I will make my Challenger work on the R1 curs lol

OK who can tell me what the strongest bar magnet you can get that will fit straight into a modern scalextric car (i.e challenger), I hear there is a mag 20% stronger? And what are the most grippiest tyres you can get for the challenger sized wheels (same as all the scalextric rally cars etc)

I order my parts from get slotted so if they r on there its a big bonus.

Thanks very much.

i think cyroutes method is better than adding even more magnets.

but with magnets, the distance from the track makes a huge difference, and it is probably worth experimenting with placing your magnets rather than buying different brands of magnet.

If there is space under the chassis rather than inside the car, try gluing the magnet there. coat the magnet with superglue or sellotape so it doesnt short the rails if it grounds out or comes off.

if its still too weak and too far from the rails, add shims - the thickness of a sheet of paper can make a big difference.

Also - the placement of the magnet regarding the front-back of the car makes a difference to how the car will handle, there are a lot of variables!
