Hi There


We have run a small, highly social slot club in my garage for the last 15 years or so.

4-Lane Scaley classic track - several classes mostly out of box Scaley and Ninco and only interference is trued/glued tyres and the usual lubrication and maintainence that you would expect (also the oddbit of weight here and there when required and Ortmanns on some classes.) I keep and maintain all of the cars to keep them running equal.

Have just got half a dozen new Scaley Porsche GT1s at a great price and we will race them next season as a new class.

Want to have a play though and upgrade the running gear on them all to experiment and try to understand better the effect of gear ratios etc. I get the theory, but would like to 'feel the difference' so to speak and race one ratio against another to compare.

So, can anyone amongst the experts here suggest a combi of axle/crown/pinion,bush and hub/tyre that will fit these particular cars?

Another thing, I like cars to look right, so inserts on the hubs essential - not keen on ali discs on show.

Thanks in advance,

Best Regards,

Chris

Thanks Screwneck,

I've had a Ninco tool for years and you're right - works just fine. The motors are inline on the GT1s. I tell you though, for a amateur fettler its a bit of a minefield! I get all the ratio/speed acceleration thing and fancied a bit of an experiment with these cars to be honest, so last night I had a muck about with some scaley hop-up parts I bought some time ago for this purpose (bushes/crown/pinion/axle/ali hubs and sili tyres - for 'le mans style car'). Guess what - all fitted together beautifully - apart from the fact that once the tyres were on they fouled on the arches!

Must say though, not a big fan of having to buy a box of five different ratio/length everything, and why on earth have the crown element of the drive in three different bits?

Thats why I thought I'd try somebody elses stuff!

Thanks for the replies.

Best Regards,

Chris
