Re: SSME 4 Hour Enduro - Retro CanAm, 3 June 2018.

My vote is for the 4hrs.

I've got a car club run on the 3rd, but I'll give that a miss.
Kevin is a goer, so Ric's Raiders is in.

Re: SSME 4 Hour Enduro - Retro CanAm, 3 June 2018.

Oooops!!!
This race is on Mother's Day, and looks like my 'powers to be' have over-ruled me, so now I'm unfortunately a non-starter.
Mother-in-law, wife, daughter, and granddaughters out vote me...
:shock: :(

Re: Australian Slot Car Publications

The scanning gets a bit boring, and I can't concentrate on it for more than a couple of hours at a time, so I scan some, then edit/format some. Takes a bit of time, but I think it will be worthwhile if we can get full sets of them all. I checked with my contact (Bruce) about the Mini Wheels, and he ...

Re: Australian Slot Car Publications

Neil, I've got a possible contact for the missing Mini Wheels, but want to wait until I get the magazines that I have, finish scanned. Yours are all done now, and I have all 13 issues of Australian Slot Car Review to do. They go from V1-Issue 1, Dec 1997 to V3-Issue 5, Sep 2000. Many thanks to Tony ...

Re: Its not fair

The SSME track was the largest of two tracks built in 1967 by Roy Summersby, for a commercial venture at Woy Woy on the New South Wales central coast. The Woy Woy centre closed in the early 1970's when the slot car boom died, and the tracks were disposed of. The small track went to Boy's Town, Engad...

Re: Flux

Yeah, that's where I began as well, then finally decided to ask the friendly Bunning's employee who didn't know either, but seeing as I had the printout to prove it existed in the store somewhere, he looked it up on the confuser and found it.
He was surprised to see it there...

Re: Flux

Neil, I just got back from Bunnings @ Bankstown, and they had "Bakers" soldering fluid on the shelf, and I found it in the plumbing section. 30-50% Zinc Chloride, <10% Ammonium chloride. Dunno what that means!!! :shock: It's not genuine Bakers flux, but branded as "Bakers", "...

Re: Flux

I usually get Bakers from Bunnings.
If they are out of stock in your closest store, go to their "special order desk", give them the "I/N: 5060192" and they should be able to get it in for you.
That reminds me, I gotta get some too!!
