Hi Alan
Was a time when the Dodge Daytona's ruled in Ecra/Bscra in saloon! the body is still eligible in Bscra but what they have changed is the lead length rule from guide post to rear axle [107mm max for saloon] which would make the Daytona a wast of time, however both the Betta and Cat versions are still available.
Can't remember my first scratch car, probably a big pile of "£$% as my soldering skills were very limited due to the fact that i was using a 15watt iron at the time!
Do some of you older geezers remember using "liquid solder" for soldering on your pinions?
.... it was a grey sludge sold in a jar, you mixed it and then applied it to the armature shaft and pinion and then heated it up with an iron, it was supposed to make a solder joint as good as using the real stuff but never did as some of my cars would regularly "let go" round the Nordic track!
