  • Stock cars from carrera

    When you buy and receive your cars (24's or 32's), there is a pack of extra braids, guide, etc. I see no difference between the 1/32 and 1/24 extra braids and guides. Yes there is mirrors, but the braids and guides look the same! Is the correct and I can put them into either size car?

    Also, are there better guides or braids? I assume there are better tires, motors, etc...

      Stock brushes and guides are the same for Carrera 1/32 & 1/24. Frankenslot and SlotInvasion have replacement guides that perform better than the stock guides - a bit deeper, a tighter fit into the chassis - I personally use the Frankenslot's on everything

      Cheers

        There are aftermarket tyres. A few options available in urethane and silicone. Paul Gage and Quickslicks do tyres. I think Cincyslots has some tyres as well not sure of the brand name. There are other options as well.

          Yep, you can replace every part for a better one, if you want. As mentioned above, yes the braid is interchangeable between the scales.

          Replacement tires is a rabbit hole... BRM, NSR and Slot.it make the best rubber. If you want other compounds (Urethane or Silicone) there's no shortage of those too.
          You're better off replacing the wheel if you want to put better rubber on, rather than trying to find a replacement tire. Size the OEM wheel and replace it with a new aluminum one with soft rubber.

            It sounds like Pandora's box or the rabbit hole, once you start it never ends. I would like to take one 1/24 and play with replacement stuff. I think it's starts with a better guide, or a better operator running the car.

              Frankenslot 88201 Universal Guide Keel for Carrera 132/124, first purchase. These say universal, fits both 1/32's and 1.24's? Are there good-better braids?

              So you replace the wheels and then replace the rubber? Any recommendations on new wheels or rubber?

                Does the rim come off or do you replace the rear axial and rim?

                  I believe Carrera use a splined axle (?) so you're best to replace the whole assembly. Take a look here for their starter kits.

                  Be aware that if you switch to silicone tires, you'll end up needing to convert all your cars in order to make them competitive, while keeping your track dust free. Some kind of rubber or urethane tire can be a better choice in order to maintain compatibility.

                    You could just take it one step at a time.
                    Ditch the stock tires and put on replacement rubber, urethane, or silicon.
                    An inexpensive first step with a noticeable improvement.

                      Indeed, and there should be an item around here somewhere on truing plastic wheeels, then gluing and truing tires on them for best results from the stock rims.

                        Reading other threads, it's best to set the parameters.
                        Carrera track-better to use rubber or urethane vice silicone which removes rubber from track. If rubber is laid on track which helps cornering, why use silicone tires? All cars need to run the same compound, stock Carrera tires are rubber? If you own and run 20-30 different cars, cost starts to become high. Is rubber better for a stock Carrera track?

                          Brand new track, not having any rubber deposits, will be more or less equally good with any tire.
                          The "rubber" Carrera uses is known to not be very good, and hardens or turns to goo in a matter of a few years, sometimes less, so replacing them is inevitable. I don't think they'll be leaving much behind to begin with. So, it's more a question of what other kinds of cars you'll be running and what tires those come with.
                          Since pretty much NO cars come with silicone tires, the most cost conscious choice is to keep the original tires, and when they need replacing, replace them with rubber if possible, urethane if not. If you replace old tires with silicone, then you might as well toss all the rubber and urethane and replace everything with silicone.

                            Thank u for your feedback, thus setting the parameters. I'll most likely only buy Carrera's and digital. Rubber tires as you said, no silicone. I've read that Carrera tires are hard and I see it on the track, they skip or bounce. I'm still learning what and how to maintain them, next would be the basic upgrades. Tires being the first. So rubber tires; the who, what and where comes next? I think I want to pick two cars (32 & 24) and make the upgrade. Then watch to see how much improvement they produce. I assume the back is more important than the front?

                              Well your first obstacle is finding stock replacement tires. Carrera stopped making replacement parts available years ago and that includes tires. What parts you see out there are all that's left. I buy them whenever I see them even if I don't need them. I buy them for the front tires as PG only makes a small selection of front tires.

                              As stated, Carrera tires leave a lot to be desired. Even trued Carrera tires cannot compete with urethanes. The compound is too hard. If you choose silicone make sure all the tires are being made for the cars you have or may want to have. 1/32 scale should be pretty easy but 1/24 cars you are limited.
