  1. Nicely done, looks great.
  2. Hi, Yes you are correct about the in and out terminals, doesn't have - or + shown though on either of them. I have tried to wire it up, power to the 'in' and with the digital display wired up to the 'out' just to see if any power was coming through. Just like I would do with the digital display to a 9v battery. Even swapped the wires over to check if - and + were the other way round. I'll try it all again to see if I can get it working. Cheers for your input Matt
  3. Some years back I think it was Phil K who posted a picture of this module. I purchased one and thought I'd use it for my Tyre Razor etc but went with another module in the end. Anyway, since I'm stuck at home with the kids with the Rona Virus I've been keeping myself busy with plenty of Slot related things to do. Thought it was time to actually find out how this works, seems easy enough but I can't seem to power it. Now I've tried to wire it up a few different ways, not the best pic, but you can see it has the in/out connections on the left, knob for adjusting the voltage etc. I'd like to use this if possible, adding in a digital display as well. Thought there may be someone with the how to/how not to do it ideas. I currently used one of these modules I purchased years back (another Phil K link) which works great for my Tyre Razor and Tamiya 'running road'. Easy enough to use and I adjust the voltage with a tiny screwdriver in the brass screw located in the 'blue thing' at the top. If I can wire in the other module I can use the knob to adjust the voltage instead. Anyway, thought I'd put it up here, searched the forum but with most of the old pics missing I couldn't find the answer I was after. cheers Matt

    Racing At Syds

    Good to see you make it down to Syd's Gary. Unfortunately my young fella tested positive for Covid Saturday morning so I thought it'd be best if I stayed away. Hopefully next time racings on I'll get to meet you. Good to see you had a great night. cheers Matt
  5. Picked up another couple of French Type 1 Lotus 16's not long ago. These 2 have the silver painted rims which is different to the usual releases. I did buy one some years back with silver rims but changed them out to the standard yellow. Looks like they were released like this and not painted by the previous owner as I thought. Another 2 off the endless list of Lotus 16's.
  6. Yeah, bit of a roadtrip for myself Gary, about 1 1/2 hours drive South from Fremantle. Straight run down the Kwinana Freeway/Forrest Highway. I believe if you're moving up Joondalup way it may be an extra hour again. Luckily I have a mate who lives 10 mins away from the Brunswick Junction track, always a good excuse to head down for a couple of days. Especially when it involves Slot cars and a few cold drinks. Yeah it should be a great event Den, the Brunswick Junction Slot Car Club who are hosting the event are a great bunch of blokes. I believe the club is going to re-braid the entire 8 lane track and I've heard that the Council are looking at extending the Slot car track building by another 8m. It's great that the local Shire/Council are on board and looking forward to the event being hosted in Brunswick Junction. Matt
  7. Yeah should be good Gary. Pretty sure we're going to head down again on July 30th for another practice run. Most of us had never been to the track prior to January and a couple of weeks ago.
  8. For those interested, the Brunswick Junction Slot Car Club in Western Australia will be hosting the inaugural 2022 NSR Australian Championships. For those interested in attending the event in September you can register at: https://scalexseller.com/pages/nsr-australian-championship cheers Matt
  9. Just had a quick look through the 2022 range Gary. Good to see them finally bringing some buildings back. Just read elsewhere that the building are one piece resin too. Being a fan of the Gulf livery I don't know if it's just me or do most of the 2021/2022 releases look more 'toy like'. Of the 4 new 2022 Gulf liveries only the Aston Martin 'Dirty Girl' looks good IMO. The Blues Brothers Dodge Monaco Bluesmobile looks cool, probably pick up 1. And you can't have the first two Back to the Future cars without the third, that makes 2. Still waiting on Kitt from the 2021 Catalogue, that'll be 3. There's some nice new cars, smaller list than usual but understandable in todays World. With the price of most of the new releases listed around 53 Pounds ($100) I think I'd rather spend my slot money on other brands. An NSR, Slot.it, Revoslot etc don't look that expensive anymore compared to Scalextric, especially given their quality components. Looking forward to seeing what the 2022 Australian releases will be. Matt
  10. Nice Gazza, looks a treat. The more I see what people have been doing with the 3D printers the more I want one, lol.
  11. We use MJK on all 10 classes at WASCRG. No problem with truing them, actually the easiest to true in my opinion. Australian made too.
  12. Yeah, bit more work to do on mine to. Gave it a run last night, if you call it that, lol. Noticed when giving it a run last night it was jumping all over the place. The rear wheels and gear are all on the p!@s, haven't been pushed on square to the axle. Will try to straighten these, if all else fails I'll just use some metal wheels.
  13. Had a crack modifying my spare Cougar yesterday afternoon. Took a before and after pic to show the difference. Have gone with the MJK tyres which we use on the Pioneer cars at the club in the bottom pic but will see what else I have laying around. These seem to be slightly bigger than the originals but can be easily sanded down. Found some small front tyres which fit nicely, just touching the set up block atm. Unfortunately this car has no interior, I will have to make one up to suit and the car will be ready to go. Car definitely looks heaps better now, cheers Wobble for posting up pics of your modifications. Just noticed I haven't put the exhausts back on, will modify them to fit like you have Wobble. cheers Matt
  14. The stance even looks better now with the front end not up in the air. Nice work, will modify my spare Cougar to resemble this one. cheers
  15. If all else fails and your unable to obtain one locally, here or NZ, try Lendons of London. Picked up the Cougar chassis's and a few others at a decent price. Might take a while, especially this time of year. At least it gives you an option. Matt
