  1. If you have lost the passion, then you may as well sell them. I made my own slotcar selling page on facebook to sell off some of my collection. Sold a few hundred cars over the 2 years on that page. Better than ebay with their ripoff fees. Link your selling facebook page to all the other slotcar pages.
  2. I have had a go of this VR racing. It is a whole new dimension to slotcar racing. Well done Pat, but dont give to many secrets away. This could be the next big thing to hit slotcars.
  3. Nice work Chunda, a lot better than some of the other efforts i have seen. Might get you to build me one.
  4. I think its disappointing when a retailer sells rare cars on Ebay. I rang this particular slot car shop to buy the Mad Max Falcon and was told he was sold out. next thing there are 2 of the Mad Max cars listed on Ebay and selling at double the rrp. Yeah, they can do what they want, but morally its wrong.
  5. Does anybody have any information as to Scalextric doing any more Aussie V8's or are they gone forever.
  6. that track has WOW factor. very nice and great workmanship
  7. I have 1,200 new in the box slotcars. All brands, not just scaley. Plus about 200 used ones. some are doubles to sell or swap.
  8. the cheapest way to get wire for your track is to buy a 20 metre extension cord from Bunnings, cut the plugs off and strip it. its colour coded and heaps cheaper than buying colour coded rolls.

    Only $39.99

    When I owned the Slotcar shop in Canberra, I was amazed at how many husbands hid their new slotcar purchases from "the wife". a favourite saying of my father-in-laws, "if you get enjoyment from something you shouldn't have to justify it".. I wonder what else you do behind your wife's back.
  10. exactly why I don't post here anymore. the most user unfriendly site ever.
  11. Sorry I couldn't reply to you Garry, I have been away with the family. Back I town now, so tell our son to give me a call to come and check it out. ph 0410 507 265 Cheers Steve

  13. does anybody know if NASCAR will be televised on free to air TV this year.
  14. Looks the goods, Now on to the next model.
  15. In my opinion the Torana's have been a huge disappointment. Especially with non magnet racing. I remember the first release was pretty much sold out within days of release. Now, they sit on the shelves for months cuz they're crap. The Falcons are a winner in every respect.
  16. I actually love Ebay, being a collector at heart it makes finding those cars missing from my collection that little bit easier. In saying that, most sellers think their stuff I worth a million bucks. I only ever bid thé amount I'm willing to pay, if I don't win it another one will come along another day.
  17. There aren't any bargains on ebay anymore, or if there is they are few and far between. Everybody thinks and wants a million dollars for what they are trying to sell. Have you picked up a bargain lately??
  18. I tried the face book URL method and I couldn't get it to work. it woudnt allow me to copy and paste the address. any ideas why. cheers steve
  19. great work, I love it when people chop and modify. be proud, you did good.
  20. when you do get around to routing in 2018, don't make the mistake of doing it in your garage. the fine dust gets everywhere. I routed my first track in my garage over 5 years ago and still have the dust in every crevis.
  21. great link, some cool stuff. what decals did you use for the brock torana.
  22. hi all, can anybody tell me if zap glue will fog the plastic windscreens on AMT models. thanks in advance.
  23. The poor retailer probably knows that there will be a backlash from customers at that price.
  24. did you move the other one to bob's already??
  25. you done good again. I think your addicted to track building.
