  • WTB Scalextric Mercedes AMG GT3 Rear Axle Assembly

    Looking for one with straight axles and true wheels.
    Have club car with wonky rear wheels; would like to keep stock if possible.
    Terribly disappointed in Scalextric quality, especially considering car is limited edition.

    Just a thought, but usiing the manufacturer code for that car (C????) maybe check the Scalextric Service Sheets (hosted on their UK site). It might help identify the part you're after.

      Sadly the problem started when many on the old BBS posts in the early days of my Company importing Scalextric into the USA.
      Then Scalextric used 3/32" axles, not drill blanks but. the correct size to fit aftermarket metal wheels on.

      Peoplcomplained about wheels falling off, especially over time. The advise was a little drop of glue and refit them. They ran true unless the hub Center was worn out or cracked. After this fix they were fine for a long time.

      But Scalextric listened to the noise and decide to fix the issue.

      So they knurled the end of the axles and pressed on the wheels.

      This ment wheels often went on slightly crooked, and then for ever ran out of true.

      Even worse they had to fit oversized axle bearing to clear the knurled on the end of the axles before fitting the wheels.

      I hate knimurled axles, but the noise is what created this issue.

      Without a knurled in the end wheels should be true running.
      Also you can the fit aftermarket alloy wheels also.

      Sorry to hear your wheels do not run true, sadly you are not alone.

      I do have NOS Scalextric axles without the knurled, and often use them to repair cars and then fit better wheels too.

      I guess be careful of what you wish. Certainly was not a great solution.
