Low Profile LED light kits

Real quick and brief-

Ordered several of these kits both in cool and warm white. Had my first car wired up in about and hour (overall minus my lack of electrical prowess).

REALLY impressed with these kits. Although I thought the white leds would have a bulb like characteristic like the rear reds, they still made for fairly easy install.

The wire is really thin, which is great when dealing with intricate interiors. Just don't be too rough with them around the LEDs wire prongs as they may fray and require additional soldering.

But without further ado! ...











Once the video finishes uploading, I'll put that up too.

Any suggestions for improving AutoArt rally cars?

I have several 1/24 AutoArt rally cars. I know there are several issues with them, such as poor braking, yet they are nice looking cars.

For me the most significant issue is the guide flag. I have read that it is the same guide as the one for 1/32 cars. It is definitely very small and de-slots pretty easily. I have tried a couple replacement guides (e.g. BRM white guide), but so far none have fit and would need major modification of the chassis to work. The area in the chassis for the guide is pretty small. I am going to try a couple different Scaleauto guides with 8.3mm blades but haven't received them yet.

Has anyone tried a guide in these cars that has worked well?

I also know the tires are not the best, but haven't found aftermarket ones. At least with 4WD the tire issue is not as bad as in the 2WD cars.

I'd appreciate any information on how to improve them, short of a whole chassis replacement.

Thanks.

The F-40 is a Slot it Kit car with weight added and tires trued.

The black is Flat black and the rest of the car is gloss. This was a bit of a trick because I wanted clear coat on the whole car and wanted to kep the black flat

The Ascari is a Ninco painted in day glo colors with the yellow fading into the green. Had to swap out the motor on the Ascari because it had a 23,000 rpm installed. It now has a 21,500 power plant.

Les Wright injured in motorcycle accident

Les Wright, well-known and universally-liked proprietor of Wright Way Products in London, KY, was involved in a motorcycle accident this past Saturday while on his way to, where else?, a slot car raceway in Tennessee. Another car veered unexpectedly into his lane while he was going roughly 70 MPH on his Harley. That's the bad news...

 

The good news is that Les escaped with fairly minor injuries, just a few stitches on a hand, perhaps a broken knuckle, lots of bruises, and what he describes as "about 10 pounds of skin missing due to road rash." Which I don't believe is a recommended weight loss approach.

 

Just spoke to Les on the phone and he's sounds great. He said to tell everyone that he's going to be OK and that his motorcycle looks to be repairable.

 

I feel certain everyone who knows Les will join me in wishing him a quick recovery from his injuries.

1/24 Slot Car Laser Tach & Power Supply

I'm trying to gauge the interest in a new device I've made. It is a compact device reflective laser that delivers digital RPM real-time readings on 1/24 scale slot cars. It is powered by its own internal regulated variable power supply with digital amp and volt meters. This 1/24 SLOTCAR LASER TACHOMETER measures the ACTUAL RPM of 1/24 slot cars rotating on its built-in rollers. It measures only 8 X 6 X 1.25 inches and will fit in most wooden 1/24 size slot tool boxes easily. It is portable so you can take it to the track for last minute adjustments! No external power source is needed, you just plug it in. Here is a picture:


I've made these for HO slot cars and they are pretty popular, but this is the first one I've made for 1/24 cars and have no idea how much interest there will be—or whether I will make another.

Best compatibility?

I've recently gotten the itch to pick up slot cars after a 20+ year absence. I have limited space in an apartment but have an open room where I could get away with a 4x8 setup (wife and I are arguing about the guest bed right now :lol: ). My other sets were HO but I love the detail of the larger cars. It looks like 1:43 is the best compromise for the space constraints with some decent detail.

I really like the look of some of the Kyosho Dslots and the Go!!! cars seem to be pretty nice as well. Are these two systems compatible in regard to the vehicles? I'm an avid RC racer and love to tinker but it would nice not having to make big changes. I realize Dslots are no longer carried in the states but seem to be readily available through a number of online retailers.

I really like the idea of running the D132 chips down the road for the extra vehicles and semi programmable jam vehicles.

On another note, for users not as familiar with the site, it's users, and history of the hobby, the random questions get ridiculous while trying to use the search function looking for information. I understand the need to weed out bots but this seems awfully extreme in a hobby that already has limited numbers.

Any interest in a proxy HO drag race on this site?

Any interest in a proxy HO drag race on this site?
I have a top notch track and timing system for HO drag cars.
I have run races in the past and the only charge is shipping and
insurance for the cars both ways.
Rules and type of car/chassis would be discussed if there is any interest.
I would NOT be competing against sent in entries.

Best tyres for Scalextric track

Hi, I guess I am about to open up a can of worms here, but tyres do guys consider work best on Scalextric Sport and Classic plastic tracks?

Cars used are Scalextric Dallara in open wheeler racers, Ninco Megane and DTM Mercedes in saloons and NSR Mosler and Corvette and MRSlotcar Mazda 787B on Open class GT races.

No magnets are allowed in any class but weight may be added to the chassis.

Shadow DN5

Hi all,

Thought I should inflict a few photos of my latest build on you!!

Tom Pryce's Shadow DN5 is one I have wanted to do for a while. He is buried in the churchyard of the village that I live in (Otford) and it seems like a small but nice tribute to him.

Shell is DNQ, chassis is PP, wheels are Scalextric, decals are Pattos, wings and mirrors and bits and bobs by me. I know that the helmet is a bit modern but I prefer helmets with visors as the "open" full face helmets seem a little incomplete without a visor. (Ah well, each to their own!)

As always, forgive the number of pictures.....























And with a Flyslot friend also "from" 1975....



Thanks for looking.

Flat track race - Sat, May 9, Buena Park, CA

Well it is back to the Flat Track this coming Saturday, and we have not race there is quite a while, so please come out and join in the racing action, Flat Track Style !

 

Doors open at  8 AM, with tech usually starting about 10 AM.    After our Formula One race, which starts us off , there will be the usual lunch break then Can Am in the afternoon, usually around 1:30 PM to 2 PM.

 

Remember, on the Flat Track, King Track cars weighted up to around 110 to 115 grams work great, so do not be disappointed if you do not have a particular Flat Track car, remember, just a little lead will do the trick.

 

So, come out and join us for some real driving pleasure, and challenge yourself, the Flat Track is really a great track and a motor equalizer, so all of you that complain about Horsepower on the King should love the Flat Track, where chassis from 2 to 3 years ago run competitively and the motor is not the biggest factor.

 

Great chance to break in your Retro Hawks for the next King Track race..

New Hawk 7 motors?

I got recently some Hawk 7 motors that are different from the ones before. I can notice the tag in the can is different (SAY H7) and the motor seems to be also somehow different... more brakes, at least.

 

Is it a new change of specifications? The more brakes are relative to stronger brush arms or magnets?

 

Has anyone else also noticed this?

 

The ones I tried seem to be even a little slower than before, but that can be just bad luck...???

Comparing JK Hawk armature to others?

Hello ,

 

If someone knows, please tell me what differences are there between the JK Hawk armature wind compared to the Pro Slot and Koford Hawk replacement arms?? I mean only in the winding, I know that the quality is not comparable.  :)

 

However I need to have a clue, as the Hawk armature runs very well and when I replace the factory arm with a Koford one (expecting a better performance ), it is less powerfull and that is a surprise to me...

 

1 - What are the winds used in the three different armatures - JK Hawk, Pro Slot Hawk replacement, and Koford Hawk replacement?

2 - And what about the timing?

3 - Which Pro Slot or Koford arms are closer in wire and turns to the JK Hawk armature?

4 - Is the Hawk 6 armature different from the one in the Hawk 3031 motor? I cannot see a difference...

 

Thanks for any info.

This past weekend I raced with a club that races a class that allows sports racer type cars from 1965 to the late 80s. There is basically an unlimited motor rule. Well I raced my trusty NSR 917 and was middle to upper middle of the 15 car field competitive and I was fine with that as I was still running the 20K motor and not a 25K motor. The dominate type car in the class were tuned Avant Mirages and again I have no problem with that as they are only $49.95 away. My only problem was that when one of the racers allowed me to check out his Mirage I was surprised to see that the body had the consistency and weight more like a clear plastic body than that of the other cars. I wonder if that type body (I am sure there are others) will not bring on an onset of thinner and thinner bodies instead of more scale looking bodies. My next thought will that create a market for Slot It, NSR and others to offer a light weight body that will more mirror the bodies on the Avant Mirage?

Talladega Cup Finish

Well, another Talladega finish is in the books.

After years of juggling the spoiler, plate, and now radiator size, NASCAR has managed to get the cars to run about a foot from each other, wide open all the way around the track.

Their call. On Sunday, between a fast car up front, a team mate in second, and a rookie in third, they rolled around like marbles in a pan right through the checkered flag.

Here is the question: To me, it seemed like a boring ending following a boring middle, but some have indicated they would prefer that type of finish.

Assuming that is factual (as opposed to simply being NASCAR averse), share your thoughts if you like.

Sunday-- Earnhardt Jr win. Thumbs up :thumb: or thumbs down :(?

Beau weekend

Avec le 1e mai comme jour de congé vendredi cela faisait un beau long weekend. Mis à profit pour s'occuper avec les petites voitures et pour commencer avec la course Cartrix F1 Legend à Dison. Troisième édition de cette très belle course organisée par le DMR le jour de la fête du travail. Si les deux courses précédentes furent courue avec la Maserati 205F décorée au couleur de Maria Théresa de Filippis et avec un rapport de transmission un peu court pour les longues lignes droite du très beau circuit. 

Pour cette année j'ai une Aston Martin DBR4 achetée voici déjà presque deux ans et que je n'avais sortie que très rarement de sa boîte. Donc pour l'occasion une petite prépa minimaliste et quelques tours d'essais sur la piste du Hobby 2000 pour la comparer à la Maserati. Et il faut avouer que la différence entre les deux voitures sont très minimes, la Maserati est plus stable en virage. Et l'Aston un peu plus délicate en courbe, mais avec une meilleure reprise en accélération. Difficile de faire un choix et c'es finalement mon envie de rouler anglaise qui prit le dessus.

Très belle journée de passée avec un bon chrono qualificatif et deux belles courses pour une sixième place finale sur 22 participants, c'est même mon meilleur résultat en Cartrix F1.

Ensuite dimanche direction le club de Seraing pour une course matinale de BMW Z4 sur châssis Doslot. Je n'ai toujours pas fini la mienne et c'est dont avec une voiture en prêt que j'ai pu participer. Là aussi une très belle course dans une superbe ambiance. Et surtout merci à Damien pour le prêt de sa voiture, qui lui n'était pas présent sur cette course.

Et enfin, plus anecdotique, peut avant le début de ce long weekend, j'écrivais mon cinq millièmes message sur le forum "Scalexrévolution". Il n'y a pas qu'ici que je raconte beaucoup de bêtises. Mdr.
