QUOTE Let's be honest, from a technical perspective, modern mass produced ready-to-run slot cars are hardly inspiring. In the main, poor handling is largely overcome by the simple addition of traction magnets. The motors are not particularly powerful and are toy-like, not suprisingly since they are gernerally designed to power battery operated toys and household appliances. Hence, the difference in handling between a sidewinder versus an inline configured 'ready-to-run' (r-t-r) production car is hardly noticeable. The difference in handling is however markedly different with Eurosport cars.

thanks for slammin the cars we buy...


QUOTE With modern "speed crazed moron" slot racing (1/32nd and 1/24th Eurosport), the reason for having a sidewinder or anglewinder motor installation is to optimise the gyroscopic effect that is caused by the rotation of the armature to aid handling. The gyroscopic force concerned is called precession, which is the reaction of a rotating mass at 90 degrees to the force applied.

whooosh! scuse me but that just went stright over my head


yes the rest does apply, so in theory I am driving my cars the right way just in the minority of the proper drivers?
