Re: 1/24 scale overview.

Hello Ned, Thank you for your email. Your offer of help is most appreciated. I've browsed through the link you sent me and am mighty impressed at the amount of time and thought you have put into the chassis and component parts required to assemble a Mag Car. As I've mentioned, I have very little bac...

Re: 1/24 scale overview.

Hi Kim, Thanks for your interest. I've recently retired and now have a little more time on my hands. I bought one of the early mag racers from Wes, followed the instructions and built a test track. It all work beautifully but I never seemed to be able to find the time to build a proper track. I've r...

Re: 1/24 scale overview.

Hello Wes, As I've managed to get my my 2013 McLaren chassis running and I just happened to look at the Magracing Forum and see a new post from yourself. I've started building a new track and was wondering where on earth I could get some more cars and hand controllers to use on it. Unfortunately I h...

Re: New MagRacing track

Hi Kilko
I've tried to send Wes a PM but it doesn't seemed to have
gone. Probably me, incompetent with age.

However I did find an email address going back seven years and sent
Wes a message and it hasn't bounced back so I hope it went ok.

Re: New MagRacing track

Hello Wes,
Replacement pinions - This is good news.

It's probably not wise to put my home address on the Forum and I can't find your contact details.
Perhaps you might still have my details?

Re: New MagRacing track

Hi Kiklo It's good to see some Magracing activity out there. Now I've retired properly, I'd very much like to get back into the hobby but I can't see a way forward without the easy availability of new cars and replacement parts to keep them running. I currently have a Magracing McLaren (circa 2013) ...

Re: Availability of Cars

Hi Ned,
Wow!
You've done a cracking job on that. It looks great.
I've now found all my Magracing parts and my old test track in the loft,
so tomorrow I'll start figuring out how to re-assemble it to confirm
everything still works.

For now,

Jim

Re: track building

Re: Neds Post 30th Oct 18 What a sensible and balanced post. Ned, you put into words exactly my issue with the cars - lack of the ability to obtain the highly detailed bodies as offered by brands like Slot it etc.. Having recently retired I was thinking about taking up Magracing again as my hobby bu...

Availability of Cars

Hi,

It's great to see Magracing on the up again.

I've been away from Magracing for a while but having more time on my hands now I'm thinking of getting started again.
I see there have been some upgrades while I've been away.
My question is, are the cars available in the UK and if so where from?
