  1. Good to see the track taking shape again in it's new home!
  2. Looking good, your Dad should be happy with them, once you add the CB antenna with a fox tail!

    Need Help

    I started with Ninco track, but went to scalextric, as it was the easiest to get at the time and the surface is closer to the routed track that my club runs on. Ninco track is good, but I advise against it as the company does not seem interest in producing slot car products anymore (They have dropped their digital system a while ago). Carrera and Scalextric appear to be committed to the slot car market. What ever track system decide you use, go to Jaycar and get a bottle of INOX, spray a little on the guides for cleaning the braids and then run on the track spread the INOX around the track. Done regularly it will help keep the rust away (Unless you live near the beach). A wood track may still work out cheaper by the time you work out the cost of the table, track, and track borders. They can be made to be transportable. Phillip.
  4. Not going to happen........
  5. Looks like a fast track. I look forward to the next race at your place!
  6. Wow! A great movie and fantastic tribute in slot car models!
  7. Very nice..... I feel a NSR 917 race night coming up!
  8. Thanks for the information RikoRocket. Shadow_Rusty and myself had a good play with the PL chips and found the data signals very noisy on the oscilloscope, and adding the termination resistors helped clean it up. I have to admit that I have not done high stress testing of the PL chips, so when I build a permanent track, I will take your advise and get a FTDI base RS485 converter.
  9. Hi, I have this issue as well. Use course sand paper folded over in the grove to remove a little of the plastic, this takes a bit of time. Also some guides, including the Scalextric guides, are slightly fatter than Ninco one's. So I use a bench vice to squeeze the guide to make it narrow. It does work! I hope this helps, Phillip.
  10. Looking good Andrew! Can't wait to have a run.
  11. I had an hour playing on this track last night. It is a nice track set up and shows that a good track can be run in a smallish space. Love the squeeze corners at the top.

    For what it's worth, I have the NSR P68 and NSR 917, both with 15K H & R motors and without magnets. The P68 runs rings around the 917.
  13. Store the super glue in the fridge and it will last a very long time, even the cheap home brand glue. I use super glue on my rims and if I have to remove the tire use a little bit of sand paper to clean up an bits of tire still stuck to the rim on the tire truer Tooth picks are the best way to apply the super glue.
