Hi...We've had another great day racing the 1/32nd Slot Cars- Karl and I have had lots of fun!
In Lane #1 is shown the new RevoSlot -Toyota GT1
All my Slot Cars in readiness for Race Day #2.
The Toyota GT1 and Mosler MT 900R.
The SCALEXTRIC Track prior to Race Day.
The generic Le Mans race cars on the Grid ready for the 1st Race of the Day.
Lunch Time! Hot Sausage Rolls, Potato Chips - Tomato Sauce and Salt ( And Coffee).
Chris looks after Karl and I very well.
Chris and Karl chatting - Karl took a liking to racing the SAUBER C9 Mercedes.
We found that the Toyota GT1 wasn't fitted with a Magnet - on the track the car constantly was loosing it's tail and spinning out- something had to be done!
Tonight I drilled the aluminium chassis just in front of the Toyota's Motor- then with a Jewelers Saw and File opened up the chassis to take the unfitted magnet which was loose in the supplied box.
I fitted the silver colored magnet so that it was just proud of the chassis and fixed it in place with a sheet of thick plastic and super glue.
The TOYOTA GT1.
The Toyota now sticks to the track like glue - the fitted magnet has that much grip I needed to adjust the hand throttle to 100% power rating - the Toyota runs like a charm and is now ready for our next race day in a couple of weeks time.
Yesterday I disassembled two of the Cupboards in the shed to make space for an Extension of the Scalextric Track - I'm thinking the extra track will allow a longer lap time and thus be more enjoyable for Karl and I in the future. I will have to save for the extra Scalextric Track.
Well that is my news for this evening - it has been a fun day.
Best Wishes. KEV.
