What ever you do don't buy new !!!!!! Gumtree , Capeads , bid or buy and such are your friends ???? Loads of good deals on there . Buy a basic kit with two cars for around a grand maybe a bit less and then just buy loose track on one of the above . I would suggest Ninco , but the others are also good , just depends what you can get at the time . Anyone wanting some help just give me a shout .

Don't go digital till you know you are into it .

I will organise a Saturday arve that just the " RC " guys go to Maitland and play on the big track !!!! No pressure .

Got a club member wanting to get rid of some of his 1/32 slot car stuff ??

He has enough stuff to make three sets ( maybe more ) which would include

Two cars and all the controllers/transformers to make a two lane track plus enough track to make a big layout !!! Much more than you would get new for the same money !! He looking at R1000 per set ?
Any one interested ?
