  1. Hi Dave it’s been years since you have been around. Great to see you back on line mate and still looking up slots.

     

    Nice to see some of the original crew dropping in again after all these years.

    Gday Vince, thanks

    I’ve been dropping in occasionally to see what’s happening, family have been hassling me for a few years now to build a track.

    So here I am. Lol

    Have been pretty busy with mountain biking for the last 5 years so not much $$ left for slot cars unfortunately. I

    Now with this virus it seems slots and a few other activities are the only way to go for indoor entertainment.

     

    Well I was starting to get more into the riding again but the virus has stuffed that up for a bit. Also doing 1 to 1 car stuff kept me away from slots but once I am in my new house I should be ok to get the slots going properly and back into the bikes with the move to Wollongong.

    Yeah the has really made a mess of life for the now, hopefully not long till it’s gone ..

    1:1 sounds expensive, I’ve still got the old HZ prem which rarely sees the road now.

  3. Hi Davnic74.

     

    Sounds like you have copper tape sussed now but it can always be sourced from Trademe NZ except perhaps during virus time. $10NZ per roll but no idea of postage. If getting a few rolls postage becomes a non-issue.

     

    Regards Chas Le Breton (charlesx)

    Thanks Chas,

    You wouldn’t believe it but looking through some boxes trying to find hand controls I found 9 rolls... yes 9 rolls.. I have no idea why I have that many..

  4. Excellent Dave - nice to see you again.

     

    Hi to the rest of the clan from me, and I look forward to seeing progress on the build.

    As you may have noticed, Auslot just started a revival a couple of months back.

     

    Just in time to keep all the slottys from going full-crazy during lockdown

     

    Gday Mark

    Thanks, Good to be back.

    The track is going to be a very basic 3 laner, hopefully to help keep the kids occupied during these crazy times.

    I may start a thread on it, I’ve almost forgotten how to build one.. ‍♂️

     


  5. Thanks for that, I was hoping to buy local. I’ll try and find some lead light shops.

     

    EDIT.

    After calling around and many ridiculous prices I Located some rolls at a lead light shop! 😁


  6. Hello all, been a while.. 😁

     

    I’m attempting to build a basic 3 laner for the kids to mess around with whilst we are “at home”.

    The only issue I’m having is sourcing copper tape..

    any help would be greatly appreciated!


  7. Can only echo what's been said above!

    Thanks to Greg and Garry for being the team mechanics (again) and providing an excellent car..

    As Shane said above the Satrday night was fantastic and me personally could have stayed down stairs all night Haha!!

     

    Well done to the Jokers, team NSR and Xtreme.

    It was great to catch up with everyone again and bring on next year!

    On another note I got results of a CT scan done on Friday and I have a fracture in my hand from a mtb stack 2 weeks ago and go into plaster for 6 weeks tomorrow !!

    So if I was a bit irratic or bumped anyone whilst racing I apologise.. Was a bit going on!!


  8. I'd first of all like to thank Mark for one of the most enjoyable comps I have ever had the pleasure to enter.

    I will definately be up for it agasin next year, as I said earlier it has made my watching of the races even more exciting and enjoyable than ever.

     

    My thanks to all who entered, without you therer woud not have been a comp, and there wouldn't have been any thrill in to playing the game.

     

    I will have to keep up to date with all the teams and drivers for next year, and see if I can give you all a run for your money again.

     

    Cheers, and let's bring on next year.

     

    Andrew

     

    Ps: I'll take the Ferrari

     

    Andrew,

    Your Ferrari is on its way to you Express post, hopefully it will be there tomorrow.

    Enjoy!
