This is my BMW Ninco upgraded for our races: no mag; ninco nc2 motor taped to the chassis; bronze bushings and rear axle by Slot it; 10 : 30, or 11 : 33 gear; NSR wheels and Ninco tires well sanded. Front axle not fixed, but raised at the max with sponge under it. Lead sheet adesive on the chassis, 0.5 mm thick, on the sides ( one layer), under the front axle ( one layer) and under the rear axle(three layers). The body is free to roll, but without sanding it : we make a controlled distortion with hot air to enlarge it.


I hope this will help.
Bye

Where does one acquire stick on lead sheeting that thin? I've used 10gm and 5gm stick on wheels weights but that is even better for lowering the COG.

P.s. As a matter of interest ( I have one of these cars on order), how would your non magnet car go versus a stock but sorted magnet BMW?

I have bought lead stick 0.5 mm thick from NSR (www. nsrslot.it/ ) here in Italy, but I think they will send everywhere in the world, and also have many other good slot products (see NSR electronic controllers and light wheels/tyres).
I have raced Ninco BMW with and without mag : now in our club we will make races with BMW, magnet and the Boxer motor from slot.it. The car has the standard Ninco gears and wheels, only with thin tyres at the front; they are very very fast and driveable and, since all of us have the same cars the races will be very competitive. On the other hand here in Italy we have races called DTM1 and 2, in which the car of choice for almost all, and me too, were Ninco BMW, strictly without magnets and with Ninco Nc1 ans Nc2 respectively; obviously the cars were centered with lead : mine was that in the photo above; since I have run them with and without magnets, I can say that without has more difficulty but is more rewarding when everything goes well; with is certainly faster, but more "automatic"
and less enjoyable to see as an onlooker.
Ciao
