  1. One of the local slot car track owners up here John has really invested some time into 3D printing of slot car bodies.

    You can find his page on Facebook.  NBS 3d Printed Slot Car Bodies, Parts and Accessories

    I am sure if you message John he would be happy to provide some tips on the printers he uses etc. He has filament and resin printers.

    cheers

  2. Hello all

    Acquired another BRM Mustang - was thinking about doing the Brut 33 car. Anyone know what colour green to use?

    On some of the die cast it looks metallic but not sure if it is meant to be metallic or not. Was thinking of using Tamiya dark green or but if I need something metallic then any suggestions would be appreciated.

    thanks

    David


  3. Thanks Mark and Phil

    Someone on Fb suggested it may be a PM2110 controller - he based this assumption on the general appearance and the 10 written top right corner.

    I have emailed Prof Motors to ask them.

    Haven't done anything with the Parma yet. I got these with a lot of cars and parts. There are a 1/32 metal chassis thing with a lexan body included maybe he used it for those cars.

    cheers

  4. Hello all hoping someone may be able to do these controllers for me.

    Think the Parma is a turbo plus I guess with a brake pot..??

    the Professor Motor not sure wish they would put a model number sticker on it somewhere

    thanks

  5. Did you see in the video on their web/Fb page the brief mention of their work on a slightly different BMW 2002 - I was trying to work out if it was the more traditional one (no flares on the wheel arches) or the one like Carrera did.


  6. I really don't think I have ever used Facebook for news so I don't get what all the nonsense is about. I do look at the ABC news site online and if there is something that peeks my interest internationally I go to USA Today or BBC etc but I don't recall ever opening Facebook to check out the new for the day.

    When I use Fb - I message friends or I check out special interest groups eg Historic Racing groups and slot car groups. About the only thing other than that I look at is cute cat videos or people falling off ladders. At the moment Fb thinks I like videos on animal rescues so I keep seeing videos of people pulling a deer out of a lake or a owl stuck in a fence. That will teach me to watch one or two of them.....

    "at one track near Brisbane they appeared to be virtually unheard of or perhaps it was just the N22 tyres. Think they might be racing them now. I know I took my old Schlesser Porsche over the dish and they were most impressed."

    We all own them but we don't race them that often.  We aren't really into racing slot.it cars too many variables with pod setup and motors and magnets. We have raced them on a few tracks but they have low appeal in our group. As a group we run most things fairly stock - if you change wheels or gears they have to be same as what came off etc we don't run N22 tyres - we run MJK /urethanes or stock rubber. One chap put some slot.it rubber tyres on a car for one class and the grip was pretty impressive - so we told him he couldn't race with them next time - cheaper than us all going out and buy the tyres -  LOL

     


  8. I use all over those products. The clay is great a lot better than the stuff I first used which left an oily residue on everything.

    I made my self some of these mould boxes. I have some left over perspex which I used to make a big box for moulding bodies and a smaller box for doing tyre moulds.

    https://www.makeyourownmolds.com/shop/adjust-a-mold-box/

    I also made some boxes out of plastic card and old credit cards - superglued and taped.

    They are great because you can easily and quickly make a mould box of any size. I form the clay around the perimeter to seal the box and stop the silicone escaping. I use an old wall tile for my moulding.

    cheers

  9. "And before anyones asks, no you can't rent space in my storage drawers, and no, they aren't for sale. "

    and there I was reading through the post thinking I will ask for your address to send you a box of cars to put in the drawer :)

    I have no answer - my only suggestion is you have a house elf that likes tuning slot cars - leave a plate of cookies in the drawer if they're gone come morning you have the answer :)

    Biggest frustration with Tracking is seeing how long it takes to go a very short distance.... In this instance, it took the best part of a week to get across Sydney...

    Yep my package went from Virginia - to New York to Hong Kong to Perth a lot quicker than it travelled from Perth to Brisbane.

    But a mate has a better story. His package went from Melbourne to the mail centre in Brisbane (about 10mins from his house) and then on to Mackay - 600km north before heading back to him. One thinks someone put it on the wrong truck. :)

    I  just need to find a 1/24 MKII Cortina now. I see also noted that The Parts Box does a HK Monaro - so will get one of those and do it up as well.

    I also picked up a Cavalier Models HT Monaro - so may look at re-popping and then doing the yellow Beechey Monaro

    cheers
