  1. G'day Wondering does anyone know where to purchase the flexible strip to nail down & run a router against when routing non-radius corners? Cheers

    F1 2021, what a season

    Shame about the last lap debacle to end the season and decide the championship. Seems rules can be bent for drama. Glad it's not my $145 million invested in F1, when the goal posts are moved mid race. Like him or not, and most don't, regardless, Hamilton was robbed in that race....... No surprise, Helmut Marko threatens RedBull leaving F1 again , unless he gets his way against the [legitimate] Mercedes protest. Many saying what a brilliant finish to the season, for mine a massive let down, has made F1 a joke. Weekend racers wouldn't accept losing under the same circumstances.
  3. Received a Motul Nissan GT-R, great looking, detailed body. Body and chassis nice and flat, chassis quite rigid. Love the sidewinder set up, planty of clearance between motor and interior. Only small complaint is the guide sits a fair way below the chassis, pushing up the chassis ride height at the front. The rake is backwards, not sure if I got a bad one, or if its how they come. Any tips welcome.
  4. It's great Slot It are getting into the GT class, and offering SW out of the box. Hoping Sideways may follow for their GT range
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.

    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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Good news about the new Revo models to come, looking forward to seeing them.
  14. 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????
