How plain is the body? Add some decals or similar markings for a personal touch.

I always used to put my spare team associated stickers on all my slot car stuff. I'm thinking of doing a paint job if I buy myself a 'race meet only' car, so make it yours with aesthetics.

I've got it... throw it in the stupid bin and start again and tell us when you have finished, maybe, in a few weeks maybe..

That's a bit harsh isn't it? CG's car can't be that bad...My Policar Ferrari 355 is proof that you can indeed polish a t**d!
So enough of these damning statements.

I'm gonna get a really big flat magnet and mount a slot.it motor mount on the back. Then a guide at the front. Then I'm gonna put a £300, 150,000rpm slot car motor in it. Then I'm gonna add more magnets.

Then I'm gonna throw it away and race my no mag Slot.It Audi.

Last year we had quite a lof of fun with the Scalextric single seaters... (not the F1) and all we did was to take out the magnets and add just a little weight in the front (above the guide). We ran on a 18m Carrera track 14,8 Volt and electronic controllers. Sure there are faster (and better) cars out there - but these cars were quite an enjoyable challenge and they were more than fast enough for our rather technically challenging track...

and another thing - they are only five pounds each...

well, as for chuck it in the bin and demag it.... i put more mags in and sliced even more off the chassis
and now it runs a 3.4sec on my track (the challenger on fast setting gets 5.5sec as best ever normally runs at 5.8 and up

i think that advantage is due to the controller and the extra improovements (if i could call them that? we should make it a sin!!!!
) have no real affect apart from letting you destroy the car even more when it departs from said track

I'm with you all the way Goose!

But surely you can do more in a saloon car than you can do in a single seater?

More space available.

also ive now fitted a 10mm wider axel on the back with the same tyres (black wheels though) after it ate 3 teeth off the crown and ive fitted a 100uF 16v cap in the front to help it over the crossovers a little bit (not to mention the extra motor revs im getting)
i luv this car!!!!
