Modelant - Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Mille Miglia 1938

Hola,

Nos habría gustado poder escribir antes este correo para anunciar nuestro segundo coche –que hace casi un año de sufrimiento que tenemos a punto-,  pero debido a un problema externo con unas piezas, no lo podemos presentar hasta ahora. Problema que se ha solucionado y de esta manera nuestra periodicidad mejorará.

Dicho esto nos complace presentar la referencia M-02, numerada y limitada a 300 unidades y realizada en resina de poliuretano de alta calidad a estricta escala 1/32: el Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B ganador de las Mille Miglia de 1938 a manos de Clemente Biondetti i Aldo Stefani como copiloto.

Modelo en el que mantenemos nuestra filosofía cien por cien artesanal, sin ayudas informáticas, y que potenciamos haciendo también la fabricación del chasis, siendo únicamente piezas estrictamente mecánicas las hechas fuera de nuestro taller, y convirtiéndonos así en uno de los pocos artesanos que hacemos toda la producción en nuestro taller.

Ya está disponible y podéis encontrar más información en nuestra web, tanto de la historia como del propio modelo de slot, al que hemos querido cuidar también la presentación, con una original caja de madera, y la forma de adquirirlo:

http://www.modelant.com

Deseamos que os guste.

Cox wheel and tire scale size

Recently a fellow racer asked if the Cox wheels and tires were made to scale. I took some measurements and need more info to complete my analysis. The F1 Brm and Ferrari measure 17/32 OD at the wheel, tires are marked 700-13. The Ford GT is the same. Can't say what the size the actual 1:1 cars used. Were they all running 13" wheels? The Cox Chaparral wheel measures 5/8" , tires are marked 1400-15. These ones look right but can anyone say what the size the actual 1:1 Brm and Ferrari, Ford GT, Lotus 30/40 and Cheetah used?

Racing was kicked off last night with 14 entrants.  Unfortunately we only managed 1 complete race before the transformer on the street blew up in spectacular fashion.  This means a big day of racing on the Saturday to make up the remaining two Friday races (possibly with a generator).

Steve Corneille is recording the event (including interviews), so a video will eventually be made available.

3ème manche championnat endurance 2 heures par équipes

Heureusement Cagnoc était là !


La paire invaincue; Cagnoc - R1 a failli perdre pour la 1ère fois hier lors du championnat endurance 2 heures par équipes, mais heureusement Cagnoc était là avec sa bête de course. En effet, la voiture choisie par R1 était proche de "l'inroulable". Je ne sais pas ce qui s'est passé depuis la dernière utilisation de cette voiture mais hier son comportement ressemblait à une SCX Nascsar. Après deux tours d'horloge, l'écart avec l'autre équipe de la soirée composée certes du rapide Billy et du magicien MacLaral n'est que de 5 tours. On a eu chaud ...

Résultats :
1. Cagnoc/R1 : 568 tours - 11"322
2. Billy/MacLaral : 563 tours - 11"775

Question for the motor masters

I've dissected a number of Kelly (Red Fox) D-Can motors, built by others and have noted a couple things seemingly amiss with many of them.

 

1. Many builders bolt on ProSlot brush hoods, without any alteration to the hoods or the endbell.  The result is misaligned brushes where the hoods are both offset towards the top of the motor. (Top being towards the lead wire tabs, or, and as seen with the motor mounted in the chassis). This results in the positive brush showing timing advance and the negative showing retarded timing.  

 

2. Magnets do not fit these cans very well.  There's always a little extra room.  So many of these same motors have the magnets glued in place, pushed towards the top of the can. 

 

Is this a result of lack of attention to detail (sloppy build practices), or is there some performance advantage to building motors this way?

Gold Leaf Team Lotus

There is a lot going on here on SF concerning the new Scalextric C3542A Lotus 72C at the moment. As you know I am more into building teams rather than single cars, so the next logical step would be this from the Dutch GP 1970:



Gold Leaf Team Lotus
#10 Lotus 72C - Jochen Rindt
#12 Lotus 72B - John Miles

Jochen qualified on pole and went on to win his second Grand Prix of the season. John qualified 8th and came home 7th, two laps down his team mate.

The 72B will be made out a Betta and Classic fibreglass shell and the usual PP and Scalectric stuff.

Cheers, Holger

Cox Dino restoration

Most of this build was done a while ago, but wasn't complete until I received its sweet little motor rebuild from Mr.Havlicek (thank you John)......motor received,.....car done!........

 

It started as an "experienced" car, with the typical missing bits, so a few body pieces were made. As the car will be run/raced, I did not go overboard on detail parts............that is my excuse, and I am sticking to it!!!.......the reality is that I don't possess the skills of JMP.

 

The chassis once "defuzzed" was given a quick shot of Tamiya Light gun metal, and again, while not "pink", I won't be looking over my shoulder for the oxidation to re appear. (The pics, were taken on a dark cloudy day, and the chassis is much lighter in colour than it appears).The rear "Nylatron" bushings were replaced with some 3/16 x 1/8 oilites, and the car runs very well indeed.

 

Cheers

Chris Walker

 

PS On previewing this post, I think my pics. may be too big........apologies.

Using Evolution Track in D132

Hello, new to the forum but not the hobby. I am just getting into the digital tracks and i was wondering if you can use the evolution specialty tracks with a D132 setup? Meaning, are there any power issues? I am looking at the "bump/ramp" track that evolution has and add it to a wireless D132 track. Thanks for the help in advance!

Body Style Requirements?

This is just an informal poll. The group I recently joined run a couple classes of cars but don't require a particular style of body (i.e. NASCAR, sports cars, Trans-Am, etc.). I'm just wondering if other groups do the same or if you have different classes for different styles of bodies?

GNT - Ninco GT modernes



Bonjour à tous,
Que du beau linge hier sur le Thaï-Phong pour cette GTN.  Tous les gueux du DRS sont venus user le bitume avec leur monstrueuses machines bruyantes et musclées. Si si, n'ayons pas peur des mots les zamis....on peut appeler ça des monstres. Attention les zamis, nous ne sommes pas là, en présence des petites merveilles Italiennes bien connues silencieuses et efficaces, non là, c'est juste un rapprochement "Rock'n Folk ou Métal Hurlant"...portes jarretelles en moins. Ah que voulez-vous, tout est une question de moyen.  Il faut dire que piloter une Ninco GT mal préparée relève plus du rodéo que de la glissade à Courchevel.  C'est une course d'homme quoi. Bref, bien assis sur leurs chevaux musclés, certains se sont quand même démarqués en tête.  Ensuite, le peloton était beaucoup plus serré avec peu d'écart de tour.  Il y avait que des balle caisses toutefois....la preuve en image ...
Premier CLAUDE : enfin sa première victoire sur le Thaï en cette saison 7 sur Lamborghini Murcièlago, la même qui avait déjà gagné l'an passé.  Monsieur Claude a pris la tête dès le départ et ensuite au revoir la compagnie...nous ne l'avons plus revu.  Enfin si, tous ceux qu'il a doublé plusieurs fois l'ont bien vu et revu, puff puff.  Il y en a même qui l'on vu passer deux fois dans le même tour ksi ksi ksi...mais je ne dirais pas de nom , hein ? non non non! Qui ? non non non . Pas de ça chez nous. Bravo Claude ...et mettez des boules Quiés tellement les 16 points font du bruit en tombant dans sa timbale. Bravo Claude...tu remontes au gégène, il était temps. Et comme le veut la coutume....photo de la tronchette du vainqueur ...
La suite du podium ...ébin dites donc, deuxième not' JEAN DANIEL avec sa vieille Porsche 997  ....Il s'est quand même payé le luxe de ridiculiser les vaillantes Audi R8 et autres Mosler, Mégane, Ford GT et toul' toutime ...épicétou, tra la la. Bravo JD, il ramasse 14 points et conforte sa première place au gégène.  Troisième PIERRE avec une Mosler au top, bien préparée.  Pierre n'a pas fait beaucoup de sortie de route. La régularité a finit par payer...  Pierre se paye un podium  bien mérité ce soir et il part avec 12 points.  Encore un Gueux qui remonte au gégène.  Bravo.  Alors oui, envoyez la photo du podium complet ....
Belle brochette Gueusée, non ?  Y a du matos là, wouias donc...Ah y sont mignons ...gadez les !!! mais si gadez !  Continuons le reste du classement. Regardez les positions de chacun des pilotes que vous aimez bien, ou que vous n'aimez pas ! pffffff  "ah bin quoi, si on peut pu rien dire maintenant ".  J'ai pris une photo de la feuille de course.  Gadez dessous, si si là, gadez, juste en dessous ...
Hein ? Qui ? Quoi ? Qu'entends je ? ...Vous voulez le gégène aussi ? Et que ça saute ?  Oh là, ils vont bientôt nous menez au fouet, moij'voul'dis !!! Bon bin Ok les mecs, le v'là vot'Gégène !  Epicétou !!
 Prochaine course : LE FIL ROUGE monotype Ford GT40 Slot-it. Compétition appelée "ADC" Absolute Driver Concept ...tout le monde logé à la même enseigne, à la recherche du pilote absolu. C'est une épreuve de pilotage pure. Allez, c'est fini les commentaires ....Bye bye  !! Prenez pas froid, un bon cache-nez, une bonne soupe...une pipe et au lit".  A bientôt les gueux. Paul JOURNET

STE - 3D printed Wood Track Connector and Leveling plate

While working on our test track I came across the need for a way to connect and support track pieces off the table or floor. As a result we designed and produced the following piece.

The images show a pre-production piece for our track to mate two CNC track panels with a specifit bolting pattern, however the we have added additional features to allow more attachment options for anyone to use.

These pieces are made in ABS, available in either Red, Blue or gray. These will be on the site early next week as kits. And as reminder we are also producing 3d printed flippers !!

D3D New Product

Hey guys, we have another new product entry coming your way! For those applications where you are tight on space at the front of your car, we will now be offering a Mini Front Carrier. It allows 80° of rotation and the centerline of the axle is only 3mm away from the center of the post. This is just enough to allow for the post to clear the axle properly. This one will only be offered in Drilled Hole Configuration (3/32 by default but could be opened up) because of the tight space. The offsets options are the same as our other front carrier. This one really speeds up the scratchbuilding process for those snub nose builds. Below are some sneak peek pics with an existing front carrier for size comparison. Look for this one to drop on November 1st!!!

Scalextric ARC ONE C1329 - ARC ONE C1329 What will I be buying?

Hi, I have just received an email news letter from Scalextric inviting me to pre order a Scalextric ARC ONE system C1329 due for release and for delivery in November 2014 £99.99. I viewed the linked video for the system but Have no idea what I would be buying if I pre ordered the system. Can anyone out there offer any advice or info on this new set. I have what I thought was the most up to date Scalextric Digital system, in fact several of every one of their systems. Though I still have not yet bought a USB interface cable to connect to one of my PCs which I had planned as my next advancement. Does this C1329 now make my one year old latest digital set up obsolete. The video talks about apps and Blue Tooth of which I know nothing. As I have never yet ever owned or even ever used a mobile phone of any sort; assuming that is what the hand held device was being shown in the video; would I be buying somthing that is of no use to me if I ordered one of these C1329 sets? Any advice please would be appreciated.

Slotcars and HDMI

I'm planning on using an old flat panel TV as a monitor for the timing system.


My plan is to use a powered VGA to HDMI converter from a laptop to the TV (old laptop without HDMI output). The reason for HDMI instead of a long VGA cable is that I may stream movies/TV through my laptop once in a while, and it would be nice to have HD.


Is there an issue regarding interference/noise from slotcars affecting the digital signal running through the cable?


Is it better to remain analog and use composite/component with modern 1/32 slotcars operating nearby?

Tudor GTD Class in Trouble?

A good article at Racer.com talks about all the Tudor GTD teams leaving to go race in the Pirelli World Challenge. Supposedly it all comes down to money. The Tudor series has four long distance events, making the cost to run a team almost $2M a year. The Pirelli series is all sprint events with no pit stops, meaning the costs are VASTLY less.

A year ago the Tudor series was looking to have fields of 55-60 cars. I think when 2015 starts the grids will be LOTS smaller.

Looking forward to buying future offerings in this series.

Best Entry Level T-Jet Controller?
