Another year and it all starts again

First arrival of the new year

Vehicle Wheel Car Toy Automotive lighting

An Airfix Clubman Special Ferrari 250LM

Musical instrument Automotive lighting Motor vehicle Vehicle Wheel

Circuit component Gas Engineering Electric blue Machine

This is a non runner as the motor brushes aren't installed and been fitted with what I think are Scalextric plastic rear wheels.

Bought this mainly to get the motor as it was cheaper than most chassis / motors seem to be going for at the moment.

Well I lasted 12 days without buying something new in 2021!

These just in from Phil Smith's emprium and destined for the Bordeaux vintage meeting if it happens at the end of May.

Anyone had success in making the guide flag deeper on the MRRC Novi?

Thanks Mark, that is what I was going to do if nobody had a better idea

I also have a MRRC BRM same spec, same problem. Mind those motors have grunt

Hi Don, MRRC slim line, MRRC 6 pole ball race 2WD, MRRC 6 pole ball race 4WD, 'Hi Speed' Mabuchi FT16, 'Hi Speed' Mabuchi 13UO, did I get it right, huh?

This one is MRRC 6 Pole, Ball race, 2WD and goes well when it is in the slot (!), I plan to repaint in full Novi/STP Studebaker war paint.

Hi Peter,

Are the "Hi Speed" ones those with the clip-in motors? I'll have to check again, since it was a French buddy who said there were 6 - I had originally identified only 4.

Yes, the 'high speed' cars had the clip in chrome can mabuchis.
And I completely forgot about the MRRC 3 pole 2WD version....
