Whilst that is an excellent photo of the blue Camaro with the heading "Doug does Scalextric Digital" you haven't "done it" until you show a picture of the Camaro switching lanes rather than going straight on.
Ditto SCX and Carrera.
Its all a bit like bungee jumping really. Are we going to believe that you have jumped if you only show a picture of you standing on the platform?
However, to be fair I know that you are not thinking camera angles right now but "how can we sneek another session in on those digital circuits without anybody looking/knowing?"
My local model railway store with whom I have a good relationship offered to get me one as I do spend a bit of money there. I also ticked the "are you trade" box a few times in case one or two model railway folk who I know wanted to go (as it happens "Steaming Dave" came along!) And Hornby appreciated my efforts for arranging the internet racing over the last year or two and had a small gift for me as the feedback that they got was most helpful. Allan Smith wanted to meet me aswell but I could not make it on the Friday.
So really folk were throwing tickets at me from left, right, and centre.
I tend to have a reasonably positive, practical and constructive approach to life and some folk appreciate that. Now I must get on with sorting out my kitchen else the new fitted oven and hob are not going to be fitted when the gas fitter turns up tomorrow.
You will have to wait until I am next at Wrexham to find out Inte. It was a bit of a surprise but a nice one! Its going to remain a shelf queen for obvious reasons. And a Phoenix visit could well be on the agenda although I had to pass on going to the local club this week because of kitchen alterations and a gasfitter turning up on Saturday. Slightly annoying that so sorry I didn't make it Owen.
The next 12 months could be the most interesting 12 months in slot car folk lore as there does seem an aweful lot going on. Its beginning to make me wonder what could be on the agenda for 2005?
I am at the point where I am finding it very hard to work out what slot car companies could technically be getting up to next?
Have we reached a pinacle for technology or is there still more to come?
Carrera have introduced a "U-Steer" type of thing with their digital set up as cars can move from left to right because the magnet moves from left to right under the car. So is "U-Steer" about to return, complete with proper sterring wheel and foot pedals rather than hand controllers? And a miniture camera on the car?
Although to be honest I see SPORT World as having several years of development with further enhancements after its initial first year of release in 2005.
So 2006 could be the next really interesting year as all this digital thing needs 2 years to consolidate.
