Good to see Jim finally has his name on it.

May be an image of outdoors and text that says "NISSAN YOKOHAMA MLIY SKAIFE RICHARDS TOOHEYS Winfield Shell YOKOHAMA"

I wanted "Gentleman Jim and some joker called Skaifey". . . .  never mind :)

My only complaint is the wheels are too small. The rest of the car is great and I am well and truely looking forward to smashing it into Forests Elbow in the rain and driving my Dick Johnson Sierra past it.

Not a shining example of sportsmanship from the crowd, but not unexpected I suppose, mob rule and all that :huh:

Probably similar faces at the anti lockdown protests...:P

Back on topic, I've had my name down for this one for months, not too concerned how it performs, very impressed Slot.it chose a bit of Australian history for their range!

I'm sure it will sell like hot cakes! B)

Let's hope the Nanny State don't ruin it, I just realised it is still carrying it's "Any how have a......" branding, must be a European thing for it to be OK

Can't wait to see it in the flesh.

I can’t work it out as some cars come with it and others without it? Even Scalextric have had a car with the Marlboro signage and others without.

Hey Mate, unless it's pure licensing(not sure how that works now you aren't allowed to advertise), It was just one of those things over a coffee this morning where I went, I remember that. It used to be so normal and now it's so khaki. And I do miss those types of livery(but I wish I game them away sooner - would own lots more slot cars), I guess as things get more regulated soon we wont see Jack Daniels, Jimmy Beam or even Tooheys. But I'll take this one as a win for now.

Regards

Mark

Can’t believe what I saw Monsignor Kennedy do at 7:10

I propose a posse to USA and a kangaroo court to convict him of “crimes against tuning”

That's how I used to do my proxy cars before I built my 'steam punk' as you called it, tyre truer. I always wondered why they went better around left hand bends than right handers.

I think he may have been showing how little is needed to get the tyres trued and ready for the track, bit old school, but it works

Just missing glue, any control of the angle, and control of pressure on tyres for tyre overheating, and motor load.......  Its the level of tuning a newbie rug racer would use. I shuddered. Hideous to actually show that to the world.

Actually I admired his nonchalant brushing of the tire debris onto the track.

A true master stroke.

l confess to using the sandpaper sheet on the track method myself except I positioned the car in reverse so it pulls back against the paper.

Who needs a fancy pancy tire lathe?

For a quick rough up of standard tyres I confess to using sandpaper on the track but for a real true up I would throw it on the tyre truer.

And I agree about the brushing of the tyre dust onto the track. Really?

All stock being shipped from Europe, will have the fix applied before dispatch. 
Haven't heard anything about Oz, but I presume Jim is getting ex Italy, so you should be okay.

NZ stock is coming from Italy, so they will have been sorted.
