But this same person has gone BONKERS on buying slot cars and has purchased over 80 cars in the last 2 months. Most of them are like new but a bunch are vintage and some really need to be restored.
Who do you recommend reaching out to to send these cars to and have them restored, painted maybe, upgraded etc. Does anyone run a service to do this? Perhaps some of the great minds can huddle on this and render their suggestions

NSR 997 and NEW Model DUE SOON
1185AW Porsche 997 McDonald's #55 - Belcar Endurance Championship - 24h Zolder 2011 Retail £75.00
Ok no surprises with this car but I must say I think it looks a bit cool with the Macky Dee's Sponsorship on it!
What is new however is NSR's first offering of their take of the Ford GT40. Often referred to as the MKI to differentiate it from the MKII which NSR have been successfully selling for a few years now, the MKI has a completely different rear bodywork on it. Whether this is an alteration to the MKII tooling or not only time will tell but a glancing at these pictures I think they have caught these often difficult to model lines of this car just about right. NSR have gone back to their tradition of releasing newly introduced models in kit form first, so we will have to wait a little longer before the fully finished models to arrive. Remember that most NSR cars are bought by slot racers who often like to decorate and put their own cars together, and being in kit form has the benefit of a lower price over the assembled models.

So I purchased this Digital car (VW beetle Kafer Group 5 race 1, and need an analog version. Carrera cars that I have known in the past have always been very easily downwardly compatable with still using the factory plugs. As it turns out this new car, that cannot be done. I am happy to sell the digital version of this car at the price of an analog. or 33.00 US plus shipping. Thank you.

Edit: looking at the picture again, it appears the solder failed as there is a decent amount of solder on both pieces.
I am hoping to get the cars run the weekend of the 6th. This weekend it tough since everyone is on holiday. One of the locals scheduled a race for the 6th, so I am not sure if the drivers will be available on the 6th. Perhaps they will be free the 7th. If not, I know we can get them together the weekend of the 13th. I waited to schedule it since it can sometimes be dicey determining when the cars will arrive.
They look really good on this pic , but I guess only a few cars will be nicely done & the rest will look toy like?
To bad they will more likely 1/48 & not 1/43 (unless they have a scale change?) & still using guide pins...
Anybody have info if Artin is making cars more to 1/43 scale or still "stock" at around 1/48..?
Anyways thought I share this with you guys
Artin link--> http://www.artin.com.hk/About-Us.html
Look at the cars on these sets they look much better then what Artin done before Specially the las one (super loop speedway)
Too bad they stop producing their 1/32 scale we could all buy some good 1/32 track for cheap price...:ohwell:
Chevrolet Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo Concept: First Look
Looks like I missed a lot.
Anyway, I will try to get back to posting in the history section, adding pics of cool cars and asking stupid questions.
A healthy, safe, and happy Thanksgiving to all.
A new set would be great.
Si può senza dubbi definire un “paradiso delle slot car”. Al momento il centro è ancora in fase di ampliamento, ma dispone già di 3 piste in legno: una 8, una 6 e una 4 corsie, tutte con sistema di cronometraggio IST; un ampio spazio con sala relax, cucina, tv, sala box e tanto altro. La prossima pista che verrà installata da Mr Alan Smith, direttore del centro, sarà una "drag strip" per le gare di accelerazione, ma sicuramente non finirà lì.
I'm planning for adding the Vintage Class with 4 1/2 chassis to my racing classes at upstatespeedway.weebly.com.
As I look at cars to stock....I'm noticing the 77-78 Firebird body is conspicuously absent. What gives!?!? That's the Smoky and the Bandit model and is only one of the most recognizable cars of history excepting maybe a Corvette.
I have a guy willing to build a mold but before I go that route....is there not already a source for such an obviously deserving car? Please!?
Picked these up from a collector in New Zealand. He listed the bodies as George Turner models. One chassis is stratch built and the other is a Monogram 1/32 F-1/Midget chasses.
I figured that at worst, I'd had a the nice Monogram chassis under the Ferrari to use for another project. After they arrived, I decided that both cars had such a nice "hand made" charm to them, I going to just clean, lube, replace the rear tires with Paul Gage ures' and run 'em!
I'd bet a substantial sum of money that there's not a single person reading this who knows, not even PdL or John Cukras. Am I wrong?
If you want to learn just what Giammarino did, scroll on down...

A photo of all 9 Carrera DTMs that will soon (or have already been) available in North America. I've gotten the last 2 i'm able to get from the original 6 coming now to the warehouse arriving before the end of the year.
The “sprint” format is not my favorite because the very short heats coupled with my inexperience on the circuit make it tough for me to develop the rhythm needed to turn fast and consistent lap times. Heat length was to be 70 seconds for the Scalextric Trans Am class and 10 laps for all other races.As usual, the race director, Billy Strange, would seed the competitors into groups based upon skill level using past performance and a bit of discretion.Billy’s success as a race director is exemplified by the fact that racing is always close.Effective seeding encourages the novice and expert alike creating a race environment that is competitive and fun.European lane rotation was used with the number of sit-outs, if any, determined by the number of participants in each group.The finishing order of each group was determined by totaling the number of points amassed by each racer.Points were awarded in each heat based upon finishing position in the heat 5,3,2,1 for first through fourth respectively.
Scalextric Tran Am
There were actually two Trans Am classes for participants to choose from. The Scalextric Trans Am class allowed for almost no modifications from the cars in box stock form.These cars were equipped with relatively “tame” motors resulting in very drivable machines.As mentioned above, the heat length would be 70 seconds with European rotation.In addition, there was an eight second “break-out” for this class.Eight racers, including myself, participated in this race.For this race, Billy chose to run only a single group.Each of the eight participants ran each of the four lanes and had four sit-outs.
My loaner was a competitive replica of the Orange #13 1970 Trans Am Camaro driven by Warren Agor. I was selected to run on lane #1 for the first heat and rotated to lane #3 then #4, then #2 and sat out for the final four heats.During sit-outs, participants were required to act as turn marshals.I received a “pass” on several heats so that I could record images.Even though the Scalextric Trans Am class was designed as an almost “box stock” category, on this evening, it attracted its share of experienced drivers. Hot shoes included Billy Strange, and the three Mikes - Wright, Gummitt, and Davis and others.It would be safe to say I was the least experienced of the group.
My race strategy was to drive consistently in each heat and hope that more experienced drivers got involved in “heat of the moment” wrecks or succumb to unforced errors. I do not recall the details of finishing order in each heat but I do remember finishing second in one heat and third in at least one other.I recall that the first two heats ran quite smoothly.Early in the third heat (#4 lane) my car lost power.It turned out to be a broken lead wire.Bill, one of the owners, got right to work and fixed the problem before the next heat.As I mentioned above, lane 4 is the “slowest” and I was running 4th of 4 but gaining on third place.I don’t think a third place finish in this heat would have had an impact on my overall placing.It would have only added a single point to my total.In the end, I was satisfied with my performance on an unfamiliar track with an unfamiliar car.I ended up finishing sixth of eight but this is somewhat deceiving.Billy had a very fast car but “broke-out” at least twice relegating him to seventh place.
Trans Am – Modified
I noticed that in practice some Trans Am cars simply blew by me down the straight sections of the track and were able to negotiate corners more effectively. Was I that bad of a driver? Could be, but many of these rides were Trans Am cars in “sheep’s clothing”.The modified Trans Am rides were nearly a second per lap faster than the Scalextric Trans Am cars.Upon further observation I noticed that the modified cars were lower and had “hot motors” to boot.Actually, I have been aware of the “modifieds” since my last race at Sidewinder back in August of this year.Both Craig Holsted (Camaro) and Rob Marshal (Cougar) ran their “modifieds” in the “Classics” races.In fact, I battled it out with Rob in the “Classics” limited category and managed to come out on top.Of course, my Ford Mk IV loaner had the advantage of a lower center of gravity.Since that race, both Craig and Rob have dialed in their “modifieds” improving performances by several tenths of a second per lap.
The modified Trans Am class attracted eleven participants and racers were seeded into two groups (6 and 5 respectively). Races were both exciting and fun to watch.In the first race, David Helmer, Jeremy Schaeffer and Larry Stevens finished first through third respectively.In the “main event” (second race), Justin Colvin, barely out of diapers, whipped the field with a slower car besting Craig Holsted and Bill Strange.
Several modifications are allowed in the Group C class. This coupled with the fact that the cars are quite low and wide yields rides with superior handling characteristics.However, their very high power to weight ratio requires a bit more finesse in order achieve consistent lap times.My loaner was a very competitive Mazda 787B.Someone commented that the car belonged to Jan Strange and that the car was capable of running in the 7.1 second range.I couldn’t come close to that benchmark.My best lap during the race was 7.397.Being the curious type, I looked at the history of this car by reviewing a few posts of Group C races of the past.Sure enough I found that Jan turned a four lap average of 7.152 in qualifying this car and finished second in the second seeding of Group C cars in July of this year.
The Group C race attracted 19 participants. The most popular ride was the Lancia LC2 along with a sprinkling of Porsche 956/962s, Mazda 787Bs, Toyota 88Cs, Sauber Mercedes C9s and a Jaguar XJR.Billy seeded racers into four groups (Novice had four participants; the other three groups had 5 participants).I was right where I belonged – in the Novice Group.Even so, the Novice group was not exactly novice.In fact, the only novice was the writer.My fellow competitors included very familiar faces from prior visits including Rob Marshall, Joe Hiner and Ron Tilford.I knew it was going to be a long evening.I felt pretty comfortable with the loaner and ran a pretty good race against more experienced drivers.My drive of the Mazda 787B was very competitive with the Rob and Joe, the first and second place finishers respectively.My fast lap time of 7.397 was competitive with both Rob (7.372) and Joe (7.484).I managed a respectable third place finish driving consistently and avoiding “self-inflicted” wounds.
After my “novice” race, I stayed to watch and marshal to the bitter end. The next two races featured more experienced drivers.Craig Holsted, Paul Hendricks, and David Helmer finished first through third respectively in their race.Mike Wright, Larry Stevens and John Roberts finished first through third respectively in their race.It is interesting to note that with the exception of Larry who ran a fast lap of 7.123, all others ran fast laps in the 7.3-7.4 second range.What this tells me is that for the novice and next two races fast lap times were within a whisker of each other and the winners were the pilots who drove the most consistent races.
The final race of the evening included the top tier of Group C cars/drivers. With the exception of Justin, all were running Martini Lancia LC2s.For the spectator, it was hard to tell which car belonged to whom. Fast lap times were all in the 7.0 range.In fact, Bill Strange broke the seven second barrier with a fine 6.953 second lap.This was a great race to watch with some very fine head to head battles.In the end, only a single point separated first from third.I would dub the finish as a “Strange sandwich”.Billy finished in the top spot with Justin Colvin second and Bill third.
As usual, I had a great day at Sidewinder. A big thanks to Bill and Billy for competitive loaners!It was fun racing again with a great bunch of guys.
I have seen the 1/32 scale Sprint cars on different threads/web pages and I am interested in trying my hand at building one. I am wondering if their are any spec's around and tips as well.
Would anyone care to share a detailed drawing on the jig or bends that are involved for the wire cage and nerf bars? Sharing pic's of you cars would be good.
Any links and a component list would be good. Looking forward to your responses.
Don't think this video has ever been posted at Slotblog and that's a serious omission that needs to be corrected.
'Finish Line' was Edo's first solo exhibit and was hosted at the Pack Galleria D'art in Milan, Italy, from November 27, 2008 through January 24, 2009. Here are the exhibit notes with the accompanying pictures as shown on the museum's website:
"With his first solo exhibition at Galleria Pack, the Swiss artist Edo Bertoglio will introduce the public to the fetish obsession of Slot Cars, transforming the gallery into a multi-sensorial space in which several “unusual” cars become creators of pathos and the imaginary. The path through the exhibition space is thus transformed into a long chain of pit stops and startups that mirror the dynamic movement of a peculiar obsession, in turn a paradigmatic model for all obsessions.
Slot Cars are generally considered the scale models designed to race on modifiable track sets equipped with electric strips that provide the cars with power (the kind of racing sets many of us have played with when we were young).
Edo Bertoglio (Lugano, 1951) is a central reference point for the 1980s New York Outkast culture. After earning a degree in direction from the Conservatoire du Cinema in Paris, he moved first to London and then to New York. In 1976 he became close with Andy Warhol, collaborating as a photographer for Interview Magazine, and providing a indiscreet eye on the excesses, successes and falls of the Downtown Scene, chronicling the most dynamic, transgressive, courageous and especially inventive and genial. It is a video-photographic tale that found in Manhattan its eclectic creative apex. Later, it led to the cinematographic project DOW NTOWN 81, the film through which Bertoglio detailed the life and times of Jean-Michel Basquiat and a new way of interpreting the connection between art and life.
In 2005, Face Addict became the film through which Bertoglio reconnected with that historical moment through the characters (survivors in the truest sense of the word) who gyrated between music, visual arts, cinema, journalism, literature, fashion and all the best the metropolis had to offer prior to the tragic unfolding of events like AIDS.
That same title could well be transformed into Car Addict, because from the point of view of obsessions, nothing has changed. First there were the real bodies of free and borderline existences; today there are the inorganic bodies of electric cars that live the same precarious existence of those who choose speed, risk and winding curves instead of the straight, simple and narrow. Bertoglio bases form and concepts in the parameters of an obsessive and catalyzing theme, reaching beyond the limits of pure enjoyment, commissioning the creation of cars that then become part of his private collection, entering into the alleyways of fetish and psychoanalysis that govern any private passion. The indiscreet photographer’s eye has a field day with these chromed skins, model details and threaded abstractions of the racing cars. But it does not forget the views of the impassioned, nor the crazy vein that pulses within a community of experts and bonafide enthusiasts. From the transgressive bodies of Americans to the in-scale prototypes, the passion for the anomalous margins of existence, for forms of expression in which art and life blend with perfect solutions for continuity, has remained unchanged.
Micro or macro, true or false, static or dynamic: the resolved counterbalance is like the beating heart of an obsession that resembles the cult of women’s shoes. Bertoglio puts an aura on a world open to just a few experts, constructing images on top of pure imagination. He evokes historical futurists, most notably the airplane painters like Tato and Gerardo Dottori.
He reminds us of the sculpture of Gianni Piacentino and Maurizio Mochetti, adding a sublime link with reality. But first and foremost he reminds us of the approach used by Carlo Mollino, a multi-sensorial artist who loved women and fast speeds with the same obsessive intensity. It is yet more proof that the creative pathway Bertoglio has opened (first with organic bodies, and today with inorganic bodies) possesses the coherence of an epochal project."

I've heard that if the proxy includes both routed wood tracks and plastic tracks, then Supergrips are a better choice because they will stand up better to the plastic tracks (some say that Ultragrips will shred or wear to the point of not being effective on plastic tracks). If the proxy includes only routed wood tracks, then I've heard that Ultragrips should last a proxy race series.
I've also heard that from a truing standpoint, Ultragrips are much more difficult to true than Supergrips, due to the fact that the softer tire compound on Ultragrips complies too easily to the sanding/grinding surface to be easily sanded/ground.
Any opinions/recommendations for which of the two tires types would be better for proxy races?
Primero ,lo primero,la mire y me dijo..............99,9..baje ,volvi a subir y me dijo otra ves..99,9 KG...VAMOOOOOOOS
Ahora , (hoy no madrugue), la cronica de anoche,murmullo con un misil metio 4,40 y esta ves nadie pudo sacarselo,tiempaso con un auto muy estable y que sorprendio a todos no por el auto en si que ya habia andado muy bien el martes sino porque la pista no parecia estar en condiciones para esos registros, nadie se habia ni asercado a esos tiempos y mucho menos a los del martes,muy buena performance de piloto y auto.Pole para pablo "murmullo" fuentes
La carrera arranco desde la primera vuelta con mucha pelea , a pesar de los extraordinarios tiempos de murmullo todos querian darle lucha ,en la primera serie debutaron Tomas y Bautista Liset, no es una pista facil pero los dos nuevos fueron mejorando vuelta a vuelta su desempeño, ademas palmo el motor de Kimi, con miles de vueltas en su haber este motor tiene no menos de2 años y lo usaron todos los invitados que pasaron por aqui , ademas de haberlo corrido luis maria tres campeonatos completos.Ya en la 2da serie empesaron a aparecer los que se querian acomodar bien arriba,D.Duda,Ale, Lisan yMateo giraban y giraban sin sacarce ni media vuelta, asi fueron las cuatro vias al punto de quedar despues de las cuatro vias separados por apenas metros,y obligando a los de la tercera serie a esforsarce para no ser superados,ya la pista se sentia mucho mas firme y se largo la ultima serie con los mas rapidos en clasificacion.
Sorpresa cuando en la largada se quedo plantado el auto de Luis Maria,ya en clasificacion,habia girado una vuelta y se agarro el motor, rapidamente solucionado giro unas pocas vueltas en las que metio el segundo tiempo lejos de murmullo.Toque de Kimi ,muy atenta a la largada y arranco.................a correrlos.
Pedro,Perazzo y murmullo ,giraban a un ritmo infernal sabiendo los tiempos que habian metido en la serie anterior, no se podia dar ninguna ventaja.Giro tras giro el ultimo se acercaba a los 3 que hacian punta en la serie, al cabo de las 4 vias ya Luis maria tenia la punta, asi estaban los 8 que peleaban:
Luis M...42 v
y mas atras los dos nuevos Bauti y Tomy, ya el motor de kimi estaba out.
para la segunda pasada TODOS absolutamente todos ,tocaron los autos, no se podia dejar nada librado al asar,....en un momento del tiempo permitido para reparar alguien dijo ...Que silencio ,nadie abre la boca y es verdad todos trabajaban buscando esa vueltas mas para pelear arriba.
La carrera se mantuvo en los mismos parametros vuelta tras vuelta y serie tras serie, a tal punto que,por rotura de Lisandro, Mateo logro superarlo y fue el unico cambio de posiciones en toda la segunda pasada,los puestos fueron los mismos que despues de la primera tanda en todas las posiciones con la salvedad de esta contada aqui.
muy linda carrera ,con unas cuantas piñas muy fuertes y que hicieron temer por la integridad de los autos incluso el que venia punteando que golpeo a fondo un auto salido en pleno peralte a la entrada de la recta principal,teniendo que parar a arreglar la carroceria por un par de vueltas.
La bandera a cuadros dejo este resultado.
se sintio la ausencia de varios pilotos, Manuel,Pablo Gorosito(clasico y carrera ...es mucho) y Andres ,que segun dichos del pera se tomara un descanso.
Termino la fiesta del viernes y ya varios preguntaron si el martes pueden venir temprano..........................FALTA MUCHO PARA EL VIERNES?
CHorizos a la pomarola del pera, coca y mucho automodelismo con amigos.........Abrazo
