    Innes Park Raceway

    haven't been doing much, put some white and red on corners, contemplating an extension......
  4. Na mate this is Col's track and It is awesome, I would love the space to have a track like Col's. (shed envy) Mine is much smaller (small space) Patiently (only just) waiting by the letterbox for car chips so we can race digital on it. Cannot wait til we have 8 cars on track at once, will be magnificent mayhem. Col and I ran 2 cars on digital a few weeks ago with the crossover section in and its a game changer! You are in Brisvegas yeah?
  5. Not for me, its not slot cars, its a video representation of slot cars, which = cars on "virtual track" or just an image on a screen. Need to stop looking at screens and start spending time in the real world. Racing slot cars can never be replaced or replicated by a computer. As DM said the slot is all about keeping the car in it and being the fastest on track. I feel this is the problem with where society is heading these days. People are moving away from human contact and moving more deeply into a world that is forgetting what being human is about. Augmented reality takes us away from each other. People talk about more depression and anxiety these days, relating and socializing with each is is what keep us happy. Race days or catchups for laps was always a good chance to have a yarn and a laugh and try beat each other on track. You cant "tune" something that's not real. Sorry for being blunt but I hate all the AI and VR bullshit that is shoved down our throats these days.
  6. looked at the link, thanks Zegas, confusing, I'd like best of both worlds. I will be the digital version for Scorpius in future but would also like to be able to run analogue also if possible. Would be no pits in analogue as I only routed one pit lane for all lanes. each lane power not necessary, and IR lane sensors would be choice
  7. Seeking info/help to setup Race Coordinator from scratch. I know nothing about Arduino or whatever that is. What would I need to buy to run RC? relays/cables/etc Does anyone have links to what exactly I would need to get my hand on ? Any help/guidance appreciated

    Racing at Ged's

    I found an old video from 2006 taken at Ged's aka Melbourne Model Raceway on an old hard drive. Ged is race controller. It's a long video but shows the slot track half of his "shop". In this video is Eno the Wonderdog, myself, Moe, Freddy (I think), Ged, Matt (sax0607), Dick (knoath) and Brett

    After much frustration with cheap pinstripe tape and it continually lifting, I got 3M and now have lines. Not perfect but good enough for now
  11. great pics, hopefully in future something like this will be on the east coast

    not sure mate, if he sees this he can comment as I'd hate to commit him to anything either way. From my experience, the best thing to do (as I found out after I binned them) is keep the part you cut for lane changer as a stencil as it is the exact size/shape you will need. On my previous track I made flipper from Perspex as it was easy to work with and I knew no different

    Innes Park Raceway

    Not much of an update, but i ran 200 laps in each lane with my NSR McLaren on Tuesday to see how lap times came up. I then ran all my NSR race cars on 20 lap qualifying for comparative lap times. cars in order of times
  14. Need help with something better than what I used. I used 6mm pinstripe tape and it looks good on the straight sections, but no chance it will stay down on corners. I've tried rubbing a plastic edge over it to flatten it, but it just rises back up. Maybe 3M do something of quality? I got this from a car auto shop but its a failure

    so lost a bit of interest lately but today thought I'd try get the old timing system working. Startline - it runs on dos its that old and it took a long time for the old pc to start up so that it would work, but got there in the end. issue with the start gantry start light sequence so ill have to investigate

    Barriers/fences finally finished, next will be power and lane changers

    Innes Park Raceway

    Been a while since an update, motivation dropped among other things. Will hopefully have the walls/fences done today and then power is next
  22. In need of inspiration for color of the outside of fences/walls, inside will be white and as the track is dark it needs to be lighter than that, any suggestions? Pics?
