All of my RC trucks I have in my trunk, will be inside with their tanks empty and have their after run oil in them next weekend. I've been bitten pretty hard by the new hobby and the Digital hasn't even come out yet. All the guys in the other forums are warning how advanced and how much more fun it is than what I have now. AND the systems they have are supposed to be way less advanced compared to the one that will be getting released for my brand next month! Here's where I am as of Sunday.....http://www.75th-meu.com/SlotCars.htm

Thanks mate,
When you run on 15v you need as much cooling as possible!

Had a buddy show me this....you probably already know about it but I thought it had some pretty interesting stuff on the manufacturers websites.

I added 4' to my layout this morning and just finished 2 new pages on the website. Bought the wife a Carrera Corvette yesterday. I've put a "Table of Contents" on my site as well as a "Home" button on each page so you don't have to keep clicking back. Pages 10, 11 & 12 are new in the last 2 days.

Here's a review of the N-Digital system I'm getting for it as soon as it get's to the States in November.

My main straight is 20+ feet now. I bought 5 new cars in the last 2 days. 1 of them was a duplicate of a Mosler I already had, but i'd been waiting for an excuse to paint a body on the outside. I've been painting everything on the inside the last couple years, with the clear lexan RC bodies. There's a series of pictures and a large pic of this one on my site.

The 3rd pic is from the end of the table looking down to the far end of the cellar. I'll have light down there tomorrow and there's a good chance I'll be calling in to my volunteer job tomorrow too! Taking down the plywood that seperated the cellars gives me enough to just about reach the end. It's enough until the digital stuff comes in anyway!

I think tomorrow I'll add about 8' to the back straight and some elevated curved roadway to the close side, since both sets I bought came with elevated bridge sections. I could talk about this all night.LOL... Here's the pics.






I like that "Devil Dog" flag on the wall!! Oh-rah

Semper Fi Bro! Happy Belated Birthday! I haven't been here for a while, been kinda "building" the track. It's over 80 feet long now and I've got a bunch of new cars. Even have some big pics of the newest ones on page 18 with thumbnails.
