  • Anyone else make a Stimulus purchase ?

    Had to get this car, I wanted it for a long time.
    Made a racket, crown gear was bad. Strange for ninco.
    Slotit axle and crown, pioneer wheels and tires. Make it a better runner, and looker.

    Yes: bought a digital/analog switch box CU, pit lane, check lanes (sector timing), WIFI app, and a few cars from my wishlist. Finally getting my track into this decade.

      I used 1,000 of mine for bills. the other 200 will be for slot cars. I've got my eye on a couple evil-bay items. But I haven't made any purchases yet.

        Mainly parts for project cars, but I am still working so things haven't really changed as much for me. I bought some Sloting Plus wheels - first purchase from them. I haven't used them in any cars yet, but they look really nice for being the basic model. I do like how they use a larger (than normal) set screw. I have a couple Porsche 956K bodies that I had purchased years ago, finally got the parts to assemble them to OEM specification. Still waiting on 3 packages from dealers. Mail is slow.

              What is this "stimulus" package people are talking about? Is the US Govt providing you cash?

              Wish Canada would do the same as there a lot of us who have lost their jobs because of COVID19...

              Mine went straight to bills.
              Why doesn't my car run like that?

                Ours was just $40 more than the real estate taxes we couldn't afford. I drank it.
