Slotwings News - LOLA T70 Mk111 GT



LOLA T70
Oulton Park Tourist Trophy Winner 1968
Denny Hulme
Ref; SLW004-01
Retail £44.95


The lovely Lola T70 from FlySlot's Slotwings collection has made a welcome return in the guise of the legend that was Kiwi Denny Hulme's car that he raced at the 1968 Tourist Trophy. The TT held at Oulton Park, was traditionally a race for touring cars but the organizers decided to make the event that year for Group 7 sports cars. The field was littered with what are now desirable classic sports racers including GT40's, Ford P68's, and David Piper's Ferrari 412P which finished in second place, behind Hulmes victorious Lola Chevrolet.

Invite to season's last T-Jet race

The year has passed quickly and we are now almost at the point for the MASCAR race at my place, Saturday June 4th. After that is one remaining SS race at Joey's in July, but the date for that has not been set.


My track is a 4'x8' Ed Bianchi routed track with magnetic braid and Galinko power. The track is small but the action on the track will be fierce! Think Bristol or Martinsville but a road course instead of an oval.


We will have limited Friday night practice from 6pm to 10pm. Track opens Saturday at 8am, with tech at 10:30am. Classes are BeachJet, which means any Fray/ECHORR style car is legal. Full details on that, check the website. We also run a 2.5 min round robin for the MT/XT class. Body rules are anything that reasonably covers the chassis, and fits through the tech block. The Willys Clip Coupe body is fine for this race.


Here is a track pix and directions, also note the new phone number, as we don't have a landline anymore.

Bringing tables and chairs are encouraged, as this race usually attracts more folks than my tables will accommodate.

New Mega G plus !

Hi Fellow racers ! Got a Q, been out of racing for awhile .... how are these new [ So I think ] Mega G plus chassis ? The ones with the closed armature at what looks like a some sort of chip board in front of armature ? Thanks People for your input.:yo::help:

SlotBlog.net

When did arms get shorter and comms more compact?

While I was away I must have missed the memo as I didnt realize what the issue was at first.I couldnt understand why my 27 arm wasnt fitting in a 27 can until I looked at the arms and they had changed.

 

Who did it first?Koford?and around when.

 

Also are the old arms still available off the shelf so to speak?

 

I'm sure it has its advantages but how much and is it anything other than being faster?

 

Anything else I'm forgetting or that you can think of I'd appreciate it.

 

Thanks again

Race results from MVH - 5/24, FK Coupe on the Aristocrat

FK Coupes on the Aristocrat – 5/24/16

 

Some of the MVH Tuesday night regulars have been missing the past couple of weeks as the weather has finally taken a turn for the better, but seven stalwart retro-racers showed up to run their FK Coupes on the American Model Raceways Aristocrat this week. Fortunately Nick Ball (who didn’t race) helped marshal the turns, so four racers were able to run at a time in 4/4 configuration. 

 

Coupes in Tech:

coupes.jpg

 

It was clear early in the race that Ray Lee was the one to beat as he set or tied the most laps in 6 of the 8 heats and logged the fastest lap of the evening.  Richard Payne was the quickest of the rest and set the 2nd fastest lap with Rob Brossman lagging by only a dozen hundredths of a second with the 3rd fastest lap.   

 

At the move from the outer four lanes to the inner four, Ray was leading by a few laps, Richard was in 2nd and Dave Panich held third, trailing by just a lap. Unfortunately, the second set of heats proved to be Richard’s undoing as he fell off the pace.  At the checkered flag it was Ray taking the win by six laps, followed by Dave in 2nd, six laps down.  Peter Lentros claimed the final step on the podium, edging out Richard P in 4th by three laps, while the Aristocrat got the better of Rob Brossman who trailed by 8 laps and had to settle for 5th.  Rich Girvin and Dick Griffin finished out the field. 

 

Finishing Order, laps recorded, best overall lap time:

            1)      Ray Lee                 282      4.588

            2)      Dave Panich          276      4.729  

            3)      Peter Lentros         271      4.711

            4)      Richard Payne       268      4.688

            5)      Rob Brossman       260      4.700

            6)      Rich Girvin             251      5.091

            7)      Dick Griffin             243      5.241

 

Next Week at MVH:

            5/31/16      Can-Am on the Figure 8 (blue)

 

Podium (L to R):  Dave Panich – 2nd Place, Ray Lee – 1st Place, Peter Lentros – 3rd Place

This race was a Good hard race, Frank who we were giving 50 lap a year ago is now winning races.

PC Lap Counter

I am wondering if anyone can give me any info on what kind of lap top and monitor works best while using this system.

I am not new to scx but very new to any lap counting system other than what it comes with.

I have been planning on doing the pc lap counting system for years and am finally able. Very lost on what is needed or works best.

Mini circuito 1,20 x 0,60m

Hola a todos!

Os presento el último proyecto con el que estoy liado.  

Antes de nada, me gustaría deciros que es una idea que hace mucho tiempo que tengo en mente, y que finalmente me he decidido a poner en marcha, no estoy seguro del resultado final que obtendré; pero, vaya! tengo muchas ganas de hacerlo, voy a arriesgarme y a ver que obtenemos... 

Mi intención es dar un paso más con los dioramas que hago e intentar hacerlos jugables... cómo? Haciendo un pequeño circuito de slot que decoraré de forma similar a cómo lo hago en los dioramas... 

La idea parte totalmente de cero y a medida que vaya avanzando ya veremos como soluciono los imprevistos que vayan apareciendo, pero en principio ya tengo pensadas las características del proyecto: 

- El circuito tendrá las siguientes dimensiones: 1,20 x 0,60 m. 

- Tiene que ser portátil; no debe de ser muy pesado para poder manejarlo bien. 

- Dispondrá de una estructura alrededor para que no se caigan los coches. 

- Está misma estructura nos permitirá ponerle una tapa, y así tenerlo protegido cuando no lo usemos. 

- Usaré las piezas que hago en resina para decorar los dioramas, para hacer la decoración.

 

Antes de nada os explico como haré la base del circuito. 

Después de la experiencia que tuve con el otro circuito que tengo, pude comprobar cómo los tableros de madera MDF son muy pesados y por este motivo, descarto hacerlo así en esta ocasión. 

Después de varios años visitando y aprendiendo mucho en este foro de slot y otros nacionales y extranjeros, sobretodo en los subforos de "scratch & building", he comprobado que muchos sloteros habéis experimentado haciendo circuitos con planchas de "Polyester extruido" o "Chovafoam", y me decido por esta opción ya que es un material realmente ligero y manejable. 

Mi intención es hacer una estructura tipo sandwich para la base del circuito. En la parte central pondré la plancha de 30 mm de espesor de Chovafoam, en la parte superior un tablero de madera MDF de 3mm de espesor y en la parte inferior pondré contrachapado de 5mm.

 

La primera idea clara es que un circuito de tan pequeñas dimensiones, solo podrá ser de un carril...

Bien, después de dar muchas vueltas a la cabeza con el recorrido que quiero hacer, intentando buscar el máximo desarrollo de pista; pero teniendo en cuenta además, que quiero tener espacio libre para poder hacer la decoración, obtengo el siguiente trazado:

 

El desarrollo de la pista son 4,36m , que es el máximo que he podido obtener, en un espacio tan reducido.

Además, en el diseño del trazado, he tenido en cuenta que los coches tengan espacio suficiente para poder derrapar en las curvas sin golpearse con las paredes laterales o la decoración que ponga. 

Mi idea es que el resultado final del circuito añadiendo la estructura lateral tenga un aspecto parecido a este;

 

Bien, veremos a ver que sale, ahora toca ponerse manos a la obra con él. Os enseño avances muy pronto.

Salut i Slot!

Lacquer thinner and contact cement don't mix

I purchased some Weldwood Contact Cement and a gallon of standard Kleenstrip lacquer thinner (not the green kind) and proceeded to thin a small amount of cement with the thinner. The cement would not mix with the thinner. I added more lacquer thinner and the cement just moved around like a lava lamp. Shake it up and it would break up into smaller pieces and then come back together in one clump.  After four hours it never dissolved.

 

The MSDS for the Weldwood Contact Cement states it is primarily 30-60% toulene and 7-13% MEK.

 

The Kleenstrip MSDS lists: Acetone <50.0 %, Light aliphatic solvent naphtha (petroleum) <=35.0%, Toluene <=31.5 %, Methanol 

<=35.0 %.

 

The lacquer thinner also wouldn't thin some 3M black weatherstrip adhesive. It acted the same way as the contact cement. The thinner works fine for dipping the donut to mount on the hub as it does re-soften dried cement and makes it slick.

 

What do you use to thin contact cement? Toulene? Xylene? MEK? Acetone? Better lacquer thinner?

 

Thanks,

 

Mrk

Applying decals inside clear bodies

The question "how do I apply decals to the inside of a body" comes up frequently.

 

It used to be easy - just give the link to Tom Andersen's website which contained detailed instructions. But that website is no longer, so instead of having to re-type this every week, here is a tutorial.

 

There are other methods that I'm sure work fine also, but here is mine. This is for acrylic paints only.

 

Materials needed:
- Glazing medium, like Deco Art Americana

- Paintbrush
- Paper towel

 

product_thumb_glazing_medium.jpg

 

One new trick I learned is, decals don't need to soak in a tub of water. If they stay there too long, they float off the backing.  :dash2:

Instead of soaking them, dip them for a few seconds, remove and place on a piece of paper. It will be ready when you are.

 

When the decal is ready to slide off the backing, first brush a light film of the glaze slightly larger than the decal where you plan to place it. Then immediately place the decal against the film and remove the backing.

 

Position it how you want it; you have enough time to do it but if you wait too long it will start to stick. Do as many decals at the same time as you feel comfortable with.

 

Do not worry if some of the liquid runs, it won't affect your paint job. You can dab at runs with a paper towel and wick it up.

 

Also, you can also minimize runs by changing the angle of gravity periodically before it dries.

 

Allow to dry fully, a couple hours or so. Blow drying will accelerate the process but be careful not to overheat anything.

The Glaze is water-soluble so the brush cleans up easily.

 

Apply another coat. In the words of Tom Andersen "You don't want paint seeping under them." I usually use three coats.

Once your final coat is fully dry, you can begin painting. Make your first coat extremely light to seal the edges well.

Questions for Alan or others

Ron and I have just acquired Scale Auto 911 RSRs. The Spur gear slips. Somewhere I read it was OK to cut a flat in the axle. Is this legal for Alan's scale auto rules? Is there an axle that we can buy that is already flatted? We acquired some ProComp 3 tires because we run on a track with mild glue. We want to transfer the wheel inserts from the stock tires to the ProComps but can't figure out how to remove the inserts without breaking. Also, how are they inserted in the ProComps. Thanks for the help

Seals vs manipulators vs I can't read a mic at all...

I have never posted on this site and probably won't again, I do want to make any and all Ohio and Michigan racers very aware of Rob Mason and his manipulation of his own rules to benefit himself in his own OOS series. I got back into slot car racing four or five years ago, friends and I raced regularly at a track in Michigan, met a lot of great guys up there. This year at a final race at an OOS event at Race O' Rama I was DQ'd for an illegal short stack arm. This arm was not a short stack arm. I personally sent the motor to Dan DeBella of Pro Slot to discuss the measurement that Rob Mason came up with, you can see his rules listed in the Facebook post dated 11/8-/15 which state any "arm marked S16D, no outlaw arms", (Ohio Oval Series) Facebook.
 
Rob Mason measured my arm at the race as .470" or .475" range, he then states well we will let it go this time then he references the USRA rules and states the arm has to be .500" long on his cell phone looking it up. I get home and measure the arm myself .4890, it is sent to Dan Debella of Pro Slot and he explains to me the variations in the manufacturing processes and blank thickness and powder coating. Dan measures the arm across two stacks and comes up with .4895" and also states he would not have sacked me for a 1/2 thou out of spec. The arm was maked per Rob's rules, any arm marked S16D, I have attached some pictures and I want to thank Dan DeBella for the free motor he sent and his explanation of the arms. I find it funny that some of the fastest guys who were beating Rob on a consistent and regular basis this season are called out as running illegal seals on motors and banned from the series. I gave him every opportunity to remeasure and reconsider but I guess you can't fix stupid. Someone said it best in one of the posts I did read on here, "Well, he's gotta be cheating cause I am and he's beating me" LMAO. I don't cheat and buddy, you won't manipulate me.

Hello from Washington State

:yo:Just getting into slots. I have an HO Track and am starting a 132 track. Also like to run 124 cars in Tacoma at Scale Racing. I have a picture here of my HO track & cars. Remember I am just getting started. I posted some pictures of 132 stuff on the other sub of The Paddock. Looking forward to getting involved in Western Wash Digital Group.

Hello from Utah

Hey all, newbie to the forums and digital slot racing!

I grew up playing with my dad on his Strombecker slot car track. He lost or sold it somewhere along the way over the past 10 years. Last year I started looking into getting him a new set so we could play again. After a bit of research and some serious thinking I realized he wasn't going to play with it unless I or my kids were there with him. I decided it was better to put a set on my own wish list. ;)

I got a Carrera Digital set for Christmas last year and things rapidly spiraled out of control. Track extension sets and new cars everywhere! It's a good thing I've got a 15' x 45' room in my basement to play. I really enjoy using the track planner and coming up with new layouts every couple weeks to keep things fresh.

My family and I love the whole thing, even my friends that have come over get excited about it. The only real downside is that there doesn't seem to be many other fans in the area.

Aside from slot car racing, I'm an engineer and I make cosplay and movie props as a side business which ends up supporting the slot cars! :yo:

Has anyone tested the new and improved cars ?

Have any of the new Scalextric cars with the "new improvements" mentioned in the blog been released into the wild yet ?

I am anxious to hear about some test results and comparisons to the older models.

Folks in the Gloucester/Cheltenham area of UK

Am going to be making a quick drop in to the UK in June for just a couple of nights and plan a little shopping while I am there. Any good shops in the area for slot cars and parts? Not looking for track stuff at all, just cars, car parts and maybe an adjustable controller.

Any recommendations much appreciated.

Odd's Oracle

Gotta love a woody....

Well, I think so anyway and you ain't never gonna persuade me otherwise.  Yes, we made them in Britain to some extent, but it's America and to an extent that few realise, Canada, where they were so much a part of the marine scene.  In fact I would go further and suggest that Canada actually gave us much finer craft.  They came from the Muskoka Lakes and Thousand Island areas of Ontario.  Ditchburn, Minett-Shields, Peterborough, Duke, Shepherd and, of course, my favourites, Greavette.
A company that so nearly didn't make it, Greavette made some of the most elegant boats in the region.  The Streamliner with its rolled edges to the decks and adaptable interior and the Gentlemens' Racer are two that grabbed me straight away.  Greavette also made the famous oddity, the Dispro or Dippy.  The Disappearing Propeller Boat.  I received a plan, amongst many, from my old boaty chum, Rich, which was merely (mis)named "Excaliber", but had no make name, but I reckoned it looked Greavettish, so I resolved to make a Gents' Racer from it.
This is where we are currently.  I finally, despite a broken bandsaw blade, got the Steamed Pear covering boards and king planks fitted and the engine 'ole in place.
That's a good place to hang it up for a while as we are soon moving to a new place (we hope!)
So I had a crack at making the brass bits that will be plated and fitted at the end of the build.
With that in mind I did the steering bracket this afternoon. It took maybe an hour.  It'll take a lot longer to polish prior to plating!
Eventually it'll be mounted on the transom and cavitation plate.  I intend the steering to actually work via this piece,flimsy though it looks, I couldn't bear beefing it up, "just in case".

This is what I'm trying to make, eventually.
I tested my new Bassett-Lowke motor, 70 years old and newly cleaned up.  Intended for the Greavette, on 13Volts it ran superbly and so noisy that I hope it'll sound like a real boat.  I hate that pathetic little whirring noise most electrics do.  I could not slow it with my finger, so I think a nice big pitch prop is called for here.
