It's a fast motor (obviously) but I have only used it in metal chassis cars with sponge tyres. I suspect wheelspin might be a problem in plastic chassis cars?

the falcon is a good motor but needs a good psu , I would say its ok for mag use on a very fast track or in a brsca style chasis but keep to 25k or 29k for home and scaley use with out mags .I have one in a viper and its stupidly fast but fun

Brilliant with loads of magnet, doesn't heat up like the Cheetah II. Way too much for non mag cars. Even a 37k rpm motor is too much for most non-mags, even with a lot of lead....

I installed a Falcon in an Scaly IRL, a little reshaping of the mounts and some glue and she was good to go.

DE38 - So you can use a 46.000 RPM motor in a plastic car (as long as you drives with magnet)

Which one should i go for, without magnets? (for the same car, Scaly IRL)

The Falcon is definitely a little too much motor for nonmag on a plastic track, it would probably take quite a bit of lead to get it to hook up . If your looking for major speed , I would suggest the Scaleauto 35000 red can motor , as it is a drop in with no need for any modifications to the mount. Iset up another IRL car with this motor with foam tires and weight and deep guide to run on a big comm. track , it runs great.

Did you have to change the gear ratios to use all those revs ?

I have used a Scaleauto 35K in a Fly Lister Storm. No good at corners, it just made a grinding noise. The corners where made up of 2x45 degree Scalextric Classic corners.
