  1. Great photo's. I wasn't going to get that Torana but now I think I'll hafta. The last two I bought, the Morris and Brock two doors had zero brakes. There is a sweeper onto my main straight and without a word of a lie I'd literally take my finger off the trigger and they would rocket down the straight at undiminished speed. Pulled the motors and hot glued in the 14,000 rpm H & R motor. A few other mods but that absolutely transformed them. Chris.
  2. Really sorry to read that you are going that rubbish, John. Sad to say but I wonder if it's just the nature of the beast, the so called key board warriors. It reminds me of a forum for classic NASCAR I used to lurk on. There was a core of about twenty guys who saw all those fabulous sixties NASCAR race cars up close and personal had so much information and photos and to top it off were fantastic modellers. Then, a bunch of younger guys joined and started arguing with these established members and what I gather they were going through what you are, being bombarded with aggressive messages and e-mails so eventually all the older guys with all that experience and knowledge left the forum. Soon after these newer guys left as well and the forum was just left in tatters. At the end of the day, if those on SF bug you, stuff 'em, just enjoy the hobby your way. Chris.

    Hi, if you go to the 'Search' box on top right and put in Mjk Tyre Selector With a bit of luck that might help. Chris.
  5. That is a great looking Nova, lots of detail has been put into it. Chris.
  6. Nice bit of surgery there! You really exploited those rear wheel bulges, looks terrific. Chris.
  7. I think it looks fabulous. I'm a firm believer in the one metre rule, you did it to be a slot car and so once it's out on the track and racing any faults you think are there will disappear. Well done. Chris.
  8. I dunno, maybe it depends on how many in your race group and how many actually want to do it. Say you ran 4 classes in a night and then ran this Run Whatcha Brung as the final event, the guys who don't want to do it can go home and the guys who do can have a mess around with or without the lap counter on. Or, you could run sub groups within the one class, the fast cars up together, then the next slowest and so on. One of the race groups I'm in were at an impasse about a new class. We ended up using Patto's 1/32 scale FJ Holden shell with either scratchbuilt plastic or any old chassis out of the spares box and what a success! Guys who hadn't done any of that sort of modelling for many years really enjoyed it so much so we started another class, same deal chassis wise but any choice of Patto's body. This has led to a third class using a Pendles plastic chassis which we got landed for about $9 each and any Patto's Aussie muscle car from 1967-80. No sticky tyres just stuff out of your spares bin, cars sliding around, similar performance what a hoot. Sorry to ramble, just home from our 38th wedding anniversary, several beers and a couple of bottles of wine and a great meal. Chris.
  9. You could try having a look at the paint section in auto accessory shop like Repco. The Dupli-Color DST219 Tidal Blue might go close and it's metallic. Chris.
  10. Sorry, just noticed they are out of stock
  11. This one is a little closer to home: https://www.eroma.com.au/decal-inkjet-white/ Hope this helps. Chris.
  12. Scalextric A.C.T run a class for combined Group A and Supertouring. We get a good variety of models and since there has been no racing since March when we resume there will be at least two resin Holdens. That really is a cool looking track. Chris.
  13. Looks great, thanks for all the effort. Chris.
  14. Yeah baby! Now, THAT'S a race car, looks fabulous. Well done, Chris.
  15. I'm a bus driver here and about five weeks ago an older age Chinese lady got on in the city with a heap of full shopping bags. The bus meandered through the 'burbs and arrived at her stop in Hughes. Taking her time to get organised I popped my head around and asked if she wanted a hand, "No, it's ok". As she left I noticed all the bags were full of packs of toilet paper so with a smirk I said "Curry for dinner tonight?" but she just gave me an odd look. Going down to my local Coles to get some fruit bread yesterday I looked but wasn't surprised to see the tissue and toilet paper section empty and I thought of that Chinese lady with her pantry full of toilet paper and she thinking 'Who is smirking now, baldy?' As John Lennon sang "Nobody told me there would be days like these" stay safe, stay happy and stay in touch. Chris.
