  1. Thanks Branco. I am realizing that now Thanks Grant. It does look much better with braid
  2. Thanks Cam, got the track half wired up tonight which allowed me to do half a lap around the track and am very pleased with the results so far, i am sure i will be regetting not doing it earlier
  3. Well after years of running with copper tape i have finally got some spare cash to convert the track to magnabraid. We had our last racemeet on copper tape last Friday night. Now i have about an hour or 2 work left and i will be able to give it a try. I am looking forward to not having to replace it again Cheers John
  4. The new layout looks like a fun drive mate!
  5. We will be going Facebook live for the first time this Friday Night and will be looking to do it on a regular basis. So if you are keen on checking out our racemeets you can so via our North Bris Slots Facebook page. The live feed will start at 7pm and finish between 10.30-11.00pm Sydney time Cheers John
  6. Looks great Grant

    Nah mate i wish. I have just sold all my RC gear so im investing some of it to converting the track from copper tape to magnabraid. Will be easy to do but will cost me around 1k but will be worth it

    Pretty sure Armchair has none in stock anyway going by their website as i checked last night. I will be probably buying through MR Slotcar as they seem to have stock going by their website

    Hi Guys. After reading some old threads here i am unsure if Magnabraid is still available. But i am chasing no more than 150m worth and if it is still available the best place to buy it. Any help would be greatly appreciated Cheers John
  11. We have run a 5 hour GT Enduro with SSD running Race Coordinator Digital as the RMS. The race ran without an issue for the whole 5 hours. Most of the guys that race here love the enduros as with digital you dont need to run brackets to change lanes like in analog so we just set fuel burn to last for around 10min stints and do driver swaps when you come in to pit to fuel up which gives guys about 20-25sec to swap drivers while fueling up. Cant wait to do our 1200 lap Enduro on the Bathurst weekend Saturday with Cam's 1/24 Slotworx V8's later this year
  12. Cheers Wobble. Yeah the Slotworx sound awesome and the fun they are producing is amazing. Best part is too if someone is silly enough to outbrake themselves and hit the car in front it usually only deslots the car that caused it so it will help to teach guys to be careful when trailing close to the car in front.
  13. Racing has been fun on the new track, we have taken a real liking to the 1/24 Slotworx V8's and we had our first racenight with them on Friday only running 4 car heats but we did have 6 on in practice, we will move into 6 car races over the next couple of racemeets before we start our 8 round series in 2 months time. And some footage from Friday http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJcyz6CECQw Cheers John
  14. Sorry guys not anymore i gave mine back to Rick
  15. Thanks Branco, i feel the best is yet to come in 2017
  16. Thanks Branco. Yes the GT'S are running mint atm and we have a good group of quality drivers too which makes the racing more enjoyable.
  17. Just over a week ago we had our first racemeet for the year and also our first Enduro for the year too with it being a 3 Hour Modern GT Enduro. It was a great night as we had 15 guys turn up so we went with 3 drivers per team and ran 5 cars only in the race and pretty much all the cars went the 3 hours with nothing broken so the only time they stopped was when they came into pits for fuel and a driver change with the winning car being a Scalextric Bentley getting 923 laps followed by a Scalextric Mclaren on 900 laps and third was a Scalextric Aston Martin 885laps. Here is some footage taken from the race which also shows some footage from a simulated night part of the race where we turned out most of the lights, and the last 20 seconds shows probably one of the best overtaking moves of the night where I was stuck behind a bunch of 3 cars when I dove into the 3rd lane up the hill and got past all 3 by the time it comes back to 2 lanes. http://youtu.be/lrzzpl-_H8M Cheers John
  18. We just started our first series on the new track last Friday which was Modern GT and we equalled our best turnout with 17 guys turning up to race and we were missing 1 of the regulars and have 2 more guys interested since then so it will be interesting to see how many turn up at our next Racemeet. I have also got a couple of videos uploaded from Friday http://youtu.be/G1-WYJhTGuE http://youtu.be/mHpxzJvI1SQ Cheers John
  19. I was playing some slot cars with my son today and decided to play around with the slow motion on my camera and got some cool footage of him drifting it onto the back straight, I love the controlled slides we get on the wood track. Would also be great to do a slow motion in this section on the first lap of a race. http://youtu.be/A9sfZ9D0AoY Cheers John
  20. Cheers Branco Thanks Matt i was pretty happy with it considering its only the 2nd racemeet on the new track. Yeah mate John has spoken about you guys since he has come back to QLD, i think this will be about his 2nd year racing with us. I will let him know the boys said hello when i see him next which will be in 2 weeks as he is nominated for our Bathurst weekend Enduro. Cheers John
  21. We had a good turnout with 12 guys last night and some races started to be a lot closer than last fortnight, we were also missing at least 2 regulars last night so we had plenty of marshalls for the 6 car races and we also had a guy who didnt race but marshalled in the centre of the track all night which was greatly appreciated by the boys. Here is some footage from the Modern GT B-Final which was a 40 lap race plus being alot of the guys are still getting used to the track so there was still alot of crashes going on. The A-Final which I was in was much less carnage I would have liked to get footage of that but was driving hopefully I can get some good footage of an A-Final soon. http://youtu.be/Iw7D0hljiaM Cheers John
