Brabham Turquoise - what colour is it?

Hi, does anyone have an idea what Halfords car colour is closest to the early Brabham Turquoise, not the Dark Green they used later?

Appreciate any help...

PSK - Jaguar XKSS



Here is my last realization.

I have to admit that the original car is (according to me) one of the most beautiful car ever made.

Several pieces were reworked, not because they were wrong but simply because I damaged them with my clumsy fingers :-/


The kit come from Proto-slot-kit, I bought it painted white but decided to re-do it and offer it my own livery


Paint & varnish come from Motip (automotive can)

It was polished with a standar 1:1 automotive product

All mecanics are Slot-it

Wheels from pendle and tires from my spare box (probably form a scalex Type D)


Here are some pics to illustrate the WIP



















And the finished car:













I hope that I was not boring with so many pics


Thanks for your interest



My 4-ohm Parma Turbo controller started to smoke

It started to smoke only with Super 16 and above the track.

Don't know what the track power is, it is rebuilt with all new parts.

Any Help would be great

Hot Springs Speedway has been sold

John Ford has sold Hot Springs Speedway located in Hot Springs, AK, effective immediately. John said that the reason for the sale was his declining health and not being able to keep up with the effort needed to properly run the business.


An unidentified local family has purchased the raceway and plan positive changes TBA for the future. For the time being, the Friday night 'Hot Wing' and the Wednesday night Womp racing are planned to continue.


This is all that I know at this time; additional information will be posted when it is available.

Tamiya 1/24 Lola T70 body kit

Can anyone tell me if there is a certain vintage 1/24 chassis the above ((Japanese only) Tamiya 1/24 Lola T-70 will fit (e.g. plug-n-play)....???
It has the two outboard mounting posts positioned behind each front wheel opening and one centered at the rear of the body where the engine if found on a 1:1 car. The positioning/configuration reminds me of the mounting holes on a Cox 1/24 Magnesium chassis....
Anyone help...???

JK Hawk vs PM Retro motor comparison

First, congratulations to all the racers and to Mike McMasters for putting on another fine R4.
The results are in for the Coupe handout R4 race. Last year used the Hawk Retro motor. This year was the PM motor. Lets see how they performed.
Bottom line, the Hawk motor was faster and maybe more importantly, more consistent for closer, more exciting racing. This has been the goal of JK Products® motor development program for two years now and the results are in.
The top 15 racers qualified almost a tenth slower than last year. Furthermore, the difference between the first 15 racers was over half a second. Last year this gap was under a quarter second. The variability for the Hawk motor was less than half the PM motor. While the absolute speed comparison from year to year could depend upon track conditions, the variability of the results should not be affected.
The qualifying was not only faster, but much closer and consistent using the Hawk Retro motor.
When you look at the racing results, again, the Hawk motor proved faster and more consistent. The top five racers completed two more laps last year using the Hawk motor. In addition, this year there was a 16-lap difference between the first and fifth place finishers. Last year, that difference was only six laps. There was faster and much tighter racing at the front using the Hawk motor.
What about the rest of the field? The results are similar. The top 15 racers completed five more laps using the Hawk motor than this years motor. Also, there was a 33-lap gap between the first and fifteenth place finishers this year. Last year, that gap was only 21 laps. The Hawk motor was faster and more consistent leading to much closer and exciting racing across the field.
The racing was not only faster, but much consistent and closer using the JK Hawk Retro motor.

Pactra Mecom Lola GT slot car body

I don't know anything about vintage vac bodies, but I have been watching ebay for them lately.


This sold for $142 plus shipping. What makes this body worth so much?




Race day schedule at FTH, 3/18, and new car pic

Schedule for our race on Sunday at FTH = Can Am (Purple Angel) @ Noon, Followed by Stock car on purple angel. Then we'll switch to the yellow dragon flat track for F-1. I'm planning to be there all day Saturday foe setup etc but circumstances (see below) may make that iffy.


No time in the last month at all for building and testing but got a track report today from Randy Keil. He thinks that both tracks are pretty good as they are. Dwight may spray both tomorrow if needed.


Circumstances...............Here's a new pic of my car................ :shok:





Our next two races will be:


April 15 - Motown. Can Am, Pro Coupe on the 'Climb. F-1 on the Korkscrew.

May 20 - Fast Track Hobbies. Can Am, Pro Coupe on the Angel, F-1 on the Dragon.


After that, it will depend upon my work load this summer as to whether I try to expand back out to the other tracks or keep a two track rotation for this year. (We are opening more new stores so I suspect the latter). If we stay in place with two tracks, we will start "switchup races" in June and for sure will get in some Can Am and Stock Car races on the flat tracks.
