The 99th issue of Model Car Racing magazine is here with step-by-step instructions on how to install the Slot.it HRS/2 chassis in Scalextric GT cars, five race track tests, plans for the famous Paramount Ranch Track and more.

 

MCR99 Model Car Racing Magazine, May/June 2018 (C)

The results of the Race Track Tests to measure the flat-out performance of five new cars running free of their downforce magnets are featured in this issue. You can also learn how to upgrade the dozens of Scalextric modern GT cars with a new Slot.it HRS/2 chassis to match quickest cars in the class. There are full reports on the prototypes’ racing background and the performance of the 1/32 scale models of the 1966 Ford J Car, 1967 Ford Mk.IV, 1969 Autocoast Ti22 Can-Am, 1970 Chaparral 2J Can-Am, 1970 Porsche 908/03, 1980 Porsche 944 Carrera GTS, 1991 Porsche 962C, 2012 Audi R18 ultra, 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 and 2016 Sideways Huracan GT3. The track plans list all the sections needed so you can assemble a 2-Lane version of the Paramount Ranch Track on a 5 x 9-foot ping-pong tabletop and a 2-Lane Paramount Ranch Track on an 11 X 13 ½-foot tabletop with plastic track. There is also a plan for an HO scale AFX 4-Lane Paramount Ranch Track on a 4 x 8-foot tabletop.

Pioneer Models update

We’ve all been waiting for hard news about the future plans of Pioneer Models, which has been going through a long, difficult process of establishing its own factory after having too many bad experiences with contractor factories in China.   We have it on good authority from Pioneer USA that the first shipments of cars from the new factory are expected to arrive on these shores sometime in October..  These should be the first of the new and much anticipated Camaro models.  Pioneer says that with the entire manufacturing process under its own control, from initial research to final distribution it will be able to bring out new models much more quickly.  The Legends cars and the 1971 Javelin are expected to follow the Camaro in rapid succession.  Meanwhile, Pioneer is now showing on its web site the first official drawing of the Chevy Legends car.

We will pass on to you any additional information as we receive it.  For now, however, the end of the long drought of Pioneer cars is in sight, for which we can all rejoice.  Electric Dreams wishes Julian Birley and all the gang at Pioneer all success and we congratulate them upon the imminent completion of their new factory.

 

New NSR 2mm axles, bushings, and gears. 

NSR has released and we have received 2mm diameter axles along with bushings and spacers to fit them.  Apparently, the level of competition in European racing has reached the point where reducing the axle diameter by .4mm or so is worth the effort for even the tiny incremental weight reduction this allows.  NSR has also released a line of very lightweight plastic spur gears with metal hubs for both 2mm and 3/32″ axles, but there have been immediate reports of these gears failing due to improper design.  We received a shipment of these gears but we will not be putting them on line for sale until we are certain the problem is resolved.  We may end up returning all of them for replacement with improved gears.

Thanks for shopping with us!
