It is just one car, all my others seem to be fine. It's a tomy turbo chassis with some upgraded traction magnets. It actually goes really well, but I just wondered if I would be losing power as a result of this. I will get some new pickups and springs from Tony and see how it goes. I will stick on a picture on when I get a minute.
I've noticed with stronger traction mags the pick-ups get more punishment. Jon (I think) was getting a lot of wear and blackening of the shoes on his G3 last Sunday. So long as you give the pick-ups a clean after each heat, you should have no loss of performance.
The strong mags could also mean the springs are getting over-compressed and losing their 'springy-ness' over time. New springs, doubling up the springs (if legal in the class you're running) or thicker BSRT springs (again, if legal) could be solutions.
