The GT350 Mustang is a Carrera, and was actually a clock...
I bought it from the Dump... lol.
As it was a clock, it didn't have any braids, wires, motor, pinion or crown gear...

Dump as in Rubbish Dump, where people throw away stuff that doesn't fit in a bin.
The rubbish dump's here have a 'recycling' section where they sell items that have been dumped, but are in decent condition...

Occasionally, they have some good stuff there...

i know what a dump is, but why would you throw it away and our dump has a sign saying no scavenging allowed.

I'm sorry, I misunderstood your question...

The person that threw it away probably didn't realise it was a slot car and just thought it was a car clock...
There is a company at our dumps that have the scavenging rights. They have a shop that you can browse through...
It's mostly junk, but sometimes you get a bargain...

Yes well, she has now made a new rule, every dollar spent on cars or track equals a dollar I have to give her...
My hobby has just doubled in price... :(

Made a couple of changes to the Caterham sorry, the 'Lotus 7' today...

First up, I've changed the Scaley 18k motor for a BWA 15k motor...
I used the connector spring from the front of one of my AutoArt Lambo's, and created a new 'tail-shaft' from an old armature...
For the Centre Bearing, I used a piece of the old armature's Comm, and put a piece of brass tubing over that to make up the right thickness...
It currently has a 'standard' 9 tooth pinion, but it dearly needs an 11 tooth pinion...

I also added a little bit of lead,...
Not too bad of an effort for just using scissors and a craft knife...
It's approx. 13g in total...

The BWA motor will not take an 11 tooth pinion. These are best around 2.6:1

The correct gear ratio is dependant on the tyre diameter...
As the Caterham has very small tyres, it needs slightly higher gearing...

The Ninco 550 also runs a 15k motor, that it has an undergeared rollout of 21.7mm
The Caterham on it's standard gearding is massively undergeared with a rollout of 19.5mm
With a 10t pinion, it will be the same as the Ninco at 21.7mm, and with the 11t pinion, it will be about 23mm...

Also, to put rollout into perspective, this same motor used to be in my Truck, with a rollout of 29.5mm, which was definitely a little high...

Have a look at the IPS car specs! Many are using BWA motors with rear tyre diameter around 20m!

The tyres on the Caterham are only 18.5mm...

Rollout = Tyre Diameter * Pi (3.14) * Pinion / Spur
So for 20mm tyres, a 10 tooth pinion would yield better results at a rollout of 23.2mm, which is the same rollout as the 11t pinion with the smaller 18.5mm tyres...

Hmmm, apparently I haven't been updating this thread with my purchases...
Some were Birthday cars, most were under $30, some were as low as $5 each (Even 1 of my Slot-It's), some were actually 'free'...
So, I've about doubled the collection since I last posted... And my boys have gotten a couple each too...

Here's a list of my new cars...
  • Carrera Dodge Charger Daytona
  • Fly Ferrari 512S
  • Fly Lotus Type 78 <---- This is easily my favourite race class...
  • Fly Sisu SuperTruck
  • Fly Venturi 400 LM
  • Ninco Jaguar E-Type
  • Ninco Lotus Exige
  • Ninco Posrche 997 GT3
  • Revell Ford Fairlane <---- It is missing it's interior, but came with a complete slot-it rear end for $10
  • Scalextric Audi TT <---- I've modded this car to have a drop arm to run on the SCX offroad track...
  • Scalextric Ferrari 330 P4
  • Scalextric Holden Commodore
  • Scalextric Holden Commodore
  • Scalextric Lego Metal Alien <--- These are so cool...
  • Scalextric Lego White Skull <--- These are so cool...
  • Scalextric Lotus Type 49
  • Scalextric VW Beetle
  • SCX Aston Martin DBR9
  • SCX Chevrolet Impala SS
  • SCX Chevrolet Impala SS
  • SCX Ferrari 360 GTC
  • SCX Lotus Renault R31
  • SCX McLaren MP4-22
  • SCX Volvo S-60R STCC
  • Slot-It Lancia LC-2
  • Slot-It McLaren F1 GTR
  • Slot-It Porsche 956 KH <---- It is missing it's interior and rear wing, but for $5 I can't really complain...
  • Slotter Ferrari 312PB
  • Team Slot Nissan R390
The Boys cars...
  • Fly Dodge Viper GTS-R
  • Fly Lister Storm
  • Ninco Lotus Exige
  • Scalextric Lamborghini Gallardo <---- Bought in pieces and missing bits, but for $5 + a few bits from the spares box, it was a good buy...
  • Scalextric Nissan GTR <---- Bought in pieces and missing bits, but for $5 + a few bits from the spares box, it was a good buy...
  • Scalextric Ferrari F430 GT <---- Bought in pieces and missing bits, but for $5 + a few bits from the spares box, it was a good buy...

A big thanks to Darren and Peter for most of these...
Oddly enough, I managed to pick up 6 cars for $10 each and 1 car for $5 (Slot-It Porsche) from Cash Convertors...

All in all, not a bad haul for 5 months or so...
I definately have to get some pics of them up soon...

ps. If anyone has a "Slot-It Porsche 956" body/interior/glass or a "Revell Fairlane" interior/glass lying arround doing nothing, please let me know...
