    M2 Allen Keys

    It seems I'm in a permanent pickle when it comes to using this rather insignificant little tool.... Too often I find my Allen key burred over and slipping inside the screw, very frustrating, and although I have to constantly remind myself to be a little gentle I still seem to be having far too many recurring issues, So, my fellow forum friends, I'm reaching out to you to try and find a suitable solution, is there a better one to be had? I presently use NSR replacement tips, I have a couple of burred out SlotIt types here as well(unusable). Any help is much appreciated, Terry
  2. looking good for a full(ish) grid Good stuff
  3. I saw Johnny Harvey race at Westmead Speedway( now Westmead Hospital), must have been around 1964/5 The speedway people loved him, almost as much as Jeff Freeman
  4. Looking at the pics I should explain the idea around my decision to put in a pivot, I was thinking that a little bit of flex would be desirable, although some would argue that these little cars don't respond to that I still wanted to see for myself with this build, The pivot arms can vary in diameter and for this build I used 1.2mm thick piano wire, in hindsight I maybe could have gone down to 1mm diameter, I don't get too much movement in this chassis, certainly not as much as I was hoping for, although the car does run quite nice. For an alternative feel I am in the midst of another build and in this build I will go for a 1mm torsion bar set up.
  5. No problems IM Its a bit mucky, maybe I should have given it a bath before I took the pics!
  6. I originally built this to compete in the 2020 Tasman Proxy series, obviously with all that has happened that didn't happen so with the 2021 series being planned I thought it would be a nice thing to get the car finished, Just a couple of the car..... As in previous years the car features the FF050 motor with 9:24 off set SlotIt inline gears, Pauls tyres all round and all up it weighs in at around 55 grams. Initial testing saw the car lapping around my place at 4.7 or so which although a little off the pace from 2019 still fairly okay, hopefully further tidying up may see the car a tad quicker. Not too sure if this car will front the 2021 grid as I have a Ferrari 158 on the jig and that is now half done, Funny thing that once I got back onto the build I'm all refreshed and looking forward to getting the Ferrari done with a Honda RA271 also planned, Hope you like the pics Terry
  7. The host of Round 5, Eric, would like to enter his RA271 Honda with the number 58 please Lenny. Terry
  8. I know there has been some comments regarding next years Tasman proxy, but can anyone tell me where those postings are? Terry
  9. I'm really keen to see a in line version of this pod, I have too many older Scaley F1 cars here which are in need of this very thing. I'll be keeping an eye out for any further developments Terry
  10. Hi John, Hands up for a XD please, Terry
  11. Sadly for us all, Big Micks' car was super quick, I always looked forward to running Round 4,
  12. I'm in.......someone here had commented "that is the ugliest car I've ever seen" I can post a pic now if thats okay???
  13. Although i have been very fortunate to pick up some much needed spares for these little beauties I still would like to pick up more if I can, So if there is anything out there I would be very interested. Thanks for any help Terry
