Disassemble the Fly car by removing all screws. Set...
Tyrrell P34 Policar gearbox conversion for Scalextric 1976 model

This conversion is reversible for the Scalextric P34.
Tyrrell P34 build how-to
A. Parts required for this build:

So recently I've been buying some Scalextric cars. Not done that for a while.....
