Thought it would be easiest to just have one thread with news posts in it from time to time.

Arrived this week are the new Trackmate Racing boards with native USB connection.

No more RS232 to USB cables. Yay.
It is also powered from the USB port, so no external supply is needed.
Sensor cables are now terminated as CAT5 into the board. Anyone wanting to use an older DB25 plug terminated cable with the new board can do so easily with the adapters we supply.

Hello all

We've been a bit quiet the past few weeks. There was good reason for that.

I have been preparing for some NEW PRODUCT RANGES in October.
SO, I am intending to hold a two COMPETITIONS, with prizes from our new product range.
Meanwhile, I have just opened a Twitter account for Slotraceshop New Zealand which you can follow at Slotraceshop
https://twitter.com/SlotraceshopNZ
SO here are the competitions:

1) Guess the new products we are adding to our range - or SUGGEST the new products you would like us to add to our range to improve our "One Stop Shop" status in New Zealand - 3 Winners from best guesses or best ideas by end September. You can email us, or tweet us your thoughts.

And to encourage you to tweet no email -

2) Simply Tweet and follow us on Twitter from now to end of October to enter, and we'll select TEN winners from those who follow Slotraceshop NZ on Twitter between now and end October.

Tweet us with news and pictures from your local club or home racing, and we'll double your entry chances.

ps. To make it easy, we now have a twitter button on the Slotraceshop site.

We are pleased to announce the new NEO controllers from Difalco Design.

All the Difalco quality with just the basic features adds up to an un-matchable price for a 'High-end' controller.

The Difalco Neo DD300 is a high-performance 1:32 controller with many of the same features as the high-end Difalco Genesis controllers at under NZ$200
Posted Image Posted Image
Next up the DD301 adds the functionality of the higher end Difalco controllers with the optional interchangeable 30 band resistor packs which fine tune the feel of the controller for the car or track you are running on.

I have also added a controller comparison chart as a downloadable PDF to the description of all Difalco controllers

Hey all, I would really appreciate some opinion and idea from racers and customers.

Firstly - does anyone know of any Slot Racing shop, or any Raceway or club which has an "App" - for i-Phone, Android, Windows.....

Secondly - If Slotraceshop New Zealand develops an App, what would you like to see included in it - particularly for mobile computing.
Here's a sample layout below, just to seed some ideas.
Posted Image

Second thing is, Difalco have just announced an entry level controller range - AND it is dual polarity.
Our stock is "in the air" already, due at the start of next week.
The entry level DD300 is under AU$200 for a pro-level controller. http://www.slotraces...roducts_id=1994

Yes, there is a white kit.
I better lock those aside for you as I didn't grab a lot of white kits.
Yes, we're carrying parts here. A few aren't going to become available until the cars are finished production, as they are all at the facility in China so I'll get those in next month.
I have/had most of the parts here, but some are common to the Mazda, and I have )quite surprisingly) been selling a few of those already, and some of the small diameter pinions and spurs for - I am only guessing - some scratch builders.
So some I am listed as out of stock, - as either yet to come, or sold, and need to re-stock.

Our monthly parts order arrived this morning.
Included were the new Mobil Porsche, and the new Torque drivers.
These are a big improvement from the first generation tool.
The tip is harder - as many requested, but more significantly, the torque level is adjustable.
Simply flick off the cap at rear of the tool, turn the phillips screw until the driver is ratcheting to the desired tightness.
- And remember to re-insert the cap before you lose it..... :lol:

Our new site is now live.

For those of you on smaller screens, we have a responsive/scalable format site suited to mobile devices.
There are still a few tweaks needed, but if anyone spots something broken - please let me know.
It may just be worth some free goodies with your next order :)
