Dear All,

I have just bought my first scalextric for some years... I am now 28. I went for a scalextric GT interactive set (with 2 Porsche) and I also bought a 2004 scalextric porsche (amongst some others).

Here comes the start of some questions, the 'new' porcshe is over half a second lap quicker than the boxed set cars, first thing you notice is play in the rear axle, and the tyres are solid rubber, the new car having much softer tyres and v little play in the rear axle - so what tyres can you please recommend to sort the 2 cars and make them competitive and more fun? And where is a good source for small washers?

Thanks Chris

Washers - I get mine from B&Q
Tyres - true them on some sandpaper - taking off the surface might reveal a soft rubber underbelly. If not rub some 3in1 in to the tyres - do these a few times over a couple of days. Re true them as they should be nice and soft.
