  1. hi all, SCX in their infinate wisdom have decided to use yet another motor. have you bought any new SCX car with the new RK motor in it. ie the new Mercedes and Bass nascar. whats your thoughts on speed compared to the old RX-42B. Im a bit over all the motors they use and the inconsistancy in performance. You cant even change the RK motor for an RX because the pod is also different. Not to mention the motor and pod are not offered as a spare part. (as yet) cheers, steve

    hi, just came across your track thread. WOW. absolutely awesome. great job on everything you have done. especially appreciate your progress pics. i have built 2x8 laners and 1x6 laner and know how much work is involved. well done. cheers, steve
  3. hi all, thanks for the kind words. slotbaker, they perform around the same as BRM 1:24 scale cars. mobbzee,yep, i know they need drivers, just dont have any at the moment. i have some more models on the "to do" list most shops sell MJK tyres but not many sell MJK's other lines. its a shame as they are great australian made, quality products to me, their wheels in both scales are much better than the imports. try this link for their catalogue. http://www.mjkeng.com/ cheers, steve
  4. sorry will try another way to uplaod pics.
  5. Never tried my hand at building slotars from plastic models. But gave it a try and now am hooked. Using the aussie made MJK chassis and running gear. see pics below. http://i1107.photobucket.com/albums/h390/slotracer22/IMG_1076.jpg
  6. no chassis restrictions. what ever you can get to fit your contraption.
  7. no speed rules at all. height restricted to 90mm. originality is the what we are looking for.
  8. an excited john holmes wouldnt fit under the bridge either.
  9. great job fellas. nothing like painting up your own cars. i have done a few nascars too. if i remember, i will post some pics thursday. steve
  10. hi embs, as long as it can do 5 laps under its own power, you can build whatever with whatever.
  11. For a bit of fun next March, we are holding a "build a slotcar from something" competition at way2fast in Canberra. Things like a cordless phone, toilet roll, coffee mug, beer can, etc, what ever you can turn into a slotcar. If you get my drift. It would have to be around the size of 1:32 - 1:24 scale. No more than 90mm tall. Must be able to do 5 laps around the commercial 8 lane track without falling to pieces. There will be 4 cash prizes up for grabs. $100 for most original idea. $25 each for the 3 runners up. Open to allcommers. Free to enter, but if you want your contraption back you must provide funds for return postage. C'mon, get your thinking caps on and join the fun. Photo's will be posted after the competition finishes. More information will be posted at www.way2fast.com.au by the end of November. Cheers, Steve.
  12. if anybody wants a ford or holden ute, i have a few of each breed i want to offload. pm me if interested.
  13. yep, go to www.way2fast.com.au click on JDRF Enduro tab. the winners did over 4,000 laps. equivilent to over 100 klms in real terms. cheers, steve
  14. hi all, i have read most of the post regarding removal of paint and tampo's on off the shelf slotcars. most seem to rub back with wet & dry or soak in caustic etc. has anybody tried using an ultrasonic cleaner and prepsol. is it a safe way of removing paint, tampo's etc for repaints. cheers, steve.
  15. oops, typo. delete corvette's. should have read camaro.
