1966 Chevy II Nova

I just finished up the 1966 Chevy II Nova. This was a 3D printed body with a ton of hand-work done to it.

The blue car is modeled after a 1966 Chevy II Nova that ran in the 1970 SCCA Trans-American Championship races at Road America and at Watkins Glen.

The gold car is what is considered a “Sportsman” that participates in asphalt or dirt oval track racing. It is a complete fantasy livery with decals made by me.









Not as awesome as some of the builds here, but thought I'd throw my hat in the ring.

Murphy's Glen results

As promised...photos and results (I hope, I just switched to a new computer with Windows 8...and I'm just figuring out how to use it)

The track scenery is still under construction with a few more houses to add, as well as the "downtown" facades, a dock, a boat, swimmers, etc.

Finishing order is shown in the photos and listed below.

Car#/Make Qualifying (seconds) Total Laps Observations
Inside Outside
78 Camaro 10.6 10.7 38.3 Smooth and fast
8 Camaro 10.5 10.9 38.11 Smooth and fast
42 Barracuda 10.7 10.8 39.12 Smooth but didn't come off the corners as well
21 Camaro 10.5 10.7 39.21 A little touchy in braking, but fast
31 Camaro 10.5 10.9 39.3 Almost identical to the 21
88 Barracuda 11.00 11.1 41.1 Very fast, but didn't like the hairpin at all

Under 2.5
8 BMW 11.7 11.8 35.4 I love this car...almost as fast as last years Capri
4 Porsche 11.7 11.9 35.37 Very smooth, best brakes
7 Porsche 11.9 12.1 35.34 Also smooth, not as fast out of the turns
57 Alfa 12.3 12.699 36.12 A bit tippy, wanted to roll in tight turns








Chassis Flex for BSRT 905 on Max-Trax

Our club runs the BSRT 905 Club stock car which has a flex chassis.
Two of our tracks are AFX and Tomy (lite rail) and my layout is a Max-Trax.(Hi DF rail)
Would the cars benefit on the MT if a low DF traction mag set up were used or a chassis change to medium or stiff?
All layouts are road course with table lengths approx 20 ft. & sizeable straights.
Generally, my tire set up for the MT is .360 front and about .468 sili sponge rears using flex chassis.

2015 Track List

Hi "Powers That Be'

Do we have a track list yet? Something that I can make uneducated guesses from?

Cheers, Tony.

Opinions for G-Jet Motor Mags

I'd like to build 6 IROC G-Jets for club racing of my Max-Track.
The chassis will be G-3 Flex(Not R), light weights, O ring G front end set and .450 sili sponge rears.
As the MT has Hi-downforce rail, any suggestions between Tomy matched or BSRT C-4 motor mags?

Race #15 - Japanese Grand Prix - Suzuka!

Well thanks to the weirdness of circular time, this one will commence 11:00pm Saturday out here on the left coast (8:00pm in Maui, Thom!), ideal for snacks 'n beer, I reckon.

A modern classic, this circuit.



Will Hamilton win here - finally? I doubt it.

But we shall have to see. Meanwhile, 17-year old Max Verstappen will take to the track for some practice time on some other day that is probably Friday where you live. Presumably, he has a driver license.



Should be a good one - I'm making no guesses until after qualifying. :nono:

Where do I get a 3mm axle for a Hudy tyre truer?

Hi Folks,

 

I've got a tyre truer that uses a 1/8" axle with a pulley on it to spin the tyres.  For 3/32 wheels I have an axle that's 1/8" on one end to accept the pulley and run in the bearings and turned down to 3/32 in the other end to accept the wheels.  I need a similar adapter that goes from 1/8" to 3mm so I can fit Tamiya and Plafit wheels.  Where can I get one?

 

Thanks,  Steve

Slot cars with or without lights

Anybody else feel really strongly about lights? I just picked up a used car that I thought I'd like, but it doesn't have lights and it just didn't seem fun or interesting to drive. For some reason a car without lights just isn't very appealing to me. Am I the only who feels like this?

SCX new models and an apparent comeback ?

I just noticed that SCX will be coming out with some new models after some type of restructuring ?

I honestly thought they were out of business but it appears to not be the case.

With that in mind, has anyone seen the chassis for these new cars ? are they still using their weak motors and over engineered guide flag/electrical parts ?

controller suggestions

I'm running a fairly small home track, right now. It's a Scalextric set up with about 50 feet of track on a 12 x 10 table. I have a 10 amp, 30 volt power supply running things. I run all sorts of brands of cars both with magnets and without. Now, here's the question... Which controller would you suggest? I'm leaning toward a PM but, not sure if I should go with the 10 - 15 amp or the 14 - 19 amp controller. I do intend to increase the track size eventually. But, could really use some input here. Also, any gearing suggestions would be welcomed! Thanks, guys!

Mitsu Pajero sencillito.

No espereis nada del otro mundo, solo un trabajillo casero con una carrocería que tenía en el cajón del olvido, je,je.

La victima, (o cuerpo del delito ).

 La víctima desnudita,

 Tres capas de pintura blanca en spray, unas calcas de allí, otras de allá, otras de maracullá. Un poco de salpicaduras de pintura al esmalte y tenemos el efecto "lávalo guarro que no encoje !!!". Dos manitas de barniz made in china. Dejamos secar y colocamos las piececillas... y voilá, tenemos otro cochecillo pa´la vitrina.

 Eso es to,,, eso es too,, eso es todo amigos. ( copyrihgt by Porky )

 Ya os decía que no es nada del otro jueves, pero yo me he pasado bien haciéndolo y he experimentado para hacer el efecto barro, que aunque no me ha quedado perfecto, me doy por satisfecho.

 Un saludo... y no seáis demasiado duros conmigo :5}

Adding rubber molding to crash walls

Below are a few images of my latest track improvement rubber molding. In order to preserve plastic bodies and wooden crash walls from carnage of violent collisions, I have added a layer of rubber molding to the crash walls. The molding is actually dubbed cove molding and is typically used at the base of interior walls to protect against damage or scuffing of painted surfaces. Cove molding adhesive (similar to liquid nails) is used to bond the molding to the surface in question and does and admirable job that is quick, easy and clean (any excess adhesive can be wiped off with warm water and a rag). The molding comes in a variety of colors heights and thicknesses. I selected black four inch high by eighth inch thick. Home improvement stores carry this molding for about $.50 per linear foot. The molding has a horizontal ribbed surface on its back side that I used as a guide to cut the molding to the proper height to fit my crash walls. I cut the material with a scissors; however, it can be cut effectively with a table saw.

Lighted cars?

I know some have been released over the years but wouldn't it be cool if the newish Mega G Audi & Peugeot had lighting? Especially since they are both endurance racers. Also, not just lighting, but constant light so that it did not brighten & dim depending on how much juice you were giving it. Has anyone tried to do this yet? If so, how?

gokartride's Blog - Towns and a River

Work continues on my little Mille Miglia SSD track so I thought I’d provide an update. I have completed a few more buildings for one of the town areas and added LED lighting to these buildings to enhance night racing. I chose to power the LEDs using a 9 volt battery which means lighting and power source can at any time be removed from the track as a unit for additional modelling.



I also added some small 2D backdrop structures to give a sense of distance and that there is more to the town than is seen on the track. These are painted on a simple piece of poster board and, once cut out, are adhered to the backdrop using rubber cement. The larger structures help in allowing me to make the backdrop elements in segments. These hide any seams.

I also continue to work on the small stream that crosses the layout on a slight diagonal.


For this stream I am using multiple coats of Mod Podge using the technique seem in this video.

Finally, I am continuing with landscaping on the back of the circuit. Here you can see in the background rough-in for another section of town.


To the right you can also see some rough-in for basic scenery in this section, including the intersection with another side road. Now that I am more comfortable with the scenic materials I am using, it is easier to make informed decisions about the scenic rough-in, and to play around with the foam base, able to envision how other layers of materials, colors and textures will interact with it.

One of the interesting "planned" releases for 2015 was the Chaparral 2G of Jim Hall. It was listed as being produced in the 3rd Quarter of 2015.

Factory BRM e la nuova McLaren F1 GTR

Ne è passata di acqua sotto i ponti da quando, una decina di anni fa, la BRM Model Cars lanciò sul mercato dei modelli slot car in scala 1/24 interamente costruiti in plastica.
Da un'azienda che produceva particolari per modelli statici da collezione, non si poteva pensare che i primi modelli slot funzionassero alla perfezione. La prima serie di Gruppo C era bellissima da vedere ma, in quanto a dinamismo, bisognava accontentarsi.
Già da un po' di tempo si sentiva nell'aria una svolta che avrebbe portato la BRM ad una consacrazione nel settore della scala 1/24.
Ora quel momento è arrivato, la svolta è concreta e palpabile.
Vi porto nella Factory BRM dove vedrete molte cose interessanti, e poi in pista a provare la McLaren F1 GTR di imminente uscita.

lexan body repaint

I am trying to repaint a lexan wizzard HO scale body actually stripping the paint off now, I have no experience in painting lexan bodies . I do know that you paint the inside not the outside. This body was painted on the inside and out side both I got the paint off the outside without a problem. Where I ran into problems was stripping the paint from the inside its painted then has some kind of white coating over the paint to protect it. I can’t find out what this white coating is its hard to get off. It doesn’t seem like paint it’s ruff and hard but it does flake off. If anyone know what it is and an easy way to remove it please let me know. And yes I have searched Google but haven’t been able to find anything about what it is. I know people will say just buy a new body they are cheap but this one is pinned and trimmed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Tomy Turbo Lighted Cars

You know those lighted TOMY Turbo (Front and rear lights) cars- Jaguars, etc.
They have kind of a funky (high) look because the entire lighting infrastructure for the front/rear lights is sort of built into the body.
Anyway.... I ended up with the Purple/Yellow Silk Cut Jag one which I'd never seen- I always see (and have) the other 4.
Didn't know they made that one and was just wondering if it is/was rare?
Did some research but had a hard time finding any/many of that one.
Thanks in advance.

eBay to split off lucrative PayPal business

NEW YORK (AP) — EBay is splitting off its fastest growing segment, mobile payment service PayPal, the e-commerce company said Tuesday.

Investors applauded the news, sending eBay's shares up nearly 7 percent in morning trading.

The move comes after months of pressure from activist investor and billionaire Carl Icahn, who has a 2.5 percent state in eBay, according to FactSet. EBay CEO John Donahoe had been adamant that splitting off PayPal was the wrong move for the company. But Tuesday, the company said that making the mobile payment service a separate publicly traded company next year "maximizes strategic focus and flexibility for eBay."

Although it has not become mainstream yet, the mobile payment sector is growing quickly. Citi Investment Research analyst Mark May said in a note last month that the sum total of mobile payments could grow from $1 billion in 2013 to $58.4 billion by 2017. Apple threw down a gauntlet in September with its own digital wallet Apple Pay, seen as a major competitor to PayPal.

"The payments landscape is hyper-competitive, the pace of change is accelerating and everyone is gunning for PayPal," said Forrester analyst Denee Carrington. "The split will give PayPal greater agility to help it achieve its full potential."

Donahoe also said he will step down as CEO of eBay after overseeing the separation of the two companies and will not have a management role in either of the two afterward. He may have a seat on the board at one or both, along with eBay Chief Financial Officer Bob Swan.

Dan Schulman, an executive at American Express, will be the new president at PayPal, effective immediately. The 56-year-old will become PayPal's CEO once the separation takes place.

Devin Wenig, currently president of eBay Marketplaces, will become CEO of the new EBay Inc. He will lead the eBay Marketplaces and eBay Enterprise businesses.

Cowen and Co. analyst John Blackledge said the spinoff "makes a great deal of sense," because there is "manageable overlap" between the two businesses and the new structure makes PayPal "more nimble" to respond to challenges like Apple Pay.

EBay, based in San Jose, California, said that the separation was the best path for growth and shareholder value creation for each business.

EBay is an e-commerce site that connects sellers to buyers. PayPal, acquired by eBay in 2002 for $1.3 billion, has been its fastest-growing segment.

In the most recent quarter, PayPal gained 4 million new, active registered accounts, up 15 percent, to 152 million. Payments revenue rose 20 percent to $1.95 billion, about 45 percent of eBay's total revenue.

PayPal users can send and receive payments online, with all transactions backed by prepaid user accounts, bank accounts or credit cards. The service is available in 203 markets worldwide and is on track to process 1 billion mobile payments in 2014.

There is a push away from traditional credit cards, particularly after a string of high-profile data breaches that have ensnared major retailers like Target and Home Depot.

Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce powerhouse in China, split off its PayPal-like mobile payment arm, Alipay, in 2011.

"A thorough strategic review with our board shows that keeping eBay and PayPal together beyond 2015 clearly becomes less advantageous to each business strategically and competitively," Donahoe said.

PayPal has been expanding beyond mobile payments and offering other financial services. It began lending money to small business customers late last year. And eBay bought Braintree, a payment processor used by startups such as vacation rentals site Airbnb and cab-hailing app Uber, a year ago for about $800 million and will be part of the PayPal.

Shares of eBay jumped nearly 7 percent to $56.16 in morning trading.

Easier to build Slot Track Tables, using Centipede Saw Horse

I was going to post about using a folding tent frame, or a folding back drop for a trade show display wall to support a sheet of wood to build a track table... but I found this instead.

http://centipedetool.com/

They are back ordered... but it should make for an easy to setup, and possibly easier to stow, track table.

Isn't about time for a bunch of new cars to come out for the Christmas gathering of new toys..?

Want to make a 28.4cc W18 engine? Full instructions here...

There's a very talented Spanish machinist named Patelo who likes to make small engines for eductional purposes. Seemingly the 12cc V12 he created a few years back wasn't enough of a challenge, se he decided to whip up a W18 just to keep his hand in, I guess. The fun part is that he has documented the entire process in a nice series of eight videos.

Paelo's engine are used for indoor teaching purposes and thus are made to run on compressed air instead of explosive fuel.

Some specs on the engine:

Number of pieces: 469
Number of screws: 388
Work hours: 1850
Displacement: 28.4 cc
Piston Stroke: 10.25 mm
Piston diameter: 14 mm
