  • Couple of different questions

    !. I have a AFX F! Texaco-Marlboro McLaren, has G-Plus on the bottom of the chassis. The parts in AFX Super G-Plus and the MEGA G-Plus kits don't look anything like what's in the chassis. (see pictures) 2021-11-18 18.10.37.jpg 2021-11-18 18.09.19.jpg

    2. I have a couple of older cars that die on the same spot on the track, the newer stuff has no problem, ideas?

    3. I have an older AFX pancake, straight shoes that spark as they go around the the track. Have not seen that before except on HO trains.

    I know there a million different answer to these question and I will read everyone, hopefully will see something I didn't think of.

    Thanks.

    Your chassis are the original Aurora G+ chassis from the 1970s. Parts are available from the aftermarket. Try Wizzard HP or BSRT. Old cars need some TLC. Clean the pickups and make sure you are getting good contact with the rails. When cleaning the pickups make sure to also clean the part of the shoe that hooks into the chassis hanger. Sparking is normal and an indication of poor contact. Make sure that the shoes are making good contact and there is sufficient spring tension.

    Another thing to do regularly is clean the track. Remove dust with vacuum or rags. Apply WD40 to a clean cloth and wipe track down in 3-4 foot sections. Refold cloth as necessary. After about 20-30 minutes remove excess WD40 by applying Denatured Alcohol to a clean cloth and repeating the cleaning process. If rails are rusty or otherwise corroded then go over them with fine sandpaper until clean and then clean the track.

        Here is a good site if you want to identify an HO chassis: http://www.modelmotorist.com/web-content/idchass.jsp
        Parts for old inline chassis may be hard to find. Slot Car Central is a good place to start. JAG Hobbies also has some parts.
