OK, this is fun...
Scalextric Skoda Fabia, Porsche Boxter OEM board swap, SLOW CAR
2 x Scalextric Mini Cooper, Digital Mini Cooper S underpan assembly swap Details...
2 x Revell-Monogram NSU TT 1300, C7006, Angled front of motor - surprisingly easy! Details...
2 x Ninco Renault Clio, C7006, Angled front of motor (these also have the Ninco lighting kit fitted, 1 more to do!)
2 x Ninco Subaru, C7006, Vertical front of motor - plenty of room in these!
2 x Scalextric TVR Tuscan, C7006, Horizontal above and just to front of motor (under the bonnet basically) - the pressure from board and wires fouled the front axle so I used aluminium tubing to shroud it. Had to make a hole in the wall of the tube to prevent fouling of the motor shaft also.
SLOW CARS, don't know why, hoping Scalextric's higher RPM motors will actually be available before hell freezes over
Scalextric Mercedes CLK, Digital Mercedes CLK underpan swap (waiting on availability of Digital Mercedes CLK to do one more) FAST, FAST CAR
1 x Team Slot Lancia Stratos, C7005, Side of (huge) motor - still a tight fit!
I think that's it. Cars I want to do...
AutoArt Peugeot 206, C7005 but LED mount will be tricky, hopeful that Autort will license SSD in future...
Slot.it Porsche 962, You know my tale of woe
regarding this one. I would like to get a grid of these when the Slot.it SSD board is released.
Revell-Monogram Shelby Cobra #15, NO IDEA! Can't even see room for an F1 chip (C7005) in this one!
FYI, I haven't glued the board or LED in ANY of these cars. I tiny rubber grommets, slit in half height-wise, glued over the LED hole to hold the LED. Main board I just leave free or use a little blu-tack or tape. I'd rather these things have some freedom to move with impacts. I use insulating tape over any metal parts they could possibly come into contact with.
Soapbox time! Listen up Scaley if you are reading! Back in the (analog) day when I found a car I really liked (Scalextric Mini, Ninco Renault Clio etc.) I would always get at least 2 liveries so my friends and I could race like with like. Well guess what, SSD means that now I am always going to buy at least
3 liveries and usually 4. If I really like it I'll get 6. It doesn't take a genius to realise that this is going to improve the car manufacturers botom line. So be nice to us!
