Hi all

I have just joined your forum after being directed to your site by my nephew who has taken up 1/32 scale racing recently in the Sydney basin.

I have been racing slot cars for over 40years now from 1/24 scale during my teenage years & then converting to 1/64 scale some 20 years later.

I have my own 1/64 afx track layout consisting of a 15 mtr road course inside a 7.5 mtr oval course. I am located in Miller near Liverpool & we race once per month.
I also have a friend who has a similar circuit who is located in Earlwood.

We have a group of 5 - 6 blokes who get together for monthly sledging, racing, sledging.....more racing ...& a few cleansing ales.

You are more than welcome to contact me & arrange a visit via my email address - meggs42@optusnet.com.au

I am planning to develop a 1/32 scale track in the future possibly routed?

regards

Terry

Thanks for the replies guys, is there such a thing as a normal slot car addict, please let me know if you find one? :D

Luke is my nephew & has passed on the St Andrews race schedule. Thanks for the invite Colin, I intend to join you on one Saturday night in the not so distant future.

The thing that has impressed me the most about this forum so far , is looking over the various track photos of all AUSLOT members & must say .............IMPRESSIVE layout's guys........ :P

Hopefully one day I will attempt a routed track & emulate some of those skills etc

I will also let you guys know when we are racing at my place next & extend an invite to join us. We mainly race on Friday nights once per month & August meeting is at my mates place in Earlwood tomorrow night.

Hi Colin

Yes, 1/64 scale, afx, lifelike, tyco etc.

We mainly use afx super G Plus chassis with silicone sponge rear tyre set up, independent or fixed "O" ring front end & what ever hard body.

We remove the body mounts, then send the bodies to Gloria Marshall for a weight loss program :D , then lower the bodies on the chassis by re-gluing the body clips back into the body. This all helps to make the things handle better if you get my drift. ;)

Nothing worse than all that weight being in the wrong location......... :angry:
