Trackmate sensors.

I am thinking about getting a trackmate drag race set up. My question is has anyone used or know anything about the "horizontal IR beem" type sensors that are available for this system? Im familiar with the photo eyes and have a 2 lane Carrera track so the guide flag sensors are out of the question. I really like everything the Trackmate system has to offer and am just wondering if anyone has flexed the options when it comes to the sensors.

controllers what ohm?

Boy it's been probably over 16 years since I did anything with the ho controllers and I forgot what ohms worked good.

I used to have the econo parma ones anyone make anything better that's comparable now a days?

I think I used 60ohm and maybe 45 or 35 I don't remember it's been so long.

I don't mind getting 2 ohm types to run different types of cars better I like to run T jet types and magna tractions and the mega G's so far since I started getting back into the cars with my newly built layout.

So any info on controllers of today would be great... I still have my one electronic turbo HO controller but want a few good cheapo ones that others can use.

THANKS

driver stations

I finally got the wood flat of my track up. The layout of the track is 6' by 10'3" sitting on a 6'9" by 10'6" table top. Now the first 2' is used by the monitor keyboard and mouse. leaving the driver side of the track at 8'6" for four drivers. I hadn't realized this is cramped. I am thinking of using the present section for three drivers instead with the fourth then residing around the corner at the back end.

What other solutions for 4 lane tracks have you guys come up with? I can see now why 12-16 foot length tracks are common. I am trying to resolve this before paint and wire plumbing.

1/24 motor conversion

Alot has been written lately about how 1/24 cars run with the 1/32 power supply. I never planned to upgrade the PS from the stock 1/32 wallwart so I knew I had to downgrade the motor to 12V. If I knew it was this easy I would have bought some 1/24 cars sooner.

Got my 1st 1/24 car (Porche) along with 2 other cars from friends to convert. The motor of choice is Professor Motors Fox 1032 motor. (Real cheap) I believe it's rated at 25K. The motor is almost a straight bolt in. The ONLY thing required is to elongate the holes on the motor pod to match the motor. My only concern was that the rear of the motor is no longer supported by the pod and the screws are the only thing holding the motor in place. A few people have run them like this apparently w/o problems. I wanted alittle more support so I cut a small plate out of brass to mate to the outside of the chassis to beef up the motor mounting. Loctite the screws and I am good to go.

94 foot painted Carrera track, stock 13.8V walwart. Track is spread out so there is alot of room to stretch the legs.

Stock out of the box:
Weight: 215G
Downforce: 505G :eek:
Best Time: 10.98 lap (most laps 11.1-11.2)
Car was full throttle the entire track with exception of 2 blips on the throttle in the hairpins. Slid alittle bit but mostly stuck.

Removed rear mag only:
Downforce: 407G
Best Time: 12.09 (most laps 12.4-12.6)
Full throttle only in the straights, slipping and sliding everywhere else. Even the mini esses I had to creep through. Car was not fun to drive.
In all fairness to the no mag test, the tires haven't been touched and really need to be trued as it has a slight thump in the rear tires.


12V conversion:
Wait for it..................................O.M.G.
I had to cut the power down to 60% to get anything even close to what looked like a race car instead of a rocketship...:lol: Needless to say I put the rear mag back in and this beast spins the tires in a straight line. Car will drift with the best of em with the mag in with all this extra power.
Best Time: 9.71 (most laps 9.8-10.0)

In all seriousness, did I need the extra power. In may case yes. My track is so spread out with a 20 ft straight and no curves on top of each other the cars have room to run. The stock motor took forever to get down my back straight. Would the average home user need it. Probably not.

:cheers:
Dave

manitouguy's Blog - a bit more reference for 'project alfa'


this time from one of my all time favorite books ... Luigi Orsini's 'Mille Miglia - una corsa Italiana'



being a bit lazy (as the articles are a bit longer for each race year, and my book only in Italian) I have just scanned the pages
showing the Alfa - cation descriptions will need to be translated smile.gif

a few of the photos are larger, uncropped versions of the previously posted ... but I have included them as they really
show the cars in context on the road too - would have been brilliant to have been around back in the day to experience this race
in person each year!!

again, from the 1949 race



and from the 1950 race







there you go Mr. G - I will keep my eyes peeled for furhter info .. I will check some magazines to see if any are from 1950 that
might have a feature article ...

keep whittling

I need a driver

My car needs a driver I'm having trouble finding one and was wondering what you guys use.



The 1st guy is a Dart he is too wide, the 2nd guy is Immense Miniatures he is much too long, and looks out of scale to me (somewhere in between 1\32-1/24), the 3rd is Dart of course he won't fit but looks closer to scale.

Any ideas where I can get a driver?

SlotForum Scratchbuilding

Plastic chassis design principles

Hello,

I have an opportunity to work with engineering and design students at my local University and they need real world engineering projects to complete as an assignment towards their final qualifications.

So I thought "why not get them to design a racing chassis for slot cars - especially for scratch builders?"

As they have access to a 3D printer and a 120 ton injection moulding machine they should be able to get their design to pre-production sample stage so we can test run some.

SO I am looking for some guidance so I can give them a useful spec to work to.

My initial thoughts are that I have quite a few Yank Tanks that I would like to take off their Carrera Chassis and place on a new chassis that would make them go embarrassingly fast (embarrassing for the GT cars they would race against that is!).

I already put some of these type of cars onto chase-cars chassis which are awesome fun and make the cars handle like turbocharged jellies - GREAT FUN but the exact opposite of what I am trying to achieve with this project ohmy.gif

I already have a Plymouth Roadrunner on a Slot.It HRS chassis and that puts in some very good lap times compared to GTs. So my new chassis has something pretty good to live up to.

Anything is possible design-wise so a motor pod is on the cards - sprung if necessary. A variable wheelbase obviously.

I am struggling to understand some principles however...

1) How far forward (if at all) of the front axle line should the guide pivot point be? (bear in mind these chassis will be designed for medium-to-long wheelbase cars)
2) If the guide is on a drop arm - what is the optimum rear pivot point and should it be on the chassis or the motor pod?
3) What is best - a standard guide, a sprung guide or a drop arm? (and why)
4) Should the chassis be stiff or flexible or stiff in one axis and flexible in another? And is this different if there is a motor pod?
5) Should the front wheels be fixed or steering? If fixed should they be independent stub axles (maybe adjustable for toe-in) or a single axle?
6) Should the body be mounted rigidly or should there be a facility to allow body roll and should this be completely loose or would a spring dampening mechanism help?
7) Should the front axle be rigidly held or should it be able to float up and down - and if floating should this be damped?
8) Should the rear axle height be adjustable (by means of canting the motor pod for example)?

I would like to able to give the students a decent design brief and point them at the right body of knowledge as I doubt they have any understanding of slot cars. It would be a shame to waste the opportunity to develop a competitive chassis for scratchbuilders - what a waste if their chassis turns out to be a dog and what fun if it turns out to be a giant killer!

Any help and advice most gratefully received smile.gif

GP Chine-Libres 3: Daniel Ricciardo le plus rapide sous la pluie de Shanghai

Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull) s'est montré le plus rapide ce samedi matin à Shanghai sous la pluie. En 1'53''958, l'Australien a devancé d'une demi-seconde Felipe Massa (Williams) et Romain Grosjean (Lotus). Les pilotes présents en piste ont tous tourné en pneus intermédiaires lors de cette séance. Jules Bianchi a été le plus assidu avec un total de 14 boucles pour un 17e temps à quatre secondes du leader. A noter que Rosberg, Magnussen, Alonso et Hamilton n'ont pas signé de chrono à l'approche des qualifications qui devraient aussi se disputer sur piste mouillée.

Maldonado, quel brise-fer !

Déjà pénalisé après son rodéo sur Esteban Gutierrez lors du dernier Grand Prix de Bahreïn, Pastor Maldonado a encore fait des siennes ce vendredi à Shanghai lors des premiers essais libres de la quatrième manche de la saison. Le Vénézuélien a plié sa Lotus à l’entrée des stands, privant son écurie d’une heure de précieux roulage.

Maldonado-crash-Lotus_w484

Comme si Lotus avait besoin de ça ! En difficulté depuis le début de saison, en déficit de roulage sur une E22 encore plombée par ses problèmes de jeunesse, l’écurie d’Enstone paie en plus les erreurs de Pastor Maldonado. Le Vénézuélien est pourtant dans le collimateur des commissaires après son incartade de Bahreïn où il a harponné Esteban Gutierrez qui sortait des stands. Le Mexicain était parti en tonneaux, l'image faisant le tour du monde. Le pilote Lotus partira même avec cinq places de pénalité sur la grille de départ dimanche en Chine et a en plus perdu deux points sur son permis. Mais rien n’y fait, l’ancien champion GP2 a de nouveau réalisé un festival ce vendredi lors des premiers essais libres du Grand Prix de Chine ! Pour le plus grand bonheur des bêtisiers…

L’ancien pilote Williams a d’abord montré de formidables aptitudes à imiter Gaston Lagaffe. Distrait visiblement par les nombreux boutons sur son volant, le coéquipier de Romain Grosjean a oublié de garder un œil sur la piste lors de la première séance. La sanction n’a pas tardé… "M'enfin", aurait dit le personnage de Franquin !

Mais elle ne riait plus du tout quelques heures plus tard. Car première cette saison, l’ancienne écurie Renault était épargnée par les problèmes et comptait bien en profiter pour enfin faire un pas en avant. Raté ! La deuxième séance s’est arrêtée pour son deuxième pilote après à peine plus d’une demi-heure sur l’heure et demie prévue. La cause ? Une entrée beaucoup trop optimiste dans la voie des stands qui a conduit le Vénézuélien à bloquer ses pneus et à plier sa E22 contre le mur.

Grosjean était heureusement là. Le Français a bouclé 36 tours et s’est montré le plus assidu en piste. Il a également enfin placé une Lotus dans le top 10 grâce à un neuvième chrono à plus d’une seconde de Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), vainqueur des deux dernières courses en Malaisie et à Bahreïn. Le Britannique a devancé unFernando Alonso en verve. Pour ses débuts en tant que team principal de Ferrariquatre jours après la démission de Stefano Domenicali, Marco Mattiacci a vu l’Espagnol réaliser le meilleur chrono de la première séance puis se placer à moins de deux dixièmes du pilote Mercedes. Rassurant mais à confirmer lors d’une journée de samedi où Maldonado tentera sans doute cette fois de se faire oublier. Soutenu par PDVSA, la société pétrolière vénézuélienne, l’ancien pilote Williams apporte un chèque de 40 millions de dollars à Lotus. On ne sait pas encore si cela comprend le budget carrosserie…

DYI rails

While I was at Bob's the builders store, I noticed these end caps and thought they might work for a cleaner looking track rail. You first have to bend them in a circle for a while so it will help maintain its shelf. They slide right over the standard Carrera rail support. I used gorilla clear tape to fasten them to the supports. They work very well. Now I have to decide how to paint them

5RS "Karim BERSET" fil rouge 8/10



Bonjour amis sloteurs,
Cette huitième édition de la "groupe 5 Sideways", fil rouge du DRS saison 6, a été placé en hommage à notre cher ami disparu accidentellement Mardi dernier 15 Avril  à un carrefour d'une petite localité non loin de Lausanne.  Karim Berset a été violement percuté par une camionnette de livraison qui lui aurait refusé la priorité.  "Not'Suisse" comme j'aimais l'appeler souvent au DRS, rentrait du travail sur son scooter quand il a trouvé la mort vers 16h20. Aujourd'hui, outre notre peine ici au club, nous pensons tous à sa famille, ses proches et le petit Adrien que nous connaissons bien ici au club. Karim nous ne t'oublierons pas ...J'ai retrouvé quelques clichés. Une jolie photo souvenir ...

Karim aurait du être présent à cette course pour laquelle il avait préparé quelques 7 ou 8 voitures pour essais avant de choisir l'ultime "bête de course". Le DRS dédie cette épreuve à Karim, membre du bureau et fondateur associé ...super pilote de slot racing, assidu à presque toutes les épreuves.  "Mon p'tit Suisse" n'hésitait pas à venir depuis Lausanne faire une course un soir et repartir en Suisse vers 22h30 pour reprendre le boulot à 7 heures le lendemain matin. Et ça mes amis, presque toutes les semaines depuis 3 ans, précisons le. ....Moi je dis chapeau et respect à Mr Karim. Un grand monsieur censé, assidu, objectif avec beaucoup d'humour et sur qui on pouvait compter. En tant que président, je l'ai souvent consulté à titre personnel concernant des projets ou des conflits. Son avis m'était précieux et nous étions souvent "en phase" comme il disait. Son absence à cette course a laissé un vide. Tout le monde ici au club est encore sous le choc. On fait la course sans avoir trop conscience, on y croit pas, c'est une absence passagère, il doit avoir une réunion, il garde Adrien ...bref, plein de motifs comme ceux ci nous aveuglent je pense. Tous les pilotes de slot racing qui l'ont connu, à Dijon ou ailleurs, peuvent témoigner de la gentillesse et sympathie de notre ami.  La course en son honneur a quand même eu lieu.  "Allo mon bon Karim, voici quelques photos pour toi ..."

Tu vois Karim, il n'y a pas de Ferrari 512BB sur le plateau. Je suis sûr que tu aurais pris ta magnifique 512 toi, hum?. D'ailleurs, je vais m'en procurer une de ce pas en souvenir et je te la ferais voir toute décorée  ...un jour sûrement.  Pendant que nous y sommes, regarde aussi tes potes, les gueux qui ont gagné ce soir, ainsi que leurs voitures sur le podium. Non mais t'as vu la dégaine ? ...ksi ksi ksi
Didier remporte l'épreuve sur BMW devant les deux compères Jean Daniel sur Porsche et Cetéphane sur BMW.  Le scratch remarquable de 9'837 est signé ce soir par Cetéphane sur BMW.  Mais note bien mon cher Karim que j'ai vu un autre adhérent claquer un 9'793 aux essais en semaine ...mais chut c'est une indiscrétion de ma part, j'aurais pas du !    Pour terminer, voici les résultats complets de cette "5RS Karim BERSET" avec des temps époustouflants et très peu de sorties. Le gégène est proposé à la suite, bien sûr.  Voici les deux tableaux et je te reprends après Karim ...

...Bon, sur ces belles paroles, nous allons te quitter Karim mais rassure toi, on va se voir bientôt. Nous partons à Lausanne Mardi matin à 3 ou 4 pour te faire un petit coucou. Tu vois, t'as pas voulu venir et bien nous on va y aller, épicétou.  A bientôt, on t'aime tous ici.  Chers lecteurs, laissez lui un message dans le cadre ci-dessous. Je vous remercie beaucoup ...Paul JOURNET

I generally love Italian sports cars. I understand this will be the model that Alfa returns to the US with.

Is this lotus based?

What is the consensus on the styling?
