Worldwide slot car chat on Zoom!

You're invited to join the next World Wide Slot Car Chat!

Chats take place every Wednesday, alternating between 11am Pacific and 4pm Pacific time slots. The link to join is usually posted on Tuesday as a comment below.

For security reasons, guests will be held in a waiting room prior to joining the chat. Please be patient when joining in as it might take longer than normal.

Participants should leave their microphone muted unless they are speaking. This is to avoid accidentally interrupting someone who is talking. If you are making noise, I will mute your mic, so don't unmute until you're ready to speak. That said, don't be afraid to unmute when you want to add something to the conversation. I don't always catch every little wave. Join the chat a few minutes early to test things out and figure out where the mute button is. We are usually there 10-15 minutes early, but the recording will start on the hour.

Suggestions are welcome for talking points and questions you would like to see us answer. If you have a burning question for the group, or a subject you'd like to discuss or watch later, please post your ideas below. I'll compile them all before the chat and we'll see how many we can get to.

Come as a viewer or participant, either is fine. You can mute your mic and/or block your camera, it's up to you. There's even a text chat function that can be used if you don't or can't use a microphone.

I hope you are able to join us!

Interesting idea.

For any Brits, don't forget that we're currently 1 hour ahead of GMT, so it will be at 8pm.

So 21:00 here on the continent...

How'd it go, many takers?  anyone's screen crack ?

Only just saw this thread.

This went really well. I think we'll do it again. :)

Dang, I missed this. I had today registered with Zoom to try it but no-one to connect with.  OK, next time.

Let's do this again..

In this get-together,  from memory, we covered quite a lot.

- Analog  v  Digital. 
- the benefits of different digital systems,
- DiSCA racing : clubs and experiences 
- why some cars just don't work (and what to do about it) 
- Lap counters. Windows, IOS, heritage (DOS) 
- "home" vs "club" culture.
- magnetic down force 
- getting (and keeping) youngsters involved. 
- public / junior events. How to encourage good driving? 

Zoom behaved well. No technical problems. 
The timeslot worked well for me (7pm GMT /UST) 

It'd be a good idea to have some subjects to discuss, prepared ahead of time .

Your favourite slot car and why it's your favourite.

Have just been watching about 25mins of the recording, but will have to catch the rest later. Seems to have gone very well, good easy conversation going on with enough casual banter to keep the mood mellow.

Definitely will watch/listen this afternoon.
