Tips and tricks about building a car. painting it a making it run smooth.
mercedes 450slc 5.0, i took chassie from 190e, fortunly the same wheelbase. its a g.f.k. boby from andys modellbau, by the way thank you andy. car is very fast, but frontendschimmy. i think the frontwheels needs better bearings.
i fliped a 6x2 magnet uder my 5x5 guidingmagnet and changed the magnets at the steeringcoil into 5x3
its never full speed, because the straights are to short. it can run much faster, but at higher speed i get frontendschimmy.
hi all, i tested my 1:24 a lot, and i think to run this perfect ,we have to change the wire and the suspension (longer guidearm). its not so much the weight, as i was thinking, its much more the longer wheelbase that makes the problems. there are much more forces on the guidingmagnet. my 300 sel,,monster,,was 17 gramms heavier than the 1:24 lightweight 450 slc. it is a resine boby, and i dont cutted it out from the inside. i made the monster lighter, but it dont gets quicker,because of loosing grip on the rearaxle. and its much more tricky to drive. i will concentrate my activitis in 1:32. there are high detailed bodys,wich look very nice,and its not a big problem to fit the chassie to the most (greater) bodys. also the 1:24 track has to be much wider than a 1:32 it looks like on a little karttrack. it was a try but i will work with 1:32.greetings to all markus
