Possibly The Greatest Waterslide Decal Site in the World

Great site of the week - Patto's Place, Bruce Patterson's slot car accessory webshop based in Oz. As regards Axles and Alloys the most useful accessories he offers are from the huge selection of waterslide decals for racing cars, all available in 1:64 as well as 1:32 and 1:24. They include race numbers, sponsors decals, car trim as well as complete sets of decals to do famous cars. You want the HO scale for 1:64 as, when used to describe slot cars, HO means 1:64 or "Hot Wheels Bastard Size".

I haven't ordered from him yet, but I have had some recommendations second-hand from the UK HO slot car scene so will shortly be ordering a load of sheets to complete some Aurora slot cars. You can find Patto's Place at http://members.optushome.com.au/pattosplace

Newly Discovered Auto-combat Site

I found a new link for you this afternoon - http://www.bus.brighton.ac.uk/staff/fesg/index.html

Francis Greenaway's site, contains The Official Guide to the United Kingdom for the Car Wars background, some Dark Future expansion rules, auto-combat using a Formula De set and upscaling Formula De to use 1:64 sized cars.

I'll get around to adding that to the frontpage next time I do an update.
