Here I will post car arrivals, pictures and scrutineering as well as a few impressions after a few laps.

SLOP 4 Build Thread - Tracks and Cars

I will take the liberty to start a new thread for track and car builds. Contestants will be able to post info and pics of what they are working on, as an inspiration to everyone else.

I will start it off with a couple of pics of my SLOP 4 Mini. Oh no, not another Mini. :lol::lol::lol:





The car now has a Slot.it orange end bell motor, and runs pretty well.

Would Sir like to try something in beige?

After a false start with a three lane road course I threw it out and started over with a rally loop that I am happy with ...now I know it works. 14.25 metre lane length, elevation 28cm, sweeper, banking, hairpin, straight, esses...and about a 6.5 second lap time.






Anybody Going to Austin?

Just wondering if anyone is going to COTA for the USGP next weekend. I've never been to COTA, but I'd like to someday. Maybe one day once the kids are grown and on their own. Sadly, it looks like the Caterham team won't be there so there will be only 20 cars.

I worry about the longevity of the USGP. COTA looks like a nice track, but I fear after a year or two of the initial hype, interest is starting to gradually dwindle away. I thought Indy was the perfect place for a USGP, but even that didn't work out.

BSI - Braquettes Slot-It


Bonjour à tous,

Avec le froid qu'il faisait dehors, c'était pas un temps à faire du cabriolet, moij'voul'dis ...ébin les gueux zont roulé en barquette, si si j'les ai vu, j'étais là !!! Ah des frappa dingues ...canadienne, moufles, rangers et passe-montagnes, arf ...hein ? quoi ? des casques voui voui ? Ah voui les gars, sorry! c'est des casques qui zavaient les gueux;;;;  mais froid ou pas, zétaient là et yzont avoinés quand même grave hier soir et yzont battus des records encore, des scores de sport.  Voilà les zamis, la première épreuve de BSI hier Jeudi 23 Octobre 2014...les fous sont lâchés, écartez vous. Allez photos des tautos et des gueux...

Course haletante à l'issue incertaine avec des records qui passaient des uns aux autres. Pourtant dans cette meute d'attaquants, un seul pilote va réussir a se dégager ...oui mais de justesse...aie aie !!!   Vainqueur STEPHANE ( Dustef pour les intimes ).Troisième victoire depuis le 1er Septembre. Bravo Dustef qui pique la première place à Didier pour quelques centièmes comme l'indique l'ordinateur. Même nombre de tour mais meilleure moyenne pour Dustef.  C'est le jeux ma pov'Lucette. La Ferrari de Dustef n'a pas faibli du début à la fin. Portrait du vainqueur ...STEPHANE

Le podium c'est 3 pilotes, alors le deuxième comme je vous le disais...c'est not'ami DIDIER, l'a bien roulé l'gars...l'était même premier pendant longtemps et crac badaboum, il se fait croûter la victoire! Damned mais bravi tout de même et Didier aussi c'est la grande classe. Et le troisième gueux a monter sur le trône, ébin c'est l'CLAUDE épicétou. Il a pourtant cravacher le Claude mais rien à faire, les deux ch'tits devant zétaient plus fort tra la la ! Aller photo ...

Le reste du classement est interessant aussi car nous avons des pointures qui, toutefois, ne pointaient pas ce soir. Et pourquoi qui pointaient pas les gueux ? Ebin zavaient peut'êtes pas l'matos qui va avec, tra la la. Ah non mais ce soir, fallait avoir astiqué l'matos pour le faire rougir ...heu "rugir" excusez moite!  Non, on déconne mais c'était achement bien, si si. Trés belle course et bonne ambiance... 

Et maintenant, on va se régaler car j'ai fais les comptes ! Si si, tout est à jour et les points tombent course après course.  Je vous mets en dessous, le grand gégène du DRS ...que le monde entier nous envie.  Je vous laisse regardez et je vous reprends juste après. Mais gadez bien !!! Si si gadez !!! A tout de suite les zamis et le gueux.

Me revoilà ! Alors zavez vu le classement général ...tsi tsi tsi ! Zavez vu l'podium tsi tsi tsi ! Ah moi aime bien, tsi tsi tsi. magnifique ! Que dis je, géant.  Waou la bagarre sul'podium pour un petit point.  Allo allo Jean Daniel ... t'as prévu un vêtement chaud ? pfff  bon OK je sors ...Ah bin quoi, si on peut pu rien dire maintenant. Oh dites-donc les gueux, outre le nouveau 4 pistes Ninco itinérant en construction, il m'est venu une autre idée ...une idée de "ouf" certes, mais très très réalisable dans nos locaux.  Et vous savez qui si je m'y colle, ça va ouiner grave !!!  Avant, je dois m'entretenir avec quelqu'un que vous connaissez tous, un vieux de la vieille qui pourrait m'épauler dans ce projet.  Il faut qu'il soit d'accord sur l'idée et je vous en parle après.  Vous allez aimer.  Comme j'ai des idées en ce moment, profitez-en car dans mon carton il pourrait y en avoir encore une autre, mais chut ... !!!    
Voilà, les commentaires BSI sont terminés. Et j'ai très envie de reprendre les "bons mots" de fin de notre ami Marsan-Bellac  ...et je vous dis "Attention sa glisse couvrez-vous ! Prenez pas froid, un bon cache-nez, une bonne soupe...une pipe et au lit".  A bientôt les gueux. Paul JOURNET

Ferrari 512S vs. 512M

I love my Carrera cars, and have come to really appreciate the D124 cars more and more over the last few years. One of the cars I've had trouble appreciating is the D124 Ferrari 512S cars. Something about the look of the car was just not very appealing, or just a little off, to me. So I went online and searched for images and videos of the original 1:1 racing car. After looking at some images and a couple videos I realized what my eye was picking up on. The 512M is the car I had as a kid in HO. I must have had 10 different versions from Tyco and AFX, and I liked the long tail which made the car a really nice compliment/competitor for the 917's. I guess it just looks faster to the eye, or as the Brits say, "it looks more racy". Maybe you guys like the 512S better or don;t really notice the difference.

So I'm going to pass on buying the 512S and hope Carrera makes a 512M with the nice long tail and lower front end. I'd even go for it in 1/32 to race against my Can-Am cars. I reached out to Dave K. to see if they have any plans for releasing one. As I expected; he couldn't give me an answer one way or the other. The one takeaway from his answer is that they won't release one anytime in 2015. But who knows, after that, anything could happen. Funny how some body styles catch our eye while others don't, even when they're very similar.

Racer/Silverline News; 275GTB & 312P



News from Racer/Silverline;

There are a couple of new livery announcements that we expect from Racer and Silverline before the end of the year.

275GTB Maranello Concessionaires
Le Mans 24hrs 1966
P.Courage / R.Pike
Ref; RCSL24
Retail £125.00




First up we have the beautiful 275GTB Maranello Concessionaires entry into the 1966 Le Mans. For those of you who didn't know Maranello was the official UK importer of Ferrari for many years and took an active role in motorsports entering many of the world's top sports car events. Note the car does not have the prancing horse on its sides, it was only the official Italian Factory team that was allowed to do that at the time. Featuring Slot.it components throughout this is a lovely handcrafted masterpiece from Racer's Silverline range.

312P N.A.R.T. Team
Daytona 24hrs 1970
#24 S.Posey / M.Parkes
Ref; RCR69
Retail £190.00




The second release is the 312P Coupe as raced in the 1970 Daytona 24hrs by the N.A.R.T. team. I've got to say that Ferrari's stop gap coupe introduced in 1969 before the 512S, is one of the prettiest sports racing cars ever made. What the car lacked in overall results was in my opinion more than made up for in the looks department! These resin hand built models as always feature Slot.it internals and are sort after by Ferrari collectors the world over.

Shot in the dark here...

Hi guys,

Total hot in the dark here - does anyone know where I can track down either a 1:32 or 1:24 body shell (resin/plastic/even dreaded vacform, whatever...) of a Darrian T90

http://www.626vgs.co.uk/includes/Darrian%20GTR.jpg

These cars are built in Wales by a small company and regularly compete in tarmac rally championships and the like and would love to make one.

The Un-named Track in Calgary

Hi folks,

It's been a few years since I've actively posted, "coincidentally" when our local, club fractured apart....after things got too competitive at a team enduro event.

We'll our old regular host Bob, moved recently and once again has a nice big space for track. Bob's previous club track was a 70+' 4 laner on Scaley plastic:





We'll, Bob's seen the light after racing on my 3 lane wood track. He approached me this summer about designing and routing him one. After routing 4 tracks previously you do pick up a thing or two .... Plus a few hard lessons.

My first track - Tanglewood Targa - fun to look at, racing? Ah, not so much. She lasted 9 months. Skid aprons needed more space, elevation changes too drastic, too many squeeze points, not great visibility in some areas, marshaling a challenge too:





My 2nd track, and current track Mugello, 7 years old and going strong! Designed by racers for racers :-)




My 3rd track, for MrCarp aka Paul's track aka Somethin' Fun Speedway. Small but quick and fun to race:



So on to Bob's new track. We started with this design:



The track took inspiration from Estoril in terms of layout and a bit of Suzuka for a cross over and switchbacks. The big corner is a owner request that he wants banked.

Some other design considerations, all areas are marshal-able combined with a comfortable walk around space around the track of 33". Track height lowered to 28 or 30" to help facilitate reach for marshaling. 4 lanes was a must, but tough to do with less than 8' to work with re track table width. We went with 3" spacing to save space and mimic the old Scaley track spacing. A cross over was requested to even out lap lengths as much as possible.

We wanted some elevation change (obviously with a cross over), but went with gradual ones to keep it smooth. Not all corners are the same, nor cambered the same. The track had to be fast, but with one technical section.

Here's a pic of our intrepid track owner dreaming of what to do with his new space:



The table takes shape:



MDF arrives, noticed the track design has been tweaked:



Work begins on the"Daytona" corner. Bobs request is to decrease the lane spacing to 2" so only every other lane can pass, otherwise you're drafting. Took some convincing of me, but now it looks like it'll be a cool feature. It'll also be the only point on the track where the spacing goes anything less than 3".

Next up is the switchback corners that lead into Daytona...





The other side of Daytona leads on to a long sweeping straight...we designed this so the big sweeper corner coming on or off the straight would make the straight drive and feel longer than it is:



Off this "straight" will be working pits :-) it'll be old school, with two pits on each side opposite each other...again, special request from Bobby:







The templating of the pits that was used (flipped it over) to trace to the other side:



Routed pit lanes - ready to be sent to our master gadgeteer Dan, who's designing and embedding flippers; 2 per lane so we can pit in either direction :-)



Looks like a big set of lips, kinda reminds me of the 'Stones,eh?

Routing begins late on a Sat night assisted by our masked man, Mr Bob!





Next up, the switchbacks. Beware of cousin Dave!





My little router going strong. That Freude carbide bit is on its 4th track. Now that's quality!

End of the pit row straight, as it transitions into the "bus stop"



Cousin Dave with a manly gesture...oh yeah, another bus stop shot


Ahhhh....cousin Dave doing man's work, cleaning up after us :-) This is the overpass as it turns to your right onto the start/finish straight.



Bob informing us that "we are here"




Daytona curve cut out


....with the switchback



Resident racer no-hands Ken showing off the freshly cut overpass..mmm delicious!



Switchbacks pic into the overpass:



The beginning of the pit "straight":



Time to fix our, okay my mistakes and putty up the nail holes and start painting the slots:











More progress....



Coming together....









Good shot of the start / finish straight that leads uphill to the overpass:





Elevations begin! The first screw...you never forget your first



Playing with Daytona banking





Bondo'ing the joints... So pungent, it stings the nostrils! And kills the brain cells....someone open a window!





Painting begins where we can. MrCarp striking a pose.....













Where the start finish gantry will end up being planted:



Daytona banking, close to 5" high - around a 15 degree angle. Not super huge, but the cars back ends will slide down ... aka its's good enough.



As we stand today:







Things a bit on hold for now while the pits get sorted out. Once done we'll drop that piece in, route connections into existing pieces, paint and tape; then paint and tape overpass and other sections too.

So more pictures as we progress....lap lengths are 60'8" for the blue lane, 60'5" for the red lane (would have been the same if not for merging the lanes on the bank)' yellow is 60'4" while green is 60' even. Not quite perfect, but then again pretty darn close!

Also working with Dave from Race Coordinator and Paul from Viasue to set up our timing software/hardware for working pits (and fueling sensors) with in lane relays and track call too.

Good to be back, eh!

Carrera Lap Timer

Hi all,

I was debating what section this should go in, but because this isn't so much about a full on race management system, I thought I'd go with more input from those in HO.

I see Carrera has what appears to be a stand alone lap timer. It is expandable to fit the 1/43 and 1/32 scale tracks. Looking at the limited information available on Carrera's site, it seems this is just a unit that straddles the side of the track and uses an infrared light barrier to time the laps.

Looking at a diagram available from a local retailer, the IR runs horizontally at two heights. I imagine this is to catch both scales of the cars.

Has anybody tried this for use on HO scale? If so, did it work? Any hiccups?

Newby trying to figure out routed track supplies

Like many here, I had an ho slot set as a kid and the bug to get back in the hobby has bit. Even though my kids are a bit older, all teens, I know they'll enjoy slot racing. We're having a house built and I'll actually have some space for a shop (finally) and there is a large play room in the basement. I was thinking in this area of the room which is 13' wide of setting up an L shaped track, 12'X4' with the other end of the L 8'X4' with 4 lanes.



I've been researching various websites and going through many pages of SCI HO routed tracks and think I have mostly figured out what I need, but wanted to run it by the pros as it seems new techniques and materials have been tried to make track building better and easier.

I'm planning to make a 3'X6' 3 lane practice track first. As far as materials:

I've read about MDF vs. PVC foam sheet. I see the appeal of foam sheet as you don't have to paint it which seems to offset the higher cost, but I haven't looked into the availability of PVC foam sheet and will likely use MDF for the practice track.

Rails, seems 0.045" 430 ss lashing wire is the way to go, lifetime supply for $15 + shipping, unless I'm missing something?

Power supply, I think I have a 24 vdc industrial supply lying around and could drop the voltage with diodes, if my memory is off and it's a 12 vdc supply, what is reasonably available and cost effective supply for a 4 lane ~80' long track?

Controllers, if I was racing I could see getting one of the solid state units, but X4 that's cost prohibitive so I was thinking a set of Professor Motor PMTR2115's

Cars, seems like the AFX mega-g is a good starting point, and I was thinking a set of GT-40's and a set of Porsche 962's in various livery would make for some fun racing with my kids and friends.

What am I missing?

PS, this is a great forum with a ton of great info!

Being the most distant profile, it is fairly easy to cut since it has fewer details to work around. The more foreground layers are painted on, the brush allowing more complex profiles to be created. Seams in the "greenery" portion of the backdrop (the sky is seamless) is hidden behind trees. Edges are fastened to the sky layer using rubber cement...excess adhesive cleans up easily and completely.

The poplar trees were made using 1" pink extruded foam. This is carved, painted and then covered in foam. The trunk is a dowel, roughed up with a razor saw edge and then painted with acrylics.

1/43 custom made monster truck 4X4

1/43 custom made monster truck 4X4

I think the best scale for this Monster truck is 1/43, but I used it on Carrera 1/32 track. The pictures show it next to an HO Blazer and a 1/32 Ninco Ford F150 Raid pickup truck. so it could be used as a 1/32 monster truck if you like it. As you can see it is plenty large enough to crush and 1/32 car around.

It is fitted with a Carrera guide flag from their older Exclusiv line. It could easily accept a modified drop arm guide flag. It is 4WD and has switch on the bottom to let the truck free wheel if you have kids or want to use it as a model or play truck. The motor is a 3-6V motor, so you will need to turn the power down or the motor will blow. That is extremely important. Or you can convert to a 12v motor and run it all day.

This auction is for the red ford truck, it is 4X4 Cool monster truck with a Ford F150 body in molded plastic.

I can take more pictures if you like, and I have more; at least 5 built and another 5 that haven;t been built yet. So if you are a monster truck lover these guys are perfect:)
