:D :lol:

How Eloquently put Brad,.. :lol: although am slightly unsure just what you mean,.. Which 'Site' were/are you referring to?

IF by chance you are referring to R-Geo?, I'd just try contacting him Directly.

You can send him a "PM" via SlotBlog, as you could also with Mike Swiss.

R-Geo;
http://www.rgeoproducts.com/

Precision Slot Cars;
http://www.pslotcar.com/

The "BackTrack" units can be purchased from either Roger at "Mid-America Raceway", or Mike Swiss at "Chicagoland Raceway"

I have purchased stuff from Rick at R-Geo previously and also from Roger at Mid-America and Both were helpful and friendly etc, Fox has ordered stuff from Mike Swiss, so he may be able to help in the best method to order from him.

There is ofcourse also both;
http://www.shoppscr.com/

and

http://e-slotcar.com/

Hope that helps,.. :)

Cheers

Hi Brad

I started to reply to this and it got lost in the ether - I have used the last two links Stoo posted and they were good.

BTW I just use sleeved cheapo 1/8 Spurs for the jig wheels - they work a treat.

Cheers

P.S. This site also looks ok although I have not used it

Brad, the Rgeo jig is hard to beat for the price, and you can get away without the need for jig wheels, by using the adjusting screws under the axle. Bit of a fiddle to set up, but easy enough to do, and I have used bluetak to hold the screw to help stop them from turning. Could also use a lock-nut.

But if you feel that jig wheels are the way to go, then Mark's suggestion of re-purposing spur gears works well too. I've got a few gears that I've turned/ground down to the required dia.
