i went down to my model shop yesterday and they had loads of good deals on, so im trying to decide what to get. either the
fly lola (£20)
or the fly 911 evo2 rs (£25)

im at the moment leaning towards the rs coz its usually £35 and i need a good non magnet car.......

I spent a couple of hours working on my 911 Evo2 RS to get it going properly. I was really frustrated with it at first, but it is now my best non-mag car.

I have both; I prefer the Fly Porsche RS Evo2 , without mag, with a V12 29000 (or Scaleauto 35000) , NSR wheels and tyres, and some lead under the rear axle and on the sides of the chassis : very fast and strong.

My advice is to buy the Lola B98 because it's a car that will race both with and without magnet very well.
Recently at my first outting on a wood track I came second in field of 19 racers with the B98/10. I beat plenty of RS Evos but the winner was also one.
On scaley track the B98 is the fastest car we have of a range of about 130 cars.

so it looks like the rs has won ,question 2 being do you have to cut or modify the car in any way to get the slot it axel in the back would of thougnht that the only problem could come in the form of the tyres not getting under the body i will talk to my m8 who races slot cars (the only one i have that races) and see if we could do a couple of races for non mag cars only.....
i need to get the hang of no mag racing , i took the mag out of my nascar and it was so much more chalenging as to be unbeliveable youve got to work so hard to keep controll when it drifts as my track hasent got barriers all the way around at the moment but i think no mag racing will be a lot of fun as i get better at it, i think ill have to spend another sevral hours learning again , i used to race no mag all the time on my old cars but the tyres are so bad now they just cant be raced anymore without new tyres if anyone has a good suggestion as to where i can buy new tyres for ancient scalextric cars

You have to buy the axle, the crown gear and the wheels; slot it will work; no need to cut the body or the chassis. Pendle has them all; at the front I have kept the originals well rounded. I have also changed the guide with one from slot-it, with brass insert in the chassis, as TSRF said.

it'll run, but when the crown gear gives up it's a a trip to the nearest computer or phone to ring (Sean) favourite e-tailer to ask for the rear axle kit
