Some seriously close racing tonight for everyone, who would have thought that racing with low attendance would be this enjoyable and competitive, it’s like two for the price of one or bogof.
 
Peter and I shaved our F1 PB’s.  There were 2 F1 heats with only one off, just reflects how well the cars are set up, (thanks go to Peter.) Actually, out of the 175 (technically it was 615 individual laps) F1 laps in heats and finals there was I think only 19 or 20 offs in total.

I have yet to see a 1959 Eldorado Biarritz race car. We are about to start a new class called "Boulevard Cruisers". The club chose to use the Gunze Sangyo line of static kits to make up the field. This is one of four cars I've built for this new class. Me, excited? Naaaaa.

Four washers were used to set the body height at 1.5mm

   
   
   
   

With the body sitting correctly. The rest of the car can go together.

   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   

18" inch subwoofers hide the anglewinder very well, and provide entertainment between heats. Chuck Berry with "Back in the USA" was a top hit in 1959.

Thank you very kindly for looking.

There was a purple Mini that raced in the 1972 Targa Florio. I love strange colours. This one got my attention. The original car had insane wheel flairs. The project begins with a donor car. A new Scalex classic Mini.

   
   
   

The original chassis removed from the body. The new 13" inch wheels and new BWMS050 slow class motor. Photos of the project Targa Mini in the background. The small photo on the far right is the only one with an accurate shot of the purple colour.

   

Here's one last look at the stock wheel well. Once you commit, you can't go back.

   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   

The Mini now runs very smooth and fast. Light years ahead of the stock chassis.

Thank you very kindly for looking.

Announced some time ago - and with prototypes on show at various slot car shows before the pandemic arrived - George Turner's Edwardian Racers are now available!

   

The initial range of eight kits are available now from the George Turner Models website...

   

Price for each kit - including unpainted body, decal sheet, chassis, wheels, driver, mechanic and detailing parts - is £40 plus postage. A list of recommended running gear is provided and is available from Pendle Slot Racing, including the necessary cream-coloured tyres.

   

I saw the first few finished prototypes at the Orpington slot car show last November and they did look superb. George was rightly very proud showing them off. The project has taken over a year to come to fruition, but is worth the wait. Videos posted on Facebook suggest they are great fun to drive too.

   

All the cars share the same chassis, wheels and recommended running gear. The front wheels have a moveable steering mechanism, which uses a standard guide.

   

The new Edwardian Racers section of the George Turner Models website is: www.georgeturnermodels.com/shop/edwardian-racers/

Evening  Wavegreen

Having seen a number of the excellent kit builds on the forum recently,  I have a question ? 

Some of the body shells    appear to have been fitted with what looks like to me, a plastic body mount, with a threaded insert?
They seem to be fitted in place with epoxy resin.  I guess they are trimmable for length. 

Am I correct   and if so, does a anybody know where I can buy them?
Even Pendle don't appear to have anything similar.....

Thanks,  
Pip
