Motors for Scalextric F1's

1219 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Mr Croker

I have a couple of scalextric F1 cars , I have put on some indy grips along with a professor motor gold magnet and although I now got loads of grip the magnet is a bit to strong for the motor

I am new to the changing the motor scene and was wondering if someone could
advise me to which is the best drop in replacement for this motor ?
Max straight is not much above 8-9 standard straights (so say 3 meters).
I don't want to change rear axel or crown , just want a drop in replacement
motor - so must have crown attached , really after a motor with
more torque but higher top end would be nice as well.

Thanks in advance.

QUOTE with that short distance - it does seem to me that the greatest concern is hardly 'maximum speed' but rather 'maximum acceleration'
That was why I was asking about motors that would provide me with more
torque than anything , with greater torque I will get upto higher speed quicker,
so in theory should give me a higher top end.
Thanks for that - will have a look at changing the crown.
