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
