Thought I'd share our track we are taking to Slot Car Festival at Gaydon 22nd May.

This year we thought we would build tracks that you could have at home, so sorry guys no huge digital track like Brooklands.



We will be running three vehicles on the track at a time due to the smaller layout.



We have tried to put as many accessories into the layout as possible to show off product.



As people who have seen us at the events last year we build our tracks for all to come and play ! we love to see people having fun on all of our tracks.

So when we had finished the layout I thought how can we make it even more fun ?

Well how about SCX Digital Transit Van Racing !



So there will be 3 Tranit Vans Racing around our track at once !




I will post the other vans when Rich from Battlezone has finished with them in the spray booth




So guys what you think ?

Hi Ironman

Using SCX (of course) COT Nascar chassis they fit great !

Just a slight trim at the back on the length but wheels fit in lovley.

Even did one where I put Ford Escort MK2 wheels on it to lower it more.

i thought it was nascar i have one of those vans and was looking at my pro nascar chassis to see if there would be any way i could fit it in so i could still use it in the nascar if i wanted.

I will definately be having a look at yours on the day

Youve got to take squeeze a pit lane in there somewhere, if all the other brands are coming with the full bells and whistle SCXD needs its best feature on display.

Not just any pit lane either, it needs to be a roadside layby with a caravan selling burgers and bacon sarnies for all those hungry transit drivers, if you cant find a portaloo for the layby a bit of scenic hedge with one of the drivers behind it having a leak!!!

Got my day pass so will see you there.

Check the Track piece out !

QUOTE (corvette @ 18 May 2011, 02:29) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Just a guess but looks like a conversion piece to enable a digital start track to be used for an analogue controller?

With that piece will you be able to run analog cars on SCX digital as long as there is no single lane section (i.e. chicane, sliding curve)?
How do you power it? Is there a place to plug a transformer on the other side, or can you use an SCXD control unit and transformer?

Hi Mudchukka

I think the track looks good and I will be there to see it in person. Can I make a request? Will you attempt a reenactment of the mad german woman, Sabine somebody, racing around the Nurburg ring for Top Gear? I think would make excellent use of those very good looking Transit vans.
