
  14. Hi All, Have been working on the planned control tower a little over the long weekend. I have had this kicking around in my head for a while but just couldn't 'see it' on the track. Sometimes it was the size I had in mind wasn't going to look right in the space I had allocated, the styling of the building wasn't right, too simple, sometimes too over the top for a converted farm track. Eventually I struck a balance of size vs simplicity vs ease of build vs style. I have gone with 6mm balsa sheet for the walls and square 12.5mm balsa for the corners of the building for strength. There will be mirrored (not perfectly mirrored) glass windows as there is nothing to see inside the building. Cardboard backed, chrome looking stuff. A verandah will be added in time to the top level, after the windows and roof. The plan is to have the spectators (aka homies) looking out from the verandah over the track, like you do at Lakeside Raceway in Brisbane, somewhere I have spent a little bit of time over the years. A canteen is planned for the ground level along with a toilet and stairs to go to the top levels. (3 levels in total) Overall so far so good. A few daggy bits need tiding up and sanding back before painting. The thick 6mm balsa cuts pretty well but occasionally 'chips' away at the edges. Nothing that can't be filled and sanded back to get a nice tidy finish. A decent square and stanley knife with sharp blade certainly helped get this off to a good start.... thanks Bunnings. A few progress picks....
  15. I have the Ninco one as above. Have driven 3 laps with it, will do more soon. And let you know.
