  1. Nice work Rosco. Looking forward to getting mine. Paul
  2. Hi all. MEK is also used in manufacture of fiberglass and similar products (shipwrights and glassies use it every day) You maybe able to pick up from local chandler shop NOTE; this product is extremely dangerous if misused. DO NOT get i you eyes. This will make you go blind in minutes if not treated. We had a guy at work (we saved) and his screams I will never forget. Be careful lads.
  3. Rosco thanks for the reply. Seems if you want to build a chassis you need this. I have tried to drill off an Ally plate 10mm thick. Is not close enough when you get down to scale. Thanks again, Will chase him up. Paul
  4. Hi Rosco, Nice work mate. Nice to see how the Torry goes. Rosco I have been looking for a build plate for a while. Can I ask where did you get the Precision Slot build plate from. Thanks, Paul
  5. Thanks Den, Yes they are expensive. I picked up one of the Chrono kits. Needs full assembly. Thought it was worth a look. As you say the front tend is a bit light on. Have seen on here at some time a retro fit front clip/ chassis. this converts to a solid axle. If I could get one of these modification kits it may be a good thing. Cheers, Paul
  6. Hi all. Have purchased a Chrono SRC M23 (kit) Looking to set up as track car. Has any one done this as yet. Looking to see if there are issues with the front axle and or steering. I would think an axle may be better, than the steering system that is supplied with the car.. Also though some one was producing a chassis to accept an axle set up. See like a fairly well detailed kit with every thing. Thanks, Paul
  7. Will have a look on the weekend Johnny Let you now.
  8. Need to get a move on. It will be time before we know it. Good luck lads an girls (as the case may be)
  9. Hi Lads, I will look into the circuit boar d for a try (Thanks Charlesx) Will chase the Percision Slot car jig. See if we can get them from a local supplier some where in Aus. I am currently using a ceramic tile 150mm square. With scribe lines etc. Works ok Looking for the next best thing?? Thanks again, Paul
  10. Hi all, Looking for set up / build plate or board. Need for chassis construction with multiple hoes for pins. Thanks, Paul
  11. Hi guys, have a new Ferrari to build for the next comp. Have not started yet. Should have some time soon. If we were to race this year I was going to re-tune last years car. Looking forward to the proxy when it starts (eventually) Paul
  12. Hi all , well done. Been flat out at work. Opened the page tonight to find she has been rebuilt. Good work lads. All the best Paul
  13. Hi guys, The only thing I could wish for is to make posting pictures easier. Over time I and a few guys we race with, have built lots of cars 32nd and 24th scale Proxy cars and event only purpose builds. Would be nice to get then on here. Given up with photo bucket and the others. Copy and paste to much to ask for. Any way club racing is on hold in Adelaide and cars are getting built and tuned. Still trying to get my new Ferrari ready for the next Tasman Good luck all Paul

    Chase up Chad, will see if I can find his details Moved over there a few years back. He has just run a small enduro.
  15. Good work, Any help and assistance is more than most will ever do. great stuff. Some do not even care. We have seen people driving around here still throwing butts out the window. in these conditions Bastards should go to jail. Keep up the effort and good luck to all.
  16. Hi all, Alan, yes mate some times need to sit back and evaluate where you are going. Look forward to discussions on the "next round" 2021 May be, I may be able to finish a car to a standard I am happy with by then. All the best to all and good luck for next year Paul

    Wonky Wheels

    Hi all, I have just picked up a new Slot it Nissan R 390 with flat 6 and angle winder configuration. The front rims are shot , straight out of the box. Looks to be a casting issue. The hub is not true to the boss the axle is pushed into. I will put the solid rears onto the front and place air rides on the back. Chase inserts. Another $20 to the cost of the car Off we go See if we can tune this one up. New chassis looks to be OK. Paul
  18. Hi Alan, the BRM has returned ready for a tune up. See if we can got some handling for next round Paul
  19. Nice project Al, Should be a rocket as usual with that running gear.
  20. Nice work John, Yes mate you look at the guys who have become mates over years of racing. There is never any real clue to what is going on behind the smile and laughter. Our group meets on Mondays is a way to step out of the real world and have a break, fun and laughs. It does not matter that you win, loose or come second. Its all good fun. Enjoy every day and see every sun rise. Make the most of what you have. Thanks and drive straight. Paul
  21. Outstanding work. Nice detail around the doors, hatches etc.
  22. Well done to all. Nice building skills on show, driving skills to match. Need to improve for next year.
  23. Thanks lads, As expected unexplained variances in track, location, etc. That is, slot cars. (real life is similar?) Mick we all had hair once mate. Along with sanity. See what prevails for the next round. Good luck lads.
  24. Seems my little BRM did not fair well at Alan's. May be she needs some repairs any chance to have a look and get back to us Al. Paul
