In the last week or so, I have broken the habit of 2004 and bought a couple of new FLY cars. First one was the BMW 320i A624 Macau...
As with almost all slot cars that I've ever bought, I take it out of the box and gave it a quick run around my home track 'au naturel' i.e. untweaked..... What would normally have been a couple of laps turned into a 45 minute session exploring the limits of the car
HEY! HEY! I thought a FLY car that runs well straight out of the box! Reasons = round wheels and concentric grippy tyres + free running transmission.
Must have been a fluke....
Later that same week however, I acquired an A84 Oreca Viper.... The same story repeats itself
I will admit that LATER, I took the sensible step of glueing the transmission bearings and applying a little dab of lube in the right places on both cars, but straight from the box BOTH cars were absolutely cracking runners.
