Borders for TOMY banked curves?

I'm building an oval & one end will have a pair of banked curves. I'd like a border on the outside edge. Has anyone added borders to these? how did you do it?

kitbash lotus 49b gp to Indy lotus 34

I removed the exhaust system. removed the injectors, drilled holes where the spark plugs were, and inserted the injectors on top of the cams. Finally painted the top rear section, wheels, and front a arms with metallic paint. The exhaust came from another lotus. The decal came from the '63 gurney lotus decal sheet. I cut off the 93 and added the 12 to make it a '64. I still need to paint the helmet dark blue and add the lotus decals. Yes I know Gurney's exhaust was a not painted ..... but it should have been.

DHORC's 500th Club Night 12PM - Saturday - 22Aug15 - 10-Lane Donington Park

DHORC's 500th Club Night 12PM - Saturday - 22Aug15 - 10-Lane Donington Park track in the Paddock Suite at Donington Park - Free Entry - Free Barbeque

We are very excited to announce that DHORC’s 500th Cub Night will take place during the day of Saturday 22Aug15 from 12pm in the Paddock Suite at Donington Park on our 10-Lane 114’ 10” version of the Donington Park track.

It will be a normal Club Night with F1’s qualifying on odd number lanes, GC on even numbered lanes, with F1 Finals.

However to make it extra special there will be free entry to Donington Park where the FunCup races (see lower half of poster attached) will be running on the real track, plus we will be having a free Barbeque/Hog Roast for all.

We have also invited folk from other HO Clubs from up and down the country so hope to make it a big event.

The winning Adult/Junior Members on the day will go up against the winning Adult/Junior Non-Member and the subsequent winner of that 3-Minute race will take home the Alan Bullock Memorial Trophy which I am pleased to say will be presented by Alan’s daughter and former Member Claire Bullock.

If anyone would like to join us please contact me at or call me on 07968906491 or message me

More info to come

We will have to record who is coming so we can arrange passes to get into Donington and know the numbers for the Barbeque/Hog Roast.

Thank you to Andy Player from Worthing HO Racing club for producing the upper part of the poster attached

Please see photos and more details on Derby HO Racing Clubs Facebook page

Slot Car illustrated Forum

It took a few weeks, but now, here I am !!

Hello, allow me to present myself.
I’m Belgian, residing in the region of Antwerp, born in 1953.
My slot racing history is best viewed on my website.
The site is in English, but sorry, it is no longer updated in recent years, due to lack of time:

Practicing homeracing in the beginning, I started clubracing in the region of Brussels.
This was the opportunity to join in national and international competitions.
Several times in Holland and England. (1/24 Eurosport, wooden tracks)
After a few years, I had to stop these “outdoor” activities, and went back to my attic.
I’m now the proud owner of a 2 lane Carrera 1/24 Exclusiv track (8 meters long) I specialized in 1/24 scale,.
In addition to the Carrera 1/24 and BRM 1/24 cars, H&R and MJK chassis, I also race with the equipment l used during my national and international championships, such as Parma, Slotworks, 1/24 Eurosport, lexan bodies, sponge tires, 16 d, S16D and X 12 motor etc.

I will visit this forum regularly to keep informed about slotracing today.

Hoping to have lots of fun at this forum,

Greetings from The Hufo Racing Team, Antwerp, Belgium

Best option for home 1/24 slot car track?

Hi guys,


I have a lot of 1/24 slot cars and I really wanted to run these things in my house. Without buying a big commercial slot car track (my wife will kill me for sure) what is my other option? I totally understand that sponge tires won't work on plastic track, however somebody also told me that Carrera tracks won't work because slot is too shallow and track is not wide enough.


The vintage Sears Marx track is the only choice? :crazy:

Molto VeLoce Circuit - May 6, 2015
Kicking off the summer race season - with a great field of cars there's nothing more pleasing! ... But Practice Oh Timed Practice: What must one do for just one yellow flag free lappus?
Classic LeMans (Race to Line: 4 min. x 4 x 1 = 16 min.)
Escape first lap shakes... long or short may the force be with you... but not a long tail... 3 battles on the field... a 917, 908 and 512 Gunned down... ...go for broke then up in smoke... ...have you heard? The rookie just 1.5 seconds from third!!!

Classic LeMans Final Result:
1. Art - 136 Laps (19.704 sec.);
2. Kevin - 135 (15.837) (fastest lap);
3. Drew - 131 (11.517);

7. John B. - 127 (21.286);
Group 5 (Race to Line: 4 min. x 4 x 1 = 16 min.)
Let the dogfights begin! for top ace and another for third place... a failure to pass the mid rift masse... wait for a fair race then Oops in the last turn - too late for a track call - a stray finger burn...

Group 5 Final Result:
1. Art & Kevin* - 144 Laps (* fastest lap);
3. John B. - 138 (7.241 ext.);
4. Drew - 138 (16.987);

LeMans Prototype/GT (Race to Line: 3 min. x 4 x 1 = 12 min.)
What was that orange flash? ...can't see as it always flies past so fast... frustration boils with expectations high - but five offs and it is over before you hear the big sigh...

LeMans Prototype/GT Result:
1. Kevin - 112 Laps (6.077 ext.) (fastest lap);
2. Art - 111 (13.178);

3.0L LeMans (Race to Line: 4 min. x 4 x 1 = 16 min.)
The clouds parted and the chosen one would race to the top - checkers or wreckers - which shoe would drop? ...It was all good as he hung on to win - just 3/100's was the final margin... A Mirage, a couple of Alfas, several Ferraris and four Matras made the race - a great new class to add to the chase...

3.0L LeMans Result:
1. John B. - 147 Laps (17.767 ext.) (fastest lap);

2015 Race 1 COT results

Here are the results from the COT race. The lap total differences between COY and COT were primarily due to having a different "set" of drivers....slow, old, me included. Also a couple of the cars were fast but loose making consistent laps difficult.

There were a number of ties for total laps in both classes, and in every case the distance between cars was less than 5 feet, in one case only 3 car lengths.....very close racing.

Race #2 will be this coming Wednesday night at my track, Whistleville Speedway. Then the
cars will be sent off to Ray Metz in Connecticut for a couple races in New England.

Resurrecting the 70's fleet - magnet/armature matching?

I've just dug out my 70's and 80's fleet, finding a few gems in the mix, including three QaudraLam cars. I have a whole pile of the old 20-21 ohm armatures, but also some in the 16- and 6-ohm range. I also have a wide variety of T-Jet, Super II (dimpled), blue/yellow, blue/red, white/red and other magnets. Rather than invest in a Gauss meter, I plan to sort through the magnets using the compass/ruler process.

Given the current (far more advanced) state of the art these days, are there any general rules of thumb when it comes to pairing (matched) magnets to certain resistance-level armatures?

Dash & Mega Controllers ????

I'm curious about the difference of controllers used for the Tomy Mega and Mega G+ cars.
Let me be honest in that I have not owned or ever run either car, but have read what seems to be a large difference for controller ohms suggested for each.
Is the new can motor the difference for the high ohm handle for the newer car???
Controllers I've used for cars run are:
AW/JL T-Jet = 45 or 60
G-Jet, L/L or Tyco X-2= 35 or 45
BSRT=25 (rarely a 15)
Also, planning to set up some Dash T-Jets, are 45/60 close??
I have the above controllers for the road, looking into a road electronic AW/JL/Dash unit like OS3.
My track has house wired electronic Prof. Mtr handles.

Kitbashed lotus 49b's GP to lotus 34 indy cars

i removed the exhaust system. removed the injectors, drilled holes where the spark plugs were, and inserted the injectors on top of the cams. Finally painted the top rear section, wheels, and front a arms with metallic paint. The exhaust came from another lotus. The decal came from the '63 gurney lotus decal sheet. I cut off the 93 and added the 12 to make it a '64. I still need to dark blue the drivers helmet and lotus stickers. Yes I know Gurney's exhaust was a not painted ..... but it should have been.

Help with new layout

I have an L shaped base made for my new track. It is a 4 by 6 ft section at right angles to a 4 by 12 foot section. So the long edge is 12 ft and the short is 10 ft. I have 2 Giant sets to use for track at the present time. Most of the time it is just me using the track. When my two young grandsons come by I set the two power packs to beginner and they go to it without any worry about de slotting.

The current layout is

I have used almost all the straight pieces and I have a bunch of 9" curves left over. Once I settle on a design, I plan on adding full scenery to the layout. The design works ok, but the two 9 inch curves at the far end (left side) of the track makes for a long walk when de slotting. I would also like some change in elevation. Suggestions?

Total noob very confused about pits

I have the digital "Race Party" set, and I am trying to plan my future much larger permanent layout.
Making space for a pit I don't see as a problem. But, I have no clue what is involved in adding one.
I hope to be able to do fuel stops and all that. My set came with the app connect, but it looks like I need some additional parts to make it all work.

Do I actually need the driver station? Would I need one for each car? or just a pit out/pit/pit in lane? It looks like there is a special track for fuel stops. If I need that "fuel track" can it be shared, or would I need 2,3, 6 of them?

Any other info would be very helpful.

My thought is: you need a new style pit lane + pit lane adaptor + fuel track + driver station. How far off am I?

Thank you

Connecting Scalextric analogue and digital power bases to the same track

I have a permanent Scalextric analogue layout. My friend has a permanent Scalextric digital layout and so I am installing digital chips in some of my cars. But I would like to test them on my own track.

If I add a digital powerbase and a lane changer to my analogue track, will I be able to:
(a) power the analogue powerbase only and use it as a analogue track, or
(b) power the digital powerbase only and use it as a digital track
without anything getting shorted or otherwise damaging track or cars.

As long as I don't put the power on both bases at the same time, will I be ok?

Grateful for any advice,

New member and question

Hey everyone!

I have been fiddling with AFX and Tyco slots since I was a little kid. It's time for me to get serious and build a permanent layout and grow my collection. Great to be here and hope I can contribute in the future.

Question: My test track I am currently using is a LifeLike set my wife bought for me years ago. It seems to me, the controllers put out too much voltage to keep most of my old Magnatraction cars on the track. Even at the lowest speed I can go, they are too fast.

When I build my new layout, what track, controllers and power should I get? It will be a flat 2 lane.

Thanks everyone!
