Would like to race as well.

Very objective and very well said. As you said: I would like any rules put in force to have the ability to keep us all friends, which would a challenge when a rule is open to different interpretations.August 27, 2018 at 11:48 PM in reply to: 2019 Series talk #12959
I am also lobbying that we support Kings by making an effort to have one class that we order the cars from them, as we did with the Scalextric British Touring Cars. They sell Scalextric, Slot.it and BRM.

All Slot.it McLaren M8s made are currently available from Electric Dreams at reasonable prices. These are really fun to drive.

I am lobbying for a Slot.it McLaren M8 D/E class. They are sub 4 second capable near stock. Specs: Motor: stock 23k. Tires: Slot.it F30s. Gearing : Open Voltage: 11v. Sidewinder configuration. Handling is excellent. In testing, car has proved to be durable with little tire wear. 5 models built plus white kit.

Marty’s excellent latest RevoSlot series article provides not only a narrative and standings, but clear data on the performance of each car. The rpm figures reveal that cars do not need high revs to be quick. That rev range should apply to other series as well. Tire degradation was a huge issue race to race and other tires should be certainly be tested on the Revos. This data shows how valuable testing is to produce good racing and reduce costs. Russell has spent a good number of hours with his Thunderslots and Shawn is testing a ScaleAuto car now to determine tire selection. Perhaps, we should consider having one member select a car that he wishes to propose for a future series, test it during the year and provide data before the club votes. Granted, it would be too costly to test every model, but it could give enough info to determine if a series with that make of car would be viable.March 31, 2018 at 9:00 PM in reply to: Discussion NSR Rally: Renault Clio R3 vs Abarth S2000 #12069
After ordering a 1035 IL Renault, I found that it came with a long can. Rules say inline is ok, but short can only. After looking at Pendle, Prof Mo and my NSR catalog, it became apparent there was no short can inline pod available. I propose that any stock configuration sold by NSR should be allowed. The number of models available for sale is very limited right now other than AW.
