  1. They look fantastic. Love the oval!
  2. Hi Chas, I got the strip in a kit from a fella called Luf and has the webpage Oldslotracer. Got a feeling he doesn't do the strip anymore but there is a link on his page to the person that now does.
  3. Went for 75mm to stop myself from blowing a whole lot of money on 1:24
  4. Thanks for the comments everyone. Been having heaps of fun building it. Was planning on putting the drivers stations beside each other along the length of the track. Roughly a metre or metre and a half per person. I'll give the end positions some thought though thanks.
  5. Hello! I'm having a go at a 3 laner in a narrow space. Track is gonna be up to 1.2m wide and about 7m long. Want a fairly easy track to drive to encourage close racing and not too many deslots as I'm lazy and don't want to get off my chair too often. Also got a couple of young sons so easy is good. Did a bit of research on the 1.2m width with the three lanes and it seems like the inside of the two 180 degree corners should be OK to drive. See what happens! Contemplated a squeeze section but ended up keeping it simple. I've been going for about 2 months so there are a few pics below. The space Framework Blank canvas Routing Routing done Elevations and banking (and imaginary driving!) Still got more elevations etc to do then move onto getting some side supports happening then paint.
  6. Thanks heaps Gazza. I'll try and get my head around it
  7. Hello all, I'm getting an itch to build a track again and am thinking of a single lane track with a reversing loop at each end for something different. Does anyone have a diagram on how to wire up the reversing loops? The topic has been covered extensively in the past on the forum but due to photo bucket problems the pics are not loading. Much thanks for any help! Andrew

    Hi Capri-corn, 7 and 10 would give you a run for your money I bet. Mine are 3 and 7. The 3 year old gets the fastest car and at lower voltages has got the hang of slowing for corners. Lets just say I don't need much handicapping in comparison to the 7 year old

    Not much point to this post really. Just stoked to be enjoying slot cars again. Haven't really done anything with slot cars for about 9 months. Last Christmas I had heaps of family over and we raced and raced and raced. Then everyone left and it was back to me and my young boys again. It was still fun but just wasn't the same in terms of excitement. Then just this week the bug has bitten. Got the track wiped down, cars tidied up, and have been using the track heaps again! There is about 5 years between my boys so variable voltage to the different lanes is great for handicapping, allowing us to do similar lap times. Must have done 20 ten lap races this morning. Final race was brilliant. Start: Half way through the final lap (looks staged I know): Then flat out from there for a really close finish. One happy dad and two happy boys Anyways, thanks for reading. Just good to be able to share my refound enthusiasm with others that enjoy the hobby!
  13. I didn't realise there would be so many options. Something that tracked how much throttle you used and therefore penalised wheel spin was what I was originally thinking. Liking the simplicity of fuel usage just running off lap times though. Your logathrimic idea is genius Shadow_Rusty. That would provide some great incentive and strategies. You should patent it!
