Auto World Pick Up Shoe Adjustments

Published: January 13, 2011
Auto World Pick Up Shoe AdjustmentsHere's a quick and easy adjustment to Auto World's Super III pick up shoes. This change improves the connectivity between the pick up shoe hooks and the motor brush barrels. I noticed the pick up shoe hooks would lift off the motor brush barrels when the shoes engaged the track rails. As the chassis traveled around the track, bumps or rail height would cause this lift to break the electrical connection causing the car to slow or sputter.

How to: Ccreate Non-Permanent Scenery for HO Scale Race TrackI don’t know about any of you, but this is something I’ve been struggling with for quite a few years, and I think I’ve finally developed a workable solution. If this has been posted before, I apologize. But since I was working up another “island” I thought I’d try my hand at documenting the process. Hope you find something you can use here.

Part 1 - Basic glad for the Scalextric Power Base 4

Published: August 23, 2010

CAUTION. THIS ARTICLE RECOMMENDS THE USE OF CHEAP EXTENSION CORDS AS AN AFFORDABLE SOURCE OF PLUGS AND SOCKETS. WHILE THIS WORKS IT SHOULD NEVER BE USED WHERE YOUNG OR EASILY CONFUSED RACERS ARE ALLOWED TO PLUG IN THESE CORDS. DUE TO THE FACT THESE ARE THE SAME CORDS THAT WILL PLUG INTO 110 VOLT WALL OUTLETS EXTREME CAUTION MUST BE USED. NEVER PLUG A GLAD EXTENSION CORD INTO A 110 VOLT POWER SUPPLY!!!

Part 1 - Basic glad for the Scalextric Power Base 4Glad is simple and unoriginal. It is a single lane separate system using chip jumpers that allows the PB4 owner to run analog. This project uses a stock PB4 , stock digital power pack, and stock digital controllers. You will only modify 2 pieces of straight track and make 2 chip jumpers.

Adjustable Voltage Regulator

Adjustable Voltage RegulatorHaving an adjustable voltage regulator for each lane lets you tune the lanes for equal lap times and to tame those overpowered cars. An added bonus is that it also adds voltage regulation if your power supply does not have it. This article describes how to fabricate your own adjustable voltage regulator including a list of parts required.

Tuning a Sloter ZytekWell, it has taken a while to write this article and I know the subject was covered in the forum by Rolltidevet, but seeing as I built this car to race in the Manufacturers challenge that was run at 132Slotcar Raceway, I'd share the set up and results of what I have done.
