Jeff put me in for two gassers and two t-jets. I have a KIWI challenge car on standby if needed also. Blue Silk and Purple Haze will also show.

Vince your cars showed up today safe and sound as well. I almost have the LED gantry's done for you. So they will be going back with your cars. I know you weren't in a hurry, but I appreciate your patience anyway. Glad you are in the event, you and your cars have been to all or almost all of my events over the years. Thanks and good luck.

Put me down for one more car for the PSO shark pool. My cars left for Texas to day

Kevin you are currently the only one in the PSO Shark Pool. So just showing up assures you a spot on the list. I will be looking for the cars. Good luck in the race.

Hey guys, noobie here. Also new to whats needed for my drag track . The last step is a power supply. I bought one of those cloned variable power supplies (30v 10 amp) you see all over ebay for around $50-$75.. but it took a dump in 3 days.

So Im going to spend a few more shekels but Im not sure if I should go "switching" or "Linear". I'm sure its been beaten to death but I have to ask because I keep reading conflicting explanations on both. Im told to lean towards linear however Mastek makes a unit for slot cars but its switching... Any help would be appreciated.


I am using (2) Mastech 3010E units at Bear Creek and have had one for as long as I have had the track (approx 6-7 yrs) and the other I added about 3 yrs ago. Never had any problem with either one. Ebay...Amazon...etc always have different deals on those type power supplies. Shipping will depend on the Seller. I think I got mine both for around $100 - $120 each and I know I didn't pay a lot for shipping because I don't do that either. Switching is the way to go. I did the research and I can't remember all of the details, but like Dave said....the linear are bigger and heavier. They are used a lot for bench type work. Switching works best for our slot car needs. Sorry you had trouble with the one you bought. I also think that it was probably an unlucky isolated incident. I know Eagle Racing also has been using a Mastech 3020 unit for the last 7 -8 yrs without issue as well. I think you should be able to find the deal you want with a little patience and effort. Hope this helps.
