how to make a silk purse from a sows ear...

Grille removed and mesh added (no not your mesh thomas!
), partly to remove body weight. I reckon I can reduce the heavy body more by replacing the rear and side grilles also.

The whole body sits lower, front tryes are original Carrera but reduced in diameter.

Venturi fins are now back on the righthand car, I didn't see them fall off before taking the pic
Both front and rear inserts were made by cutting down the existing Carrera wheels ( sorry Al, that means no inserts from this particular car)

and all is revealed, Slot.It HRS chassis and running gear, original Carrera lights with the Overdrive adaptor kit for permenant lights.

The car is smooth, responsive and fast with or without magnet. Braking is good and with the version trimmed with a little front end weight (it lifts like a dragster on hard acceleration without weight) it is still a mere 98 grams total. compared with 110 grams for the stock Carrera. I think the removal of the rest of the grilles will see another 5 or 6 grams weight loss.

Pictures aren't working!

I don't even know what car you are talking about! I guess it's the 575.
