  1. I can supply the same bearings (from Plaig) for $1.90 each plus postage which is $1.50 for a stamp and an envelope.
  2. I have my doubts about these brass bushes. Slick7 brought out similar things years ago (probably still do) and you had to lubricate them constantly because they don't retain oil like sintered bronze does. Also most of us are using Plafit axles which, I believe are stainless steel. These bushes will chew out a stainless steel axle in no time, drill blank axles are the best alternative but hard to get in 2.9?mm. I've spoken to Werner but there doesn't seem to be any alternative coming. THEREFORE, I think I'd best change the rules for the coming year to allow any axle bearings. E
  3. Hi All, This is the new 2nd generation Slotworx chassis. The main plate, adjustable rear end and motor mounts are unchanged, and it still uses aluminium body mounts for reliability. After discussion with Fox a while back we both decided it was too close to the Hornsby race to introduce new parts so they will be available next week, although I have orders already so there may be a wait for new orders. Upgrade kits will be available and all complete chassis will be supplied fully assembled. Features - T plate has 2 positions +/- 6mm, plus 12mm adjustment for the bearing h
  4. 2020 1/24 LEXAN GT3 REGULATIONS 1.0 Body 1.1 Only Ace Modern GT (Lexan) Body Sets listed in the Official Body Homologation list are allowed to be used. 1.2 Body has to be cut to the manufacturers shown cut lines including the wheel arches. 1.3 The rear wing must be mounted at a minimum height of 3mm above the rear of the body, but never higher than the roof of the car. 1.4 Full vacuum formed driver interior ACE 24-12 may be used or any other vacuum formed interior making sure that no chassis part is visible through any window.

  5. I'm not sure where this fits but they are all Slotworx Cars, with various bodies. Bob is from Port Macquarie and has about 20 V8s and over 50 in total.
  6. That's a dog's breakfast Brett. I'll find the dimensions and make you something a bit more elegant.
  7. If/When Hornsby goes that'll be end of swapping lead wires too.
  8. Yes, the factory that makes the hand out motors needs to up it's game. Oh, hang on .................
  9. A quick note on hand out motors. The motors supplied by Slotworx and Ace Hobbies have all been tested and, not withstanding the normal variations of mass production, have all been found to be within the normal range of performance and without any overt irregularities. As we are all aware, there are many ways to destroy a motor, tight gear mesh, over revving, applying additives that destroy brushes, the list goes on. Therefore it is incumbent on each team to ensure their motor(s) survive. If your motor fails for any reason you will not receive a free replacement. You wil
  10. A clarification on the rules regarding lead wires. You may add devices to manage lead wires as long as they do not influence the normal operation of the chassis, specifically the normal movement of the 'H' and 'T' plates, and comply with all other rules. Such devices may include, PC board, clips, tape, cable ties, shrink tube, etc.
  11. I don't remember Jan, I've looked for the original drawing but no luck.
  12. Talking with Stoo yesterday and trying to remember exactly when the flat track was built. The absolute latest possible year was 1992 as I moved to Brisbane in early 1993 making it 28 years old this year. I've rebraided it a couple of times over the years and converted it to modular at one time so, unlike the hill climb track, it's easy to move and would be a good buy for someone if James can't find it a new home.
  13. Hi All, There've been some issues reported of posts not being saved since new year. The server has had recent upgrades and there was an update applied to the forum software this morning so I'm hopeful the problem is solved. Of course if the problem isn't solved no one will see this post and I'm wasting my time. Happy New Year 🍻 Cheers, Garry
