Thanks very much for the reminder, Inte.
It's time I actually purchased one of these, even though I currently have no working track at home.
Got to plan for the future.

This unit is available in both 25 and 40 amp variants and, as far as I can see, is the best value Power Supply Unit readily available in UK. (The US guys get much better deals)

For those interested, here is the Rapid Electronics PSUs link, which gets you a largish PDF document and the particular unit is, about three screens up from the bottom of the document.
Later Edit: IF that link no longer works, (revamp of Rapid Electronics' web site) then please try THIS ONE

Order codes are
85-1824 for the 25 amp model
85-1828 for the 40 amp model
Voltage is variable over 3-15 volts, with an additional fixed mode of 13.5 volts - a sensible standard figure for slot racing, but with the facility to vary if you prefer.

It sounds as though there is something wrong somewhere, Nuro.
Maybe a fault in the PSU?
These motors shoud run fine on as little as 12 volts, which used to be the standard figure. But, if amperage is lacking or bad connections anywhere, this would have a detrimental effect. The usul reason for poor performance is lack of amps rather than lack of volts. Are you in a position to meter the circuitry to see what is really happening?
Our own Graham recommends these particular PSUs and it is only due to him that I even know about them - he has tremendous knowledge of all things technical!
