  1. The green screw terminals should be positive and negative in from your power supply and positive and negative out to the Tyre Razor, looking at the pic I can just make out OUT on the circuit board behind the terminals closest to the knob, that should be connected to the Tyre Razor. Hopefully there is an IN with a +ve and -ve on the circuit board behind the heat sink where the power supply should be connected. To add a digital display connect it across the OUT to see the voltage going to the Tyre Razor.
  2. No Plafit gears are not Ergal but they don't need to be, I have them in most of my 1/24th cars that have been running for many years without failure.
  3. A Plafit 33 tooth spur gear for 3mm axle is a direct replacement for the Revoslot, if Mr Slotcar in Hallam doesn't have one Ace Hobbies should.
  4. I like the way NSR are doing this with their 80's F1 car so that the liveries of some of the smaller teams that probably would not ever be made into a slot car can get a run.
  5. Sorry for the late notice but I just spotted this myself, Indy Car highlights on at 2pm Today (Wednesday) on Channel 93/99/Go. I don't know if this is going to be a regular timeslot but if it is I missed the highlights from the first race and it seems to be a strange time and channel to put it on if you wanted to build a following and gather the most ratings the show could get.
  6. I think the collecting part of the hobby is bigger than we know, I remember seeing that last year the Batman car out sold just about everything else available and that most of the TV/Movie cars sell more than the race cars.
  7. Scott McLaughlin has won his first Indy Car race in the first race of this year at the St Petersburg street circuit with his team mate Will Power in 3rd. Well done to Scott and Team Penske.
  8. Scalextric C2265 Williams FW20, I thought it looked off because the driver was missing but looking at the pics of the chassis there is no guide and it clearly says Hot Wheels? https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/403498856007?hash=item5df267ee47:g:lSIAAOSw~AJiBfQU
  9. I don't remember Ninco making this one, new in box apparently. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/275155940825?hash=item40109275d9:g:CAUAAOSwuylh~3cK
  10. He ended up moving to Orbost, I don't know what happened to the track but he did sell a lot of stuff before he moved but was still selling on ebay last I saw as melbourne-model-raceway and ged7. Always a fun day racing at Geds and then looking around the place, I still don't think I ever saw everything he had in there.
  11. Unfortunately I think the price increase is due to shipping costs rather than the cost of the cars so the other brands will probably increase their prices as well, I hope not but we will have to wait and see.
  12. While I don't know for sure I don't think any of these vehicles have ever been made as slot cars, I'm sure someone will correct me if I am wrong. For model kits maybe try Japan and possibly the Tamiya Mini 4WD range, if they don't have the exact car they might have something close that you could modify. If anyone is likely to have anything like this it will be in Spain, they really like their raid vehicles so if any of these Isuzu's ever ran in the Dakar someone might have made a resin body. Failing that you might be able to find a 3D print of a body and get it printed in 1/32nd scale or find someone to make the file.
  13. That is so clever, well done.
  14. If you don't need the MJK's urgently you should try ordering from Armchair racer, even if they are Out of Stock they are usually able to get most of the tyres in about 2 weeks and you can ask them to only send the order when it is complete so there is only one postage cost.
  15. I think MJK's are one of the best all round tyre which work on plastic, ferrodor and gloss wood tracks with a nice balance between grip and slip. They are very easy to true and if your rims are round you can run them straight away without truing. Are you sure you are not mixing up silicone's with MJK's, silicone's are hard to true apparently.
