  1. Thanks again for the great info! I'm VERY happy to report that I was able to secure an Arduino Uno and some SFH310 T1 3mm IR sensors. I soldered the sensors up to a CAT 4 cable I cut the heads off of (already bundled and nice, thin wire) and the pins on the other side for the Arduino. I repurposed a "newer" old PC (10 years newer!) and reloaded Windows 10, installed the latest RaceCoordinator version, uploaded the RC.io file to the Arduino and we are good to go! Works perfect so far in my testing of about 100 laps. The next task is to completely rebuild or replace my light bridge as it got hammered during the move. Woof! More to come on that.
  2. Well, you made me blush. Just happy I was able to provide some fun things over the years. Thanks again, I'll let you know when I have it running!
  3. Thanks a million for this info. Here I am years later trying to cobble a new system together. I was using an old (20+ years!) parallel cable from the old VRS system with RaceCoordinator. Worked great until the cable was destroyed during our recent move. I don't want a full setup, but could not find the definitive info I was looking for until this thread I'd forgotten about. Awesome info, and I've got the Arduino Uno on the way and some SFH310 photo sensors. I'll let you know how this all goes!
  4. Had a few emails asking if it was finished. I just completed putting mine together last night. Looks pretty darned cool running around the track. I recreated the car more or less as it currently runs in the historic T/A series. Duplicolor white primer, Duplicolor Chrome Yellow, wetsanded and 5 coats of Future before being waxed. I used BelDecal paper and it worked very well - much better than my previous attempts at decals. The fonts are not 100% correct, but when it is sliding past me on it's roof at Warp 3 it won't be noticeable... PCS32 Chassis, SCC insert wheels with my inserts, Piranha 21k motor and 27/9 Slot.it gearing. Runs well enough, but not very competitive - mostly weight distribution with the PCS. I made out-riggers and placed weight as low as I could but may end up doing a brass chassis if I can't get it a little better.
  5. Thanks for the kind comments. I've a blast banging these things around the track thus far! Mopar - the Dart is due this Fall. The four letter word WORK keeps getting in the way.
  6. Chassis: a variation off of the "Stinker" for both with side pans. Worked out fairly well. I soldered up roll bars as well. Motors: Pirahna 21k Wheels: CBB 15x10 Tires: PGT-22166FF Paint: All Duplicolor Rattle Can Decals: Polecat Guide: Slotting + Axles: Slotting + These were lots of fun to build! Neither is remotely perfect. I attempted to use Bare Metal Foil one last time and had issues with adhesion again. I also just suck at it apparently. Either way, they look pretty good and slide nicely around the oval. Of course, I had to run them on the PDR and they look just perfect there as well. I think I need a fleet of these!
  7. I've been working on a few new projects and finally have enough to show. I won't be releasing these until mid-June so I can build inventory, get my photo cars done, etc...but here are the first two: 1970 Duster and 1968 Chevelle! The kits do NOT have mounts so you can build or modify whatever chassis you desire. Kits will come with interior tray and glass. This is the very early stage of the master for this car. No, the Hemi scoop will not be on it. It fits the Scalextric Cougar chassis perfectly if you use a narrow wheel. More to come!
  8. Thank you sir for participating in the auction. Enjoy the build and let me know how it turns out!
  9. Great job folks! Amazing what great folks are in this hobby! Both RMS kits are shipping out to the winners tomorrow. Thanks again, and hopefully this will help some good folks out!
  10. I'm late to the party, but I'd like to donate as well. I'll put up a 510 kit and a 612p kit. Please let me know who to send them to!
  11. Mark, I'm good thanks, just busier than normal it seems. Wouldn't have anything to do with building a new track though...LOL! PDR II Build I have to get back to resins as soon as I get this thing powered up!
  12. Nice work! I did one a few years ago and love it! Chaparral 2D

    New 3 Lane Track

    Fantastic routed track in the making! Really nice work there!
  14. Greg - the track looks fantastic! I like the way the center lane harasses the outside ones! BTW - you need more Mopars.
