    Forum Upgrade

    I would like to echo all the comments above. Well done in refreshing the L&F of this forum!
  2. How did you make them?
  3. Nice Mike. I also like your dard background. g
  4. Thanks anyway NimROD to look in to this. I appreciate your time and honest answer. ;-)
  5. hi Nimrod As for the LMP (if from the last three years - Audi, Porsche, Toyota, and some of the privateers of the last couple of years) could be interesting. As for the GT3, I think Scalex and Carrera will take a couple of years. Maybe Scaleauto will beat them...but still if you could look into some of those models would be really great. I am not in a hurry...
  6. NimROD, I am mainly interested in modern GT3 cars that no one else makes. For instance, Bentley GT3 MarkII (2019), Lexus RC F gt3, Porsche 911 GT3 R (2019), Nissan GT-R Nismo (2019), Acura/Honda NSX GT3, McLaren 650S. GT3. Would you able to find 3d files for these cars for free, and to print and ship to NZ? I would love to set up a 3d printing shop here in auckland but at the moment time is at premium.
  7. Hello stranger. - Oh the ferrite men I have thrown away........ Well knowing you want them in particular, I will start a collection. I haven't fully decided on the light loom in my BTCC, but I'll start putting things aside, and anyone else in club with same can add to the heap if they wish. BTW - heading back to the other hemisphere later this year for a holiday. Looks like we will hang our hats in the top of Italia a few days. Not sure if we'll make it down to Reggio this time or not. Depends on the trains from Peschiera. Yet to check that out poor FM to be throw away like that ;-) I have a new address...moved a couple of months ago but I have not still managed to setup the track properly. Actually I have not done anything slot related for ages...
  8. folks, if you are removing the light looms and the ferrite men (the capacitors+ferrite beads soldered to the motor terminals and guide) from these cars (scalextric btcc), please do not throw them away...instead send them to a nice new home (mine of course ;-)).
  9. That is why we share information. Let me know if I can help.
  10. Sure, it is my pleasure to help you understand better the level of quality and features of slot.it products. Inspirational I would say. As for posting on Slot Forum, why, MrFlippant already cleared this up for you: https://www.slotforum.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=180274 Anyway, when I will decide I want my account re-opened on Slot Forum, I will post some additional information for you there as well.
  11. Slotspeed, the holding down of the lc button of a carrera controller for ID 4 is when one wants to use a car chipped with a standard oxigen chip paired to an oxigen controller. Such a car will be changing lanes on carrera lane changers but the communication between the car and the controller is not via the standard carrera protocol. If you want to read a bit more have a look here: https://www.slotforum.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=156170&hl=carrera2oxigen The chip C is a completely different beast in that respect as the video shows (thanks to greg [mr flippant] for the great video) and is truly compatible.
  12. See the video from minute 6: the car has a slot.it digital C chip. Once the chip is programmed with the Carrera firmware through the phone app it is controlled by a standard carrera controller and can count laps and change lanes...it is all there in the video. I would say that is as compatible as it can get...one chip to rule them all.
  13. I believe the C-chip behaves as an OEM chip. Have a look here:
  14. I agree with munter here and you have proven that with your design. Been there and done that: usually when one starts in this hobby has the tendency to pack as much track as possible. it took me a while to realise that flow is more important than track length. Avoid to have too many layers and only have one overpass at most if you want to equal lane length.
  15. nice track there. very nice flow and very creative with the 4th lane to be used as borders.
