so i've got aload of cars from about 20years ago, and having recently purchased my first sport track, i've noticed most of my old cars cant seem to get an grip at all on the track. ive tried 2x le mans, 3x F1, some old escorts, and none are able to grip the sport track like the gripped the vintage track.

anyone got any idea's or types of tyres that suit F1, le mans, xr3i's etc to help them grip, or is there a different method?

thanks in advanced

i basically ordered the same tyres that where already on the cars. ive noticed that the newer cars' magnet, really puls them down, where as the older cars, either dont have a magnet or the magnet is no where near as powerful as the newer ones

thanks for that riko. Its been frustrating, but its given me the chance to design a track which i've decided, will have one track of sport, and one track or classic, mostly so i dont need to mess about with my old cars to get them on digital, but the classic section, will sit ontop of the sport section. fun times ahead.

as for the grip, i couldnt believe the difference with the sport track being so smooth and older cars just cant go round one bend at a slow pace where they would be flyin round on the classic stuff.

as for the tyres, im guessing its just a like for like replacement with the start types eg. classic f1 the same as start f1?

thanks again

lol Flip, i would maybe have to video record how bad the grip is...basically, as soon as i accelarate, the cars back end goes left and rite, and thats not even throttle half in. the tyres ive replaced on all the cars, about 6 weeks ago. hadent heard of any wd-40 tip, so will have a look for that now n try that. ive got a few autoart cars but theyre shelf cars, like alot of the newer ones ive got boxed.

thanks again

lol i got scared! kidden on! just had a few things to do and not had time to get online.

tbh, i wasnt expecting a one post answer , as everyones different, but at the same time....i wasnt expecting nearly 4 pages of different things to try. suppose i thought with sport track being around for a while, that people wouldve had a solution.

thanks for the offer with the tyres (keyandslots), i'm in ireland at the moment, and tbh, i've had a fair few thigns lost in the post. tho i'll be goin back to scotland for xmas so that could be an option, just have to clear it with my dad first.

a few ppl have mentioned about ninco track and the wood track route, but tbh, i dont really wanna fork out to much money at the moment, and as i mite be moving house soon, i've dismantled the track i have (although still working on a new layout on the comp) and need a few bits of track to finish it. Although i like scalex stuff, i dont wanna dive to far into the hobby (in fear of spending to much money and becoming poor on a month to month basis), i've got about 69 cars now, and most of the new ones that i've obtained, are sittin on a shelf, just to show them off really. so racing them isnt a big issue for me, but with the older cars that have been used before, i wouldnt mind having a race with them, so would just be good that, when needed, they went round the track like they go round the classic track. that said.....I am lookin at goin digital, but again, well after xmas and the new house move before that happens.

just to thank everyone for your replys, and i hope there's no bickerin of wd-40 bein oil or not lol

thanks again
