    Looks Great Mark. Should be a treat to drive on. Lets twist again ,like we did last summer, Now that's a big change from the previous track.
  5. Talking about Pattos Decals, Has others noticed that he must have changed his Printer or something, As the last couple of Decals i have received are now no longer solid in Colour, Blurred, and not aligned. Some of the Decals you can see white showing past the completed Decal when printed. Also now we also have to clear the decals first prior to submerging them into water. It's a shame, seems that his Quality has dropped. from the previous printed ones from the past where they were solid in colour and a high gloss coating.

    Would be much easier to just sell in 2 options. Option 1 Stand alone Bodies Option 2 to buy as a complete running car with chassis etc. Not everyone wants to start a new class just because of 1 chassis. If you have 20 odd guys racing, Do you think all 20 are going to buy one? No Way! Like it was said before, All good things come to those who wait. So Will have to sit back and wait for a body

    Only for the guys in your club? Do you offer them to anyone else... or just members of your club? At least I can buy one of the EHs without having to join a club..... Thanks Falcon. Dick I'm a Buyer not a manufacture of slotcars. If i made Products, Then yes i would offer a cheaper cost to other Clubs ! Same as what i do for myself, If its a school etc i give them a cheaper rate ! Called PR But i'm not saying you cannot buy one of these EH's Knoath for a 110.00 not a problem at all, Enjoy it ! ( it should be good ) I'll wait for a Body by itself from someone else then instead of being told i have to buy a chassis with a body i do not wish to purchase. Cheers Just my 2 cents worth not getting into a pissing contest here I have been sitting here listening to the banter and cannot believe that you would think that $110.00 for a home grown product is over the top. The chassis is a work of art in itself plus you are gettting 4 alloy wheels ,drill blank axles ,quality tyres (something that you dont get with the mass produced cars) and you get to say to your mates "look at what I just put together" instead of "look what came out of China this week". If you put all the quality components into one of those cars I am sure the price would be comparable, plus when the axle supports on your Scalextric or Ninco (no offence to either brand ) breaks you have to buy a new chassis. Lasercut stainless steel chassis don't break. Don't bank on buying a body on it's own as they will only be availabe as a kit unless you find a resin copy as ours are made of plastic so they don't break like resin ones.If you are in a club and want to purchase several cars I will do them cheaper just email me for a price . The club members I am affilliated with did as we are running a series with them shortly Kind Regards Syd It is a nice looking Eh Syd. Body looks awesome, :nice: just not interested in the Chassis with the body. I do Hope it does well. Cheers
  9. Nice looking track Like the Detailing work. Keep it up.

    Gees to many Puppets! Are you getting payed by them now ? A body for 40.00 by itself would be good for all to choose which way they would like to go! Who wants one of those chassis anyway with a body when you are trying to make cars even in a class that already have had there cars set up with scratch built chassis. Remember its a Hobby Not a million dollar enterprise! And SUPPORT those local clubs out there with discounts as thats where your main buyers are in the first place. P.S Not saying the Product is not good. The quality is Good.

    $110.00 for a kit? you have to be joking. Will wait until someone else molds another body or copies this one. Even scalextric could do one of these with a sold black window for $50.00 :bday:

    Wrong area sorry But Congratulations Dave and Mum on your new arrival last week :arggg:
  16. Great to see those black windows are still there pfffffffft Get with the times !
  17. 2 reasons: 1) I have had 1 resistors wire go all over the place so had to replace the resistor. 2) it gives a smoother swipe ( not grating ) like the factory wet wound types. i had the same problem with one of the wires also spreading all over the resistor. I just used quick 5 min Araldite , Waited for 30minutes Then sanded smooth and added wd40 onto my finger and wiped the resistor, Have had no problems for over a year now. Nice and smoooooth
  18. Sounds good Ched, Looking forward to seeing if you feel its worth the money. Keep us posted
  19. Looks kinda windy in the shed Might need to plant some trees Track Finished ?

    Do not know where Phoenix only run 10 lap heats, As we run Teams events, Fuel Racing, Enduro's etc which can be anywhere from 10 laps to 200laps plus. Not to mention our LeMans 8 hour enduro where we do over 1500 laps. As to the a reply from Phoenix regarding enthusiastic response (Gar5 ) Quote )I remember trying to contact the Phoenix group theough ( r ) the website about joining/coming along, but got a less than an enthusiastic response (read none) (end Quote ) We get many emails from people weekly regarding joining and coming along and having a look etc , Plus spammmm. Not to mention those who spell like ( wood like 2 join etc ) Our Responses are always polite, and we mainly see how interested the person really is before we just give out our house details etc of our club tracks. ( As these are family homes in the first place ) Hope that may have cleared some Facts from Fiction. Regards P.s just have to remember to have fun, its not all about championships. :nice:
  22. Nice looking track layout Foz Keep up the nice work :nice:
  23. Thanks Big Al and Mark. Will have a look at the Salvo's and see if they have old tea strainer's laying around. Sounds like a good idea
  24. Very Nice postings Springbok Racer ! Thanks BTW where can i buy the Mesh that are being used as Grills etc on these cars ? I was thinking towards stockings stretched and painted either black or silver etc. Any help.
  25. For what we pay, They are still over priced. Like Dave said in previous post, --- At least lower the cars to the right hight -- Agree here ! Not that will not cost any more to do! If you are going to do it, Then do it right in the first place! Then others will not bitch. Also the profits made from previous models should now pay for the tooling for interiors for the later models out! Also i am sure that if the cars had interiors and the right car height in the first place, Then maybe they could sell these for 60.00 or 55 each. I'm sure that i'm not the only one here that would be willing to pay another 5 dollars more if done right.
