Steady on, your cars are fast enough already

Got a brand new X-Traction out of the pack this morning and it's a quick one straight away, no idea why and I'm not going to take it apart to find out, the one I had that was quick is now slow so I'll be rebuilding that one.

I think you are on the right track there, the AW top plate when installed in the MT chassis was a tight as hell

QUOTE (LeeH @ 1 Jan 2012, 13:13) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I've got so much to learn with all these slot cars and the only way is to strip and rebuild and swap bits over and see what is quick

Thats the only way i'm afraid, plus talk and listen to those that have done it (and got it right)

Something that just came up in testing with the Magnatraction chassis, is not to run the front too low, the underside will bottom out too easily and unsettle it, as there is no magnet to pull it down to the track, definately need to have a ground clearance with these chassis!
QUOTE (pasiro @ 16 Jan 2012, 01:31) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I've just tried measuring the tyres but it isn't easy as the fronts are somewhere between the front wheel sizes and rear wheel sizes on the tyre gauge, and the rears are too big for any of the holes

I pretty good guestimate would be around .390 Front and about .480 rear

Mine are 385 front and 454 - 460 rear depends on the chassis

G+ front tyres, not the smallest ones, with the centre ribbed wheel made for the Magnatraction chassis for wide tyres.
My principal G+ set-up is, lowest possible G+ tyres on standard rims, tyco rear rims with .418-.426 depends on the chassis and motor strengths!
But most of all, it is meant to be a stock class.

Therefore, many of the modificatons in the article would not be allowed.

But lots of the tuning tips are, it is a very interesting read and a good follow-up to part 1!
