I bought an outfit off e-bay.

Its been a huge disappointment as the tyres just spin, it gets no traction what so ever. The outfit rapidly slides sideways jamming against the slot and then the pinion gear slips on the shaft . . . disaster.

I could do with ordering something sticky and slicky for the rear boots - but I have no idea what to buy or where to buy it from.
If somebody else has had this problem and solved it, could they please point me in the right direction ?

The outfit in question is built say late 1980's early 1990 ~ roughly. I had one outfit back then for a brief period, and after getting the slot car guide to sit a heck of a lot lower, and adding a biro spring suspension it used to go like greased lightning round the track.

Thanks, I have ordered a pair and bookmarked the website.

Having slept on it, I am wondering if my tyres are originals, and its the Green C-282-2 Sidecar - on one website it was date 1980's . . . so maybe the original tyres have just gone off with age ?

You can laugh, but to me it seems like it was yesterday when I bought my first outfit.

I found the picture from the e-bay listing

I can not get the picture to work, but the link works - thats e-bay.
