  1. Sports Racer

    New track

    Where are you getting your braid from?
  2. Most of the proxy cars have guides too deep for classic Scalextric track.
  3. It's a track we rarely race on. Bob's other track is his preferred choice but it's plastic.
  4. We're back to racing - Wednesday night on Bob's track. Nice long straight for those cars that like to stretch their legs.
  5. I've been tied up each weekend with helping mum move her stuff now that she's sold her house but the stars align next Wednesday night for Round 7. I've put the word out to the local racers to see who's available. Will keep you posted on which track. Cheers Paul
  6. Technically there are still 4 rounds to go but those that need their car back let me know and I'll post them, even yours Charles. Yes, I feel guilty that I still have it so I'll add something to the package. With covid hitting so many of our guys (even I had it for a couple of weeks) it's hard to get tracks organised because people are worried about transmitting/getting it. I'm trying for the next round to be on the weekend of 8/9 March. Cheers Paul
  7. When did electronic controllers become available?
  8. By coincidence I was setting up a few of my Reno’s and thinking about fitting one with a touring car body. It’s legal.
  9. Rule changes for next year. The only change is regarding motors so there's no confusion over magnetic downforce. I'm going towards Slot.it, Scaleauto, Sideways, Revoslot, Piranha, Plafit and NSR motors only. They are readily available and you should be able to find something suitable from this lot. Let me know if I've left a brand out. Cheers Paul
  10. I'm going towards Slot.it, Scaleauto, Sideways, Revoslot, Piranha, Plafit and NSR motors only. They are readily available and you should be able to find something suitable from this lot. That's the only rule change I want to make. No fixed ratio, it won't suit different motors or individual car weight. Cheers Paul
  11. What's your best car? Fastest, easy to drive. Now find a touring car body to fit and make it faster.
  12. On this track your car was beautiful to drive. The only car to lap faster than my car.
  13. You're asking the $64,000 question. For what it's worth here's my observations. Brumos's car is an NSR so it has the benefit of coming out of the factory with a lightweight body and dimensions (width, length, height) tested by NSR to be pretty spot on. Your car has a 3D chassis, probably not designed by a team of engineers for best performance but designed to fit the Scalex Honda body. My car, like yours, also has an aftermarket chassis but that chassis is from one of the best handling cars ever built - the Scaleauto Toyota GT1. It's fitted to a Scalex Calibra body that I lightened as much as I could with a dremel. I also spent weeks testing with lead in various spots so it was as perfect as I could make it. I had 4 x Scaleauto chassis's set up in different ways and constantly tested them against each other to get the best one. Then I gave it to my brother who made it even better. I had 8 other proxy cars I went through before deciding on the Calibra. Some were close in performance. One was better but not as consistent and you must have a car that is easy to drive on the limit that doesn't deslot. I spend a lot of time getting the front of the car setup so it (almost) never deslots, just slides out. There's probably a dozen other things that make my car magic to drive but there's no way I can tell you what the magic ingredient is. If I knew then all my cars would be race winners and unfortunately they aren't. Hope I haven't confused you even more. Cheers Paul

  15. And of course the important videos. On some of the videos you'll notice some cars slowing down when they shouldn't. It hasn't happened on other tracks and I think it's because they didn't like the copper tape conductive surface.

Apologies for coming off twice with your Renault but the car felt so surefooted it wanted to be pushed to the limit - like my car. Unfortunately the short wheelbase and greater height (than my car) meant it deslotted - my car would just drift and lose time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jimB6OtkMVw Brooksy and bov https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nemj263s51w Dixie and lancelot https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAsgn8yO2iY Sports and 32coupe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GV-kjV-FSrA Review of cars 1 to 12 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_B47wBeTQA Review of cars 13 to 24 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xn93R2Y7qGo
