    Ninco Karts WANTED

    Im after some of the old Ninco karts if anyone has any available new or used, any help will be appreciated, cheers
  2. Thanks to the great help from Gazza to get this track up and running after the big move - Round Six is underway at Mount Salt Panorama Rally X Circuit. Have finished the Raid cars and onto the Historic's but it may be later tonight before I can grab and post results and some pics
  3. The latest Ninco newsletter been released containing a bunch of new cars and accessories. Please note that all prices listed are U.S. only. Click here to view the full newsletter and topic, and let us know what you think.
  4. Hi All, My Name is Todd, I run Todd's Party Hire in Perth. I am looking at setting up a mobile track to hire out for kids birthday parties, corporate team-building etc. My budget is $1500-$2000 I want to start with digital as this would be a new experience for many adults and I can fit more cars on a smaller track. Has anybody tried a digital setup for hire? The analog ones are huge. I am considering using Ninco as they allow up to 8 cars at one, compared with Scalectric's 6. I know Ninco is not as popular here, but is there any reason not to use it? ( I don't need interoperability with other enthusiasts) Would 4 lanes be enough to run 8 cars at once? Or should I go 8 lanes into 6 into 4 into 2 or a combination thereof? I intend on mounting the track on 2 or 3 sections of plywood, each no larger than 1.5x3m, (so i can fit it in my van) with only minor joining required on site. I want to buy 10 cars ( 2 spare) , 8 controllers, transformers and enough track for a decent layout. Would it be more cost effective to buy a master track kit and one starter kit plus the extra controllers/ cars i need? Or one master track kit and several starter kits? How many transformers are required to run 8 cars? What sort of cars should I use? Ninco only, or other brands re-chipped? I don't need to win races or have rare models, just have different styles/ colours with even racing. Durability is also a factor. Would magnets make it more durable/ usable or less? Is there a way to nobble the equipment so small children can play, or adults don't thrash the cars? Finally, can any shop owners out there do me a deal? I can offer sponsorship on my track, so you may gain some customers once I introduce them to the hobby. Thanks for you help, Todd. PS Sorry about re-posting it from the welcome forum, but I wasn't getting anybody familiar with digital replying.
