Slot car abuse in the Early hours of Saturday morning....





WHERE: Downtown Zürich.
WHY: why not?
Response from the locals:

Consoling glances, polite chuckles or open sniggering, covert 'goes' when no one was looking


SAD ??? ME ??? Hey trust me I am a Slothead.... It was F.U.N !

I had to race these as part of an episode of `Short Circuits`.To be honest I wasn`t too happy to begin with but it was really good fun . Of course a lot of comments never made the final edit but Alex Riley and I got stuck in and to be honest there is a lot of skill involved.

I know I'm bringing this post back from the dead but I like those caravans and I know where to get a pair with all the coupling hooks for £10 on Ebay Buy it Now. But what are those cars from, manufacturer, scratch built kit, I love the 2 of them? I'm guessing that the Silver is a Ninco Callaway and the others a 911 GT1 with no spoiler. How well do the caravans run?

The Silver car is a Callaway from Ninco and back in the old days when ye started Fly brought out the blue coral liveried 911 GT1, and just for the crack of it, Ninco also released it.

I think you can buy a diecast car that comes with the caravan for a couple of quid.

And the hook? bent up bit of welding wire will do lol

I got a diecast Land Rover with a carvan for a couple of quid. Twin axle one too


Look out for them in cheap toy shops.

I used the hook from the diecast range rover...

One of the members of Auslot Forums held a quite large event as part of an end of season presentation/fun night a while ago. I just had to show you a link to the post, has a few pictures. All the caravans were hand made, and some details are at the bottom of the post.

At Molesey we made our own caravan from laminated A4 paper... Quite a simple design - One peice made the roof, front rear and sides - with gluing tabs. Using a cut out and score technique - glued togethor using hot glue. Chassis was also from laminated paper, with a set of spare bearings, glued the axle in line (any axle from a ninco car- mine a CLK) - towing hook from a bent paperclip - and a paper clip bent to form a hitch on the caravan.

They produced hours of fun, and caused no damage on crashing as they were extremely light. Al cars were Ninco Callaways running on NC2's....

The cheif designer - made a set of mobile toilets, a hot dog van, a horse box and even a tanker trailer using the same method.... If only I'd got a pic...

Awesome fun.... Domejud... are they still parked around the Pikie site at fire exit bend???? Post a photo m8....


Cheers

I didn't know they had those for 1/32nd scale cars
In my HO days I had a Faller Mercedes with a camper trailing behind. I'm all for it

Oh yeah, those are cool! I smell a new a class on our track!(And the track is smelly indeed!
) Are those scratch-built? They look factory. Time to tune for max. torque!!
