JL/AW mags were stronger, at least compared to the few pairs of Super II mags I had. I believe the official "Fray" rules went to only JL/AW mags a few years ago simply because it was easier to tech all the cars. As far as I know. ECHORR/VHORS still allows any non-MT Aurora mags in SS T-Jets.Not quit as glowing of a review but definitely more precise. I wish he would have compared them to Super II magnets. I'm wondering if Super II magnets weren't as good as the AW JL's or perhaps weren't allowed in those classes.
Dan pretty much says it all, and it seems to concur with your findings:This unit is a non-calibrated unit and is used for making comparisons only. It will not provide an accurate gauss reading.
These are ceramic magnets made from some of the highest grade ferrite available and are stronger than the current magnets offered by AW and on par with the magnets used in the original Johnny Lightning T-Jets.
Perhaps more important than the overall strength is that the strength of these magnets is very consistent and are matched very closely.
Bingo!!! I hate trashing a car just for it's magnets. Well done Dash!Another important factor to consider is that these magnets are available without having to purchase a complete AW/JL chassis (or multiple chassis to get a matched set of mags), of which you may or may not have any other usable parts from a racers perspective.
Exactly! That is why our Club (Front Range HO racing) has purchased so many of these magnets. Not only are they consistent in their strength readings, but we can supply new racers with quality magnets at a very low cost (without having to purchase a complete chassis for just the magnets).
It all depends what chassis you use... The magnet cavities on Aurora chassis are way inconsistent.Purchased 10 pr.
What I like: Price, Strength, Well matched.
What I don't like: Still need to make modifications to fit chassis (Similar to JL Magnets in that regard).
Overall, Thumbs Up!
