  2. Vintage & Collector's corner
    Hi all, l'm new here, so please go easy.... I'm currently restoring a car of my Dad's from the 1960's, its an Airfix Hi-Speed Porsche Carrera 6 (5141). Managed to take it all apart and clean and am awaiting new tyres, but its missing a vital part - the slot guide! I've not seen this style before...

  4. Tracks & Scenery
    Pretty much settled on a layout for the foreseeable future. Still need to fill in some border gaps, but it's pretty much done. Sits on four 4'x8' sheets of plywood that I can break down and stack when not in use. For some reason, my wife thinks she should be able to park her car in the garage...

  6. Controllers
    In my quest for knowledge for all things Carrera analog controller interface, I purchased a controller extension to investigate the technique used to add the additional ports to a CU hand controller port. Here are a few interesting attributes. 1 - The extension is based on an Atmel ATMEGA8...
  7. Controllers
    Has anyone measured the controller output voltage versus the digital speed setting? WIth 15 digital speed settings there will be a range of voltages per digital speed setting...
  8. Slot.it oXigen
    The header is a very curious title. A combination of many extremes. As far asmy knowledge goes and the information I have got, all these combinations have not been done before. It all started when I started driving on my Carrera track with Oxigen...when this worked I thought I see more...
  9. Carrera Digital D-132 (Pro X)
    I'm running D132 cars with FUEL = ON setting on the CU. I have noticed that the car on controller #1 progressively slows down when it runs out of fuel. Other cars do not. So I did a test... If I take the car on controller #2 (say) and re-assign it to #1, it too will slow down when out of fuel...
  10. Track Plans
    Hello this is my first post here. as I was thinking to get into the slot cars with a digital 132 carrera set. My space is very limited to 255x130 cm a little larger than the tradidional 8x4. This is the plan I came into , Total length of 11.78 m and with a pitlane. I am interested in any...
  11. Tracks & Scenery
    Wasn't sure if I should start this post here or do separate posts in the 1/43rd and 1/32nd scale forums but settled for here as the track is the one constant. My idea is to do something that doesn't appear to happen much, at least on the forum, and that is to posts some videos of the track with...
  12. Slot.it oXigen
    I have been pondering to change the drivers in the my Carrera LCs to oXigen. Someone offered me 20+ oXigen drivers at a good price so I made the deal but I have had no time to do the install. Today I got it started. I have not seen other pics of similar installs so I thought of doing a small...
  13. Site Help and Suggestions
    Hi, thanks for letting me join, I'm pretty pumped. So I have a random question regarding Carrera Go!!! sets. Sorry to ask here, just don't know anyone that is knowledgeable in this stuff, cheers if you can help. Background: I know bugger all about slot apart from loving it when I was young...
  14. Carrera Digital D-132 (Pro X)
    Has anyone else had Carrera AppConnect connection reliability issues? About 25% of the time it will connect via Bluetooth correctly, but the majority of times it will not connect or has intermittent connection drops. See YouTube video where I demonstrate the issue. It has worked like this...
  15. Tracks & Scenery
    Late at night I've been using the planning software to see what I can come up with. The area I have is 5' x 16' (with a small alcove on one end... 7' wide on the one end.) I *could* build a table, but I will probably just keep the layout on the carpet. I will probably never build this.. but...
  16. 1:32 scale Cars
    Recent months, many new GT3 cars have been released. The Sideways BMW M6, the Slot it Maserati, ... All competitive out off the box. One of my first slot race cars I bought was the Scalextric Mclaren MP4. The shapes of a McLaren are something that attracts me. When I saw the introduction of...
  17. The SlotForum 'Swap Shop'
    I finally decided to focus my ever sprawling collection and now only buy Ferraris up to and including the F40 around 1990. These will be hard to let go but… Most have at most a few test laps before becoming shelf queens. The cars are generally in good or very good condition but the...
  18. The SlotForum 'Swap Shop'
    Right: some one-offs, some rarities and some other stuff! A lot of these have been collected as pairs and I'd prefer to sell them as such. All prices include UK post, overseas possible at cost, Sensible offers welcome. SCX Vintage Ferrari 330 P3, painted and declared as John Surtees/Mike Parkes...
  19. 1:32 scale Cars
    I'm planning on getting a Carrera Digital 132 track with some NSRs for competing with my family (I heard they're really fast + perform well out of the box), but would there be any modification/customization needed for me to run them on the track? I know that to run Scalextric on Carrera track...
  20. Tracks & Scenery
    Hello everyone! Getting back into slots after 30, well, 40 years (had a nice TCR setup as a child). I used Autorennbahn Planner to put this together from some other designs I found online, but I'm thinking I'm missing some important track elements. I've got a decent amount of space to use and...
