I have been asked by a friend of mine what is a better car for racing. A Micro Scaletrix, Tomy Turbo or a Tyco? I didn't know the answer so I thought I would offer this to the masses that are in the know. Basically will the MS stand a chance in a race around a track against the other two?

I would say the Micro would win, especially on it's own track, but the braids will play you up. Speak to Marc, he is looking at using much superior brands of braid and generally doing some proper racing with this much overlooked chassis...

If it is on Scaley track - then the scaleys will win hands down. Exept for my Lifelike I won't now be buying any non scaley cars. The Tycos have proved a pain in the a***. Had no braid issues to date either, and to be honest would rather that than metal prongs oxidising or wearing out the track surface.

On Tomy track the Tyco will win, on MS track I think it would probably be the Turbo, I tried a Turbo on MS track and it was super quick and really stuck down, but the high rails eat into the pickups.
But don't get me wrong, I really like the MS cars but they really need to be raced against other MS cars as the standard motor has loads of torque but lacks top speed.

Short answer, no


Even the slowest of chassis (slow motor) would be quicker, but if the micro chassis had a 'Tomy Turbo' motor in then yes it has the best of chances.


We are racing Supercar Micro's tomorrow night, in the support event to the Super F1 series starter!


You can see how they go then
