I had a Fly 917 body sitting on Ralph Parker's metal Can-Am chassis with TSRF running gear designed for your style of racing. That went as well as it looked - far too much grunt for a home track! FZSemans has it now I think.

Stock motor is the 18k as used by Scalextric, but it's all horses for courses.

The Fly concept was to make works of art that just happened to be very rapid, if fragile, magnet racers. Take the mag out and you exacerbate the shonky quality of the gears and axles and, most often, end up having a downer on them.

We run a class for box-standard cars without magnets (weight can be added) and it's really a matter of whose car will stay reliable for each 10-lap heat. I've just bought the cheapie re-release 512 longtail to run in that class in the hope that a less complex chassis, solid front axle and less precious details to fall off might offer something.
