    I have a Marcos:
    • Ground the front tyres down until the guide was properly sitting in the slot and the tyres just touching the track (glued/trued/coated).
    • Shimmed the rear axles up to lower the rear of the chassis a little.
    • Glued/trued the rear tyres. The standard rubber reacts to oil well...a little too well as it's prone to balling-up but not overly detrimentally.
    • I tried the softer rear tyres but the standard ones were quicker.
    • Backed off the body screws a little and put a piece of duck tape across the underside of the car large enough to also cover all 4 body screws to prevent them falling out.
    • Fit a Sloting plus guide as the original one snapped - this is where the only real mod came in to the chassis, I ground a little more rotational room for the guide so it wouldn't break the guide again in a sharp bend when the rear end fishtailed too far.
    • No added ballast at all
    • It's quick enough to beat most NSR Moslers on club night...even with that stock motor & gearing but you have to drive these differently, they can go deeper into bends and like the brakes backing off a bit.

      I think people get confused regarding the front wheels. As they are carried by the body not the guide/motor rear axle part of the chassis.
      This could be why it worked with longer nuts at the front taking front tire pressure off the guide.

        Thanks for confirming thoughts on the one I will modify. Kevan

          Porsche is finished and the Supra I received Monday and painted. Front tires are trued, I will true and glue the 25 shore rears tomorrow. Gear mesh is set and bearings are aligned. Both will compete in the Revoslot proxy
