Something vintage to share

Thanks. Let me know what you think about the pics on page 21 and the back. I'm leaning towards this was most likely the original setup with 2 batteries. Maybe later realized that the 2 batteries didn't last long and they bumped it up to the 6 battery configuration. There doesn't seem to be a cover ...

Something vintage to share

Could it be that what you are seeing that look to be 2 batteries setting on the top of finish line system in the early track photos. Could they be the 2 lucite containers for making the light bulb covers In red and white. My guess would be that the lucite container light covers were probably made fr...

Re: Something vintage to share

Is there anyway to get the track plans picture uploaded or sent? Thanks for the help. Anyone out there created a replica of the finish line with the modified doorbell design? Hi there, rwburbage. Welcome to derby talk. You've been a quiet gentleman the past 2 years. There is a picture of a Pinewood...

Re: Do you want fries with that?

It’s ok Speedster!
And thank you for what you said ..
Because it can get confusing as to what’s the front or backside of the starting pin.

Re: Do you want fries with that?

And my fix for that mistake in my design. Is to use a popsicle stick and inset it flush to the noise and bottom side of the car. Yeah, that's the easy fix. I'd keep it as an option if the car fails inspection without it. The design looks great, BTW. Please post photos of the finished car! Thank's D...

Do you want fries with that?

Well kids we all make mistakes in design and it's okay that's how we learn. So lets look at this as if : VK & Speedster were ...

Re: Do you want fries with that?

Speedster Your thoughts are the same as mine about the starting pin and the back side of the pin. However there has to be a fixed point on the starting pin that all cars must start from. So with that said it has to be the front side of the starting pin that all cars must stage on and not stick past ...

Do you want fries with that?

Very cool! Just might wanna take note that this couldn't run in a lot of Scout races unless the front was changed to not be concave, though. What ever do you mean if the Rule reads Nothing is to stick past the starting pin. Now is that to the front side or back side of the starting pin? The concave...
