  1. i was lucky enough to get a good deal and a heap of second hand track, had heaps of r1/2/3 & 4 bends aswell as plenty of 1/4 & 1/3 straights, all in as new condition so very happy there. as for expansion and those pesky insistant gaps that keep appearing no matter how much you adjust the track, wherever there's a gap i throw the factory red clip away and use a cable tie, ha! open up again now you bastard haha as for getting bored flogging other racers, the only other person that uses it is my 8 yr old, I'd of thought that in a town with a population 62k that there'd be atleast some interest, none that I've been able to find as yet.
  2. Wondered the same thing myself. Maybe its something he found that works somehow to make it interesting. I also wonder why people put chicanes and crossovers in, the little wiggly stuff annoys me! don't worry it's gone now :-) I've already made several changes. first pic was intial setup. second one is as it is now. third,is how it looked on the plan, i decided to try it anyway and it worked just fine.
  3. surprisingly, and completely unanticipated it is exactly the same length on both sides.
  4. as for ut driving different, i thought I'd try it going the other direction and wow! makes a huge difference, just seems to flow better and is much more fun to drive, I'm going to turn the start line and lane changes around haha.It's not that i like overpasses i just had an idea of what i wanted in the track in my head and that's what i had to do to achieve it. yes, softyroyal.de i love it haha
  5. very rough temporary setup. I'll drive it for a while and make a few changes before i start on the scenery. i will have to up the voltage but i might try adding a few more power extensions in the mean time. it's not too bad though.
  6. it's operational!!! pics and a vid in the morning.
  7. no i have 2 drills, 2 impact drivers, the 3rd of each i did sell, i have 5 hammers. I'm going to keep it digital. the 3 analog power boards I'll try and sell.
  8. good morning. i have recently purchased more track and have amongst the spares another digital control/power board. i was just wondering if they ever malfunction? or are they pretty reliable? I'm just wondering whether i should keep a spare just incase or sell it.
  9. thanks mate, i wouldn't have thought of setting up temporarily to see how it goes, i will now.
  10. I'd of thought that in a town with a population of 62k that there'd be some interest, doesn't appear to be though.
  11. cheers gents, it is just a private track. Carrera digital 1/24 scale track running 1/32 scale cars.
  12. good morning. I'm from tamworth nsw. I was just wondering if anyone else is around the area? doesn't seem to be any groups or clubs that i can find.
  13. good afternoon. from tamworth nsw. i now have the all the track peices required to build this. [/url] but holy that is a big setup. has anyone ever built a massive track and decided it was too big? Carrera digital 1/32. I'll post pics once it's operational. i still have to finish building the table.
  14. banked curve set turned up yesterdsy. I put it together, added all the red locking clips and went for a lap.
  15. threw it together this evening, waiting on the banked curve set and still heaps of work to do, make bridges, all the barriers around the corners, put all the locking clips in and make a soft barrier around the table edge to stop the cars flying off. table is a bit of a throw together but it literally cost me nothing, all bits of left over building materials that where getting thrown out at work, even the nails and screws. whole setup only owes me $400, very stoked lol.
  16. i would like to here from people who have converted scalextric cars to use on carrera digital 1:32 I'd like to convert some cars and just wondering wether I'm better off trying to swap the bodys or just convert the car. how do the scalextric cars power and handling cimpare to carrera?
  17. good morning. My first decent slot car set was regifted to us from my sister, A carrera digital 1:32 set, 'race duel'. 6.9 meters of track and 2 f1 cars. we played with it for a while but didn't really have the space for it and when our second bub came along it was boxed and forgotten about. Wanting something i could do with my 7 year old i decided to clear a space in the shed and make a table. after having fun for a while the relatively short track became boring, and a bit of a tease with the speed these things go and the amount of accessories available. we don't have a lot of spare cash so a brand new set was not an option so after many weeks spending hours every day trauling classifieds in my spare time, gumtree, ebay, facebook and forum classifieds i finally got hold of a second hand set, 'gt heroes' for $300 posted. very happy now just waiting for it to arrive in the mail. now I'll have 16meters total of track, 6 cars (i bought a 3rd f1 car when the decoder chip died before i learnt you can easily replace the chip) and 5 hand controllers! i orderd a 2/30° banked curve and some power extension cables aswell. i played around on softyroyal.de and designed a track and i can't wait to have a crack at it! I'm in Tamworth nsw. I'll post some pics of the track once it's complete.
