    NSR PORSCHE 917/10K

    they are quite a big car and very wide. Got t-slot and 908 running good. ive got weight in pod and some on the side, i don't really want to load it up with tonnes of weight but maybe ill have to play around a bit with weight setup
  3. yep seen the FB photos, some great looking cars. Love the first livery

    NSR PORSCHE 917/10K

    got mine tuned, is tailey compared to my mclaren and 908. got most of the pod covered in lead. Wonder if i should put some weight up near the guide ?
  5. Bump for this topic. I only got the sideways lambo, but seen the M6 runs quite good. Due to funds, am considering a ford GTE chassis body when they release it. Im guessing from a marketing strategy they will do what they did with the lambo. White kit first, then liveries. Body and chassis next, bit more of a wait then the hard chassis we wood racers like......... Any more tips on sideways GT tuning ?
  6. Good idea thanks for reply. Yes, it might be more of different tracks and different cars. I don't race heaps regularly enough to see this ongoing problem might take a while to work out. Ill try more controllers and different tracks to try and work it out. Pulled my controller apart last night and cleaned the brake pot, will see if its any better next time out..
  7. 5k Ohm Linear (B) Single Gang 24mm Potentiometer CAT.NO:RP3508 With imperial standard shaft & bushings made to our rigid engineering specifications. The potentiometers are full size - 24mm diameter types . Power rating is 0.5W max. They have genuine 6.35mm (1/4) shafts with a flat machined 25% of the diameter for grubscrews or interference fit knob mounting. The shaft is a generous 38mm long. The bush is a 3/8 32 T.H.D. type which we believe is necessary for good fixing to a panel. Another important feature of the pots is their PCB mount capability. The pins are rigidly mounted on phenolic with the centre pin offset from the two outer terminals. When soldered into a PCB, the pot is quite rigidly held on its own. Double gangpots are held in 6 places and require no extra mechanical mounting assistance. The pins are large enough to terminate screened cable, etc., if the job requires hard wiring. An engineering drawing appears below. You may safely use it to design PCB artwork etc., as we have standardised this design.Value5K
  8. 5k Ohm Linear (B) Single Gang 16mm Potentiometer CAT.NO:RP7508 These pots have imperial standard shaft.- Shaft is 1/4 D type (30% of shaft has been removed for flat), so they suit all our knob range.- Shaft length is 30mm, so there is plenty there if you need more length.- Power rating Linear 0.2W and Log 0.1W.Value5K

  10. Thanks running stock revo it was struggling. Also slot.it red flat AW12-28 and 22 shark 13-32 thanks
  11. Thanks for the replies, that slot.it controller looks good, but heard they are hard to work on and repair ? I just don't have enough brakes on certain motors, including revo. Not sure if i didn't notice before and its gotten gradually worse. I put the brakes on full and it just doesn't stop in time. Still got decent brakes on my thunderslot. Put brakes on min or half and its even worse. Was looking at getting this brake pot ? https://www.professormotor.com/product-p/pmtr2039.htm
  12. Hi, Relatively new to hobby, i haven't done a brake pot upgrade before. Is there much to it ? I am struggling with brakes on my Professor Motor controller with 24 scale cars and more powerful motors. The brake pot is marked 1417. What sort of new part would you recommend and is there much to fitting it ? thanks
  13. would they fit a sideways chassis ?
  14. Hi, Was looking at Printing my own waterslide decals. Only have a cheap black and white printer so was looking for suggestions on where to go to get some print offs. Was thinking Office Works ? Not sure how much a local printer would charge for a couple of one off prints. Only new to this but read I would need a printer that does white ink, spoke to office works and from what i could tell they did not have this option. Is there different quality water slide decal sheets ? Any advice would be great ? also templates for sponsors and numbers etc thanks
  15. How close would the Sideways Mustang be to this ?
  16. Those maseratis are huge in real life. Was much larger than my slot.it mclaren lmp which is not exactly small. I wonder if the Skyline GTR will be very similar to the maserati
  17. Thanks for sharing. i have a 25 shark in mine (club rules) in my lambo. I did play around with weight setup. I have front similar to you, the rear i found the weight worked better having some also on the chassis just in front of motor. Body screws i love the 7mm sloting plus screws
  18. Not sure how big your track is but if its a home track i think it might be too small for the mosler AW. They are very powerful and usually excel on bigger wooden tracks. i would stick to your classic GT SW for good handling - nsr 917, 908 p68, gt40, thunderslot, slot.it gt40, alfa can am, policar 330 etc would all be good. Sideways group 5 usually you can get cheap for $60-70 - excellent value for money - brace the rear up
  19. I had the MR mclaren gulf. Best looking car i ever had, was a nightmare to setup properly. Would not buy again
  20. Damn after being happy with my sideways lambo i told myself i wasn't going to get the bmw. To me it looked a bit top heavy and not as sleek as the lambo, but now y9ou reckon it might be quicker. Had my heart set on the ferrari 458 but looks like thats not happening. Mclaren is my all time favourite car so that will be a no brainer for me come purchase time. Expectations are sky high for the mclaren, my Lambo usually nabs me a podium spot at my local club racing
  21. Such a nice car, was really tempted to get it myself. So many nice cars out there these days
  22. Thanks for the reply. I been playing around and setting up my mclaren. I don't have a track or much spare time so cars can take me 12+ months to tune and experiment with. By then a new model comes out !! Things i didn't like about my thunderslot. Chassis and pod are way too soft. If im paying $120 for a car i don't want to have to pay another $20. Front rims and tyres not likey, bugger to keep on and true. Fronts are way too hard to true properly. I didn't really like the allen key screws. Normal screws its easy to turn 1/4 turn here and there. Ive got a nice 908 which goes well, ill stick with playing with the thunderslot to see how it compares. At the moment its about 0.1-0.2 off, not smooth around corners so thats down to my tuning. Ive got the rear half of the pod with weight and a bit more weight behind front axle. Any other tips on how loose the motor pod and body should be ? thanks
  23. Can someone tell me the difference between a "stiff" and a "hard" thunderslot chassis ?
