Re: KK-P1 proto up and running

Kim, You've come up with some interesting ideas. I especially like your idea: The steel bolts (magnetic) in front of the servo can be used to trim guide centering and centering lift. You can lift the guide-magnet at straits to increase speed and still have good tracion at cornering. ( At least in th...

Re: New MagRacing track

Re: New MagRacing track

For 1/32, I recommend a minimum of 6.5cm between straight parallel lanes and a min of 8cm between lanes on the corners.

Re: New MagRacing track

That one corner looks awfully tight. What is the minimum radius that you intend to use?

Re: The Magic of Lane Change Plates

Lane change plates are easy to make from any steel plate .006” to .010” thick. The side of a tin can (the kind used for soup and fruit) could probably be used. Cut to desired shape with tin snips.

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?
