Motors for Scalextric F1's

1215 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.

Definately change the ratio. MRRC do an 8T plastic pinion or if you really want to go for Proslot do a 8T pinion and a 30T crownwheel (from the GT1 Toyota).

Be a little careful with the pinion a take a small round needle file to the inside to allow it to slip on to the motor output shaft a little easier. The plastic is a little brittle and might crack.

A Ninco NC4 would be a good move too. You may need to trim around the motor pod though.
