    The Mini Sprint is ready for the ProNoMag!

    Started life as an Carrera Go!Mini body, got the roof chopped, wheel wells cut up, wheel arches widened, wing widened, new mold for vac-forming the clear windows.
    chassis is scratchbuild styrene, printed guide, printed wheels.
    constant light circuit V3 from MiniSlot, SMD LEDs front and rear.
    blue is tamya spray paint, white stripes and clear coat from Revell Aqua color. home made laser printer decals.
    not all went well, some areas could have needed more attention, but when the Mini is moving, all is good.

          Finally got the mirrors for the Mini.
          now it´s finished.
          only to fix the blinking left front light, some kind of cold solder maybe ...

              Corvette is finished! will run in the ProNoMag 2021 for sure.

              so is the Exige - vac-formed body on scratchbuilt chassis

              and 2 new SCX compact cars with astonishing great chassis - the rear axle has brass bearings, nearly no play, they run on the Desmo very well just ootb!

                Very nice cars, are the new SCX tires almost like PU tires? Remember reading comment like that in GO!!! forum from Uwe I think

                  thanks, Aki. as i did not even sand them, i can not say if they are as good as PU. I do not think so, but they are better than they have been before for sure. I will report when i do a little tuning. the front axle slop is still ... well .... bad. 1.5mm side to side play like it has been before. but the rear axle is really good. front can be solved easily.

                    This car is a present from my german friends @ the go!forum

                    a special, hand built edition of a track safety car, a Lotus Exige, a car that i really love!

                    awesome details everywhere, constant light kit, even the blink lights work @ a standstill for minutes!

                    It is simply awesome!
                    Take a look at those wheels! the rear lights! the decals, the paint, driver!

                    It gets a special place on the track, so i see it everytime that i go there!

                    many, many thanks!

                        Great work Peter, looks like you're still crushing it!
                        I been away so long I had to re-register!
                        HRW didn't remember who I was! LOL
                        Fingers crossed I can find the time to start doing some building myself!
                        Lately I've been socially distancing from my wife; She's a COVID nurse.
                        But, She's been immunized and I get my second dose Wed. Then maybe she can get back to sleeping on our room, not in my Slotcar room and I can do some more Running/Building!!
                        It's interesting to see how much things have changed around here and in the industry!!! 😮

                        At one point a lot of the 1/43 People started moving to Facebook and that was good for a time, but I started getting too many ad's, to much invasion of my Privacy and too many idiots, so I bailed on Facebook.
                        Other than here Is there another meet up? Instagram or whatnot?
                        Anywayz it feels a lot like when I first started in 1/43 and the scale needed a shot in the arm. Not saying I am gonna do that, but maybe there's a chance for something to happen?
