Domejudd V10
SCX have produced good looking Le Mans car and quick in the handling department, but not as far as the motor is concerned in my opinion. Unfortunately I can't get the motor to go any quicker than the standard SCX motor which doesn't fit anyway as the motor shaft is not long enough to reach the contrate gear. This applies to the turbo as well, but with this quick fix illustrated on my web site

http://www.ttracing.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/domejudd.htm

you can up the performance with a SCX Turbo or a SlotIt V12 (v12 with a motor mount available from Pendle Slotcar racing: www.pendleslotracing.co.uk/ part No: SIMC05 V12/2 29.000 MOTOR + ADAPTOR FOR SCX

Shame your Judd is a dud - see what I did there? Please yourselves.

Forgive me but looking at your diagram there is nothing left of the shaft to link into the contrate. Or am I missing something.

What I want to know is how to get me lights working again. They briefly shone like they were piercing the night through the Forest Esses, hard on a charge whilst the camp fires blazed on a balmy La Sarthe night.

Then they went out, never to return.

Say, nice track you got there. But shame on you - no link to SlotForum!

I've had the same problem- front lights went after about 5 minutes. Tail lights still work OK, but that's hardly the point.

What power supply/voltage were you using? Wondering if 15v is too much for them...

Thinking about it, I think my tail lights still glow, too.

Mine only got all the juice from one old blue box Scaley power pack.

Still thinking about it, mine also was fine for a little while, then went "lights out".

Maybe Jexy can ask some questions in the right places and shed some light on this for us - see what I did there 'shed some light', it's a problem with lights. Geddit?

I thought someone else had already found a fix for the lights thing (on the Forum), but i think it's all to do with the small contacts on the lights. (i.e. not the lamp it's self) the small circuit board with the lamp is held in place and powered via two small clips. It appears any head on crash or bump knocks these out of place and thus the lights stop working!

I'm sure it was Slik who sorted this by simply bending them back to form a bit more preasure.

Sorry it's a bit vague, no car to hand - supposed to be working, will take a look tonight.

Er . . . how to say this . . . yes!
You are missing the pretty blue spacers on the axle wot make this conversion practical!

(I reckon he's still drunk with new found power!)

Ha, ha! Lots of laughs at Wankel!

Hey, easy on the small print there, Tropi. Or I'll close this thread out!

Sorry Mr Dome, you gotta factor in for dullards like little me.


Photos is worth a thousand....

Thanks for the heads-up, Jexy.

Grrrr. Fairly messed up my Dome now.

I checked out the wiring and it appears to me that since both my lights work when power is applied directly that the tiny little piece of circuit board is duff - looks like it on one of them but my eyes aren't what they used to be.

Figured I could fix it with the soldering iron, totally forgetting that I've never fixed anything with my soldering iron and should really get rid of my soldering iron because I generally make things worse with it.

True to form, one of the lights stopped working at all after I melted some plastic!

Guess I should have sent the wagon back whence it came and demanded a replacement.

Did I dream it or can you buy a paint that conducts electricity for this sort of fine repair work?

Wankel, no, you didn't dream it! Conductive paint has been around for years, and is available from many electronics supply houses. Although I'm not familiar with this particular product, a quick search turned up this UK source:

Silver Conductive Paint

...not laughing at you, but with you! A memorable quote!

Thanks for the link Fergy. I new I wasn't dreaming about its existence but the nice man in the model shop smirked at me and the nice lady in the hardware shop laughed out loud when I asked.
