82 gt, welcome to HT. What scale are you looking at, guessing it is not HO based on your specs (1/32, 1/24?). That will help others answer your question.

OK, afraid I am an HO person, so can't help you. Hopefully someone else will jump in.

it is helpful to know what power you are running on.
battery or AC converted DC power supply?
what voltage?
how many AMPs available.

also, what type of track?
how long from start line to finish line?
are you racing heads up (both cars leaving at same time)?
or
dial in bracket racing where the slower dialed in car gets a head start?

what is allowed for traction assistance?
is "glue" allowed?

Wish You Were Here
