  1. If I recall correctly most Carrera front stubs are a loose fit in the inner hub and pressed into the bush and then the outer hub is glued to the inner. The long and short of it is it's near impossible to tighten them up without major surgery.
  2. Looking at Armchairs site and comparing my cars side by side, I'd say these would be pretty close. MJK 4292 - 4 x tyres to suit Scalextric BMW Z4 GT3 and others $15.00 OVERALL TYRE ON RIM (A) - 20.0mm OVERALL TYRE WIDTH ON RIM (B) - 9.0mm RIM (C) - 14.5mm RIM WIDTH (D) - 8.3mm OVERALL RIM (E) - 16.2mm STEP WIDTH (F) - 4.8mm
  3. Our scrutineer is a 2lb hammer without any feelings.
  4. Changes were/are good gazza and it went even better than expected. I reckon it'll be reasonably competitive and not at all like taking a knife to a gun fight. Just got to wait for this covid thing to sort itself out in the North Island and not pass it on to us, so us mainlanders can get out of lockdown and get on with life and get back to the track.

    Wide Boy XR3i

    Yep I could live with that. Good stuff. Will keep an eye out for sure.
  6. In my experience O-rings are definitely the way to go. I bought a couple for my home-made truer and they only cost about $2 or $3 each. Plus with one I sanded it down to almost half the thickness so it's more like a V-belt now and I've used this for well over 5 years and the spare is still waiting for its turn. I looked up Blackwoods and there's one in Darwin, if you're anywhere near there, and if you try them you might get lucky. If I recall correctly mine came from them.
  7. Yippee, arrived today and I had time after work to get it ready for slots tonight and a good result that runs well. Gazza's lowering tips (thanks mate), a bit of ballast, Slot.it C1 rears and NSR braid in a somewhat de-wobbled guide and 82gm all up with 47 of those over the rear wheels.
  8. Good bit of 'butchery' gazza. Mines landed in the country so shouldn't be too long and I'll be flogging your butchery tips too.
  9. All the wheel dimensions I've seen are total diameter including centre ridge.
  10. An email today from Armchair tells me one is on its way to NZ.
  11. I'll let one of the guys on standby have my spot thanks. Won't be able to make it.

    Ninco Karts WANTED

    Thanks for that Mobbzee. Not wanting karts but rather another SCX PRO Audi R8 and never thought of looking there.

    Nissan Bluebird

    Yep, I had to hit the 'like' button on that one too.
  14. Somehow I missed this thread and didn't realise I had been included so haven't bothered setting up a car. Being as supercharged is ready to go and there's another waiting in the wings I'll let one of them have my place.
  15. When the chicken crosses the road - YouTube
  16. Going by Caddo's list at the top and what can be done, my only Thunderslot, a McLaren Elva, stock everything other than slightly trued rear tyres and about 10gms lead in the pointy end of the pod. Pod tight and body screws backed off a bit and front axle height adjusted. The only car I've got that comes close is a Policar P4 and I've spent 10 x the amount of time, alloy rear wheels, Ultras, a stronger orange end-bell and different gears to get within 0.2 sex of it.
  17. Another quick FLY. My Lola B98/10 fly 88038 - Google Search is stupidly quick with its bog standard black stripe motor, and it just has NSR Ultras on the standard rear wheels, and a few grams of lead behind a full width front axle added to the mix. It's still got the standard guide and braids too. I tried a Piranha 21.5k motor in it 'cos I thought it'd really fly but it wasn't any faster, just harder to drive.
  18. Looking good gazza, you don't do an FJ front end on the FX do you? I'd pay an arm and a leg to get one ..... or maybe not quite that much.
  19. Yeah, I think I've got a magic draw. Have a good night and win a few races and when I get home put them in the drawer and next time I put some of them on the track they don't go as well or make a lot of noise and go like s**t or don't go. I've taken to using small 'post it notes' of late and sticking it on the car so I remember what needs fixing in what car.
  20. Maybe a bit late thinking about it but just wondering if there is room for another Scalex Old Spice Opel?
  21. It's still easy Chas, pretty much the same way it used to be but I use Postimage instead of photosucket now.
  22. A great pair of cars and good photos too. You've got every reason to be pretty happy with those.
  23. Very tidy job there Ross, something I couldn't summons up the patience to do. Just wondering if you'd thought of mounting the side pans angled slightly up so that only the underside of them would be visible below the sills. Might make the chassis less noticeable if it's of concern especially if you intend to paint it matt black..
  24. Never heard of Peta Credlin 'til now so I had to do the google thing. If her brain's as good as her looks she'd be a keeper.
  25. Home-brand. A Revell Snaptite kit body on a modified Pioneer chassis.
