Hello All,
As above. I've just taken the car out of the box.
Things I've noticed are;
The body is loose.
The tyres aren't solid
Metal drive gear

Any tips before I run it will be appreciated.

Things I've noticed are;
The body is loose. It's supposed to be, it's called "floating", makes the car handle better and go faster. A good thing.
The tyres aren't solid They're not supposed to be, part of NSRs "Air System", with performance in focus. A good thing.
Metal drive gear It's supposed to be, metal is tougher than plastic, less likely to wear out any time soon. A good thing.

Any tips before I run it will be appreciated.
No tips needed. NSR is the only brand that delivers true RTR cars, handcrafted, tuned and adjusted OOTB. A good thing.

Awesome. Thanks.

How do slot it rate?
I have my eye on a few of those.
I own one but boxed it years ago as it was the first 956 ken wood release?

I disagree with chapman. before running an nsr you absolutely have to glue the rear tyres on, otherwise they will balloon around the wheels at speed.

Depends what surface your running it on, and how you drive

Hi Turismo,

I always glue my NSR tyres on, makes them run much smoother. Use some lighter fluid on a rag to remove the moulding release agent on the inside of the tyres, then glue with superglue. I always true the tyres to make sure they run level and all the tyre is touching the track.

The motors in NSRs have a tendency to move a little in the motor pod, so I glue that in with hot glue. Also glue the bearings by popping them out, apply a tiny amount of superglue in the gap, and pop the rear axle section back in.

Then have a play by undoing the screws until it runs how you want.

Regards
Jon

Can I ask how you glue the tyers on. Do you spread the glue around or just drop on a few dots? If the latter how many?

Ey Up SOF,

You need a cocktail stick !.

The operation is very quick, and easier if the hub is mounted on an axle.

1. Fit the tyre on the rim.

2. Pinch the tyre gently so a "space" is formed against the hub.

3. Dip the cocktail stick in the super-glue, then quickly but carefully insert into the "space", then twist it around the wheel.
( this spreads a film of super-glue around the circumference between wheel and tyre. )

4. Turn wheel over and do the other side.

Voila !!.

What makes you think you need to adjust or tune anything?

Don't feel pressured to fiddle around, but just race it and enjoy.

Nothing really.
I just know that a normal car (scalextric) can be improved with a few simple things, I was wondering if this is the same.
