Can you use a DPR from Scalextric in a 20K motor? Not toto hot?

Also, presume that this has fixed front axle with no steering, right?

Cheers!

I've never seen Scaley F1 cars with the steering. I think this is SCX feature only...

Me too. I also use DPR chip with Hamilton's F1 (Scaley club car from 2008) and never had an issue with it.

Thanks for the feedback.

I read about Ninco (I think) F1 cars with front steering which sounded intriguing.

If anyone knows about steerable front wheels, any info and comments would be appreciated. I would think that steerable front wheels would reduce the friction of the tires on the track.

Comments?


Cheers!

Unfortunately, it will be like all Scaley F1s since they introduced the FF motors. Look amazing, and go great... in a straight line. Just don't expect it to turn corners.
