Funny that LFS still had a better interface & community features then, than AC now. Huh.
In my mind AC has never past the Beta stage. It's woeful in so many areas.
I think you've mentioned it before but What's your preferred sim and why? I've got some steam credit to burn, I have ams and rf2 in my wish list and also heard race room is ok, if you've tried these which is worth the dollars?

So when do we come to your place for a slot car party?

My first setup change ever  was to bend the little contacts underneath the Scalextric car up a bit to reduce friction against the track.
Similar here, but I've also put slightly bigger wheels on to gain a bit more top end :D

My brother had a Scaletrix (sp?) slot car set.  I remember setting up the burm on one corner so I could launch cars off it into the Christmas tree.

But, my setup trick as a 5 year old was to spray CRC on the track on a corner so I could practice power sliding around it.

Good times.

All these stories as little kids are quite funny, really.
