Yes, race fans, it is time for the big 'ol stock cars to rumble around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Some pics of my drag track cars and times

Here are some pictures of my 1/64 1000' drag strip.

Autorennbahn Planner Question

They appear unclickable from the open screen and just are in code form if I click on them in finder.

HO stuff for 1/24 BRM or Scaleauto

Have some HO stuff, looking to trade for 1/24 BRM or Scaleauto cars.

Will not separate anything, has to go as a lot so may have to add some cash either way.


(copy pasted from another forum)

All the cars have all been run a few laps except the RRR Mustang, that is BNIB.

The 3 complete cars have super tires on them and might have newer auto world magnets I can't remember.

The bodies are all like new with no broken posts.

Lucky Bob's wheel and axle presses.

Lot of wheels, axles, and t-jet parts.

Asking $295 shipped. Feel free to make some offers, I am no longer using HO so no reason to have this stuff sitting around.

Does anyone have experiance with GOO GONE for track cleaner ?

I started using GOO GONE recently and have found that it's really cleaning the rails and track great.
I just spray on clean rag and its ready to be tossed in to the trash right away. It cleans so good it takes several rags to wipe clean because it lifts so much crud. I will continue to test this product and will do a follow up. So far so good.

Its what I have been using to clean the rails of my railroad and the locomotives run super smooth afterwards. Thats after 19 years of use so I highly reccommend it for the train rails. I use the spray and squirt bottles.

Any replies or suggestions would be gladly accepted, thanks in advance. :yo:

SlotForum Scratchbuilding

What do I have here?

I found out about a local race. It is a "timed" race in that you have to try to guess what time you will run on the track and stick to it as closely as possible. So performance is not a real issue...

The rules are simple. They give you the body (1/24), it has to have a 13D motor and PU tires on the rear.

I found this on my shelf under a NASCAR and while I can identify the motor (FOX FK130SH) I have no clue what the chassis is, the guide etc.

It doesn't really matter too much but I like the way it is built and if I do well may want to get more.

I didn't see any markings but I didn't check well...

Thanks in advance!

Wanted: Weldun 30t-32t crown gear

Looking to purchase a new in package Weldun 30T-32T Aluminum Crown (Face) gear (gold anodized color). Thanks.

"What's this purple junk in my potato salad?"

Rumors going 'round about my retirement that "all he does anymore is build slot cars" simply aren't true.
So, to prove it, here is my new recipe, right here on "Cookblog", er, "Slotblog" :D
 
Pablo: "What's this purple junk in my Potato salad?"
Chief Spuill: "Beets. Try it, you'll love it. My Panamanian wife made it"
"I don't like beets"
Big surprise, I found out I do like beets :shok:  Once you try this, I doubt you'll ever go back to grandma's potato salad with pickle in it  :bad:  :laugh2:
 
IMG_2781.JPG

The recipes for "Ensalada de Papas con Remolacha" I found online didn't have all the ingredients I like. The order of prep tasks made no sense, and had me juggling several things simultaneously. I ain't skilled like Rachel or Martha ya know. This is my version which has all the good stuff and is considerably simpler (dummyproof):

Pablo's Remolacha Potato Salad
Ingredients:
3 eggs
3 medium potatoes
1 medium onion
2 celery stalks
2 green onion stalks
2 carrots
1 - 15oz. can beets
1 - 10 oz can green peas
2/3 cup mayo
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 TSP white vinegar
1 TSP lemon juice
1 TSP salt
1 TSP pepper
1 TBSP mustard

1. Gather your tools:
- a big pot, preferably with a strainer top
- collander
- large plastic or wood bowl
- aluminum foil
- big wooden or plastic spoons

2. Trim any bad spots off potatoes, ends of the green onions, celery, and carrots, and outer skin of onion. Place all in collander and rinse. Remove everything from the collander - potatoes and carrots now go in the pot, all else set aside. Leave the collander right where it is - under the faucet.

3. Add water to pot until potatoes and carrots are submerged at least 1 inch, cover, and turn heat on high until boiling. Adjust heat to avoid bubble-over but keep it boiling until potatoes are soft when stabbed with a fork. This takes from 30 to 45 minutes.

4. Place eggs in a saucepan, cover with cool water 1 inch over. Use medium heat to slowly bring to a full boil, then cover and remove from heat. Set a timer for 12 minutes. Ding, transfer eggs to collander and run cool water over them for a couple minutes. Peel eggs and slice into small pieces, place in bowl.

5. Chop onion, green onion, and celery, place in bowl.

6. Open peas and beets, drain. Cut beets into small pieces, about 1/4 to 3/8". Place both in bowl.

7. When potatos are done, drain pot, place potatoes and carrots in collander and slice into pieces.

8. Add mayo, mustard, vinegar, evap. milk, lemon juice, salt, pepper to bowl. Gently mix together everything currently in the bowl. Don't whip it into a puree, just kind of blend it.

9. Fold in potato and carrot slices and, again, gently mix.

10. Cover bowl with alum foil and punch three holes in it for heat to escape. Place in refrigerator at least four hours or overnight and it's ready. You can now cover up the holes in the foil.
 
Makes about three times as much as you see in the photo.
 
Next week, Cheater's shrimp recipe. :dance3:

WOS chip toast?

Haven't used the sets much. All cars ran great out of the box. Went through all cars, trued tires, lubed and double checked everything, cars ran great. haven't ran them in a week and now one car seems to be shorting out the control unit, car will sporadically move on its own then stop while the green lights on the base unit flash and both controllers yellow lights.


With my limited experience I am leaning towards a bad chip.


Any input is greatly appreciated.


Thank you.

Advice for beginner

Hi everyone,
I'm transitioning to slot cars from the world of kyosho miniz rc cars in the hopes that my two young sons can get involved in the hobby with me. I figure that slot cars should be a much easier thing to pick up at their age. And also, slot cars are awesome. So I've been researching what's available and it's clear to me that Carerra is the best way for me to go. My current plan is to start with these two items:

The soon to be released Pure Speed Set 30191 and the Carrera 30367 Track Extension Set

I chose that set because it's got 3 cars ready to go and it also comes with a good amount of track. I chose that extension set because I really love the idea of being able to change lanes at multiple points on the track and I wanted to be able to have a little bit more track than what comes with the set. A few questions I have are:

Does this seem like a reasonable combo to get started with?
Will I be able to integrate that extension set into the Pure Speed set pretty easily?
Should I be purchasing tire upgrades ahead of time? I don't want the cars to slide all over and it seems like some things I've read suggest that the stock tires are not very good.
Is there a good video/videos that I can watch to learn how to put the track pieces together and to learn the basic maintenance for the track and cars? I'm hoping to be ready to go as soon as the set arrives.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts or suggestions you can offer. I'm super excited to be joining this community. Everything I've read and watched on Carerra slot cars looks absolutely amazing.

A rare Russkit Porsche? Euro issue?

Some of you may have noticed this Russkit Porsche on eBay a few weeks ago, that climbed to over $300... odd, because I had assumed it was a hand-painted version, and didn't really think much more about it. But it was a guy in France who won the auction and he asked me about it, because he's pretty sure it's a factory-painted version... based on a color scheme he's seen elsewhere, the original cockpit tape and colors on the interior, etc. Also the color fading between blue and black that is more typical of the European-issued Russkit cars - although I've only seen the F1 versions (see LASCM site for examples). 
 
Anybody ever seen one of these, or other Russkit sports/GT cars in these colors? 
 
Looking at his own photos, it certainly seems more likely to be a factory issue...

Perth HO Monthly Results.

Well another successful day of racing hosted by Dave at the Way Out West track.

The day started off with Dave doing some final prepwork on his track which if you've never seen before has only two straights!!

We started with the T-Jets which really come into their own on this track with heaps of sliding out and a close result with only 4 laps seperating 1st to 5th Garth just pipping Dave at the post.

From the T-Jets we moved to the Heavies, Mega G bodies with Hot Wheel bodies. They are called heavies for a reason, and on this twisty track, meant a lot of careful driving.

Again some real close racing, which really was the order of the day as a rule. 14 laps seperating the entire field - Geoff winning on 93 laps.

Going from the two slowest classes, we moved to the Super G+ and this was fairly closely contested, apart from Dave - who was nearly 30 laps clear of the field. Watching these cars move around the track is seriously draining!

To finish a successful day, we closed with the Turbo's. 30 laps may of covered the race, but 4 people finishing within 1 lap of each other made some exciting results. Dave again showing his class, winning quite comfortably.

Thanks Dave for hosting this round, and for everyone turning up, great to see Shaun return, and showing that he hasn't really lost it - even though one of his cars wheels had...

Next month's racing will be at Geoff's house, watch out for more details.

NINCO GT 4 FECHA 16/7/16

NINCO GT 4 FECHA 16/7/16


Nos encontramos nuevamente en esto tan divertido que es el slot y en este caso para la 4 fecha de la ninco gt


muchos autos nuevos y los muchachos preocupados por los cauchos  que perdieron mucho rendimiento desde la fecha 1 lo cual ya se esta pensando en cambios de cara a los proximos campeonatos



muchos cambios de puesta a punto para lograr algo de grip y que el auto no pierda tracción los que estábamos afuera agradecidos por el espectáculo los pilotos lo sufrían tratando de llevar los coches



torno de gomas, equipamiento a full buscando el óptimo rendimiento mientras también da tiempo para el scratch de autos como este gt 40



Tiempo para el cafe mientras el chelo y german elaboran estrategias ...



Parque cerrado donde se deja ver algo de las mecánicas empleadas




1 SERIE CLASIFICATORIA

 MARCO ( ford gt ) , CHELO ( MOSLER ) , JAVI ( MURCIELAGO ) , CLAUDIO ( SUPRA )






1 VIA

Marco y claudio salen al frente marco por adentro claudio por afuera  esta foto de la curva uno lo refleja aunque en la curva 3 marco se paso y apilo al mosler y al murcielago



Chelo y javi apenas mas atras le  siguen el tren a los punteros
Claudio y marco quedan por delante con 12 vts cada uno  y chelo y javi con 11 vts pero los lastres cambian todo.
luego de aplicar los lastres esto queda
primero chelo 9 , javi 8 , Claudio 7 , marco 3



VIA 2
SUPRA y FORD marcan el camino claudio y marco palo y palo siguen al frente y marcan nuevamente 12 vts cada uno
Chelo y javi le siguen de nuevo con 11 vts





VIA 3
poco a poco van ganando algo de grip los cauchos que ya casi por voto unanime no volveran a ser utilizados en esta categoria , es javi y el murcielago que encuentran la vuelta y salen al frente con 13 vts.
Chelo y claucio le siguen con 12 vts tratando de que no se escape demasiado
11 para marco que cierra el peloton






4 via

Triple empate entre chelo marco y javi , el piloto de mosler muy molesto con los cauchos y con razon total no tienen el grip deseado para nada .
12 vueltas para todos menos para el supra que queda con 11








2 SERIE CLASIFICATORIA

GERMAN ( gallardo ) , DIEGO ( porsche 997) , LEO ( audi R8 ) , VICTOR ( porsche 997 naranja )




1 via

El duelo esta planteado el porsche y el gallardo cabeza a cabeza victor y german a la punta y al duelo 12 vueltas para cada uno y un anticipo de lo que se viene
Leo se va adapatndo a la pista y a la categoria logra 10 vueltas , diego complicado queda con 9 vueltas






2 VIA

Victor aprovecha administra bien el auto y el grip quiza ayuda también que el porsche es algo mas chico y liviano que el resto dobla redondo . es el lunico que logra 13 vts.
Todo el peloton detras con 12 tratando de darle caza y que no se escape.





VIA 3
DIEGO Y GERMAN , porsche y gallardo van al frente para tratar de recuperar la ventaja que saco victor en la otra via 13 vueltas para ellos
Leo y victoraudi y porsche pierden un poco y quedan con 12 todo muy parejo




VIA 4
Y otra vez victor con su porsche logra una diferencia minima pero efectiva  13 vueltas para el y otra ves se adelanta un poco al resto que logra 12 pero define por sectores
Diego con el otro porsche 12,83 logra el segundo lugar 1 ,2 para porsche en esta via .
12,49 para german para quedar tercero y 12,33 leo para cerrar  el peloton













Resultados Parciales

1 : VICTOR    : 50,39   Porsche
2 : GERMAN : 49,49   Lamborghini GALLARDO
3 : DIEGO      :46,83   PORSCHE
4 : LEO          : 46,33  AUDI r8

5 : JAVI          : 44,61 Lamborghini DIABLO
6 : CHELO     :44,07  MOSLER
7 : CLAUDIO  : 42,22 TOYOTA SUPRA
8 : MARCO     : 37,99 FORD GT





PRIMERA FINAL

VICTOR , GERMAN , DIEGO , LEO



VIA 1 :
y en la arrancada se ve nomas que leo entra pasado con el audi  german al frente seguido de los porches.






pero para la entrada del tunel victor recupera la primera posición y asi hasta el final alto duelo clandestino
Es victor quien logra la mínima ventaja en esta primera via marcando 25 vueltas ,German logra 24 una charla con los pilotos nos comentaba que seguir al porche de victor era difícil muy firme para doblar y frenar el gallardo tenia un pelin mas en la recta pero arriesgaba mucho para poder pasarlo .
Diego le sigue como puede pero logra 23 vueltas mientras leo queda bastante mas atrás del pelotón de punta con 21 si bien no parece mucho la paridad es tanta que una o dos vueltas  son muy difíciles de recuperar





VIA 2 :
German arremete victor aguanta .
tratando de descontar lo perdido victor logra a ritmo muy bueno 25 vueltas y aventaja al porsche .
segundo queda diego con el otro porsche oficial  24 vts , para dejar tercero a victor con 23 vueltas.
Leo logra 23 vueltas pero ve como el peloton de punta se le escapa poco a poco






3 via :
VICTOR , GERMAN , DIEGO , el trio que sale en la punta 24 vts no se sacan diferenciamientras los porsches le tratan de meter presion sin exito al gallardo los tres quedan en la punta
Leo otra vez cierra el peloton con 23 vts si bien no pierde ritmo no puede seguir a los de punta y se retrasa poco a poco.








4 via
y el duelo esta en la misma foto victor escapa german lo persigue .. german lo persigue  y victor se equivoca, se juntan arriesga se equivoca german , mete presion recupera se equivoca victor asi varias veces hasta que german se equivoca y victor logra ventaja tranquilizadora esto es aprovechado por diego quien gana la via comodamente con 25 vts , tambien lo aprobecha leo que logra 24 vts pero por sectores se les adelanta
german y victor quedan con 24 vts a favor de  victor por sectores con media pista











2 FINAL

 JAVI , CHELO , CLAUDIO , MARCO








pasadito la supra ....




1 via :
Marco y su ford lideran en esta primera batalla clava 24 vueltas viene con  todo lo que la maquina le permite.
Javi le sigue con su murcielago con 23 vts
Chelo sigue peleando con el grip pero anda mejor y logra 22 vts
Claudio que entro pasadito en la primer curva logro solo 19 vts  luego de superar un parcial incendio en el pulsador , al poner el de repuesto no tenia freno mas un error en el cambio de via no las tuvo todas, muchas  cosas malas para una sola carrera.






2 VIA :
JAVI y CHELo  murcielago y mosler por la punta , ( menos mal que el murcielago es pesado eee ) palmo a palmo por lapunta y empate en 24 vts
marco pierde el tren y queda una vuelta detras con 23
Claudio mejor y ahora logra 22 vts











VIA 3:
Ahora el combate es de a 3 javi , chelo , marco  los tres adelante y por la punta tripleempate en 24 vts
claudio sigue complicado y a su ritmo 22 vts







4 via :
Marco y el ford aventaja al resto y se escapo por una vueltita 24 vts y casi casi 25

SRC customer service - Excellent!

I just wanted to provide some feedback on a recent purchase .
I bought a couple of F1s a little while ago , and found that the Ferrari ( Gilles #12 ) had a tampo issue on the front wing ( a slight misprint , as well as a misaligned print ) .
I contacted the original vendor ,no luck , so I went directly to SRC in Spain . I received a reply almost immediately , and they were kind enough to send me 2 replacement parts :thumb::thumb::thumb:.( I am in Canada by the way :canada::canada:)
Well , I am a very happy customer , they have my slot car money for life.:cool:

En esta ocasion tenia una carroceria suelta y despues de ver un par de trabajos de compañeros que habian vitaminado un par de pelotillas me anime a ello.El culpable (de buen rollo eh) http://pasionslot.mforos.com/155259[....]-seat-600-jtr-racing-made-in-spain/

AFX SRT Racing Sets

Question: So far I have only been able to find 2 racing sets that came with SRT cars (Super coupes and Restoration Hardware). Lots of SG+ and RT.
http://afxslotcarmuseum.wix.com/afx-...srt-sets/c110x

Are there any others????

If anyone has some and would be willing to send me photos to post on the museum site, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,
Charlie

I don't even know if I've ever run the scalextric cars. They certainly look new. The Pioneer has been run a little but never raced or crashed. Very nice group of cars!

Where to find Zip Grip Free

I finally ran out but now I can't find it anywhere when I google search. Anyone know who still stocks this? Thanks.

Oh No!

Good Day Folks!

Well, I decided to get back in to this hobby, because my Grandson took interest in a cheap battery powered set we got him for Christmas. I purchased the H.O. Scale AFX Super Coups set, and we been having a blast. I purchased the H.O. scale set, because I am also a model railroader. Now comes the Oh No! Now we are looking at the larger scale sets like 1/24 :help: I feel another hobby addiction coming on lol.

How to drive the Le Mans track - Mark Webber


 
This Red Bull video, which was posted to YouTube on Jun 16, 2016, was shot at Porsches Human Performance Centre at Silverstone Race Circuit, Northamptonshire, UK. Have no info on whether the track is still in place there, but I'd say it is doubtful. Any of our Uk members know?
