  1. Wood also. Will get better tyres, something has changed as this isn't the only pair or packet of MJK tyres throwing out weird results
  2. Having just replaced tyres with MJK's I have to say I am not at all impressed with the grip provided, worse than the original tyres that came with the car, a Slot.it Maserati. The reason for replacing the tyres was to get wider wheels and tyres over the original skinny wheels and tyres. I've decided to sell all my MJK tyres that are new and unopened.

  4. Howdy Ray, Finally found the post I've been looking for, we have spoken on the phone a while back. Now that we are free to mingle, those of us double jabbed at least, you can call in mate when you are next in Taree, I will PM you the address etc. Been a life saver having my own track to tinker on and tune some cars. If you have a few cars, bring them along, if not, no foul mate, I've got plenty including controllers that you can use, I've got you covered. Johnno Shenanigans Raceway
  5. I agree John with what you say about this hobby and industry is filled with terrific, knowledgeable and helpful people. So far this slot car industry has been the only one that I've come across that are so helpful. Not at all good that you have received threats and other crappy comments. I for one have had numerous logging in issues, still do these issues are what have stopped me being active on these forums, having to fight to sign in is a complete PITA so I've moved to other forums that have no issues. I do understand there have been upgrades made to the software used here and just see there are small teething issues, I am sure things will return to normal with the forums software. You take care John and hope to see you back here or elsewhere, you are a considerable part of slot cars that I read and follow even though I don't say much, I still lurk in the backgrounds reading
  6. I stumbled across software named Recollector, essentially a database/spreadsheet that you can customise the fields load photo's and print out a hardcopy when needed, even has a phone app that allows me to take my collection with me. I've got things setup that it works via a home network as well, something the developer didn't know would work, it does. The trial gives you a limited number of entries, from memory 30, the registration was cheap also You can multiple collections setup (registered version) such as coin collection, slot car collection, CD collection can all be created and edited under Recollector Quick screen snip showing entries The edit entry screen

    Different Brands

    Every brand has it's good and bad, even higher rated user brands, there will always be something that needs some attention regardless of cost and popularity. Saying that, NSR's, Revoslot, Slot.it, Slotworx can be relied upon to be great cars on the track, out of the box they are steps ahead to get racing. As for learning what's what, how brand A stacks up against brand B, you will see clearly and very fast what is what. Take the Scalextric Trans-Am class we race, these cars simply take more work tuning and tweaking things, Scalextric are just pigs out of the box, not as bad as Pioneer cars are even worse than Scalextric to get racing. I've lucked in with my two Trans-Am cars, they both needed tuning as usual, after doing the basics I've managed to have one great car and the other one currently mediocre performance wise. So get your hands on them and decide for yourself. The main point you need to remember is the track, plastic vs wood, digital vs analog will all present different issues with setups. You have a major head start than most in this hobby, at least you have the skill to scratch build your cars when most don't, so bringing this skiil set to racing will certainly pay well for you. Everyone says tyres are the black art for which this is true, however, brands themselves can fall into this same black arts. Johnno
  8. You have to bring your cars back for tuning. Doors open Warren when this stay at home is removed or relaxed we can get some track time for the cars and yourself Was great putting a face to the name.

    Arvo Warren, I will put the cart before the horse, you have the classes and regs. The main idea behind our racing classes and regs is to keep costs as low as possible for everyone, if you don't have a car that meets the regs, that's ok, don't panic, bring what you want to run, there is a very high probability that you can borrow a class car from myself or some one else, we usually bring two of each car class, main runners and the backup cars, soon as we hear you don't have a class car, someone will offer you their backup car. We like to keep it very informal, relaxed and fun, yes we take the mickey out of each other all in good humour of course, there are times when someone (me with myself) will have the shits due to their cars breaking down, crap grip, or simply just having a bloody bad day Bring along your scratch builds, even if they aren't class cars you can still run them and have fun and learn the different tracks hopefully. You know you have an open door to my track for tuning and testing, all we need now is to get these restrictions lifted so we can get back to group racing. Johnno
  10. Most cars and axles you can use small grub screws. What car so we might be able to offer more things to try
  11. Would the belt be similar to the Tyre Razor? I've got a spare belt here if you want to try it for fit. Armchair sells belts for the Tyre Razor
  12. Hi mate, here are the measurements that you require to buy tyres for your wheels/rims You will be best to use Vernier Calipers
  13. So 11 years on and what is the verdict?
  14. So everything is going great with the .7 release? I've been playing around with it and appears to be all good though I've not yet had a proper race event per say.. Not overly concerned if the reported bug has been cleared more about operability.
  15. Once I provided the debug files Dave was instantly able to see something amiss, bloody fast response times Dave, way to go mate. In testing last night and today the bug appears (for myself at least) even when a race is started with no warmup laps, no items near or under the sensor, I even checked my sensor and gantry alignment with the painted line on the track and they pickup about 5mm into the painted start line so they are aligned very nice. I've even placed the cars 100mm back from the start line and sensors, started the countdown, track power cuts in at which point I waited a full five seconds before moving the car (pushing from behind by hand), still missed the first lap. As for tripping a sensor before race starts, that can't be the issue neither as there is no power to the track, gantry or sensors until the race starts. I've tried to test the .06 beta on a second pc so not to stuff up the racing computer and the .06 beta has failed three times, it installs fine, it loads the database and splines fine, I can select a default installed race profile and the Practice profile, click Start at which point RC errors out and terminates and creates the debug log files, I've even copied the RC configuration from the working RC computer to the test computer following Dave's FAQ on this, which I knows works as I've performed this without issue, same thing, RC errors out, debug files created and terminates. I am going to try installing the full .14 release and then perform the .06 beta install on top to see if that works. Johnno
