Interesting post and quite the coincidence given a slot car running gear "makeover" that I just recently completed. I have owned a Carrera Ferrari P4 for some years now and would occasionally run it in our 1/24 class. But it really was an absolute dog! Not only was the motor and straight line performance anemic, the handling was poor. I did try improve it is a slot car by just re-motoring it but with scant success. All that did was to turn it into a slightly-faster-in-a-straight-line dog! It is, however, a gorgeous model, so I had two options: rework it somewhat radically to make it run decently or just accept it as a pretty model. I decided on the former option, but while doing that, I did some before and after photographs to document the process. And to me, these photographs really highlighted how very pretty the Carrera model is. I think it would not be a bad static model at all. A better static model than slot car as it comes out the box, that's for sure! 😄

Now it runs beautifully, so it has been saved from a static display future!
