  1. Hi, I am heading to Brisbane in a few weeks and thought I might go and see what the shops there have to offer. Apart from Red Racer where else do you recommend I go? Cheers

    Thanks for that

    Power Loss

    Hi, why is it that my digital cars seem to have less power when I am running in analogue mode? Generally they lose about 1 sec per lap when it usually takes about 8 secs to get around. I do not have power boosters, would this eliminate the problem or just take the chip out of them when I want to run in analogue. Thanks Anthony . P.S. I will post some pictures shortly
  4. Thanks 32 coupe, that was the problem.
  5. Thanks for the replies, and I had a bit of a chuckle at Embers response. I am finding that my Scaley slick tyres on my GT cars ( synthetic rubber?) don't tend to like the WD 40 I use to clean the track as they get a film on them that I have to clean after every time I do this. Should I get a tyre cleaner or is there a cheaper way o doing this?
  6. Kalbfellp, I went down to the local slot car track the other day after speaking to an old Go-kart buddy Adrian Bycroft, the other day, he might know your brother? Does he race?
  7. Well have my new track, not much has changed from my existing track, just added an extra section from the main straight ( I am yet to take pictures) but it now runs at about 6.5-7secs per lap pending n which car I am using. Just waiting to afford my second power supply and some more barriers instead of the afx barriers I bought originally to get the most out of it!
  8. Thanks DM, that version looks great! But I am after the original 500. Does anybody make these? P.S the second car is an 850 ;-)
  9. Just wondering what is the best method of tyre longevity for standard tyres?

    Fly Cars

    Have to wait for X-mas to get these beauties....Yes it was a great price from Powerslotcars in the U.S. Could not pass it up at the price! By TLC, what would be the main things I need to worry about for my home track?
  11. The rear axle seems fine, as do the cogs, could it be the shaft from the motor?
  12. Just wondering what is the recommendation for running in new cars?
  13. Cant really understand why they haven't made the Fiat 500 abarth model, it is a much more popular car ( I am biased, I have a 68 model in my garage!)
  14. I remember that concept when it first came out, Renault V10!

    Fly Cars

    Just ordered a few Fly cars from the USA, the ToTip Ferrari F40 and a 250GTO kits, just wondering if anybody has them and how they run on a Scaley track?
  16. I must admit I am the same atm with only the 1 power supply, mainly due to the fact I have a few very tight corners that tend to slow the pacer down ( alho at 50 -75% it makes t a fairly close race ) Pee'd off atm as I seem to have done some damage to the cogs on my gulf Mac 12c by wedgng it into a small barrier and it is now reving like mad but going nowhere! Was my fastest car before this!
  17. Hi guys and girls. Got delivery of my digital track, albeit with only the 1 power supply and it is a lot of fun. So thank you all for you help, it makes a lot more sense to me now that I have played with it.
  18. Will the other lane still work in analogue? I am guessing it will just not give a readout on the screen? Sorry I am new to all this stuff. It does not matter so much as I will be purchasing another pb, my biggest worry that I was asking was whether I can still run the UK pb by just changing the plug and they are 240v like us
  19. So the 1 power supply will only run 3 cars on a single lane? So how does the 4 car APB version in the UK get away with only supplying 1 power supply?
  20. So what everybody is saying is that it would be fine to just change the plug from the UK type with no problems? I realise I would need to by another power source to run 6 cars but can I get away with just 1 to run 4 cars?
  21. Thanks Ember I just started another so feel free to delete that one if you like.
  22. I just realised I put this into the wrong section! Sorry guys
  23. Thanks Matt. Its just that I can get the triple cup game and a 6car power base for about half the price of the digital platinum set. I already have the extra chips I purchased from the USA, its just that have told me that they do not suggest that I just use an adaptor altho they have said it would be my own choice. I am just wondering why they have said this. I realise I would need an extra power supply to run the 6 cars and I will look into getting the Toshiba power supply for the 2nd.
  24. Just wondering what the problems I would face by buying from the UK with the difference of the power points? I am looking at getting a Scalextric 6 car powerbase and a 4 car powerbase set. Is it wise to just use an adaptor for our power points or even replace the UK plug for one of our own?
  25. Hi Neil, it is mag ( I have tried without mags and it is a lot of fun )
