I was wondering if it were possible to change a standard scalextric braid pickup system into a normal pick-up where the the braids were put right into the guide flag like slot its and NSRs?
you can run the stadard guids just saw and file the guids flush on the top. bend the braids to u shape and remove. tin the tops and then solder the wires under neath the top of the braid by the front end , replace the u braid in slots and sqeeze hard with a pair of small pliers rebend the braid underneath and flat the contact surface with a fine file. job done. john.
