    Slots of course, "retired" squash fanatic, armchair motor racing devotee. I follow most oval ball games.
    Nothing better than a gang of friends on the patio, BBQ stacked with fresh seafood and other tasties, and a glass of good vino.

  1. Been a long time since we had any front page news update, so here is something slightly drool-worthy. A new model, and in a rather pretty livery. These are due sometime in November from them up in Reggio Emelia. It may not rival the local Lambrusco and Parmigiano Reggiano - what does unless it is the real aged Balsamic from down the road in Modena, but pretty nice anyway. I didn't even mention the bolognese sauce, parma ham, grana padano, provolone, pecorino...... oh sorry, slot cars.... It's a Datsun, a GT-R BRN32 Datsun - to be precise This particular livery was the winner of the Macau Guia Touring Car race 1990. It is fitted with the same drive train as the DTM Touring cars, and is designed to compete against them on the slot track. Hopefully Slot.it will eventually release the BMW M3 of the era, which model competed in both DTM and at Macau 1989 to 1992 and other Asian Touring car rounds. From 1991 the Mercedes 190e already released by Slot.it competed in the same Asian race series. …. I hope we can all see where this might be leading. [No I don’t know anything, just hoping] Two more liveries of this model were announced at Nuremburg, roll on the Nissans Chassis: Podded Motor: Slot.it V12/4 21,000rpm 150g*cm 7.9 watts @12V (MX15) mounted as Inline Axle & Gears - 2.38mm (3/32nd) Gearing: Crown 28t - Pinion 9t brass Has adjustable height front axle - this requires optional M2.0 Hex screws not supplied with car Hubs: 15.8mm x 8.3mm - plastic front, alloy rear Tyres front and rear: Product code PT1228C1 M2 allen key under box for rear hubs and for optional screw for front axle adjustment SSD Upgradable: Yes, use Slot.it chip SP15b Meanwhile my diet is ruined, off to the refrigerator.

    Better get the roof on that pit garage, it's going to rain later in the week Looking good there, I like the way you have curved flow, not just straights up the back

    I like what I'm reading. Would really like to build one of these for our Oz Touring Car class, but at the moment the Falcoooooon XB and XC are untouchable. The 4 Door I built a few years ago would fall over on it's side at first sight of an approaching corner

    You would find that if you were actually doing dark driving, that you quickly adapt - both with eyes adjusting to low light levels, AND simply to driving a section with limited light. So just give it a go sometime, you will likely find it works out just fine
  5. Ahh you drove like crap Richard, last in every heat...... Almost like you never got off the start line.... BTW folks. I expect to be away this Thursday, so I won't be able to host.
  6. It just happens that GI25-bz and GI27-bz are out of stock at Slot.it right now. But blink again, and in a month or two they will undoubtedly be back in stock. With around 1,200 stock lines in their range, there are always going to be a few stock-outs as you try and manage things well. There is one spur GS1833 that is out of stock, other than that, so far as I know, all crowns, spurs and pinions are in stock. You could always shell out a little more, and use a modular crown + stopper for 5.5mm or 6mm pinion - They come in 24, 25, 26, or 27 teeth.
  7. Marty did his first nerf, he's coming along nicely. By the time Mac shows his face, we should have him in "full Wilson" mode........
  8. I just had UPS from Canada in 6 days, and 20lb boxes from DSA (Divided States of America) in 27 days. The 20lb boxes were about a week slower than pre-covid, that's not too bad given the severe lack of flights. I am repeating the same orders this week, plus a 5lb box from a different part of DSA, so we'll see what happens next month. You have to give up going into the shop mate. Do it online. - I did 4 of between 80 and 150 grams a couple of weeks back, same price on all of them. $10.39 without discount. I get a 5% discount, so up to 200 grams is $9.87
  9. It's not the total numbers, is the number visible without having to scroll that is key for us Gary. This one has 20 which is more than enough, but if we have everyone there, I still have to scroll. When I get time I am going to hack the header screen, shorten it, and make more space for driver results lines.
  10. I somehow misplaced my custom Race Results screen, so I knocked this one up today. It could still be better, but at least shows more than a handful of drivers at once. When I get inspired I will do some more work..... But if anyone out there has my original custom screens - or some better ones, I would love to know.
  11. The LMP2 project was pushed back to 2021 due to the effects of Covid on everything commercial.
  12. I imagine that spare chassis are run when production of a new livery takes place. You cannot fire up an injection mould for just a few units, or few hundred units. Sometimes parts run out, and new liveries will be upon their perception of demand. I think it is no more complicated than that - just speaking generally from my knowledge of production runs in other product sectors.
