Re: Cars : Which cars do you want to see produced.

When I resumed my interest and started on 24ghz cars, I had to remake body moulds(and vac, forming machine!) and got as far as remaking the Porsche 908 and Ferrari 312 in 1/32 scale. I don't have stock of these but perhaps could be persuaded to make a few. Still have decals also. Also I have both th...

Re: Your status(on MAgracing) and NO 1 wish for MagRacing future.

Hi Kim, A stock of motors was the one item I did retain after selling Magracing. I am using these same motors in my 1/24 scale cars and, surprisingly, the cars are, in my opinion, quite fast enough. This is probably due to the larger radius turns allowing greater speed into the straights and therefo...

Re: Anyone wanna take over the fora?

Many thanks for your efforts Keld. Disappointing that nothing has come of it yet. Except that most people seem to have had a lot of enjoyment from Magracing so things can't be all bad. Hard to know what exactly is the problem but at the moment it is lack of availability of everything needed to race....

Lapcounter progress

DSCF0917.JPG When I first experimented with a lap counter some time ago, all seemed fine but this time I have had more problems. The 5v counters which I used initially were no longer available and the higher voltage ones I did get seemed less reliable. The main problem was getting a double count ea...

Re: Latest News from Magnetic Racing

Hi Ken, Good to hear of your continued interest. I can't offer much advice re. old cars as all mine are now converted to 2.4g but I do have some motor pinions if that will help. If you can confirm your address, I will send them. Regards Wes

Re: 1/24 scale 2.4g Magracing.

My 1/24 cars are running well now and progress is slow but steady. Pic shows my 1/24 Ferrari 312pb. This car was perhaps the shortest wheelbase WSC sports car (about 95mm in 1/24) so if everything fits in there can be no problem. The track rod/steering servo arm magnets are now 4mm dia. and the serv...

Re: 1/24 scale 2.4g Magracing.

Looks good David, I like the steam sound. What we need now is a Ferrari V8 sound! Attached hopefully are pics of my latest 1/24 prototypes. Going to 1/24 has been quite difficult. Not just a question of increasing size by 33%. The mass/weight of the model is more than 33% and I think that the magnet...

Re: 1/24 scale 2.4g Magracing.

Good to see the interest in 1/24 cars. The radio you need Keld is Flysky fs-gt2b, as photo. I just googled this and the cheapest came out at £ 18.99 , around 22 euro. on e-bay. This model will include a rechargeable battery in the controller and the standard 2/3 channel receiver. Be sure to get this...
