I can understand the other manufacturers wanting to protect their share of what is a rather limited market. What I can't understand is why Pioneer seem to be copping a bit of flack from the user end of things.
Computers. They'll never catch on.

Pioneer, I for one are one of many who would prefer for the Pioneer brand of slot cars NOT to go away. The quality of the product speaks for itself, plus the brand looks after the niche' of the classic American muscle car segment of the SC market which is all good from my side of the fence. All Pioneer really needs to worry about is to do some Aussie muscle cars and the future will be set.

Anyway the next slot car I buy will be the Pioneer Camaro so bring it on! B)
Cheers,
Tony.

"Digital is one of the biggest problems the industry is facing. 4 incompatible systems? Barking mad. That has to change or one or more will die off"
It might be a pipe dream, but couldn't they just decide on a chip that they all could use and make and then make their own systems to work with that chip. Then anyone could race their car on a SSD or Nico track or whatever with the same cars? They did it in the train hobby and digital train layouts expolded. This way each manufacturer could still build their own powerbases with whatever bells and whistles they wanted to suit their own track.

China is down to a 2 out of 7 day working week due to power restrictions. If Bob Brown gets his way and dismantles the coal industry I suspect we will never get the 67 Chev :lol:

Come on Jules when's it coming. Im still wanting the PC incorrect Peter Finch Camaro with the Winston livery :) Grew up watching this car going around AIR as a youth. Tastes good just like a cigarette should.......Winston.

Is that power as in energy or power as in "get back to work before I flay your little ass".

If they fail in their plan for world domination via economic means then will they revert to making tanks..... :lol: :lol: :lol:

This week the President of China was here in Birmingham looking at his, sorry our, new MG. Every car has it's own mechanic, that'll push up the cost of rice.

Wet winter. Rice is back on the Aussie crop rotation. Increased rice price is a good thing CfC.

That Winston/Indy Shop Camaro looks awesome! Did it race here or overseas (US, NZ, etc)?

South Aussie driver early to mid 70s. Raced on most tracks around Australia but mostly in SA. Indy speed shop on OG Road, have no idea if the shop still exists.

What rumour you talking about Steve? Those little Legend cars are on the drawing board, going to be tiny though unless Jules applied an NSR 1/32 scale upgrade :lol:

I think the Indy Speed shop was vacated to become a hydroponics shop - more money in supplying goods to those south aussies that grow funny tomatoes than selling car parts or Av gas maybe

That car still exists ,well at least the roof and door panels do, The Jarret Bros had it for a while and built it into a tube frame chassis, last I heard Bob Middleton had it, he used to bring it out for a run occasionally when they still ran sport sedan races at the Mallala state rounds. Haven't seem it for a couple of years.

I have seen the car racing at AIR when I was a lad (some time back when)and as mentioned at Bobs work shop.

The OG Speed Shop still is ! and on OG Road . Good old fashioned speed shop, with no elcheepo seat covers and cabin fresheners.
Len and his wife still going strong. They once helped us with our rail and Leny still keeps in touch with one of my mates now based in the US.

Gets you thinking of what was,
