Default We bought the latest software update it is not loaded yet due to Server issues.

Hopefully we now finally after about 4 months of fighting our Hosting Company have a stable Server.

I paid Vbulletin to update the software on SCI so we can get the board running correctly.

But we ran into hard drive issues on the server and again lost our Retail Store Site.

We have moved www.132slotcar.us off from this Hosting Company at least for now. So we can start rebuilding the sales needed to survive and finance SCI.

Now if the Site is stable we will get Vbulletin to carry on with the update to the latest version of their program.

Hopefully in the next weeks this will all come together.

Default Incredible managed to do post and reply without logging in

Are we finally seeing progress. I can not count the times I have gone back and forth with Hosting Company saying it was the software that caused all our issues. Seems maybe their hard drive with bad sectors may have been part of it.

Onward and upward now maybe I can run my Store and announce the Magnet Marshal 2 today!!!

Default Front page of SCI is down on this lastest repair on the Server.

I will now try to get the SubDreamer Front page back up and running.

I need to pinch myself, cannot believe the Site is working this well so far.

Posting and staying logged in is a great feeling.

Now back to the Magnet Marshal 2 project

Did somebody say something about a Magnet Marshal 2 project?

Default First logging on to SCI

Until the Front page is recovered please let people know this is the link to get to SCI.

http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...rums/index.php

You can not get there by typing just the Slotcarillustrated.com address as the Front Page is still down.


The Magnet Marshal project is not a project.

Scaleracing LLC has re-manufactured the Magnet Marshal as Magnet Marshal 2.

We did not have any tooling from Tech tech who created the first version. So all new tooling was cut.

We made a bigger table for the scale to allow 1:24 scale cars to be measured as well. So now you can do 1:64, 1:43, 1:32 and 1:24 scale cars on a Magnet Marshal 2.

We made the guide slot deeper and longer to take Scaleauto guides.

We made the Magnatraction beam adjustable so you can calibrate several Magnet Marshal 2 scales to read similar numbers. This helps when Club members own the scale and want to compare their cars to a Club or Track spec at home.

We also made the battery accessible with a door to allow battery change without taking the Magnet Marshal 2 apart.

These will go on sale today, as soon as I upload them to the www.132slotcar.us Site.

I will move this thread once we have them active.

Price will be $149.99 with free shipping in the USA.

Worldwide sales shipping will be $10.00 flat fee.

Default No where near perfect yet but glimpses of better days ahead.

The Albums are gone, creating a database error right now the Hosting Company are looking into that and the Front Page.

I may need a developer to sort more of this out, but as soon as stable I will get the latest version of Vbulletin loaded. Then see what that breaks.

Fun but at least getting some results now.

Default Well not so good as the day wore on

Data base error popping up again.

Not sure what the next step is, but will keep trying to find solutions.
