Re: RACE REPORT #291 - Sep 25th 2021 (KBnm, CMnm, VS6075GTnm, VS6075PRnm)

As Gordon said, the times recorded were very close . This was true for both qualifying and during the races , as seen by the ...

Re: RACE REPORT #290 - Aug 21st 2021 (VS6075PRnm)

Great afternoon of slotcar action as usual at FRC. Nice for Luke and Keith to join the now more regular Gordon, O'Brie and myself. It was great to see Luke show up with a car that he's actually preparing for competition here. As expected, there are bugs to be worked out but the car has real potentia...

DPR connector

Re: Rules, rules - more of our '60s/'70s documentation

Great for you to find these old documents. It's interesting that some of the classes and the class descriptions bear such a resemblance to current FRC ones. Also interesting that the parameters around which the rules are based are also so similar. Were race reports done at that time ? if so, it woul...

Re: My earliest surviving track design

Amazing design skills at such a young age. Any idea of the running length of the Scalextric one ? I particularly like the long straight.
