Hi people, new users with two questions:

What Slot.It tyre compounds have people found work best on Scaley Classic track? Not looking to shave tenths of a second off lap times, but if we're going to buy tyres (to go with Slot.It wheels before anyone asks), might as well buy the correct ones! I've seen two charts from Slot.It which seem to contradict each other; one suggest P1, P2 or P3, whilst the other indicates C1. What is the difference between C and P compounds anyway?

Secondly, what is the hottest motor a standard classic Scaley controller will safely handle? Yes, better controllers are on the cards eventually, but until then the question still stands. I'm looking to upgrade some of the heavier cars with a Slot.It Orange End Bell motor, similar RPM but roughly twice the torque of a standard Scaley one. Will that be OK?

Thank you for your time.

Hi Understeer,
Possibly try P6 compound (rubber) for Scalextric classic track or, I believe, the C1 compound is also recommended. For better performance try the S1 or S2 compound (silicone) tires on yor Scalextric track; they seem to work well. I am not sure what the "C" compound is though.

Cheers,

Thanks for that. Interestingly Slot It suggest P6 for the newer smooth Scaley Sport track (as well as Carrera track and wood which are both smooth) on one of their charts, and don't list it at all on the other (don't you just love consistency?!)
