I was rather dismayed to rummage through some cars the other day; only to find that the same had appeared to affect the Scalextric F1 cars (1988-1996). The type fitted with the sticky Good Year Eagle tyres (Yellow sidewall writing).

Also to prevent browning typically found on old White cars (can affect others)carefully remove the tyres before storing, typically the browning or yellowing effect begins around the wheel wells.

Your point about completely stripping a car down is spot on, totally agree as to the safest course of action to prevent discolouration.

However I didn't mention completely stripping cars because maybe in 10 years time when readers begin to resemble cars due to advice sought on this forum...

... they discover that they have lost the wheels for a prized Bugatti...

... then come looking for those responsible...


Scott's tip for Ortman tyres is a good one, however authenticity goes out the window because the cars tend to run better with Ortmann Uber tyres than original Super Slix! (cool name)
