I just opened up n R3 Ford G.T. it seems that the magnets are weak or something. It does not have the same gripping power as R2 and R1. Has anyone else noticed this too? Is it the tires are taller?? Input please Thanks
I hear ya, Iwill try a super g+ and I want lights I may have to go srt
A trick one of my friends showed me when the SRT first came out is this: On the rear of the car between the 2 traction magnets (sorry no pic.) is a piece of plastic that will drag when you put AJs double flanged plastic rims with really low tires. If you trim this down you will get a really, really fast car. I have one real low and actually had to super glue that piece in to hold every thing together. It doesn't work to well on really small windy tracks but, on a bigger track it will fly and hold the corners like nobody's business! If you have a timer you can check it out and see some real fast lap times.
Caution: When these babies do fly off the track don't get mad if they put a hole in your drywall. lol
You can easily tell if you have not taken enough plastic off of that piece if your lanes are painted as the colors will show up on your chassis on that piece between the traction magnets. Different levels of tires and trimming will let you have different handling cars. How low can you go?
NOS Afx front tires can be used to eliminate the rubbing problem. If you want to get rid of the excess slop from the enlarged front axle holes you can either fill them in with CA or epoxy, or use a TO front axles (you have to ream out the front rims, or use rear rims. One of those rears will need reaming to keep the front independant.)
Well, I swaped the magnets with good a/fx magnets same thing too little grip. It has the original x-trac tires so its not too far away to the rails. I am a little confused at this point. When I lift an old a/fx it has much better attraction to the track. I am lost?????
Measure the distance between the bottom of the Chassis and the rails. The rear axle hole may be further down towards the rails thus pushing the magnets up higher. Compare the axle holes to a chassis that has good grip
