Rattling Front Axles

2038 Views 10 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  300SLR
I have two great cars, a Racer 250LM and a MB Sloter Lola T280 (white kit), both of which make an annoying rattling noise! I believe I have identified it as the solid front axles sliding up and down in the "oval" shaped chassis moldings. Certainly it is the case on the Lola.

Its almost like they need a mini spring or a piece of sponge jammed in there. Any ideas on how to dampen this?

1. Remove ends of axles or washer any excessive sideways slop.

2. Leave all the up and down movement as it's supposed to be there to allow a slotcar to move correctly into curves and straighten out again afterwards. 1mm to 2mm up and down movement is ideal.

3. Live with a bit of noise! If you want the quiet life then grow flowers
