  1. @mtpanoramaThis car is on my shopping list. I don't think it will be a fast seller so I will eventually get on to add to my U.S. collection. My A9X and XY backorder arrived today so I have to make the pennies spread well now I'm not working.

    Wacky Races

    I'll be getting these. Wacky Races was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid.
  3. @Vinno thanks for the write up it was a great read. Last week I got notified my backorder for both cars has been filled and I should have both cars either today or tomorrow. I think now I have also have all the Torana's and XW,XY, XA, XB & Xc's released. BUT like you I'm hanging for the Slot.it Skyline to arrive.
  4. @VinnoApologies mate gave the credit to the wrong person. I'll blame it on the early morning.
  5. @Sports RacerPendle Slot Racing has a 3D printed chassis that looks pretty trick.
  6. I saw that Alpha race quite a few times. @gazzaFantastic job mate.
  7. @gazzaI'm 6 weeks into retirement and don't know where I had time to fit work in
  8. @VinnoMy focus is the same Aussie cars or cars that raced here.
  9. As @Vinnosaid I use Excel as well. You can add photo's if you want as well. No need to buy or get a fancy program.
  10. @johnno appreciate it big time. I guess a big part of starting this thread was to get a handle of what brands have their strengths in certain categories as well as what strengths some of those "other brands" have. A bit of a learning 101 exercise into each of the brands. As mentioned I was impressed no end when My friend gave me a Scaleauto to play with and pull down. He rated them highly to the point he put them up there with Thunderslot which he considers just behind NSR and above Slot.it My head spins
  11. @Vinnothanks mate. I'll start having a quick browse to see what our friends across the ditch are doing.
  12. @VinnoThanks mate It's a bit like opening a can of worms topic. Thanks for you thoughts as well. Most of the time I get a buzz out of playing with what I put together but now I'd like to go down the rabbit hole a little further. The plan will be join the club and will do as you suggest. I'd like to arm myself with a couple before I get there.

    Different Brands

    I have been playing around with Slot Cars for a while. Most of my spend has been on cars that I love that specific model and not so much the performance of the car. The turn on cars for me have always been the Australian and American Muscle cars either off the shelf cars or buying bare bodies off some very talented people (you know who you are ). Most of the builds have been using HRS2 chassis which for me give me the flexibility it offers as well as "reasonable performance. The plan is get involved in a club and have a play which I briefly did while living in Sydney. Now I'm retired up the coast I'm hoping to join a fairly active club here and now need to start looking at some cars. to join. Currently I have around 130 plus cars mostly Scalextric or Carrera or built because I like that model. Aside from a couple I don't have any shelf queens. Over the last year or so I have tested the water and bought a few cars based on what I read here and elsewhere (thank you). Currently I have a Black Arrow GT3 , MrSlotcar 787B, NSR P68, GT40MkIV & Audi R18 and Slot.it Porsche 956, 962 & Nissan R90. I do have a Policar 412P Ferrari on order (been on order for ages). I don't have any Revo, Scaleauto, Thunderslot, Ninco, Sideways and so on. A friend for example has a few Scaleauto's and they look pretty trick but they don't seem too popular. Is there a rule of thumb for each of the brands as to who makes the best in a specific car category ie Can Am etc ? This is what I need to learn and being limited in funds not want to test the water too much. Cheers Warren
  14. A few months back I got my first Black Arrow. Tried it out on @Johnnotrack a few weeks ago. I was pretty impressed considering all that all that was done was a quick front set up. Will be a nice car when it is properly tuned.
  15. I really want to get some Scaleauto cars. The build and design looks good.
  16. Harry Wise from Home racing world has tone a ton of video's on carrera tuning. Check his youtube channel as well as the HRW website
  17. The 962 looks trick in the Shell livery. I was going to get the 956 with Rothmans livery but last week I ended up buying two NSR's the Martini P68 and the black GT40mk4. Now I'm not working
  18. @mtpanoramaIt was an EL. Until I see the shot quite possibly and more than likely could have been a Mondeo.
