  1. Brumos, Thanks, and congratulations for your podium. Congratulations to all the constructors for making this event a success, the place-getters and to ALL the four drivers who made for a very good day as there were VERY few offs during the whole event. As to the comments on traction, yes the track was VERY different on the day compared to what it normally is and a lot of cars (including mine) were struggling to find grip, so much so that when I was testing on the track a couple of months ago, the car did a 5.7 second lap, with consistent 5.8 second laps. Go figure why !! The next round will be different as this could be considered as a 'home' track for the SA entries. On to the next round. Dennis
  2. Howdy all, I use this 1 pole 12 position rotary switch and add resistors to it. https://www.jaycar.com.au/1-pole-sealed-pcb-rotary/p/SR1210 At the moment I am using this string of resistors. 1 Ohm, 1 ohm, 2.2 ohm , 2.2 ohm , 2.2 ohm , 3.3 ohm , 3.3 ohm , 3.3 ohm , 3.3 ohm , 4.7 ohm and 4.7 ohm This seems to work for me. The positive clicks of the switch makes it easier to change, without looking, while driving !! Dennis

  10. Howdy all, Lemon juice is what was used a long time ago to clean COX mag wheels. There is a place in Lobethal (South Australia) - named The Parts Box that makes a LOT of repo stuff for these cars. have a look in the "slot Car" parts around 2551 , 2552 , 2572 & 2575.....etc did not find screens though.... Web page is 'thepartsbox com ' and does online ordering. Dennis

    Old Bloke

    Howdy Conrod1, welcome aboard. It seems that a lot of us 'Old Blokes' are on this forum. Posting pics. I just found this for another guy. At the top, select 'Forums' then scroll ALL the way to the bottom and select 'Help' Lots of info here, but if you look at 'posting' there is some help for attaching pics under 'attaching' Hope this helps, Dennis
  13. Interesting ! Which 'Mosfet' controller are you building ? Also, I use the single row pins from the Arduino kits from Jaycar to make single inline sockets for resistor modules. Stackable Header set for Arduino - Cat # HM3207
