Foroslot.

Milan's cars are wonderful......I have two of them and they are stunning.

Does your Ferrari have his new chassis?....

Regards

It can be amazing but all my cars never touch track, I am a collector, so I can't answer you about behaviour on track, about chasis,...
All I can tell you is that this car is a jewel for a collector.

I have got two of these cars from Milan (one the same livery as the one shown above and the other is in the olive garden livery) They have different chassis (i would post pics but digi camera not playing ball), but both are fantastic and quick once i'd replaced the foam tyres with rubber scalextric ones (all i had at the time) They don't have magnets and lap fantasticlly quick.
The only work i have done on either is oiled the moving parts and trued the scaley rear tyre (still foam on front).

These are probaly my 2 fav cars in my collection. I acn not recomend Milans cars highly enough.

Hey Wayne,
I also have the no. 88, but don´t run it as it has those foam-tires. How do I get the foam of the rims? Or do you replace the hubs (for Slot-it) as well???? I wont mingle with the car untill I know for sure.

Hey Dannyboy

To get the foam of the wheels which was very well glued on. I just cut the foam with a modeling knife taking off as much as possible. Then i ran the wheels over some sand paper as if truing the tyres until all the foam was rubbed away. Then i put on some new scaley tyres (xj220) and then trued them and it's been great, handles really well.

The wheels are connected to the axle with a screw (allen key head) so replacing the wheels and tyres should not be difficult , theonly reason i didn't replace the whole wheel and tyre combo is that i really like the wheels, so i just replaced the rear tyres.

Hope this helps
Wayne

Thanx Wayne,
I like the inserts/wheels as well, thats why I was so hesitant to do something about it. How do you fit the Scaley-tires? I mean, the rim must be flat? Do you glue them on or.......? And do you know of any silicones that will fit the rim?

Hi Danny
Yes the rims are flat. But i have found the scaley tyres are a VERY tight fit and as such needed no gluing.
