  1. Hi Paul Put me in for another painfull run with the Renault Megane#21,with a better set of tyres this time hopefully to grip up on the Ferradore. Cheers Jimmy
  2. Have a few contenders in mind just have to tune to do a lap,their that ugly they were put in the bottom bottom draw Cheers Jimmy
  3. Tracks a goer,only running 10 volt at the moment,12v would scare me too much Experimenting with track prep trying to get all types of tyres comfortable as I have a big variety of cars & tyre combos & I hate shelf queens. MJK's are very good,NSR super grips are getting there,foam are working good on some & not so good on others,I think some of them just need a good clean as most haven't had much run lately. Track is tight & suits 1/32 better than 1/24th,with a couple of thousand laps I'm getting used to the tight corners & not as worried as I was the first few laps,having some grip certainly helps but I don't want too much. My 1/24th Nascars are the best of the 1/24th group which makes me happy as they are my favourite class. Cheers Jimmy best free image hosting Plain & simple under the bonnet what fish can i put with a betta
  4. Hi Rosco Just a little tip on your wheel machining,With many hundreds of wheels behind me & many mistakes,I found the best way to drill out the axel hole is to do it last before you part it off & use a small centre drill to find true centre then use the double drill method,where the first drill is .010" to .015" smaller than your finish size,the second drill [axel size] only takes minimal material & acts similar to a reamer. Also all my Outside diameter turning I use a 2 mm wide carbide insert parting tool,there is not much load cutting ally & saves a lot of time. Cheers Jimmy
  5. Here's my track update,all painted & routed,bottom braided & bridges refitted ready for their braid tomorrow. Best part of a Slot car track is all the storage room underneath,but the bride still thinks I've got too much crap Cheers Jimmy food on sawmill

  7. Hi Paul Tom used selfie mode on his phone to record,easier to check if everything is working ,might have limited room at rear of phone to see whats going on. Cheers Jimmy
  8. With so many members of Auslot in the field thought it might be cool to share the Vid of Rd 7 Qually in Calgary Canada. Might be the only slot racing in the world at the moment so a big thanks to Tom for the time & effort put in during this Pandemic. Race will be this weekend with Tom's son the other driver,with each car having to do 8 mins minimum & 27 cars to run should have a very healthy hand shake at the end,just won't be able to use it. https://www.facebook...30492164034367/ Cheers Jimmy
  9. Scratching around looking for pics of my other Can-Am's & latest builds couldent find a collective pic of them so was a good excuse to do a photo shoot on my new track. My favourite all time Can-Am is the Yellow Vic Elford McLaren,although it's a Lexan body we have learned how to make them look as good as a plastic kit,in our Australin Plafit Championships where the concourse points are added to race points to determin the winner. marimo moss ball plant grab n go Cheers Jimmy stay safe all
  10. Hey Chris looks like the Proxy's aren't the only thing we have in common Here's a pic of some of my 1/24th Can-Am rebuilds. Cheers Jimmy
  11. Love the P4's Mac,ordered a Policar body & chassis from the Chair last week,as much as I love building my track I can't wait to get back to car building. Cheers Jimmy stay safe all.
  12. Very nice build Chris,& if it goes as good as your Proxy cars it will one sweet ride Cheers Jimmy
  13. I've been a bit bussy this past week & a half using the lock down as an excuse to build my new slot track. The bride & I moved house last October & with the downsizing my old track did not fit so sold it off to a mate,made round to go round After many hundreds of track designs viewed I settled on a track from Auckland NZ,Henderson Minature Motor Racing Club with a few changes to fit my garage. It will be a 3 laner with 100mm lane spacing MDF & painted in Semi Gloss Paving Paint,hopefully it will suit 1/24 as well as 1/32nd that will be very helpful in setting up my Proxy cars in the future. With my old age catching up with me this will probable be my last track build before I head off to Boot Hill . I'm enjoying the build as I like to use my hands to create things & can't wait to get it up & running to tune & test my car builds. here's some pics so far, how much rest between workouts The HMMRC track New track Old Tack with the Grand kids having some fun. I'll update as the build progresses. Cheers Jimmy
  14. Hi Zack Welcome to the land down under,you'll notice a few familiar names on here from Home Racing World. Cheers Jimmy
  15. Bullring pulled the pin last Thursday,we have a few oldies that are not in perfect health & Glen's son has a very low immune system & the risk is too great. Everyone agreed the break was the safest option & with 15 odd regulars the 1.5 mtr safe distance would be very hard to enforce even with such a large room. Everyone keep safe & we'll get through this together. Cheers Jimmy upload pic
