Re: 1/24 scale 2.4g Magracing.

Good looking body and chassis Wes. Now you need to design that chassis with an adjustable wheelbase.

Re: 1/24 scale 2.4g Magracing.

Wes, your car appears to handle very well. What size magnet did you use in the steering arm to follow the guide wire in the track? Also, what is the diameter of the guide wire in the track?

Re: Availability of Cars

Jim, It’s difficult to fit an LMP body like the one pictured below, to a magracing chassis, but it is possible. https://i1371.photobucket.com/albums/ag318/nedphillips46/IMG_20190313_121519_zpsf5vlb0tb.jpg This kind of body with deep NASA ducts in front restricts the left and right turning of the fro...

Re: track building

@Ned: what do you mean, that there are hundreads of cars, which are not used anymore? Does everybody give up this hobby, or change to slotcars? I know that Wes Raynor, the original developer of MagRacing, sold hundreds of cars. Wes sold that business to Martin Price and Martin’s business partner wh...

Re: track building

Thanks Keld. I would be interested if you do have a spare car you could sell me. I am not sure what to do now. If it is not possible to buy new cars, in particular ones with an adjustable chassis, I can see little point in continuing to build my track. I will put it on hold for a while while I cons...

Re: track building

I suggest that you make your own. They are easy and cheap to make. All you need is the steel plate material and tin snips to cut the plates. Just make sure they are completely flat with uniform thickness and no rough & jagged edges. Before making them, read all of the post on the magic of lane chang...

Try to buy some used cars or build them from kits.

Re: 1/24 scale 2.4g Magracing.

I always hoped that I could convert my 1/24 slotcars, so I will follow your progress. But I read that there was no brake on the new board from Heliumsfrog, that is essential if driving 1/24 they are heavyer than 1/32 Don’t worry about brakes Keld. A car built with a board sold by Magentice Racing (...

Re: Three Chassis with Different Transmitters and Electronic

The Magnetic Racing board doesn't have braking at all, so I am guessing the motor generates back emf or something which slows the motor down more quickly and feels like braking...The board also has "Cruise control" on channel 3 which may be of use to some people. . Martin, you may not have delibera...
