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.

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.

Start out with the basic components you see at any race track. Skid aprons, guard rails, retaining walls and road striping are all common elements you can incorporate into your scale racing world.

TPP ProjectThere was a time when building a Tyco was very commonplace. Now that the market has evolved and new and better equipment has now taken its rightful place in the market, the Tyco finds itself a part of the Mattel Corporation an out in the pasture. It's still possible to build a decent running Tyco though. What we are going to attempt is to build a TPP Tyco adaptation of the Tyco narrow Chassis "HK" that I personally used to successfully compete against the mighty SG+ that was the dominate chassis of that period of time.
