I think the older ones are quicker because Scaley wanted lots of speed but now I think they have slowed them down a bit so first time racers can feel that they have some skill-only because the car isn't quick enough to go off very often.

First of all glue the bearing, motor, tyres to rims and rims to axles. Oil and lube everywhere and true the tyres to get rid of the tread. True the front tyres so they are just off the track and varnish them. If this does not produce a fast enough car then:
- uprate to a stronger manget, slot-it v12b 26k or 29k motor and slot it axle, crwon and pinion (ratio depending on type of track), rims with ninco f1 tyres trued to remove tread with a few applications of 3 in 1 oil.

If you run w/o a magnet then the 26k motor is more controllable and maybe play around with a little bit of weight

QUOTE (daleg @ 27 Aug 2004, 12:23)3 in 1 oil on the tyres????

Am I reading that right or going mad???

We're all a bit mad I'm afraid

the 3 in 1 softens the rubber. rub it well in leave it to soak for a while and then rubit dry with a lint free cloth ,then use a piece of gaffer tape to clean the tyres and you get good grip you can also use sun tan lotion/ wd 40 or baby oil for similar results pay yer money take yer choice.
