White glued..NO instructions

So I bought a white Slot-it kit and I am dissapointed. The interior is glued in . Plus there are no instructions. While trying to remove the interior the roof post broke ! I contacted Slot-it via Facebook and the said contact the distributor. The distributor didn't make the car !
I've never ordered a white "kit" any assistance will be appreciated.

I HAD higher expectations from Slot-it !!!

School Club

I teach at a middle school, and administration is making a push for more extracurricular clubs. My room has a nice 1000+ sq. ft. area on low pile carpet... perfect for setting up a temporary layout on the floor. I was thinking a Scaley digital setup would allow 6 students to race while the others marshal and/or work on their cars.

Does anyone have any experience with something like this? Anything I should consider and implement or avoid? I know someone posted about it earlier this year. Any advice would be appreciated, as well as leads to whom I should contact about getting supplies without breaking the bank.

Does Appconnect talk?

I searched for this on the forum but couldn't find anything related.

Does Appconnect offer the sounds and voices?...if not, how is this done? I'm thinling maybe the video was edited.

EDIT: It appears that it does...very cool!

Y seguimos con otro ganador del Montecarlo, en esta ocasión el de la edición de 1989.

Miki Biasion ganó el Rally y, a final de año, también el Campeonato del Muindo. 

Para hacerlo partimos de la resina de Artecnodecals y sus calcas. Las calcas son una autentica pasada.

Para la bandeja de pilotos utilizamos la del Lancia de Scalextric. Como la llanta es una de 5 radios, la taladro para eliminarla.

Y le colocamos una de Team Slot.

Imprimamos y pintamos la carroceria y colocamos las calcas.

El resultado de la rueda en la bandeja no queda mal.

Slot-it C-class on Super Tires

Another GREAT night of racing on Super Tires at Niagara Hobby in Buffalo.

Here is the podium picture.
Can you tell "Cheater Chuck" won ?


Slot-it C-Class running on Super Tires !

Podium pics for tonights race. Great time on a GREAT track at Niagara Hobby. Thanks to the great staff at Niagara Hobby.


What if?

At our racing last night I again found myself delighting in the pleasure of just turning laps with one of my Fly Porsche Carrera 6's and I commented to one of the guys that, if I were forced to have ONE slot car only, this little car would be a serious contender.

OK, so I know we would NEVER allow ourselves to actually be painted into the one-car-only corner, but, if the unthinkable were to happen, which cars would you consider and why? My contenders:

1. Fly Porsche Carrera 6:

I have three of these and they are all just a complete joy. One of these would have to be a strong contender for a number of reasons:

* Sentiment: having seen so many of these race "in the flesh" in their heyday and punching WAY above their weight, these little cars have a special place in my racing memories. And the sound! If you have not heard one of them at full chat you ain't lived yet!
* Pretty: some cars just look right and to me few cars look better than the Carrera 6.
* Sheer pleasure of running them: all three my Carrera 6's are just ridiculously good runners, and this with really only the basics done to them: tyres glued & trued, body float, bushings on the front axle to properly locate the axle, thin spacer on the rear axle to remove slop, 5g of lead just behind the front axle. And they fly! Smooth, quiet, stick to the track like glue. A dead simple little car that turns lap times up there with the absolute best of them: mine can give very nearly any or even the occasional NSR a run for their money on a technical wood track.

Picture of two of my Carrera 6's:

2. Fly Ford GT40

Also a strong contender, and funnily enough for exactly the same reasons as the Porsches! Of all the liveries I have I would probably prefer the red Filipinetti one as the sole keeper.

An example of a handsome Fly GT40:

3. Racer JPS BMW M1

Two reasons: it is the meanest looking car I have and also the fastest! Dropped my personal best lap time and the track lap record by around a tenth of a second a week ago. What's not to like?

4. Racer Gold Leaf Capri

The reasons are simple: even though it is a fantasy livery, this one is just drop-dead gorgeous! And it is very, very fast and smooth.

5. Scaley Ferrari 330 P4

As someone my age that saw these being raced in anger in person, how could this one not be a contender? I have the red #21: I have removed all the body parts from the chassis and glued it to the body to eliminate the unseemly "gaping" when you have body float. rear end and motor, metal wheels, guide. It goes wonderfully, wonderfully well.

The principal consideration is simply that this is one of the most beautiful race cars of all time.

6. Racer resin Ferrari 512S

Another simple reason: it is a beauty! Both the 1:1 car and how Racer has modeled it.

Helps that mine runs rather well as well.

7. Green Peter Sutcliffe #40 Ford GT 40

Strangely enough I have always struggled somewhat to get my GT40's going really well. So this one goes OK but really no better. Yes, they are typically a bit faster than my Fly GT40's, but then with their pedigree one would only expect that.

The reason for this one? Hero worship! Peter Sutcliffe regularly entered cars in the annual South African endurance series in the 60's. Loved his green Jaguar E-type (not included as an option for the one car only because it just does not run well enough!) and really loved his green GT40.

8. A couple of outsiders: Fly Racing pair: BMW M1, Ferrari F40

These rank equal in my mind. Reasons for including these cars is the fact that they are just so much better than I ever would have expected them to be. I did replace the rear wheels with slightly better wheels but other than that these cars are just magnificent runners without a lot of work. I would probably give the nod to the F40 between these two: just a great looking model (much better looking than the version in my eyes)

9. Another outsider: SCX Audi DTM

I totally realise this is an oddball one. But this same "possible contender for my one and only car" went through my mind a month or so ago while I was just turning laps with this car. It was just purring along, not setting any records, the lights looked good, the car looked good and it was just a lot of fun.

10. Honorary mention:

Fly Gunston Lola T70 Mk. III and Gulf Porsche 917. Both of these I have tuned up somewhat: metal wheels, rear end, orange endbell motor plus the normal tuning things.

OK, so these are all my contenders. And I think everybody will readily recognize a bit of a theme here: most of the contenders are cars that I saw racing in real life. Clearly I am a sentimental fool. And there sure are a lot of Fly cars in here.... Racer is rather well represented as well.

But the big question is: which one is The One?

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: my One and Only Slot Car:

Blue #15 Fly Porsche Carrera 6:

Sentiment has won over sheer speed. For its sentimental value, its ability to replicate its 1:1 car's ability to punch above its weight, the classically pretty lines and for sheer fun: this is my One and Only slot car!

Revenge of the Dragster

Dragster vs rescue van, or Revenge of the Dragster . The track ambulance had been consistently beating up on the Dragster which did not hold well with the Dragster crowd. I recently had to steal the stock 14 ohm arms out of both of them for an upcoming race so I installed a 4 ohm Dash arm in the dragster along with some other mods.This woke up the dragster who shut down the Van big time. The Van then got a mean green along with some 15 lb. Nitrous bottles, :lol: and gave a better account for itself. If you look at the 60' the Van is blowing the tires away. So this is not over yet.

Roth's Orbitron in resin

I've got a new project on the workbench that I can't wait to get my teeth into.  

I'm hoping it will end up looking a lot more like:


Than this:



My starting point is a partial resin model of the Orbitron I got several months ago and a MPC chassis that has been kicking around the parts box for more than two years.  I gave up hope that I would stumble across an affordable MPC Jefferies Mantaray body for it.  So I see this as the next best thing!


Here is the starting point.

24h de Dison 2016

Un très beau weekend de passé à Dison pour leur septième 24h avec comme l'année dernière des GT3. Weekend qui commença déjà le vendredi soir avec les premiers essais et surtout un excellent repas couscous prit tous ensemble dans un très belle ambiance. 

Pour cette année, j'espérais que l'équipe de 2015 soit reconduite. Malheureusement, suite à quelques soucis dans une autre équipe, nous avons dut modifier un peu la composition. Un des nôtres parti dépanner cette équipe, une autre ne sachant pas venir le dimanche et un troisième ne roulant pas la nuit. Ce qui nous laissait à deux pour cette fameuse nuit qui fut bien longue et difficile point de vue sommeil, ou plutôt manque de sommeil. Mais finalement tout se passa très bien, avec en plus une voiture McLaren merveilleusement bien préparée par le papa d'une des filles de l'équipe. Avec des relais super bien assuré par tout le monde, fait que nous terminons à une très belle sixième place au classement final. Avec toutefois un (tout petit) regret lorsqu'on voit le nombre de tours nous séparant de la cinquième place. Il n'empêche que c'est notre meilleur classement depuis que nous roulons ensemble dans ces formidables 24h de Dison.

Odd's Oracle

Super Colt or Lawnrider?...

It will, by now, be fairly obvious that I am more gardening than I once was.  Indeed, I wrote a long blog entry about our greenhouse only 2 days ago, but it has not appeared and I can't be arsed to do it again.  Up yours Blogger.

Today, a relatively new acquaintance delivered a petrol mower to me in his lowered, blacked out, re-mapped Transit van.  Don't yer love a lairy pensioner? A score (20 quid) changed hands and we barrowed it round the back for a look.  As far as I could tell, the leaky petrol tap needed replacing and after I'd taken the exhaust off it needed a new gasket.  Together I have shelled out all of 6 quid off ebay!  I await their delivery.  By the weekend, I hope to be mowing our considerable lawns with my 60s Suffolk Super Colt.

And whilst I am I try to find, and will continue to do so,a British Anzani Lawnrider. I'll settle for an Eezimow if I have to, but only as an eventual stablemate for the ultimate mower, previously mentioned.  I mean how could you NOT fall completely for this:-
Be still, my beating heart!
Turns on a sixpence, sounds good and will be the nearest thing to a Frazer-Nash I'll ever own.
