Hi Roland

This race is only for Camaro's & mustang's and may be the next trans am race will be a non magnet race with the vetts then, I keep you posted.

Regards Bo
ok, thanks, for now I'll do some testing to see how the Vette's stack up with the button magnet.

Even tho I read elsewhere in the forum that weight works better, magnets up front might suit most punters as they're so easy to fit...
Cheers for now

Roland

heyo,

i'd like to join in aswell,

on the modification point (sorry this is probably trivial) but i want to change the front lights from the dull yellow to a nice xenon white on my mustang is this an illegal mod?

An unmodified car is like a blank sheet of paper, aching to be drawn on.

Ren's 3 lane routed track with analogue pits and 2 car sudden death.

Great to see another entry. We will pin it to the front page over the next day or two with all the details. There are more prizes still to be announced.

On the lights. I cant see a problem changing the lights but the cars will be scruitinered so keep this in mind so you are careful removing material etc. We don't want to start people modifying as it will make the scruitinering process longer.

This looks like it's going to be a fun race. Last night at the Wilmot races I tried out a Mustang that I have. All I did was take out the bar magnet, fit the button one and put it on for a run. Didn't even bother to true the tyres.

After a few laps of trying to get used to driving a magnet car, it became a pleasure to drive and was turning some pretty decent laps as well. A couple of the other lads had them too and some close and spirited play-racing was had.

If last night's experiment is anything to go by, it will be a great event.

:D :blink: ;) If this race is being held on Sunday 25 Sept then I can make it!!! Now that would be very interesting, there are one or two names that frequent this list that I would very much like to put a Mug on. Of course I may regret that... ;) However, when I get my Butt kicked I will just Skulk back to Queanbeyan and sob quietly into my Whisky. ;)

I had a short test at Armchair Racer yesterday with my Mustang and the cars are very suited to the Button magnet running. I only did around ten laps and was doing 6.9 second laps on the white lane which is second from the outside. There are probably a couple more tenths to come once in the groove with the car but it is shaping up to be a great race.

As a comparison I also ran my Slotit Audi with NC6 Crusher motor and no magnet. I had that down to 6.5 seconds.

Bo and myself also dropped into Slot Shop last night to have a bit of fun on Rolands Artin track. While running F1 cars with no magnet can be a bit dangerous the Scalextric Camaro's and Mustangs were awesome. The track is so smooth to drive on all you need to worry about was the speed you hit the overpass at. That actually made it more fun as you could try to get the car airbourne coming down the hump.

The open class cars like the Slotit Audis and Bo's Fly Racing Lola run very well. The track has surprising grip for all brands of tyre. Also being hard plastic the track doesn't sag between the bracing underneath.

I have taken a picture of the two Ninco magnets compared. The magnet we are using for this race is the 2mm magnet on the right. The large magnet is the one fitted to Ninco cars as they come and is 6mm thick. The 2mm is available as a spre part and is the same as the Scalextric Sport magnet fitted to sedans. It is hard to get the Scalextric Sport magnets unless you have a Sport car.

The magnet as fitted to a Mustang Chassis.

Jamie

I didn't want to say Al because he may think we have one of his old girlfriends there for him.

If you stay away you will miss the great setup tips for Open Sedans and Pre 72 Sports cars. If we have races like that Open Sports heat where we finished with your car on top of mine the racing will be close.

Pre 72 sports I think I will not worry too much about but it will be time to debut my Mika Hakkinen Mercedes CLK DTM in Open Sedans.
