I'm seriously considering getting a Ninco Austin-Healey 3000 as they're one of my faves (not as pretentious as many a classic and with lots of grunt).

I'm going to run it without magnets so what do you lot reckon - keep the NC2, go for what seems the most popular and put in an NC1 or try an NC5?

All replies gratefully received!

If you would like to use it sensibly and not end up with missing pieces from some very spectacular crashes then i would swap over to a NC-1.............there is just way too much power in the NC-2 for these things, they are too delicate with their nice shiny chrome

I agree with the NC-1 for non mag running, I like mine much better since the switch. If you run a long track, you could go with a 10t pinion on the NC-1 or an NC-5. The NC-2 just has too much low end torque for these little cars IMO.

Good choice


These cars are the most fun to drive of the classics I've used on magnetic track. Loads of controllable slide and tremendous oompf on the straight. NC2 is a little over-powerful so a higher rpm NC3 upwards motor would be a joke. An NC1 motor with a Ninco adapter shim set would be interesting, but you'd lose a bit of power down a long straight. An NC1 would, however, reduce some slide and make the car even more controllable, so you'd probably end up with similar lap time on some layouts.

Have fun (you can't avoid it with this car).
