  • 997's anyone?

    Instead of starting a new series right away, how about racing NINCO 997's for the next few weeks to help our guys who are going to Germany get ready? Anyone else think this might be a good idea? We should should also plan to hold some of the races at LZB and/or SlingShot to get some experience on NINCO track.

    For two weeks, just as much as I can!

      I'm building them up as fast as I am able, with the time that I have. Right now
      I will not work on other slot car projects, gotta focus. But, I'll race them
      on any track, ninco would be ideal, but it is not everything.

        Hey Jon, I thought that, too, but the Ferrari that won the regional on Scaley Sport track was dead in the water on Ninco. In the time you have before Germany, it may be a good idea to do your testing on Ninco every time, if possible.

          Yeah, I agree with Kurt on this one. I took my Supra to SlingShot last night and tried to run it on their NINCO track, but it would just go straight at some of the corners and wouldn't hook up at all. This same Supra was turning record laps on my Scaley Classic track, so be careful where you do your setup.

            Got 2 997's setup. 1 with 17inch rears and 1 with 15inch rears. Right now they both **** me off.

              It may also be worthwhile to test one using the stock wheels, believe it or not.

                Either you are not cheating enough, or you need more glue!!







                This has probably been covered, but does NINCO even make a Shore 25 tire that will work
                on a 15" wheel?? It would not be good to be relying on this setup, only to get to Stuttgart and be told no tires are available.

                  Kurt,

                  I would consider using stock wheels, but the problem is the hand-out tires will be Shore A-25 19x10 slicks, not the 20.5x11.5 slicks. The 19x10's are supposed to be for the narrow 15's & 17's. They are ok with the 15's, but they cup and actually form a flat spot when mounted on a 17.

                  Ninco Bob posted the NWC Porsche spec sheet somewhere in the Ninco Forum along with the "fix" for the 997.


                  edit: I forgot to mention that after trying out the two different 19x10 tires, the ones that are "truer" are the ribbed 19x10's. The slick 19x10 has uneven rubber throughout and has a flat spot. The ribbed ones do not. Check it out.

                    Sounds to me....

                    ...like you better take some sort of tire truing jig to Germany. You need to get the inside scoop from Ninco Bob as to which tires are OK, and what they will have on hand to pass out as the spec tire for the World Cup, ribbed or slick.

                      Even if the tires have flat spots, remember that any tire you get will true itself on the track. You'll have 6 hours of running time, and they're going to true up in short order.

                      I do know that the best tuned 997 in the club has stock wheels on it, but I wonder how those wheels will hold up after 6 hours with a lot of traction.

                        It's not the wheels that are the problem. It's the tire being so out of round. Plus, we can't use the stock rear wheels, we'd have to use stock front wheels in the rear to fit the 19x10's.

                        That's pretty much all you can do, run the car until the tires true up. The car runs great down here @ SlingShot. Was running low 33's with the car and no random de-slots. It's just annoying to see a car hop.

                          Why do you need the stock fronts in the rear? We've been able to use the stock rears.

                            Kurt,

                            The hand-out tire for the World Cup is the Ninco Shore A-25 19x10 slicks. The tire that fits the wide stock wheels and pro-race wheels are the 20.5x11.5's. You cannot fit a 19x10 on the wide wheels.

                              That would be a problem. I bet you could get the appropriate tires as your hand-out if you asked to use the stock wheels. I mean, the stock wheels are legal -- you have to be able to get tires for them.
