Hi Guys

Have been reading the forum for months and have finally go round to signing up.

Just a bit of background:

I have a 105ft Ninco track with around 50 cars (various makes). Recently switched from Scalextric Sport so I have loads of that to dispose of now.

Looking forward to joining in the banter.

I have raced on a friends Ninco track on a few occasions and most cars seem to run better on that - particularly non-magnet cars and makes like Vanquish. Since switching I have beaten the average speed in m/s for every car I own - some are marginal but some by huge amounts.

I know there are probably more options with the Scalextric, but I only want a basic track to race on, ie no crossovers and I am not really interested in the forthcoming digital technology. I have set it up with a DS lapcounter and independent power to each lane and I use Professor Motor controllers. There are no longer any problems with power continuity.

The Sport track was ok and I wouldn't discourage anyone from using it - I just prefer the Ninco.

The hobby is definitely costing too much money though - just far too much damn good stuff on the market!

There are 167 pieces, mainly standard straghts and curves, but also a few crossovers and half, quarter & short straights. The whole lot including two transformers, lap counter, power base and a few borders cost over £700 to buy.

I haven't spent much time researching how much to expect for selling but I suppose in total I'll be looking to recoup around £400 or so. I would be willing to split and sell it in stages.
