Hi Slotnuts,

The pancake chassis we are racing now at AVHORA, is either the original AFX Magnatraction or the Autoworld equivalent. Using the original AFX tyres the cars still have no grip, but fitted with silicone tyres the situation improves. Remembering the AFX chassis is 30+ years old it takes some selection to find a fast one, the Autoworld effort of course is new but sloppy manufacturing and tolerances mean that getting a good one again is a matter of selection or luck! We at AVHORA have decided to resurect the idea of racing these chassis, all of us having raced or still do race the magnet missiles of today. It really is just another dicipline of the slotcar challenge, learning a new skill of babying a car around a track at the highest possible speed. If you go the AVHORA page of this forum you will see our videos of us racing them in the UK.

Oh and I forgot we like the old bodies too!!

What is your location, in the UK? If so why not come along to our next meeting and take the challenge for yourself!
