Sorry, regret unable to change handle - - - one thing forum doesn't allow in the software...
Maybe you'll get a new member from Spain to haunt the forum. . sems to be a thing of those who never really left, or at least all the Mike's who never really left anyway.

Yes - I am back.

I didn't plan it this way, but after receiving a number of encouragements from former customers, talking with a couple of European suppliers about our future plans when we return(ed) to NZ; then casting an eye over the slotting landscape back in New Zealand from our home in Spain;
....... I decided to re-open SlotRaceShop.


Note that our actual website address has changed as has our email address.
We are now using the shortened top level domain system available - just www.slotraceshop.nz
Don't use the old saved link, it goes to a domain dead end. Likewise, our new email address is sales@slotraceshop.nz


As I didn't keep a complete website backup when we shut last year; I have rebuilt off a 2014 database clone my web maintenance guy had kept.
That does mean we are missing more than two years of new customer records, sales records and a lot of inventory and web coding. The site looks a bit rough right now, but as resources permit, I will get the appearance into a tidier format.


Right now, I am working on getting products into stock that are most useful for customers.

Some important housekeeping

PLEASE CHECK YOUR DELIVERY ADDRESS and other account details when placing your first order.
Any address and phone number updates after August 2014 are not captured in the site database.
- If you are reading this newsletter ON the website and have changed email address since 2014 you won't be able to log in. Just send me an email to sales@slotraceshop.nz from your new email address and ask me to update it for you on the database. Then you can use your new email as your login.
- If you have your correct email address as your username for logging in, but have forgotten your password, do a password reset, you should get the automatic email within a couple of minutes.

He's talking about the site URL visible in your profile picture :) all other links should now be changed on the forum. I couldn't edit where the old bitly was pointing to, so I had to create a new one and update all the old references - hope I got them all.

Hi Guys,

a bit late for buying yourself a chrissy present, but our consignment of Difalco controllers just arrived.
http://www.slotraces...index&cPath=185

Pat - if you read this, I grabbed spare correct size knobs to fit the 1/4" rheostats if you want to replace that elephant I fitted to your controller.
Just give me a call anytime, we are back in town and just kicking about.

Yep, that is what I was referring too...
Ps. It's still the old one. ��

Oh, and loved this months newsletter... great work once again.

Thanks Rusty, the brain finally kicked into gear, and I have now changed the avatar pic. - You may have to hit refresh to see it.
I had just finished writing car build articles for January and Feb newsletters, when a returning customer asked for help to show his club guys how to glue and true tyres.
Something I'd never done an article on as far as I can tell. . . . . . back to the work bench.....

Here's the funny thing. I have some of the ozzie guys saying these kind words about my newsletter, the shop etc, - but barring a few exceptions; I have no idea of which customer represents each Auslot avatar.
I'll have to start asking when I get orders from across the moat.

- Mind you after that stirring slotsnz's winding up his ozzie cousins this morning they might dry up like the road to Alice . . . . . .

Golly, I never even put our March newsletter link up on site. - So here you go.
March 2018 Newsletter

Or the February one

February 2018 Newsletter

But the main reason for this post is; I finally got off my derrier; dug the lathe out, disassembled and removed what looked like 50 years of swarf from the innards, recalibrated, and made up some router bits with guide pin for rebating track braid.

As I now make them in-house, it is easier to customise the width of bit, the width of the guide pin (3.18mm or 3.5mm), and the length of pin for any special requirements.
Track production supplies, are now fully restored ROUTER BITS

Thanks, sorted now.
I forgot, due to PayPal requiring e-commerce sites to go https, some things need a little tweaking.
