Re: Fly stub axles

I tried using the brass inserts and lined them up with a drill blank and that worked well. Slotpoor's article has all the goodies in it, motor, fixing gears, weight distribution, body rub problems, all kinds of stuff. It came from our rules which allow only tire swaps, the rest has to be stock, but ...

Re: Fly stub axles

Thanks, Harry. That's still the only way for some of the front motor Flys.

Re: Fly stub axles

Here's the best procedure we have ever had for Fly: nope. I guess I misunderstood something about our move here. I thought I could link to an excellent article from the past, but nothing seems to work... If one of you moderators is looking over my shoulder here, the thing I'm trying to link us to is...

Re: Finally...a food topic! Dressing or Stuffing?

Stuffing cooks inside the bird, dressing is an older dish, from the time when meals were cooked over an open flame. The dressing is a "rough" (quick) bread dish, like cornbread or oatmeal bread (no yeast), lots of seasoning, and drenched after baking with a light sauce or gravy. I use chic...

Re: Tubalcain

Bibbster, my father is an architect. His buildings are all over Memphis. Be glad you went another way. My father is no prince, but even I felt sorry for him watching architecture become what it is today. I used to do some drawings for him, mostly plot plans and easy stuff, and I did a lot of scale c...

Re: Odd Scalextric Mustang Observation!

Mine are soldered at the motor, clipped at the guide. There is more side to side axle slip than normal, and these are the worst wheels to press with those tiny spokes. Normally, I would just insert a split ring nylon spacer on both sides, but this is too much and makes body rub happen just a little....

Is this the "pebble" you mean?

Re: Odd Scalextric Mustang Observation!

That doesn't explain the "seal" on the box. I suspect the car was sold here in the US, returned in bad shape, partially repaired, and sealed to keep parts from falling out.

Re: Carrera Lee Petty 1960 Plymouth Fury

Mine was fine straight from the box, which surprised me. I lowered the guide slightly, and put urethane tires on the rear, and glued the motor solidly in its cradle. Of course, like everything, I trued the wheels first.

Re: 1\24

I was spending so much on H&R stuff, I called a halt to any more kits in the scale. Then I learned I could make four different kinds of chassis with equipment I had on hand or could make myself, I'm doomed. But 1/32 is my scale. Sports and GT in Europe from the 1960s is my main interest, with a ...

Re: Odd Scalextric Mustang Observation!

Very odd, and suspicious. Here's more mystery on the subject-- I bought the same car on the same sale at the same vendor, and mine is perfect in every way, and I looked hard for faults after reading this. Furthermore, like every Scaley I ever had, there was no seal or anything like a seal. If anythi...

Re: Tubalcain

I always wondered about that phrase and one other, in the top ten version. Seemed awkward. About shop class... I loved shop. When the Fed contribution to education was slashed for Starwars garbage, we lost something really wonderful that made people feel self-sufficient, whether they ever used those...

Re: Home Made Dynomometer

That's intense. How is it better than something as simple and cheap as what DynoTom built first and I built second? Ours don't need a computer, for one thing.
