Hi.

 

To introduce myself, I am old racer from the past with average capability, who has been seduced back in to the sport after 40+ years away.

 

The majority of the cars I plan to race will be 1/32 using various classes of motor - I have started with a basic controller and now plan to upgrade to a decent one. I had tried various controllers of other drivers and initially decided on a Difalco, but last week had the opportunity to use a Carsteen CS2, and I was very pleasantly surprised at how well it suited me and the way I drive.

 

Now the problem, I would like to know where I can get one, preferably in the UK. I have tried but cannot find anyone that stocks them, also what the cost is as they seem to vary a great deal worldwide - Help would greatly be appreciated.

Mike,

 

Get in touch with Ian Fitzpatrick at Betta, Muriel at SCD, and possibly Dave Harvey at Won-O-Won. I think Ian may have one in stock, probably SCD as well. Just give them a ring, and they will help. You can get the telephone numbers on the BSCRA site.

Thanks, Rod.

 

I have been in contact with Muriel at SCD, but she had none in stock. I will try the others you suggest.
