Hi
just been browsing on my weekly update on SCI and read with a smigden of interest this quote from TSRF

QUOTE Stay tuned for a MAJOR story about this in our little slot car world... It is going to rock.

The quote was in the following topic that rambles is an interesting way:

SCI Topic

Further in the topic someone connects the Fly lack of website with company demise, a maybe a Scalextric buy-out.

OK - all you conspiracy theorists - what is the story or is it all a stir!?

Matt, I'm pretty certain that PdL's veiled reference has nothing to do with any of the plasticar companies.

Just be patient for a little while longer and you'll have your stir. Promise.

To TSRF if walls ice cream released a new improved recipe it would be breaking news and would be featured on CNN for days!

so lets all thank the lord TSRF is only in the minority - the slot racing world

Hmmmm.... well, he knows where Canada is, he knows we don't all live in igloos, and even knows that putting the polar bear's snout in the slot on blue lane is not a good idea.... so I will continue to give him the benefit of the doubt when it comes to knowing that something is brewing outside of the US of A.... call me crazy if you must....

why would hornby want to buy fly.

all of the hornby purchases to date have been either strategic giving them control of their product in a certain market (buying out the distributor in the usa and spain) or added a new range of products (other scales of model trains).

no doubt they do have other targets but i'd of thought they are likely to be distributors in other countries or companies that make other types of model products such as model kits.

of course i could be wrong as i too heard of something happening in the world of slot cars but no more details than that.

Here's what Philippe posted:

"It is not a warning. It is an upcoming appalling story about a pair of sad people in our hobby, the story just coming together now. I could not even believe it until I had solid evidence. This will rock our collective boat indeed."

Don't read into it any more than it says.

Good advice - it's only after that initial mention that the wilder speculation is started, by others.
PdL has his head screwed on far better than most, though I wish we had more to go on - I'm really curious as to what will eventually pop up!

"A pair of sad people"

Probably someone has been caught cheating in one of his TSRF doo-dah races - using vac bodies that were actually to scale.

Smacks of Moped talk to me, "I've got a secret and you don't know it, nah, nah, naa, nah, naa!"

There was that Dutch (or had a Dutch sounding name) guy that he had a bee in his bonnet about on SCI last year. Perhaps he's dug up some more dirt on him! Erm....and his son!

Seeing as we're on the carp rumour treadmill how about this one;

Bum Slot, who are a covert subsidiary of Chad Valley, have bought out all the "big six" and are going to level the quality across the board! Only Team Slot will remain as competitors!

And if there are two people out there who believe that, then they are really sad........Wait a minute! This is all starting to add up..............

Mr.M

Oh! And sausages are made of lead

Hey there!

I assume you are referring to here;

www.imca-slotracing.com/

Interesting site


You could well be right Mr.M, odds on favourite I would say although I'm kinda hoping it's going to be that Scalextric are bringing the Turtles back


Cheers,

J.

The sad person is the one who says 'i know some major news' and won't say what it is. Either keep the whole thing to yourself or else say what you suspect. We don't think you are big and clever 'cos you are saying 'i know something you dont!'
