    Perhaps you should run like against like?
    At 10.5 volt how difficult can it be?
    Most slotcar motors are measured at 12.5 to 14.5 volts?
    RevoSlot cars do not allow nearly as much guide rotation as other comparably priced models. Period. There are conditions where this is decidedly a problem and all the rationalization in the world will not change that. Since removing material around the guide post that restricts rotation corrects the problem, your arguments are moot.

      For what it's worth, our club ran the RevoSlots as a class (we're a non-mag club) again a few months back. We have roughly 30 of them between the 12 of us (I have 5) and we run on painted Carrera and wood with SuperTires. No complaints or issues whatsoever.

        Ed ,
        I have no idea what your talking about. with quality issues. Besides running a 1/32 scale REVO class in New England and Modelville Hobby, we have had no quality issues with the REVO cars

          two out of four of mine have spur gear issues.

            Which I assume have been replaced by your retailer. An annoyance, but at least the parts are available and fully backed by the distributor.

              We certainly stand behind all products we import and sell.

              Sadly there have been gears imported from other markets, and while I will help even then I
              can best afford to support product imported by my company.
              What problems are you experiencing, I looked and they were not purchased from my Store.

              Call and I will help, send the gears back with the packaging so we can check that counterfeit
              parts are not being sold as RevoSlot.

              Sincerely

                  I have three Revoslots (Toyota GT1, Viper, Marcos) They get driven regularly and driven hard. I've had nothing fail. Other than gear mesh adjustment on two of the cars they've needed no other tuning.

                    We set up cars by checking all screws and adding loctite blue to prevent cars losing screws during racing. We also align axle uprights and check bearing fit if need be adding a spot of loctite to keep bearings from moving.
                    We set up gear mesh, break in the gears and reset. Then lube with white lithium grease.
                    We true tires, oil bearings and race. No added weight we run them stock.
                    GT2 on stock factory supplied rear tires GT 1 on RevoSlot sponge rear tires.

                    A very easy car to set up, fast, fun and zero gear issues once prepared correctly here.

                    We have race 10,000's of laps with all levels of drivers. Some do nothing to their cars and there are no failures here at all.

                      Sounds to me like you're comparing plastic chassis to aluminium and trying to drive them the same!

                      Think that's more of a you problem and not a Revoslot problem?

                      Surely you should know different brands drive differently?

                        Have you compared RevoSlot guide rotation with NSR or ThunderSlot?

                          I don't think anyone is saying that the amount of rotation allowed on the RevoSlot is less than the amount allowed on other (plastic usually) chassis. I believe the point is that it doesn't matter. If you're driving the car with such wild abandon that you are reaching that stop point, then you're not getting the best possible lap times with the car. The best lap times will have a little slide, sure, but when you're reaching that stop angle, you've gone too far already. If you back it off a notch, and focus on your braking and acceleration points, keeping the tail over the rails (braids/tape/whatever), then your lap times will improve. Sliding that much is losing grip, and therefore time. While it might seem you're going slower when you don't slide out so much, you're actually going faster in the long run.

                          But, if your enjoyment of the hobby comes from drifting nice and wide, then take a file to the chassis, or buy other cars.

                            I entered a Revo Viper in a very fast and very competitive GT3 proxy. No problems with either gears or guide through the course of the 11 round proxy: when I got it back the car was running as sweetly as the day I sent it out. Never had an issue with gears or guides on my other 2 Revos either. The car was reasonably competitive with the only issue being that the Revo tyres tended to gum/ball up as they warmed up after >10 laps. My bad: I should have noticed that during preparation/testing.

                              I can't control how other inexperienced racers perform on my track. I have removed material that limits guide rotation from the RevoSlot cars I have and won't buy any more. Slot car racing is not popular around here, so you have to create an environment that attracts a variety of participants. I don't live in your ideal world.

                                RevoSlot cars are not for everyone.
                                Please buy what helps grow Slot Car Racing in your area.
                                The only concern here is the spin that there is something wrong with RevoSlot design, there is not.
                                Not designed for drifting or smashing the steering stops though!!!!

                                If your new racers do not learn it is about control you will see broken chassis loops on plastic chassis cars. Sideways is not forward, but as I said before you found a solution, sad that you will not buy more RevoSlots. But any Slotcar that grows this almost invisible Hobby is great.

                                I hope you can instill in your racers that it is about control so they learn to enjoy the Hobby. If all they want to do is go Sideways then I feel you have an uphill battle.
