AW and buy the latest release of the car as they have better motors and have the newer lowered motor mount and better chassis that the old ones.
Alternatively you might think about building one yourself with the new Tripod mount chassis, body kit etc.
Hi rudio, I have used all types of motor configurations in the Mosler. My track is painted MDF and the sidewinder i found is easier to drive than the angle winder. Wise words from pete-slot re buying the latest car BUT it seems to be determined by the circuit layout ie; radius of bends and length of straights as to which is best.
Some of our members have tried the latest tripod chassis but found it inferior on our track to the conventional AW or SW but to be fair this was in the Porsches and the latest Audis. It appears you have to do more to the tripod chassis to get them to work well but the Mosler chassis far less.
All i will say is that the NSR Mosler is an awesome car so if you can try one at your local club in AW and SW then you will know what suits your driving style best. Good Luck. Mike
I have a NSR Mosler and I found that it had too much power to run without a magnet, even at 10 volts. Perhaps on a very high grip surface the stock motor would work better. The car now has a Slot.it 21.5K motor, a Shark 22 would have about the same performance. My car has the sidewinder pod with spring suspension. As it came the splitter at the front of the car wanted to drag on the track and the front tires were not planted firmly. I had to shim the front axle to get the front tires on the track and raise the splitter a bit.
I find my Sidewinder easier to drive and am faster with it than my anglewinder which I suspect is the faster car driven differently.
Cars run no magnet on Carrera track at home and on painted wood at club.
