seems this part of the sites went quiet. has everyone given it up?
on the other hand, just to ask where you all get your parts/cars from? ive been using marksmodels and enjoy the service, guys are really good there. had used the modelshop in portlaoise before when living down the kneck of the woods but havent ordered anything from there for a while. is there any other shops that ive missed thats within travelling distance of Dublin or have a website thats not in the uk?

thanks

Hi Darren, we are still going but I found I was falling behind in a big way with the race reports so I started doing simpler and much quicker to post race reports on Facebook (if you are on Facebook look for the "Dublin slot car club" group and I can add you.

hey Ronan, yeah no worries. I tend not to go on facebook tbh, we'll just say ex gf's etc are the result of that lol i'm sure i'll be able to have a look without registering again tho.

i got some barriers from marksmodels the other day, but somehow, 2 of the barriers are longer than the borders, including borders ive already got. have to take a pop back in later today but the car is in the garage gettin brakes done at the moment. it'll be hard goin in marksmodels without comin out with another car lol

Yeah, I know many who like to keep a low profile on Facebook! Nothing to stop you registering under a different name though!

I'm sure marks will sort you out with the right barriers. Tempting to pick up more while you are there I agree...

If you are keen on coming out for a race night over the summer just let me know, always good to get more people involved.

You have a ton of fantastic cars! Several of the cars you have are the type we race regularly here in Dublin.

Hope to get you out to a race night soon, new people are always welcome especially when they already have a great selection of cars!

Ronan
