  • With Thanks To Luf and the "Boys"...

    Well thanks to Luf and the boys down at Archer I'm certified (although many would argue the point that I was certified years ago:lol )! Yep, had this idea that I'd get myself and my students involved in slotcar racing - I have many memories of going to SilverDollar Bowl (back in Calgary) in the old days with an older neighbor to watch him race his '66 Toronado on their 1/24 scale track...then finally talking Santa into putting a racetrack under the tree for me - a Scalelextric one in fact...oh so many hours I spent tinkering and racing...but I digress. Luf invited me down to Archer - I've been there a few times now although I'm not too sure if it was the racing memorabilia on the walls downstairs , the Targa track upstairs or the "pops" that made me want to keep coming back - perhaps it was some sort of hypnotic, subliminal air-freshener but I was re-hooked. So much so that we've almost completed construction of a wood 65 or so foot five-lane "L" shaped track, bought some of the required supplies (power supply, controllers etc.). But up until yesterday I had no cars ..However that "thing" that bit me down at Luf's not so long ago reared its head and now I have - get ready for this - remember I said almost completed track - 21:eek I just hope I didn't do anything stupid - my wife just rolled her eyes when I showed her what I'd bought (so far I'm in good shape - no cuts or bruising:rollin ). I bought two lots of cars at two different shops:

    Lot one:
    - Red #3 GT40 MkII
    - #48 'BFG' Chev Corvette L-88
    - Gold #5 Ford GT MKII 1966 Le Mans
    - White '69 Camaro
    - White Corvette L88

    - Mini Cooper "Red"
    - Mini Cooper "Silver"
    - Super Kart "Hot Chilis Team"
    - AC Cobra #51 'Black'

    Lot Two:

    - Red Lobster March 83G
    - Greenwood Corvette "Spirit of Le Mans '76"

    Carrera Evolution
    - #64 '69 Camaro SS 396

    - Brian Redman Ford GT40
    - Alex Soler Roig Campeones Porsche

    - #1 Cadillac (LMP?)

    - #45 Corvette L88
    - Ford GT40 (Red)
    - White Corvette L88
    - #40 Black '69 Camaro
    - #70 Boss 302 Mustang
    - #72 Red '69 Camaro

    I'm now open for suggestions on just about anything...especially about these uncontrollable muscle spasms I've developed:o - but please don't chastise me for what I've bought - I'm getting enough of that from my wife!

    Thanks for listening (reading) to this newbie ramble,

    ...ok, ok, the average price for the cars works out to be $40 ea.

    ...remember 50% of the people you know are below average...

    Nice strategy buying the duplicate cars. Maybe the wife won't count them twice!

      Geez, you've got as many cars as me already and I've been racing with Luf for almost 3 years! :eek Hope you're having as much fun as me too...

            Mr Stump...are you at the Terry Fox School? If so, do you have any pictures of the track?


            • #7
              I would be the person in question...I was hoping to get the track just a litte further along before I sent a picture or two...but I'll try to get few for you shortly. Shall I post them here or send them to you guys? We are also hoping to invite you and the boys over for a grand opening - complete with refreshments once we're up and running...

                        Well thanks for the welcome Mr. Bond...

                        FYI - I also use "THE 007" as my username :hat on other sites - yes there really are other sites:eek . I was going to use some sort of Bond reference for my username on this site but after reading some of your posts I thought perhaps that wouldn't be a good idea:rollin

                        p.s. Hummmm....a tone to my postings? I know not of what you speak...:b
