    Copper Tape

    Plenty of info on copper taping plastic track here. http://www.slotforum.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=19812 Phil

  8. For anyone that's interested here's the link to Myrons plastidip track that Jonnyfly41 refers to http://www.oldslotracer.com/Myron2.html Plastidip puts out another product called HCF, a flexible water based plastic coating for wood, metal and plastic, comes in eight colours including grey, might be another possibility. Smallest container you can get is 3.78L so works out a bit expensive to try if it doesn’t do the job. http://www.plastidip.net.au/index.php?modu...7875515625-6910 Phil
  9. Is it worth soldering all the joins together? I have read many topics on this forum, some say yes, some say no, some say coppertape the whole thing - BUT, once this track is together, it will be pretty much nailed down - so is there a point to doing this? Or , when assembling, should a SMALL piece of copper tape be used between the joins? If you want to put something on the joins try using a Silver conductive pen available from http://jaycar.com.au/ type in ns3033 in their search box. It's highly conductive and dries in a few minutes, Just a little on each join as you put the track together, it tightens up the joins as well but you can still pull the track apart later if you decide to change it. Phil
  10. Try http://jaycar.com.au/ they have panel mounted circuit breakers, just type in circuit breaker in their search box. Here's a site that recommends using the 3 amp breaker for home tracks. http://www.slotcarcorner.com/Articles/Enha...Panel_HowTo.asp Phil
  11. I assume you get it to the 160 laps ok, once you have done that hold the button down again and it will start counting the laps backward from 169. Phil

  14. Here's a link on how to make the rotary switch using diodes, they work well. http://homepage.mac.com/pmarchand/cheap_an..._adjustable.htm
  15. Another thing you could try is get yourself a silver conductive pen from jaycar, about $25.00 and use it on all the joins, no need to dismantle the track, easy to do and works great. Phil
