It occurred to me with the current trend among slotcar manufactures to place the motor as in the real car , why has nobody tried it for the 911 ?
I checked the clearance in my scalex body and there seems lots of room for a mini motor behind the rear axle . Has anybody tried this and if so how did it handle ?

This is a very interesting subject since Fly are about to release a 911. They seem pretty keen on their motor positioning normally, so maybe this is why the release is being delayed
.
Looking forward to hearing about your cars handling Al! I've been thinking about trying it myself, but stopped at the fear of wheelies as mentioned above...

I was going to give it a go but unfortunately ran out of mini motors : (
( do you have any in stock Al ? )
As I run on a wood track I always use brass and wire chassis , considering the light weight of the motor I don't feel it would compromise the handling much more than a front mounted motor .
