Welcome to April over Easter
As many of you will already have seen, SlotRaceShop has the new mobile friendly skin installed. We needed to change the site to a mobile
friendly look, in order to retain Google search indexing. I still prefer the old style for desktop browsing, but life is about compromise.
It came with a few bugs from the creators - actually quite a few. My own web guy has fixed several of them for me, but the menu that came
with it still has some glitches we will sort ourselves. You now use either the HOME or BRANDS buttons to get to the full menu.

FEATURES will take you to most of the links which were previously on the right hand side menu; and INFORMATION takes you to the remainder.

Our April Newsletter is now available for viewing and for download as a PDF file; click the link below.

It is also available as a link under our NEWS section - FEATURES > NEWS
Especially have a read of the tune article to help set up cars for the DTM CLASSIC event we are planning for September in the Hawkes Bay
The DTM Classic - a Slot.it Shootout
under FEATURES > THE DTM CLASSIC


Happy Easter and happy slotting everybody

Hi all

Hard to believe it is May already, and a lot of us will be gathered at Tony's in Nelson this month for the first major event of the year.
If you are going - see you there, if not, I am sure some of us will find a moment to post pictures and video updates on the

NZ Slot Racers facebook page.

I have marked the DTM weekend on my calendar and have an Opel white kit in my possession.

It is a nice little car with a stiff chassis and plenty of pod movement.

I have secured the motor, added plastic washers to the front axle, glued and trued the N22's.
The chassis and bare shell lap my circuit in 5.7seconds but in a very polite way...a very smooth ride.

Paint when the weather improves and I have time.

We have just received our Sideways order, which includes the new BMW 320, a re-stock of the Lancia Stratos 'Alitalia'
- which is now sold out at Sideways; and we have resumed stocking their Pro-speed soft 18 shore 20 x 11 tyres. We have the
new ultra-thin spacers for fine axle/gear adjustment, and have restocked both Raptor motors and extra-hard red pods.

We also received an NSR order today which includes this gorgeous Audi R8 LMS, and have restocked all sizes of tyre we carry

And another month rolls by

August Newsletter here

Following on the speedy departure of Difalco controllers recently, Jim has been busily soldering me up another batch, which should arrive early next week and we will have all 1/32 models in stock, as well as extra "networks" for those who want a hotter response or also do some 1/24th racing.

FOOTNOTE TO THE QUESTION: The writer later discovered that another driver was using a tyre treatment agent which was transferring residue to the track and likely the cause of balling affect on his N22 tyres.


I am struggling with that concept, Mark. Care to expand?

The person who had the problem later found that another driver was using a particularly aggressive chemical product which in fact melts pretty much every kind of rubber tyre and reduces their life markedly.
Does the word "gymnasium" give you a hint. :) ;)

Oops, did it again. Forgot to post the link to our November newsletter, and our December newsletter is also now out.

Jump to here for links to both, new products, and tech articles.
