  1. those are very nice addition to the four trucks that they have issued. when are they going to be released ?
  2. good to hear that everyone's alright .
  3. whatever happened to the slot car factory? has anyone heard whether he is opening up another place?
  4. i had them before but i must misplaced them . it was a Q modell maybe ace hobbies would have some of them' the come in sheets with different things too
  5. i miight repaint another M.A.N. i don't feel like taking one right out the box though. maybe i'll wait till the weather gets a bit warmer....
  6. i am looking forward to those chassies... i had emailed them ages ago regarding fly truck chassies the mbslot alloy wheels are very good i had been using them for my runners i have tried some other brands too but as soon as the sponge tyres wear out they don't look good
  7. lowering the tyre diameter makes it look non scale. it seems to be imposible to race them with out magnets as they're top heavy if ever we meet up , i 'll have one guide mount spacer ready for you what truck do you have?
  8. anyone racing trucks lately ? i have been sidelined for a long while... do you race with magnets? i have added some mods to my trucks ie. made a thick guide spacer using aluminium , perspex and brass drilled the holes for a ninco pro guide they really make a big difference when racing or running them we usually add a second bar magnet underneath the chassis ,but that seems to be overkill. so took theminclucing the original magnet instead i installed a slot it magnet. try it . its more fun than having heavy magnets you have the feel of racing real trucks photos to follow soon
  9. I find it so difficult to photograph my chrome Porsche 908 and my chrome SISU
  10. sorry , did not comprehend... knock one up ??? where ? how ??
  11. got my trackmate, and the cable , unfortunately , the cable that goes from the module to the track( dead strip timing) was not included . does anyone know where could i get them made? and .... has anyone have the wiring diagarm to wire the dead strips?
  12. with my few trucks on the road, sisu,mercedes and MaN, i had to modify the guide holes to accept a slot.it wood guide or a ninco pro guide. i was going to suggest a truck series but very few are enthusiastic about racing them. :D :D
  13. got this from the audi site nice grp 5 racer
  14. happy birthday many happy returns hopefully someone gives you a slotcar for your birhday cheers
  15. i'll sell you my alfa bnib and a jag bnib .
  16. no.... you're not bored of racing.... you're just frustrated that the class/type/rules that they run doesn't agree to how you want to do your cars and what class you want to race... been there done that ... but just like what neil said, its the track owners' rules and its his track. so ... just go and race wherever and whoever invites you to race . remember its their own private premises and their rules. but somehow someday they'll see that , and even race the types you want to run. then, they might even say " why didn't we think of that before?" have fun enjoy your slot cars( and trucks if you have any)... ... life is too short ...
  17. it has been a year since i last posted on this thread..... slot car addiction??? nahhhhhhh ... never .... but i do have a compulsive buying disorder....when it comes to slotcars
  18. swift/iban etc etc.... thats european transfers for you !!! i wonder why don't they have paypal accts.? i recall one time that a real good friend "swift" ed a fair amount for airfare payments to me... not even "flight centre" staff understood what swift was .... we had to ring them ...
  19. i wonder... i had a real good look at my buggyra "s . the chassies are very very similar to the MaN , except that the man hs a large "lip" how come , the M.A.N. handles very bad ??? then i had test on the track. the buggyra ,handles like a sisu the merc is so-so. the MaN doesn't seem to handle as good. the weight of the man is more forward than any of them. so by adding enough weight fore and aft of the read axle it was as good as the others.
  20. happy birthday vince have a good one
  21. many happy returns tony. happy birthday
