Thanks again, I really appreciate it. I well remember the pin guides on my early Scalextric cars (not to mention the roller ball ones on the tinplate cars) and its a pity they're not really viable now because of the shorting out issue. It would make life a lot simpler if they were. I seem to recall the pins wore out quite quickly though. I wonder how long/short a fixed guide blade could be to allow it to negotiate the tightest radius slot, allow the car to oversteer and still have sufficient braid length for consistent power pick up? I can see an experiment coming on although if it was viable I guess everyone would be going that route.
Thank you too for locking the left front and to Stewart for agreeing to the modification. I can live with it being slightly out of round if the car is a little more competitive. Let's hope all the other tracks are nice and smooth.
Chris, thank you very much for the "master class" on car set-up. Without a real track of my own, I have been at a bit (or a lot!) of a loss to offer any insights or suggestions on the topic. For many of us struggling builders, I think your analysis is worth more than the price of admission to this proxy! I know that I will be much more focused on these things during my future builds.
Chris First thank you for a great event that you and the team put on. Your review of the cars is invaluable and as stated earlier worth the price of admission. I really liked your points on each car and you are spot on when it came to my car. Many thanks my friend Aloha Dale
