  1. Howdy all, Lemon juice is what was used a long time ago to clean COX mag wheels. There is a place in Lobethal (South Australia) - named The Parts Box that makes a LOT of repo stuff for these cars. have a look in the "slot Car" parts around 2551 , 2552 , 2572 & 2575.....etc did not find screens though.... Web page is 'thepartsbox com ' and does online ordering. Dennis
  2. Nope.... Whenever someone asks me to look at something on Facebook, my 'standard' reply is What's Facebook.... By the way, the pics are bl**dy Marvelous.....

    Old Bloke

    Howdy Conrod1, welcome aboard. It seems that a lot of us 'Old Blokes' are on this forum. Posting pics. I just found this for another guy. At the top, select 'Forums' then scroll ALL the way to the bottom and select 'Help' Lots of info here, but if you look at 'posting' there is some help for attaching pics under 'attaching' Hope this helps, Dennis
  4. Interesting ! Which 'Mosfet' controller are you building ? Also, I use the single row pins from the Arduino kits from Jaycar to make single inline sockets for resistor modules. Stackable Header set for Arduino - Cat # HM3207

    New Shed New Track

    Nowhere near ready for that Triggy Nice looking track. It should be getting close.. Dennis
  6. Phil, are either of these (this one pictured or the one on the bench) from the English club controller, on SFI ? Dennis
  7. G'day Alan, track looks good.. Quite a few guys would recocnise it , but would be expecting a bit of banking on this near corner But then again, if they are Victorians, they would probably like it as it is. See ya, Dennis

    This one looks like a 2/3 scale FW190 !
  10. That is what they used to do with 1/24 'Dynamic' motor mounts to create 'scratch-builts', back in the sixties
  11. John, That lathe is exactly what I have been using since 1984 !! Still works as good as the day Ii bought it. Oh and by the way, once you have had a lathe, you will not be able to be without one. Dennis
  12. Shadow, I agree with the fairness of 'track braking' on ALL lanes, but from a motor builders point of view, I would like to see a 'LOW oHms' resistor, rather than a dead short across the track as the brakes - in the region of 0.5 to 2.0 oHms. My reasoning is that when a hand controller applies 'full brakes' it is providing a short circuit at the controller socket, but I would suggest that most track wiring would have about 0.5 oHms between the power source and the controller socket. This VERY low oHms will not 'kill' the motor as much as a 'dead short' ( I would not want to race a Gp15 and above on any track that did this sort of 'track braking' ) This is just my thinking. Dennis
  13. Kev's track was moved to the 'shed' in 1987. I got one lane working, one week before the 1987 NATS, so that I could test my Grp15. Dennis

    Hi all, this was seen at a Zipple Cruise in Adelaide, 5th November 2013. I hope the links work. 302 with 347 stroker crank, Quad dual throat Webbers, Cross-over headers, Porsche 5 speed gearbox - 360Kw at rear wheels !!
