  1. The anticipation is palpable. The tension mounts Will the foreign cars be able to cut it on Aussie tracks? .. or will they be sent home battered and bruised ?
  2. If you open an S-can can to change components , this causes stress in the tabs that hold the end bell in place. Any scrutineer worth his salt wil be able to spot this with a good magnifying glass. Alan
  3. Paul, The motor in the Megane is a scaleauto sprinter2 SC0025b. Roughly equivalent to the NSR king (purple factory fit motor) except that its power delivery is a little less "grabby" than the NSR, smoother to drive, rpm slightly higher than spec.

  4. See how that kind of screw up happened on my entry to the recent short TR7 rally proxy on slotracer.online Wrong tyres, no traction, painful to watch. DNS the final stage. Ouch! Alan (NonFractal)
  5. Nice breakdown of the cars in initial scrutineering. Test 1 was not a disaster for the Megane. Phew! Looks like the V3 Ortmanns worked reasonably well. Very happy Alan w. (NonFractal)
  6. Read as "does not go around bends"
  7. Shaynus, Typically, the diameter dimension given is the visible rim after tyre is fitted. However, be aware that manufacturers usually don't quote bead/rib height or bead/rib width. Don't assume that a tyre will fit just because it has the diameter and width you are looking for. It is possible to stretch tyres somewhat, but if you use air hubs, a tight tyre will sink into the airwell, ruining the contact patch. Hope this helps. Alan W London
  8. We got nuthin' on the Germans or the Swiss when it comes to timekeeping.
  9. Alexis, Alternatively, your car could be bundled with mine back to the UK. You could pick it up from me next time you visit London slot car club at Wood Green. Alan
  10. The HrS2 based Ninco megane bodied entry from the UK is ready for testing on Tuesday at LSC London I can't find any supplier of yellow dogs in the UK, so by default i will use ortmann urethane. With all of the variations in track surface and temperature, rubber is just too risky. if anyone does know how I can grab some yellowdogs 1404YD in the UK please post a reply. When it comes to tyres, I believe that a first step of "do what everyone else does" is the best way to go. Alan Wilkinson.
  11. Something no one has mentioned. Has the plug on the offending controller been checked? There could be debris or flyaway wire fragments causing problems inside the plug. AlanW
  12. Wayne Lander is Reflexuk on slotforum.com
  13. If Wayne does not take up your offer of a loan of your car for UK testing, Jeremy and I certainly will. Alan
