Slot Car Database

Hi guys a bunch of people at SCI have been tossing around the idea of setting up a slot car database that would contain information on RTRs, parts, motors, etc. Measurements, maybe links to reviews, all the odds and sods that are recorded about these toys we play with but get lost in the ephemera. I was wondering if this is just more idle chatter or whether this maybe something of value.

The idea is that I would set it up on my new slot car site. I have a database and PHP all set up plus I do these types of databases for a living. I would make it available for a select group of contributors to maintain. The information would then be available via reports and search screens for all. I could also make it available to other sites in some manner to be determined.

Any interest or should I forget the whole thing?

I think this is a great idea but there does not seem to have been any progress.

6 months ago I had a crazy idea of creating a virtual club for members to design, build tracks and post times in challenges. In order for this to work the club needed a car database. It would take a single person a long time to build one, so I designed it with the ability for members to add new records then pass them onto a librarian to manage. In order to encourage this I've added a members show room where members can reference a car from the database, then add modifications and their own photos.

Whilst the club is not yet launched you can take a peek at
I didn't want the club to rely on advertising to fund it so I've set up a donnation option and will probably be adding a modest anual membership subscription if there is not enough through donations. Anyway let me know what you think.
