  1. Hi Chas Couple of things with adapting a 1/32 chassis - the wheels on 1/24 cars are larger and thus the axle position isn't correct. Also 1/24 wheels use 3mm axle so need 6mm oilites so the standard 1/32 won't fit. BRM don't sell an adjustable chassis. Scaleauto sells one but it it more designed for modern GT cars. I have considered the brass route and have made two. It doesn't appeal to me as a solution for the 15 or so cars I have. Sharpeways chassis are almost as dear as metal chassis once you factor in conversion and postage. cheers David
  2. All good - I am looking for a chassis that would be suitable for converting some 1/24 kits such as the re-released Tamiya bodies into slot cars. A few metal chassis options available but they cost $70-$100 + per chassis. I have found a few options on thingiverse and have a mate with a 3D printer. What I am keen on doing is designing a chassis myself and then getting it printed. Thought if you are in the 'development phase' it was worth asking. cheers David
  3. My order from USA arrived yesterday - posted 22/4 arrived 26 May a bit slower than usual. DM
  4. When you go to activity and look at unread content - how do you read the new post instead of going to the original topic. I tried to read one tonight and I ended up on page 1 of 380 pages. Easy enough to get to the end but confusing because I was expecting to go to the post rather than the topic home page. So I went back to try again but couldn't work it out. LOL
  5. My last order from the UK took 6 weeks to arrive and that was ordered 12/3 before a lot of the lockdown stuff started. I decided to hold of on any orders for a bit to allow things to settle down. Ordered some cars from the US 3 weeks ago hope that it arrives soon. cheers David
  6. Ok wow - 7 years ago I started this build. Funny thing is lately I have been thinking about pulling the track down and starting again. In the 7 years I have collected a few 1/24 cars so I am wanting a track I can test and tune them on. Then funnily enough I re-discovered trains and so after taking the train track down to build a slot car track I am now thinking the reverse - take the slot car track down a build a train track. Will see how it all goes. In the dreaming and planning phase at the moment. I have a space 7m by around 1.8 - 1.5m so room for a long single lane slot track and some trains. DMN
  7. Hi team - when you go to a post and the images don't load is there anyway we can make them load? I worked out with my own posts if I edit the post the images then appear. Was wondering if there was anything we can do for other posts? cheers DM
