NEWS FROM THE NATIONAL iHobby SHOW

We have news about products that are due by Christmas and in early spring from the National iHobby Show in Chicago:

Scalextric has announced the race set using their upcoming ARC (App Control System) system that utilizes an app so your tablet or smartphone will control and display lap counting and timing, race results, a listing of your racing stable, track planning and dozens of other race and car control options. Scalextric announced the system and described it in the 2014 catalogs as the RCS (for Race Control System) but has changed the name to ARC to more accurately reflect the system’s advantages. There’s more information below.

Ninco also has some new 1/32 scale sets at bargain prices (we will inform you when pre-orders are available in a future newsletter).

Slot.it had early unpainted samples of the 2013 Audi R18 e-tron quattro LeMans car with four-wheel drive (they are due in spring but you can pre-order now.

Policar displayed pre-production samples of their Lotus 72 Formula 1 cars (all are due in the spring —we will inform you when pre-orders are available in a future newsletter).

NSR announced a new 1/32 scale 2013 BMW Z4 (we will inform you when pre-orders are available in a future newsletter).

Mr. Slotcar had their forthcoming McLaren F1 GTR on display (which you can pre-order now—search MRS1045O). Mr.Slotcar also will offer an optional add-on front suspension with working springs and adjustable camber for the McLaren (we will inform you when pre-orders are available in a future newsletter). Carrera and SCX did not attend the iHobby show.

This week we have several new arrivals and a new new racing set from Scalextric available for pre-order.

Newsletter – 2014 Concours d’Elegance at the Greystone Mansion

May 2, 2014 by  
Filed under Newsletter Archive 2014

Comments Off

Exciting News!

We’ve been invited back the Greystone Concourse d’Elegance

Following the attendance success of its 2013 display, we were invited back to the 2014 Concours d‘Elegance at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, CA.

The display will be attended to by noted author Robert Schleicher, museum owner Scott Bader, and Los Angeles Slot Car Museum curator Philippe de Lespinay.

We hope you’ll join us – it is an amazing event! But if you can’t, don’t fret… We’ll be taking lots of pictures (and video too)!

The updated display will be larger than last year’s as the Greystone is giving us the whole main room of the mansion. If you were there last year you’ll remember we had to share it with other exhibitors and it was a bit noisy. Not this year – it’s all ours!

Pics from last year’s Greystone Concourse d’Elegance

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.

Sebring Chassis Jaguar kitbash

Here’s a very simple conversion project for anyone wanting to try kitbashing for the first time.  It’s an old Revell Highway Pioneers Jaguar XK120 body mounted on a completely box-stock Sebring running chassis from a Monogram Cooper-Ford.  The Jag body is long out of production but examples of it turn up frequently on eBay.  This project, however, illustrates the ease of adapting the Sebring chassis to almost any body you need a simple, inexpensive, and adjustable chassis for.

We chose the Sebring chassis as used in the Monogram Cooper-Ford because it comes with a set of early 60s wheels that look just perfect with the Jaguar body and are very similar, if not identical, to wheels that were used on Jaguars and other production sports cars in SCCA competition in the 60s.  In addition, the width through the wheels and tires was a perfect match for the Jaguar shell, which had had the original skirted rear fenders opened up.  MRRC and Monogram cars that use the Sebring chassis come with quite a variety of different wheels as used on the various cars being modeled.  You can select as a donor car the one that has the wheels you are looking for or you can buy the complete running chassis without a body and put inserts of your choice into the plain disc wheels or use other wheels and tires completely.

You can see in this photo that the chassis needed only to haver its wheelbase adjusted longer to fit the Jaguar body.  To do that we had to remove the two plastic chassis inserts, shown to the left of the chassis, that held the wheelbase to the length needed for the Cooper model.

Here you see the body mounts we made from styrene sheet and tube, available at almost any local hobby shop under the name of Evergreen or Plastruct.  As the car stands right now we could mount the body, put it on the track, and run it, but of course we are going to restore the body with a new paint job, decals, interior, and detail parts, which we will show you in a future newsletter.  Getting the car to this point only took a couple of hours.  Depending on how much paint and detail work you want to do you can easily have a car ready to race on your track in an afternoon.

Roy Salvadori and Cotton Owens

A couple of issues ago we devoted this entire newsletter to a tribute to Carroll Shelby.  Now comes word of the passing of Roy Salvadori, Shelby’s driving partner in his 1959 LeMans victory.  Salvadori also competed in Formula One from 1952 through 1962 and managed the Cooper F1 team in 1966-67.  The drivers whose exploits we followed so avidly in our youth are getting fewer and fewer, but their achievements live on in our memory.  Rest in peace, Roy.

We also note that Cotton Owens, who had a long NASCAR career as a driver and a car builder and was elected to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, passed away recently.  He, too will be missed.

E-mail matters

We have had several instances lately in which we have replied to a customer’s e-mail message and the e-mail system has been unable to deliver the message as addressed.  This is almost always the result of the return e-mail address being somehow invalid or not accepted by the system.  It is our policy to reply to all e-mails we receive within 1 business day, usually sooner.  If you have sent an e-mail message to our sales department (shop@electricdreams.com) or to our technical support department (support@electricdreams.com) and have not received a reply please call us at 310-676-7600 so we can resolve the e-mail problem and maintain reliable e-mail communication with you.  Thanks!
