  • BRM NSU white kit paint job.

    Picked up a BRM NSU white kit.

    These cars are a ton of fun - they aren't a lot bigger than a 1/32 car so you can run them on 1/32 lane spacing track. They have a nice metal chassis no magnet a 19k motor and metal wheels all round. Looking forward to them bringing out more cars.











    cheers

      Rules for these cars? Do you change the rear camber angle? How do you do that without rear axle binding?

          In Denmark we use them standard, it is allowed to adjust the car but you cannot change anything, add or remove weight, this is a very fun starter class where newcomers car start up without the skill us old racers have, so no tuning, just fun racing.

          why do you want to change camber? this is giving you a fun driving, but you can adjust the toe in/out a little, I use a little toe in just like real 1/1 backwheels driven cars, that give the best handling out of the corners.

            Can you tell us the overall length, width and height? I have a very tight single lane hill climb and would love one of these but fear it may not fit?

                Thanks Ron,
                If the track is 67mm doesn't that mean the overall width is wider? I always thought that the track is to the centre of the wheel.

                  hi sof

                  Track on real 1:1 cars is measured between the center of tread of the tire on either side of the car. For some bizarre reason slot car "track" measurements seem to be measured between the outer sidewalls of either tire - not sure why, when or where this confusing difference in nomenclature between the real and model worlds arose, but that's how the current definitions stand.

                  So in this case the maximum body width (looks like its at the fender flares) and the scale "track" are very nearly the same.

                  cheers

                    The cars are 70 mm wide, they drive without problem on a scalextric track, i did made some measurement in a r15 corner with very low speed i need 75 mm inside the slot, outside 100 is enough from slot to barrier. When i really try hard to sving the backend
