Re: KK-CH01-24scale-New-motorpod

Hi Kim, I was looking at your new "motor pod" 1/24/scale. I admire your talent for functional design . That really looks good. the rear motor setup is pretty cool also. I like the rear axle bushings. Some of my older mag racer chassis have excessive clearence in the axle holes due to wear....

RIDE HIGHT; For my application , 1970s "Stockcars" on a scale 1/4 mile oval, more clearence is desireable. The original chassis Wes Rayner design could bottom out on certain places on my track, especially on the infield. sometimes being stranded. The larger dia. wheels of 1/24 scale will b...

Re: MagRacing shop coming alive.

1/24 scale conversion. Currently have 17 running chassis that I need to convert to 1/24th scale. I will use the existing hardware {except wheels]. Do you think Shapeways could scale up some bases for me . Recently bought 2 CK2 chassis. Thanks ,Ken

Re: Latest News from Magnetic Racing

Good to hear from you Wes. Yes my address is the same. 5-6 spare pinions would do . let me know the cost. The only pinion I could find close was old "Aurora" HO scale hardware. Had to glue it on the shaft to keep it from spinning. Bought some new 10440 batteries and the power up problem in...

Re: F1 Stockcar racer

Yes fellas, The simple small oval is the easiest to learn to drive on. My scale 1/32 quarter mile motordrome can be driven on the racing "groove" by only using the throttle. Thus saving the battery. I'm still waiting for some real race drivers to try out this track. I did help out in the p...
