Hi David it's a great video, I've taken the liberty of embedding the Youtu.be link so it shows up in forum for you.

David,

 

That's a great build, I have admired your track for a while too and wouldn't mind a small build of my own.

Do you have any links where I could purchase 4WD and/or monster trucks (RTR), my talents & time wouldn't permit building, for a start anyway.

Wouldn't mind having a go at your swing-arm build sometime though, it looks rather easy.


Cheers Grant

Hi ZeGas

 

A while back SCX produced a range of TT slot cars that came with 4WD and a long "drop arm" and are capable of driving over some of the obstacles my track. Like wise the current range of Ninco "Raid" slot cars have 4WD and a drop arm. Scalextric are now producing Monster Mayhem trucks but I have not seen them up close. I do not know if they are fitted with a drop arm and I do not think that they are 4WD.

 

Not sure if you have seen these YouTube clip. In the first one you can spot a standard SCX TT Peugeot and a Buggy taking on my track. In the second clip are some of the Ninco Raid slot cars trying out the truck with the obstacles removed.

 

I intend to make a set of obstacles more suitable for this cars, hence the way I have made my track with interchangeable obstacles.

 

One of the things that I try to get across in the video's is just how easy it is to make your own unique slot car's.

 

Dave

Put together a "easy" track to test the speed comparison of my Ninco, SCX & Scratch Built Off Roaders. The Ninco Hummer was the hardest track to get to do a full lap with out de-slotting. The Ninco vehicles had the edge in shear speed over the SCX cars but did not handle the obstacles nowhere near as well. The Toyota Land Cruiser & Hilux are both still running on the kit supplied 3 volt motor's. Glad to see that the Nissan King Cab & Lunch Box Monster Trucks are up near the front of the field.
