  • well .... [1/43]

    it´s way too silent in here!
    what are you all doing?

    i´m working on the camera chassis right now, to get some good videos of the tracks and cars that will come in february for the ProNoMag hopefully ...

    I recently picked up some Kyosho D-Slot cars (a Mazda, two 962s, and a 917). I’d like to replace the chassis with Shapeways chsssis (wink, wink).
    Which one would you recommend: Type 1, Type 2, or Type 3?
    Where can I find urethane tires for these cars?

      personally i like the type 3 chassis for those cars - the one with the motor pod.
      urethane tires became a problem lately, with CarGo going out of production, ranch-design being long gone, but maybe there are some Ortmann tires that will fit the Kyosho wheels directly. Maybe Retro64 has some tires, but i do not know for sure, sorry.

        Just signed up new forum, slowly getting back with slot cars.
        Got few unfinished projects from last spring that needs to be finished and started rebuilding a Motorific T-Bird.
        Still spending a lot of time on a disc golf courses but I think I will get something done for the ProNoMag.

            I found a dusty box full of 1/43 of
            Onyx and Brumm diecast I bought nearly 3 decades ago a few of which I
            plan to convert to 2.4Ghz wireless proportional speed control slot cars, perhaps using your chassis Peter?

            Any suggestions for the F1 cars...using tiny coreless drone or steering servo motors?

            1/43 cars look just right on my vintage Artin 1/32 track.
