Re: RIP Nathan "Mudd" Collie

Hi All, yep, very sad day for the Nathan's family and all the Slot car fraternity that benefited from Muddy's involvement in the Slotcar scene for so many years.. I had the job of dismantling the raceway a few weeks ago. The Drag strip and 8 lane speedway was bought by Tony at Red Racer. The excelle...

Re: Plafit,...... Racing ????,... I DON'T think So,.... Sigh

I think you nailed it First Corner.. RTR keeps it simple.. just as all plastic cars come. It's a bit daunting for plastic guys to mount a body on little foam block glued in just the right position to a lexan shell.. The Scaleauto's just screw on like a 1/32 plastic so its familiar territory... Inter...

Re: Plafit,...... Racing ????,... I DON'T think So,.... Sigh

I hear you Stoo.. Trouble is, everyone except Hornsby is running the new 1700 "can am " chassis. It's a bargain at around $100. Comes with drilled lightweight wheels with glued and tried tyres, really robust front axle blocks and weight where you want it. Best of all it's a very good chass...

Re: NSW 2011 Plafit State Titles. Sat'. 1/32 & 1/24 Historic

Thanks for taking the time to do the report Stoo. Yes, the numbers were dissapointing but there was some good racing. Cant believe my luck (or more precisely, lack of) in 1/32 but by far the most amazing was the Retro finish with you, me and Troy. On the last bracket lane change we were all only met...

Re: N.S.W PLAFIT STATE TITLES November

Yep Stoo, Noel's on the money. Spend $23 and just buy a "tin plate" and convert... As a way of recouping your cash outlay I bet you could cut up the brass chunk and make some really interesting D3 bits.. I see a nice motor box base plate there with just a few holes here and there to remind...

Re: N.S.W PLAFIT STATE TITLES November

What can I say Stu... This is an in-house thing between you, the local drivers and the management of Hornsby Slotcars. At the Hornsby APC James made it quiet clear that "the J" chassis was a "hard body" chassis only and would not be eligible for the Lexan Group C state titles. In...
