Joe, I always wondered about that as well.... but I don't use extra traction magnets on any of my Pancake chassis....nope- I just won't ! Drifting in the corners is what makes me happyI suspect that traction magnets on the Auto World pancake motor cars should unbalance the magnetic field on the motor too. Has anyone done an RPM check with and without magnets?
interesting, my choice is based on tracks!I use the standard traction magnet orientation on inline motor cars and not high down force.
With the open polarity of the top of the traction magnet the same as the inside of the motor magnet.
That way the traction magnet works with the motor magnet and not against it like high down force.
