Back when I was active on the blog we had a track up here where I could test my cars. This track closed long ago as we don't have enough people interested in the hobby in our beautiful outdoor world up here.

 

This is a fancy controller that a friend of mine made for me especially for the type of cars that I was running back then: both original cars from the '60s and their modern copies.
 
He said that it has all kinds of adjustments and other extras on it as well. At least this is what he told me when I bought it from him.
It says Parma on the handle and the body but I think it's been highly modified.
 
Best offer by 11 PM Eastern time, Thursday, November 16, 2017. Note that this controller is being sold “AS-IS.”

 

You can post your offer in this thread, or if you wish to remain anonymous, send your offer (stating clearly which car) either in a PM to Cheater here at Slotblog or email him at greg@slotblog.net, and he will post it for you without identification.

 

Please note this NEW REQUIREMENT: So anonymous bids can be posted to the threads before the auction ends, anonymous bids must be sent ONE HALF HOUR before the ending time listed for the car. For example, if the bidding closes at 11 PM Eastern for posted bids, anonymous bids must be received by 10:30 PM Eastern, whether sent via email or PM.

 

Buyer to pay shipping costs. Shipping in most cases will be via USPS “First-Class Package Service,” at least within the US. International shipping will be by method of winning bidder's choice at his expense. A small amount will be added for the cost of packaging materials. If insurance is desired (above any amount automatically included) the additional cost will be at the buyer’s expense. It is not expensive to add insurance to First-Class Package Service (for example, $200 of insurance costs just an additional $3.35).

I emailed Jim Difalco pictures of Tom's controller so he could ID it for him, and here is Jim's kind reply:
 
"That is not a factory controller. It is my conversion module installed on a Parma Turbo frame. It is closest to my DD238 model. I hope this helps.
 
Jim"
 
The DD238-15 is described on the Difalco Design website as "E-Motion 2 Pro Plus Controller - 15 band."

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap
