The round one one the Fabia is the newest invention from Scaly.
Its easy to change the braids on that type of guide.
On Scaly track, i guess, they work fine.
The blue and black, i think, are the same just different colors.

Not quite. The older black ones have a longer post, and have no notch for a centering spring like the blue ones.

if i spin out on a corner with either the fabia or the black guides, i just reslot and drive on (after putting the black ones straite) but if i deslot wiv the blue ones, theres a loud CLICK as the guide comes out of its hole, so u have to lift the car up, replace the guide, and then reslot. it means that time taken reslotting is more than doubled, wich sux in colse races!

You could try opening the hole for the guide to swing more, but sounds like you really need to keep that rear-end tucked in better.

The blue ones are supposed to self centre so that you can put the car back in the slot withought having to straighten the guide. If yours goes "click" and needs re-aligning, then it is faulty...the spring is probably out of the notch at the top of the post.

Aircon .... at uni... in UK.... Sheesh, modern youth


Cheers, Tom.

its a brand new building, and its its more an air circulating system, but it still sux. i looked insode my yelow opel DTM (the worst culprit for clicking guides) and found that the pring is in place fine, but when the guide turnes, the sring just lifts up and out of the grove, meaning it doesnt self center at all!!!
