  1. Thanks for the replies all, the rims are 20 x 10 on a 1/28 scale car. Looking for an outside diameter around 24mm. The rims have no step, but I don't mind if the tyres do, will just glue and true them and enjoy the cushioned "air" effect. Cheers
  2. Gday, wondering if anyone has any ideas if there is a urethane tyre to suit a rim with dimensions: 20mm diameter and 10mm wide Cheers
  3. Gday, anyone had any experience with the BRM TTS 1:24 Abarth cars? The aluminium chassis config is unique, I haven't seen anything like them - front wheel drive angle winders, 19k Mabuchi motor, stub rear axles and ball bearings supporting all axles. Great looking bodies too

    F1 2021, what a season

    Great to see some young Aussie's progressing into Single seater's main game. I really liked the quali race Vince, would like to see a few more to get a gauge on how well they work at different circuits.

    F1 2021, what a season

    Same as Shaynus, really looking forward to the second half of this year's calendar. The mid pack teams are so close and competitive. In previous years' championship charge, Hamilton was behind in the first half, but surged home in the second half to win. RedBull have bridged the gap to Merc, but in my view, Max is generally less clean in combat than Lewis. Have seen Lewis back off in combat with Max many times, to Lewis detriment!!! Would like to see a mid field racer push Max off an apex dearly!!! Overall though, gotta appreciate the light of F1, with so much dark in the world at the moment.

    F1 2021, what a season

    Liberty Media would love those comments after paying $4 billion + for F1 Oh well, it's good to have a chat, I'm interested in other's views. Agree Hamilton Mercedes have dominated hybrid era, just like some other driver/team combos in the past, but they have generally raced much cleaner on track. Hamilton is bloody brilliant in combat without making mistakes or resorting to unsporting tactics. Mercedes haven't been caught out for many technical faults off track. I appreciate that. Hoping the new rules will allow car design to race closely without overheating and tyre degradation, Would be good to get rid of DRS altogether, it is a simulation of an overtake. I'll still be watching even if it is a constant cycle of evolution. Nothing in this sport comes easy - Ferrari's lack of results despite all their finances and resources are a prime example. Cheers
  7. What a year for F1, shame they are changing the regs so the cashed up teams can surge forward again. The racing is the best since the start of the hybrid engine era. Some encouraging comments from McLaren guru re Aussie Dan, https://www.speedcafe.com/2021/08/03/mclaren-details-exactly-why-ricciardo-has-struggled/ But Dan's results vs Norris still a long way behind, Norris 3rd on 113 pts vs Dan 50 pts in 8th. Watching Hamilton battle cleanly with Alonso lap after lap in Hungary was brilliant. Hungary overall was a race that had everything, worth watching if you haven't seen it.
  8. Experience I have had with the 3D chassis/motor pod option is expensive, but it makes a pig of a car predictable and driveable, whilst keeping ride height looking normal. HRS chassis tend to lower the car too much IMO. Wouldn't want these models doing Mosler lap times, just be a little easier to set up and more affordable out of the box. Models could come with a lower grip tyre to introduce wheel spin and limit maximum motor power to the lower end of the scale. In that configuration, they are great fun to race. Hoping Revoslot expand their 1/32 range in this area.
  9. Good news about the new Revo models to come, looking forward to seeing them.
  10. Probably posted this before, and with full respect to current manufacturers Scalextric, SCX & Pioneer, but when is a performance brand like Slot.It, NSR, Thunderslot et al going to embrace the 70's era of muscle car models? The option of throwing a 3D chassis and motor pod under a Scaley body is there, but turns an $80 slot car into a $200 slot car. First world problem I know, but I just don't get it why GT3, modern & classic LMP, Group C, Group 5, DTM etc are well represented by the top tier 1/32 RTR manufacturers, but this era of cars most of us love is neglected????

    Thanks Brumos !

    NSR PORSCHE 917/10K

    Thanks for the info. Wondering how does the width and wheelbase compare between the NSR 908/3 and NSR 917/10k? Regards
  13. G'day Phil, the problem is always at start of the first heat of each new race. Unfortunately there is no common thread that we can find. We change race formats and settings often, but generally always have the first heat issue.
  14. Our club loves RC software, and runs it with Trackmate interfaces on a couple of routed tracks. We have had the first lap, first heat mis-register issue for so long now, we automatically re-start the first heat of each new race every time. If we don't, 95 times / 100, at least one lane, more often multiple lanes, do not register the start of the first lap "0", despite not breaking the start. Same as G34's feedback, only ever happens on the first lap, of the first heat, of each new race, regardless of race format. We have quietly raised this problem previously without luck, and have often joked that we are the only club using RC that experiences this problem, or the only club that notices the problem Dave does such great job with RC, it is very much a labour of love for him, and we love it so much, that this is really only a minor issue, but clubs racing for sheep stations should be aware. Cheers Caddo
  15. Interested in your vote for the fastest brand overall, stock set up except open tyres and weight added on magnet free, smooth timber tracks. Thanks & regards
