  1. Yeah, that is a corker, good job. Quite partial to Cobras myself but 1:1 versions are off limits to me so a couple of 1/32 cars suffice. One of mine is a mid-engined Ninco the other a sidewinder and they both are a joy to drive and often on the pointy end podium position.
  2. Crikey, (as my mother used to say) that does look good.
  3. Looking good Mac. Often thought of hacking up a V8 into a ute but thinking about it is as far as I got. Good to see you did it.
  4. I've got the Van Gis SP Tools Falcon same shape and although I've lowered it a bit, it's still got the slightly shaved support posts although no help with your quandary.
  5. Have to agree with the others ..... looking good so far, but wouldn't expect anything less Ross.
  6. I've seen photos on this forum not so long ago of PG's with a red glow. Dunno whose car it was though.
  7. If it were me I'd be picking the closest MJK size to what I wanted and making hubs to suit those. eg 4261 for Scalextric Cortina, 4272 for Scalextric Escort.
  8. Yep, had a couple of those start turning red and go soft and started to crumble. Figured it was a bad batch.
  9. Mine hasn't got pozi drive screws, I just used an allen key to undo them.
  10. Sorry but can't help you with any thoughts concerning an a/w NSR Mosler as I only have a sidewinder version although I would imagine the forum has its fair share of a/w Mosler owners that could chip in with theirs.
  11. Thunderslot is indirectly related to NSR so no surprise to me that a slight angle exists as a sidewinder. To my way of thinking there's not enough angle to call it an anglewinder but I guess there are some pedants out there that would.
  12. My McLaren Elva hasn't been overtightened on the base and the pod pulled by the retaining screw. Maybe they need to add a bit of material where the mounting screw goes through as well to save pulling the pod out of shape.
  13. Going by picture 5 it seems although the tyres are clear of the plinth when the car is screwed down, the mounting screw doesn't need to be tightened quite as much as it has been as the pod is slightly out of shape. Dunno if this is your #5 Rosco but it's there nevertheless.
  14. A Tamiya plastic scriber does the trick for me just gently a little at a time.
  15. Can't comment on a Mosler beater but if you intend to run superfast cars with magnets you might find that the speed that they fall off the track, and they will, is a lot greater and often the damage is too.
  16. Yep, I think Malomay's hit the nail on the head. Sounds familiar.

    Policar 512 Coda Lunga

    Thanks Mark. I had intended to write 'Alpha series' to clarify, but got side-tracked by adding "(ghastly inline chassis)" to describe it. However your description is a lot fuller than mine would/could have been.
  18. Totally different kettle of fish. Scalextric opted to make the XB/C wider than scale by about 3-4mm and the XY/W 2-3mm narrower than scale dims, where there should only been about 1mm difference between the 2 models.
  19. Tired of my Fly Alpha (ghastly inline chassis) 512 Coda Lunga sitting in the drawer doing nothing. The Alpha body is lighter than the regular version and it also has a light-weight tray interior which is great if it's required to undergo a change of chassis. Turns out with minimal work a Policar 330 P4/ 412P chassis is easy to install. The pod side mounting holes line up with the body posts and I had to add a new chassis mount at the front behind the guide that lines up with the front body post. Last night it had its 1st real run and was holding its own against a NSR Ford Mk4 so I'm happy with that and it looks real good hunkered down and going for it.
  20. I recall reading somewhere that Scalextric is going to stop providing most or all replacement parts for their cars. This might have already started. Good luck.
  21. "A full set" Does that mean a full set of 6 to run together or all the Scalextric Bathurst winning cars? There's quite a few - scalextric bathurst winner - Google Search - and probably more than you'll see here. Have fun hunting them out anyway.
  22. OK, so that just takes out each conversation. In stead, when you click on the 'messages' icon, go down to 'go to inbox' at bottom of menu, and then tick the box under each member's avatar and enjoy a bulk delete.
  23. Click on the 'messages' icon at the top right of page, then open a message and click on 'options' at the top right of page, and 'delete conversation' will appear as one of the options.
  24. Sorry, crossed wires there. I was referring to me having a weird driving technique.
  25. Thanks for that, very interesting. The way I drive I don't like much over 50gm at the back axle myself. Must have some weird driving technique.
